Voice Compare » Transformers » Rumble

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Rumble with sound clips and images.
Rumble was one of the original Decepticons from the first Transformer toy assortment. Though little, he was feisty and could shake the ground by turning his arms into piledrivers, hence the name. He was identical to his twin brother Frenzy in terms of build, abilities, and even voice, but in terms of colour, they were different; Frenzy was blue and Rumble was red. Upon their transition to TV, their colours were reversed by some unknown error. It's best not to bring this up in a Transformers community.

Time for another Transformers voice compare! Right after his brother, Frenzy, we've got Rumble. In the first Transformers show, you should know the story about the twins' colours above. Anyway, both of them were voiced by the VA legend Frank Welker. The voice he used for both of them was practically the same, but it was still a great voice nonetheless, giving them personality and charm.

In Transformers: War for Cybertron, the Decepticon brothers return, once again working for Soundwave. Voiced by Keith Silverstein, this (blue) incarnation of Rumble sounds a bit "excited" or happy. It's a good performance, but Rumble didn't sound aggressive enough. In the end, I think Frank Welker emerges victorious.

Keith Silverstein is nice, but I've gotta give this to Frank Welker.

Gotta love people voting for actors doing impressions of the originators. (SARCASM)

@CynixBox Even though I try to sound as authentic to the originators too for my G1 parodies on YT.

@CynixBox I know, right? It's so silly for people to vote for who they view as the best voice, even if their favourite is just an impression of a previously-used voice!

Don't they know that if their favourite is an impression, they should just vote for the original anyway?

If Rumble ever appears in The Film Series, He should look a lot like Frenzy, But black and I think Tom Kenny should voice.

I wonder of Yuri Lowenthal would make a good Rumble?

@Finister2 I think Yuri would make an excellent Rumble. What do you think of Josh Keaton as the character?

Stunned by the results. Oof. Didn't think Frank could possibly lose this one. :P

Both are good, but I think I'm gonna have to go with Keith Silverstein for this Rumble.
