Voice Compare » Trigun » Nicholas D. Wolfwood
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Nicholas D. Wolfwood with sound clips and images.
Nicholas D. Wolfwood is one of the main protagonists of the Trigun series whom made his debut in the 9th episode of the anime series. Wolfwood is a traveling Christian Priest whom at first seems to be a quirky and comical guy who is trying to raise money for his church but over the course of the story it is revealed that he does have a rather dark past as he was raised as an assassin since childhood. Wolfwood and Vash have joined forces to fight evil but unlike Vash he is willing to kill however Wolfwood's willingness to kill does cause him a lot of moral conflict. In the anime Wolfwood has a budding romance with Milly Thompson over the course of the series (however its only in the anime as it is severely downplayed in the Manga though).
EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Trigun VC section here is the 3rd (and most likely last for now) VC and it shall be for none other than... NICHOLAS D. WOLFWOOD! Let us begin...
Jeff Nimoy- I know this may seem like a bold claim but this is quite possibly one of Jeff's most renowned performances in his career and lets just say I can understand that. Jeff's voice and performance for the role felt very natural as alike Vash he ca go from loud and comical to giving a more somber and dramatic performance. Jeff's work as Wolfwood is easily one of Jeff's best performances and a fine example of the voice work in the show.
Brad Hawkins- Brad's work on the role is good as his voice for the role while not quite as good as Jeff's does work for the role pretty well. Brad's performance is certainly not bad as it does suit Wolfwood considering his role in the movie (as he spends a good portion of the movie regretfully forcing himself to temporarily work for the main villain of the movie). But still Brad's work on the role is pretty good especially when you view it on its own merits.
Overall while I am clearly going with Jeff Nimoy here but Brad Hawkins did a pretty good job as well.
