Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Wilhelm with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Xenosaga

Wilhelm is the main antagonist of the Xenosaga series whom made his debut in the first game of the series. Wilhelm is the founder and head CEO of Vector Industries whom was also the Executive Committee Director of the Galaxy Federation until a decade before this story begins. Wilhelm is similar to chao as they are both incredibly calm intellectuals whom have lived for over 6000 years but Wilhelm is a very manipulative operator whom was behind many of the events over the course of the series. Wilhelm also has a mysterious force of bodyguards known as the Testaments whom closely serve while Wilhelm's sadistic tendencies are greatly implied it is also greatly implied on whether if his grand plans are actually good for the universe or not.

Today on the Xenosaga VC section we take a look at the main villain of the series... WILHELM! In order to change things up I shall go with the format that I did with KOS-MOS' VC Review as well...

Richard Cansino- His voice and performance for the role was light and regal which suit the role rather well, I also liked the rather light European accent that he did for Wilhelm which was a fairly nice touch.

Jason Spisak- Kind of like Richard's voice for the role but a bit lower and without the accent which is not a bad thing. However I suppose Jason does get some points on how his performance probably sounds the most sinister of the three here.

Vic Mignoga- Vic did a rather good job playing Wilhelm as the elegant sophisticate that he is, granted Vic's work on the role doesn't sound as sinister as his game counterparts but his work on the role still works nevertheless.

Overall this is a tough one as they all have their pros and cons so I suppose for once I will pretty much go with a tie here...

Vic Mignogna is the most neutral of the lot so I'll be going with him although both Jason Spisak and Richard Cansino are good in the role.

Lol Spisak sounds like Joshua Seth, then again he did voice Tai Kamiya after Seth left.

1 Vic
2 Jason
3 Richard

Ooh I realize that Richard and Vic both also voiced Vega in Street Fighter II V

All good but I'd place Richard first, Vic second, and Jason third.

Cansino or Spisak. I can't decide! I almost mistook Spisak's voice for Seth's, so I'll stick with Cansino...

Not a fan of the guy, but I'm going with Vic Mignogna. He's the most natural of the lot and....honestly I could barely recognize him behind the voice. o_O
