Voice Compare » Yu-Gi-Oh! » Odion Ishtar

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Odion Ishtar with sound clips and images.
Odion Ishstar AKA Rashid Ishtar in the original Japanese anime and manga is the adoptive brother of Marik and Ishizu Ishtar.

Odion became second-in-command of the Rare Hunters with Marik as leader. Even when mistreated or had his life threatened he remained loyal to Marik. During the Battle City tournament Odion pretended to be Marik while Marik himself entered the tournament under the guise of Namu. Odion is the only person capable of suppressing the dark half of Marik.

In the English dub version of the anime by 4Kids Entertainment Odion was voiced by J David Brimmer. During flashbacks as a teenager and young adult, Odion was voiced by Ted Lewis.

In a lesser known English dub by Odex Ltd Odion was voiced by Brian Zimmerman.

J. David Brimmer is my favorite from this group. Ted Lewis did well voicing a younger version of the character. Brian Zimmerman's voice is quite excellent too.

J David Brimmer just gave this role so much weight and presence. Ted Lewis did a good young Odion too. Brian Zimmerman...he just sounds too creepy and evil sounding, almost like Vicious from "Cowboy Bebop" or Toguro from "Yu Yu Hakusho." And I also keep expecting to hear him start talking about the Gummi Bears.

J. David Brimmer for the older Odion (aka Rashid).
Ted Lewis for the younger Odion (aka Rashid).

Brian Zimmerman sounds too evil, though he's pretty good as well.

They all sound decent to me.
Although Zimmerman made him sound evil, which he really isn't. I still liked it, though.
