Rufus Shinra

Comparison of the voice actors who have been the voice of Rufus Shinra with sound clips and images.

Number of Comparisons: 2
Franchise: Final Fantasy

The heir to the Shinra Electric Power Company, taking over as president upon his father's death. Rufus is arguably even more ruthless than his already cutthroat father, and harbours no particular love for him. As a result, he seeks to run Shinra in his own image, by imposing his own will upon others. In Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Rufus appears seemingly seeking redemption, asking for Cloud's forgiveness and cooperation - in business terms, naturally - when he senses the Remnants of Sephiroth planning to restoke the flames of the Jenova incident.

This is another VC where I feel both options you can't really go wrong with. Going off the sounds of their voices and their styles of acting (probably also a consequence of Rufus's role in VII proper vs Advent Children), Wally's portrayal of Rufus is more like someone who wins people over through rhetoric, while Josh's Rufus is one who wins out by authority. I do really like the sound of Josh's voice, he has a strong, bold smoothness, but there's no doubt the real meat of his performance will come later.
