Takeshi Nagasako is the best, but since he's not here, I'll vote for Mark Berry.

Like Link, I'm not really fond of either of them here.

I guess I'll go with Mark Berry for being more entertaining, though.

Link : The Faces of Evil. So bad, it's hilarious. I just have to vote for Mark Berry for that reason xD!

You know what looking back here and now as i am unable to devote Len Carlson or Mark Berry, i don't think that any of them sounded Ganon-like from here and from what i could imagine right now.

It would be totally cool if Keith Szarabajka were to do the voice of ganondorf i don't care which incarnation in games but i would prefer him to do the voice of ganondorf in twilight princess style.

Have him voiced by David Kaye or Tom Wyner and call it a day.

Wow the CDI Ganon is winning but I'll go with Len

I heard Matthew Mercer voice Ganon in Nin10doh to the 64th Power and he was awesome. He should be the official voice of Ganon. Matthew Mercer and Kevin Michael Richardson are my top 2 choices for Ganon.

I think Frank Welker would make a good voice of Ganon. I think for live action actors, Amitabh Bachchan should play his Gerudo form.

So Link's greatest enemy is a pig?

@Music Meister He's a man who uses godly powers to transform into a beast. It's usually a pig because it supposedly reflects his greedy nature.

Im going with Mark Berry beacuse he made ganon sound evil(and created memorable memes).Len carlson is also good and very creepy but i prefer Mark more

Poor Ganon, your voice portrayals never did you justice at all :( I'll slightly, but ONLY slightly vote for Mark Berry as I could see it fitting Ganon, albeit with MUCH better voice direction.

Michael Wincott and Keith David would be amazing choices for Ganondorf IMO, but I think Fred Tatasciore would be perfect for both forms of the King of Evil.

@chaosincarnate Keith S. using something similar to his Didact voice without effects would be pretty sweet as well. :)

@chaosincarnate I would personally want Jason Issacs to voice Ganon

Len Carlson was pretty entertaining, so he wins it, but Mark Berry sounded more realistic for the character.

Mark Berry sounds closer to what Ganon should sound like, but the performance and character wasn't all that great. Len Carlson's voice was unfitting, but he was at least very entertaining.

i'd say that they are both aren't bad, but I would prefer Kyle Hebert or Kevin Michael Richardson.
said at 4:33 PM on Wed Aug 7 2013
@Mrguy22594 Not a bad choice, but Gerald C. Rivers kind of sounds like a slightly deeper version of Len Carlson. I say Kevin Michael Richardson, because he is an expert at voicing giant characters, like Gantu from Lilo and Stitch and Panthro from Thundercats(2011 TV Series).
said at 11:17 AM on Sat Aug 10 2013
@Mrguy22594 Well T.C. Carson is a great choice, so here is my list
T.C.Carson for Ocarina of Time
Kevin Michael Richardson for the older Ganondorf
Gerald C.Rivers or Keith David would be perfect for Demise if he had an english voice actor.
said at 7:51 PM on Fri Sep 20 2013
@TrueMyriad Maybe Clancy Brown, maybe Jonathan Adams, maybe Travis Willingham...
said at 12:27 PM on Fri Oct 4 2013
@TheAtticus LOL at all this hypothetical Ganon voice talk. TP/Brawl Ganondorf always sounded like Mark Hamill or Steve Blum to me, though Gerald C. Rivers wouldn't be bad. Fred Tatasciore, Travis Willingham, or Johnathan Adams would be great for the previous incarnations of Ganon. T.C. Carson has a good voice for the character, but I wouldn't consider him because his yells sound nothing like Ganondorf's.
said at 12:28 PM on Fri Oct 4 2013
@Mrguy22594 Kevin Michael Richardson has voiced a ton of serious, sinister characters. You heard his Tombstone in "The Spectacular Spider-Man?" Or his Darkseid? Or his Shredder? You must not be all familiar with his range if you can't take him seriously.
said at 12:12 PM on Sat Aug 5 2017
@TrueMyriad Ehh.. I like KMR, but depending on the director, he would be asked to do his usual deep evil voice.
said at 1:40 PM on Sat Aug 5 2017
@Ghosty404 KMR would definitely be the more natural voice actor in this situation. Regardless of direction, I think he'd really fit Ganon perfectly

Len Carlson really isn't half bad. Mark Berry, while hilarious, lacks any kind of substance.

I lost it when he said "Die" in Faces of Evil.

Neither of them are good fits for Ganon, but Len Carlson is at least more entertaining in the role.

Even though Len Carlson did a great performance I have to give this one to Mark Berry since the voice fitted Gannon better IMO despite the bad acting.

I voted for the CD-i performance solely because of how hilarious it is.

However, I'm not 100% sure if its Mark Berry doing the voice, elsewhere I have seen En Carlson credited as voicing the character.

@Metabad Can't be him. He's not credited in the game and it was recorded in a different region than where he lives.
said at 11:18 PM on Wed Sep 28 2011
@NCZ Ah, alright.

But how do you know it was specifically Mark Berry who voiced him?
NCZ (Admin)
said at 11:28 PM on Wed Sep 28 2011
@Metabad It's not Paul Wann or Jeffrey Rath. That meant it was down to Jeffrey Nelson or Matt Berry. Figured it's the latter because he sounds the part from what I found (some people joked that Ganon sounded "black". Matt Berry's voice was higher when I heard it, yes, but the deepness in Ganon's voice definitely sounds forced, like it belongs to somebody with a higher range.)

@NCZ Ah, I see.

C'mon, guys, Unknown Voice Actor gave us so many memes!
said at 2:12 PM on Tue Oct 26 2010
@randomguy None of the actors are credited to their respective roles except for Link and Zelda, so it'd be pointless to do so.

@Cat's Tuxedo Not quite pointless. The voice actors' roles aren't named, but I did a bit of digging, and it looks like Ganon is most likely voiced by Mark Berry.

Anyway, while Len Carlson made a pretty good Ganon, Mark has more of a Ganondorf voice.
