Number of Comparisons: 4
Franchise: Transformers

Breakdown is a Decepticon from the Transformers series. He is very paranoid and cowardly. As one of the Stunticons, he combines with his team to form the beast Menasor.

Created by NCZ on Jul 19 2010


In his first appearance, Breakdown was voiced by Transformers series regular Jack Angel. He did a decent job for the few lines he got.

The role was inherited by Alan Oppenheimer, who provided the voice for the rest of the series. IMO, Oppenheimer did a great job capturing the essence of Breakdown's characterization; his voice was shaky and stammering, and it fit Breakdown like a glove.

In Transformers: War for Cybertron, Breakdown returns, voiced by Crispin Freeman. He did a really great job for the most part, but his voice was slightly higher than what I'd prefer. Despite that, I enjoyed Crispin's performance, which was enhanced by some hilarious dialogue.

Adam Baldwin voices a different kind of Breakdown in the new Prime series. Since this new incarnation is a big brawler, I think Adam sounded about as deep as you'd expect. It probably wasn't too much of a stretch for someone like him to play such an evil and difficult-to-like character.

In the end, I'll say Alan Oppenheimer brought in the best performance, with Crispin Freeman a close second, Adam Baldwin third, and Jack Angel fourth, mainly because he didn't get much to work with.
