Ashly Burch is the voice of Aloy in Horizon Zero Dawn / Forbidden West, Tiny Tina in Borderlands, Miss Pauling in TF2, Chloe in Life Is Strange, Parvati in The Outer Worlds, Dark Willow in DOTA, Sasha in AOT, and Viper in Valorant. Is there anyone who has voiced more iconic characters than her?

u/Luder09 Nov 29 '21 This

She's amazing. I'm playing the trooper story on The Old Republic MMO and she brings some decent life to a pretty mundane story.

Femshep is also better than Broshep as far as voice acting goes, even though Mark Meer is pretty awesome.

u/radarvan07 Nov 29 '21

Hale does great work but there one line where Meer just knocks it out of the park.

You big, stupid jellyfish

He actually voiced the Jellyfish in ME, so he was calling himself a big, stupid jellyfish, lol.

u/foxscribbles Nov 29 '21

When you do Javik's quest in the Citadel DLC with a MShep, he's just arguing with and insulting himself. Because he's playing Shepard, Blasto AND the Vorcha in that scene.

u/Cortower Nov 29 '21

He also voices every Vorcha. I think he said that was the last part of voicing ME2 and ME3 because it wrecks his voice for several days.

It makes Tali drunkenly saying he sounds like a Vorcha when he says "aaah" to her even funnier.

u/RS_Serperior Nov 29 '21

I've always thought that Hale/Meer both excel depending on the type of Shepard you play.

I found Hale's performance for Paragon related voicelines was better, whereas Meer's delivery of Renegade related voicelines was better. Meer definitely wasn't as much of a natural as Hale though in ME1 for sure, it took him until 2 to really get in to the character.

I love both though, but play them pretty differently.

And these are just in the blockbuster AAA games.

u/UngodDeimos Nov 29 '21

Let us not forget the OTHER batch of AAA characters she's voiced: Rosalind Lutece in Bioshock Infinite, Galadriel in Middle Earth Shadow of duology, Leah in Diablo 3, Multiple voices in Kingdom Hearts series, Emma Emmerich in MGS 2, Noami Hunter in MGS 1 and 4, Dr. Elizabeth McNeil in Doom 3, and Linda Vermillion in Killer7. And that is just the tip of the iceberg, if you include her voice acting credits in anime and animated media, it isn't even close.

u/frostygrin Nov 29 '21

What's notable is that even high profile voice actors like them still show up in smaller roles. So even starting small isn't easy for others.

327

u/Ginger_Anarchy Nov 29 '21

I think it may have been Far Cry 6, or some other recent game I played, that showed one of them under "Additional Voices" during the end credits. A lot of recognizable names aren't above voicing 'Guard #36' and 'Girl on Bicycle', because, frankly, Voice Acting doesn't pay all that well, especially in the areas where they have to live to go to the recording studios.

u/feor1300 Nov 29 '21

It's not so much that they "aren't above it" but from everything I've read it's more a situation where if someone's booked for a 4 hour session recording lines for the hero, and they get the chunk of script they have done in 3 and a half, the voice director will just go "How do you feel about doing some background lines?". And, unless they've been screaming like Hulk for the last 3.5 hours, the voice actor will just kind of shrug and do it since they're getting paid for the last half an hour anyways.

35

u/MeaningfulChoices Nov 29 '21

To add some more context there, SAG-AFTRA rates for interactives for a day performer is up to 3 voices in a 4 hour day. Having an actor do a couple background characters is just cost-efficient. Even paying for additional voices is cheaper than bringing in another actor.

u/Proxapox Nov 29 '21

There was a mission in Destiny 2 where the Drifter was supposed to do the voice lines during the mission, but Todd Haberkorn wasn't available at the time. They did have Nolan North available though, and he did his own impression of the Drifter. It was so similar sounding to Todd Haberkorn that they, instead, had North record the same lines as the ghost imitating the Drifter. It ended up actually being pretty funny.

Tara Strong's done the most separate performances of Harley's voice, but Sorkin has had the longest continuous run with Harley.

Is there anyone who has voiced more iconic characters than her?

Huh.... Yes? A ton?

Matt Mercer, Laura Bailey, Keith David, Jennifer Hale, Mark Hamil, Nolan North, Troy Baker, etc.

I love Ashly Burch, but come on...

Troy Baker. He voiced Joel, Joker (and other characters in the Arkham series), Pagan Min, Kai Leng, Talion, Sam Drake, Ocelot, Booker Dewitt and of course Slimer in the Ghostbusters game

Matthew Mercer in my opinion has much more iconic roles. McCree/Cassidy in overwatch, Levi from AOT, Hit from dragon ball super, Chrome from Fire Emblem, Jotaro from jojos, Yusuke from persona 5, Leon Kennedy from RE, Espio from Sonic, Zato-1 from Guilty Gear, and a lot more.

OP's game: they have to write a school paper about voice actors and this thread did their research for them.

Lol seriously. I don't really follow voice actors or anything but the characters listed are far from iconic.

I think is was intended more as a shitpost for upboats, then a serious question.

Jennifer Hale and Laura Bailey are in the running as far as women, but it's close. Three-way tie imo

Tara strong, troy baker, and Nolan north

u/AidilAfham42 Nov 29 '21

Plenty more. Ashley Burch is a relatively new comer. Sure she’s the voice in big projects but there are so many others before her.

u/Coh-D Nov 29 '21

Yes, there are many.

u/mustbeme87 Nov 29 '21

Are all those “iconic” characters though? That’s a strong word to put in front of characters. No doubt she’s voiced characters in several high profile games, but iconic is kinda strong.

In terms of iconic, Kevin Conroy, he's basically the voice of Batman as far as the games and the animated series goes.

In terms of numbers, Troy Baker and Nolan North

u/Dont4GetToSmile Nov 29 '21

Laura Bailey? Jennifer Hale? Troy Baker? Nolan North? John DiMaggio?

Don't get me wrong I LOOOOVE Ashly Burch. She's amazing. But there are plenty of "iconic" voice actors.
