http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/richard_epcar.jpg '''Richard Epcar can break you in two.''' But enough stubs, let's get on with the article. Richard Epcar has been acting for well over 30 years, starting out in theater (as the Count himself in ''Dracula'', among others) before moving into television and voice acting. While still relatively new at voice acting, Richard already had a few years under his belt by the time that he was introduced to his first anime, ''Anime/{{Robotech}}''. He is best known for his portrayal of Batou from Anime/GhostInTheShell and Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex, which he considers to be his all-time favorite role, and has appeared in numerous anime and video games. His deep-yet-laid back voice and considerable range has proven to be perfect for playing {{Badass}}es, {{Large Ham}}s, and the occasional mentor and father figure. He is also an ADR director, doing such works as ''Anime/LupinIII'', ''Anime/{{Noein}}'', ''[[Manga/BoboboBoBoboBo Bobobo-Bo Bobo-Bo]]'', and ''Film/RiseOfThePlanetOfTheApes''. Outside of voice acting, Richard has appeared in television shows such as {{Matlock}}, Series/{{Columbo}}, and Series/BabylonFive; movies such as 1992's ''Memoirs of an Invisible Man'' and ''Gunfighter'' in 1999, commercials for ''Coke Zero'', and other mediums. In 2008, he started up a voice production company "Epcar Entertainment, Inc" with his wife Ellyn Stern. He's also a drummer for the ''LA River Band'', and a huge fan of Franchise/JamesBond. He's notable as the only ''Lupin'' voice actor to have voiced every male main character in the franchise save for the World's Greatest Master Thief himself. ---- !!Notable roles by Richard Epcar: * Etemon and Myotismon (Vamdemon) in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' * Batou in ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'' and ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'' * [[Manga/BoboboBoBoboBo Bobobo-Bo Bobo-Bo]] himself * ''Anime/LupinIII'' roles, companies, and works: ** Daisuke Jigen in the Creator/{{Geneon}} dub of the Anime/LupinIIIRedJacket series. ** Goemon Ishikawa XIII in the Creator/MangaEntertainment dub of the movie ''Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro''. ** Inspector Koichi Zenigata in the Creator/{{FUNimation}} dub of the ''Anime/LupinIIITheWomanCalledFujikoMine'' series. ** We expect him to dub for Fujiko Mine soon. * Zangetsu and Go Koga in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' * Halloween in ''Manga/{{MAR}}'' * Manda in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' * Racer X in ''Anime/SpeedRacer X'' * Wheeler in ''Anime/CaptainHarlock'' * Cancer and Libra in ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'' * Kyouki Koriyama and the titular character in ''Anime/{{Noein}}'' * The Elf Priest in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} III'' * Dr. Gabriel Lantis in ''[[VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory Star Ocean: Second Evolution]]'' * Grier in ''WesternAnimation/HuntikSecretsAndSeekers'' * Inspector Heinrich Lunge in ''Manga/{{Monster}}'' * Tadao Hiiragi in ''Manga/LuckyStar'' * Ziggy in the ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' series * [[VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} Demitri Maximoff]] and [[VideoGame/ArTonelico Bourd Rade]] on ''VideoGame/CrossEdge'' * SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and Raiden in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatVsDCUniverse'' ** Raiden in the [[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 2011 game]]. ** SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' * Azazel in ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}} 6'' (Scenario Campaign only) * Mr Noisy in the American dub of ''WesternAnimation/TheMrMenShow'' * Dong Zhuo in ''DynastyWarriors'' 4 onwards * Baofu in the American translation of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'' * [[BoisterousBruiser Flay Gunnar]] and [[ExtremeDoormat Zeppel Kriever]] of ''VideoGame/ManaKhemiaAlchemistsOfAlrevis'' & ''ManaKhemia2FallOfAlchemy'' * Colonel Zachary Arnold in ''VideoGame/SupremeCommander'' * Ansem Seeker of Darkness, and Xehanort, in the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' series from ''KingdomHeartsII'' onwards. * Skywarp and Additional Voices in ''VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron'' ** Armorhide in ''Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'' * Commander Daguza Mackle in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn'' * Kanbei Kuroda in ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' * Kurt in ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' * Saikhan in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' * Guld Goa Bowman in ''Anime/MacrossPlus'' * Hiko Seijuro XIII and Raijuta Isurugi in ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' * Houndoom in ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' * Kannosaki in ''Anime/WitchHunterRobin'' * Taichiro Sugai and the Arena Announcer in the ''DotHackGUGames'' * The Narrator in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' * Emperor Walhart in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' * Hope in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' ----
