''"Nekketsu Level, Max!"''

[[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Next, you will say]], "Describe Tomokazu-'''[[VideoGame/BlazBlue GAUNTLET HADES!]]'''-Sugita here, [[Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei and do it in an old-fashioned way]]."

Describe Tomokazu-'''[[VideoGame/BlazBlue GAUNTLET HADES!]]'''-Sugita here, [[Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei and do it in an old-fashioned way]]. HeyThatsMyLine

One of the seiyuus who went from virtually unnoticed to very popular thanks to the anime juggernaut that is ''LightNovel/TheMelancholyOfHaruhiSuzumiya'', where he voiced [[DeadpanSnarker Kyon]]. Before that, some people might recognise him as Hideki from ''Manga/{{Chobits}}'', but, well, that's old news. After his performance as Kyon, he started displaying a wide range of voices, making him one of the best and most revered seiyus in the business today. His forte is most likely the DeadpanSnarker type.

He also has some sort of rivalry with TomokazuSeki, just because [[NamesTheSame they have the same given name]]. They are in fact managed by the same agency [[http://www.atomicmonkey.jp/ Atomic Monkey]] which Seki is a founding member of.

He's very [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKykThbowOk "hardcore"]] according to the [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Blue Radio]] podcast. Plus it's known, from various radio shows and interviews, that he's also a VERY keen gamer and anime {{otaku}}, coming out with references to anime, manga and games even when nobody besides him knows what he's talking about. This is why he's nicknamed "[[FanNickname Freedom Sugita]]" by fans. And no, he is not doing this because he's influenced by his role in ''Manga/{{Gintama}}''. He just happened to be awesome like that. Occasionally, a fellow seiyu or two will catch the references and continue the conversation from there.

He's notable that for a few times, he made some ''spot on'' Creator/NorioWakamoto impressions, once in [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Bururaji]], again in ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' and later when he, along with YuuichiNakamura and TakahiroSakurai, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNkATKq0bUw do so]] while playing a ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' fighting game for the [[SegaGenesis Mega Drive]] (''Yu Yu Hakusho: Makyō Tōitsusen'', to be specific), all picking Wakamoto's character Chu. And narrating it. Later he does it again in ''Manga/SketDance''.

[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_PgfPBSTac Now available as a GPS.]]

He and YuuichiNakamura also host a program called ''Tokyo Encounter'' where they play video games and share some trivia. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments And also goof off.]] That Wakamoto impersonation? It's from that show.

He was also responsible for revealing (well, to be exact getting the confirmation from Creator/MitsuhiroIchiki himself) about the entire mess of the staff of ''LightNovel/KokoroConnect''. Needless to say, he wasn't amused by it.

He, alongside Creator/ArcSystemWorks, revealed at Tokyo Game Show 2012 that they're collaborating on a doujin game called ''Getsuei Academy'' [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2012-09-20/voice-actor-tomokazu-sugita-novel-inspires-video-game written by himself.]] [[http://www.siliconera.com/2013/07/29/blazblue-developers-next-game-was-originally-written-by-ragnas-voice-actor/ And is slated to be an actual game itself]] under the name''Tsukie Academy Kou''. He also proposed and created the design for newcomer [[CampGay Amane Nishiki]] in ''VideoGame/BlazBlueChronophantasma''.

* BadassBaritone
** ArousedByTheirVoice: Often results into this.
* DeadpanSnarker: His defining role.

* LetsPlay: Alongside with YuuichiNakamura, called ''Tokyo Encounter''.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: Not only the Creator/NorioWakamoto impression, but when he plays ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting 2'' with YuuichiNakamura, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11d3GLGID3g he amps up his "image" by picking Takuma while wearing Mr. Karate's Tengu Mask.]]

** [[Series/KamenRiderDenO Ima]][[VideoGame/DragonQuest jin]] for Creator/AsamiImai. "Imajin-chan" stuck to Creator/AsamiImai to the point that even she uses it regularly now.

** [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Mikakongu-senpai]] for MikakoTakahashi.

** Isocchi for Tomomi Isomura.
** Ishiwatari [[VideoGame/GuiltyGear Badguy]] and Ishiwatari Battousai for Creator/DaisukeIshiwatari.
* OneOfUs
* PlayingAgainstType: So one day, Sugita wondered, "Hey, I wanna play some psychotic hammy villain. Can't have [[YuuichiNakamura Nakamura]] [[VideoGame/BlazBlue have all the fun doing that!]]" The result? [[Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear Dr. Ver]].
* PromotedFanboy: He got Creator/ArcSystemWorks to make ''a game for his doujin Getsuei Gakuen'' And as noted above, he also had an influence in creating Amane for ''VideoGame/BlazBlueChronophantasma''.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: With DaisukeOno, TomokazuSeki, MikakoTakahashi, YukoGoto, YuuichiNakamura, and KikukoInoue to name a few out there. English-wise, he shares the role [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Chrom]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfXillia Alvin]] with Creator/MatthewMercer, [[Anime/{{K}} Reisi Munakata]] and [[VideoGame/{{Blazblue}} Ragna the Bloodedge]] with PatrickSeitz, and the roles of [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Kyon]] and [[Manga/{{Chobits}} Hideki Motosuwa]] with CrispinFreeman.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: While he didn't use it in ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' unlike PatrickSeitz, he can do [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Wq-Sq9WcIE#t=00m04s an epic one]] in ''Manga/{{Gintama}}''.
* ShoutOut:
** Even in his ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' days, he references a ton of pop culture in real life skits like ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', ''[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam G Gundam]]'', ''Manga/HikaruNoGo'', ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', heck even ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' is not safe, pretty much ANY pop culture out there! Probably the only reason he could get away with it was because of [[Manga/{{Gintama}} Gintoki's influence.]]
** He references ''VisualShuffle/{{Shuffle}}'' because of Nerine and her cooked eggs. During [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Blue Radio]]. [[http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/1279177196 My god, does this guy not know of any bounds!?]]
** Heck, as stated above, he is capable of "impersonating" Creator/NorioWakamoto's voice, in a level one would say '''Godlike'''. Let that sink for a moment. Jokes have been abound that if he's to enter that Norio Wakamoto imitation contest, he'll win with gusto.
* SpiritualSuccessor: Having somehow managed to get himself casted as nearly everything and also capable of creating one piece of work that gets published into a series, he could be considered the "successor" of Creator/TakehitoKoyasu.
** ManOfAThousandVoices: Another trait he shares with Koyasu. When you can play both the young and the old versions of [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Joseph Joestar]], you are definitely this.
