->"Because Vic Mignogna ''loves'' the ladies, and the ladies ''love'' Vic Mignogna."
-->-- ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' "[[TheWarOfTheAbridgedSeriesCreators Second Anniversary Spectacularamathon]]"

[[http://www.vicsworld.net/ Vic Mignogna]] (''"min-YAH-na"'') is a voice actor who has managed to make himself quite a niche in the {{Anime}} community. Vic started out as everyone's favorite {{Badass}} [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial reasonable height-wise person]] Ed Elric in ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'', the 2003 anime adaptation of [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist the manga by the same name]], and quickly garnered a loyal fanbase. He's one of those guys that you just can't pigeonhole due to the diversity of his roles (though he tends to play blonds). Also happens to be quite the professional singer and songwriter, with several anime songs under his belt as well as a few albums.

Aside from inventing the Lucky Dance song for the English dub of ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' (where he plays Ikkaku Madarame), he and ''FMA'' co-star Creator/AaronDismuke formed their own "fanbase incarnate" in the form of the Risembool Rangers, which occasionally follow them from con to con. TravisWillingham's Miniskirt Army is known to be their rival. He was seen enjoying ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' creator LittleKuriboh doing a spoof of Vic (along with DanGreen and JohnnyYongBosch), and also narrated the commercial for Sakura Con ([[MemeticMutation GIRUGAMESH!]]). Has now moved permanently to California to pursue more varied roles and other opportunities outside FUNimation.

!!Tropes about his roles and Vic himself:
* BigBrotherMentor: To Creator/AaronDismuke, which is a case of LifeImitatesArt and IntergenerationalFriendship.
* BerserkButton: What Ed, Ikkaku, Tamaki, Mao, and Broly have in common. In fact, a lot of fans love him because his screaming is so epically funny, which helps because his most famous roles all have Berserk Buttons as a running joke.
* {{Bishonen}}: Most of his roles.
* ChristianRock: Some of his recorded songs could qualify as this if they actually got airplay on Christian Rock stations. Examples include "Could Be an Angel" and "Nothing I Wouldn't Give"
* CosplayOtakuGirl: Or rahter, Mr. Anime-Cosplayer Guy. How ironic is it that one of the Real Fans Of Genius videos is about this, and Vic has cosplayed as several characters himself (recently donning [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F93Cl-usj58 the Cross Academy uniform]] to reveal his role as Zero)!
* DangerousForbiddenTechnique: His Broly voice is impressive, but hurts so much he rarely does it anymore. He was ''extremely'' dismayed once, after having thought he was done with the roles after the movies, had to do Broly's voice for the video games. He's even said that when his agent calls him up to tell him he's going to voice Broly again, the first thing he hears is [[ThisIsGonnaSuck "Vic, I'm sorry."]]
** [[WebVideo/DragonBallAbridged AH, MY POOR VOCAL CORDS!]]
* MrFanservice: Besides voicing them, he himself is an example. He has a gigantic fan following of girls that pretty much watch whatever he's in.
* LargeHam: He has played several, but [[Anime/DragonBallZ Bro]][[ScreamingWarrior ly]] is the most notable.
* ManOfAThousandVoices: He has a wide vocal range.
** This can be best seen in his live-action appearances in FalloutNukaBreak, where he plays the Narrator (in his best RonPerlman impression) and two different merchants.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: One of his songs, "The Legend of Middle Tennessee", is a mock-heroic account of how he won a dodgeball game against TravisWillingham.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Can you ''believe'' he's 50?
--> '''Fan:''' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6aenGSRUys You're older than my dad!]]\\
'''Vic:''' [[FelonyMisdemeanor SHUT UP!]]
* OneOfUs: Has multiple Star Trek videos on his Youtube channel. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjnHu4d8bt0 He even made his own version]] of the famous [[StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan KHAAA]][[LargeHam AAAAA]][[SayMyName AAAAN]] scene, even!
* RedShirt: His song "Soldier A" is a tribute to them.
* VocalDissonance: His natural speaking voice is surprisingly high-pitched for his appearance and age.
