because it's voiced by DAN GREEN....
OK, maybe it does. Dan Greennote
is a voice actor from New York who has worked for a number of ADR studios, most notably 4Kids Entertainment
. His best-known roles are both "forms" of the title character in Yu-Gi-Oh!
, and Knuckles in the Sonic X
anime as well as in the games proper from 2005-2009. Somewhat more infamously, his voice can also be found in several Video Brinquedo
dubs and at least a few Hentai (though naturally he leaves the porn off his résumé).
Green is known for his three vocal ranges: normal, little kid, and Large and in Charge
. The last one is especially notorious due to his Cheesy Awesome
voice acting for Yami Yugi in Yu-Gi-Oh!
propelling him to Internet stardom
, putting him on par with Crispin Freeman
, Scott McNeil
, and Christopher Sabat
as the Ensemble Big Guys
of Voice Acting.
In late 2011, tragedy struck when voice actress Michal Friedman, Green's wife, died from complications in giving birth
to their twins (a boy and a girl), leaving him a widower with two new mouths to feed. This, coupled with the continuing decline of the NYC voice acting scene (4Kids shut down a few months later after years of hemorrhaging money), prompted Green to retire from voice acting for the foreseeable future. Thankfully, he seems to be doing better as he's now a voice over instructor at Edge Studios
Has a vocal doppelgänger in the form of England's Martin Billany, a.k.a. Little Kuriboh of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series
