Creator / Matthew Mercer
Matthew Christopher Miller AKA via his stage name "Matthew Mercer" (born June 29, 1982) is an American voice actor born in Florida. He started off providing background voices in anime dubbing in the early 2000's. He eventually found more prominence in Japanese video game dubs and some western animation voice roles, though around 2012/2013, he eventually started gaining more prominent roles in anime voice over work. In 2010, he directed and starred in the live-action web original series There Will Be Brawl, which also featured friends and other voice actors such as Kyle Hebert.

Texan counterparts? David Matranga, Robert McCollum and Jason Douglas (which coincidentally enough, all of them worked on Attack on Titan). Canadian counterparts? Brian and Michael Dobson, Kirby Morrow, and Michael Daingerfield Hall.

Alongside There Will Be Brawl, Matthew is known for voicing Chrom in Fire Emblem Awakening, Levi in Attack on Titan and Kanji from Persona 4 after Troy Baker was unable to come back (more specifically, Matthew was brought in during recording for the anime adaptation, as Troy got married and went on honeymoon).

However, his most well-known current role is working as the DM for Geek and Sundry's Critical Role, where he and other voice actors get together to play Dungeons & Dragons. This has become so successful, he also was called on to DM the Nerdist campaign Force Grey: Giant Hunters. Oh, and he was also DM for a game featuring Pewdiepie and Cinnamon Toast Ken. Plus, he got to DM a one-shot for Vin Diesel in a Critical Role spin-off to promote The Last Witch Hunter. And then on August 6th 2016, Matt got to announce that his custom campaign setting was being made into a campaign module in D&D 5th Edition. In case you hadn't figured it out, he really likes D&D (If you're wondering, his personal favourite character is a Dwarf Bard).

Has a Twitter account, and a Facebook account which is here.

Tropes associated with Matthew Mercer at High Noon...:

  • Alliterative Name: His first and last name both start with the letter M.
  • Awesome McCool Name: His name wouldn't be out of place in a comic book.
  • Badass: Most of his roles.
  • Badass Baritone: A lot of his roles have really deep voices.
  • The Cameo: He has one in the Man at Arms episode where the Sword of Omens is forged, and gets to try it out. He also has a cameo as a bard in Rat Queens.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Some of his roles fall under this such as Lao and Alvin.
  • Deadpan Snarker: A lot of his characters can be sarcastic.
  • The Gadfly: He likes to mess with his friends by saying "It's High Noon..." out of blue when playing Overwatch with friends.
  • Large Ham: He doesn't actually get to be melodramatic very often, but when he does...
  • Jerkass: He himself has admitted he voices a lot of smarmy douchebags, though they fall more along the Jerk with a Heart of Gold side of things.
  • Man of a Thousand Voices: Boasts an impressive range. In cases of substitution, he's capable of sounding exactly like Troy Baker and even Roger Craig Smith (which makes it extra funny when they get together as three of the four main protagonists of Resident Evil 6).
    • Shown off to no end in Critical Role, where he's free to play against type with characters like Camp Gay Gilmore and Creepy Awesome Clarota. He even manages to play female characters convincingly, and makes them all sound different from each other note . The players - who are all professional voice actors - all praise his range during the episode 10 Q&A.
    • In Heirs of Fate DLC for Fire Emblem Fates, he gets a chance to show off his singing skills (he, as Shigure, sings both the final battle theme and the credits song), and they're just as impressive as his acting.
  • Spiritual Successor: Can easily considered to be Troy Baker successor due to their similar Badass Baritone voices. He even officially took over some of Troy Baker's previous roles (Kanji Tatsumi and Valvatorez) since Troy Baker is now a union-only member and the Persona games are non-union note . To a lesser extent, this happened in a game both of them are in as Matthew replaced Troy as the Tim Drake Robin in Batman: Arkham Knight despite Troy returning to reprise his other role from Batman: Arkham City as Two-Face.
  • Troll: When playing Overwatch, he will occasionally freak out his teammates by saying McCree's Pre Ass Kicking One Liner, "It's high noon", making them think the enemies have a McCree on their team about to frag them.
