Creator: Nobuyuki Hiyama
He will show you the power of TRUE courage.

DESCRIBE! NOBUYUKI HIYAMA! HEEEEEEEEEERE! HYAAAAHT!

Sure, sure, but please, not so loud... *pulls out earplugs*

Anyway, Nobuyuki Hiyama is a seiyuu, well-known for his dramatic yelling, thus making him the go-to seiyuu for Hot-Blooded characters. He's quite prolific according to ANN, and fans nickname him King of Braves/Yuusha-Oh, not just for his GaoGaiGar role as Guy Shishioh, but the fact that he's done ANOTHER Brave Series protagonist, Maito Senpuuji from The Brave Express Might Gaine, the Brave project before GaoGaiGar that played the key role of planting down the seeds of the now Constitution of Bravery. In addition to this, he has also voiced Adult Link (his grunts and yells anyways) from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, who wielded the Triforce of COURAGE! However, he is also capable of doing cold, calculating characters, psycho characters, and cool-headed characters. But yeah, his main forte is Hotbloodedness. God bless the souls of those few English VAs daring enough to dub his voice.

As odd as he may seem, this guy usually plays steamy hot bishonens thanks to his uniquely sexy voice. note 

Best buds with Toshiyuki Morikawa, and close friends with Hikaru Midorikawa, and Megumi Hayashibara, as hinted in her biography manga, Megumi-Toon. note 

For more interesting stuff about him and his characters, see his Trivia Page.

He may or may be related to the creation of Naruto's Might Guy, due to the origin of his Yuusha-Oh nickname.


Tropes associated with Hiyama:

  • Big Fun: While he's never been "fat" by any real stretch, his physique has always been a little pudgy (mainly due to his petite height), and many seiyuu have said he's a lot of fun to be around.
  • Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: Morikawa's the boke, while Hiyama is the tsukkomi.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: From the view of the male fanbase, most of his characters represent the image of the ideal masculine man, in which most men would look up to. Therefore, fanboys can't help but to squee louder than the fangirls whenever his presence is known.
  • Fan Nickname: Hi-chan, The King of Braves, and "The King of _(insert character's description here)_" for his character's nicknames.
  • Hot-Blooded: Yes, he is THE living example. Any recording studio his works in will be raised 3℃ higher in temperature instantly once he raises his voice.
  • Large Ham
  • Shrinking Violet: Surprisingly, he was this in the DVD commentary of Grenadier where his character appeared. He had never done a commentary before and was really nervous.
  • The Smart Guy / Shorter Means Smarter: At 166 cm note  high, he's surprisingly petite for a guy. Yet he flourishes in the liberal arts back in his school days, and is proven very knowledgeable in a broad range of subjects, from baseball, to biology, on to his most favorite subject, history.
    • He mentioned that he usually finds himself at the top ranks nationally whenever he plays Quiz Magic Academy.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Ramen, Ramen, RAAAAAAAAAAMEEEEEEEEENNNNNN!!!!!!
