->''Toshiyuki Morikawa. [[VideoGame/SoulSeries Do not forget this name!]]''

Toshiyuki Morikawa (森川智之)[[note]]sometimes misread Tomoyuki[[/note]] (born January 26, 1967) is one of the seiyuus who has been around since the old days, and currently still lends his voice to the job. He has quite a huge fanbase too (due in part to being one of the more attractive seiyuu around). He is also the current voice of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]] and attended the same voice acting class with Creator/KotonoMitsuishi. His voice range is versatile, ranging from [[TheStoic calm and cool characters]] to HotBlooded young men to psychopathically cold villains. From badass to {{bishonen}}, he does them all just fine. Regardless of morality, if the character has WhiteHairBlackHeart, there's a good chance he's voicing them.

[[HeterosexualLifePartners Best buds]] with Creator/NobuyukiHiyama, went as far as spreading a "Hiyama abandoned me!" mass phone call to other collegues while drunk once[[note]]when all Hiyama did was send this guy a ''20-minute'' taxi ride home by himself[[/note]], he is also good friends with fellow seiyuu Creator/FumihikoTachiki and has a lot of co-workings with Creator/NobutoshiCanna and Creator/NozomuSasaki.

Along with [[Creator/NobuyukiHiyama Hiyama]], the two of of them were involved with the birth of Creator/ShowHayami's ''Franchise/SuperStylishDoctorsStory.''

Notable alongside seiyuu like [[Creator/YujiUeda Yuuji Ueda]] and Creator/WataruTakagi in that he did a lot of roles in most of Creator/{{Capcom}}'s old video games.

----
!![[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable Killer Queen has already touched these tropes]]:
* BadassBaritone: You should mostly expect said character to have a deep voice.
* [[GameOfNerds Baseball]] [[SeriousBusiness Is Serious Business]]: Morikawa was infamously known to ''skip work'' [[note]]literally, actual recording sessions for anime projects[[/note]] whenever his favorite baseball team is playing the finals, and that alone would send his agency totally on flames with him.
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: Morikawa's the [[TheDitz boke]], while Creator/NobuyukiHiyama is the [[OnlySaneMan tsukkomi]].
* CoolTeacher: Guess what? Morikawa was actually one of the voice instructors of Creator/TomokazuSeki, Creator/KatsuyukiKonishi, and Creator/DaisukeHirakawa before they debuted.
** Now, he's opened up his own voice acting school [[note]]AXL ZERO[[/note]] AND agency [[note]]AXL ONE[[/note]].
** Morikawa has always had a passion for education. Before taking the road of voice acting, he originally wanted to become a [[LovableJock PE teacher]]. But since he was unable to take that route due to a CareerEndingInjury, he made sure to fulfill this part of his dream by training the next generation of voice actors.
* FanNickname: Mori-Mori, also 'The Emperor' amongsts YaoiFangirls due to his prolific number of appearances in BL Drama [=CDs=].
* {{Kiai}}: To prove that he's still got it even at his old age, he ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OcwkRpuHuA screams so hotblooded that everyone thought]]'' [[MemeticMutation he's gonna break a mic again.]]
* LovableJock: Coming from a sportsman background ([[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball American Football]] and tennis to be exact), he's a [[TheDitz simple-minded]] sweet guy from [[CloudCuckoolander cuckooland]]. A far cry from the characters he usually portrays.
* ManOfAThousandVoices: Takes on an average of 3 characters per anime project.
* TheSouthpaw
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: He does this a lot in ''VideoGame/{{Nioh}}'', though heavily accented, it's surprising that he CAN pull it off.
