Troy Baker is a voice actor from Texas whose forte seems to be playing assholes, be they heroic or villainous. On the other hand, though, he's also good at playing comedic characters, even though some of them just might end up being the former.Recently he has been doing voiceover work in California and with this change his forte has switched to playing Magnificent Bastards. If he voices a character like this, expect a character voiced by Johnny Yong Bosch to oppose him. Also seems to like playing a Fake Brit, generally either the Evil Brit or The Mean Brit.note Kazkis Proxy and Schneizel have that Evil Brit thing going for them; November 11 and Excalibur are actually supposed to be British and have aspects of The Mean Brit.Troy married his wife Pam on October 13, 2012. Apparently, this is one of the main reasons why Matthew Mercertook over his role as Kanji in the second half of the Persona 4 anime.Has a Twitteraccount.
The Ace: Simply put, he's one of the most talented voice actors out there, a great singer, handsome to boot and able to make any role he plays extremely good. There's also the fact that he's considered the best voice actor and up there with Steve Blum, and Crispin Freeman in terms of sheer popularity.
Badass Baritone: Normally uses a deep voice in many of the characters he voices. This is especially true if the character is an Anti-Hero or a villain.
Evil Sounds Deep: Whenever he plays a villain, expect them to have a deep voice.
One of Us: A few days after this page was posted on Troy's official Facebook fanpage, he mentioned at a convention the similarities between Ganryu and Kariya, and his PTSD whenever he sees Johnny Yong Bosch. Coincidence?
Serkis Folk: He does a good bit of mocap work along with the voice acting in many video games such as The Last of Us and inFAMOUS: Second Son . In fact, he's one of the many voice actors to promote this in the American video game industry thanks to the advancing technology in many video game consoles.
Star-Making Role: He had two in 2008: Yuri Lowell in Tales of Vesperia and Kanji Tatsumi in Persona 4. However, arguably the former could be consider the most important one, since Tales of Vesperia came out several months earlier and most of the characters he's made ever since are more similar to Yuri than to Kanji. Still, with Kanji he proved his incredible versatility.
Snow from FFXIII is arguably the third big one for him. After that, he started landing more and more game roles.
