because it's voiced by DAN GREEN....
OK, maybe it does. Dan Green is a voice actor from New York who has worked for a number of ADR studios, most notably 4Kids
. 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 3 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, Dan became a real-life woobie
. His wife, voice actress Michal Friedman, died from complications in giving birth to their twin boys, 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.
Has a vocal doppelgänger in the form of England's Martin Billany, a.k.a. Little Kuriboh of Yu Gi Oh The Abridged Series
Either Dan or someone with his name (it's a common name) inks/has inked comic books
