A bad papa.
Well, not literally, but if there's one thing Fumihiko Tachiki is known for, it's him being the seiyuu of many many fatherly guys who gives out the vibe that father figures are scary, evil, etc. However, while doing that, he also gives out an extremely manly, coarse and badass
voice, making him quite the fan favorite. Sometimes, he just does the second part (not being a father, but still a badass), or he can subvert it at one point when he's picked as the eternal Plucky Comic Relief
character Boss in Mazinkaiser
, and a young character at that! He's also known for providing narration and announcements for a number of properties, such as Gintama
, Kamen Rider Double
, Sonic Colors
, and Persona 4: Arena
He first made himself known through the smash hit Neon Genesis Evangelion
as Gendo Ikari, but it wasn't quite until either Tales of Symphonia
that his popularity started to skyrocket.
