This topic comes up every once in a while, and I love to see people opinions. While reading books, comics, etc, what is the voice you picture certain characters having? whether it's a certain accent, or actor, post your thoughts!

Always fun when this comes along. There are so many head-canons for me it's not even funny.Tahu's and Pohatu's voices from MoL are fine.One would definitely be Clockwerk's voice from the first Sly Cooper game as Teridax. Just sounds perfect when gelled with Teridax's many fantastic lines from Time Trap.I imagine Toa Nuju's voice to be most similar to Booker's from Bioshock Infinite.Antroz's voice is like Master Chief's.There are others, but these are the ones I could recall of the top of my head.

I can imagine Chris Evans being Tahu for some reason, if he can manage to make it less calm. But not over-done macho testosterone dosing Tahu from MoL. Kopaka could be RDJ. Gali would be Anne Hathaway

A while back I went on a spree of researching characters that Bionicle actors had played in other franchises, so now there are certain ideas that I can't get out of my head because those two characters together are just so epic- Teridax has a Russian accent (Ravage), Matau always yells things (in a mean way, not the Woohoo he usually has in canon- I got this idea from a certain meme perpetrated by one of his actor brethern), I always think of Nokama as sounding somewhat... Derpy....Original ideas that just popped up in my head on how they sound? I often go back and reread the ending of Dwellers in Darkness out loud to myself because I really like how Helryx sounds in those quotes with a British accent, to complement Teridax. Vezon I actually don't think of as sounding deranged- to me it seems like it should be something along the lines of G1 Starscream.

Since I feel the MoL/LoMN voice was too perfect for Teridax, I always pictured Clockwerk's voice coming out of Miserex.

 

And I had a voice linked up to almost literally every character.

I always imagined Krika as sounding quite calm and a bit grating. His laugh was like a shrieking screaming finger-nails on a chalkboard sound that doesn't sound like the traditional evil laugh. I tried thinking of it your way, though, and that sounded pretty right for him also, but it didn't seem to fit with his weird boney appearance. I think (at least in my mind) that that would sound the best pre-Karda Nui.

I had this figured out for the Toa Metru:

 

Vakama: movie voice

Nokama: movie voice

Matau: Team Four Star Goku

Nuju: Team Four Star Tenshinhan

Whenua: Tweaked movie voice (so he doesn't sound deficient)

Onewa: movie voice

 

Essentially, if I didn't like their movie voice, they get a new one. So that's only Lewa on the Nuva team. He doesn't get a voice when I read. Same with the Mahri.

I did not think Mata Nui had that movie voice.

Artakha and Ignika might sound the same, but Ignika sounds like a twenty-something guy with an uncertainty to him. Sounds like Legolas, maybe?

Krika had a slightly hissing ang grating sound, but sounded quite like Antroz to me.

Vakama certainly sounded less Italian to me.

I'll think of some more soon..

I always thought the 2001 version of Makuta sounded like Sutekh, from Doctor Who.

I still stand by my statement that is what he should have been like.

 

Everything else from the movie's pretty appropriate though.

 

Except Jaller, though Jaller was overall pretty lame in that movie.

As far as accents go, I'd say that Le-Matoran already have their own accent/dialect. But I mean, c'mon, it's Scott Mcneil as Tahu in MoL, how can one not like Scott Mcneil? Maybe I'd have it be a little less gruff or something like that for his Mata form.

I still stand by my statement that is what he should have been like.

 

I watched that episode for the first time recently, and I will readily admit that Sutekh was giving some serious Makuta vibes. I still support the Lee Tockar voice, though. Can't beat it in my book.

 

While we're on the subject of Doctor Who, I've always heard Vezon's ramblings in a voice comparable to the Eleventh Doctor's, but just a little higher-pitched. And Tren Krom is clearly House, from The Doctor's Wife (although, to be frank, that also sounds exactly like my Makuta voice).

 

The rest of the characters' voices have just been variations of my own thought-voice, so it's hard to nail them down specifically.

Any individual voice I had for any character was effectivly killed while listening to Greg Farshtey's narrations. :P

Seriously though, have often imagined some of the Onu-Matoran with a heavy black accent (no rascist intentions.) Also, I think that most of the actors in the movies did quite well, except for Toa Vakama.

I always imagined Jaller's voice as deeper and more serious-sounding than it was in MoL. I imagine Axonn sounding like Batman from the DCAU. I also imagine Nuparu sounding like Jaller did in MoL. :-P

 

EDIT:

 

 

I also would imagine Makuta Teridax as having either his movie voice, Trigon's voice from the Teen Titans TV series, some other deep-toned villainous voices by Kevin Micheal Richardson, Hugo Weaving's voice, Frank Welker's voice, or David Kyae's voice. :)          

 

Frank Welker? Now I'm hearing "Scooby Makuta Doo!" in my head. :P

Frank Welker was the voice of cartoon Megatron.Makuta's movie voice was perfect, and Kopaka's movie voice was quite apt too.I thought Brutaka would sound like Prince Arthas from WoW. Before Much King transformation.TSO.. hmm... maybe a little less heavy than Makuta's voice.
