Evil Has a Deep Voice 056

If you want a traditional example

An easy way to tell if someone is evil is if their voice is much deeper than a normal character's, often artificially so. If someone becomes evil their voice will either drop a few octaves, get put through a voice modulator, or be combined with another voice speaking in a much deeper tone. If an Anti-Hero decides to become worse then he will start talking in a deeper, more serious tone of voice. Male characters almost always get an unapproachable, commanding cadence. Villainesses usually get a sultry, suggestive one, unless they're supposed to be in command or actually scary, in which case their cadence will be dismissive and forbidding.

A deep voice makes the character sound strong and competent, so it is a common trait for major villains that the audience is supposed to fear and respect. Consequently, such villains will usually speak in baritone register, more rarely in bass register.

However they not always sound like that, Some Have deep oprea-like voice, like this

Other Villians have a deep voice that can be silly and scary sounding like this (WARNING: THIS MIGHT SCARE YOUNGER ADUENCES)

Some Don't even have a Deep voice, in fact some Villians have a high very high, scratchy whiny voices, like this

Its worth noting that the most noble of leaders or heroes have a very deep voices like this

. James Earl Jones

. Christopher Lee

. Tony Todd

. Clancy Brown

. Tim Curry

. Tony Jay

. Michael Wincott

. Dan Green

. Keith David

. Kevin Michael Richardson

. David Kaye

. David Sobolov

. Corey Burton

. Steve Blum

. Boris Karloff

. Shozo Iizuka

. Ryuzaburo Ohtomo

. Norio Wakamoto

. Show Hayami

. Joji Nakata

. Ryusei Nakao

. Banjo Ginga

. Seizo Kato

. Jurota Kosugi

AMAZING this has been by far my favorite article-LOVE the segment to the audio.

I cannot pick a favorite but i like the Transformer one-plus Favorite bad guy voice Boris Karloff-but James Earl Jones a real close second.

This was such a treat to read DAD wants to read it Next.
