This is an idea that just crossed my mind. For important characters who have consistently had the same voice actor over several appearances, what about sound samples of that actor? Likely candidates (based on what I know):

  1. Sephiroth
  2. Cloud
  3. Tifa
  4. Vincent
  5. Yuna
  6. Auron
  7. Tidus
  8. Jecht
  9. Cecil (Assuming he has the same actor for Dissidia as DS)
  10. Golbez (Ditto)
  11. Squall (Assuming he has the same actor as KH2)

Except would be characters who have consistently had different voice actors. Off the bat only Aerith comes to mind, and possibly Yuffie. And since this is currently a small sample, perhaps characters who have only had one speaking appearance (XII cast, Dissidia cast beyond VII and X) can have samples. But again, only characters important to the plot would have voice samples, we don't need samples for every NPC out there.

What do you think? Drake Clawfang 20:30, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

I'm all for it, Drake. My vote might not mean much, but from a user-POV, I think maybe a 30-second-at-maximum sample will do. --Tex Howdy! 21:00, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm all for voice samples, the world needs more voice samples. 'Kay maybe not the world but I would love to have them around, and if it would be a sample for both Japanese and English voice actors all the better. It may not be much but I have audio files with the voices of Marlene in AC and Rod (male) Turk as well as Revolver (female) Turk. Yeah, I know, odd choices to have hanging in my computer but I liked them. Celythia
I think you should try to get in contact with the voice actors and ask them to do an "audio" version of the article, like how it works over at Wikipedia.
But in all seriousness, I'm not for it. If each sample had the character saying their own name, that would be good, but I'm not sure if anyone up there EVER says there own name.  ILHI 21:19, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
What I was thinking is just a short snippet of dialogue from some game the VA did the character voice in. Either an extended bit of dialogue, or two or three smaller sentences. Drake Clawfang 22:00, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
That would be obvious, but think: One piece of dialogue. What would it be? First thing I though of now was the quote at the top of the page, but then a lot of them originally appear in games that don't have voice actors. However, this brings me to something else, we could edit the quote template, and {{#if}} in a sound sample. So take Sephiroth, under Birth and Early Life, with the quote would be THE quote, as said by Nerbern himself.
Sounds perfect to me.  ILHI 22:04, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
This I can certainly agree with, if possible - the VA saying one of the page quotes. Drake Clawfang 22:06, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
You get Judge Bergan saying "Too late and to their sorrow do those who misplace their trust in Gods learn their fate", and I'll give you a medal. This is a great idea. --BlueHighwind 22:07, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, I'm not going ahead with the idea right yet, but for you BH, I'll get it now. ^_^ Drake Clawfang 22:12, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
