Who is the best Gambit?

#1 Edited by FearTheLiving (3091 posts) - - Show Bio

Who was your favorite Gambit? When I say that I'm strictly speaking about in animation (voice acting) or live action.
 
Personally I don't think I've seen anyone really nail his accent but that's just me. If I were to pick one however it would be the 90s X-Men Gambit.
 
I'd love for Michael Raymond-James to portray Gambit in an animated x-men show because after hearing  Phil LaMarr voice Gambit on Wolverine and the X-Men I almost died a little by how bad it was.

TAS of the 90's is what made him prominent, but I liked the X-Men evolution version as well.

The Capcom games voice was amazing.

Evolution's was alright. The 90's one is the standard one, though.

Gonna have to check that one out not really into fighting games though so I never picked it up.

I actually really liked the Wolverine and the X-Men Gambit. He was charming, sly, and mysterious, and I fell in completely head over heels for him when in the episode "Aces and Eights" when he charged the water in the fountain. I honestly had no idea he could do that.

Don't get me wrong I liked him in the show, just felt is voice didn't match the voice in my head. (I guess that's my problem though =/)

@FearTheLiving: Really? I thought his X-Men Evolution voice was horrid. His 90's voice and the WATXM voice were my favs.

@MiraTheGoddess: Well I don't really recall his Evolution voice so really can't say anything about that, but the WATXM voice just sounded too (maybe a bit racist) black, like I heard his VA's voice rather then Gambits. Also his accent needed work which to me is a must for voicing Gambit. As of yet however 90s Gambit is still my favorite.

The 1990s Gambit is one of the better ones

Yeah the 90's Gambit is what I'm most used to hearing and when I first heard Gambits voice from Wolverine and the Xmen I didn't like it cuz it was so much different from what I was used to. But after I got used to hearing it, I actually really like that version of Gambits voice. It's cajun and like a previous poster said its dark and mysterious.

Not to necro a thread needlessly but I just got finished rewatching the 92 x-men animated series; noticed that Chris Potter wasn't doing Gambit in the episode "Jubilee's Fairytale Theater". It basically ruined the episode imo. His was and is so far my favorite gambit interpretation.

Voice actor Chris Potter set the stander on how Gambits's voice and accent should sound. Unfortunately no one but him has been able to capture his voice correctly.

The original Gambit was amazing.

I liked him in the 90's and Wolverine and the X-men, I like those prtrayals, but my favorite is probably the one from X-men Legends, and its sequel.

90's Remy. Anything else is a joke.
