• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

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 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, and Sonic Colors.

He first makes himself known through the smash hit Neon Genesis Evangelion as Gendo Ikari, but it wasn't quite until either Tales of Symphonia or Bleach that his popularity starts to skyrocket.
