• 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.

Most known for playing Shinji Ikari in Neon Genesis Evangelion.

He's probably the poster guy for Pigeonholed Voice Actor. He's never been able to live it down, and up until 2009 had been voicing pretty much Shinji in a different form. We're looking at you, Hanataro (less emo, more timid) & Rolo (more emo, less timid, and even more homoerotic not to mention psychotic)!

However, that all changed when he was cast as Arakune, a psycho. This came as a shocking surprise to fans, and has finally broken him out of the pigeonhole. BEES! (My God...)

Noted for being an extremely funny guy who is very welcoming to his fans. He once referred to Sam Riegel as "the gay man with the fan". He's also a black belt (which makes him wonder why he's cast as the helpless kid). He also hates Hideaki Anno for running out of ink to finish NGE, that bastard!

And remember, it's not a true Spike Spencer role without a good old-fashioned Freak-Out. Incidentally, this scene (starting at 2:03) (major, MEGA-HUGE Evangelion spoilers) is the only one he's specifically described as having made him uncomfortable to work on. He was formerly married to Kendra Benham, the first voice actor of Maya Ibuki. He's currently single.

Not to be confused with Spike Spiegel, a character from a show he wasn't in.

Texan counterparts? Greg Ayres and Josh Grelle.
