Tropedia

  • 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.

Vic Mignogna ("min-NYA-na", short "a"'s) is a voice actor who has managed to make himself quite a niche in the Anime community. Vic started out as everyone's favorite Badass reasonable height-wise person Ed Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist, the 2003 anime adaptation of the manga by the same name, and quickly garnered a loyal fanbase. He's one of those guys that you just can't pigeonhole due to the diversity of his roles (though he tends to play blonds). Also happens to be quite the professional singer and songwriter, with several anime songs under his belt as well as a few albums.

Aside from inventing the Lucky Dance song for the English dub of Bleach (where he plays Ikkaku Madarame), he and FMA co-star Aaron Dismuke formed their own "fanbase incarnate" in the form of the Risembool Rangers, which occasionally follow them from con to con. Travis Willingham's Miniskirt Army is known to be their rival. He was seen enjoying Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Abridged Series creator Little Kuriboh doing a spoof of Vic (along with Dan Green and Johnny Yong Bosch), and also narrated the commercial for Sakura Con (GIRUGAMESH!). Has now moved permanently to California to pursue more varied roles and other opportunities outside FUNimation.

The spectre of sexual harassment charges loomed over Mignogna for decades, which came to a head in 2019. Following the release of Dragon Ball Super: Broly, numerous allegations were brought against Mignogna by colleagues, fans, convention staff and guests. Since then, Mignogna's roles have been recast while he himself proceeded not to receive any new roles, resulting in his attempt to launch a defamation lawsuit that went nowhere. Though he is survived by the right-wing leaning "#IStandWithVic" movement whose supporters either deny that he sexually sexual harassed anyone or believe that he was targeted and kicked out of Hollywood for his conservative/Christian beliefs.
