    In three words I’ll describe the episode: That was great!

    The voice-work was top-notch. And David Humphrey absolutely nailed Vlad this time. His voice became the character, and made it all the more enjoyable! Plus, I heard no ‘swallowing’ sounds. So he really has improved his character voice, great job David!

    The new characters, along with some old ones (Thai Fighter, Robo Buzz, Kumaka, etc.), were really refreshing. I can tell I’ll like each individual character in episodes to come.

    I spotted Captain Physcodrive, but where is Scarthcaroth? Perhaps… THAT is a method from the book? Revive the almighty Scarthcaroth? (Cue chorus)

    Granted, it was all a plot-driver, so there was not much humor to speak of, but was there was great. Again, great job!

    Just one question, who is the robot with a mustache? It could be Dr. Robotnik, but there is already Robo Buzz, and the fact that he dresses up as Sam. In that case, it might be Dark Samus or Meta Ridley, but that makes little sense… Ah, I’m sure I will figure it out in the future.

    In the least, it was a great episode, and I will patiently expect the future ones to come!

    Thank you for your time.
    Sincerely, the Raptor.

    Thanks Raptor!

    I don’t want to give much away, but to answer your last question, the robot fellow is Dr. Botski.

    As funny as the rest, Ed. Here’s the references for this episode:
    Dr. Botski = Robotnik/Eggman
    Robo-Buzz = Metal Sonic
    Reptilor = Bowser and King K. Rool
    Kao Shan (helmeted villian) = Shao Khan and Goro
    Kumaka = Akuma/Goki
    Thai-Fighter = Sagat
    Gas-Masked villian = Psycho Mantis
    Succubus = Morrigan Aensland
    Gorlock = Ganon
    Penguin Emperor = King Dedede
    Captain Psychodrive = M. Bison

    What’s next? One of these villians outside of Vlad, Reptilor, Thai-Fighter, Psychodrive, Vile, Botski, and Scarthcaroth voiced by another voice actor who was involved in video games at some point?
