Malik’s VA actually gets to play his Yami without any sort of digital aLTERING. I LEGITIMATELY GASPED WHEN HE POPPED UP. ‘I took control of the cameraman and zoomed in on your hand !’ FUCKIN- Darren Dunstan is amazing as Pegasus.

Theme of Maximillion Pegasus from Yu-Gi-Oh!: Face Up, Face Down.
Pegasus’s voice actor, Darren Dunstan (who is also the VA of James of Team Rocket in the Pokémon anime)*, does actually sing this song; it is not a fan creation but the real theme.
*Thanks to azumeowth for correcting me on that. James’s VA is Eric Stuart (which I remember reading), but a comment on this video on YouTube said that they were the same, so I just played along with it. Some confusion may come from Wikipedia’s article on Dunstan, which does list him as James’s VA.

Here are the lyrics:

Welcome all my honored guests
to the ultimate duel with the best of the best
At my invitation you’ve come to compete
for the honor of suffering the final defeat

Isn’t it grand what I’ve managed to do
by kidnapping those closest to you
I’ve taken their souls to lay on the line
in a winner take all duel for all time

[Bridge]
Let’s play the game
I’m sure you all know how,
but watch yourselves, my foolish friends
you’re all in my world now

[Chorus]
Face up, face down
attack or defend
face up, face down
this battle’s to the end
face up, face down
stay on guard
face up, face down
play your strongest card

Final arena awaits us all
I built it myself, it’s just down the hall
I wish this day hadn’t come so fast
you see, i truly wanted your pain to last

[Chorus]
Face up, face down
attack or defend
face up, face down
this battle’s to the end
face up, face down
stay on guard
face up, face down
play your strongest card

all your cunning strategies
all the tricks you’ve tried
look like merely child’s play
to my Millenium Eye
ha ha ha ha, your turn, Yugi-boy

what’s wrong now, you look so sad
losing your soul doesn’t feel that bad
those you love have told me so
and soon my friends, you too will know

[Bridge]
Let’s play the game
i’m sure you all know how,
but watch yourselves, my foolish friends
you’re all in my world now

[Chorus]
Face up, face down
attack or defend
face up, face down
this battle’s to the end
face up, face down
stay on guard
face up, face down
play your strongest card
(repeat chorus to fade)

“You don’t know who I am? You must have been living in a cave.” 

oh those toons are simply fabulous. Ooo oh no. someone got totally burned by a mega ultra chicken!

Darren Dunstan, the English voice actor for Pegasus, is an AMAZING singer. I didn’t upload this video to YouTube, but I thought it might have an audience here. The song isn’t meant to be in-character, of course, although his voice sounds similar.

Enjoy!

These are all from the dubbed version of Bonds Beyond Time. Yes, even the cake line. Say what you will about the 4Kids Yu-Gi-Oh! dub, but they made this dub and it’s here to stay.

Also, the first part of the dubbed movie is literally a 10-minute-long recap of DM, GX, and 5D’s.

Friendly reminder to Pegasus fans that Josh Groban sings naturally in Pegasus-esque voice and inflection. Seriously, listen to the man. He will change your life. (I mean listen to Darren too because he’s a legend but his works are more limited than Josh’s sooo anyway, links!)

Alright! I’m home from Rhode Island where the Y.C.S. took place!

What an awesome time it was. I met so many new people and made so many new friends. I got to talk with the ever so awesome Darren Dunstan aka the voice of Maximillion Pegasus, and got him to sign a mat and a mini card binder that was won. Not only that I got a picture with him! He was simply amazing and it was surly the highlight of the trip <3 !

‘Flight’ - Darren Dunstan

God Pegasus has an amazing singing voice

I really enjoy Darren dustan’s singing,he has a nice voice. (He’s Pegasus’ voice actor but I’m sure you guessed this~ He also plays Splinter in TMNT and Mr.Kay and Mr.Heartland in Zexal. And possibly IV….stillthinkhewasjustafillinthoughfordatflashback)

These four lines were a defining moment of my childhood, thanks to Darren Dunstan’s voice acting and the tone of the entire scene. This isn’t funny Pegasus or silly-then-serious Pegasus. He’s cold and ruthless all the way through, intercepts Kaiba seconds before Mokuba would have been freed, and mockingly congratulates him on having gotten this far–right after scene after scene of the Kaiba brothers vowing to see each other again.

Then, after previous episodes showed Seto Kaiba was determined to not get involved in the tournament, Pegasus tosses him some Star Chips and a gauntlet, forcing him to play by his rules if he wants his brother back. Even his henchman Kemo forces Kaiba to run for Mokuba’s cell after triggering an alarm. We knew Pegasus was a serious threat before, but this whole sequence illustrated how serious.
