Favorite character # 1: Natsuki Subaru from Re:Zero

In Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, Chiplock voices Guido Mista. Mista is a member of the Italian mafia and a perfect shot with a gun. His special ability allows him to manipulate the trajectory of bullets. He is confident, carefree, and confrontational.
Favorite character # 3: Diluc from Genshin Impact
One of the most popular video games right now is Genshin Impact, which had the highest grossing first-year launch revenue of any video game. Chiplock voices Diluc in the franchise, a five-star fire-elemental character who wields a claymore. Diluc is the owner of a winery and an upstanding citizen in Monstadt. He seeks to protect the city in his own way and is willing to fight for what he believes in.
Favorite character # 4: Bruno Bangnyfe from Burn the Witch

Favorite character # 5: Spider-Man from Marvel’s Avengers

Sean Chiplock takes on a tough persona to bring Ken Ryuguji, better known as Draken, to life in Tokyo Revengers. Draken is a founding member of a prominent gang in Tokyo and never turns down a fight.

Favorite character # 7: Revali from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Revali from Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an expert archer with an arrogant attitude. He helps Link on his journey to defeat Calamity Ganon. Sean Chiplock was initially very nervous about how this role would be received. He anticipated that Zelda fans would be extremely harsh critics of any English voice acting added to a game known for its lack of English dialogue. To his pleasant surprise, fans adored the game and his performance.
Favorite character # 8: Noob Saibot from Mortal Kombat
Noob Saibot is voiced by Sean Chiplock in Mortal Kombat 11. This playable character has the power to control shadow and the darkness.
