Who Voices Rauru in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?

The opening of the overwhelmingly hyped The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom sees Link meeting Rauru, who guides him through the tutorial segment, harkening back to Breath of the Wild’s similar kingly guidance in the early game. Players are already commenting on Rauru’s excellent voice lines, and are wondering who the actor behind the ancient king is. 

If you’re not rushing to beat Tears of the Kingdom in under 94 minutes like some speedrun fanatics, you probably won’t see the credits roll for quite a while, so we’ve got you covered with the answers right here.

Who is the Voice Actor for Rauru in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom?


Rauru’s voice actor in Tears of the Kingdom is none other than Chris Hackney, who some may recognize from his work as the leader of the Blue Lions, Dimitri in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. The VA has yet to have the credit listed on his IMDB page but can be seen clearly under the game’s English voice actors during the game’s credits sequence.
