Remains of the Judgement
I usually dont have to ask many KH question around here, but why do Xemnas and Roxas have different voices then Xehanort and Sora? I know the apprentices of Ansem the Wise have the same VA but they arent as major.

Spoiler Show:v didn't they show/confirm any of the Apprentices' seiyuus? Since ya know, that'll make it pretty obvious whether the voice changes are exclusive to Namine, Xemnas and Roxas, or are something all human shaped Nobodies have in common.
actually, it's kinda easy to explain. Nobodies look and act similar to there somebodies but are not the same. so some look/sound very similar and others do not. So you can easily have some having different voices and others having the same. That's like asking why does Xenohart have a different haircut as a nobody then a somebody while say Even has basically the same look as a Somebody then a Nobody. Some just have larger diffrences then others. that's all it's not special.
Normal human Nobodies DO look almost exactly like their original selves; the reason why some members of Org XIII look different than their Somebodies as seen in BBS is because they became Nobodies a few years AFTER that game, instead of in the span of one year as Leon suggested since Nomura seems to be retconning that line. Special Nobodies are the ones who have different voices and looks to the originals.
Even Nobody transformation has a rule to follow. There is no 'One looks exactly the same as his original but the other does not' when it comes to normal human Nobodies.
I heard somehwere that Richard Epcar who voiced Ansem SoD in the first game was supposed to voice Xemnas but couldn't and they recast him.
Although I don't know why they recast Namine for Com. I preferred her KH2 voice.
