Quotes:

"Other than Vegeta, who is my favorite character despite the fact that I voice him, I have to admit I really like Trunks. He is just so...cool. Think about it-Trunks-the lone survivor of the apocalypse, son of the most angry and the most headstrong characters. Frieza- BAM! King Cold-BAM!! Cell-BAM!! Androids-BAM!! He comes on strong and leaves even stronger. You've gotta love him. Eric Johnson, the voice of Trunks, is an astounding actor."

Happy birthday, Christopher Sabat! He is pretty much my favorite VA at Funimation. Anyone who can play dark and bitter characters like Vegeta and then turn right around and voice goofier, lovable characters like Sakaki, Kuwabara and Yamcha while still having plenty of range to spare definitely has my respect.

He used to be in everything, but while he still gets work, he's kinda scaled back some. I'd love to hear him voice another main character (he actually would've made a decent Space Dandy).

My favorite non-DBZ role of his will always be Giroro in Sgt. Frog. Seriously, Sabat's voice is PERFECT for a drill sergeant character like that!

His range really was explored in DBZ. For years, I had no idea so many characters were voiced by the same person...

As many people here already posted, his voice for Vegeta and Piccolo amazing!

Kazuma Kuwabara and Yonro are hilarious.

Roronoa Zoro is great!

Shio Sakaki is my favorite non-Dragon Ball role of his. Perfect casting!

You sound like you have some personal problem with Mr. Sabat. Because you don't have very good facts.

1. Todd Haberkorn was the director for D. Grayman. Todd has said that FUNimation said he shouldn't do accents.

2. This makes no sense. It seems like he uses FUNimation's best actors. He probably is friends with them, but he probably knows more voice actors than anyone else, so all the actors are his friends. H

3. He's said at conventions that the only people he recasts are people who are not available or don't want to do the role any more. And really the only recasting it seems like he did was on Dragonaball Z Kai, and some of those original actors aren't even acting any more.

4. In interviews and at conventions, Chris is a funny, modest person who never really brags about anything, unless he's joking. The only time it looks like he hypes something is when FUNimation is hyping it, which means he has to do it.

Your entire comment sounds suspicious to me, especially because you are "anonymous". Are you a bad actor or something that Chris doesn't like or something? Probly.

Anyway, the one thing you were right about was how good he was on Vegeta, Zoro and Armstrong.

Chris is easily one of best voice actors in the world..he uses his friends clearly because they are among the best in there field(that should be common sense right there)any criticism that you have about him is pointless..the man is indeed among the living Greats..he may only be second to Kent Williams.

anonymous;
I don't know about this... since he tends to play/portray/voice strong, tough, or grouchy characters. And why the pros and cons? Are you a critic? Why no accents? Haven't you watched D.Gray-Man yourself? Why still cast the same? He does the recasting? And why the positive and negative? My, you're kind of skilled..
anonymous (Guest)
said at 2:03 PM on Mon Jan 3 2011
While I think he's a great voice actor I'm not a fan of his voice directing decisions.

1. No accents in D.Gray-man

2. He casts the same voice actors in all dubs he works on (basically just uses his friends)

3. If a voice actor isn't nearby, he'll recast them even if the voice actor is flawless in the role. (Pretty lazy IMO)

4. He tries to over-hype anything he works on (I think people can decide for themselves)

Now some positive words.

- Fantastic as Vegeta
- Fantastic as Roronoa Zoro
- Fantastic as Alex Louis Armstrong

Sabat played Nappa for the original release of Bardock-The Father of Goku and some flashbacks in the show. But Phil Parsons redubbed Nappa's lines in Bardock for the remastered DVD release.
pointyfern (Guest)
said at 1:20 AM on Sat Dec 26 2009
The clip of Nappa seems totally off, I have never heard him sound like that - I suppose it could be the original dub or something, I just remember it as a child and the new FUNimation DVDs I have now.

I'd probably laugh if I were to watch the show and Nappa sounded exactly like Piccolo.

It surprised me that he was also Zarbon, although once you know that it becomes obvious.

He was at his very best as leads Saiga in Speedgrapher and as Roy Revant in Solty Rei. He acted as voice director for Solty Rei as well iirc.
