Trivia & Fun Facts:

  • Full name is Paul William Dobson, sometimes credited as Paul Spencer Dobson.
  • Brother of Michael Dobson and Brian Dobson.
  • Paul is frequently cast in one of two roles: a brilliantly cunning, evil villain, or a thuggish strong guy. He also plays characters that provide some sense of comic relief, usually a minion of some kind of relatively small size like Myoga on InuYasha
  • Many of his voices were inspired by his former work as a disc jockey at strip clubs.  


"I can go into a deeper range, so I get to play a lot of villains. Also, playing bad guys is fun because you're venting a bit. Getting out that aggression."

(On the occasional heroic roles he gets) "It can be different. You get the sappier lines, for example. It's obviously more fun to play the villain, because they're doing the things that are naughtier, more evil, things we'd get in trouble for normally, whereas being the clean-cut hero type is more like being a policeman. Not really, though, it's usually just a straighter thing. But then usually the hero gets the girl, doesn't he? So maybe it is alright playing the hero. I like 'em both."

happy birthday Paul.

One of Vancouver's finest VAs, and one of the most versatile of ranges I've seen (Paul can easily replicate the likes of Crispin Freeman, Jamieson Price, Patrick Seitz, Jim Cummings, Steve Blum, Fred Tatascoire, JB Blanc, Dee Bradley Baker, David Kaye, Keith Silverstein, and Michael McConnohie, and even other voice actors who work in Vancouver like Dale Wilson and Richard Newman. He could even be considered Scott McNeil II since both voice actors have such similar ranges), going from high pitched loke Myoga to borderline bass like Jabberwock

That being said if Dale Wilson and Don Brown arent available for Cell and Shenron respectively, I hope Paul gets those roles in the Ocean dub of DBZ Kai

Happy Birthday Paul Dobson!

Another of Ocean's finest VA's and much like his brothers talented in just about every way whether he'd be voicing villains, heroes, brutes, old folks and so much more.

My favourite role of his is without a doubt Naraku from InuYasha, Paul just oozes evil, charisma and cruelty in this role. Naraku is the type of villain who was successfully able to get under everyone's skin and just loved every minute of it. His voice for Naraku is simply perfect for the character, it's deep without being too deep sounding, it's pretty much perfect in every way.

A close runner up then would be Graham Aker/Mr. Bushido on Gundam 00, I found it to be a refreshing change of pace when he was cast as Graham, basically he's playing the Gundam equivalent of Captain America...if he was a total weaboo. I mean he's even using a lighter registry than he usually uses which was pretty nice.

Another personal fav of mine of his is Landmine from Transfomers Cybertron. Landmine was a pretty likeable old tough guy character and I feel Paul brought out the best of the character, and gave more depth to him than if he hadn't voiced him.

I also loved his performances as Doctor Doom, Mole Man, Alastor, Jabberwock, Myoga, Ginta, Juggernaut, Sideways, Tankor, Obsidian, Overhaul, Rodimus, Superion Maximus, Signal Lancer, Nemesis Prime, Folken Fanel, Zarbon, Dodoria, Nicky, Beta Ray Bill, Hogun, Shuma-Gorath, Dr. Wily, Magicman.EXE, Swordman.EXE, Lord Akaike, Whenua, Nidhiki, Sidorak, Demitri Maximoff, E.O. Captain, Elvis and Ronny the Jaws.

I'm really hoping that in Ocean's dub of DBZ Kai Paul Dobson does Cell because honestly that would be pitch perfect casting.

His Naraku convinced me he has the best "villain voice" in all of dubbed anime. What an amazing actor.

Happy 50th birthday, Paul. A great deal of range and power, as well as a simply hysterical old man voice.

It made me as Jolly as a Roger to see him reprise his role as Doctor Doom in Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
