Guys, I think the DW5 voice and WO voice might be different people. The DW5 is noticeably much rougher sounding. I think it's possible that one actually is Daran, but I'm not 100% certain.

@Nightmare Crusher I should have some free time so I'm reminding myself to check this out later.

@NCZ You know what, DW5 Lu Meng kind of sounds like Tony Oliver.

@NCZ Furthermore, I believe Xtreme Legends changes over to the WO voice.

@Nightmare Crusher Oh great, the voice in DW6 is another completely different person.
Tony Oliver took over for the expansions and Strikeforce.

@Nightmare Crusher Last thing, I swear. I took another listen and I think the DW5 vanilla voice is a little closer to Robert Martin Klein than I originally thought.
At this point I'm out of ideas.

 4 Shout Outs!
Lu Meng has one of the weirdest vocal historiies in the Warriors series. Daran played him in Warriors Orochi 1. Then Tony replaced him in Warriors Orochi 2 even though Pang De wasn't replaced. Then Daran comes back for the main game of 6, but then the expansions replaced him with Tony again. It's just so strange.

@Nightmare Crusher Warriors Orochi 2 came out after 6 vanilla in the US actually

@HienFan Did it? I didn't remember. Still weird that Lu Meng's voice changed, but not Pang De's or the generic officer that I think is played by Daran. (Not 100% sure.)

@Nightmare Crusher Maybe Daran Norris didn't voice Lu Meng.

@NCZ That is also a possibility. I never really remembered Lu Meng's sounding that much like him. I don't know, maybe it was Robert Martin Klein the whole time. I'm not very familiar with his range.

@Nightmare Crusher Considering Daran is union someone else might be voicing him?

@HienFan Daran has gone off union before IIRC. In fact, I think he stopped around the time WO2 came out.

@HienFan Daran Norris used to do a lot of dubbing work. He had prominent roles in Bastard, Fist of the North Star, and Cowboy Bebop among other things.

As a side note, I will mention that I'm fairly certain Daran Norris voiced at least Pang De. It sounds a lot like him. Lu Meng is the one that's more in doubt.

@NCZ I guess it is worth noting that Pang De's voice is different between 5 and WO, but I'm pretty sure it's still Daran Norris in both games. It's just a little less obvious in WO.

@Nightmare Crusher Okay, I'm kind of dumb. The generic officer I thought might have been Daran is very obviously voiced by Wally Wingert. I have no idea what I was thinking.

@Nightmare Crusher It might not mean anything, but now I am wondering if Daran was Pang De in WO. Something about the way Pang De forces out every line in that game and WO2 seems odd for Daran and is a sharp contrast to how Pang De sounded in DW5.
