Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Cui with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Dragon Ball

Cui is one of Frieza's henchman. He and Vegeta had a rivalry going on for a long time, until Vegeta finally showed his superior strength by killing him when confronting each other on Planet Namek.

In the English version of Dragon Ball Z anime, Cui was first voiced by Ian Corlett in the Ocean Group dub.

In the FUNimation dub of Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Z Kai, Cui was voiced by Bill Townsley.

I personally feel Bill Townsley is the superior Cui, especially in Dragon Ball Z Kai.

Oh yeah, I'm going with Bill Townsley here when it comes to Cui. His reprisal in the Kai dub is much better & he got the opportunity to add a little more personality to the role.

Ian James Corlett is pretty good as well. I was surprised that he voiced him all those years back. It sounds a tad blander than Bill in this role which kinda holds him back. My vote goes to Bill.

Bill Townsley plays the snivelling rival of Vegeta perfectly. I'm glad that Bill was able to reprise because in Kai he really shined there.

Ian James Corlett - I'm surprised that it was him all along, for the most part he played Cui well making him very menacing and crafty, though the throat sounds like he could use a lozenge.

I like both but Bill added a bit more to the role so I'll go with him.

I think it was Ian Corlett who voiced Cui in the Ocean dub, not Jason...

@Redeye64 Hadn't Ian left by the time they did the Namek Saga?

@Kioea He left after Secrets Revealed (where Vegeta killed Dodoria) and Peter didn't take over the role until Stay Away from Frieza (King Kai warns of course). Ian could've done some more roles before he left.

I think you could possibly be right, actually (though I could be wrong as well). It's Cui's yell at the point I'm linking that I think sounds a lot like Ian's Goku yells at times:

Both do a good job but I feel that Jason's voice fits Cui's "coward who's in over his head" character more.

@OldSchoolFTW Agreed. Bill was REALLY wooden for most of his performance in the Z redub, but his Kai performance was even better than Jason's.

IKR? Exactly how I feel about this one.

I prefer Bill's Kai performance.

Bill Townsley was a bit better IMO. Though I do think he was a bit better in Z. I also heard someone else played him in the original Funi dub of the Frieza saga flashback (whom Bill redubbed for the remastered boxset).

@PurpleWarrior13 That was someone of the same race as Cui. That character was voiced by Britten and Bill redubbed later.
