Voice Compare » Dragon Ball » Daiz
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Daiz with sound clips and images.
Daiz is a member of Turles Crusher Corps squadron whom made his only appearance in the 3rd Dragon Ball Z Movie Tree of Might. While Daiz loyally serves Turles however Daiz was the Prince of the planet Kabocha on the Pukinpa Dynasty in which after when Daiz and his men fought Turles valiantly Turles allowed Daiz to be one of his soldiers. In the movie Tree of Might Daiz is one the soldiers whom aided Turles in his quest to use the Tree of Might to sap the energy on earth and he worked with his fellow soldier Cacao.
EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Dragon Ball VC section we take a look at one of Turles Henchman in the 3rd DBZ Movie... DAIZ! In the late 90's English dub of the DBZ Tree of Might from FUNimation Scott McNeil voiced Daiz in both the edited version from FUNi/Saban and the uncut version from FUNi/Pioneer. Oddly enough Scott's work as Daiz is an example on how the cut and uncut versions of that dub have different voice tracks as most of this clip is Scott's Daiz voice in the uncut dub while the last 2 seconds is from the edited version. Oddly enough I actually kind of prefer Scott's Daiz voice in the edited version as it sounds a bit smoother than his raspier voice in the uncut version (but his voice in the uncut version isn't bad though). But still despite which voice we are talking about Scott's performance in the dub is good as it does give Daiz a good sense of cockiness which does suit the role.
When FUNimation redubbed the Tree of Might movie by themselves a few years later Mark Lancaster gets to take over the role here and I admit I have some mixed feelings here. Mark's voice for the role is kind of generic, I mean okay its not really bad but it more sounds like he is just using his regular voice here. Though to be fair Mark's performance was pretty good though as he plays Daiz as a loyal soldier whom is eager to take his enemies down and he does a pretty good job with that so in other words Mark's handiwork on the role is decent. Overall I suppose I will go with Scott McNeil the most as Mark Lancaster was decent in the role but Scott's work did have a bit more of a personality.
