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.

Today 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.

Scott's take had more personality and menace, whereas Mark's take felt a little too bland.

1. Scott McNeil (Saban dub) - This voice makes the character seem cocky. arrogant and youthful, a personality which matches the punk inspired design.

2. Scott McNeil (Pioneer dub) Sounds a bit too raspy in the uncut redub, like he has throat cancer or something. Still did better here than Mark Lancaster though.

3. Mark Lancaster - Bland, generic, lifeless, boring etc. This uninspired performance pretty much sums up FUNi's entire Tree of Might redub.

4. "Old Bastard" from the Big Green dub (wasn't included but i'll rank him anyway) - The UVA who played him (and many other characters) in the Big Green dub was woeful, he made the character sound like a frail old man.

@Miscast Btw i really wish we could edit the comments around here

@Miscast I'd say it also sums up FUNi's "Remastered" dub as well, IMO both the Ocean and Kai dubs have way more character then the FUNimation redub of the first two seasons, not sure if anyone else feels that way about the Remastered dub but that's just me.

I think Scott McNeil did better. Mark Lancaster is okay also.

Scott McNeil was epic as Diaz. The guy sounds like he's ready to viciously rip you apart, and he doesn't give a crap either way.

Mark Lancaster was good, but as already said, a bit generic.

Ah, back when Scott had good DBZ performances. He gets my vote here. Mark sounds really generic.

Ocean just seems to rise to the challenge for these early movies.

Gotta agree. They did a fantastic job with them, IMO.

Whenever I see this character, all that I can hear is purpleeyeswtf's "I raped Rudolph" line in Christmas Tree of Might. TFS

I agree. Scott McNeil really nailed Daiz's arrogance. I prefer the voice he used in the TV dub as it was smoother, but the raspy voice isn't too bad either.

But Mark Lanceaster was also very good as well. It may not have as much character as Scott's performance, but it does work for Daiz's "loyal henchman" character.

Gotta go with Scott McNeil! His voice seems to fit Daiz more than Mark. IMO

Mark just sounds more fitting and natural for this character. Scott's decent, but a little generic, and not very memorable.

I find Mark's voice for the role quite fitting..nothing generic about his voice whatsoever..its commanding yet shows a sense of much needed purpose now Scott's voice reminds me of his piccolo voice..its clearly in the same tone and style yet its just as effective.
