EDITOR'S OPINION(Note: A clip of Mike Shepherd as Demon King Piccolo does not seem to exist on the internet so far so until further notice it is not available.)
Happy Fathers Day everyone! For this Dragon Ball VC we have one of the most menacing villains in the original Dragon Ball series... DEMON KING PICCOLO! In the FUNi dub of the original Dragon Ball series Chris Sabat is the one to voice King Piccolo in this dub of the series (among other things such as the Video games that Demon King Piccolo appeared in). One could easily notice that Chris Sabat's Demon King Piccolo voice is not that different from his Piccolo voice (though I suppose Chris' voice for the older version of Demon King Piccolo is a bit more different but not by much). However despite that I certainly wouldn't consider Chris' voice as Demon King Piccolo to be bad though (in which in retrospection it does kind of make sense why the voice would be similar) as Chris' performance for the role was very good. While Piccolo was a villain whom went from Villain to Hero, Demon King Piccolo was flat out evil and Chris' performance reflected pretty well. To make a long story short Chris Sabat's work as Demon King Piccolo was very good and a fine example of the FUNi dub of Dragon Ball.
In the EuroCanadian dub of DBZ there was a flashback scene of the end of Kid Goku's battle against King Piccolo in which Scott McNeil gets to take over the role here. While once again alike Chris Sabat, Scott McNeil is also well known for voicing Piccolo and his voice for Demon King Piccolo is not that different from his Piccolo voice. However alike his FUNi counterpart Scott's voice for the role works well for the role as his performance does have a good sense of a "Evil Demon King". Unfortunately unlike Chris Sabat, Scott McNeil has so far only voiced Demon King Piccolo for that one scene so far but still he definitely shown the potential that he would do well with the role if he had more lines. Overall both of these guys did well as while Chris may have had a lot more material to work with both of these guys did well in their own ways.
