Voice Compare » Dragon Ball » Majin Buu

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Majin Buu with sound clips and images.
Majin Buu is the last main antagonist of the Dragon Ball Z series and this VC is for his "Fat Buu" form which is the first form we see of Majin Buu in the storyline. Majin Buu is the monstrous force that was created by the wizard Bibidi in which his son Babidi was the one whom unleashed him upon the world. This Majin Buu seems to have such a jovial child-like personality however he was still a deadly force that was out to cause nothing more than destruction.

EDITOR'S OPINION

Today on the Dragon Ball VC section we have a little something for the first form of Majin Buu that we see... FAT BUU! We shall begin this with the FUNi dub of DBZ in which Josh Martin voiced Majin Buu here. Josh's work as Majin Buu is definitely his most known role and is probably one of his most renowned performances and I can fairly understand why here. Josh did a rather high voice that does suit his comical and cutesy nature however Josh's performance does also suit on how lets just say Majin Buu can be anything BUT comically cute as well. So to make a long story short Josh's work as Majin Buu does sound suitably childish (both in a good and bad way) and is a good example of the voice work in the FUNi dub of the series.

Now for the EuroCanadian dub of DBZ with Ocean Group Scott McNeil gets to take over the role here. To be quite honest I found Scott's work as Buu to be really underrated as I thought his voice for the role was very suiting for the role as well. While Scott has done rather high voices before his Majin Buu voice is a little different from what I would normally hear from him but that is by all means cool with me as Scott's voice was also rather fitting for Buu's persona as well. (However whenever Majin Buu is being evil I admit I do think Scott does make Majin Buu sound a bit more sinister.) But still whenever Majin Buu is being friendly or being destructive Scott McNeil's performance for the role genuinely worked with the role as well.

In the Blue Water dub of Dragon Ball GT Corby Proctor gets to take over the role of Majin Buu in this dub. Corby's voice for Majin Buu is well to be blunt not all that good, oh sure it is rather high but it sounds rather forced and it can be occasionally kind of hard to understand what Corby is even trying to say. To be fair Corby's performance as Majin Buu seems to be passable enough but still while there are some good performances in the Blue Water dub of DBGT this isn't one of them, its not the worst performance in this dub but its definitely not one of the best. Overall I liked Josh and Scott the most while Corby is a fairly distant second.

Josh Martin sounds the best here. Scott Mcneil's take sounds similar to Elmo from Sesame Street, but it works.

Corby sounds like Jar Jar Binks. Just terrible xD

Josh is the only one I like here: Scott sounds like an imitation of Elmo, and Corby sounds atrocious.

Josh sounds most natural, he can do the voice while altering his tone of emotions into ranges that dont break the pitch. I think hes best handled that roll.

Scott isnt bad at all but sounds a bit weird to me, kinda unclear with his word pronounciation at times and sounds like hes talking through a glass of water... though I agree with the user below.. he sounds too babish and cartoony rather than childish.

Corby is just awful.

1. Josh Martin - His high pitched, childish voice was just perfect, and he was very funny and endearing even when he was a bad guy.

2. Scott McNeil - What's up with this dub giving Scott weak performances? He's trying to sound more babyish than childish, and we end up with an Elmo imitation.

3. Corby Proctor - Did Jar Jar Binks and Gollum do the fusion dance here?

Josh Martin was hilarious as Majin Buu. I actually found his performance quite likeable, and pretty funny as well.

Scott McNeil doesn't do that great a job here. He sounds somewhat like Elmo to me. It sounds closer to the Japanese seiyu, but then I prefer Josh's performance to that actor's myself *gasp* (such blasphemy, I prefer how the FUNi dub did things over the original version here).

Corby Proctor is downright horrid. One of the worst voices in the Blue Water dub of DBGT. He sounds, as many have said, like Jar Jar Binks. I suppose it's good for laughs, but it doesn't fit Buu that well.

@OldSchoolFTW Like I said up there, Proctor's rendition is a fusion of Jar Jar and Gollum! Seriously, just listen to it! It's Jar Jar's voice without the accent but with Smeagol's tone instead!

That's really a perfect description of how Corby Proctor sounds in this role.

Josh Martin! I find the voice kind of annoying but the way he asked that woman if she thought he was sexy and then asked her to give him a kiss, and then ranted about being expected to live up to models' body images is just so weird and hilarious!

I don't think it's perfect, but certainly better than that crap Scott and Corby did.

Josh Martin, he had a good balance of Buu's childish and threatening sides brilliantly.

Normally Scott is a great VA, but here he sounds forced and sometimes constipated for some reason.

Corby just sounds like Jar Jar lol! :D

@Red524 Really? I thought Scott sounded like Jar Jar Binks. But, that might just be my ears playing tricks on me.
