EDITOR'S OPINIONIn the old Saban/FUNi episodes, Nappa was voiced by Ocean Group VA Michael Dobson. Now, we all know how much of a fan I am of Ocean, so I may be a bit biased. But still, I always did like Michael Dobson's work as Nappa. It was a rather gravelly voice for a big, dumb, violent brute like Nappa. In fact, I found it to be one of Dobson's better performances.
In the Funimation dub of Bardock: The Father of Goku, he was voiced by Chris Sabat. Chris is sometimes criticized for how this isn't one of his most original performances--in fact it doesn't sound that much different from his Piccolo voice--but to be honest, I didn't think it was that bad. I mean, I can understand why Chris would try to go with a gruff, deep voice for someone like Nappa. It's not the best of the Nappa performances here, but I didn't think it was that bad.
And now for the last but not least is his current VA, Phil Parsons, and he is by no means a bad one. Phil Parsons went with a rather gravelly tone for Nappa, like what Michael Dobson did, but gave it enough difference to make it his own and work fine as well.
Overall I liked them all, but I am going with Michael Dobson at first, Phil Parsons at a close second, and Chris Sabat at a not-so distant third.
