Voice Compare » Dragon Ball » Nappa
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Nappa with sound clips and images.
Nappa, the big bald bulky Saiyan whom was pretty much just the big guy that use to be Vegeta's right hand man and one of the few survivors of Planet Vegeta's destruction. He was also the General of the Saiyan army.

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 liked Michael Dobson's work as Nappa as 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 89th episode of DBZ namely in the (edited) FUNimation dub of the show (and of the DBZ Special "Bardock Father Of Goku") he was voiced by FUNi VA Chris Sabat. Now as for this performance Chris was often criticized on how lets just say 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 remotely gruff deep voice for someone like Nappa. Its not the best of the Nappa performances here but I didn't think it was that bad.
And now for the last but not the least is FUNi VA Phil Parsons whom is his current VA now 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.
