"Never ask a group of DBZ fans which dub they prefer" - TV Tropes profile on Dragonball
EDITOR'S OPINIONAlrighty then folks at last here is the VC for Gohan's older self, whether its his High School self in Buu Saga DBZ, or his Adult selves in DBGT and Alternate Timeline Future Gohan here is his VC.
We will start this one off with Lex Lang of all people in the 1997 English release of Dragon Ball GT for the PS1. While lets just say the voice acting in that game is considered kind of underwhelming with some considerable cases of miscasts. (In which highly renowned Fan Favorite VA Steve Blum was no exception.)
But Lex Lang actually did feel like kind of an exception, while I admit at first when it comes to Californian Anime Dub VA Talent Lex Lang wasn't exactly among my first choices for this role but he was a pleasant surprise in this one. While the fact that the Buu Saga Gohan we see in the game is when lets just say he has a more serious role in the show did help, Lex did do a fairly suitable voice and performance for the role that's probably one of the better performances in that game.
Earlier this decade when FUNimation got to the Buu Saga he was voiced by Kyle Hebert, now Kyle has had some roles in that dub before which were rather bit different. However Kyle actually did this rather well, its what really got us familiar with his young male voices and to me its probably at least his best performance in the show IMO. When it came to Older Gohan, he was pretty much FUNimation's choice except for ONE dub namely in their work of the DBZ Special History of Trunks in which he was voiced by Dameon Clarke.
Like Kyle, Dameon was also a bit of an interesting surprise as well as he too delivered a fairly fitting voice and overall good performance.
In the EuroCanadian dub of DBZ he was voiced by Ocean Group VA Brad Swaile, whom is often well known for light young male voices and this is no exception. While as much as I love Ocean Studios' voice talent and its no secret that I do but the casting wasn't always good in the EC dub but Brad was one of the better castings in the EC dub of the Buu Saga. Whether its during the more lighthearted earlier portions of the saga or when the saga got more serious Brad was indeed very fitting for the role.
And last but not least is Blue Water VA Scott Roberts as Gohan in Dragon Ball GT, while he is not as good as the others his performance was pretty good and a decent fit for Gohan. While Scott Roberts' performance as Gohan wasn't one of the best performances in the Blue Water dub of DBGT its certainly not one of the worst either.
Overall I like them all and I am not quite sure who to flat out pick amongst the 5 of them.
