Alrighty then folks, at last here is the VC for Gohan's older self.

We will start this one off with Lex Lang in the 1997 English release of Dragon Ball GT for the PS1. In general, let's just say the voice acting in that game is considered kind of underwhelming with some considerable cases of miscasts. Even 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 the talent pool he wasn't exactly among my first choices for this role, he was a pleasant surprise. While the fact that the Buu Saga Gohan we see in the game is when he has a more serious role in the show did help, Lex did a fairly suitable voice and performance that's probably one of the better ones 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 a bit different. However Kyle actually did this rather well. It's 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--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 he too delivered a fairly fitting voice and overall good performance.

In the EuroCanadian dub of DBZ, he was voiced by Brad Swaile, who is often well known for light young male voices--and this is no exception. It's no secret that I love the Ocean Group and Brad was one of the better castings in their dub of the Buu Saga. Whether it's during the more lighthearted earlier portions of the saga, or when things got more serious, Brad was indeed very fitting for the role.

And last but not least is Scott Roberts as Gohan in Dragon Ball GT's Blue Water dub. While he is not as good as the others, his performance was still pretty good and a decent fit for Gohan. While it wasn't one of the best performances in that dub of GT, it's certainly not one of the worst either.

Overall, I like them all, and I am not quite sure who to pick amongst the 5 of them.

Chris Hackney isn't on here yet so I can't vote for him, but if he was, I would've. He's definitely one of THE standout voice performances of the Bang Zoom dub of Super.

I like Kyle Hebert, Brad Swaile, and Lex Lang in the role too, though.

After watching clips of the Kai dub of the Buu Saga, Hebert sounds better than ever as Adult Gohan.

Now, if only Ocean got the chance to dub the Final Chapters to hear Brad with better direction and scripts.

Having seen Chris Hackney`s Gohan I can safely say he is a great Gohan. His chemistry with Harlacher is fantastic and his great saiyaman really impressed me. Honestly my 2nd favorite.

My problem is he makes Gohan feel a little young that`s a similar problem I have with Harlacher`s Videl but is not as much evident.

Definetly a standout from the male cast of the bang zoom dub

Kyle Hebert is always Gohan to me. he potrays the character so well and has improved in recent years. i like the chemistry he has with kara in both goten and videl, the 2 key characters in gohan`s life is spectecular. he has improved in recent years and his great saiyaman gets a chuckle out of me most of the time.

Brad as much flak ocean got in their dub post season 2, brad was perhaps one of the saving graces in post season 2 dub but his chemistry with jillian and stori was just weak compared to kyle and kara and while he may be a good gohan, he just wasnt great saiyaman sorry brad

1. Kyle Hebert (Kai) - He was perfect as Gohan here. He sounds genuinely youthful, earnest, kind. Just an all around fitting take for his character really.

2. Brad Swaile - I really love his voice for Gohan as well actually... although he does sound a little too light however.

3. Kyle Hebert (original)/Lex Lang - They both do pretty nice takes here, and you have to give Lex credit here for being the best voice in the whole game but... they sound just a bit too deep for my liking?

4. Scott Roberts - He's okay in the role I think. But not particularly memorable.

As for the future Gohan voices...

1. Dameon Clarke - Sounds perfect for the context of Gohan's character in the special.

2. Brian Dobson - He's a pretty nice fit too honestly. No complaints really

3. David Gasman - I would've actually ranked him above Brian, if he didn't have the whole "rushed line delivery" that the Big Green dub unfortunately had at times (Which is especially weird in this case considering David usually didn't have that problem with his characters) but his voice is definitely really fitting for the part I'd say
said at 5:55 PM on Sat Apr 22 2017
@HylianBelmont What in particular do you find light about Brad Swaile's take? IMO, he's always sounded like the most realistic voice that Gohan has had in English. He sounds really meek & earnest. Not necessarily in this clip so much, but just in general I think that Gohan would sound like that.

Although I do realize that I have zero evidence to back up this claim. Even in the Japanese version, they just played the Nozawa wild card instead of trying to "mature" Gohan (& his family)'s voices. Although with that said, this is Dragon Ball, so I'm probably swimming upstream trying to search for realism...
said at 1:11 AM on Sun Apr 23 2017
@huzaifa_ahmed He just overdoes it a little bit on the "meek and earnest" part of Gohan's voice IMO. Kyle Hebert's Kai take has the best balance I'd say.

@HylianBelmont Well, Brad didn't exactly have the best voice direction in the Westwood dub. I'm sure that if Ocean ever got the chance to dub The Final Chapters, he could do better.

@huzaifa_ahmed You do realize that a lot of teenagers tend to sound than their age, right? Kyle's take is just as valid as Brad's is. So I don't see how Brad sounds more realistic than Kyle.

I did see a clip of DBZ Kai's Buu Saga dub on FUNimation's Youtube channel. Kyle Hebert has changed his Gohan significantly. I do understand where people are coming from when they say that Hebert sounded too old especially for someone who's around 16-18. Kyle this time around sounds a more age appropriate.

Might link the video in the Dragonball forums just incase anyone is interested.

I Am evenly split between Kyle and Brad both imo capture everything about Gohan even under bad direction both gave good performances. If you want something Closer to the
Japanese version Brad is the way to go,but Kyle does a great job too.

In History of trunks both Brian
Dobson and Dameon
Clarke did a good job had voices that fit a more harden

Lex Lang s voice in Final Bout kinda reminded me of
Kyle Herbert and was the only one not a miscast. Final
Bout actually had several talented voice actors but nearly all were miscast

I feel as though people misunderstand Brad Swaile's interpretation of the character. The supposed "inconsistency" in his performance is, in my opinion, there to show the character's growth from naive teenager to a strong man. It's an evolution of character.

Saying that "he sounds like Light Yagami" is also a pretty irrelevant complaint to me because 1) he isn't changing his voice much to sound like Light or Gohan, that's just the way he naturally sounds and 2) By the time he's speaking in a slower and more calm pace (similar to Light's character), Gohan has already had his potential unlocked and gone through a big change internally. Even the other characters acknowledge the change in Gohan so it makes sense for him to sound more mature by that point.

Ian Corlett explains it perfectly when talking about how he evolved his Cheetor's voice here: https://youtu.be/GzUjf-R8vlg?t=9m24s

I don't have many nice things to say about Kyle's version of the character, it's a good young man voice fitting for a "cool" character but in my opinion it's wrong for Gohan because that's not really who he is. Gohan might act cool but he's clearly more of a quirky teenager which I think Swaile does a better job of portraying.

When it comes to an older, battle hardened Future Gohan I'd have to go with Dameon Clarke as he does a wonderful job. I do admittedly have a soft spot for Brian Dobson's version too but I suspect Ocean would have cast someone else had they actually dubbed the History of Trunks special.

I think it's incredible that there's not a single truly bad performance or unfitting voice for Older Gohan at all. Astonishingly, even AB Groupe and the people behind the casting of DBGT: Final Bout really understood the character fairly well.

I guess to elaborate on how I rank them and the way I see it:

Regular Gohan:

1. Kyle Hebert- It's a shame the clip doesn't really show Kyle using his regular Older Gohan voice, which is much more innocent sounding and carefree, but also not too high or low pitched, either- just like your typical young gentleman. His battle voice (heard in the clip) is very different, but honestly, I think it works fairly well, too. Gohan's attitude was very different when he became more confident after the Elder Kai unlocked his potential in the Series, so Kyle probably changed the tone in battle to conform to that change in personality.

2. Lex Lang- For a game with so, so many weak and unfitting performances, his performance really stands out from it. I could see this voice working really well in the actual Series, actually, Lex could be a great Gohan if given the chance one day.

3. Brad Swaile- If you're looking for something closer to Masako Nozawa's Older Gohan voice, then I can see you preferring this take. For me, his take is fairly good, but I feel it's a little higher pitched than I'd like Older Gohan to sound like. Still, he does get the character's personality down, but I'm hearing too many hints of his Light Yagami voice Brad would do later in his career, so it's a bit distracting.

4. Scott Roberts- A decent voice, but he has some really stiff acting behind it. For Blue Water standards, though, this is actually pretty listenable.

Future Gohan:

1. Dameon Clarke- He has the most depth and presence to his take on the character. My only complaint is that sometimes he slipped into his Imperfect Cell voice in the special, like when he said, "Remember how you FELT that DAY," but overall, he did an excellent job.

2. Brian Dobson- He has a very fitting voice itself for Gohan, but the tone and delivery is what throws it off base for me. Future Gohan is very different from his regular timeline counterpart, yes, but Dobson almost sounds too villainous at points in the clip.

3. David Gasman- This voice would ironically be very, very good on Regular Gohan, but on the very battle worn and weary Future Gohan? This is way too light and gentle sounding a voice for this particular rendition of the character.

Brian's voice sounds pretty good for Gohan, even if it wasn't exactly the voice I'd have expected him to use. If I have any complaints, it's that he sounds like a little too...jaded, even somewhat villainous. Like an anti-hero instead of a straight-up good guy.

Maybe Team Four Star was right, and he really DOES take after Piccolo more than he does Goku.

For Older Gohan, they're more or less equals (for the most part). They all got their strengths and weaknesses.

For Future Gohan though, I'd go with Dameon Clarke, no contest.

But for regular Gohan, I will say, if Brad Swaile were to do it now...he'd be the best Gohan. So, I'm going with him.

David Gasman is a bit deeper than I think he should be, but he sounds good. To be fair he is playing an alternate timeline Gohan, so I suppose the deeper voice can fit for that. His performance sounds good and maybe it's just that clip, but he isn't saying everything so fast that it sounds ridiculous.

I have a hard time picking between Kyle Hebert and Brad Swaile, both are excellent fits for Gohan.

Kyle makes me think that he is Sean Schemmel's Goku's son. He also does well with his more hot blooded Saiyaman moments and also sounds like he will make for a great father too.

What I love about Brad Swaile is that he gets the more gentler and outgoing aspect of Gohan but also at times weirdly enough makes him sound a bit too cruel sounding....still I would love for him to reprise in Ocean Kai.

Lex Lang does a fantastic job too despite how little material he has to work with. He really sounds like Kyle Hebert which is amusing considering how many years before Lang did GT Final Bout before Kyle was cast. The standout performance in this game.

Scott Roberts showed some promise. I wouldn't object if he reprises for Ocean Kai either.

As for Future Gohan. I like both FUNi and Ocean voices for him, I'm amazed they cast Dameon Clarke as Future Gohan, I find it a rather impressive performance, he sounds kinda how Gohan would sound in a bad future training Trunks as the last hope for the planet.

Brian Dobson (who I believe voiced him in the flashback scene in the Ocean dub) was rather impressive as well. He nearly sounds unrecognizable and reminds me of Scott McNeil's Duo Maxwell at times. If it was indeed Brian, it was a great example of his range and a good playing against type role for him to do.

I like them both honestly but I prefer Dameon Clarke more.

Ultimately I'll go with Kyle Hebert since he played the role longer and has had more a consistent run overall.
said at 8:27 AM on Wed Feb 24 2016
David Gasman works rather well as Future Gohan, maybe a bit too deep like his Goku but for the context of his depiction it works and does make sense.

I feel he still brings out the earnestness that Gohan is known for, even in a depressing bad future.

David Gasman really is the male Masako Nozawa, having been able to pull off Gohan, Goku and Bardock (granted in their adult forms) well all things considered.

They're all good fits, but I liked Kyle the most, he came off as just this intelligent, studious teenager who was shy and reticent like Gohan really is, but I think Lex did quite well and was a standout from that less than stellar DBGT: Final Bout release back in 1997.

Brad sounds good with his voice, but something about the performance seems a bit goofy to me, though granted it could be because I'm used to Kyle.

Dameon to me sounds like a cross fusion of Kelamis' Goku with his Imperfect Cell...it's not bad, but seems strange.

Scott seems okay, but to me is the weakest of the group.

I'll go with Kyle simply because he has the most experience with the role and is current "official" voice, though I know I'll love his performance in Kai with a better script and direction. But honestly, it seems like every dubbing studio and project ended up at the same interpretation of Gohan, and as a result all of these performances sound very similar. But I guess that's a good thing, considering the usual wide gulf of quality between the different dubs.

Lex Lang: I'm impressed. Lex managed to actually pull off a really good voice in Final Bout. Too bad he didn't get much to do.

Kyle Hebert: There's just something about his voice that really clicks with me. He's got a great emotional range that fit Gohan in most situations. Really looking forward to hearing him in Kai. Not to mention his Saiyaman is just hilarious.

Dameon Clarke: He's got a few odd lines, but there's an intensity to his voice that really works for Future Gohan.

Brad Swaile: I don't know. His voice was pretty inconsistent. There were times when he sounded like a completely different character. His Saiyaman is also really weird sounding. I'm not sure how to describe it. I could never hate a Brad Swaile role though and he's really good in more relaxed moments.

Scott Roberts: He's just too generic. Nothing about his voice really says Gohan to me.

I'd also like to add that Oceab's barely heard Future Gohan was actually pretty good. Most say it was Brian Dobson, though I can't say for certain.

Overall I'm not sure exactly how I would rank them. I just know that Kyle is on top and Scit on the bottom.

Dameon Clarke for Future Gohan. A bit forced but gave him that overall noble sense to his personality where he was like his own version of Namek saga Goku.

Kyle Hubert could work on his yells for gohan's transformations. They kinda sound flat, nothing like seans... but his overall Gohan is great. He also nails Gohan's geeky shiness and ocassional insecurities but could do better if his pitch was higher so he sounds younger.

Lex is actually pretty darn good, he just needs some tweaking under more experienced direction. For an ameteur I hear his potential as a VA. He just gives Gohan that natural confidence and sounds very youthful for him.

Brad sounds like where they got Kyle Hubert from and sounds oddly sadistic with his eerily calm voice but I thinks its too monotone for Gohan, not enough emotion.

Scott sounds more like a Yamcha then Gohan. Like Lex he has the potential just needs more professional direction.

Lex Lang had a fitting voice, but his delivery was kind of stilted at times.
Kyle Hebert's the voice I'm used to, and it's overall like a better version of Lex Lang's.
Dameon Clarke played a different version of Gohan so it's fitting that his delivery was a little more forceful-sounding. As others have mentioned, he also mixed a little bit of Goku into the voice which was a nice touch.
Brad Swaile's voice was a little lighter than I'd like, and something felt a little off in his performance, but not sure what.
Scott Roberts was alright.
Overall, I actually went with Dameon Clarke, but the rest weren't too bad.

Kyle has voiced the character more and I would have to go with him, but to be honest, his voice annoys me slightly. He's good, but I agree that he doesn't express Gohan's gentle nature and youthfulness quite as well as Brad Swaile. However, he really does well with scenes involving Videl, so I like him overall and he might impress me in Kai.

Brad Swaile is good and I hope Ocean uses him for their dub of Kai, he could do even better now.

Dameon Clarke is good as future Gohan, you can't even tell he's the same actor that played Cell unless you're very familiar with Dameon's voice already.

I would personally like to hear Jason Liebrecht try the character, after his performance in Eden of the East I think he would make a great teenaged/adult Gohan.

I got the chance to meet Kyle in person at Armageddon 2011 in Melbourne, Australia.
Since Kyle is now the current voice of Big the Cat as of Sonic Colours, I asked him to do a Kamehameha in Big the Cat's voice, which was awesome!
& the card he signed for me said, "Milan, go Super Saiyan!", that made me fangasm.
He was even impressed with my take on his character (mostly Gohan, the Narrator, Kiba & Big). Woo-hoo! Go Kyle!!

@MilanTheVillain01 Big the Cat doing a Kamehameha? You should have recorded that.

Well...I have this mixed one.
I like Kyle voice for Adult Gohan and Ultimate Gohan in the series. But the Future Gohan voice is perfect as Dameon!

Kyle and Brad are pretty similar, but Kyle sounds a little less forced and he has much more experience with the role.

I take back what I said before. All of the older Gohan voices have their strengths. They're mostly equal.

I vote for Dameon J Clarke. He really makes Gohan sound grown up and headstrong, but I also hear a bit of Goku in his voice which is fitting seeing as how he is his son.

sweet I've been waiting a while for this VC.

Interesting that they all have similarities and differences so it really is a close match.

I personally prefer Kyle Hebert though. Probably because he's the voice I'm most used to.
