EDITOR'S OPINION

Alrighty 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.

Swalie sounds too sadistic, almost evil. All I hear when he talks is Light Yagami.

I'll go with Kyle Hebert cuz he's the one I'm used to. They all sound pretty good, though. Lex Lang sounds pretty similar to Kyle.

I was a bit surprised when I found out that was Dameon Clarke. Cell playing Gohan seems odd, but you couldn't tell it was the same guy.

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.

I actually like Brad Swalie the best for Older Gohan. He maintained a voice that sounds very childlike and enthusiastic for this character.

That being said, I feel Kyle Hebert and Lex Lang were great as well and did a good job expressing the younger teen he is.

Dameon is alright, but a bit too forced. Scott was okay as well.

1. Lex Lang - Would've like to hear him under better direction. His voice sounds like Kyle Hebert's, but better.
2. Brad Swaile - Age appropriate and cool sounding, but also a bit too light.
3. Kyle Hebert - Okay, but I can tell that's not a teenage voice. Too deep.
4. Dameon Clarke - Great for older future Gohan.
5. Scott Roberts - It was decent.

@Galactic_Cyrus 1: You see? That's what I keep saying!

2: Yeah agreed there. His Goten was awesome though.

3: I still think he's the no.1 but... Ten Gohan not quite, but it's perfect for GT

4: Agreed and I miss this voice period. I just want to hear it on other characters.

5: You're merciful.

@Galactic_Cyrus If Daran Norris wasn't around Dameon Clarke might have taken my favorite voice-actor spot. He is in my opinion by far one of the most talented actors Funimation ever had. I brought a kind of tangible energy to every role he did that many actors in anime dubs rarely accomplish, IMO.

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'm used to Kyle Hebert, so I'm going with him.

I was really surprised with Dameon Clarke, I gotta give him credit for making Gohan sound like a strong and experienced fighter, plus he sounds a bit like Goku as well.

Then it's Lex Lang at third, one of the better voices in GT: Final bout.

Brad sounds a little forced, while Scott didn't really seem to fit Gohan at all.

Dameon Clarke's clip here is just one big "That's what she said" moment. But, I digress.

I prefer Kyle Hebert. As Pokejedservo said in the Editor's Opinion, Gohan is one of Kyle'.s best perfomances (aside from the Narrator, IMO).


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!!

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.

Definitely Kyle Hebert.

Worth noting that the DBZ clips use the Mystic/Power-up Gohan.

It'd be nice to have the geeky high school Gohan clips included too since Hebert sounds much younger and slightly different than the more serious voice he uses later on.

Not sure if Swaile is any different since I haven't watched those episodes of the Ocean dub.

I am fortunate to have watched both ocean and Funimation versions of Teen Gohan during the early 2000's. Funimation had the better script, especially words such as "kill" and "dead" were used. Ocean's version (whilst aired here in the UK) didn't use such words (kill, die, dead etc) due to TV regulations, which made the show watered down for afternoon showing. Brad brings out the youth and dorky personality of Gohan better; while Kyle had the better power-up screams.

Brad Swaile is a much better fit Gohan's age. He's supposed to be entering high school and just hitting puberty.

Swaile's pitch and tone also fit in a lot better with the previous actresses who have played his voice as a child.

I really like Kyle Hebert and his performance, though. He just makes Gohan sound way much older.

Brad Swaile is the best of these. He has this gentleness in his voice that lends itself to Gohan's personality, but he's also able to sound forceful, as well. Kyle Hebert's isn't bad, either, but not nearly as good.

The others sound sort of flat.

Lex Lang's Gohan is quite good. Certainly one of the stand-out performances in the otherwise mediocre dubbing of DBGT: Final Bout.

Hebert and Scott Roberts deliver pretty good performances (as PJS stated, Roberts is one of the decent performances in the Blue Water dub of GT). Both sound like your standard young-male superheroes. Can't really go wrong with either of them.

Daemon Clarke's Gohan actually sounds like Sean Schemmel's Goku which is fitting considering Gohan is Goku's son. Sidenote: upon listening to the above clip again, his Gohan sounds like a strange combination of both Peter Kelamis' and Sean Schemmel's Goku. Interesting.

I've got to go with Brad Swaile though. He really conveys Gohan's gentle side well in the earlier Buu saga content. He also does a surprisingly serious 'mystic' Gohan. Its the light-hearted, gentle, humorous nature Swaile brings to the character that really sells me though. It seems to be more in line with the source material and really resonates with me. His voice also has a unique quality to it whereas the others, while good, come across as generic-young superhero types.

Kyle Hebert for the Buu saga; Dameon Clarke however gave an essential performance for the History of Trunks, but he wouldn't work for the Buu saga, so, Hebert for me.

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.
