While I like all three voices for Imperfect Cell equally and like Dameon Clarke the best as Perfect Cell, this is one I have to give to Travis Willingham. He imitates Clarke's take without over-exaggerating the "frog in the throat" garble in his voice like Clarke himself did.

Dale Wilson is the weakest one here, and I agree with those who say this would've fit Perfect Cell more.

Dameon Clarke going 3 for 3. And yeah, Dale really SHOULD have used this voice for Perfect Cell.

Um, Dale Wilson - why didn't you save this voice for the PERFECT form? It'd have been, well, PERFECT!

Dale Wilson should've used this voice for his Perfect form. Sounds way less campy

@TheUltimatePhantom1 The thing is, he actually did. There are a few episodes after the transformation where he slips back into his Semi-Perfect voice. After that, he pretty much stays in the voice we know.

Also, when he reverts to Semi-Perfect, he goes back to his Imperfect voice. Even at the time, I was confused.

This Westwood dub seems like it's got to be the most awkward thing to listen to from an Ocean dub team.

@Kioea In case anyone wants to hear this beautiful moment for themselves, here it is.

@Nightmare Crusher's literally just like Kioea said, the Semi Perfect cell has the Imperfect Cell voice. The gargling is also hilarious, too.

@Nightmare Crusher Hah, you even put the glorious gargle that Dale Wilson is known for. So hilarious.

While Dameon's Kai take is still the best, I think I'll bump Dale up to second. He did really well for this form of Cell.

I think Semi-Perfect Cell should actually sound really awkward sounding since he's not quite perfect yet, and both Dameon Clarke and Travis Willingham capture that perfectly.

Dale Wilson sounds too comfortable as Semi-Perfect Cell and honestly while he sounds great, I don't think its the most fitting.

I hope in Ocean Kai, Paul Dobson takes over as Cell. He has a range that can allow him to pull off as many distinctive unique voices for all three forms. I could see Paul doing a voice similar to his E.O Captain from Black Lagoon. but more intentionally awkward sounding.

Gotta agree with munsonx4, NitroEX, and Metabad on this one...Dale Wilson's the only one who doesn't sound like a fat guy with food in his mouth trying to sound tough.

Well after listening to more of the Ocean Dub for the Cell saga. For this form of Cell I actually liked Dale Wilson's performance. Only thing I didn't like was his yells but that's about it. I also find it funny how Dale was Dameon's teacher in Voice acting and they both ended up voicing Cell. Haha

Dameon Clarke does it best for me. His derpy-throat voice sounds more clear and natural when compared. It literally sounds like a mix inbetween his perfect and imperfect voice which made sense.

Where as Travis just sounded more generic and bloated in that voice. Like he was trying to copy Dameon but not quite has it.

It isnt bad for a replacement but his range in tones in that voice isnt as diverse as Dameon's. Travis just doesnt have that undertone needed and doesnt give me that arrogant but comedically incompetent attitude Dameon does.

1. Travis Willingham - Perfected Dameon's take by toning down the lisp a little bit.
2. Dameon Clarke - It's okay, but could do without that garbled lisp that sounds like something's stuck in his throat.
3. Dale Wilson - He can not act very well, which seriously hinders this take.

I like Dameon Clarke's take the most because he's in an awkward limbo between his perfect and imperfect forms. It makes him sound awkward when he's trying to convince Vegeta to allow him to reach his perfect form, yet throughout the whole thing he still conveys Cell as a cocky and imposing threat and gives a perfectly flexible performance despite the fact that it sounds like he's gargling rocks.

@PsychicVoiceSpy So I'm not the only one who thought that Dameon sounded like an awkward version of his Perfect Cell. It makes *ahem* perfect sense.
said at 8:15 PM on Tue Apr 9 2013
@Nightmare Crusher Yup, it does make perfect sense. I like the fact that the voice is ugly and awkward sounding and the fact that Dameon is still able to convey all of Cell's emotions despite that. It really is perfect for showing his desperation, clawing his way through his evolution to his perfect state.

Dameon wins again, although as many have stated, Semi-Perfect Cell has a pretty iffy voice on the whole and DEFINITELY not as good as Imperfect or Perfect.

Travis was surprisingly... bland in this role, which was a bit sad to see really. From the clip bove, he seems to be putting little actual emotion into the voice.

Dale had... exactly the same voice as he did in the other forms, and I've already talked about how bad a job he did with regards to them, despite that, the performance here is... pretty good for him, not gonna lie.

In this particular form, Cell is meant to be a dim-witter, hulking brute. Travis Willingham evokes that particular side of him, perfectly.

Although, I do give credit to Dameon Clarke for outdoing Travis in terms of cockiness. & I also gives to Dale Wilson for sounding classy without going overboard.

But as Jackson_H stated in the Editior's Opinion box, that when you compare this form to Cell's other forms (Imperfect & Perfect), Semi-Perfect has the weakest performances in terms of both voice & acting, easily.

Dale Wilson is the best at Cell. Dameon and Travis sound like an obese man impression.

I like Dale Wilson the most, even though this is my least favourite incarnation of Cell, he's the only one who doesn't seem like he's trying to sound fat.

Once again, Dameon Clarke beats out all the competition. Though Travis is at a close second. I don't like Dale Wilson's Cell at all.
