Troy Baker's Pain is his best role, I'd say. He sounded like a God and absolutely terrifying. He really needs to come back to anime.

So it's Troy Baker's distinct voice against Evil Kakashi? Yea, Troy wins this one hands down.

Both are good, but I obviously have to go with Troy on this one. Dave really does sound too much like Kakashi.

Dave didn't sound like Kakashi to me AT ALL. I didn't even know. He just sounded too young and raspy compared to Troy.

Well, I guess that's only compared to Troy. Otherwise I think that both of them were perfectly fit Pain. Just I'm used to Troy and visualize him as Troy most so I prefer Troy Baker. "Know Pain." lol

Definitely prefer Troy. Dave was all right but as other have said, he sounds too much like Kakashi.

"Why aren't Japanese or other foreign voice actors included in the Voice Compare?

I guess you could say we're primarily an English site, for the simple fact our team only speaks and understands English. Adding foreign languages to the voice compare would just promote a language war which we would rather avoid, not the mention the extra workload involved to add hundreds of different languages. We do however plan to add Japanese and other foreign language clips to the site such as character and TV Show pages, just not the voice compare."

True but that's all there kind of is for now. The English dub of Naruto Shippuden isn't that far along and the available DVDs only have so much and aren't that much further than Disney XD. When Pain is featured more in episodes with more dialogue I'll upload a better sound clip. :)
