Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Tsunade with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Naruto

Tsunade is the Fifth Hokage of the Hidden Leaf Village. Her grandfather was the First Hokage and granduncle was the Second Hokage. She is a former student of the Third Hokage and is one of the legendary Sannin along with Jiraiya and Orochimaru.

Tsunade is an expert in medical ninjustsu and has been named by many to be the world's strongest and most beautiful kunoichi. Although she is actually very old (often called Grandma by Naruto) she maintains a young appearance from constant Transformation Techniques.

In the English dub version of the Naruto and Naruto: Shippuden anime series as well as the anime films, Tsunade is voiced by Debi Mai West. For several video games Tsunade is voiced by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn.

Debi Mae West is iconic in the role IMO. She does a fantastic job with it, and she gives her a very distinctive sound too.

To be fair though, I don't think that's the best clip of Mary Elizabeth McGlynn for comparison. She sounds a bit better in other parts of the game, but honestly I don't think anyone sounded as good in the games as they do in the show.

Debi is far more distinct, but Mary still gets the job done.

I'm voting Debi because she is the voice of Tsunade here on out for me. Mary's decent, but her voice suited better for Kurenai than for Tsunade herself.

No one can match Debi Mae West as Tsunade. Her voice IS Tsunade!

Debi Mae West IS the character. McGlynn is doing a decent impression, but it's clearly not the same.

I really like Debi Mae's voice a lot, but the clip of Mary was hilarious.

Yeah, Debi Mae West is the winner here. Mary's voice sounds too soft for Tsunade's personality.

@VocalChameleon Yeah, but they both have the sultry quality down.

@Aquafox84 I'm not denying that. Mary is a great substitute, but I still prefer Debi as Tsunade.
