David Wills and Chris Rager were both fantastic! I slightly prefer Chris Rager's voice because I think it sounds the most menacing. David's voice was definitely one of the standout voices in the 4Kids dub. There isn't much to go on Brian Zimmerman's clip unfortunately since I wasn't able to find more, but it sounds like it has potential.

I can't really take Wills seriously because of the cheesy lines xD

David Wills

Chris Rager sounds rather generic for me

@HienFan I know it's next to impossible to find more lines for Odex Arlong(I only saw the one with that 'Octy' line) but I actually prefer him over Chris

I always thought Dameon Clarke or Travis Willingham would make the perfect Arlong, using a variant of their Semi-Perfect Cell voices. But alas, it didn't happen, even in Funimation's dub. Looking at it again, I think Brain Zimmerman sounds closest to how I imagine Arlong based on that one line. I'm going to be the only one voting for him.

Chris Rager was great in the role, sounding both threatening and like a complete ******* (with an epic evil laugh too), but everyone can hear Mr. Satan in this voice and it's pretty distracting.

I really don't buy David Willis as Arlong. He sounds bored and almost monotonous, the voice is too light for the character, he's more annoying than menacing, and that stupid aquatic filter in his voice was completely unnecessary.

"I feel sorry for you humans being such inferior creatures! Maybe I should've just let Cell destroy you!"

@Damolisher Ironically, I always thought Arlong should have Cell's voice.

I think I prefer David Willis. His voice sounded a lot more interesting, menacing, and it REALLY makes you hate the character (as you're supposed to). Arlong is not just a villain, but also a cold douche bag, and I think David reflected this perfectly.

Chris Rager wasn't bad though. His voice certainly goes with Arlong's appearance, and he definitely sounds more monstrous, but it's nothing terribly memorable, and he basically just reuses his Hercule voice, and while it can make the character sound like a jerk as well, it doesn't fit as good as David's.

Brian just sounds like a monster (from the very brief clip).

@PurpleWarrior13 Disagreed about David Willis. He made me hate Arlong 'cause he sounded so annoying and wooden in the role. Chris at least sounded menacing and like a total douche.

I wish we could hear more of Brian's take. Though that one line sounds Cookie Monster-ish, he could very well be the best Arlong voice here.

@Galactic_Cyrus Both voices were effective, but I legitimately got a little angry every time David's Arlong spoke. The voice did get annoying, but I found it interesting. Don't get me wrong, the 4Kids version was bad, but it did have some great voices as well (Zoro, Nami, Chopper, Captain Morgan, Buggy, Arlong, Kaya, Kuro, Don Krieg, Nojiko, Crocodile, and Luffy wasn't terrible either), even if the FUNimation equivalents are mostly superior.

Rager's voice wasn't too interesting, but he did get the "angry douche" part of the character down great. I enjoy the performance. Just not as much as Willis'.

@PurpleWarrior13 Like I said before, I don't really fully agree with any Arlong voice here. I wish Dameon Clarke or Travis Willingham could have played the part.

I kinda wish there was a mix of David and Chris, Chris' deepness with Davi's effect and performance.
I guess I'll go with David who sounds more creepy

I actually really like David Willis' voice here, the echo just fits his monstrous appearance, it also kind of sounds like he's gargling which fits given how aquatic he looks. I also love the growl he adds, so even without the echo he still sounds really good.

Chris Rager sounds fittingly gruff, but I can't get Hercule/Mr. Satan out of my head when I hear his voice and as such I can't take his Arlong performance as seriously as I'm supposed to.

Brian Zimmerman is hard to judge given that he only says one word, but it doesn't sound too impressive...if a better clip surfaces I'll post again, to see if I change my mind on him or not, doesn't seem too promising though.

So with that said, I'm voting for David Willis, Chris Rager as a somewhat close second, and Brian Zimmerman last...for now at least.

Chris Rager is amazing especially in the scenes where Arlong shows his brutality and when he laughs

Chris Rager's evil Mr Satan voice best suited the character. David Willis (who was great as Buggy) was wooden and unthreatening in the role. I can't fully judge Zimmerman but he sounds like Cookie Monster in that clip.

@Galactic_Cyrus I also hate how 4Kids made him have an echo in his voice

I call for a tie between David and Chris. I always thought Kirk Thornton would have a good voice for Arlong, but that's probably because he voices another shark man...

So I added Brian Zimmerman. Unfortunately all he says is one word "Octy" (A.K.A. Hatchi/Hatchan).

If anyone finds a longer clip I'll make sure it'll be used instead of the current clip.
