EDITOR'S OPINIONWell folks I thought I take a little brake from doing Voice Compares for Kiki's Delivery Service so I thought I do a little something for the Powerpuff Girls, namely Buttercup.
Buttercup is pretty much the "Tomboy" of the group and she is voiced by VA Elizabeth "E.G" Daily in the original series. E.G's Buttercup voice is similar to the voices she usually does for young boys but since Buttercup is quite the Tomboy it does work and work rather well. Anyways Buttercup has always been one of Elizabeth Daily's most renowned performances and quite frankly its not hard to see why.
In the English dub of the Powerpuff Girls Z anime she is voiced by Ocean Group VA Kelly Metzger and she is not that bad really. For better or for worse the English dub for PPGZ tried to be more like PPG and while its not a perfect impression of E.G Daily's Buttercup voice but its not bad. Kelly Metzger's Buttercup voice and performance are still rather suiting for Buttercup's tomboyish persona rather well.
Overall both are very good, I admit I still will give the edge towards Elizabeth Daily here but both are very good for the role here.
(Note: Oddly enough Tara "Bubbles" Strong voiced Buttercup in CN Punch Time Explosion but I was pleasantly surprised with her work here. Granted much like Grey's work as Blossom in this game Tara's work as Buttercup would probably fit the PPGZ version of Buttercup a bit more than the PPG version. But other than that Tara's work as Buttercup was pretty fitting for the PPG Tomboy here and is probably one of the better "Stand-in" performances in that game. I'm not sure if I would consider Tara to be better than Elisabeth but she is not a bad alternative choice for Buttercup here.)
