Voice Compare » Yu-Gi-Oh! » Seto Kaiba

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Seto Kaiba with sound clips and images.
Seto Kaiba is the older brother of Mokuba Kaiba. He is the president of Kaibacorp and his goal is to be the Duel Monsters World Champion. Kaiba was once the champion but when he suffered his first loss ever to Yugi Muto he has been fighting to reclaim his title and glory ever since.

Kaiba is a very selfish person and condescending to everyone he meets except for Mokuba. He considers all duelists but Yugi to be inferior to him. Kaiba's favorite card is the Blue-Eyes White Dragon which he has three copies of. He also was a proud owner of the Egyptian God card Obelisk the Tormentor for a brief period of time. Kaiba has also proven himself to be a physically strong person and a man of genius intellect.

In the English dub version of the anime by 4Kids Entertainment, Seto Kaiba was voiced by Eric Stuart.

In a lesser known English dub by Odex Ltd Seto Kaiba was voiced by Christian J. Lee.

EDITOR'S OPINION

Both voices fit the character pretty well. Eric Stuart's voice is my favorite from this Voice Compare, but Christian J. Lee was also good and IMO his Seto Kaiba voice is one of the better Odex dub voices.

Eric Stuart really shined in this role. I'd say this is one of his best roles ever. "Ah, please, spare me all that bull about friendship will 'ya?"

Seriously, though, Eric Stuart really nailed this character. He wasn't Kenjiro Tsuda, but he certainly fit the part quite well. He could've toned down the ignorance a bit but other than that I'd say he was excellent in this role. He was able to capture Kaiba's sadness and anger very well, and I really felt sad for Seto at times. The scenes with Mokuba were also done very well.

Christian J. Lee is surprisingly very good. He sounds a lot like Martin Billany aka LK, actually. Regardless, his performance is rougher sounding and more forced (as is LK's, but that's just a parody he does for fun and for our entertainment).

Eric Stuart is the best actor for Seto Kaiba in the dub in my eyes.

Did you know that he was actually adopted?

@Mrguy22594
Yup, his story was pretty tragic. From a very early age, he had a very hard life. He was willing not to be adopted just so that Mokuba wouldn't be left alone when tons of parents were willing to adopt him. Gozaburo only adopted both him and his brother because Seto defeated him in a chess match.

@OldSchoolFTW And to Gozaburo when he beat him in a Children's Card game said "Screw the rules! I'm in love with Nurse Joy." I think Roger Craig Smith could for a decent voice for him given everything about him.

I see what you did there. lol.

Yes, though, Roger Craig Smith could do a decent voice for him. I'd say these two did a pretty good job, though, as is.

You do know LittleKuriboh's Kaiba is a copy of Eric Stuart's with a British accent mixed in occasionally that also lets Bakura slip out sometimes too? rofl.

@JSD Whatever. I'm not a big fan of anime based on card games. I just LOVE the abridged series.

I LOVE Yu-Gi-Oh abridged myself, but Martin takes inspiration from Eric Stuart. So I'm saying that you should also like him if you like LK's rendition! XD.

@JSD You're right. Stuart is pretty good, as is LittleKuriboh, considering he can almost perfectly mimic the 4Kids cast.

Eric Stuart was excellent as Kaiba in the first two dub seasons and the movie. Afterwards...not as much.

Christian Lee's good too; oddly enough, he sounds closer to Kaiba's Abridged Series counterpart.

I agree with Brian. Eric Stuart IS Kaiba. Lee sounds too nasally.

4 kids might have censored a lot, they were much better at choosing voice actors to play the characters.
