Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Seto Kaiba with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Yu-Gi-Oh!

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.

Eric Stuart nailed Kaiba in the first season! The man's whispery and calm voice that he did there was pretty much perfect, and I recall not liking the more.....shouty voice that he did after that anywhere near as much. Although I still thought he was good in the role regardless!

Christian J. Lee is okay all things considered. But not really how I'd imagine a man like Kaiba sounding.

A shame Eric's performance got more and more forced as the show went along. His acting got kinda stilted too.

Nevertheless, he was PERFECT in the first two seasons, and I'm getting the feeling he'll be just as good in the new movie.

Eric Stuart makes Kaiba seem the most like an antihero of the two (which is Kaiba's character): you hate Kaiba's guts when he's being a jerk when Eric voices him, but you're also able to sympathize for the character when he's concerned over his little brother and genuinely being less selfish than he often is.

Christian J. Lee does a decent job, but he often sounds too much like a thug for association with the character and doesn't sound much like Kaiba at all.

While I'm not into Yu-Gi-Oh! anymore, I will say this: Eric IS Kaiba.

Eric Stuart is better. He is also versitile and can do different accents than only the one.

1. Eric Stuart: Stuart suits Kaiba's malevolent nature, and his voice is very fitting for every scene.
2. Christian J. Lee: YOIKES! What is going on here, it's a stereotypical thug/bully voice. Not fitting.

Also, I'd really like to hear him say Screw the rules someday.

Eric Stuart IS awesome as Seto Kaiba. It's amazing just how darker and gruffer Eric sounds in this role, despite it not being too far off from his Brock or Ghourry I never feel like I'm hearing either of those two, I'm hearing Kaiba which is a great thing, this is how differentiating your voices and characters works perfectly. He sounds charismatic and cunning but is also able to make him (mostly) likeable and sympathetic at the same time.

Christian J Lee is one of the better Odex voices, though he lacks the charisma Eric has in the role to me he just sounds like a deep voice thug and not a young adult billionaire egotist.

In the end Eric Stuart screws the rules and makes Kaiba epic, and for that he's got my vote.

Eric Stuart fits the character more: Christian J Lee sounds like a typical thug.

Eric Stuart, but he sounds more like he's channeling Steven Blum than his Brock voice to me as Seto Kaiba.

Christian J Lee is okay, but a bit rough.

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.

I like neither. Martin Billany FTW!

@JSD Whatever. I'm not a big fan of anime based on card games. I just LOVE the abridged series.
said at 6:39 PM on Thu May 9 2013
@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.
