So uh... I'm pretty sure I figured out the weird old man Zhou Yu voice who took over after Michael Gough.

It's uh... Michael Gough.

I may have mentioned Karnak before, but comparing them again these voices are closer than I originally thought. Karnak is not credited in MUA1, but Michael Gough is in the game and I can't find any other actor there who reasonably could've done Karnak and also been in the Warriors games.

One more thing, it's about WO Pang De.

Gotcha, James Babson.

The Michael Gough thing brought me down a different train of thought. I think that DW4 Jiang Wei is just Jeremy Kent Jackson. He was active long enough, this page says he was in MGS2. It sounds like the same kind of voice he did for Jiang Wei later. And this would've been early in his career which explains why 4 Jiang Wei sounds kinda amateurish.

Picture this scenario. Jeremy Kent Jackson plays Jiang Wei in 4. Some kind of scheduling issue or what have you gets him replaced by Richard Cansino in 4 Empires and then Joshua Seth in 5. Then WO comes around. Joshua Seth is now gone from VO so they bring back the DW4 voice because it saves time instead of having to cast someone new. Something similar happened to Yoshihiro Shimazu who had one voice in WO1, another voice in WO2 and then the WO1 voice came back for SW3.

For the record I contacted James Babson about Pang De. He said he did it, but wasn't 100% clear on when he played Pang De. (IE just WO or WO and DW5.)

I also tried contacting Eddie Frierson about being in the series. No response there. FWIW I am convinced he was Xiahou Yuan now.

5XL/WO Lu Meng is Eddie Frierson. His own speaking voice is almost identical. I'm also fairly certain he was 6 Lu Meng since he stuck around as Xiahou Yuan in that game. When Travis left the series both of his roles went to the same actor so I guess the same thing happened here.

The IMDB page for DW2 does have credited characters for the VAs.. but I really can’t trust it. Feel free to use it as reference though, just take it with a grain of salt.

Avi Landau (IMDB)
Bill Sullivan
Dean Harrington (demos)
Dennis Falt
Dennis Gunn (site)
Derrick Holmes (imdb)
Douglas Kirkpatrick (voice demos)
Eric Jacobsen (@1:39 & @3:30 for voice ref)
Jeff Manning (demos)
Jonathan Hammond (well respected actor but I can’t exactly find anything of his work)
Lynn Harris (credited as Diaochan and Sun Shangxiang)
Michale Coleman (imdb)
Paul Lucas
Paul Drisdria (imdb)
Richard Grosse
Robert Belgrade (his website credits him only doing Cao Cao)
Lonnie Hirsch (site/songs)
Tim Knowles (IMDB)
William Ross (imdb, late 70’s during recording)

Let’s.. well, try, shall we?

Wu - https://youtu.be/vTJAmBFvF5Q (characters will be role called in order)

Zhou Yu - This miiiight be Jeff Manning.

Lu Xun -

Taishi Ci - Richard Grosse

(Skipping Sun Shangxian)

Sun Jian -

Sun Quan -

Lu Meng -

Gan Ning -
Mega bump. I have never played any Dynasty Warrior games. I have however watched a few cutscenes on YouTube as research for something else, and I can definitely say that the character in this video is most likely William Ross: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=GVwZVu...D&index=2&t=0s

Even going back to the 60’s Ross often cast himself in both major and minor roles. In his dub of Swan Lake for instance, he was not credited but did do a minor character who had only 3 lines. I also put together a video reel of some of his roles here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=yqzZuF8yoIQ

For reference, he is properly credited in: “Aladdin”, “My Youth in Arcadia”, “Dagger of Kamui” and “Chase The Express”.


EDIT 9/12:
Another voice I recognise is Avi Landau. Being a non-fan I can’t name characters, but he is probably the guy in this cutscene from 0:00 - 0:13: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zQYeCE...D&index=3&t=0s

Landau was also properly credited as the protagonist in Chase The Express, also dubbed by William Ross and co. (Landau’s dialogue starts at 3:43): https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dhfTJWfTGOo

The other guy in that Dynasty Warriors 2 cutscene sounds like Dean Harrington’s voice of the antagonist from Chase The Express as well.
