@Abdullab That's nice to hear. Hope he feels better soon.

@Abdullab I thought it sounded like him. Good to see confirmation. His voice sounds a little weaker than before, but it's still a very good performance.

@Abdullab Glad to see Ayres is somewhat better so he can return. Hope he gets even more better in terms of health but we'll see how that goes.

I've noticed in the new DLC Ol' Rosey sounds different. He sounds more like Black's voice in the Super dub with a bit of added gruffness. No accent either. Weird.

@Nightmare Crusher And it turns out he's occasionally fake British again, but only sometimes. I don't think the developers told them what lines were supposed to be for base Black and which were for Rose. Strange considering that I don't think base Black has any new dialogue.

Well according to this video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeGtKlFlHiM&t=10s ) I pretty much hit the nail on the head with Patrick Seitz voicing Jiren.

@Zabel Are you Sure? Sounds like
Travis Willingham.
said at 10:58 PM on Mon Feb 26 2018
@Madara Senpai Absolutely sure, I'm pretty good at distinguishing voices and that is definitely Seitz. Plus Patrick Seitz is probably the more realistic choice in terms of casting since Travis Willingham rarely does any voicework with FUNimation anymore aside from Ace in One Piece.
said at 7:46 AM on Tue Feb 27 2018
@Madara Senpai https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8peRrwZaTcU in this video you can definitely tell it's Patrick Seitz. That yelling is distinctly his.

Jiren is coming huh I`m interested in his dub voice
said at 4:42 AM on Thu Feb 1 2018
@Abdullab I'd say the most likely candidates are Patrick Seitz or Andrew Love, but we'll have to wait til the end of February to find out (Unless it's a situation like Hit where it's only a stand-in casting).

@Zabel No I beleive aaron was sabat`s choice but given the reception they changed it to Mercer

Not that it's a bad thing. XD

@AleVesper yeh personally Jiren should have been in DBFighterz, I guess XV2 pulled that card to keep on getting players

Can someone explian to me why Chris Sabat got back most of the roles he gave up?

I don't get Zarbon and Burter are back with Sabat when there current actors voice other characters.
said at 10:24 AM on Thu Aug 10 2017
I posted this farther down: "I met Chris at a con recently and he told me that it actually wasn't really his decision to return to these roles. Apparently, FUNi got enough complaints about some of the Kai cast, so they wanted to make the game casts more of a return to Z.

@GreenGoblin75 It's a shame that it happened. The old dubs influence is that big, it gave Sabat his former roles back. Too bad they don't sound all that good in my opinion. The Ginyu force members were always his weakest performances.

After playing the the recent DLC and listening to Schemmel as SSJ Rose Goku Black, I have to wonder why he gave him an accent? I can understand him sounding snooty & condescending, but it sounds rather odd. Still it's better than the really gruff Batman voice he gave Goku Black before.

As for Zamasu, I'm somewhat disappointed. I expected something better. It might get better later on but as far as my first impressions of Zamasu's English voice, I find it underwhelming
said at 8:16 AM on Tue Apr 25 2017
@Shaun Ince wow they gave no credit additions for zamasu guess we have to wait a bit more.

schemmel propably changed it becuase of the inital reception of goku black i guess and i cant blame anyone for finding zamasu underwhelming considering miki gave the character his best performance to date
said at 7:10 AM on Wed Apr 26 2017
@Shaun Ince Okay I'm shaking on who's voicing Zamasu! At first it was on wikipedia that it's Matthew Mercer, but now all of a sudden it's DB Evolution Piccolo 'James Marsters'.

It wasn't firmly confirmed that it is Matthew, but there aren't any hard solid evidence that it's James either.


Who does this guy sound like to you?
said at 7:48 AM on Wed Apr 26 2017
@itsmedeadpool I don't recognise it, probably someone from the Texas scene for sure though, maybe someone new?

Absolutely not Matthew Mercer or James Marsters though. Perhaps Chris Sabat will announce it on his twitter eventually.
said at 8:06 AM on Wed Apr 26 2017
@Stelman257 I don't no. It sounds like it can be both. I may sound biased, but i hope it is Matthew
said at 9:51 AM on Wed Apr 26 2017
I think one thing to note here is that all the other voices were confirmed when the DLC came out. Lack of credits for major characters is common for non-union dubs. Now, confirmation bias is something to be wary of here, but...a number of non-union dubs I know credit actors, & leave out union actors. Marc Worden in Bleach, as an example.

100% of the actors in FUNi's DB dubs have not been union-only SAG-AFTRA actors, (they had Peter Mayhew, who IIRC is a member of a UK union?) & they've all been credited - although there is the case of Dameon Clarke, who used a pseudonym for Kai, but worked on Borderlands 2 & pre-Sequel, as well as a number of non-union NGP dubs in LA, & was credited properly on several of these projects.

Normally, I dont think anyone would suspect any actor with the profile of someone like James Marsters to be on this dub (or 99% of dubs, for that matter). It's only remotely an idea because of Tweets between Sabat & Marsters...in itself a rather unusual occurrence. When topped off with the lack of credits being *solely* to Zamasu, & Marsters having no real history of non-union works, as well as Zamasu's audio's close resemblance to Marsters's Lex Luthor, I cant really help but assume it is him.

@itsmedeadpool "At first it was on wikipedia that it's Matthew Mercer, but now all of a sudden it's DB Evolution Piccolo 'James Marsters'."

Reason number one to never trust unsourced Wiki pages - literally anyone can edit them. In this case, someone Googled whoever fans were assuming it was at the moment, changing it to whatever the current assumption was.
said at 10:06 AM on Wed Apr 26 2017
@huzaifa_ahmed im just surprised the rumors of Marsters as Zamasu are sperading like wildfire.
said at 9:35 PM on Wed Apr 26 2017
@Abdullab They are, but then confirmation needs to be made by the 'real' actor as well as Christopher Sabat. Although what if his real English VA is a union actor and he isn't allowed to make the announcement? When Champa and Vados' DLC got released, Jason Leibrecht and Caitlin Glass didn't hesitate to make the announcement. Well that's obvious because they only had to worry about the NDA. As in Zamasu's English VA, there must be a catch.
said at 6:15 AM on Thu Apr 27 2017
@itsmedeadpool i guess it will be time for the reveal but at this point thanks to a hint by clifford chapin we know that zamasu is James Marsters

@Abdullab That doesn't say anything! Is there an eater egg in that tweet? Or is Clifford's tweets a reference to a character? I know the comments refer to James, but none are commented by Cliff or people who might have an idea.
said at 7:14 AM on Mon May 1 2017
@Abdullab Wait a minute... Oh the Asami reference. Seychelle Gabriel played Yue in the Last Airbender movie (which sucked big time), and James Marsters played Piccolo in DBEvolution. Seychelle voiced Asami in The Legend of Korra... Okay that looks like a valid reference, but maybe even he's teasing us. That being said, people predicted James way before that tweet, so maybe hes tickling us on purpose.

said at 6:54 AM on Fri Apr 21 2017
@huzaifa_ahmed One of the users brought it up that the fan made Wiki page for Dragonball had Mercer listed as Zamasu. That website was never credible in the slightest.

Then me & BioZero pondered the idea of Matthew Mercer being Zamasu via Twitter & now he's completely convinced at this point.

Thing is, that the people that tested out the new DLC can't tell you who the VA is until after it has been released. Also if it was Mercer, we would have seen an announcement in the same day if he was allowed to say he was.
said at 2:51 PM on Mon Apr 24 2017
@Shaun Ince Call it narcissistic, but I really think the site might have been influenced by our discussions over here. Before you laugh, consider: most people don't really follow VA's that well. This is a very reputable enthusiast site; it's often the first result when you search up VA's. It's pretty common for bigger, broader outlets to not credit smaller sources. In terms of Dragon Ball specficly, a lot of our knowledge on the Harmony Gold dub comes from Meri of ToT from her teenage years. No info of it was around on the Net back then, but Meri happened to have the VHS (IIRC) & posted some details on it. Later, larger sites posted info that was very consistent with Meri's site. FUNi also copied a LOT of their terms from fansites back in the day.

Again, I may be giving this (awesome) site too much credit, but I think it's totally possible they happened upon our discussions & just ran with it. Heck, just yesterday I read Mercer's Wiki page updated to include Zamasu - it's gone now as we've switched to talking about James Marsters instead. I think this hypothesis makes a bit of sense IMO.

said at 4:14 PM on Mon Apr 24 2017

Nah, I don't think so. Dragon Ball has a ton of fake VA info that's floated around due to wiki edits. Stuff like Daveigh Chase being Baby Piccolo, Brian Beacock and Dan Woren being Piano and Drum, or Troy Baker being King Cold in Kai (before Jason Douglas was announced for the role). Some fans just got too hasty and wanted to pass off their own personal speculation/dream cast as fact.
said at 8:16 PM on Thu Apr 20 2017
so in the stream for dlc pack 3 though the players talked alot i think bandai namco wanted them to keep so until april 25th but from what i can gather.

Bob Carter came back as Bojack glad to see him in more projects.

Matt Mercer may voice Zamasu.

Mercer may have replaced schemmel as goku black or schemmel greatly improved.

For parallel quests eric vale recorded more dialogue as trunks and i beleive the same for laura bailey as kid trunks that or it was alexis tipton

@Abdullab LA ey? The question is who. There are so many LA actors. My guess is it will be someone who has worked in Dallas beforehand. I may have said this many times before, but damn I hope it is Matthew Mercer because he just needs a Dragon Ball character to his name then he has been in every massive mainstream anime product there is to be in.

Naruto Shippuden: Yamato (succeeding Troy Baker) and Eight-Tails
Bleach: Shukuro Tsukishima
Attack on Titan: Levi Ackeman

@Kioea Reminds me of the anime "Speed Grapher" where Greg plays the loyal henchman to Chris's character, the main baddie. It is also implied that said henchman was in love with him too. XD
said at 9:51 AM on Sun Dec 25 2016
@Kioea There are some people that think that's too much of a creative liberty, as Freeza's VA played Frost in the main production. I take issue with Nozawa as all of the adult Son family as they are all very different people & they constantly interact with each other...but I could see Chris Ayres do Frost just fine, especially as Freeza probably wont return anytime soon.

I'm not sure why Sabat insists on casting himself as a large portion of characters. Other than the main Z fighters that he voices, most of his villian performances have gotten worse. The Ginyu force members that he voices seem to stick out the most. Also the people he brought in to replace his former roles also do those roles much better than Sabat in my personal opinion.

@CatsTuxedo Yeah, that is pretty obvious, but at the same time it still kinda irks me. I know back in FUNimation's early days they didn't have a huge pool of talent to pick from to voice these characters. Which was why Sabat was cast as so many characters when FUNimation decided to go "in house" and use talent from Texas. Nowadays they have alot more actors to choose from.

I dunno, I just feel it's overkill casting him as so many characters.
Polyester Funk
said at 12:26 AM on Fri Dec 23 2016
@Shaun Ince Since Sabat is the director he doesn't have to be paid extra if he takes on additional roles. The Kai voices for Jeice and Guru don't play anyone else in the series far as I know, so it might not have been worth it to get them back especially if those two aren't in the game much.

Though, I don't know why J. Michael Tatum wasn't Zarbon again since he's in the game already. Or why Vic Mignoga is Broly but not Burter. I know that Broly is hard on him, so perhaps he could only play one of them and no one else has been Broly that's the one he goes with.
said at 4:10 PM on Fri Dec 23 2016
@Shaun Ince I would think that Chris Sabat should cast Austin Tindle as Yamcha and Travis Wilingham as Reacoom in XenoVerse 3, and probably bring back Jason Liebrecht as Jheese, Vic Mignogna as Butta and J Michael Tatum as Zarbon.
said at 5:43 PM on Wed Jan 25 2017
@SteelEthlan That is a very solid casting decision right there. Yamcha has always had a relatively youthful-sounding voice, & Sabat was a simple place-holding random person when he got the role. Using Austin Tindle (or someone along those lines) with that sort of voice, would've been a very good idea starting with Kai. Also those recasts/reprisals are very good ideas as well.

@GreenGoblin75 Wow really? I guess nostalgia is more powerful than we thought. I know the whole deal as to why actors will get cast in multiple roles, it saves money, but there's issues with it as well.
One: A lot of Sabat's roles tend to bleed into each other & sound the same. This isn't limited to just him, but it happens when actors get cast in DC & Marvel shows too. Two: Some of Sabat's roles have aged poorly. And this is notable with the Ginyu Force performances most of all.

OK I take my previous comment about Schemmel being underwhelming back, the sound clips here show he's actually pretty good as Goku Black. He's not Nozawa level but he's close. As for the Hit voice, still not feeling it.

@Nightmare Crusher Dunno. Haven't seen him use Kaioken in DB Super or the Solar Flare(Tayoken). Likely, those were cut quotes from the game.

Yeah Hit's voice is pretty bad. Kazuhiro is just better in this role. Someone closer to Kazuhiro Yamaji vocal range would have pulled this off much better.

J.M.Tatum is another VA I think could have pulled it off.
said at 3:19 AM on Mon Oct 31 2016
@Nightmare Crusher I haven't heard his Japanese voice, however Hit's english voice wasn't flat-out horrible to me honestly. I mean I thought the voice itself seemed to fit Hit's appearance really well! but the actual acting itself was pretty bland.

But he'll probably sound better in the actual show I'd imagine! (Or I hope anyway...)

@huzaifa_ahmed Well having J M Tatum as Hit would have been a much better choice in my opinion. Guess we'll have to wait & see if Aaron Roberts improves in Super. If it doesn't I'm afraid I'll have to write it off as one of the voices from FUNi's dub that I don't like.
said at 2:00 PM on Fri Nov 25 2016
@Shaun Ince He'll smooth it out in Super as long as he'll make Kuroi Goku more regal-like, not unlike with Hitōzaru Goku / Super Saiyan 3 Goku.

Aaron Roberts as Hitto seems rather solid to me, he should improve it as well.

For me, I would like to have Austin Tindle as Yamcha and Travis Willingham as Reacoom (In XenoVerse 3)

Since Frostē and Cabba could be added in like weeks later, I can see that Aaron Dismuke and Ricco Fajardo would be for these perspective characters, because variety.

You know what I just thought of which voice actors that may do solid for Zamasu?

Scott Zenreich. He might fit with a autocratstic, calm yet harshly judgemental kind of guy.

I have never been a fan of Sabat playing 3 different *main* characters. Early days, it's understandable. FUNi was barely a company, & anime is hard to come by, so most companies are frugal. Chris was working for practically free, so I get why they had him do *everybody*.

Toriyama & the people who made this show, cast Piccolo, Yamcha, Vegeta, & even the Ginyu Force (I mean almost every major character), with entirely different actors - they are very different characters, & they had the money to do so.

FUNi/Saban/whoever cast the Ocean dub, did somewhat similar with their own casting, if not out of reference/reverence/respect of that practice, then at least common sense. Even if they misunderstood the characters thanks to missing audio/translations, *at least* they had them sound like *different people*.

* Ted Cole's youthful-sounding voice also is reflective of Yamcha's character & the way that Toriyama cast him. Scott McNeil in the Pioneer movie dubs is a near-perfect English Piccolo. & Peter Kelamis did a great emulation of Nozawa's performance.

I wouldnt mind (in Kai) FUNi using, say, Rick Robertson or Bob Carter, or other guys with naturally big voices, to do random bit parts the way that Daisuke Gori or Scott McNeil did...

but *3 main characters*, plus several similar villains? Not sure what happened here, especially when you consider they recast several characters in Kai.

Overall, yes, the script is far, far better, but *not* discontinuing their historic "Sabat fills in half the main cast" at this point, when DB has made FUNi several hundreds of millions of dollars? Really?!
said at 9:14 PM on Mon Nov 7 2016
@huzaifa_ahmed I'm pretty sure Toriyama never cast a single actor in his life.
said at 10:18 AM on Tue Nov 8 2016
@ninjinister No, Toriyama did not cast the actors of Dragon Ball specifically, but it is not an uncommon practice for a trans-medium creator of an adapted property to have input on an adaptation of their work - casting included. Heck, the main Straw Hat pirates in the FUNi dub were cast by Oda himself.

Here's an interview from Masako Nozawa that touched on her personal experience of this:

*Did you audition for the role of Goku?*

"I did. A lot of actors recorded their performance of Goku onto a tape, and then the staff would listen to it and choose from that. Normally, the tape would have “Masako Nozawa, Son Goku” recorded before the performance, but I hear that Akira Toriyama-sensei had said, “Doing it that way, I’ll be distracted by the names,” so he listened to a tape that had the parts with the actors’ names cut out. Doing it that way, Sensei heard my voice, and chose me, with “Goku’s voice can be no one else’s!!”, or something like that…. I heard that story from the staff much later, and I was incredibly happy. And after that, when I met Toriyama-sensei, I heard him say, “Your voice reverberates in my head for Goku’s lines, Nozawa-san,” and I was even happier. (laughs)"

As for the perforamances is this particular game, it's pretty consistent for the most part. The main cast is good and I like the edition of more Time Patroller voices especially since they now have the main 3 Team Four Star members in a Dragonball game.

As for Hit & Goku Black's voices they're somewhat underwhelming in this game. Hit doesn't sound as deep or regal compared to his Japanese voice. I feel Matthew Mercer or another voice actor in FUNi's talent pool could have pulled it off better.

Sean Schemmel's Goku Black sounds like Batman. I know it's meant to be a variation of their SSJ4 voices in both languages, but it needs to sound smoother.

Hopefully when the FUNimation dub for Super comes out, they've improved by then.

@Dee15gon Yup all the way back in 2012. That being said, I prefer Sean's Batman over Christian Bale.

I Don't mind Chris Sabat as Zarbon or certain others Ginyu characters but I feel JMT and Jason L could've reprise their roles there. Not too sure how busy the schedule must've been.

Really? They got Sabat back as Zarbon? I can tolerate him as most of the characters he's known for voicing, but his Zarbon definitely isn't my preferred voice for Zarbon. Even though J.Michael.Tatum is in the game as Mira, he's a much better voice for Zarbon.

@Shaun Ince I think it's Burter that bothers me more. Chris Sabat has gotten really flat sounding with him.

@Shaun Ince I'm not sure why he reprised Burter too, even though Vic Mignogna is still Broly.

@BioZero216 In the case of Xenoverse, they basically combine a few memebers from Kai's dub & mox them in with some of the original casts from their earlier in house dubs. I have a similar issue with Meredith McCoy voicing 18 to some extent. She still sounds like she has a lack of emotion when voicing 18

@Shaun Ince I feel just as disappointed as when Chris reprises his roles as Jheese and i think Jason does his take a whole lot better.

@Shaun Ince I love 18's Voice, Its not meant to be that cutesy or emotional that much.
Mostly she has emotion more for her family side especially her daughter marron.
But In combat Shes a Composed badass especially if your referring to 18 from the future timeline who is more darker then Hell Yeah!

@Saitama4President "It's not not meant to be cutesy or emotional that much"

That's true to an extent but Meridith sounds like she's phoning it in most of the time. Not just this game, but in general.

@Shaun Ince - I agree with you, Meredith should not have returned to do the voice of 18, I am very sad to play this game and can not hear the voice of Colleen in Android 18.

Wait why does the game's credits say that Gotenks is voiced by Kara Edwards and Alexis Tipton? Isn't it usually Kara (Goten) and Laura Bailey (Kid Trunks) who voices the fusion boy wonder?
said at 5:11 AM on Fri Oct 28 2016

Haven't played the game myself and so far there seems to be a lack of Gotenks footage (even with annoying commentary) but my guess is it's a credit error which Okratron/Bamco have done a few times before.

Think this happened first Xenoverse game too. Maybe originally Tipton was going to fill in and did record, but Bailey then was available and her lines made the final cut but Tipton was still accidentally credited; kind of a reverse situation with season 1 of Black Butler where Young Queen Victoria was incorrectly listed in the credits to Laura instead of Alexis.

Long story short, if Bailey recorded Trunks then it's more than likely she recorded for Gotenks too and if Tipton did actually voice Gotenks I'd imagine she'd announce it or something.

Spoke too soon. Twitter convo w/ a fan confirms she did voice Gotenks. An actual ear test would be nice though to know for sure if her lines were actually used.

IIRC Raging Blast still used a lot of old recording of Dameon Clarke's Cell even though Travis Willingham was credited. Ultimate Tenkaichi was even worse with old recordings from former cast members when it was supposed to solely be the 'Kai' cast.

Oh hey, a taste of what's to come with Sean as Goku Black.
said at 5:00 PM on Fri Oct 28 2016
@Ghosty404 Yeah, Dragon Ball Super comes to mind eventually, because we all know that it'll make up for not-that-well-matched lip sync in games, cause i feel like they did it shortly compared to you-know-whats.
