Franchise: Lupin the 3rd

Goemon Ishikawa XIII is the thirteenth generation of the historical samurai of the same name.

He is a martial arts master and has displayed near superhuman abilities such as slicing bullets in half before they make contact and splitting a bolt of lightning. With his sword Zantetsuken he is nearly invincible in a fight.

Goemon is usually a quiet person and participates in Lupin's capers less frequently than Jigen and Fujiko. He does not take another' life unless challenged to a duel. He often meditates and trains to improve himself and eliminate any weaknesses.

Goemon Ishikawa XIII was first voiced in an English dub for the JAL version of The Secret of Mamo. This is also known as the Toho or HK version. There are no official credits for this dub so the voice actor is unknown.

Goemon was voiced by Steve Kramer in 2/3 Streamline Lupin III projects. Steve Kramer voiced Goemon in the original English dub of The Castle of Cagliostro and 2 episodes of the Part II TV Series. Streamline released these 2 episodes in 2 individuals releases called Tales of the Wolf: Volume 1 and Tales of the Wolf: Volume 2. It was also re-released as Lupin III: Greatest Capers.

AnimEigo's English dub of The Fuma Conspiracy had Goemon voiced by Mark Franklin. This was later re-released by Discotek Media.

In Streamline's English dub for The Secret of Mamo Goemon was not voiced by Steve Kramer but by Kirk Thornton.

For the MangaUK English dubs of Lupin III: Bye Bye, Lady Liberty and Lupin III: The Secret of Mamo, Goemon is voiced by Garrick Hagon.

Manga Entertainment created their own English dub for The Castle of Cagliostro and in this version Goemon is voiced by Michael Gregory.

Geneon Entertainment (previously known as Pioneer Entertainment) created English dubs for the TV Series Part II (79 out of 155 episodes) and a brand new English dub for The Secret of Mamo. In the Geneon dubs Goemon is voiced by Lex Lang.

Funimation Entertainment licensed several Lupin III TV Specials and Movies, and in these English dubs Goemon is voiced by Mike McFarland. McFarland reprises the role in Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine.
