Goku and Vegeta’s English Voice Actors Will Duke It Out in Dragon Ball FighterZ

Posted on January 10, 2018

When the two rivals go at it at each other in the Dragon Ball anime, it is certainly a time of excitement for fans. Now, in reality, the same match-up will ensure, but with the English dub voice actors of the Saiyan warriors – Sean Schemmel (voice of Goku) vs Chris Sabat (voice of Vegeta). Sabat public challenged Schemmel to a duel in Bandai Namco Entertainment and Arc System Works’ Dragon Ball FighterZ video game. Schemmel accepted! The battle will take place in Santa Ana, CA at the eSports Arena on January 25. The event will be live streamed on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch.

We expect (it hasn’t been confirmed) both will take the form of the characters they play in the series. Sabat also plays Piccolo in Dragon Ball, so we expect him to select Super Saiyan Vegeta, SSGSS Vegeta, and Piccolo as his team. In Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Schemmel voiced the base form of Goku Black, but not his Super Saiyan Rose form. The English dub of the Goku Black arc hasn’t been released yet. Still, we’re guessing he will take Super Saiyan Goku, SSGSS Goku, and Super Saiyan Rose Goku Black in this fight!

We hope to have more details as soon as they are announced. Below is the video announcing the fight by Funimation, the company that made the English dub of Dragon Ball world famous!

    i hope it’s streamed ! can’t wait.. and i hope they do the voices of goku and vegeta as well while playing

  • PerfectCell

    What? Sean voiced Goku Black, AND the Rose form in Xenoverse 2.

  • Realniggashit

    Ok so I wasn’t the only who read that right smh I remember he said he voiced both

  • Anthony_weaver86

    That sounds like fun

  • Ouroboros

    What a time to be alive!

  • Navok76

    after i heard goku black’s english voice in fighterz i started to like it voice more than japanese voice

  • KDG

    That accent change when he’s Super Saiyan Rosé is cringe-worthy.

  • Koibito888

    It’s only cringy because of the change, the dub voice in XV for base Black is cringy all on it own lol

  • KDG

    I actually like his base voice. He sounds like a sinister, dark Goku, which is appropriate since he’s Goku Black. Super Saiyan should not have brought about a whole accent change. Going the whole Zamasu accent route, it should have been present in his base form as well. Although personally I could have done without the accent altogether.

  • Koibito888

    Thats what I’m saying, I’m saying it was goofy that they had the base form so that it changed in the first place. The change was goofy. The accent though has to be the thing because it’s how Zamasu talks. It’s not Dark Goku it’s Zamasu in Goku’s body so the only logical option is Goku’s voice talking like Zamasu. Personally I think the voice sounds cool. But yeah thats what I was saying that the base should have been patched to have the same voice or something. I don’t see how they should have gone without the accent though.

    Base Black in XV just sounds like they went “uhh… yeah so he’s an evil Goku, sound evil” and Sean did it lol. It’s so generic and considering who is in Goku’s body even if Black didn’t talk like Zamasu he sure as hell shouldn’t be talking like that lol, that’s why I dislike it.

  • KDG

    It was definitely goofy to have Black’s whole accent switch up after transformation. I can’t help but wonder what their thought process was on that one. His voice changed slightly too, as Super Saiyan Rosé, and it shouldn’t have. Black’s base voice with Zamasu’s accent would have been perfect for both his base and Super Saiyan Rosé form. Because accent or not, he is in Goku’s body; it makes sense that he would have Goku’s voice either way you put it. I don’t think his Super Saiyan Rosé voice was a good enough middle ground.

  • Koibito888

    But… His voice IS Goku’s voice with an accent, he does have Goku’s voice, it’s sean schemmel doing Goku’s voice with an accent. So he does have Goku’s voice with Zamasu’s manner of speech.

  • KDG

    I get that Sean Schemmel does Black’s Super Saiyan Rosé voice, but to me he doesn’t really sound like Goku with an accent. He sounds different. I just don’t hear Goku’s voice in there.

  • Paul Watson

    I Think Sean Actually Chooses How To Do The Voice And They See If It Works For Them, lol.

  • Paul Watson

    Accents Make People Sound Different Than They Normally Would. Like If U Heard Someone With An American Accent, And Then With A British Accent, But Can’t See Them Saying The Words, U’d Probably Assume They Were 2 Different People.

  • KDG

    Not necessarily. I’ve watched plenty of movies – as I’m sure you probably have too – where actors have had to take on different accents. Their overall voice sounds the same, or is at least recognizable, with the exception of how they pronounce words. Black, as Super Saiyan Rosé, simply does not sound like Goku at all to me. Maybe it’s just me, but I just don’t hear it.

  • Koibito888

    Idk that’s odd to me because I personally only hear goku’s voice with an accent.

  • Koibito888

    Well the directors job is to instruct them. I’m sure Sean can give voices and they’ll be like ‘yes or no’ but in either case my point was it sounds like no one over here got what black was yet so they just went with an evil goku so he sounds all gruff which is so not what Zamasu would talk like lol

  • gogeta207

    Guys i have a problem when i try to play open beta of db fighterZ it wont let me it says *you do not have permission to access this contant * why is that

  • Nagatem, Triangle Sama SI God
