Christopher Sabat Addresses Complaining Fans About Vegeta Voice Change
Christopher Sabat is known as one of Dragon Ball Z’s finest voice actors; he has single handedly provided voices for numerous characters on the show. From characters like Omega Shenron and Kami, to notable characters like Piccolo and Yamcha; Chris Sabat has done a lot for the Dragon Ball universe. Mr. Sabat’s voice acting for his most notorious role as Vegeta has been coming under fire as of late and he has decided to address complaining fans.
I’ve heard of fans complaining about new and updated voices in Dragon Ball Z Kai as well as the upcoming English release of Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods. One complaint from fans that arises quite a bit is the minor change in Vegeta’s voice. One fan tweeted Chris Sabat the following after one of the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods clip released.
@Chris24_Sabat what happend to your Vegeta voice! It doesn’t sound the same for battle of the gods not even close to as good 🙁

Mr. Sabat responded with class of course.
This is more than likely not the first time Chris Sabat has had to deal with complaints about Vegeta’s newish voice so he felt the need to address everyone with the following.
To people who think I changed my Vegeta voice, remember it was 15 years since DBZ was dubbed. Vegeta’s voice has matured…literally.

There you have it folks! If you still have a problem with the way Chris Sabat voices Vegeta; you should borrow Trunks’ time machine, go back 15 years, and bring Mr. Sabat to the present to replace himself. That’s the only way you’re going to get that classic Vegeta sound back!
