"This index of mine glows with an awesome POWER! Its burning grip tells me to make a topic of you! Take this! My love, my anger, and all of my sorrow! SHINING TROPER SWORRRRRDDDD!!! GO! GO! GO!!!"Mark Gatha was once a Canadian voice actor working for The Ocean Group's Blue Water Studios subsidiary who did quite an amount of voice acting for anime and video games in the late 90s and early-to-mid 2000s. He was best known in anime as the Hot-Blooded, hammy Domon Kasshu and anything else can be melted to liquid with him around.Sadly, Mr. Gatha has retired from his relatively short tenure of voice acting; according to fellow VA Lucas Gilbertson, he now works as a medical doctor. Surely, the King of Hearts is putting his talents to good use in helping his patients.

- Cactus in Betterman
- Domon Kasshu in Mobile Fighter G Gundam (also reprised the role in Gundam Battle Assault 2 and Battle Assault 3 featuring Gundam Seed)

- Reports of My Death Were Greatly Exaggerated: In December 2016, he was rumored to have passed away based on a tweet by fellow VA Lucas Gilbertson (Who voiced Zero in the Mega Man X titles Gatha was involved in). Gilbertson later explained that the tweet was based on a joke that got taken way out of context and has since apologized for it.
