1[[quoteright:250:]]²²Paul Dobson (born December 7, 1963 in UsefulNotes/{{London}}, England), of the brothers Dobson (himself, [[Creator/MichaelDobson Michael]], and [[Creator/BrianDobson Brian]]), is an accomplished Canadian voice actor, one of the many who work with Creator/TheOceanGroup and other studios based in UsefulNotes/{{Vancouver}}, British Columbia, UsefulNotes/{{Canada}}. Paul is frequently cast as a brilliantly cunning, evil villain, or a thuggish strong guy. He also plays cartoony characters that provide some sense of comic relief, usually a minion of some kind of relatively small size like Myoga on ''Manga/InuYasha'', or a perverted midget like Happosai of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', or mentor-type characters, such as Alastor of ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'' and Sensei Wu of ''WesternAnimation/{{Ninjago}}''.²²Arguably, Paul's most notable role as a villainous character would be Naraku from ''Manga/InuYasha'', with the manipulative Sideways from ''[[Anime/TransformersArmada Transformers: Armada]]'' and the vicious dark-hunter Nidhiki from ''WesternAnimation/{{BIONICLE}} 2: Legends of Metru Nui'' as close seconds. As the tough guy, he is recognized as the elder Enzo Matrix from ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'', and the unstoppable Juggernaut ([[MemeticMutation Bitch]]) from ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution''. His prominent comedic roles are Myoga from ''Manga/InuYasha'', and Howdy from ''Anime/{{Hamtaro}}'', as well as Happosai from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. He commonly acts alongside his brothers, such as during the hit Bionicle movies B2 and B3, in which he also played Toa Whenua (a strong-guy character) (and the above mentioned Nidhiki's partner Krekka is voiced by Michael Dobson), as well as during ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' and ''Manga/InuYasha''. He played Doctor Doom in ''WesternAnimation/FantasticFourWorldsGreatestHeroes'' as well as in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' (where he also voices Shuma-Gorath). He's also known for voicing Graham Aker in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' and Zarbon in the Ocean dub of ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. He voiced the main villain Moo in the overlooked anime, ''Anime/MonsterRancher'', secondary antagonist Chiros in ''WesternAnimation/KongTheAnimatedSeries'', and the E.O. Captain who serves as antagonist of the first two episodes of ''Manga/BlackLagoon''. He has played a number of roles in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}: VideoGame/DawnOfWar'': most notably, he is the primary voice actor of Captain Gabriel Angelos, and provided the first voice of Eliphas the Inheritor, as well as the voices of General Sturnn and Chaos Space Marines.²²----²!!Roles by Paul Dobson:²* Alastor in Season 1 of ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'' ([[TheOtherDarrin replaced]] by Creator/KentWilliams).²* Anubis in ''Anime/RoninWarriors'' (''[[CallingYourAttacks "QUAKE WITH FEEEEAR!!"]]'').²* [[ADogNamedDog Ape]] in ''WesternAnimation/GeorgeOfTheJungle2007''.²* The Avatar and Colonel Toros in ''WesternAnimation/ObanStarRacers''.²* Benkei in ''Literature/{{Kurozuka}}''.²* Billy Kane, Wolfgang Krauser, and Hauer in ''VideoGame/FatalFury'' anime specials and the movie.²* Chiros in ''WesternAnimation/KongTheAnimatedSeries''.²* Commander Ironhead in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''.²** Additional voices in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie2017''.²* Crazy Stunts (aka Micky Flannigan), Replicon, and Chronozoid in ''WesternAnimation/SkysurferStrikeForce''.²* [[TalkingToHimself Demitri Maximoff and Demitri's Servant]] in ''Anime/NightWarriorsDarkstalkersRevenge''.²* ComicBook/DoctorDoom in ''WesternAnimation/FantasticFourWorldsGreatestHeroes'' and ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3''.²** Mole Man in ''WesternAnimation/FantasticFourWorldsGreatestHeroes''.²** Shuma-Gorath in ''Marvel vs. Capcom 3''.²* Dr. Marronflower in ''LightNovel/{{Dokkoida}}''.²* Dr. Wily and [=MagicMan=] in ''Anime/MegaManNTWarrior''.²* Gilbert/Gigi the Great in ''Anime/PowerpuffGirlsZ'' (PlayingAgainstType as an extremely effeminate hairdresser...).²* [[EvilSoundsDeep D-Structs]] in ''WesternAnimation/DinoTrux''.²* Enzo Matrix in ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot''.²* E.O.
