Hey, hey, hey, hey, HEY! WHO DECIDED THAT? WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK KYLE HEBERT IS?!
He is the champion of Justice, The defender of what is right!! THE GREAT SAIYAMAN!!!
Now take this! SHINKU... HADOUKEN!!!
Kyle Henry Hebertnote (born June 14, 1969) is a voice actor who originally did work for Funimation, which is in Texas. His most notable roles are Teen Gohan and the 2nd Narrator in Dragon Ball Z. Soon afterward he started working in California dubs. He's recognizable by his gruff and suave tone present in many of the characters he voices.
As stated above, he is the dub voice of Kamina in Gurren Lagann. Naturally, due to Kamina's Memetic Badass status, this just made him much more popular. He's present at many anime conventions and does a lot of Q&A sessions with his former FUNimation compatriots.
He's also an Internet star thanks to not only his role as Sosuke Aizen, but also due to his role as Wario in fellow voice actor Matthew Mercer's web series There Will Be Brawl. He also hosts his own podcast (yes, named after Hebert's baldness), along with Indie-Rock musician Otherworld Steve. The podcast is not only supported by another podcast (hosted by Canadian voice actor Trevor Devall), but also supports yet another podcast, hosted by MasakoX and other The Abridged Series creators.
Has a Twitter account and a YouTube account.
He is married to Christina Louise, an author whom goes by the pen name Ryter Rong.

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE LOOKED DOWN UPON, BY MY TROPES?:
- Badass Baritone: A lot of his roles usually fall into this range.
- Kamehamehadoken: Noted on the Hilarious in Hindsight page, he's the only one so far who have voiced two characters who use this move (Adult Gohan for the Kamehameha and Ryu for the Hadoken).
- Large Ham: Kamina being the best example.
- WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM?!
- Hot-Blooded: As part of the trope above.
- It's been noted that it's a shame he doesn't really care for live acting, given his incredibly expressive face.
- Man of a Thousand Voices: His range can cover manly men, conniving villains, wimpy teens, and everything in between.
- Playing Against Type: The calm and collected Aizen isn't one of his usual roles. Same goes for Edgeworth and Frederick.
- After awhile hearing his role being larger-than-life or gritty/manly guys, hearing him as a laid back Bishōnen like Ezreal may be a surprise (although he certainly HAS experience for such types (older Gohan))
- Promoted Fanboy: He acted in There Will Be Brawl as Wario. A few years later, he got to do voice acting for Super Smash Bros. when Ryu was added to the roster. A bit later, he would go on to voice Dribble and Dr. Crygor in WarioWare Gold, an actual Wario game.
- Star-Making Role: Two of them: the older Gohan in Dragon Ball Z, and the Largest Ham Kamina from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
Can you hear me, troper with the Three Strikes?
