One of the most veteran seiyu of all time. Koji Totani was the go-to guy for "tough" characters, be they badasses or not. His roles could sometimes overlap into Large Ham territory as well. He usually voiced villains, and could coarsen his voice if necessary.
Unfortunately he died of acute heart failure in 2006. His last role was that of a minor character in a Naruto special.
Notable roles from Koji Totani:
- Revolver Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2 Sons of Liberty (succeeded in Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns of the Patriots by Banjo Ginga aka Liquid Snake, whom the character's personality had been self-changed into, and outright replaced by Ikuya Sawaki for the Bande Dessinee DVD)
- Jagi in Fist of the North Star
- Leon in Dead or Alive 2, 3, and 4
- Capricorn Shura in Saint Seiya. Succeded by Takeshi Kusao.
