Dragon Ball Super narrator and dub legend Rubén Moya has died

Moya provided the Latin dub voice for He-Man, Dragon Ball Super's narrator, and many more.

Rubén Moya, the legendary Mexican voice actor well known for providing the Latin dub voice for He-Man in He-Man & The Masters Of The Universe, and the narrator in Dragon Ball Super, has died. He was 62 years old.

Zyri reports that the actor had confirmed he was facing a “health problem” just five months ago on social media. He said at the time: “Friends, I tell everyone to take care of themselves, this health problem came to change us, but I ask colleagues not to let your guard down, take great care of your work tool, your voice.”

Moya’s death was confirmed on Instagram in a post by Mexico’s National Association of Interpreters (ANDI). It wrote (translated via Google): “The National Association of Interpreters announces the sensitive death of the interpreter partner Rubén Moya. Actor with extensive experience in the world of professional dubbing. We send our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends on behalf of the ANDI Board of Directors and Surveillance Committee.”

Dragon Ball Super’s animation studio, Toei Animation, released its own statement on Twitter to pay tribute to Moya: “We deeply regret the death of the dubbing actor Rubén Moya, who lent his incredible voice in the narration of Dragon Ball Super,” it wrote (translated via Google).

According to ComicBook, Moya’s acting career spanned forty years. In that time, he voiced characters in numerous cartoons, anime and movies, including Attack on Titan, Demon Slayer, One Piece and even Toy Story 2.

On Twitter, fellow actors and fans of Moya’s work have been paying tribute: “Sad news, the death of Rubén Moya has been confirmed. Dubbing actor with a great career. Our generation will always remember him as the voice of He-Man. Rest in peace,” @80s_y_90s wrote (translated via Google). “One of the most emblematic voices in the world of dubbing has gone out. Rest in peace the GREAT Rubén Moya,” voice actor Eduardo Garza tweeted (translated via Google).
