Recurring voice actors in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure

Quite a few seiyuus have the privilege of having voiced different important roles in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure over the years, and some of their contributions even go back as far as the 1992-1993 Drama CD series.

- Akio Otsuka (Solid Snake, Solidus Snake and Big Boss from Metal Gear Solid) played Mohammed Avdol in the Drama CD series (1992-1993). He returned to play Wamuu in the Battle Tendency anime (2012) and All-Star Battle (2013-2014).
