Post Dragon Ball/Kojima Games connection
One thing I just found out, is that some of the voice actors who worked on Kojima Games in Japanese, also did the original Japanese dub of the Dragon Ball franchise.

Mami Koyama: Voiced Lunch in Dragon Ball and Metal Gear Mk. 2 in Snatcher

Hiromi Tsuru: Voiced Bulma in Dragon Ball and Naomi Hunter in Metal Gear Solid 1 & 4

Bin Shimada: Voiced Suguro, Sonpara, Broly, West Kaiou, Cell Jr. in Dragon Ball and Dave Forrest in Policenauts

Banjo Ginga: Voiced Bora in Dragon Ball and Liquid Snake in Metal Gear Solid

Daisuke Gōri: Voiced Umigame, Gyū-Maō, Colonel Yellow, Cymbal, Drum, Yaochun, Inoshikachō, Gora, Spectator, King Enma, Mister Satan, King Cold, Vinegar, Porunga in Dragon Ball until his death Scott Dolph in Metal Gear Solid 2, and Lt. Cunningham in Portable Ops.

I've heard that voice actors in Japan are often times live action actors as well. In the US we tend to stay away from having celebrities voicing anime and videogame characters (with a few exceptions - Kiefer Sutherland is in several anime that I have seen).

Kind of odd to think about what similar castings in Dragon Ball and MGS would be like in the English versions (doesn't seem like it would work out too well lol).

You also have Norio Wakamoto voicing Gene and Cell. Two characters from 'Perfect' projects.

This Dragon Ball has always been trending ever since, I don't what is in with it why it is so famous either in movie or in games.
