Daisuke Gōri (郷里 大輔 Gōri Daisuke, February 8, 1952 – January 17, 2010) was a Japanese actor and voice actor from Kōtō, Tokyo. His real name, as well as his former stage name, was Yoshio Nagahori (長堀 芳夫 Nagahori Yoshio). He was affiliated with Aoni Production at the time of his death.

He was best known for his roles in the Dragon Ball series (as Mr. Satan and numerous other characters), Mobile Suit Gundam (as Dozle Zabi and Bask Om), Ninja Scroll (as Gemma Himuro), Kinnikuman (as Robin Mask), Patlabor (as Hiromi Yamazaki), Tekken (as Heihachi Mishima), and Soulcalibur (as Edge Master) - as well as his distinctive deep, booming voice.

On January 17, 2010 at approximately 3:00 P.M., Gōri was found lying on his stomach with blood dripping from his wrists in the middle of a street in Nakano, Tokyo by a passerby, who then notified the police. Authorities from the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department's Nakano station discovered a note (with the words "I'm sorry" (ごめんね, Gomenne) and "Thank you" (ありがとう, Arigatō) scrawled on it) addressed to his family.

According to fellow voice actors, Gōri was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus a few years prior to his death and his vision was affected by retinal detachment as a result of the disease. Thus, without being about to watch animations and match his voice to how characters spoke, Gōri was unable to voice act and continue his passion and love in life, resulting in his tragic suicide.
