Kōhei Miyauchi (宮内 幸平 Miyauchi Kōhei) (born Takayuki Miyauchi (宮内 孝幸 Miyauchi Takayuki) in Kagoshima, Japan) was a Japanese actor and voice actor, who was the voice actor for Master Roshi from the beginning of Dragon Ball to episode 260 of Dragon Ball Z.

Miyauchi's final voice acting session was for episode 260 of Dragon Ball Z, which he recorded only three months before his death. The episode aired on March 15, 1995. In his final line, he yells out "Kuririn!", and is turned into a bar of chocolate by Super Buu shortly afterwards.

On June 2, 1995, at the Nihon University Itabashi Hospital in Tokyo, Japan, Miyauchi died on his hospital bed, after suffering from abdominal varices. He was 65 years old.

He was also the voice actor of Master Roshi in many video games including Dragon Ball Z: Idainaru Son Goku Densetsu, Dragon Ball Z: Atsumare! Gokū Wārudo. The last time he was credited was in Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22.[1]
