List of Space Battleship Yamato characters

List of Space Battleship Yamato characters

This is a list, with biographical details, of major characters appearing in the anime series "Space Battleship Yamato" and its American dub, "Star Blazers". Note that not all the American voice artists are known for the first two seasons (owing to their non-union status they were not credited in the show's closing titles), and a different group of actors provided voices in the third season.

Yamato Crew

Many of the family names of "Yamato" crewmembers were taken from famous samurai, some specifically from members of the Shinsengumi: Okita, Hajime, Hijikata, Yamanami, Yamazaki, and Tōdō. In many cases, characters only went by one name in Star Blazers (examples: Nova, Sandor, Dash, Orion). Full names were provided by Tim Eldred in the 1995 Star Blazers trade handbook.

First season

* Captain (Sergeant Webb Knox): the commander of a contingent of space marines stationed on Planet 11, rescued by the "Yamato" after a fierce Comet Empire attack. Uncouth and belligerent, he and his men refuse to respect the crew of their new home and frequently get into fights, frustrated at their reduced role as "passengers". However, on the surface of planet Telezart, inside Desler's flagship and within the Comet Empire's own space station, Saito and his men prove their worth in ground combat. Saito is the last surviving member of the team, and sacrifices himself to detonate explosives in the Comet Empire's power centre (though in "Star Blazers" it was indicated that he escaped). His Japanese name comes from real-life Shinsengumi captain Saito Hajime.
** Japanese voice artist: Isao Sasaki
** American voice artist: Chris Latta

*nihongo|Hyōgo Tōdō|藤堂兵吾|Tōdō Hyōgo (Corporal Kane): Second-in-Command of the Space Marines. He was likely killed inside the White Comet Gatlantis in the final battle.
** Japanese voice artist: Toshihiko Kojima

*nihongo|Jirō Tsurumi|鶴見二郎|Tsurumi Jirō: Cosmo Tiger 3rd Squadron commander. Tsurumi got little screen time. His fate is unknown, but he was likely killed in the final battle with the Comet Empire with the other Cosmo Tigers.
** Japanese voice artist: Shigeru Chiba

*nihongo|Yasuhiko Yamada|山田安彦|Yamada Yasuhiko (William Peale): Yamato's interrogator. He tortured Mazor in a futile attempt at extracting intelligence from him.
** Japanese voice artist: Rokuro Naya

* nihongo|Hyota Arakome|新米俵太|Arakome Hyōta (Neville Q. Royster): an extremely nerdy (and comically-drawn) scientist cadet, addressed by all but Kodai -- including his superior officer and "senpai" Sanada -- as "shinmai" (meaning "newbie", but also being a different reading of the "kanji" in his family name). Despite his clumsiness, he proves his worth as a scientist and engineer, and in one episode comes up with an idea to use the wave motion gun as propulsion to save the ship that even Sanada did not think of. However, in the final battle against the Comet Empire he is killed shortly after locating Gatlantis's power centre (not shown in "Star Blazers").
** Japanese voice artist: Yuji Mitsuya

"Yamato: The New Voyage"

* nihongo|Tasuke Tokugawa|徳川太助|Tokugawa Tasuke (Patrick J. Orion Jr.): son of the late Chief Tokugawa, he is a cadet training to follow in his father's footsteps. He later becomes Yamazaki's assistant engineer aboard the "Yamato".

** Japanese voice artist: Toshio Furukawa

* nihongo|Tetsu Kitano|北野哲|Kitano Tetsu: a trainee navigator, he is put in charge of ship's weapons during a battle simulation, but when he panics and fires too soon, he nearly destroys the fighter squadron. He is not seen again after "The New Voyage", although he does appear in the Playstation 2 games.
** Japanese voice artist: Makio Inoue

Be Forever, Yamato

* Captain nihongo|Keisuke Yamanami|山南敬助|Yamanami Keisuke: stand-in captain of the "Yamato", and a former colleague of Okita and Hijikata. His Japanese name comes from real-life samurai and co-founder of the Shinsengumi, Yamanami Keisuke.

** Japanese voice artist: Keiko Han

Third Season

* nihongo|Ryusuke Domon|土門竜介|Domon Ryūsuke (Jason Jetter) ("v.a." Hideyuki Tanaka): A new recruit assigned to the Kitchen. Originally resentful of his position, he quickly learns to accept it. A focal character in Series 3, he often becomes involved in missions outside of his kitchen duty.

* nihongo|Takeshi Ageha|揚羽武|Ageha Takeshi (Takeshi "Flash" Contrail) ("v.a." Toshio Furukawa): A new member of the Cosmo Tigers. His father did not support his decision to become a pilot, but allowed him to remain with the Yamato at his wife's insistence.

* nihongo|Akiko Todo|藤堂晶子|Tōdō Akiko (Wendy Singleton) ("v.a." Kazuko Sugiyama): Granddaughter of Heikuro Todo and works as his secretary. Has a mutual attraction with Aihara.

Allies of humanity

* nihongo|Starsha|スターシャ|Sutāsha: queen of the dying planet Iscandar, and one of its last survivors, Starsha reaches out to the endangered people of Earth in the first season, offering a device called Cosmo-Cleaner-D (Cosmo-DNA in "Star Blazers"), which would cleanse the planet of deadly radiation. She sends her sister Sasha to the Solar System bearing this message, together with plans for a faster-than-light space drive. However, when the "Yamato" arrives, she confesses that she had actually possessed the means to send the device to Earth, but had wanted to test humanity's worthiness to survive, an action she regrets. Though willing to help Earth, she chooses to remain on her homeworld and face its ultimate fate with dignity. She has also rescued and healed Mamoru Kodai, who chooses to remain with her. In "Yamato: The New Journey" she sends her husband and child (also named Sasha) away from Iscandar before detonating the planet's doomsday bomb in order to defeat the plans of the Black Nebula and prevent Desler from sacrificing himself. Her spirit appears to her daughter in "Be Forever, Yamato". She and Sasha are nearly identical in appearance to Yuki (albeit longer-haired), though this is a coincidence.

* nihongo|Sarsha|サーシャ|Sāsha (Astra): Starsha's identical sister, also of royal blood. Sasha travels to the Solar System to deliver Starsha's message to Earth, but her ship is shot down and crashlands on Mars. After leaving her escape pod she suffocates in the Martian atmosphere before being found by Kodai and Shima.

* nihongo|Teresa|テレサ|Teresa (Trelaina): a telepathic young woman living on the planet Telezart in a hovering palace, who has mastered anti-matter and whose prayers generate a powerful energy. She watched her world, an interstellar hub, degenerate into all-out war, but prayed so fervently that she destroyed all life forms. When the Comet Empire threatens our Galaxy, she sends messages to Earth attempting to warn them of the danger, bringing the "Yamato" to her world; during the Earth ship's journey she falls in love with Shima over radio. However, though she refuses to leave her world and become a part of Earth, her love for Shima overcomes her pacifism and she destroys Telezart in an attempt to slow down the Comet Empire. She survives in her spacecraft and travels to the Solar System, where she discovers Shima's corpse floating in space and resuscitates him using her own tears. With her last remaining power, she then destroys Zwordar's dreadnaught and saves Earth from destruction. What becomes of her after this is unclear. While some fans believe Teresa sacrificed her life to destroy Zwordar, others believe she is still alive somewhere in the universe, given that she easily survived the destruction of Telezart. In the alternate version of the story told in the movie "Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato", Teresa plays a similar role, but she is composed entirely of anti-matter (and naked), and does not fall in love with Shima. Moreover, at the end of the movie she does not destroy Zwordar's ship, but instead her spirit urges Kodai to do so using the "Yamato".

The Gamilons are a race of humanoids from the planet Gamilas in the Large Magellanic Cloud, 148,000 light years from Earth. They are biologically indistinguishable from humans aside from their blue skin (though owing to an animation error they were given pink skin for the first ten episodes of the original series). Many of those who appear in the series are named after high-ranking members of the Nazi party. We seldom see Gamilon civilians (it being a highly-militarised society), and the few female Gamilons who appear in the series are invariably concubines.

* nihongo|Leader (Lord) Desler|デスラー総統|Desurā Sōtō (Leader Desslok): leader of the militant people of the dying planet Gamilas, Desler intends to wipe out the human "barbarians" and migrate his people to Earth. Initially contemptuous of humanity and its struggles to survive, he comes to respect the "Yamato" as it surpasses endless trials on its journey to Iscandar. He even attempts to use his dying, volcanically-active planet as a weapon against the Earth ship, but the ensuing battle results in the near-total destruction of his civilisation, and he swears revenge. Apparently killed at the end of the first season when his own Desler cannon backfires and destroys his flagship, he re-emerges in the second season having been resuscitated by the advanced medicine of the Comet Empire. Emperor Zwordar grants him the chance to destroy the "Yamato", but ultimately he comes to realise that his desire for revenge has made him no better than the Comet Empire, who live solely for conquest; it is Yuki's attempt to protect a wounded Kodai that convinces him that humans are capable of the same love he feels for his people, and he withdraws from battle, aiming to rebuild his civilisation (which becomes known as the Galman Empire). Before departing off in the Comet Empire series, he shares an important detail about a potential weakness in the White Comet.

:Although initially an enemy to Earth, he informs Earth Defense Force of the dire situation planet Iscandar was in when he returned to Gamilus to find the Black Nebula Force mining for resources to fuel their warmachine. He later becomes an ally of the "Yamato" when Iscandar was plunged into warp and when the Black Nebula Force pursued Iscandar threatening Starsha after Gamilus exploded. Working together with the crew of Yamato, his bitterness lifted and he acclaimed his love for Starsha. Starsha however sacrifices herself and her planet to stop the giant Gobra sent to secure the planet's resources for war purposes. Because of her sacrifice, Desler had a renewed sensation of love and peace he had never realized was inside his heart. He departs at the end of the battle on a good term with Earth and Yamato.

:A couple of years after the destruction of Gamilus, Desler wanders the Milky Way Galaxy, and finds his ancestral home planet Galmania which is occupied by the Bolar Federation. He quickly amounts a counter-attack to free his people, and in doing so proclaims himself as the new Emperor who is set on ridding the galaxy of the cruel Bolars. However, because of his quick quest to secure the entire Milky Way Galaxy, his officers had become war-mongerers who would use planet destroying hyperion missiles to eliminate any enemy or resistance. One such missile had gone astray and entered into Earth's Sun causing accelerated nuclear fusion to the point that the Sun was to collapse in less than a year. Unaware of the situation his forces had caused to Earth, Yamato was sent to search for a new suitable planet for Mankind. The crew of Yamato was hit by Desler's Galman forces when they intervened a neighboring system called Birth when fighting broke there. Because of the intervention, Galman officers and generals made it a top priority to destroy or capture the ship. Yamato was literally captured inside a super hangar of the Galman Eastern Task Force fortress, and taken to be presented to Desler after losing many ships and men. Upon presentation, Desler blew up into a fury over his general's negligence to his orders to stay far from Earth's solar system, and apologized to the crew of Yamato. He then learned about how his own war machine was the reason Yamato was dispatched to search for a new home planet to emigrate to, and how his own forces delayed and caused much damage to the Sun. He offers to help Earth by dispatching his own fleet of scientists who could restore the proper nuclear fusion to the Sun. This however proves to be futile as the Sun worsens from their manipulation. Out of scientific ideas, he provides coordinates to a planet like Earth called Phantom. Phantom however was not a suitable planet, as it was a living organism able to project itself as a planet to protect Queen Mariposa from the Bolars. Upon Yamato's discovery of this fact, Queen Mariposa is escorted and protected by the crew of Yamato to her home planet Guardiana where she offers the hydro-cosmo-pen-cannon to correct the Sun's erratic nuclear fusion. Desler following Yamato learns of the Queen's homeplanet, and although he doesn't conquer the planet, he nevertheless adds planet Guardiana to his empire to sway the all people of the galaxy (Galman and Bolar) towards peace as her people's culture are pacifists and peacetalkers. Stability and peace is spread throughout the Milky Way Galaxy.

:It is however not until the Dinguilu people who try to conquer Earth using Aquarius to bring massive floods where Desler performs one last helping assistance for Earth and Yamato when the ship itself was converted into an H-bomb and could not fire at the enemy surrounding her. Apparently, Desler was away on a mission when a galaxy from a different dimension manifests and collides with the Milky Way Galaxy turning his imperial city into a graveyard. When he returned, he had found white roses left behind by the crew of Yamato. Wearing one of the white roses on his uniform, he informs the Yamato crew that he understood their dire situation and Earth, and eliminated the Dinguilu people who were about to open fire on the helpless bomb converted ship. In the last scene where Yamato ultimately self destructs to break a 10 trillion ton water column from hitting Earth, Desler is found atop his ship with tears around his eyes as he watches Yamato settle in an ocean in space.

:His Japanese name is believed to come from Nazi Germany's Adolf Hitler, and Desler's title nihongo|"Sōtō"| is the Japanese translation of "führer". Leiji Matsumoto has claimed this similarity is in fact a coincidence, and that Desler comes from "Death-Ra" (also written as デスラー in Japanese).

** American voice artist: Eddie Allen (seasons 1 & 2)

* Vice President nihongo|Hiss|副総統ヒス|Fukusousaitou Hisu/General nihongo|Hiss|ヒス将軍|Hisu Shougun (General Krypt): Desler's toadying right-hand man, Hiss tries his best to please his leader, apologizing for every embarrassing mistake and passing his anger on to his underlings. However, during the climactic battle on Gamilas he implores Desler to make peace with the humans, earning him a bullet in the chest (not shown in "Star Blazers", in its place is a reuse of dialogue footage between Desler and Hiss where Desslock now merely reprimands Krypt for engaging in defeatist talk). In the first ten episodes, Hiss has the title of Vice President (副総統). With episode eleven, his title changes to General (将軍). His Japanese name comes from Hitler's deputy Rudolf Hess.

* Commanders nihongo|Shultz|シュルツ|Shurutsu and nihongo|Gantz|ガンツ|Gantsu (Colonel Ganz and Major Bane): the leaders of the Gamilons' frontline base on Pluto, Shultz and Gantz are among the first to encounter the dangerous new Earth ship "Yamato". However, even armed with a powerful weapon, the Reflection Satellite Cannon (Reflex Gun in "Star Blazers"), the bumbling duo are unable to stop the Earth ship and are forced to abandon their base. Recognising that they can never return home in disgrace, Shultz orders the entire fleet to launch an all-out attack on the "Yamato", but they are destroyed; Shultz's command ship attempts a kamikaze run (though in "Star Blazers" this was toned down to an accidental near-collision) before being deflected into an asteroid.

** American voice artists: unknown

* General nihongo|Talan|タラン|Taran (General Talan / Sergeant Masterson): one of Desler's most loyal generals, Talan appears only twice in the first season; however, in the second season he has a more significant presence, as commander of the scattered remnants of the Gamilon empire. He is more level-headed than his leader and is able to convince Desler to abandon his flagship when all is lost. He is also an extremely skillful pilot, rescuing Desler from the Comet Empire's pursuing ships. He was mistakenly renamed "Sgt. Masterson" in season 3 of "Star Blazers".
** Japanese voice artist: Kōji Yada
** American voice artist: unknown

* General nihongo|Domel|ドメル将軍,|Domeru Shougun (General Lysis): a famed general with many victories under his belt, and a powerful physique to match his ego, Domel is put in charge of the campaign against Earth and offers to destroy the "Yamato" in his leader's name. However, despite using both outright force and psychological warfare, he too is defeated in battle time and again, culminating in a scheme to destroy the Earth ship on planet Balan which succeeds only in the destruction of the Gamilon base there. Offered one last battle for honour, he challenges the "Yamato" to meet him at the Rainbow Cluster; so meticulous is his planning that he very nearly succeeds, and it is only quick thinking (and luck) on the part of the "Yamato" crew that destroys his fleet. He then attaches his command ship to the underside of the "Yamato" and self-destructs in a vain attempt to complete his mission (though in "Star Blazers" it was indicated he planted a bomb on the Argo's underside and detached. This was followed by a reuse of dialogue footage between Lysis and Vulgar now indicating that because the bomb's blast didn't destroy the Argo they were returning to Gamilon in disgrace). He is credited with the invention of a device called the Instant Matter Transporter (Space Matter Instant Transforming Equipment, or SMITE, in "Star Blazers"), capable of teleporting whole battle fleets into the vicinity of an enemy vessel, which is used later by Desler himself. His Japanese name comes from Field Marshal Erwin Rommel; Rommel was known as "The Desert Fox" and Domel is called "The Space Wolf". His English name comes from lysis, the Greek term for cell-death or decomposition.
** Japanese voice artist: Osamu Kobayashi
** American voice artist: unknown

* nihongo|Goer|ゲール|Gēru (Volgar/Vulgar): one-time commander of the Gamilons' waypoint base on planet Balan, he reacts to his replacement by Domel angrily, getting drunk and trashing his decadently-decorated room (this scene was cut from "Star Blazers"). Desperate to prove himself to Desler, he attempts to fight the "Yamato" on his own terms, but is defeated resoundingly; he also informs Desler of Domel's plan to sacrifice the base in an attempt to destroy the "Yamato", leading to a critical delay which enables the Earth ship to escape. However, he comes to admire Domel's loyalty to the Gamilon cause, and assists him in his battle for honour. His Japanese name comes from "Luftwaffe" commander Hermann Göring; the spelling of his English name is uncertain as it was not captioned.

** American voice artist: Mike Czechopoulos

* Captains nihongo|Getto|ゲットー|Gettō, nihongo|Berger|バーガー|Bāgā, nihongo|Kreuz|クロイツ|Kuroitsu and nihongo|Heidern|ハイデルン|Haiderun: captains who serve under Domel in the battle at the Rainbow Cluster, having earned great acclaim at, respectively, the Ruby, Sapphire, Diamond and Omega war fronts. The first three command carriers launch (respectively) fighters, divebombers and torpedo planes, while the last commands a battle carrier launching a single heavy bomber which carries a drill missile designed by Domel. All four captains fly into battle themselves alongside their men, though Kreuz is not shown (due to an oversight by the animators).
** Japanese voice artists: Kōji Yada (Heidern), Takeshi Aono (Berger), Ichirō Nagai (Getto), Isao Sakuma (Kreuz)

* nihongo|Vandevil|バンデビル|Bandebiru (Garrat): commander of a Gamilon battle carrier in season 2, he sends a fleet of dive-bombers to attack the "Yamato" when it is paralysed by a swarm of corrosive bacteria. However, before he can destroy the Earth ship, his own vessel is similarly rendered powerless, and he is forced to retreat in disgrace. His humiliation earns him a bullet from Desler (not shown in "Star Blazers").

* nihongo|Helmeyer|ヘルマイヤー|Herumaiyā (Nayzmayo)

He is commissioned by Desslok to find a way to restore the normal conditions of Earth's Sun. Failing in this, he cannot return to Desslok honorably, and so crashes his ship into the Sun.
* nihongo|Heiger|ハイゲル|Haigeru
* nihongo|Gehlen|ゲーレン|Gēren

Comet Empire

The people of the Comet Empire appear in the second season; like the Gamilons they are identical to humans aside from their green skin.

* Emperor nihongo|Zwordar the Great|ズォーダー大帝|Zwōdā taitei (Prince Zordar) (Principe Zoltan): the undisputed leader of the Comet Empire, Zwordar's sole aim in life is to conquer and subjugate the Universe. To this aim, he travels space in an enormous city-planet, Gatlantis, surrounded by a powerful plasma shield which resembles a gigantic comet, capable of annihilating planets in its path, and launching fleets of warships to conquer any useful worlds -- or destroy them if they resist. Having subjugated the entire Andromeda Galaxy, his next target is Earth. Frustrated time and again by the incompetence of his minions -- and interference from the mysterious Teresa of Telezart -- he takes matters into his own hands at the end of the second season, launching a massive dreadnaught from the shattered remains of Gatlantis with the intent of destroying all life on Earth. His Japanese name is based on the word "sword".
** Japanese voice artist: Osamu Kobayashi
** American voice artist: unknown

*Lady nihongo|Sabera|サーベラ|Sābera (Princess Invidia) (Principessa Invidia): Zwordar's mistress (his daughter in "Star Blazers"), though unlike other citizens of the Comet Empire she has pink skin. She has great ambition and is jealous of the favor Desler has in Zwordar's eyes; In which she works on plotting against him and Zwordar to keep her place in the empire. It is her treachery that ruins the Gamilon leader's plan to destroy the "Yamato" and the main reason the Comet Empire falls. In turn the Emperor never forgives her, in the Japanese version he leaves her behind in the destruction with Goenitz and Razela, while in the English version he only threatens to leave them behind. Her Japanese name is based on the word "sabre", while her English name comes from the Latin term for jealousy.

* nihongo|Goenitz|ゲーニッツ|Gēnittsu (General Dyre) and nihongo|Razela|ラーゼラー|Rāzerā (General Gorse): members of Zwordar's court and co-conspirators with Sabera to destroy Desler's reputation, a plan which earns their Emperor's anger. When their plans enable the "Yamato" crew to cripple Gatlantis, Zwordar abandons them to destruction aboard the doomed space station (not shown in "Star Blazers"). The name "Dyre" comes from the Latin term for an ill-omen, while "Gorse" comes from the Middle English verb meaning "to stab".
** Japanese voice artists: Ichiro Murakoshi and Kazuyuki Sogabe
** American voice artists: unknown

* nihongo|Mil|ミル|Miru (Morta): a political commissar placed aboard Desler's flagship, he reports to Sabera and her conspirators. The Japanese word "miru" is a verb meaning "to watch", while his English name "Morta" comes from the Latin word for death.
** Japanese voice artist: Osamu Ichikawa
** American voice artist: unknown

* Admiral nihongo|Cosmodart Nazca|コズモダード・ナスカ|Kozumodāto Nasuka (General Naska): young leader of the Comet Empire's vanguard force to conquer the Solar System; initially scornful of the aging Earth ship "Yamato", when defeated he begs Desler for help, only to be turned away. Likely named after the Nazca Lines.
** Japanese voice artist: Hiroya Ishimaru
** American voice artist: unknown

* Admiral nihongo|Goland|ゴーランド|Gōrando (General Torbuck): sadistic leader of the Comet Empire's missile fleet and famous hunter of dinosaurs. Despite being placed under Desler's command at Telezart, he violates orders and engages the "Yamato" head-on, but his arrogance leaves him at the mercy of the Earth ship's wave motion gun.
** Japanese voice artist: Shozo Iizuka (Osamu Saka in "Arrivederci, Yamato")
** American voice artist: unknown

* General nihongo|Zurvival|ザバイバル|Zabaibaru (General Scorch): scar-faced commander of a tank contingent stationed on planet Telezart to meet the "Yamato", he faces Saito's space marines in intense ground combat. Fighting to the last man, he is killed in a pistol fight with Saito himself (toned down to simply being knocked out in Star Blazers). His Japanese name is based on the word "survival".
** Japanese voice artist: Kosei Tomita
** American voice artist: unknown

* nihongo|Mazor|メーザー|Mēzā: a pilot captured by the "Yamato", he refuses to answer questions -- even under torture -- but loosens up when Dr. Sado introduces him to "sake". However, it is but a ruse to enable him to escape and return to his fleet, but they spurn him as a former captive. Such is his loyalty to the Comet Empire that he makes a kamikaze run into the "Yamato", killing himself, rather than join the Earth crew.
** Japanese voice artist: Ikuo Nishikawa

* nihongo|Destar|デスタール|Desutāru: a sub-commander in Goland's missile fleet, he refuses to allow the former captive Mazor to return and orders him to his death. This provokes a deadly attack from the "Yamato" which destroys him and his ships.
** Japanese voice artist: Masaru Ikeda

* nihongo|Gern|ゲルン|Gerun (General Manic): commander of the Comet Empire's carrier fleet. In the final assault on the Solar System he is stationed too far away from Valsey's battle fleet and is caught unawares by a full-scale attack by Earth fighter-bomber squadrons; unable to devise a strategy to resist the assault, he commits suicide in shame shortly before his ship explodes.

* Admiral nihongo|Valsey|バルゼー|Baruzē (General Bleak): in charge of the Comet Empire's main warfleet, stationed at Procyon and Sirius and thus missed by the "Yamato" during its journey to planet Telezart. As Gatlantis approaches our Galaxy, Valsey's fleet begins its advance on the Solar System, routing Earth's defences and very nearly driving home the invasion thanks to the main weapon of Valsey's flagship, the Flame Direct-hit Gun ("Magma-Flame Gun" in "Star Blazers"), a wave motion gun which fires into a teleportation field. However, Hijikata leads them into the rings of Saturn, where the weapon proves to be a liability, and Valsey and his fleet are destroyed. His Japanese name comes from William Halsey, Jr., admiral of the United States 3rd Fleet during much of World War II.

Black Nebula Empire

The people of the Black Nebula Empire live on the metal planet Dezarium in the Black Nebula, a double-galaxy 200,000 light years from Earth. Although humanoid, they are in fact bionic, having given up the pleasures of human flesh in exchange for longevity. They appear in the movies "Yamato: The New Voyage" and "Be Forever, Yamato".

* nihongo|Deider|デーダー|Dēdā: commander of the flagship "Pleiades". When the Gamilas fleet attacks the Black Nebula forces mining their homeworld and cause the planet's destruction, Deider in turn attacks them and pins them down in the seas of Iscandar. When the "Yamato" attacks, he attempts to position his ship between the Earth vessel and Iscandar to discourage use of the Wave Motion Gun, but is destroyed when Iscandar moves to safety due to volcanic eruptions.
** Japanese voice artist: Kōsei Tomita

The people of the planet Deingil, who appear in the movie "Final Yamato", are descendants of Earth humans rescued from our planet by unknown aliens (whom they now regard as gods) during a flood 10,000 years ago. They developed an advanced empire on their new homeworld (as well as grey skin) and have become extremely arrogant and militant. Most of them were wiped out when their homeworld was flooded by the planet Aquarius.

* nihongo|Lugal|ルガール|Rugāru: supreme leader of the Deingilians, he escapes his drowning homeworld aboard the enormous space station "Uruk". He is impassive when told his wife and younger son perished, believing that only the strong should survive, and decides that Earth should become the new home of his people, planning to use Aquarius to flood it. Spurning the very idea of "charity", he sets about exterminating the human race, ensuring it cannot even leave Earth before flooding. He kills his own elder son when the latter fails to destroy the "Yamato", shows no concern when he accidentally shoots his younger son, and self-destructs "Uruk" -- killing all living within its city -- when its purpose has been served. He is also seen to ride into battle (aboard a mechanical horse) alongside his troops.

* nihongo|Lugal de Zahl|ルガール・ド・ザール|Rugāru Do Zāru: elder son of the Deingilian leader, a young military commander who shows no mercy to his enemies, and has no qualms about firing on unarmed civilian transports, or even rescue ships tending to the wounded. However, when defeated by the "Yamato" (as well as a fleet of Earth warships) he is humiliated before his father, and becomes ever more determined to destroy the Earth ship, but when the rest of his fleet is destroyed, he turns tail and flees the battlefield, only to crash into the Neutrino Beam Shield of "Uruk".

* nihongo|Dingil Boy|ディンギルの少年|Dingiru no Shōnen: the younger son of the Deingilian leader, and the only survivor of the drowned homeworld rescued by the "Yamato" crew. He stows away aboard the Earth ship when it sets off to fight deZahl's fleet, hoping to learn more about humanity. He learns the alien concept of self-sacrifice when he sees another warship take a deadly missile hit for the "Yamato"; he is so impressed that he jumps in front of Kodai and is shot by his own father. His real name is never given and is just called Bōya.
