* ''Arcadia of my Youth - Endless Orbit SSX'' (1982) - A sequel to TheMovie involves Harlock and the ''Arcadia'' searching for ''paradise''. Cut short by due to poor ratings, resulting in a bit of a GeckoEnding. An American comic series, printed in the early-mid 1990s, was essentially an adaptation of ''SSX'' (minus the more mystical elements).

Added DiffLines:

* SpaceSailing: Both this and Space Trains! Not only does Harlock's ''Arcadia'' appear to have the back-end of a galley, she can effectively function as a submarine.

* RunningGag: people who met both Emeraldas and Maetel remarking that Emeraldas is the tough twin and Maetel the nice, sweet and harmless one. After all, it's Maetel who [[EarthShatteringKaboom blew up a planet]] because the local mecha people disgusted her, while disgusting Emeraldas usually results in her walking away 'till the disgusting one calls her a coward (and get killed).

** In the first ''GalaxyExpress999'' movie Harlock showed his ability to kill machine people by ''having them drink milk''. You hardly get more badass than this.

* NoKillLikeOverkill: Emeraldas' titular ship in the ''Queen Emeraldas'' OVA. Attacked by hundreds of ships, Emeraldas doesn't react at first, due to the enemy holding hostages. The very moment the hostages escape, she opens fire... and annihilates 70% of the enemy ships WITH THE FIRST SALVO! Yes, the Queen Emeraldas has that many guns. Incidentally, that's when the villain gets an OhCrap face. Oh, and one of the ''many'' guns of her ships is a WaveMotionGun, and she was about using it on the main villain's ship before his boss beat her to the punch...



* PapaWolf: A defining trait in any of Harlock's incarnations. Harlock will not suffer a child abuser to live. Particularly, hurting his goddaughter Mayu(Tochiro and Emeraldas's daughter) or Tetsuro(from ''GalaxyExpress999'') is LITERALLY a death sentence.

** One particularly egregious example happens in the Maetel Legend OVA: the villain, supreme overlord wannabee in command of the mecha people, remarked that and ordered Emeraldas killed and Maetel taken prisoner, but when his mooks tried it they discovered she had a custom-made gun intended to kill only mecha people she later admits having ordered because she expected she would have to kill her own mother, Ra Andromeda Promesium, who is being mechanized and may go mad. As anyone who watched ''Galaxy Express 999'' knows, [[spoiler: the mother went in fact mad due the particular mechanization process and too though for the gun, so Maetel pulled a decades-long {{plan}} ending in Maetel convincing Tetsuro to blow up his first planet, with Promesium on it]].

** Maya, the voice of LaResistance, confesses her love for Harlock in a posthumous message, and her death is the only event Harlock is visibly shaken by. Nonetheless, it is never established just what their relationship was, exactly.

* ImpliedLoveInterest: It's hard to tell just what Harlock and Miime's relationship is. They spend a lot of time together, and she seems to exhibit jealousy when she sees Harlock with the Mazone spy, but they're never shown doing much aside from talking, drinking or playing music.

* '' Gun Frontier '' (2002) - Harlock and his best friend in Tochiro [[RecycledInSpace in the Wild West]]. No science fiction here, but the funniest series starring Harlock so far.

* BestFriend: One thing consistent across all the different continuities is that Tochiro Oyama is always Harlock's bro for life.



* {{Gonk}}: Several characters, including his best friend Tochiro. In fact, sometimes it seems that humanity has evolved into two distinct races in the [[TheVerse Leijiverse]]: a race of beautiful NoodlePeople and a race of hideously deformed midgets.
