* AdaptationalBadass: in the 2010 movie, Analyzer is a belt-mounted PDA[=/=]"[[NewGods Mother Box]]" before being installed into his traditional robot body - except ''it's over 20 feet tall.''

* {{Woosleyism}}: In the Star Blazers dub, Mamoru sacrifices himself against the Gamilons to give Okita time to escape, rather than martial pride. Every other adaptation of the series has gone with this reason.

** Furthermore, in what could only be described as a really odd instance of TheQueensLatin, ''Star Blazers'' has many of the Galmans in the Bolar Wars series speak in a variety of accents from around the British Commonwealth, some of them pretty bad. (Of course, some of the AmericanAccents are pretty goofy-sounding too.)

Also, on April 27, 2012, a remake of the original series called ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato2199'' began to air. It will be a 26 episode anime based on the first series and divided into 7 films for theatrical release.

* FollowTheLeader: ''StarWars'' and both versions of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Classic}}'' drew heavily from ''Space Battleship Yamato,'' sometimes practically scene-by-scene. See also OlderThanTheyThink.

** On the other hand, the 2010 live-action movie clearly takes inspiration from ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'' in multiple ways, from {{Gender Flip}}ping multiple characters, to taking more cynical spins on their original premises (e.g. [[spoiler:Captain Okita's revelation that he made up "Iscandar" and the radiation-cleaning technology, just because humanity needed hope -- and because the fact the message capsule removed the radiation from around Kodai when it landed gave ''him'' hope.]]) The effect of the ship emerging from warp also looks exactly like the "kawoosh" from ''Franchise/{{Stargate|Verse}}''.

Compare to SpaceCarrierBlueNoah (aka Thunder Sub in English-speaking countries) for a thematically similar anime, with which it even shares a producer, Yoshinobu Nishizaki. The rumor goes that it was created because Nishizaki was at the time involved in a copyright dispute about ''Yamato'' with Creator/LeijiMatsumoto, and wanted to have a [[CaptainErsatz back-up property]] to capitalize on ''Yamato'''s runaway success should he lose the legal battle.

* SpiritualSuccessor / Ripoff / CaptainErsatz: ''SpaceCarrierBlueNoah'', another Hishizaki's series that was reputedly created as a fall-back should he lose a copyright dispute with Matsumoto. It was reasonably popular in Japan, but failed to really take off, and with The Nish winning his lawsuit it wasn't developed further and fell into relative obscurity.

* AdaptationDistillation / AdaptationExpansion: The anime does both: due the first series being cut from 39 episodes to 26, the manga plot about [[spoiler: CaptainHarlock]] was dropped, but parts that in the manga were only mentioned (like the battle against the Insect Men, the assault on Gamilas' base on Pluto and the battle at Gamilas itself) were actually shown, events from the manga were expanded, and most of the Comet Empire series is expanded from a part of the manga that covers only the first few episodes.

* PeekABangs: Fighter pilot Yamamoto/Hardy goes into ''combat'' with one eye obscured. This is probably to be expected in a series by the creator of ''CaptainHarlock''.

** At the end of Final Yamato, [[spoiler: Dessler]] stands on the outer deck of his ship, saluting, no helmet, the wind blowing through his hair and rippling his cape... all in the airless void of outer space. Though somehow [[spoiler: [[BackFromTheDead he's survived the vacuum of space for extended periods of time without a suit before.]] ]]

Added DiffLines:
** In the second season, [[spoiler: Saito/Knox]] sets charges in the Comet City as part of a suicide mission. Kodai got out quickly, but he had a several-minute head start and just escaped in his life. In the American dub, a bridge crewmember radios Wildstar that "[[spoiler: Knox]] got out just in time." Of course he's never seen again.

* [BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler: Okita ''was'' dead at the end of the first TV series, but for some reason the writers decided to bring him back as Captain in ''Final Yamato'']]

** For the FurryFandom we have ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'', who shares many points with ''Yamato'' including the [[spoiler:WaveMotionGun, except the ''Albedo'' version of that weapon is considered as an ArtifactOfDoom, not to mention being even more powerful than even the 2199 version of the same weapon, being capable of destroying ''whole galaxies'' with it]]. The author admited he took some inspiration from ''Yamato'' for the plot in an interview, along many sources.
