Sakezan is a character in the Galaxy Express 999 series, which was created by Leiji Matsumoto, who is popular for the Captain Harlock franchise and its related series. He makes his first appearance in Episode #29 "The Sakezan Continent". In the anime series his design and creation are credited to Shingo Araki and Shigeru Kogawa respectively.
After drinking the sake that naturally forms in the trees on Sakezan Continent, Tetsuro and Maetel are attacked and knocked unconscious by Sakezan, who accuses them of theft. Sakezan decides to take Maetel with him and make her his house slave while he leaves Tetsuro where he lays. Eventually, Tetsuro seeks him out and the two battle and Tetsuro is defeated and imprisoned at Sakezan's house. While there, Tetsuro meets a woman named Liza who Sakezan originally imprisoned like Maetel but eventually began to treat with kindness. After repeated escape attempts and battles, one of which allowed Liza to leave, Sakezan comes to respect Tetsuro and decides to let him and Maetel leave. Having done so, Liza returns to Sakezan in tears and the two decide to live their lives together on the planet.
