This page lists characters appearing in the anime series Space Battleship Yamato 2199, the movie Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Odyssey of the Celestial Ark, and the sequel series Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love.

Characters are organized first by allegiance and/or home, and with more specific affiliations wherever possible. With occasional exceptions for leaders, characters are listed alphabetically by family name within specific categories. Categories are assigned according to a character's primary role in their first series or movie; for example, Ryu Hijikata goes on to become the commanding officer of Yamato in Space Battleship Yamato 2202, but he is not attached to Yamato in the previous series or movie and therefore is not categorized as such. Minor or briefly appearing characters who are relatives of more prominent ones are nested below the respective prominent character's name.

General references are listed at the end of this page. Specific episode and official source references are noted in each character's individual article.
