Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato (さらば宇宙戦艦ヤマト 愛の戦士たち Saraba Uchuu Senkan Yamato Ai no Senshitachi?, lit. "Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato: Warriors of Love") (also rendered as Arrivederci Yamato) is the second theatrical film based on the classic anime series Space Battleship Yamato (known as Star Blazers in the United States). It was released in 1978. The previous year, the 90-minute movie version of Yamato outperformed another space opera, Star Wars, at the Japanese box office, leading to the production of a second movie that was originally intended to conclude the story; a third movie would be released two years later.

The Yamato and her crew face the onslaught of the Comet Empire, a civilization from the Andromeda Galaxy who seek to conquer Earth, led by Zwordar the Great (Prince Zordar in the English dub). The Earth ship is aided by an anti-matter woman, Teresa of Telezart (known as Trelaina in the English dub), while the Comet Empire have restored to life Earth's greatest enemy, the Gamilas' leader Desslar, who is eager for revenge. After a massive battle which destroys both Earth and Comet Empire forces, the Yamato crew defeat Zwordar's plans by ramming their ship into the Comet Empire head-on. Derek Wildstar/Susumu Kodai orders everyone else off the Argo/Yamato first. He sacrifices the Yamato and his own life to save humanity.
