Sabazushi (サバズシ, Sabazushi) was a mercenary working for Battera. He was the leader of an armed force responsible for protecting the castle in which Battera's Greed Island game consoles were run.[1]


Sabazushi was a rotund man in his fifties, with short fair hair and a darker-colored mustache. He had a square face, a flat nose, and slightly asymmetrical eyes. While working for Battera he wore a mimetic uniform and a beret.


Sabazushi seemed to be rather kind, since, despite receiving his cancellation fee, he stayed at Battera's place to inform Tsezguerra.[1]

Sabazushi killed by Genthru

Upon returning to Battera's mansion, Tsezguerra and comrades try and confront a self-confined Battera, but to no avail. Sabazushi then approaches the group to inform them that Battera has terminated and paid everyone under his employment their final wages and termination fees. When Genthru leaves Greed Island to follow Tsezguerra's trail, he encounters and kills Sabazushi.[1]

  • Sabazushi's name is equal and probably comes from saba-zushi or sabazushi (saba, 鯖 or サバ being the Japanese name for mackerel fish), a famous type of oshizushi ("pressed sushi") with mackerel cured with salt and vinegar. This food is alternatively called バッテラ (battera, pressed mackerel sushi)—such as the name of Sabazushi's employer, Battera.

Anime and Manga Differences

  • Sabazushi is mentioned by name, but doesn't appear in person in the 1999 OVA anime adaptation.
