Captain Zeril (ゼリル Zeriru) is a character that appears in the Super Dimension Fortress Macross television series. A Zentradi officer, he captained a Thuverl-Salan-class Battleship during Space War I.


On April 3, 2009,[1] Zeril was summoned by Vrlitwhai Kridanik and ordered to approach Saturn to capture the SDF-1 Macross, preferably undamaged. Captain Zeril’s Thuverl-Salan-class Battleship proceeded to shoot at the rings of Saturn which frightened Hikaru Ichijyo. Roy Focker gave the order to commence a full on attack and swarms of Valkyries flew and fired missiles at the Zentradi under Captain Zeril's command.

Exsedol became irritated upon seeing that as weak as they are, the humans dared to attack the Zentradi, finding their grasp of battle tactics laughable. Commander Vrlitwai said they haven’t realized that the Zentradi were holding back in order to capture their vessel and he thought that it was time they show the full terrifying might of the Zentradi. Regults deployed from the Zentradi ships and engaged VF-1 Valkyries. Vanessa Laird reported that Zeril's battleship was approaching the Macross's main gun’s starboard firing arc and that they had a lock. Captain Global gave the order to raise the ship (from hiding the ring of Saturn) and to fire the main gun. Claudia LaSalle tried to fire the main cannon at Captain Zeril’s ship but couldn't.

According to the crew at engineering, the pinpoint barrier system was somehow preventing it from its operation. As Captain Zeril fired missiles upon the Macross, operators May, Pocky and Panapp controlled the pin-point barrier by moving it over the targeted spots. Despite struggles from May and Panapp to control the pin-point barrier, Captain Zeril felt insulted that the Macross was not harmed by any of the missiles he launched and so Regults surrounded the Macross from all sides. The Macross closed in on Captain Zeril’s ship and he gave to order to fire and blow them away.

All areas of the Macross sustained heavy damage, aside from the SLV-111 Daedalus. Misa Hayase gave the order to launch the Daedalus Attack she came up with; the Macross moved its right arm, the Daedalus, coated with the pin-point barrier and punched into Captain Zeril’s ship. Captain Zeril wondered what was going on. The bow door of the Daedalus opened to reveal several of Destroid Monsters and Defenders. The pilots fired everything they had at the bridge and killed Captain Zeril and his crew. (SDFM: "Daedalus Attack")
