The Tower of Druaga (1984)

Gilgamesh (Japanese: ギルガメッシュ Girugamesshu), often shortened to Gil, is a major protagonist of the Babylonian Castle Saga, appearing as the main protagonist of the series' first instalment The Tower of Druaga. For a significant part of his life, Gil was enslaved by the Sumerians that had attacked and conquered his homeland of Babylim, killing his father, the king, in the process. Gil traverses the titular Tower of Druaga in order to save his friend Ki, locate the Blue Crystal Rod, and reclaim his kingdom with help of the Goddess of Love and War, Ishtar. Gilgamesh begins the series as the prince of Babylim, and eventually ascends to the throne in the canonical ending of The Blue Crystal Rod.

Gilgamesh is based upon the Sumerian king of the same name, with prominent influence coming from the mythology surrounding him.
