[ Triton of the Sea ] [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triton_of_the_Sea ] (海のトリトン) (1972). Quote:

5000 years ago, the Triton Family was living peacefully in Atlantis until the Poseidon Family destroyed them all out of jealousy for their successes. The race of merman was annihilated leaving Triton, the last survivor of his kind. Ruka took the orphaned Triton to Japan in order to protect him from his enemies. …

日本卡通「海王子」原名「海のトリトン」,改編自手塚治虫於1969年創作的同名漫畫,1972.4.1 〜 1972.9.30在日本TBS首映,共27集 …

…手塚常在作品中鋪陳對人文的關懷,並用隱喻的方式來宣揚「反戰」思想,當然「海王子」也不例外。

海王子原本是日本某個小漁村裡的一個平凡少年,由爺爺獨力養育著。某日,海王子在海邊遇到了會說話的白海豚露卡,露卡告訴海王子一個驚人的秘密:海王子是海中民族「托里頓族」的末代後裔!

就在此時,來自「普西頓族」的怪獸突然出現,並攻擊海王子居住的漁村,而海王子靠著露卡的協助,順利地消滅了怪獸。

得知自己是「托里頓族」的海王子,決定要解開自己的身世之謎,於是便乘著海豚露卡離開從小生活的漁村,開始了尋根的冒險旅程。

Note that in this story, the hero's name is Triton, and the bad guy's name is Poseidon. As a kid, i didn't know nothing about it. But now reading about it, you realize that these are borrowed from Greek Mythology. In this cartoon, Triton and Poseidon are enemies. In Greek mythology, Triton is son of Poseidon.
