In the manga and anime Excel Saga, Il Palazzo is the leader of ACROSS. His primary duty is to provide Excel and Hyatt with a somewhat insane mission to accomplish, with the goal of turning this rotten world into an ideal place. He is rarely seen far from his underground throne, where he uses a convenient pullcord to drop any employees he is annoyed with through a trapdoor to wherever it leads at that particular moment. Voiced in the Japanese version by Koyasu Takehito, and dubbed by Jason Douglas.
