* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Sometime between the Posseidon and Hades arcs, Deathmask found his forgotten loyalty to Athena and decided to help Shion in his plan to give Athena her Divine Cloth.]]



* RedemptionEqualsDeath: [[spoiler:In the Hades Saga, though very ''very'' later]].



* TheDreaded: In the anime (and ''Manga/SaintSeiyaEpisodeG'') [[InformedAttribute he's described by Saga]] as the most terrifying man amongst the Gold Saints. For the original series, this comes up as a InformedAbility, due to his lack of feats in comparation of Saga or Shaka, and for being victim of TheWorfEffect more than most gold saints. However, ''Episode G'' and ''Soul of Gold'' show us that wasn't an empty boast; in the former, a group of powerful enemies is shown absolutely terrified to be facing him, and in the later, he {{Mind Rape}}s Fafner into submission.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodIsNotNice [[GoodIsNotSoft or Soft]]: Saga's good side acts almost exactly as his evil side, the main difference being that he's now targeting Athena's enemies.


Added DiffLines:

* NoNonsenseNemesis: His assassins are ''very'' carefully picked, in both manga and anime:
** In the manga he first sends in [[spoiler:Hyoga]], whose abilities bypass all the defenses of the other Saints, then two ''squadrons of Silver Saints'' (including one that could one-shot ''Mount Fuji''), and when even that failed he sent in a ''Gold Saint'' ([[LampshadeHanging Milo was surprised when he was told he had to kill a bunch of Bronze Saints]]). And when ''that'' failedhe forced them to [[RunTheGauntlet face all the Gold Saints in quick succession]], also having Ptolemy mortally wound Saori.
** In the anime he takes a smaller role, only ordering directly Ikki to go there with ''a small army'', before trusting Gigars to deal with the mess-and brainwashing the Crystal Saint when he refuses the order. Then he doesn't intervene again for a while until Gigars is replaced by Phaeton-and orders Phaeton to use the Silver Saints specifically. After this he stops taking a direct role again for a while, but when the Sagittarius Cloth disappears he directly brings in the Gold Saints and Ptolemy as in the manga.
** Even as a force of good he keeps this attitude, with his opponents in ''Anime/SaintSeiyaSoulOfGold'' surviving his arrival because they ''[[ScrewThisImOuttaHere run]]'' the moment they see he's charging a Galaxian Explosion.

* MeditationPowerup: A brutal inversion, in that he meditates to ''limit'' his powers. Even his peers among the Gold Saints ''dread'' having to fight him for fear of him stopping his meditation to open his eyes. In the Hades arc, [[CrowningMomentofAwesome he fights three resurrected Gold Saints at the same time]][[spoiler: and he loses only because [[ThanatosGambit he allows them to.]] By the end of the fight, the Gold Saints have [[CurbStompBattle each lost four of their five senses and gotten beat up pretty bad.]]]]

* AGodAmI: In the anime version, he says he will spare Ikki if the bronze saint kowtows and worships him as a god. He also says that the only difference between himself and {{God}} is that, [[GoodIsGood unlike God]], he himself has no mercy for the weak except for MercyKill.

* CoolMask: Unlike most of the other gold saints, who wear (or at least [[HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic possess]]) helmets, he wears a crab-themed mask that seems to offer more in the way of decoration than protection.
