* AbusiveParents: Is one to Esmeralda, in the anime.
* AdaptationDyeJob: It is black in the manga.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Acts very nonchalant towards [[spoiler:killing his own daughter.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Take a guess...
* MalevolentMaskedMen: Of the monster face variant. According to Esmeralda, he ''was'' a NiceGuy until [[BrainwashedAndCrazy he put on that mask]].
* MentorOccupationalHazard: To Ikki.
** [[TheyCallHimSword They Call Him Guilty]]
* [[spoiler: OffingTheOffspring: In the anime. Poor, POOR Esmeralda.]]
* RedOni: To Cepheus Albiore/Daidalos.
* RuleOfDrama: Arguably ''why'' he was made Esmeralda's father in the anime.
* TrainingFromHell: Gave it to Ikki. All Saints are put through a very tough training, but Guilty's is just... wow.
!!Crystal Saint (''Anime Only'')
!!! Voiced By: MichihiroIkemizu (JP)
* AdaptationExpansion: Is the master of Hyoga in the anime and the substitute to Camus in all the flashbacks of the training.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: The Pope pulled this on him, [[spoiler:thus forcing Hyoga to kill him]].
** [[spoiler: DyingAsYourself ''and'' DiedInYourArmsTonight]]
* EvilCounterpart: Well, only when brainwashed, but he is this to Hyoga in their fight
* GoodIsNotDumb: Was also aware that something went on in the Sanctuary, so he tried to talk to the Pope himself. [[spoiler: It backfired. '''Horribly'''.]]
* MentorOccupationalHazard: To Hyoga.
* TheObiWan: To Hyoga, in the anime.
** MasterApprenticeChain: Aquarius Camus taught the Crystal Saint, who taught Hyoga.
* [[spoiler: WaifFu: EXTREMELY RareMaleExample. His body is unnaturally flexible without being a RubberMan, thus he uses his hands ''and'' legs to apply the ''Freezing Fists'' to Hyoga's almost whole body.]]
* ShooOutTheNewGuy: Due to the anime, OverTookTheManga, Crystal Saint was declared Hyoga's Master instead of Camus. The only explanation they could give was that Camus was Crystal Saint's Master and that Hyoga's fight was with his Master's Master. This explanation worked for a while until the Hades OVA where it started showing scenes of Camus training Hyoga instead. It doesn't help that some video games and media keep [[ContinuitySnarl altering between Camus/Crystal as Hyoga's Master who trained him]].
!!! Voiced By: Creator/BanjoGinga (JP)
* BreakingtheFourthWall: When he is introduced, someone launches a wooden sign with his name on it and he inmediately tosses it aside.
** Actually this is a call card (an artefact from the manga, where Saints have these, and leave them to show they were here ; namely the Bronzes leave them on the Silver Saints' bodies after killing them , but this didn't catch on) that he supposedly sent to Ikki, who throws it back at him.
* [[GoodScarsEvilScars Evil Scars]]: Half of his face is horribly burned, as you can see.
* JerkAss: And how.
* TheMafia: Said to be the leader of ALL the mafias and terrorist groups in the world.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Light Purple Hair]]

* EvilTwin: They look like the Bronze Saints, but evil!
** Black Dragon even has a twin brother in the manga. Thus Shiryu not only has an evil twin, but an evil twin's twin!
* EvilGloating: They do a lot of that, because they are evil!
* EyeScream: When Black Swan [[spoiler: takes out his own eye and sends it to Ikki to inform him of his technique. This is only in the manga.]]

!!Steel Saints - Tucana Sho, Vulpecula Daichi and Delphinus Ushio (''Anime Only'')
!!! Tucana Sho: Creator/ShigeruNakahara (JP)
!!! Delphinus Ushio: HochuOtsuka (JP)
* BigDamnHeroes: The point of their existence is to occasionally bail out the Bronze Saints.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: They kind of just... disappear when Seiya and the gang leave for Sanctuary. It's not even between episodes or anything - they're there in one scene, then gone in the next with no mention.
* CoolBoard: Daichi can [[TransformingMecha transform]] his cloth into one.
* KidAppealCharacter: All three, but especially Daichi.
** Sho: Sky
** Daichi: Earth (Land)
** Ushio: Marine (Sea)
* MerchandiseDriven: Their vehicle cloths can actually be put together to create one big robot. It never quite made [[AbortedArc it to the anime]]....
* SuperSpeed: While technically all Saints have it, the Steel Saints are capable of using it without the cosmos.
!! Docrates (''Anime Only'')
* AvengingTheVillain: Cassios' older brother.
** You can tell since he's the only villain in the entire series who decides to ''[[ScrewThisImOutOfHere bail]]'' when the [[PoliceAreUseless cops]] show up!
* GiantMook: He leads [[MiniMook several henchmen]], dressed like him as well.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: Adverted, his great strength and size actually forced the Bronze Saints to use teamwork in order to defeat him.
** However he fought the Bronze Saints, each time when they were ''not'' at full strength. Hell the only reason why they flee him in the first place is because of the very tough battle they had with ''Ikki'', and it takes them a while to return to full power in series.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: He's a Saint but it resembles one of the Specters.
* NotDrawnToScale: At the end of one episode, he was holding Saori around her waist with ONE HAND and Tatsumi in the other.
* WolverineClaws: Blink and you'll miss, but they come out when he's about to perform a finishing move on Seiya in episode 17.
