The male protagonist. Apollo is an orphan who grows up amongst a group of homeless children. His name is given to him by his best friend Baron, as a reference to the legendary Greek god Apollo. Apollo possesses a kind heart and noble spirit behind his rude, aggressive and bestial behavior, with extremely sharp reflexes and senses akin to a wild animal. His characteristics cause few DEAVA members to believe the rumor he is the reincarnation of the "Solar Wing" Apollonius. His main power as an Element is his fighting strength, able to shatter the head of a Cherubim Soldier with a single punch while piloting Aquarion.His OVA incarnation differs in several aspects: he was raised in the forest by his grandfather, and has a distrust of other people due to their tendency to destroy nature. He's less animalistic and more aloof.
- Adaptation Personality Change: As mention above, he is a far calmer person in the OVA, acting more like a Nature Hero rather than a Wild Child. This may have been the result of him being raised by his grandfather.
- Animal Motif: Winged Dog. Since in the TV series he was originally a Shadow Angel Dog.
- Battle Couple: With Silvia, eventually. Particularly whenever they get put into the Aquarion together, which is often.
- Belligerent Sexual Tension: He and Silvia are attracted to one another, but Silvia in particular is heavily in denial about it. It takes most of the series for them to begin accepting each other's feelings.

- Heroic Sacrifice: Following the collapse of the Tree of Life, Apollo chooses to sacrifice himself, along with Sirius and Toma to restore the world.

- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: His... upbringing tends to lend itself to rudeness, and Apollo tends to be focused on his own goals over other people's. Despite this he does have a kind heart.
- Meaningful Name: His friend Baron named him after the Greek god of the sun Apollo.
- Naked First Impression: With Silvia and Reika in the OAVs.
- Noble Male, Roguish Male: Roguish Male to Sirius' Noble Male.
- The Nose Knows: He has a near-supernaturally good sense of smell, and is often seen sniffing and following scents.

- Red Is Heroic: He's The Hero and he has red hair.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red to Sirius' Blue.

- Reincarnation Romance: With Silvia. Complicated a bit by the fact that he's the reincarnation of a dog.
- Star-Crossed Lovers: With Silvia. Right as he and Silvia finally admit their feelings, he has to sacrifice himself to save the world. He tells Silvia that they should meet again in another 12,000 years.

- Take Care of the Kids: Before his Heroic Sacrifice, he asks Silvia to look after his orphan friends in his place.
- Tragic Keepsake: A piece of Baron's headband.
