Polaris Hilda

Voiced by: Maria Kawamura (JP)

Alpha Dubhe Siegfried

Voiced by: Akira Kamiya (JP), Mitsuaki Madono (JP, Soldier's Soul)

  • Achilles' Heel: The weak spot on his back.
  • Anti-Villain: He is a noble and good warrior, loyal to Hilda. Seiya tells Hilda that she was under control of the Nibelung ring, but, unfortunately, Siegfried does not believe it and considers his words are absurd.
  • Determinator: Even than, Siegfried still had such stamina and power that when Sorrento appeared, Siegfried not only pierced his ears in an attempt to nullify Sorrento's Dead End Symphony but was actually able to come within melee distance despite his injuries from Seiya. He even got pierced through the heart by Sorrento but Siegfried had the reserves and willpower to gather his cosmos and take Sorrento with him in a suicide attack similar to Shiryu's Rozan Koryuha. Sorrento would have died in the attack if he didn't use illusions to weaken Siegfried's grip enough to pull out his flute and play music to make Siegfried lose control and let go off him.]]
  • Blood Bath: His namesake from the Nibelungenlied slayed a dragon and bathed in its blood, making himself invulnerable, but at that very moment a tiny leaf falls on his back (coincidentally over his heart), preventing that bit of skin from being touched by the blood, and therefore making that spot the only part of his body that can be dealt a mortal blow. Therefore, the God Warrior Siegfried inherited his destiny, invulnerability and weaknesses.
  • Bodyguard Crush: Siegfried loved Hilda secretly in his heart, and vowed to protect her with his life.
  • The Dragon: No pun intended.
  • Evil Counterpart:
    • Blatantly intended to be Shiryu's counterpart, with the dragon-like armor and Achilles' Heel.
    • Even moreso in the Spanish version of the Soldiers Soul videogame where he's played by Shiryu's voice actor.
  • Heel–Face Turn and Redemption Equals Death: When Siren Sorento, one of the Poseidon's mariner general, appeared and tells how as Polaris Hilda was changed by the Nibelungen Ring, Siegfried, full of anger, faces Sorrento and tries to kill him in the same way Dragon Shiryu did with Capricorn Shura. However, Sorrento escapes and survived the attack, but not Siegfried, who died in the process.
  • Honor Before Reason / My Master, Right or Wrong: He noticed that Hilda had changed, becoming more aggressive and power hungry soon after. He was additionally warned by Freya that a drastic change had come over the priestess of Asgard. Siegfried didn't believe Freya and, despite Hilda's altered personality, he remained loyal to her.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: As mentioned above inherited from his namesake the invulnerability.
  • One-Man Army: Took on all the main Bronzies simultaneously in a brutal curbstomp. [[spoiler: Shiryu almost resorted to Rozan Kōryūha but was stopped by Shura's spirit because it would have destroyed the Odin Sapphire. It was only after getting beaten brutally that Shiryu was able to find Siegfried's weakness that Seiya was able to change the tides of the battle.
  • Taking You with Me: To Siren Sorento. Does not work.

Merak Beta Hagen

Voiced by: Bin Shimada (JP) Daniel Abundis (Latin America)

Phecda Gamma Thor

Voiced By: Yusaku Yara (JP)

  • Animal Motifs: Snake (Jormungand)
  • An Axe to Grind: Thor uses twin axes named 'Mjolnir'.
  • Badass Beard
  • Gentle Giant: Is actually this deep down.
  • Honor Before Reason: He noticed the change in Hilda, and acknowledges with his dying breath that Seiya was right and the Saints are probably the only ones who can restore Hilda.
  • Just Like Robin Hood: His backstory. Owner of a kind heart, the giant Thor shared his food with poor families in Asgard. One day, he was attacked by castle guards who wounded him in the arm. Suddenly Polaris Hilda appears, asking his subordinates to stop attacking and heal him.
  • Meaningful Name: His named on the famous thunder god of Norse Mythology.
  • The Brute: For the God Warriors of Asgard.

Megrez Delta Alberich

Voiced By: Shigeru Nakahara (JP) César Arias (Latin America)

  • Combat Pragmatist: Since he has a weak body but quite versatile powers, he uses those and his knowledge without any mercy.
  • Crystal Prison: A nasty version. He can summon the "Amethyst Sealed" —an attack that sends shards of amethyst flying from his body and towards the enemy, encasing him or her in a shell of translucent gemstone. If they're not freed, victims will be robbed of their lifeforce, and eventually become skeletons trapped in amethyst. And the only way to really free them is to kill Alberich himself. That almost happens to Marin and later Seiya, and Shiryu has to save them both via fighting Alberich to the death.
  • Evil Genius: His intelligence has caused some tensions with peers and Hilda herself, who had asked him to work for the joy of others, and not for selfish desires.
  • Evil Redhead: Has red hair and is the most evil of Warriors Gods of Asgard.
  • Flaming Sword: Megrez has a sword that comes together with his armor and has a flame of it's own. He can control these flames and can shred and burn all before them.
  • Glass Cannon: Is basically the God Warrior version of this, because of his weak body. Even Silver Saints like Marin can inflict severe punishment on him.
  • Genre Savvy: One of his ancestors fought a Greek Saint, and Alberich uses his notes to fight the current saints. And almost wins.
  • Green Thumb: The attack Nature Unity. It is considered one of the most powerful and appealing techniques in the anime series. With this, Alberich can manipulate the spirits of nature as he wishes and can use them to attack or to defend himself. Any form of nature that he is close to a radius of several meters is to be fully controlled.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He was the only God Warrior who harbored a secret ambition to dominate Asgard. He immediately noticed the change in Hilda and its origin, yet he only stood without doing anything, letting the situation progress until actual open war, so that he could accomplish is goal of collecting the seven Odin Sapphires to kill Hilda himself with the Balmung sword.
  • Meaningful Name: Is named after the dwarf Alberich from the Niebelungen.
  • No Ontological Inertia: When he dies, his crystal prisons are dispelled.
  • Secret Keeper: Assymetric, as he was the only Asgard saint who knew Hilda was Brainwashed and Crazy.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Despite his apparent weakness, he defeated Marin, Seiya and Hyoga.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has pink hair.

Alioth Epsilon Phenrir

Voiced by: Toshihiko Seki (JP)

  • Animal Motifs: Wolf obviously. (Fenrir)
  • Break the Cutie: His backstory. Fenrir was the son of one of the most powerful and rich families in Asgard. One day, when he and his family went hunting, they were attacked by a bear. Abandoned by humans but saved by wolves, he started to live with them, adopting their lifestyle and developing a deep hatred towards humans. Which leads him to cross the Despair Event Horizon and become a Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: To Shiryu.
  • Canine Companion: A whole pack of wolves.
  • Fallen Prince: He was the son of one of the most powerful and rich families in Asgard.
  • Freudian Excuse: He hates and mistrust humans because after his parents were killed by a gain bear, he was abandoned by other humans, being rescued by a pack of wolves.
  • Not Good with People: A rather extreme case, bordering on Misanthrope Supreme. His loyalty and care for his wolf pack is absolute, but he hates humans with a burning passion.
  • Raised by Wolves: Literally.
  • Wild Child: Living with wolves, he adopting their life style.
  • Wolverine Claws: His Northern Wolf Pack Claws. Fenrir concentrates his Cosmo in his fists, which then appears to sharpen the claws on his armor, which he uses as a medium when throwing his fists at the speed of light, projecting his claws, ripping through the opponent's body and causing injuries similar to a wolf's claws.

Mizar Zeta Syd

Voiced By: Yuu Mizushima (JP)

  • Always Someone Better: For his twin Alcor.
  • Animal Motifs: Tigers.
  • An Ice Person: His first attack Viking Tiger Claw producing a slight freezing effect in the body of his enemy. In Syd's strongest technique Blue Impulse, after lifting and opening his arms, icebergs appear to his back as a sort of big blue atom is created from his Odin Sapphire, which is released after breaking the ice.
  • Cain and Abel: And maybe one of the most tragic cases ever, as he always knew who Bud was and genuinely cared for him, but could never tell him that he did..
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He faces off with a few of the minor Bronze Saints, dispatching Jabu, Ban, Nachi, Ichi and Geki with a flick of the hand.
  • Separated at Birth: Bud was abandoned by his parents at birth to be raised by a peasant couple. Syd recognized him when they were children and realized their fate as twins.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has green hair.

Alcor Zeta Bud

Voiced By: Yuu Mizushima (JP)

Benethosh Eta Mime

Voiced By: Yuji Mitsuya (JP)

  • Abusive Parents: His adoptive father Volker abused him because he preferred to play the harp rather than fighting. See Self-Made Orphan for more info.
  • Badass Pacifist: Initially Shun could not use their chains to attack, because they did not recognize Mime as an enemy. He easily beats Shun within an inch of his life, and gave such a hell of a fight to Ikki that he collapsed from exhaustion afterwards.
  • Expy: To Lyra Orpheus of the first Saint Seiya movie. He uses the exact same soundtrack.
  • Freudian Excuse: See Abusive Parents.
  • Magic Music: Mime can use his harp to create illusions of himself playing the harp, deceiving the enemy, before proceeding to unleash insanely fast blows only shown as white rays of energy.
  • Musical Assassin: His attack Stringer Requiem. Mime plays his harp, and several strings of Razor Floss are fired at his opponent. The strings begin to strangle the opponent. Mime plays the harp while the sound waves of music, make your opponent has an unbearable pain. When the music reaches the last chord, the opponent dies.
  • Self-Made Orphan: He snaps when Volker tells him that he murdered his biological parents and kills him. Little did he know, though, that it was a part of Volker's Thanatos Gambit: he wanted to both atone for the accidental killing of Mime's family and die in battle instead of his long-time illness, so he put on a Jerk Ass Facade for many years. In reality he always loved Mime like a son, and once risked his own life to get him medical attention, but due to his honor issues he could never show it.
  • Razor Floss: He is prone to laying down these around the environment as traps, as well as send them flying towards his opponents to entangle them. Note that his harp's strings are strong, and sharp enough, to crack and cut through solid rock, as well as Bronze Cloths and the very human skin of the Saints wearing them. These also saved him from a very nasty death at the hands of Shun's Nebula Storm.

    Soul of Gold 

Andreas Rize

Frodi of Gullinbursti

Fafner of Nidhogg

  • Ax-Crazy
  • The Evil Genius: He's seen experimenting with the roots of Yggdrasil.
  • Fate Worse Than Death: Deathmask, knowing that he can't kill Fafner or else Helena's siblings will die, traps his body in the Yomotsu Hirasaka, the entrance to the world of the dead, instead, leaving the bastard between life and death for all of eternity.
  • For the Evulz: Is considered the most vicious and cruel God Warrior.
  • Gonk: The ugliest of the God Warriors.
  • Jerkass: Which makes his final fate at the hands of Deathmask all the more satisfying.
  • Mad Scientist: Fafner is willingly using anything or anyone to use in his experimentations, even humans.

Heracles of Tanngrisnir

  • Badass Armfold
  • The Brute: The strongest and the largest of the seven God Warriors.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Heracles fought Aldebaran twice during the series. Both times, Aldebaran outmatched him.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: Tried to use this to stop Aldebaran from destroying the statue that he's guarding. It didn't work.
  • Evil Counterpart: Towards Aldebaran, right down to using the same pose as him.
  • Ignored Epiphany: Realizes he had lost his way during his final batle with Aldebaran, but chooses to die fighting against him anyways.

Sigmund of Grane

  • BFS / Whip Sword: Concept artwork of his sword shows that yes, it's pretty big and it can bend in a way that resembles a dragon's tail.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Easily defeated by Saga. To put this into perspective, Saga heavily damaged Sigmund's God Robe with a casual unnamed attack as well as being unable to mount a significant enough offensive against the Gold Saint throughout their entire battle.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Once his brother's spirit, through his God Robe, and Saga convince him that vengeance is not what Siegfried would have wanted.
  • It's Personal: He's Siegfried's older brother and considers him a victim of the war between Athena and Poseidon.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The Red towards Surt's Blue.
  • Revenge Before Reason: He knew how Siegfried died, but blames both Athena and Poseidon for his death anyway.

Surt of Eikþyrnir

Balder of Hraesvelgr

Utgardar of Garmr

  • Good All Along: Utgardar was aware of Loki's plot the whole time, thus he took his own life and turned into an Einherjar himself to conceal the Odin Robe inside his own body, which is found by Frodi when he defeated him.
  • Mysterious Past: No one knows a thing about him or where he came from.
  • Meaningful Name: Utgardar is most likely named after Utgarda-Loki, the ruler of the castle Útgarðr in Jötunheimr in the mythology.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Odin. Even when he was resurrected as one of the Einherjar, he remains loyal to Odin by hiding the aforementioned god's God Robe from the Big Bad of the series and allowing Aiolia to use it later on.
