  • Barrier Maiden
  • Batman Gambit: In the manga, at the end of the Hades Saga, Hades revealed that Athena willing allowed Hypnos to put her into the jar in order to make him confident enough to come out of his tomb. The one thing she didn't bank on was Hades still being able to take her on. Luckily, Seiya was there.
