Characters: Saint Seiya Other And Unknown Rank Saints
- Abusive Parents: Is one to Esmeralda, in the anime.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: It is black in the manga.
- Asshole Victim: He was really a cruel man, no surprise that Ikki certainly did not cry for his death.
- But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Acts very nonchalant towards killing his own daughter.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Take a guess...
- Malevolent Masked Men: Of the monster face variant. In the anime, according to Esmeralda, he was a Nice Guy until he put on that mask.
- Mentor Occupational Hazard: To Ikki. When Ikki killed him, he was proud to have taught Ikki to draw power from hate.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast:
- Offing the Offspring: In the anime, where he does not give a damn about his daughter. Poor, POOR Esmeralda.
- Red Oni: To Cepheus Albiore/Daidalos.
- Rule of Drama: Arguably why he was made Esmeralda's father in the anime.
- Training from Hell: Gave it to Ikki. All Saints are put through a very tough training, but Guilty's is just... wow.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty: He teaches Ikki not to have positive feelings and regard for anyone, and to hate everyone and everything.
- The Spartan Way: He use violent and brutal training methods.
Crystal Saint (Anime Only)Voiced By: Michihiro Ikemizu
- Brainwashed and Crazy: The Pope pulled this on him, thus forcing Hyoga to kill him.
- Dying as Yourself / Died in Your Arms Tonight: After being struck to death by Hyoga, he regains control of himself and, as his last act, destroys the ice the pyramid built for Arles by Gigas and collapses into the arms of his pupil. Before giving up the ghost, he asks for forgiveness for what he had done to Hyoga.
- Canon Foreigner: Is the master of Hyoga in the anime and the substitute to Camus in all the flashbacks of the training.
- Good Is Not Dumb: Was also aware that something wrong went on in the Sanctuary, so he tried to talk to the Pope himself. It backfired. Horribly.
- Mentor Occupational Hazard: To Hyoga.
- No Name Given: His real name is unknown.
- The Obi-Wan: To Hyoga, in the anime.
- Waif-Fu: EXTREMELY Rare Male Example. His body is unnaturally flexible without being a Rubber Man, thus he uses his hands and legs to apply the Freezing Fists to Hyoga's almost whole body.
- Shoo Out the New Guy: Due to the anime, which had Over Took The Manga, 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 (a case of They Just Didn't Care ?). It doesn't help that some video games and media keep altering between Camus/Crystal as Hyoga's Master who trained him.
JangoVoiced By: Banjō Ginga
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Ikki defeats him easily.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Half of his face is horribly burned, as you can see.

The Black Saints
Black Pegasus: Shigeru Nakahara
(JP)Black Dragon: Ken Yamaguchi
(JP)Black Cygnus: Rene Garcia
- Black Eyes of Crazy: Black Dragon.
- Clone Degeneration: The real Phoenix Ikki is so evil that there were at least five Black Phoenixes. However, they are a helluva lot weaker than the other Black Saints.
- Dark Is Evil: Not only the cloth, even their attacks are blacks themed.
- Dirty Coward: Black Andromeda attacking Shun when he was trying to rescue an injured Seiya from the bottom of a cliff after his battle with Black Pegasus.
- Evil Twin: They look just 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!
- Evil Counterpart: To Bronze Saint. Kurumada has stated that every Saint (bronze and silver) has a black counterpart.
- Evil Gloating: They do a lot of that.
- Eye Scream: When Black Swan takes out his own eye and sends it to Ikki to inform him of his technique. This is only in the manga.
- Noble Demon: Black Dragon. At the end of their fight, instead of attacking Shiryu, he hit Shiryu's point to stop his bleeding and he says that he wanted to believe in the friendship which Shiryu had spoken during combat, and soon dies after the hit that gave Shiryu before.
- Obviously Evil: Supposedly former Saints (or trainees) who were stripped from their title and Cloth and banned from the Sanctuary for using their strength for personal gain, turning to a life of crime and violence.
- Paint It Black: They are like the Bronze Saints, but evil!
- Poison Is Evil: What makes Black Pegasus different than Seiya. The difference is that shortly after hitting its target (through their Cloth), there are dark spots all over the body of the ending completely covering it, causing the sensation of burning himself from within. Once the body of the enemy is completely black, they die.
- The Psycho Rangers: To the Bronze Saints. They managed to produce copies of Athena's Cloths, but as they lacked the knowledge and the permission of the Goddess, those Black Cloths are somewhat inferior to the original Cloths, being easily shattered by the blows of a Bronze Saint.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Black Andromeda has green hair.
Geist (Anime Only)Voiced By: Chiyoko Kawashima

- Muscles Are Meaningless: 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.
- Not Drawn to Scale: At the end of one episode, he was holding Saori around her waist with ONE HAND and Tatsumi in the other. (It seems Shingo Araki likes these a lot, and that It Runs in the Family since Cassios did the same to Seiya)
