     Eagle/Aquila Marin
Voiced By: Yuriko Yamamoto (JP), Mónica Manjarrez (Latin America), Christine Auten (ADV English), Selica Torcal and Virginia Carrera (Spain)

  • Action Girl: In the manga she and Shaina are seen to be equal in power.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In the Anime she frequently has to be rescued and loses almost every battle she stars in including a friendly sparring match against Shaina (despite being stated as her equal)and even to several enemies beyond Silver Saint level including a washout who was disqualified from eligiability to Sainthood.
  • Animal Motifs: Eagles.
  • Calling Your Attacks:
    • Ryūsei Ken (Meteor Punch). Her main attack. She hits with her fist hundreds times in one second to generate a punch burst, much like a meteor shower. This is the technique she taught Seiya.
    • Eagle Toe Rush. She used this attack to beat Hound Asterion, and it's like a really hard flying kick.
  • Cool Mask: Like all female Saints has to cover her face with a mask to renounce her female side.
  • Designated Girl Fight: In the anime with Shaina where Marin gets her butt kicked with soldiers watching. Strangely averted in the Manga.
  • Fake Defector: When she tried to protect Seiya by pretending to kill him and then burying him on the beach.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: Her armor only has spauldrons on her left side.
  • Fiery Redhead: Averted, she's strongwilled but nowhere as impulsive as Seiya.
  • Good Is Not Dumb: One of the few Silver Saints to distrust the Pope.
  • Leotard of Power: Very visible considering that her cloth covers a little bit of the wearers body.
  • Long-Lost Relative: Memorably subverted... she was very strongly hinted to be the grown-up Seika, but she wasn't. It's revealed her real little brother is called Toma and he is one of the god's Angels, because he wanted to become a god.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: Averted for now, but she's had a few close calls from having Seiya as a student.
  • Red Herring: At the end of the series, it turned out that she was never Seiya's missing sister after all.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Blue Oni to Shaina.
  • Sexy Mentor: To Seiya.
  • Ship Tease: With Aiolia. In episode G, Aiolia is the one who seems to have a crush on her; however in the anime it is the other way around.
  • Spanner in the Works: She derails Aphrodite's Batman Gambit by putting her mask on Seiya and pulling him away from the rose path. This allows Seiya to breath normally and recover his strength, thus giving him the resolve to destroy it.
  • Two Girls to a Team: Both her and Shaina.
  • The Worf Effect: Despite being Seiya's mentor, the only battle she has won was against Asterion.

     Lacerta Misty
Voiced By: Yuu Mizushima (JP), Salvador Delgado (Latin America), Serge Bourrier (FR)

  • Afraid of Blood: He goes to the sea and begins to wash it off. Seiya demands he fights him but first...
  • Agent Peacock: Masami Kurumada created Misty in the stereotypical manga/anime androgynous beautiful character (bishounen) model. Misty is one of the most androgynous characters that appears in Saint Seiya.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Indeed he does not seem interested to men or woman. but only to himself.
  • Animal Motifs: The Lizard.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Misty was very proud of his status of being a Silver Saint, dismissed the Bronze Saints as something he could easily wipe out. But astonishingly not so much after Seiya defeated him.
  • Barbie Doll Anatomy: In the famous bath scene.
  • Barrier Warrior: With his Air Shield Misty vibrates his hand to create a barrier, which would be able to shield himself from attacks.
  • Back from the Dead: Anime only. Misty had been resurrected by Hades and went with Babel and Moses to Siberia were Cygnus Hyoga was. They tried to defeat him but was easily overpowerd by Hyoga's chilly ice.
  • Calling Your Attacks:
    • Mavrou Trippa. Meaning "Black Hole" in Greek, an attack using two fingers to create a violent wind swirl.
    • Air Shield. Misty vibrates his hand to create a barrier, which would be able to shield himself from attacks.
  • Cradling Your Kill: Got this from Seiya. After Seiya defeated him, he carried Misty, and in bridal style at that. Just look.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: In the manga he was the one to kill Ikki the first time and blow up Mt. Fuji in the process.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: And has a lady's name too. With long hair to match. You decide whether he or the female Saints and Saori is prettier.
  • The Fighting Narcissist: Misty is a narcissist who considered himself inferior only to the goddess Athena herself.
  • Genre Savvy: When Marin apparently kills Seiya before his eyes he quips that he didn't think she had it in her to kill her apprentice... Then talks Marin into leaving and digs up Seiya from his grave, as he still didn't think she had it in her to kill her apprentice. Justified in the anime, as a previous encounter between Seiya and Shaina had ended with Marin "claiming" the right to execute her "traitorous apprentice only to save his life and Shaina had warned Misty about a possible repeat.
  • Graceful Loser: Surprisingly. Misty appeared rather arrogant so it would be normal to expect him to be a Sore Loser. But after Seiya landed a fatal blow on him, he just calmly said that probably he had been wrong all along about his obsession of not getting wounded, then died peacefully with a smile.
  • Hero of Another Story: Saint Seiya Episode G shows he has at least six years of experience destroying monsters before his fatal mission in Tokyo.
  • Naked People Are Funny: Nobody expected Misty to actually strip in the middle of his fight. The moment was so popular, that they actually turned naked Misty into a Myth Cloth Figure... in 2011!
  • Person of Mass Destruction: In the manga he destroyed Mount Fuji.
  • Pride Before a Fall: Starts the fight off by bragging how he had never been struck in battle.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Wears a pink sleeveless suit in the anime version. Despite everything, he's still one of the most powerful silver saints.
  • Screw Yourself: Given that Misty only likes himself, if he ever falls in love, it will probably be with his reflection in the water.
  • Shameless Fanservice Guy: He had no problem stripping stark naked and taking a bath in the middle of the fight just to clean a small drop of blood on his neck. Seiya was understandably not amused. Although, as Misty thinks he's the prettiest, he probably did this also to encourage Seiya to look at his body.
  • Sympathy for the Devil: Seiya regrets killing him as, in his opinion, he had what it takes to be a hero. To be fair, Misty spent his last moments calmly walking out of the sea water and acknowledging his defeat as well as Seiya's merits before falling dead on the sand. Which is why Seiya gives him a Bridal Carry and lay him neatly on the sand as a way to honor him.

     Cetus/Kaitos/Whale Moses
Voiced By: Koji Totani (JP)

     Hound Asterion
Voiced By: Kazuo Hayashi (JP), Gerardo Reyero (Latin America)

  • Animal Motifs: Dogs/Hounds.
  • Calling Your Attacks:
    • Satori no ho. Although not an attack per se, with it he can anticipate his enemies' movements, allowing him to easily counter their attacks. He used his ability against Marin, anticipating his moves and directing Moses' attacks and later againts Seiya. The skill is useless if the enemy can create a vacuum in the mind, which Marin did to defeat him.
    • Million Ghosts Attack. Asterion has the ability to multiplicate himself, and all of his replicas attack at once with a single energy blast.
  • Doppelgänger Attack: His Million Ghost Attack. See above.
  • Psychic Powers: Can read minds. More specifically, Telepathy. In her only anime victory, Marin has to completely clear her mind to kill him.
  • Put on a Bus: Manga Only. In the anime Marin kills him but in the manga, she tells him she is disappointed that he of all people would accept the Pope and tells him to go and confront him. However, his Bus Crash in the Hades Saga: there is a tombstone with his name on it. We can only assume his meeting with the Pope did not go well.
  • Blue Oni: Blue to Moses.

     Centaurus Babel
Voiced By: Yuji Mikimoto (JP)

  • Adaptational Badass: While in the manga he is easily defeated by Hyoga, the anime adaptation made him powerful enough to hold his own against the five bronze saints.
  • Back from the Dead: Anime only. In the Hades arc, Babel had been resurrected by Hades and went with Lizard Misty and Whale Mozes to Siberia where Hyoga was. They tried to defeat him but were easily overpowerd by Hyoga's chilly ice.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Fotia Roufihtra.
  • Go Out with a Smile and Peaceful in Death: Anime version. When he found out that Saori was the true Athena, he aknowledged her and got to hold her hand.
  • One-Man Army: In the Anime, he was giving the five main protagonist quite some troubles until the Steel Saints step in. Up until then, Hyoga was the only one wearing his cloth at the moment (besides Seiya, who was still recovering from a previous battle) and was barely holding him off.
  • Out of the Inferno: His entrance, in the Grado Colosseum, in the anime.
  • Playing with Fire: He attacks con his flames.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: After the Tower of Babel from the Bible.
  • Shoulders of Doom: How does he manage to walk through a doorway with them?

     Corvus Jamian

     Perseus Algol
Voiced By: Akira Kamiya (JP), Serge Bourrier(FR), Vicente Martinez (Spain)

  • Back from the Dead: In the anime adaptation, Algol, along with Auriga Capella and Kerberos Dante, was resurrected from the dead by Hades. They were sent to kill Shiryu and Dohko. They attacked Shiryu that deafeat all them with his "Rozan Shoryu Ha".
  • Calling Your Attacks: R'has Al'Ghul Gorgoneio (which means "Head of the Ghoul Gorgoneion"). He leaps high into the air while he creates an illusion of tons of serpents and forces himself into his victim with a mighty kick, likely stronger than a regular kick due to it's height, and possible Cosmo energy use.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Relied heavily on it from the beginning of the battle to the end when Shiryu's fist punched through it and into his heart.
  • No Ontological Inertia: The shield's power works even if the target closes or covers their eyes, because it passes through blindfold and eyelid, and goes directly into the retinas.
  • Nothing Up My Sleeve: His Medusa Shield on his back.
  • One-Man Army: Petrifies both Seiya and Shun and, in the anime, manage to beat the Steel Saints trio. The only way he could be defeated was for Shiryu to gouge out his own eyes.
  • Stellar Name: After the bright star from the Perseus Constellation. Algol is also named the Demon Star.
  • Taken for Granite: Algol can use the legendary Medusa Shield (based on the Greek mythological monster, Medusa), that can transform anyone who looks directly to it into stone.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He petrifies and then smashes three kids who tried to run away from the Sanctuary, after having promised he would let them go. Aioria calls him out on it, but Perseus doesn't care.
    • Not to mention, the Saints he petrifies and the one who defeats and kills him are between 13 and 15 years old. If we count the Steel Saints too, then the age limit is even lower.

     Cepheus Albiore/Cepheus Daidalos 

Cepheus Albiore (Anime Only) / Cepheus Daidalos (Manga Only)
Anime Version
Manga Version
Voiced By: Keiichi Noda (JP)

  • Adaptational Attractiveness: In the anime, he had long blond hair and blue eyes and his Cloth was far more elaborate. To be fair, Cepheus Daidalos' name and design weren't finalized by the time the anime episode debuted.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Short black hair in the manga, long blond hair in the anime.
  • Ascended Extra: In the manga, Daidalos only appeared in one chapter, he only had June and Shun as his trainees. While he was described as strong, he died easily with Aphrodite standing over his body. Aphrodite himself could barely remember it. In the anime, Albiore was in five episodes, as strong as a Gold Saint, more handsome, had several students, and a couple of extra scenes including one where he taught the cosmos to Shun.
  • Blue Oni: To Guilty, both versions.
  • Boring, but Practical: Albiore's Cloth design. Unlike the other Cloth designs that have super elaborate folds or form the shape of animals or objects his is just a straight up suit. However, except for the headgear, it covers up just as well as a Gold Cloth.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Adverted, both versions. He is the only Saint in the entire series that hasn't shown his own signature technique.
  • Defiant to the End: Both stood up for Shun.
  • Dual Wielding: Albiore.
  • Good Is Not Dumb: One of the few Silvers to not trust the Pope. Hence why he was killed.
  • Identical Stranger: Just like Esmeralda is simple a blonde a gender-flipped Shun, Daidalos is an older version of Ikki (Manga only).
  • Latino Is Brown: Averted with Albiore, who was born in Argentina. Difficult to say about Daidalos since the manga is in black and white.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: Both versions.
  • Mr. Exposition and/or Captain Obvious (take your pick): Albiore. Did he really need to explain the myth of Andromeda on a place called Andromeda Island right before Shun was about to take his test?
  • Mythological Name: Daidalos. After the Mythical Greek Inventor/Craftsman/Artisan.
  • Not the Fall That Kills You: Albiore. Was thrown into the sky from Milo's initial attack and somehow fought evenly with him afterwards.
  • Parental Substitute: Both symbolically and literally.
  • Posthumous Character
    • Sacrificial Lamb: The writers needed a good reason for Shun to purposely kill someone.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Daidalos? Didaros? Daidaros? Dedalo? Albiore? Alviore? Albion? Albione? Arubiore?
  • Variable-Length Chain: In the anime, and one of his chains ends in a Cool Cross too!
  • When He Smiles: Albiore. Stiff and nonchalant until Shun showed him his true strength.

     Sagitta Ptolemy
Voiced By: Michitaka Kobayashi (JP)

     Lyra Orphée
Voiced By: Hiroshi Kamiya (JP)

  • The Ace: His control of the Cosmo was so great that he gained the reputation of being above the level of Gold Saints, a reputation that even a lower ranking Bronze Saint like Seiya was aware of. It's also hinted that Orphée has awakened the Eighth Sense by the fact that he went into the Underworld remaining alive.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: He's blond in the manga and has a pink Cloth.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: With Eurydice.
  • Calling Your Attacks:
    • Stringer Nocturne: This deadly attack uses the strings of his lyre to send electric shocks through his opponent, thus trapping them in "a nighttime spiral which leads to death."
    • Stringer Fine: The last of Orphée's Melodies, similar to Benetnasch Mime's "String Requiem". Here, the lyre's strings trap and shred anything of Orphée's choosing.
    • Death-Trip Serenade: Here, he uses a requiem to send his opponents to sleep for days, or well into eternal somnolence.
  • Death by Flashback: Received more back story of his origins than most of the main characters before getting killed.
  • Defiant to the End
  • Expy: Of the Ghost Saint Lyra Orpheus from first movie.
  • Flower Motifs: Every time he runs, attacks, heck just about everything he does, flower petals rain all over the place.
    • The area he stays at in the Underworld is the only place to find flowers with the exception of the Fields of Elisium.
    • His gift for Hades was a trunk full of flowers with two Saints ready to assassinate the Lord of the Underworld.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Orphée sacrificed his body to give Seiya a good shot at Rhadamanthys. Seiya reluctantly threw his Pegasus Ryusei Ken at both Rhadamanthys and the fatally injured Lyra Saint.
  • Living Legend: His first appearance had Shun and Seiya gushing about how powerful and legendary he was among Saint lore.
  • Magic Music / Musical Assassin: Both. His lyre can put others to sleep and works as a deadly weapon.
  • Razor Floss: The string of his lyre that work as weapon.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: In the colored version of the manga, his Cloth is light pink.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: After Orpheus from Greek Mythology. It is not explicitedly stated that Lyra Orphée and the Orpheus of Greek mythologies are one and the same, though their respective stories occurred in different timelines.
  • Reluctant Warrior: Orphée never felt all that interested in his fighting abilities; rather, he enjoyed devoting his free time playing lyre for various audiences.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": The only Saint where people mix up his Cloth that he represents.
    • Lyre: English name for the instrument that Orpheus carries.
    • Lyra: The constellation he is based on.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Eurydice.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Hey, remember how awesome Lyra Orpheus was in the first movie? Let's give him the same attacks, same music, but make him lighter and not evil this time around and a french name.
  • Taking You with Me: With Rhadamanthys. Attempted anyway.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has light blue hair.
