Calling Your Attacks Ryūsei Ken (Meteor Punch), Eagle Toe Rush, Kūken (Empty Fist)
  • Action Girl: In the manga she and Shaina are seen to be equal in power.
    • Faux Action Girl: In the Anime where she had to be rescued and lost almost every battle, doesn't stop her from kicking the ass of a Silver Saint who could read minds and had just defeated Seiya with ease.
    • Lady of War
    • Leotard of Power: Very visible considering that her cloth covers a little bit of the wearers body.
    • Cool Mask: Like all female Saints has to cover her face with a mask to renounce her female side.
  • Animal Motifs: Eagles.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Calling Your Attacks Medusa Shield, Ra's Al Ghûl Gorgonio
  • 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".
  • Badass: Takes out over half of the five main Bronze Saints on his own. Petrifies both Seiya and Shun and the only way he could be defeated was for Shiryu to gouge out his own eyes.
    • In the anime, add the Steel Saints. They started okay against him, but he still managed to beat them until Shiryu blinds himself and gains the upper hand.
  • Blond Guys Are Evil: One of the toughest and cruelest Saints among Athena's entire Army.
  • 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.
  • 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 
Anime Version
Manga Version

Cepheus Albiore (Anime Only)

Cepheus Daidalos (Manga Only)

Voiced By: Keiichi Noda (JP)
Birthdate: April 30
Birthplace: Argentina
Training Ground: Ethiopia(Andromeda Island)
Height: 1.87m/6'1''
Weight: 89 kg/196lbs
  • 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.
  • Badass: Albiore nearly defeated Scorpio Milo! Then Pisces Aphrodite lent a hand...
  • Blond Guys Are Evil: Averted, Shun regards him as very kind as well as the fact that he took a neutral stance to protect his other students as well as to avoid fighting 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 just a gender-flipped, blonde 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.
    • Fridge Brilliance: Argentinians are considered to be quite paler/whiter than the average Latin-American, sine the country was host to the second biggest wave of European immigration in the world until the 19th century. Suddenly, Albiore being a blond makes quite more sense than it seems at first...
  • 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.
  • The Obi-Wan: To Shun.
  • 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.

     Lyra Orphée 
Voiced By: Hiroshi Kamiya (JP)
Calling Your Attacks:Stringer Nocturne, Stringer Finé, and Death-Trip Serenade
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: He's blond in the manga and has a pink Cloth.
  • Badass: 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.
  • Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: With Eurydice.
  • 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: His lyre can put others to sleep and works as a deadly weapon.
  • Musical Assassin
    • 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.
  • 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.
