  • Big Bad: Of the first movie.
  • Blade on a Stick: She has a spear. Which is thrown at Hyoga, but misses and hits one of her own men.
  • Conveniently an Orphan: Eri is an orphan, just like Seiya, his sister Seika, and Miho.
  • Demonic Possession: The goddess Eris took control over Eri's body until she could be completely revived into this world again.
  • Evil Counterpart: Eris to Athena herself.
  • Evil Makeover: When Eris took control over Eri's body...
  • Grand Theft Me: In the Italian dub of the movie she wants to kill Athena to use the latter body as a host, not simply to drain her energy from her.

  • Soul Jar: Her apple. She dies when Seiya destroys the apple.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Eris has blue hair.

Ghost Saint Orion Jäger

Voiced By: Yuu Mizushima (JP)

  • The Ace: One of the few warriors who can proudly admit they single-handedly kicked both Seiya and Ikki's asses at the same time.
  • Back from the Dead: Is a Saint resurrected by Eris.
  • Blood Knight: Ikki accuses him of being this, fighting for the sake of fighting, and not so much for bringing good to the world.
  • Badass Cape: Comes complete with a cape that he used against Seiya.
  • Calling Your Attack: MEGATON METEOR CRASH!
  • Evil Counterpart: To Ikki. Lampashaded by Ikki that found his foe's strength to be almost equal to his.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: His attack, the Megaton Meteor Crash. It's hard to describe. He curls up into a ball to charge up and then follows up with a kick.
  • Fallen Hero: He is said to be one of the most powerful Silver Saints who served Athena with honor. But after he was killed, he held a grudge over being forgotten, and the loneliness that comes with being dead.
  • Worthy Opponent: With his last words, he commends Seiya and the Bronze Saints as true warriors.

Ghost Saint Southern Cross Kristos

Voiced By: Ryusei Nakao (JP)

  • Back from the Dead: Is a Saint resurrected by Eris.
  • Calling Your Attack: SOUTHERN CROSS THUNDERBOLT!. Christ shifts his arms into an L shape with the left one lying down. He then dashes forward with his Cosmo charged.
  • Dub Name Change: In order to avoid religious controversies, his name was changed to "Crayfuss" in the Spanish dub and "Krakus" in the Latin American dub.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Hyoga, since the Cygnus constellation is also referred to as the Northern Cross.
  • Flat Character: He barely shows any personality during his fight with Hyoga.
  • Human Popsicle: Hyoga traps him in the ice, but not completely.
  • Murder by Mistake: From Eris when she tried to hit Hyoga with a spear and he was in the way, poor guy.

Ghost Saint Lyra Orpheus

Voiced By: Yūji Mitsuya (JP)

  • Back from the Dead: Is a Saint resurrected by Eris.
  • Fountain of Expies: His character design and attack style are used afterwards for Benetnasch Mime (Asgard God Warrior in the Asgard anime filler-arc) and the Silver Saint Lyra Orphee in the Hades arc.
  • Musical Assassin: The first in the franchise. The his weapon is a lyre.
  • Razor Floss: His Stringer Requiem. Here, the lyre's strings entangles Orpheus' opponent and leaves his victim at his mercy.
  • Retcon: He was supposed to be the Orpheus from the Greek mythology. But in the Hades Arc appear another similar saint, Lyra Orphee. Considering that the events in the first movie are non-canonical to Kurumada's true manga plot, Lyra Orphéee is thus the true incarnation of the Lyra Saint.
  • 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.

     The Heated Battle of the Gods (Movie 2) 

Gothi Dolbr

Voiced By: Iemasa Kayumi (JP)

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Dolbr can create shock waves of great destructive power, capable of hitting the target from great distances. Moreover, according to Pegasus Seiya, he moves faster than the Gold Saints.
  • Big Bad: Of second movie.
  • High Priest: Is the Gothi, the representative of Odin on Earth.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is an anagram/reverse of Baldr, who was a revered god of good. This is a hint to his true nature as an evil man.
  • Mind Rape: It is implied that has used this on Hyoga.
  • Retcon: When the Asgard Saga appeared in the anime, Polaris Hilda became Odin's Representative, with the events of the movie removed from continuity.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: He uses a technique called "Odin Sealed" on Athena to trap her in another dimension.

God Warrior Fenrir Loki

Voiced By: Yuu Mizushima (JP)

God Warrior Surtr Ullr

Voiced By: Akira Murayama (JP)

God Warrior Thrymr Rung

Voiced By: Tesshô Genda (JP)

  • The Brute: The biggest and brutal of Dolbr's warriors.
  • Dual Wielding: His twin big boomerangs.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He is killed by his own boomerang thanks to Ikki's Mind Rape powers.
  • Last Ditch Move: When Ikki is busy rescuing Shun, Rung draws strength for one last attack, nailing a boomerang in the torso of Ikki and Shun and throwing him to the cliff. Shun and Ikki manages to save themselves, but Rung was not so lucky.

  • Heroic Sacrifice: Frey sacrifices himself to end the reign of Dolbr and to save Saori.

     Legend of Crimson Youth (Movie 3) 


Voiced By: Taichirou Hirokawa (JP)

  • Attack Reflector: Like most deities in Saint Seiya, he has the inherent power to reflect (almost) any attack directed against him.
  • A God Am I: Invoked by him at the very end. With the blasphemous implication that he is THE God above all others.
  • Back from the Dead: He resurrected the fallen Gold Saints and bound them to his service and will. Seiya was utterly indignant at this act.
  • Big Bad: Of the third movie.
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Saori's Abel. (Dramatic irony definitely intended; see below) He believes mankind is beyond saving, his sister begs to differ, things get murdery.
  • Captain Ersatz: A rather unique case. He's one to Phoebus Apollo and/or Helios, not due to copyright reasons, but (apparently) because Kurumada didn't want to use the former unless it was during the Heaven's/Zeus' Saga.
  • Elegant Classical Musician: He plays a lyre to exalt his heavenly nature.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: To Saori when she reveals her true intentions of protecting the human race and declares herself an enemy to her brother.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He seems genuinely sad and distraught after killing Saori when she reveals her true intentions of protecting the human world. He also was willing to spare Hyoga, on the condition that he builds an ice coffin for Saori (to preserve her beauty).
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: He's remarkably attractive, even by this series' standards, as he radiates with an aura of celestial beauty and grace. It heavily contrasts with his cruel and uncaring nature, and his ultimately apocalyptic and self-serving goals.
  • Flanderization: He has a small role in the fourth movie, but without the somewhat melancholic personality he had in the third movie, appearing as a generic evil spirit.
  • Invincible Villain: Until the end when Sagittarius Seiya gathers everyone's Cosmo to stop Abel from sending Athena to Elysion, or until the last moment when he concentrates his full Cosmo in a golden arrow that he shoots at Abel, he is totally invulnerable to any and all attacks. Everyone is plain horrified at Seiya attempting such a thing against Abel of all people. Justified since he is a God.
  • Leitmotif: A sublime and discordantly gentle piece simply called Abel's Theme. As previously mentioned, he even plays in-story for dramatic effect.
  • Light Is Not Good: He is the God of the Sun, and intends to obliterate the Earth and the human race.
  • Long Lost Sibling: Of Athena, when he discovered that she was now living as Kido Saori.
  • Telepathy: As stated by Berenike, humans' hearts and minds are an open-book to him, Saori included.
  • Nightmare Face: In the last moments of the movie, when facing Seiya, he mostly has this impassible expression on his face, but the lighting effects as his eyes flash with power or when he attacks the Saints result in his face looking quite scary and unforgiving.
  • Religious and Mythological Theme Naming: As evident due to his relationship with Saori, he's named after the biblical "Cain and Abel" story.
  • Unperson: He was erased from history as a punishment for his ambition and arrogance... And due to self-preservation matters it seems, as his power was said to rival that of Zeus himself.
  • Worthy Opponent: Before dying he ends up feeling respect for Seiya, though he does not quite understand the feeling and tries to prevent himself from acknowledging it, the contradiction jolting him into attacking Seiya as he unleashes his arrow.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has blue hair.

Corona Saint Carina Atlas

Voiced By: Akira Kamiya (JP)

  • Blasting Time: When casting his attack, Atlas raises his arms above his head and crosses his wrists, surrounding himself with solar cosmos, which wraps forming a spiral. Then he hurls this energy, concentrated as a scorching globe, towards its target by suddenly and violently whipping his arms forward.
  • Calling Your Attack: BURNING CORONA!
  • Dirty Coward: On the way back, Atlas hits Ikki and Shun with his Burning Corona after the defeat of Aphrodite.
  • Karmic Death: After being a proud and arrogant bastard through the whole movie, and taking his sweet time to inflict physical and psychological torture and humiliation upon Athena's Saints, especially Seiya, Atlas meets his end in an inglorious and swift manner as Seiya pierces his heart with a single Pegasus Sui Sei Ken.
  • Smug Super: Is confident in his strength and convinced of the superiority of the Corona Saints over Athena's Saints.
  • The Dragon: The most powerful warrior under Abel, and the last one to be defeated.
  • Playing with Fire / The Power of the Sun: The Burning Corona is a fiery ball of solar energy, which Atlas creates by raising his arms, summoning a raging spiral of fiery death, and then hurling his arms forward in a violent manner. The burning orb, similar in appearance to a small sun, causes the enemy to burst in flames as its explodes from within them, causing serious (or fatal) damage to the victim.

Corona Saint Coma Berenices

Voiced By: Toshio Furukawa (JP)

  • Dirty Coward: Berenice uses his Death Golden Hair on Shiryu after he defeated Cancer Deathmask.
  • Human Popsicle: At first, Berenices seems completely immune to cold attacks. But in a final surge of willpower, Hyoga launched an attack that froze him completely.
  • The Power of the Sun: Invoked when he shows that he can melt ice like nothing.
  • Prehensile Hair: He uses this ability as his main offensive method, with the plus of being able to launch a burning wave through the filaments.
    • Razor Floss: His hairs are able to trap and disrupt the enemy.
  • Repetitive Name: (Coma) Berenices Berenike, which despite being written differently, are spoken the same if you go for the Latin pronunciation.

     Warriors of the Holy Battle (Movie 4) 


  • Ambition Is Evil: His ambition is become the highest among all Gods.
  • Big Bad: Of the fourth movie.

He was subsequently defeated, and then banished from heaven along with his followers.
  • Sadist: He finds pleasure in inflicting pain and suffering to others.
  • Satan: In Christianity, the name of Lucifer is one of the alternate names for Satan, due to his former radiance and beauty as an angel of God (see above). He is first overpowered by Archangel Michael, helped by Athena and the eastern god Marishitien.
