Characters from Saint Seiya Omega.
A low-rank Martian sent to tail Kouga and Souma until both boys noticed him. He initially overwhelms them his his power of darkness, until Kouga awakens his Cosmo power of Light and defeat him. Ordykia fled from them to report the situation, but was executed by Mars for his failure.
- Cannon Fodder: Beaten in his introductory episode, by Bronze trainees no less. Being on the wrong end of Elemental RockPaperScissors didn't help, mind you.
- Casting a Shadow
- Meaningful Name: Ordykia is a play on the greek name of the italian island Ortygia.
- Starter Villain
- Spell My Name with an "S": Oldykia and Ordykia, the later seems more accurate due a Shout-Out.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Dispatched by Mars once he failed his mission.
Hornet Scorpio Sonia
Mars's daughter, and a high-ranking officer in his army. Killed Souma's father.
- Ambiguously Brown: It's the most obvious that she has a darker complexion than the rest of her family in episode 40.
- Big Sister Instinct: Towards Eden, in flashbacks.
- Break the Cutie: Her backstory. Turns out that battling Athena's Saints in her father's glorious army wasn't quite as fun as she thought it'd be.
- Casting a Shadow: As is standard for Martians.
- Child Soldier: She had an early start in the Martian army. Too early.
- Co-Dragons: With her step-mother, Medea.
- Combat Pragmatist: No stranger to dirty fighting and psychological warfare, in case she wasn't dangerous enough already.
- Cool Mask: Despite being a Martian, she wears the mask of a female Saint. Given the game Mars is playing, it seems to be an attempt to show willing and play nice with her allies' traditions.
- She gets a new mask after donning the Scorpio Cloth.
- Daddy's Little Villain
- Dark Action Girl: And a very dangerous one at that.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She legitimately cares for her family, and would do anything to keep them safe.
- Femme Fatalons/Wolverine Claws: The fingertips of her gauntlets are pointed and very, very sharp.
- Ignored Epiphany: Comes within inches of a HeelFace Turn during her final fight with Souma, but eventually decides that the needs of her family outweigh her own.
- It Gets Easier: Her attitude towards killing Saints. Mostly because it couldn't be any harder than her first kill.
- Love Martyr: She lives only for her family, and places no value on her own life. It's hinted that Medea gave her a bit of a nudge in this direction.
- Red Baron: The Gold Saint of Judgement and Discipline.
- Relative Button: She deliberately pushes Souma's, knowing that his ensuing Unstoppable Rage will make him lose control of his own Cosmo.
- Storm of Blades/Flechette Storm: Her signature attack, Hornet Stinger, is basically a miniature version of daddy's Gungnir. See below.
- Sympathetic Murderer: Despite her target being as far as possible from an Asshole Victim. Being a Child Soldier just really, really sucks.
- Taking You with Me: Tries this on Souma after it becomes clear that she won't beat him any other way. He doesn't bite it, but despite his best efforts, she does.
- Tragic Keepsake: An unusual one. She keeps Southern Cross Kazuma's Cloth Stone as a reminder of her traumatic first kill.
- Tragic Villain: All she ever wanted was to be useful to her family, and it takes an appalling toll on her.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Flashbacks show that little Sonia was a happy, energetic Genki Girl. Then stuff happened.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Part of her motivation stems from a desire to defend her father and step mother. Medea doesn't care, her father does.
Mars' son and Sonia's little brother. Mars expects him to participate in his plan, which he does only reluctantly. Unlike his father and his sister, he doesn't wield Dark Cosmo, preferring his Thunder-elemental Orion Cloth.
Tropes of this character should go to the Orion Eden entry in the Bronze Saints section.
- Abusive Parents: Not Eden, but to Sonia. Granted she did mention she planned on fixing Eden later after he refused to be part of the new world, but when push came to shove, she couldn't quite make herself do it, and ended up Taking the Bullet for him shortly afterwards.
- Big Bad: The real one. Mars was just a pawn to her, and one she was happy to discard once he'd stopped being useful.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: To Eden and Mars.
- Co-Dragons: To Mars, with her step-daughter Sonia.
- The Corrupter: To Mars and Ionia. She played on their noble goal of healing the Earth and relieving Athena's suffering, and turned it into a recipe for genocide. It's even more insidious with Mars—his critical flashback heavily implies she's covertly responsible for transforming the former Ludwig into the God of War in the first place.
- Enigmatic Minion: Hinted to have her own agenda before its confirmed.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She cares neither for her stepdaughter Sonia nor her brother Amor, but she will, when push comes to shove, sacrifice her life for her biological son Eden.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: She's genuinely upset when her son, Eden, tells her that he still wants to save the earth. Also, she seems to hate the Light and wants a world of Darkness.
- Evil Counterpart: To Saori/Athena.
- Evil Is Not Well-Lit: Spends a lot of her time in dark rooms.
- Evil Matriarch
- Expy: Of Pandora initially. Then we find out that she's The Man Behind the Man and responsible for most of the series' events so far.
- Half Truth: Her comments to a young Eden about how his father has had to carry the suffering of the world. She was most likely like she was talking about Abzu since she worships the dark. At the time Abzu's darkness was a part of Mars.
- Hot Witch
- Karmic Death: The final phase in her plan was to have Eden use Aria's staff to control Abzu, essentially sealing his position as the god-king of the new world. When this didn't work she had to sacrifice herself in order to prevent Abzu from killing her son. This never would have happened had she not been such a Manipulative Bitch, or had she simply quit while she was ahead.
- Kick the Son of a Bitch: Her repeated betrayals of family members are perhaps her worst acts in the series, but when it's her creepy, psychotic brother Amor's turn to get the knife in the back, it's hard to feel too bad about it.
- Lack of Empathy: Feels nothing for anyone except her own son Eden. So she allows her stepdaughter, husband, and brother to get killed when it fulfills her plans.
- Lady Macbeth
- Makeup Is Evil
- Redemption Equals Death: After spending most of her screentime as the single most evil character in the series, finally shows another side to herself by Taking the Bullet for Eden.
- Surveillance as the Plot Demands: She uses several crystal balls to spy over the main characters.
- Taking the Bullet: Finally resolves the long-standing question of whether she actually cared for her son by throwing herself in front of one of Abzu's attacks to save him.
- Treacherous Advisor / The Man Behind the Man : Mars actually believes in his ideals and has some sense of compassion and sadness for Sonia and Mycenae's deaths. She doesn't care at all, and it's heavily implied she's been manipulating Mars the entire time and has much darker end results in mind than he believes.
- The huge backstory reveal showing that she summoned the Erebus meteor responsible for bringing Abzu's dark Cosmo down to earth, her complete lack of care about her husband's death, and her willingness to cast aside her own brother without hesitation, all outright confirm her as being these two tropes.
- Unholy Matrimony: With Mars.
- Walking Spoiler: Think she's just Mars's Love Interest and magical backup? Think again.
- Wicked Stepmother: Whilst most of her evil is more outwardly-directed, she's noticeably more harsh and distant to her stepdaughter Sonia than her biological son, Eden. Comes to a head when she sacrifices Sonia just to slow Team Kouga down a little.
- I Have No Son!: Says that Sonia could never be her child after she fails to defeat Souma.
Four Heavenly Kings of MarsFour Generals who fought for Mars in the past against the Saints. After a fierce battle that nearly resulted in the defeat of the Saints, Saori intervened and struck them all with her power. This caused the four to enter a deep slumber to survive. Amor summons them in the Pisces Temple to kill Souma, Haruto, and Ryuuhou.
Tropes to them as a whole:
- Badass Cape: In the second opening.
- Casting a Shadow
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience: All four wear armor that partially matches their element. The capes they wear in the Opening match it even better though.
- The Faceless
- Four Is Death
- Glowing Eyes of Doom
- The Quiet One: Other than grunts and saying their special attacks they do not speak.
- Theme Naming: All Four are named after figures from Roman mythology.
- Tin Tyrant
- Worf Had the Flu: Possibly. They started out doing very well against the saints, but then Kouga oneshots Bacchus using his darkness Cosmo and the other Bronzes defeat them easily when using the Seventh Sense. Might be justified as well considering they've been slumbering/sealed away for years and still have the attack Saori inflicted on them stuck in their body.
- Wound That Will Not Heal: They still have the shards of light from Saori's attack stuck in their bodies.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning
- Good Old Fisticuffs
- Making a Splash
- Super Strength: Drinks his element water before unleashing strong attacks.
- The Worf Effect: Got inflicted with this hard once Kouga uses his darkness Cosmo to completely annihilate him.
- Playing with Fire
- Sinister Scythe: The end of the chains can have sickles on them.
- Variable-Length Chain
- Purple Is Powerful: Wears a purple cape and has purple hair.
- Ambiguously Human: The Pallasites look perfectly human, and they are known to recruit exceptionally gifted humans like Paradox and Tokisada, but it's implied that all the Class-1 and at least some of the Class-2 are something else.
- Bullying a Dragon: Class 3 Pallasites (aka Mooks) insult the Bronzes by saying no matter what, they're just Bronze saints. Even when one of said Bronze killed a god. At the same time, Class 3 Pallasites are the equivalent to Bronze Saints in Pallas's army. An average Class 3 Pallasite against an average Bronze Saint is an even matchup.
- Cannon Fodder: The nameless Class-4 Pallasite footsoldiers who get used as Zerg Rush and We Have Reserves manner since there's more of them than there are Steel Saints.
- Dragon-in-Chief/ Dragon with an Agenda/ The Man Behind the Man: The Class-1 Pallasites are implied to be just using Pallas as a mean to defeat Athena. The truth is they outright despise her, calling her an annoying selfish brat behind her back. The only one of them who genuinely cares for her is Titan.
- Punny Name: Pallasites sounds similar to parasites. Pallas is draining the power of Athena over time. In a way that makes her a parasite feeding off Athena.
- Stellar Theme Naming: They are named after the moons of Saturn.
- Time Master: Their Chronotectors grant them time-related powers.
- And I Must Scream: Cataclysm Slash inflicted this on the Koga and the group, who are still conscious, but can't move.
- Powered by a Forsaken Child: Anti-Limit, a sinister looking Hourglass, can steal the power of someone and give it to the one who uses it at the cost of the victim's life.
- Taken for Granite: One of the abilities of the Chronotectors stops the time of those with low Cosmo, which turns them into stone statues. The Swords wielded by the Class 1 Pallasites can do this to everyone except Gold Saints, who No-Sell it.
- Villain Teleportation: Can teleport before a enemy attack hits them or to escape. Some of the Class-2 ones can even use it to teleport other Pallasites out of harm's way.
- Blood Knight: Went around defeating Saints purely for sport.
- Co-Dragons: With Europa, to Saturn.
- Collector of the Strange: Collects Saint Clothstones after he beats them.
- Fearless Fool: Ikki considers him one for not having any fear when they fought.
- I Am Not Left-Handed: He actually has two alchemy gloves, but he learns during his fight against Ikki that it's useless so he just gets rid of the remaining one and prepares another technique he was holding back until Europa stepped in.
- Let's Get Dangerous!: Attempts this twice! First against the Bronze Saints and then to Ikki. Europa intervened both times.
- Playing with Fire: Can use fire to create a barrier to keep the Saints trapped. Unfortunately for Mira Ikki can No-Sell it with ease.
- Sore Loser: He promises the Bronze Saints he'll let them go if they manage to land a hit on him. However, when they do, he becomes enraged instead and decides to get serious. Europa of all people has to intervene and convince him to leave the Bronzes alone.
- Spell My Name with an "S": He is also called "Miller" by the fandom.
- Meanwhile, Toei's site spells his name as "Mila".
- Tricked-Out Gloves: His alchemy glove has the power to destroy a Saints cloth and take the stone without killing the host.
Hyper Star Crusher Tarvos (Morning Star)
- Blood Knight: He loves to fight, and later comes to the conclusion that Koga is the same way.
- Carry a Big Stick: His weapon is a mace on a stick rather than a chain.

- Shoulders of Doom: They're adorned with Spikes of Villainy
- Would Hurt a Child: He's not above throwing his mace at a freaking baby!
Brionac Loge (Spear)
- Bee Afraid: He commands a swarm of Pallasite Bees, whose venom is strong enough to paralize a Bronze Saint.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He's rather fond of his bees. The feeling is mutual, and after he dies, his last surviving bee tries to blow itself up in Souma's face to avenge him.
- Logical Weakness: His bees are weak to fire.
- Spam Attack: His Needle Dance.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Toei's site spells his name as Rogge.
- Stock Weapon Names: His spear is called Brionac.
- Suicide Attack: Not himself, but one of his breeds of bees.
Max Brilliant Ymir & Methone (Claws)
- Ax-Crazy: Methone, enough to murder his sister to power up to beat Yuna and Souma, all the way proclaiming that it's so they 'become one' and praising the sibling he just murdered. He only gets worse from there, too!

- Combination Attack: Their Twin Madness Claw. Methone is able to pull it on his own after absorbing Ymir's power.

- Small Name, Big Ego: He is a Pallasite of the second lowest rank, but he feels in a position to lecture Ryuho about what true strength is.
- Spin to Deflect Stuff: He can shield himself from enemy attacks by spinning his staff.
- Would Hit a Girl: He tries to kill Shunrei, instead of just freezing her like most Pallasites do to civilian bystanders.
Dagger Hati (Daggers)
- Bad Boss: Threatens to kill his men if they don't keep on attacking Seiya.
- Combat Pragmatist: He stabs Elna In the Back.
- Glory Seeker: A villainous example. He targets Haruto, and latter Kouga, because he believes defeating them will earn him a promotion.
- Knife Nut
- Know When to Fold 'Em: Knows when to retreat when facing a opponent that is on a level he can't hope to fight against.
- Later when Thebe summons his meteor he wisely retreats since he knows the kind of devastation that will cause to him and his men.

- Oh, Crap!: When he and his army attacks the Palaestria after Genbu's death, he's greeted by Seiya himself. Cue Curb-Stomp Battle.
- Sensory Overload: Haruto defeats him by screaming at him loud enough to stun his hearing.
- Skunk Stripe
- Super Senses: He has ridiculously good hearing, to the point that he can predict his enemies' moves by hearing their blood flow.
- Weak, but Skilled: He isn't particulary strong, but his hearing habilities give him the upper hand in combat.

- Blow You Away: Cyllene
- Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: Consider Saints to be their prey.
- Just Toying with Them: Cyllene proclaims that he'll play around with the Saints instead of trying to finish them quickly.

- Sibling Rivalry: They compete for who gets promoted to Class-2 first.
- Sinister Scythe
- Spell My Name with an "S": The Toei site spells their names as Kyurene and Gureibu.
Snake Plasma Dione (Whip)

- Armor Is Useless: Snake Plasma destroys materials on a atomic level if it's repeatedly used on them.
- Combat Pragmatist: Will go after those who can repair clothes like Kiki in order to kill him so they can't be repaired, to kill defenseless Saints having their cloth fixed, or to kill Kiki while he's defenseless and fixing cloths.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Knew better than to stay around and take Kiki's Starlight Extinction head on.
- Smug Snake
- Whip It Good: With a plasma whip, too!
- The Worf Effect: Gets his Chronotector destroyed just by Kiki touching it.
Slash Reaper Europa (Chakrams)
- Berserk Button: Being forced to bow to anyone who isn't Pallas.
- Co-Dragons: With Mira, to Saturn.
- Deadly Disc
- Deal with the Devil: Offers Eden a chance to resurrect his loved ones if he kills Kouga. Eden knew it was a lie from the start.
- Enigmatic Minion: Despite being loyal to Pallas, he sometimes seems to have his own agenda, for example sabotaging Ymir and Methone by offering them the Anti Limit, or saving the Bronze Saints from an enraged Mira and later Ikki from Mira as well.
- In 78 he continues the trend by revealing his superiors the Class-1 Pallasites ordered him to lead a direct path to Pallas. He instead creates four paths with only one leading to her, but he also attempts to convince Athena to turn back, gives her and her saints a speech about how they suck, and looks at Subaru and says his name in a way that suggests he likely knows something about Subaru's hidden power.
- Know When to Fold 'Em: He knows better than to stick around and take on Athena and a group of her most powerful Saints.
- Just Toying with Them: With Kouga and the gang in front of the branching paths of Pallas castle. He beats them easily and intentionally takes a hit from Subaru.
- Multicolored Hair: Red on one side and blue on the other.
- No Sense of Personal Space: Yet another reason why the rest of the cast finds him so offputting to be around.
- Rings of Death: His Chakrams.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to both Seiya and Athena about how them not having Pallas killed when they had the chance led to the entire war and countless people across the world being turned to stone. Then he goes on to insult them, saying how unskilled most of her Saints are, especially Kouga and the group, how she is sending them to battle where they will most likely die, and how she allows someone not loyal like Harbinger to wield a Gold Cloth.
- Villainous Harlequin: His character design gives off this vibe, and in his official profile he is compared to a clown.
- Villains Want Mercy: After having his Chronotector destroyed, he begs Titan to not kill him, and offers to convince Saturn to give half of the Earth to Pallas. It doesn't work.
Perfect Pawns Rhea (Marionettes)
- Absurdly Sharp Blade: His Gae Bulg, which can pierce through even Gold Cloths... but not through Excalibur
- Black Cloak: He wears one in his first appearance.
- Blocking Stops All Damage: Averted. He blocks Kouga's Ryuuseiken, but still gets a bad burn on his hand. Not that he cares, since...
- Healing Factor: His hand quickly regenerates after being wounded by Kouga's attack.
- Creepy Dolls: His true weapon.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Was on the recieving end of one, courtesy of Shiryu, who only got hit because he decided to. Once he got serious, Rhea was no match at all for the Libra Saint.
- Spell My Name with an "S": The Toei site spells his name as Leah.
Phantom Arm Aegir (Gauntlet)
- BFS: Gets to wield Cataclysm Slash in order to defeat Libra Genbu.
- Poor Communication Kills: He thought his master Hyperion would punish him for chipping Cataclysm Slash. However, Hyperion had no intention of doing such a thing since he defeated Genbu even if it chipped his sword. So he attempts to continue fighting even after losing the sword out of fear of being punished and dies as a result. Or so it seemed...

- Psychic Powers: Can use his telekinesis to create a barrier.
- Gravity Master: Can create a crushing force of telekinesis with his "Phantom Claw" attack.

- BFS: His official title is "Titan of the Great Sword".
- Combat Compliment: Admits he severely underestimated Harbinger after he completely wrecks his Holy Sword.
- The Dragon: To Pallas
- Evil Counterpart: To Seiya. They even look somewhat alike. They are also the most loyal servants and closest companions of their respective goddesses.
- Morality Chain: Acts as one for Pallas, keeping her from unleashing her power in her fits of anger or rage.
- Noble Top Enforcer: He's both the mightiest of Pallas's minions and the most decent, moral, and... well, noble.
- Not So Different: Aknowledged by both Seiya and Titan that they are both fighting for the person they love, not because they were ordered to, but on their own free will.
- Parental Substitute: To the god-child Pallas.
- Time Stands Still: His personal Time power can be used on a object, causing time to stop for the object and the surrounding area, slowing down and turning anything that comes near it to stone.

Cataclysm Slash Hyperion (Holy Sword)
- All Your Powers Combined: His Destructiontector combines the powers of the Aries, Taurus and Leo Cloths.
- Badass Boast: After Eden exclaims that without his sword, Hyperion is as good as dead, Hyperion responds that all they've managed to do is piss him off before proceeding to absolutely shitstomp the Bronzes.
- Badass Cape
- BFS: Wields one like all other Class-1 Pallasites. His is easily the biggest and most powerful, however.
- Blood Knight: He enjoys battling those who can actually stand up to him. Problem is, no one can, and if you aren't worth his time, he'll leave you to be wiped out by his men.
- Blow You Away: Utilizes tornado-like moves against the Bronze Saints.
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Wears red, has red hair, and a red sword.
- Combat Compliment: Though he finds them weak for entrusting their hopes to someone else, he recognizes the three Gold Saints who died breaking the Cataclysm Slash's fighting spirit as something magnificent.
- Defeating the Undefeatable: Until he got beaten by the Bronze Saints after they gain Omega, he was more or less completely invincible, unfazed even after he was hit with an Athena Exclamation, and was capable of laying out Gold Saints in a single strike. Hell, his sword alone is more powerful than Abzu when used at less than it's full power.
- Doppelgänger Attack: One of his abilities.
- Evil Red Head
- Good Old Fisticuffs: After his sword is destroyed, he simply goes back to this and is no worse for wear against the Bronze Saints.
- Infinity +1 Sword: Just a tiny fragment of his sword is equal to the power of a Gold Saint, and the real thing can cut protons with ease.
- The Juggernaut: Nothing short of the true Omega can even remotely faze him, including an Athena Exclamation, a dozen Gold Saint attacks and the Bronze's combination attacks.
- Kill All Humans: Unlike Gallia and Aegaeon who enjoy toying with humans or see something valuable in them, Hyperion feels nothing for them, besides a mild annoyance at how weak they are, and would rather have them wiped out for good.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: Befitting his place as the nastiest and most Obviously Evil of the Class-1s.
- Sharpened to a Single Atom: His Catalysm Slash can cut a proton in half.
- Spell My Name with an "S": The Toei site spells his name as Haiperion.
- Taking You with Me: Attempts this after the protagonists awaken the Omega and overpower him. He fails, however, by a well-timed uppercut, courtesy of a God-powered Subaru.
- Time Stands Still: His Chrono Destruction attack freezes the victim in time, petrifying them like a statue.
- You Have Failed Me: Subverted. When Aegir is getting his ass kicked, Hyperion says that he's ashamed of him, dramatically swishes his cape, draws his sword... and lends it to Aegir to give him the upper hand in the fight.
War God's Manifestation Blade Gallia (Holy Sword)
- All Your Powers Combined: Her Photontector combines the powers of the Cancer, Aquarius, and Pisces Cloths. Appropriately, the respective Saints of this generation have all been total psychos.
- Badass Cape
- BFS: Wields one like all other Class-1 Pallasites.
- Closer to Earth: The sole female Class-1 Pallasite, and the most level-headed, serving as a voice of moderation for her more bloodthirsty comrades.Subverted as more is revealed about her since she too sees Pallas as a pawn and recruits Paradox just because she considers her a toy that would cause a ruckus and amuse her, along with revealing she looks down upon humanity.
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Blonde armor, hair, and sword.
- Fantastic Racism: While she might not agree with Hyperion's desire to Kill All Humans, she does look down on them as filthy creatures. Calling them filthy after learning of just how much Athena stands by them in episode 78.

- Psychotic Smirk: Gives one after attacking Paradox.

- Super Speed: Faster than the speed of light.
- You Have Failed Me: Does this to Paradox.

- Spell My Name with an "S": The Toei site spells his name as Aigaion.

- Worthy Opponent: Ikki's.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair
Current incarnation of Athena, goddess of strategic warfare and wisdom. Saori was pampered till adolescence, when she learned her identity as the goddess who lead 88 Saints in protecting Earth against all evils and even her fellow deities. Saori uses her vast Cosmo to support her Saints, wielding her Divine Cloth only as a last resort. Many years later, she became a mother-figure to Kouga since infancy. One day, Mars attacked her sanctuary, only to be stopped by Sagittarius Seiya (albeit at the cost of his life). She too tried to attack Mars but instead was cursed with being unable to use her Cosmo's full powers. Years later, the god of War returns to capture her. Fortunately, she still had enough time to pass on the Pegasus Cloth to Kouga and inform him of his destiny.
- Action Girl: Surprisingly enough this version of Saori takes right to the front lines and fights Mars and his Four Heavenly Kings personally the moment they appeared. Her attacks dealt a heavy enough blow on all Four Kings to seal them away, and distracted Mars long enough for Seiya to hit him. When the Meteor appeared she stopped most of it herself.
- After being sick and tired of watching Saints die for her sake against Pallas, she decides to summon her cloth and step forward into the battle once again, this time at Pallasbelta.
- Battle Ball Gown: Her Cloth consists on a metallic winged gown worn over her usual white dress.
- Big Good
- De-Power: Mars' curse prevents her from using her Cosmo to its full potential; also her Cloth is nowhere to be seen.
- Well, currently it is. However, she had it with her in the past against Mars and she was a badass with it.
- As of season 2 Pallas is draining her lifeforce, limiting her abilites, once again. Ironically, she's finally re-summoned her cloth and asked Harbinger to take care of it because she'll need it later on to fight Pallas.
- Designated Victim: Captured yet again.
- Damsel in Distress: Perpetually.
- Amazingly, she's remained safe and out of the hands of the enemies throughout the entirety of season two so far, and has even taken an active role in combat alongside her gold saints.
- Damsel in Distress: Perpetually.
- Dreaming of Things to Come: She has dreams of Pallas's return the day it happens.
- Gold and White Are Divine: One of her iconic outfits consists on a white dress with a golden corset and gold jewelry.
- Her Cloth also has this color scheme.
- Hot Goddess
- Lady of War
- Light 'em Up
- Older Than She Looks: She's is 38 now.
- Power at a Price: She can locate Pallas current whereabouts at the cost of shortening the time she has before the curse kills her.
- Rapunzel Hair: As per tradition.
- The Power of Love: She cleanses Paradox of hatred using it.
- Took a Level in Badass: Flashbacks that take place during the previous war with Mars reveal that she fought alongside the original gang. Around episode seventy, she also takes an active role in combat during the Battle for Palasvelda alongside her gold saints.
The god of strife and carnage, Mars suddenly attacked the Sanctuary in an attempt on Athenas life, only to be sealed away by Sagittarius Seiya (albeit apparently at the cost of his life), but not before cursing Athena into being unable to use her Cosmo to its fullest extent. Thirteen years later, Mars reawakens once again, but this time to capture Athena, who happens to be vital for his plans of conquering Earth.
- Badass Cape: A massive red one.
- Big Bad: Or so he appeared.
- Casting a Shadow: Turns out his Darkness Cosmo originates from the meteor.
- Celestial Body: His own body and the curse he lays on Athena.
- Crazy-Prepared: Revealed to have kept Seiya alive in the darkness Cosmo that was part of him. Just in case Abzu was resurrected and he failed.
- Disc-One Final Boss: The story isn't over with his climatic defeat — his wife Medea reveals her status as The Woman Behind the Man and the real Big Bad, and the Saints still have to defeat her, her Dragon Pisces Amor, the rest of the Martian army — and ultimately stop her plans.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He genuinely loves both his son and daughter.
- Evil Overlord
- From Nobody to Nightmare: Was originally a nobleman/politician in an unnamed country, but was thrown onto the path of darkness by his first wife's death in a terrorist bombing.
- Freudian Excuse: His wife was killed in a terrorist attack and even though he had avenged her death, his fear of others doing the same thing one day to his son or daughter made him decide that the world must change.
- A Glass of Chianti
- Meaningful Name: It might seem a bit unusual for a series based on conflicts within the Greek pantheon to have a Roman god as the Big Bad. Then you find out that 'Mars' is a pseudonym, and he used to be human.
- Physical God: Of course. Emphasis on the 'physical', as several Saints have discovered to their misfortune. He was so strong that it took exploiting his the rest of his humanity to make him let his guard down long enough for Kouga and Eden to finally harm him.
- Playing with Fire: Not in a literal sense (his powers are based on the Darkness element, not Fire) but his magic often has a very flame-like effect.
- Power Born of Madness: His power increases as he loses his sanity.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over
- Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can: Maybe. It's not to clear how much control Mars has or how long he's been in Ludwig.
- Serial-Killer Killer: He spent his last days as Ludwig going around tracking down and murdering the terrorists behind the bombing that killed his first wife, Sonia's biological mother. It still didn't satisfy him so Medea came in and made him into Mars.
- Sanity Slippage: When Edens states his intention to kill his father he proceeds to lose it, with the flames covering half his face cover the rest of it as he goes insane.
- The Spartan Way: How he raised his kids. The only reason it doesn't count as straight-up Parental Abuse is because he knows they can take it.
- Conversely, he also refuses to push them to where he knows they can't go. See his scolding reaction to Medea sending Sonia out with the Scorpio cloth, as if the heartbreaking outcome to that decision was something obvious to him.
- Star Power
- Storm of Blades: His Weapon of Choice, Gungnir, is a variant - he fires a hail of glowing, magical spears at the enemy. And we mean a hail.
- That Man Is Dead: He used to be a normal man (as much as normal is possible for a Cosmo-wielder), named Ludwig. He no longer uses that name, not even to his right-hand man Mycenae.
- Tin Tyrant
- Two-Faced: After his helmet is destroyed it reveals half his face is covered in flames. The more unstable he becomes mentally the more the flames cover his face.
- Unwitting Pawn: To his wife, Medea.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Granted, we never see him as a child, but when he was Ludwig, he was a genuinely kindhearted and sincere politician loved by his family and staff.
- Vigilante Man: Became this after his first wife's death in a terrorist bombing. Medea convinced him to upscale.
- Villainous Breakdown: He does not take his son trying to kill him or Eden telling him he'll be all alone well.
- Villain with Good Publicity: He has convinced almost all of the Saints and the people who serve the Sanctuary who weren't allied with him to begin with into believing that he is protecting Athena and the world.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Astonishingly, he's actually got a pretty good claim for qualifying despite his many horrifc acts. When your end-goal is to literally rebuild Earth as a perfect utopia, there's pretty much no upper limit on the level of brutality acceptable to accomplish it... because once you've won, none of it will have happened.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: The beginning of episode 20 has Mars' wife explaining to a young Eden, Mars's son, that Mars has always had to shoulder the pain and suffering of the world. This doesn't seem to be the exact truth, but he did lose his first wife, whom he truly loved, in a terrorist bombing. He went around wiping out those responsible, but he still couldn't bring himself to forgive the unreasonable world that let her die so pointlessly.
- Wreathed in Flames: The visible part of his face becomes engulfed in flames as his sanity is lost.
God of Darkness whose power was unleashed on earth when Medea summoned the Darkness Cosmo meteor. They are the source of the darkness that infested Mars, Kouga, and others in the series.
- Ambiguous Gender: It looks and sounds sort of like a guy, but has boobs, long hair, and a skirt.
- Back from the Dead: Was brought back to life thanks to his Darkness Cosmo being united into a single vessel.
- Casting a Shadow
- The Corruption
- Dark Is Evil: In a way. They're an elemental force of creation and destruction, and having played a part in creating the universe, they think it's a bit overdue for the second part.
- Demonic Possession: Finally does this to Kouga.
- Eldritch Abomination
- Greater-Scope Villain: Of the first arc.
- Hot-Blooded: Starts off with a Creepy Monotone voice at first, then gets more and more emotional and hammy as he fights with Kouga.
- The Maker: Claims to have created the world that Athena and the other Olympians stole from it.
- Physical God
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: Turns Kouga's skin black, his eyes red, and dulls his armors to a darkish gray. His darkness Cosmo tends to be a black and red color as well.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning
- Sadly Mythtaken: Abzu was a primordial God of fresh and groundwater. However, they were able to fit parts of his myth into the story, with water flowing in his darkness Cosmo and him being one of the first beings from which creation was born.
- Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can: Kouga is the vessel for their awakening.
- Slasher Smile: Hoo, boy, it'll make you forget that this is a kids show!
- Spell My Name with an "S": Abzu can also be written as Apsu, which is another name for them.
- Vampiric Draining: As the source of the darkness Cosmo.
- Voice of the Legion: After being removed from Koga.
- We Can Rule Together: Even after being expelled from Koga's body, he tries to get Koga to give into the darkness once more, claiming that Koga was born in the darkness and that being raised in Athena's world of light caused him to suffer.
- White Hair, Black Heart: Their form after being removed from Koga - literaly and metaphorically.
The Goddess of Disaster (originally the goddess of love) and the second Big Bad of the series. After a year of peace, Pallas appears and begins to enact her plans to eliminate the saints and destroy Athena's body and soul. Her army consists of Titan and the Pallasites. She shares a connection with Athena that causes Athena's power to wane. According to Saori, she is Athena's younger sister. In ancient times, they would govern the world together as Athena does today, but using Pallas's power over time for the greater good. That all changed when Pallas inexplicably came to despise Athena for apparently abandoning her and choosing to protect humanity, forcing them into a bitter war.
- Ambiguously Brown
- Battle Ball Gown: Her Chronotector. It's very similar to Athena's Cloth, only spikier and palette swapped from gold/white to black/red.
- Berserk Button: Being betrayed.
- Big Bad: Or so we initially think.
- Bratty Half-Pint: She behaves this way after being taken to Pallasbelta.
- Dark-Skinned Blonde
- Death Seeker: Asked Seiya to kill her before her cursed blood could lead her to kill Athena.
- Enfante Terrible: She looks very young, because she's only recently incarnated into a human body. She's expected to grow into an adult woman in less than a year, as she drains Athena's life.
- I Cannot Self-Terminate: She doesn't want to hurt Athena, so she's perfectly fine with Seiya killing her before it can happen.
- If I Can't Have You...: Platonic version. She decides to kill Athena because she can't stand the idea of her sister loving anybody other than her.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Any memories she seemed to have had when meeting Seiya disappear by the time she nexts appear.
- Laser-Guided Tyke-Bomb: She's been protected by the Class-1 Pallasites for the sole purpose of being bait and being used to weaken/kill Athena.
- Morality Pet: Acts as one for Titan. He in turn serves as her Morality Chain.
- Sadly Mythtaken: Played with. While the Pallas associated with Athena is not the goddess of disaster, other factors about her character in Omega seem to be at least loosely based off of her Greek mythological counterpart.
- Name's the Same: She has absolutely nothing to do with Pallas from the classic series.
- Non-Action Big Bad: At least at the begining, when she's too young and weak to rule her army or take part in the fight. She spends her time napping and playing with her dolls while Titan gives the orders. And by the time she takes action, it's evident that she is not the Big Bad.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: She knows the Class-1 Pallasites are servants of another god, and are plotting to get rid of her as soon as she kills Athena. Pallas feigns ignorance because their plan still involves protecting her from the Saints and bringing Athena to her, which is what she wants.
- Overnight Age-Up / Plot-Relevant Age-Up: The more she drains out of Athena's life, the more she grows upboth physically and into her true resentment for Athena and humanity.
- Puppet King: It becomes clear over the course of Season 2 that the Class-1 Pallasites are just using her for their own purposes, except maybe for Titan.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning
- The Resenter: Toward Athena, but especially the Saints and humanity as a whole, since they apparently earned Athena's love and favor above her at some point in the distant past.
- She's All Grown Up: A much older-looking Pallas can be seen in the opening.
- Shoot the Messenger: She gets so angry when she's told that Aegaeon let Kouga and the others advance further into her castle that she vaporizes the poor footsoldier who is reporting the situation to her.
- Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: You have to kill all the saints before I can play with Athena? Then please hurry up and kill them.
- We Can Rule Together: Offers this to Koga after he spends some time with her in episode 68, unaware of her true identity.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Of the "I don't want to destroy the world" variety. She asks Seiya to kill her before she can harm Athena.
The true form of Subaru. Saturn sealed his memories and took a human body in order to study them, however, he reached the conclusion that humans did not deserve to live from his experiences with Koga and the rest. Regaining his original memories and form, Saturn stopped the time of every non-Saint person on Earth, then left to his castle, becoming the final Big Bad of the series.
- A God Am I: And he would like to remind of such, very often.
- BFS: His Holy Sword, the Eternal Dance.
- Blood Knight: After living through entropic stillness for eternities, having his soul ignited by the thrill of an equal fight makes him unable to despise humanity anymore, and so he will spare them as long as Omega exists.
- Complete Immortality: Unlike other gods, he cannot die, and his weapon and Chronotector are invincible as well.
- Defeating the Undefeatable: Subverted. Saturn is invincible and as the god of time, he is truly eternal and immortal, unlike other gods who can be killed and defeated. Kouga only manages to make him back off by showing him the worth of mankind.
- FaceHeel Turn
- Good Old Fisticuffs: Him and Kouga duke it out in a man-to-man fistfight in outer space.
- Greater-Scope Villain: Of the Pallasites arc.
- Intrigued by Humanity: After Kouga makes him back down, he adopts this view, specifically in regards to the Omega, and says that as long as mankind keeps the Omega, he will let them be. Before then, he thought them nothing more than filthy creatures who wasted away at the Earth's beauty.
- I Just Want to Have Friends: Once he gets a taste of human friendship as Subaru, he can no longer go back to being alone.
- Mix-and-Match Weapon: His weapon is a long sword with a Sinister Scythe growing out of its handle.
- Name's the Same: Not spelled the same mind you, but the japanese pronunciation of "Saturn" sounds a lot like "Satan" leading some fans to believe he was Lucifer as opposed to the Roman Titan/God.
- Orcus on His Throne: Sits on his big throne waiting for the Bronze Saints to come challenge him and then to sleep after he petrified the entire population of Earth.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning
- Scars Are Forever: Invoked. He can heal any wound inflicted on him, but he decides to keep the scar Kouga gives him as a reminder of the time they spent together.
- Time Master: Enough of one to freeze the entire universe.
- Walking Spoiler
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Same as Subaru's.
- We Will Meet Again: He promises he will be back if Humanity ever loses the Omega.
The Kido Familys butler and retainer of Saori ever since her adoptive father Mitsumasa entrusted her to him. Tatsumi was once a notoriously cruel caretaker of the orphaned kids reared to become Saints, but as the years pass he lost his cruel streak, developing instead a comical side stemming from his loyalty. Now a 57-year-old, Tatsumi still serves Saori and carries his shinai around to discipline stubborn teenagers, and of course delivering some humor.
- Battle Butler: For Saori, he is her bodyguard, but considering the level of danger she often finds herself in, he is not much of help.
- Last-Name Basis: If they call him by name it will Tatsumi, in fact most recent official sources only refers to him as Tatsumi now.
Once a Bronze Saint wearing the Bear Cloth (representing Ursa Major, the Bear), Geki has now laid down his Cloth and is currently serving as an instructor at Palaestra, a training academy for Bronze Saints, as well as Souma's personal trainer.
- Badass Teacher: After Palaestra is taken by Mars, he quickly assures that everyone on Palaestra will give their lifes to protect Athena and proceeds to beat the living crap out of Mars' minions.
- Be Yourself: Believes in this more than he believes in upholding Athena's laws. He notices that whereas Kouga has trouble obeying laws because he believes in following his heart, Yuna has trouble with them because she follows them too much.
- Brought Down to Badass: As a retired Saint, he can no longer channel his Cosmo through his Cloth, but he's still more than capable of handing Martian Mooks their backsides.
- Cool Teacher: Will cheerfully bend the rules for his students if he thinks they're headed in the right direction.
- Hes Back: Returns with a Steel Cloth based on his Bear Cloth to fight in Pallasvelda.
- Mythology Gag: During Yuna and Spear's duel, he recounts to Kouga an incident in which he broke one of Athena's laws and ended up staying away from the Sanctuary for a while.
- He also recounts his match with Seiya during the original Saint Fight, including him getting the upper hand and how Seiya never gave up and instead crushed his hand and finished him off with Pegasus Ryuuseiken. This is vital advice for Kouga to learn Ryuuseiken.
- Older and Wiser
- Retired Badass
A mysterious girl possesing a very rare and powerful light Cosmo.
- Beautiful Dreamer: Twice. The first one included a Comforting Comforter, which was initiated by Kouga.
- Broken Bird: Quiet and distant as a result of some pretty severe trauma. Working with Mars was not fun.
- Celebrity Impersonator: She posed as Athena for a while, though it's unlikely she was fully aware of what she was doing.
- Childhood Friends: With Eden.
- Curtains Match the Window: A combination of Innocent Blue Eyes and Shy Blue-Haired Girl.
- Damsel in Distress
- Dark and Troubled Past: What we see is bad. What's hinted at is even worse.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: Thanks to Kouga and friends, she goes from a shy Emotionless Girl to a more open and emotional person.
- Emotionless Girl: Before meeting Kouga and friends.
- Fertile Feet: Activating her Cosmo causes plants to blossom around her.
- Friend to All Living Things
- Girl in the Castle: Ever since she was a kid she's lived all alone in a castle. Only Eden would come visit her.
- Go Out with a Smile: Her final thank you and goodbye scene towards Kouga in episode 51 is this as she cries and smiles silently while slowly fading away.
- The Heart
- The Ingenue: Due to her lack of memories and spending most of her life confined, she doesn't know anything about the world. She's also noted for her kind and gentle Cosmo.
- Innocent Blue Eyes
- Kill the Cutie: And in quite a brutal way.
- Light 'em Up
- Morality Pet: To Eden.
- Mysterious Past
- Mystical Waif
- Nice Girl
- No Social Skills: Very evident when someone like Souma fails at holding a conversation with her.
- Parental Abandonment: She was brought to Mars when she was a kid and has no clue about who her parents are.
- Protectorate: To Kouga and friends, and also Eden.
- Puppet Queen: Previously, she did pose as Athena. Someone who has the influence of a queen.
- The Quiet One: Doesn't talk unless she has something really important to say. This changes later when she gets closer to Kouga and Yuna.
- Rei Ayanami Expy: Demure and shy? Check. Blue hair and eyes? Check. Mysterious Waif with a Dark and Troubled Past? Check. Learns to express her emotions better through contact with the main character? Check. Has great and mysterious powers? Check. Not entirely of human origin? Check.
- Shrinking Violet: She's very shy and demure and doesn't seem to be used to interact with people.
- Shy Blue-Haired Girl: Her hair is blue and shyness is one of her defining traits.
- Stuffed into the Fridge: Killed to provide angst for Koga and Eden.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Very unemotional and distant, but still caring.
- Tender Tears
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to Yuna's Tomboy.
- Too Good for This Sinful Earth
- Unwitting Pawn
- When She Smiles: She begins smiling a lot more over the course of the series. It's a really beautiful sight.
- Woman in White
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has blue hair.
Dragon Libra Shiryu
One of the legendary protectors of Athena, and main protagonists of the Classic series. Shiryu was the former Dragon Saint before passing the torch to his son. Shiryu was particularly affected by the war against Mars and since lost the use of his five senses. And since then, Ryuho whishes to obtain an all powerful Cosmo and cure his father like himself did in the classic series against Cancer Deathmask. In the second season he dons the Libra Gold Cloth.
- Absurdly Sharp Blade: His Excalibur, inherited from the previous Capricorn Saint, Shura. Sharp enough to stop Rhea's Gae Bulg.
- Badass Family: While Shunrei is but a muggle, both he and his son Ryuho are Saints kicking ass.
- Deliberate Injury Gambit: He allows Rhea to hit him with his Gae Bolg, which angers Ryuuhou enough to reach the Omega sense.
- Combination Attack: He used the forbidden Athena Exclamation, together with Kiki and Fudou, in order to stop Hyperion.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Destroys Rhea after Ryuho reaches the Omega sense and faints.
- Disney Death: Not that the old fans didn't expect, of course...
- Eyes Always Shut: Even in flashbacks, when he should still be able to see.
- He eventually recovers his sight after Abzu's defeat, but he still spends most of the time with his eyes closed.
- Handicapped Badass
- Happily Married: To Shunrei.
- Hes Back: Genbu's death motivates him to come out of retirement, and he heads to the Palasvelda with Shun and Hyoga.
- Helping Would Be Kill Stealing: In #78, as the current Bronze Saints are being beaten by a Europa, he stops Shun from helping the current Bronze saints because he knows that if he or any of the elder saints solved their every problem, they would never grow as warriors, saints, etc.
- Lotus Position
- My Significance Sense Is Tingling: He can sense whenever his son is in danger, and also when Ryuuhou awakens the Seventh Sense for the first time.
- Nice Guy
- No-Sell: Excalibur can parry Rhea's Gae Bolg.
- Papa Wolf: Defied. Shiryu knows how much of a badass his little Ryuuhou is, and usually lets him fend for himself. Played straight, however, in several instances where Shiryu sees his son is clearly overpowered, for example when Genbu attacks him and his friends near the Water Ruins.
- Parental Hypocrisy: He berates Ryuho for wanting to retire and live a peaceful life, which, as seen in Next Dimension, is exactly what Shiryu wanted to do after Hades was defeated.
- Rank Up: Becomes the Libra Saint after Genbu's death.
- Rapunzel Hair
- Retired Badass
- So Proud of You: Of course, it's the first thing Shiryu says to his son when he comes back home after saving the world.
- The Speechless: He's mute, after all. It's implied he can talk to Ryuho via telepathy, but even then we never get to hear his voice.
- Suddenly Voiced: In the first season of the series, Shiryu was very much mute and spoke to Ryuho through his Cosmo. Come the second season, in Ryuho's Character Focus episode, Shiryu can speak audibly again. This may be justified since the producers probably couldn't find a replacement voice for Shiryu at the time, but they eventually found it in Ken Narita, and boy he would make the late Hirotaka Suzuoki proud.
- Stern Teacher: He doesn't go easy on Ryuho just because he is his son.
- Team Dad
- Training from Hell: Despite Ryuho's reluctance to train, Shiryu insisted on it since he knew of the new enemies about to surface and wanted his son to prepare.
One of the legendary protectors of Athena, and main protagonists of the Classic series. After the battle with Mars, he's cursed with Mars' Cosmo that any time he summons the Andromeda Cloth, the curse continues to destroy his body. He later becomes a wandering doctor, though his reputation is still fresh in everyone's mind. He later took care of Ryuhou.
- Blow You Away: Nebula Stream and Nebula Storm.
- De-Power: Just like Saori. In his case, the curse has already gone from being a small spatter on his wrist to covering his full left arm. Shun being Shun, he's more than ready to sacrifice some extra precious skin to save the day.
- Dude Looks Like a Lady: He still does.
- Hes Back: He returns as a saint after Abzu is defeated. As the Pallasites can attest, he kicks as much ass as before.
- Idiot Ball: He still has this trait like in the classic series. Did you really think killing yourself to save a little kid was a good idea, Shun?
- Older Than They Look: Looking at him, you wouldn't say he's much older than 13-year-old Kouga. He's 38.
- Retired Badass: But don't push your luck and anger him, ok?
- Underestimating Badassery: Halimede, a 3rd class pallasite, really thinks he can beat Shun. A guy who fought Poseidon, Hades and Mars. Once Shun get serious, Halimede gets crushed. Even Ikki knows that Shun can be dangerous should he ever decide to.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: Gives one to Tokisada.
- Hes Back: Reappears in Pallasbelda, wearing a new version of his Cygnus Cloth.
- An Ice Person
- It's Personal: Against Tokisada, for insulting his master's Aquarius Cloth.
- Older and Wiser
- Power Nullifier: His ice attacks can nullify some of the attacks used by Time Manipulators.
- Retired Badass
- Stealth Mentor: Towards Kouga, during his Heroic BSoD.
- Big Damn Heroes: Saves Emma from being crushed to death by Aegir.
- The Dreaded: Among the Pallasite army.
- Gratuitous English: Good Luck!
- Hes Back: He appears very briefly alongside the Silver and Steel Saints in the second seasons opening. And finally makes his comeback in episode 84, though wearing a Steel Cloth based on his old Unicorn Cloth, instead of the real thing. However...
- Older and Wiser
- Red Baron: The Pallasite Hunter.
- Retired Badass: We don't see him wearing his Cloth or entering the frontlines, however, unlike Geki, Hyoga, Ban, Nachi or Shiryu, his character appears under "Bronze" in the official site, rather than "Character", so...
- Took a Level in Badass: Upon finally arriving in Pallasvelda, he casually apologizes for being so late to the party. It turns out it took much longer than he expected to wipe out the remainders of Saturn's army still spread over the world. And then he curbstomps a Class-2 Pallasite who was beating the rest of the Steel Saints, including Ban, Nachi and the Original ones, all by himself. For those who remember him in the classic anime/manga, that comes out as quite a shock.
- Training from Hell: To Souma, so he could regain his composure.
The last of the legendary Bronze Saints, a loner who rarely works with others, even with his own brother, Shun. Nonetheless, he cares about them, and always comes to help when needed. During the time when the Saints were fighting Mars he was tracking down the true enemy and the Pallasites, damaging Heavy Lightning Striker during a battle that wounded him and was healing until recently. He then joins the battle in Pallasvelda.
- Almighty Janitor: A Bronze Saint with the power of a Gold. It's probably best not to speculate what he could do with better equipment.
- Big Damn Heroes: Come to finish Aegaeon as well as help Shun's team.
- Came Back Strong: Always, kill him while you can. As expected of the Phoenix, of course.
- Curb-Stomp Battle: To Mira, Europe stops the fight before things get really ugly.
- Disney Death: What's most surprising is not that he survived his clash against Aegaeon, but rather that there actually were viewers who genuinely believed he had bit the dust for real.
- I Work Alone: Decides to go on ahead alone when the rest enter Pallas Castle.
- Pulls this again in the fight against Aegaeon, making Kouga, Shun and the rest continue as he fights the First Class Pallasite alone.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Is he ever. He interrupts Miller's attack on the Bronze Saints by attacking Kouga and the others with a blast of Cosmo himself and calling them weaklings for being afraid of the Pallasite's power. Nevertheless, the Phoenix Saint helps them by taking on Miller himself, and after the enemy is forced to retreat, he is much less harsh when talking to Kouga and his team mates again as he encourages the young Saints to fight bravely. Furthermore, Ikki puts his faith and hope on Kouga and the others, specially at the end of his battle with Aegaeon. After he survives his Heroic Sacrifice with Aegaeon, he lends his Cosmo to Kouga so that the Omega can finally be awakened.
- Mind Rape: His Phoenix Genma-Ken is just as fearsome as ever, just ask Mira.
- Out of the Inferno: The first time we see him on the Pallasvelda battlefield.
- Playing with Fire
- Primary-Color Champion: When not wearing the Phoenix Cloth - his civilian attire is again a blue T-shirt and red pants like in the original series, but this time he also has white bandages on his arms.
- Taking You with Me: He kills Aegaeon at the cost of his own life.
- Not Quite Dead: ... Or so it seemed, until episode 96. Apparently, he survived thanks to Aegaeon's intervention, somehow.
- The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: To Aegaeon
- Worthy Opponent: Aegaeon's.
The Libra Saint previous to Genbu, as well as the teacher of both Shiryu and Genbu, Dohko served as a mentor to the Saints in the classic series, as well as watching over the Specters. While he died to allow the Bronze Saints to enter the Elyseum, he still appears in Omega in flashbacks of both of his students.
- Meaningful Name: "Little tiger".
- The Four Gods: Alongside his students, Shiryu (purple dragon) and Genbu (black tortoise). They only lack the Vermillion Bird.
- Posthumous Character
- Really 700 Years Old: Due to the Misophetamenos.
- Spell My Name with an "S": His name has also been written as Tong-Hu, as it would be read in Chinese.
- The Mentor: To both Shiryu and Genbu.
- Tiger Versus Dragon: He was able to balance both sides of this fight, as shown by the fact that he was named after the tiger, yet was the Dragon Saint before becoming Libra.
