Shun is one of Seiya's friends and the Andromeda Bronze Saint. Originally meant to be sent to Death Queen Island, he instead travels to Andromeda due to his older brother Ikki volunteering to go to Death Queen Island instead. After hard training and undergoing the Andromeda Ritual, Shun manages to retrieve the Andromeda Cloth.
Shun has green hair and eyebrows, and blue eyes.
While not wearing his Cloth, Shun usually wears white pants with straps, a green t-shirt and black shoes.
When he equips his Cloth, his attire is replaced by a light green outfit which later changes color into a light pink.
Shun is a very gentle Saint, not wanting to hurt his opponents. He does not wish death upon his opponents in battle, but when someone first forces him to the limit or taunt his feelings, he is a very strong and dangerous opponent.
He may be considered the strongest of the Bronze Saints, but since he tends to hold back, he is easily underestimated and defeated, leading to Ikki usually rescuing his life.
He makes his first appearance when Seiya is about to fight Geki, and comments that Saints and bears are two different things after Seiya defeats Geki.
During the next round after Seiya's vicious battle against Shiryu and later rescue, Shun equips his Andromeda Cloth in order to fight Jabu. Asking the Unicorn why he truly fight, Shun simply evades Jabu's assaults with little effort, deciding to retaliate with his chains which wounds Jabu at each hit.
While Jabu is fighting to stand on his feet, he notice that attacking from Shun might be his chance.
Shun simply taunts Jabu, stating that the chains are most effective when hitting it's opponent while in the air, and Jabu is once again taken down.
However, Shun's chains suddenly start forming the letters "AXIA", which leaves the Bronze Saint confused at what kind of enemy that may be. Unable to think further, Shun is caught of guard as Jabu grabs the chain as a last attempt to win their scuffle.
However, the chains start producing 10 000 volts which defeat Jabu.
Shortly after Jabu's defeat, Shun's chains start behaving aggressively and launch themselves at the stand where the Gold Cloth is. Noticing a mysterious figure emerging at the stand, the other Bronze Saints are confused at who this figure is.
He reveals himself as the Phoenix, the last Bronze Saint who has been expected to arrive at the Graude Foundation to compete in the tournament.
Unable to hold back the chains any further, Shun is forced to attack the Phoenix who simply attacks Shun's shoulder before revealing himself as Ikki, Shun's older brother who switched places with him 7 years ago, travelling to Death Queen Island instead.
Stealing the Gold Cloth, Ikki departs with a horde of Black Saints wearing the same Cloth as him, only with a black and evil color.
Shun joins Seiya, Shiryu and Hyoga in the search of Ikki and the Gold Cloth. After a long chase and confrontations with several Black Phoenixes, they find Ikki, but he manages to escape.
Later, Shun decides to join Seiya and Hyoga to the Death Valley to fight Ikki and the Black Saints.
When they arrive at the Death Valley to accept Ikki's challenge, Shun gives each of his friends a bell so that they may hear each other at any time.
Hearing a bell ringing, Shun at first notice Seiya's Cloth and the Gold Cloth parts he was carrying, before seeing Seiya further down the mountainside, with a black skin. As he attempts to rescue his friend, the Black Andromeda appears and informs him of the reason for Seiya's current appearance.
Struggling to prevent Seiya from falling as well as handling the vicious assaults of Black Andromeda, Shun is more and more wounded as the Black Saint unleash his chains which transforms into snakes.
As he hears Seiya talking to him, Shun urges him to not break the chain. However, Seiya does so in order for Shun to fight back. Furious at Black Andromeda for seemingly losing his friend, Shun easily breaks the snake-chains and retaliates with his Nebula Chain, killing Black Andromeda.
When Black Dragon appears to fight Shun for the Gold Cloth parts, Shiryu arrives and deals with his evil counterpart while Shun heads on to rescue Seiya. After retrieving Seiya, Shiryu punctures Seiya's star points after defeating Black Dragon, before the two Bronze Saints travel ahead to find Ikki.
Finding the Phoenix, Shun knocks out Shiryu in order to prevent Ikki from killing him. Instead, he offers his own life, but Ikki only reacts by kicking him. About to kill his brother, Seiya arrives fully healed and once more donning his Cloth to save Shun, but he is no match, having barely escaped from the clutches of death seconds ago.
Now gathered once more, the four Bronze Saints are unsuccesful in having Ikki surrender, who simply retaliates by first attacking Hyoga with the Phoenix Genma Ken which is reflected, before later unleashing his ultimate technique Hô Yoku Tenshô which knocks out the four of them.
When Seiya manages to finally defeat Ikki, the Bronze Saints learn that something is happening in the Sanctuary. Just then, Docrates attacks the Bronze Saints, Ikki almost fall down the mountain as it splits, but Shun grabs the Phoenix and laments that he does not wish to lose his brother again.
After the two brothers embrace for a brief moment, Ikki attacks Docrates and sacrifice himself, much to Shun's horror. Swearing to avenge Ikki by reclaiming the Gold Cloth, the Bronze Saints mourn their friend before leaving.
Docrates survives the avalanche however, and makes way to the Kido Mansion where he easily overpowers Shun, Shiryu and Hyoga despite their efforts. Despite Seiya's arrival to assist his friends, Docrates retreats with Saori and Tatsumi.
The Bronze Saints agrees to split up, with Shiryu and Kiki heading to Death Valley to recover the other parts of the Gold Cloth, Hyoga recovering the mask, and Seiya and Shun facing Docrates to save Saori and Tatsumi.
Arriving at the Graude Foundation where they fought for the Gold Cloth, the two Bronze Saints are confronted by Docrates who praise them for not running away.
Swearing to fight Docrates in order to avenge Ikki's sacrifice, Shun manages to defeat Docrates' henchmen before attacking Docrates and having a part of the arena's roof fall down on him, which only enrage him further.
When Hyoga arrives, he attacks Docrates and freeze his feet before lifting him up which allows Seiya and Shun to finish him off with a combination of the Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken and the Nebula Chain.
After Docrates' defeat, the Pope begins sending several assassins to kill the Bronze Saints and retrieve the Gold Cloth.
When they learn of a large oil tanker at sea having been taken over by a trio of Ghost Saints, the Bronze Saints rush to the tanker to face their new enemy. They are unsuccesful as the Ghost Saints are able to retreat due to their master Gheist's illusions.
Heading to the Skull Island where the Ghost Saints reside, they are split up as Hyoga exhaust himself from battling Sea Serpent and then being stung by several bugs. As they resume, Shiryu is separated as he dives into water in order to escape a pack of bats before he is electrocuted.
Floating on a wooden log, the two Bronze Saints are ambushed by the Jellyfish Ghost Saint whom Shun engages in order to buy Seiya time, but he is easily defeated when the Jellyfish unleash his electricity against the Andromeda.
He is saved as Seiya kills the Ghost Saint, but have no strength left to join Seiya to the great fortress. He later recovers along with Shiryu and Hyoga and they salute Seiya as he emerges from the fortress with the mask of the Gold Cloth.
Watching on the television that the Kido Mansion is burning, Shun convince Saori that heading there will most likely be an ambush for them to reveal themselves. However, Tatsumi ventures nonetheless and is captured and tortured into revealing their hiding place.
Hearing Tatsumi's voice, Shun equips his Andromeda Cloth and confronts the Flame Saint, the one responsible for the Kido Mansion burning. Engaging the Flame Saint, Shun is able to hold his ground due to his chains being able to extinguish the flames which slowly engulf the forest.
However, the flames prove to be too much for the Bronze Saint and he is consumed by the flames, slowly approaching death. As Shun falls unconscious, a mysterious figure emerge from the flames carrying Shun. That man is revealed to be Ikki who has revived from the flames.
Shortly after Ikki kills the Flame Saint, Shun and Saori are joyful to see Ikki still alive, as well as Seiya and Hyoga who arrive seconds later.
Learning further from Ikki about the Sanctuary, the Bronze Saints, now aware of their true enemy, decides to fight back and stop the Pope's evil plans.
After the battle against Flame Saint, the Silver Saints are sent to get the mask of the Gold Cloth and kill the Bronze Saints.
Arriving in time to save Saori and Seiya from the ambush of Jamian and Shaina, Shun easily knocks out the already confused Jamian who falls down the mountainside to his death.
Shortly after, Shaina engage Shun who is unable to rival her vicious speed. Hyoga steps in and the two are able to defeat her after Shun distracts her with his Nebula Chain.
Before they can escort Saori and Seiya to safety, two more Silver Saints reveal themselves as Dante and Capella.
Engaging the Silver Saints in combat, Shun faces Dante while Hyoga struggles against Capella.
When he uses his Saucer, Shun intervenes and breaks off the attack, angering the Silver Saints.
Combining their attacks, they easily defeat the two Bronze Saints before throwing them down the mountainside. They are able to survive however, due to Shun's chains.
By the time they climb up to the edge, they reunite with Ikki who has defeated Capella.
Interfering against Dante, Shun insist that the Silver Saint witness the strength of Ikki's younger brother. Being underestimated, Shun is able to overpower Dante's attack with the Nebula Chain, defeating the Silver Saint with the falls to his death.
While Seiya, Shun and Shiryu decide to search for the Sanctuary, they are ambushed by Shaina, Spartan and Argol who bring their plane down. As Seiya engage Shaina and Shiryu engage Spartan, Shun is confronted by the Silver Saint Argol.
When Shaina is defeated, Argol tries to rush to her side, but Shun tries to prevent the Silver Saint from leaving their fight. The chain stops, however, seconds before reaching Argol and Shun is then turned to stone, due to Argol's Medusa shield on his back.
By the time he recovers, Shiryu has managed to defeat Argol but at the cost of his own eyesight.
The Gold Saints
During Seiya's battle against Aioria in the forest, Hyoga and Shun arrives at the scene, witnessing Seiya wearing the Gold Cloth and also learning that there is more than one Gold Cloth.
Charging at the Gold Saint, they are easily defeated when he charge at them with his lightspeed blows.
After Aioria leaves, the Bronze Saints discuss their powers, stating that they will be ready for anything in order to achieve victory against the seemingly invincible Gold Saints.
Finally, the time has come for Athena and her Bronze Saints to go to Sanctuary and defeat the Grand Pope and save the world from evil.
The battle of the twelve Houses
Shun accompanies Athena and the other Bronze Saints to Sanctuary to fight against the Grand Pope, but first they have to go through the twelve Houses, each guarded by a Gold Saint.
But before they are able to start their journey, Ptolemy attacks Athena and the Bronze Saints with his Phantom Arrow.
After Ptolemy's defeat, the Bronze Saints learn that they have only twelve hours to reach the Pope and bring him back down to Athena in order to remove the arrow, since he is the only one capable of doing it.
And in order to make it in time, they have to pass through all twelve Houses within 12 hours, or Saori will die.
With the promise of saving Athena within those 12 hours, the battle of the twelve Houses begins.
House of Aries
Arriving at the House of Aries, the Bronze Saints find themselves confronted by Mu who is revealed to be a Gold Saint. After a short misunderstanding however, Mu repairs their Cloths in order to reinforce them for the upcoming battles.
House of Taurus
At the House of Taurus, the Bronze Saints tries to rush through, but they are stopped by Aldebaran, the Gold Saint guarding the House. Trying to move forward as Seiya attempts to distract the Gold Saint, the Bronze Saints are instead knocked out seconds later, leaving Seiya to fight the golden bull himself.
As they recover, they feel Seiya's Cosmo and rendezvous with him seconds after he breaks one of Aldebaran's golden horns and is granted victory.
When they try to leave with Seiya, Aldebaran states that only Seiya has defeated him and will be allowed to pass. Having no time to waste, the three Bronze Saints gather their Cosmo in order to freeze Aldebaran's movements, achieving victory as Aldebaran allows them passage as well.
House of Gemini
At the House of Gemini, the Bronze Saints meet up with Seiya who came out the entrance. Confused at why he's still at the entrance, Seiya informs the others that he did run through and felt that he saw the exit. As they all try together, they arrive once more at the entrance, this time seeing two entrances to the House.
Splitting up, Seiya and Shiryu take one path while Hyoga and Shun take the other path.
While they run, they feel a massive Cosmo, before they finally meet the Gemini Gold Saint who blocks their path. Charging at his opponent, Hyoga's Diamond Dust is reflected by the Gold Saint who is not even moving.
Amazed at the power of the Gold Saint, Hyoga burns his Cosmo and unleash his Aurora Thunder Attack, but that attack is also deflected, knocking Hyoga out after receiving both Diamond Dust and Aurora Thunder Attack reflected by Gemini.
While Hyoga lies unconscious, the Gemini Saint unleash his own attack Another Dimension at the two Bronze Saints, sending them to an infinite space corridor. Shun manages to return to the House with his chains, but he is unable to save Hyoga who disappear in the Another Dimension.
Struggling to fight the Gold Saint, Shun is attacked by Gemini's Another Dimension several times, but he manages to survive thanks to his chains and Ikki who interferes for a brief moment, saving Shun.
As Ikki returns to resting, Shun is once more sent into Another Dimension by the Gemini who mocks him for his weakness and for not leaving the House when he still had a chance.
Hearing the voices of his friends and Athena and determined to save Hyoga, Shun finally manages to awaken his Seventh Sense and attacks the Gemini with his new Thunder Wave, discovering that the Gemini Gold Saint is an illusion when his chains pass through the Gold Saint's helmet, attacking the Pope directly.
Having won the battle at the House of Gemini, Shun is finally able to pass onward to the House of Cancer, where he rendezvous with Shiryu who just defeated Deathmask.
House of Virgo
At the House of Virgo, the Bronze Saints Seiya, Shiryu and Shun all try to fight Shaka, but without success as the Gold Saint easily counters all their attacks, nearly killing Shun with his own chain. After Shaka defeats Ikki by taking his senses, Shun quickly let his chain loose at Shaka again, stating that he will not let him kill Ikki.
However, Ikki awakens his Seventh Sense, forcing Shun to withdraw his chain and watch as Ikki sacrifice himself to defeat Shaka.
Devastated, Shun looks at the Virgo Cloth standing in front of him, before Ikki's voice encourage him to keep fighting with Seiya and the others as a man, in which he does by leaving the House of Virgo with Seiya and Shiryu.
House of Libra
Arriving at the House of Libra, the Bronze Saints find Hyoga trapped in a large wall of ice created by Camus. Watching Seiya desperately trying to break the coffin with no effort, the Libra Gold Cloth suddenly arrives to assist the Bronze Saints.
Shiryu equips one of the swords and succesfully free Hyoga from the coffin. Since Seiya and Shiryu are further wounded, Shun decides to remain at the House in order to revive Hyoga who is cold as ice after being in the coffin.
Willingly sacrificing his life if required, Shun burns his Cosmo in order to warm Hyoga.
House of Scorpio
Hyoga arrives at the House of Scorpio with an unconscious Shun after Seiya and Shiryu were recently defeated by Miro. Leaving Shun to Seiya and Shiryu, Hyoga sends them further ahead while he deals with Miro.
House of Sagittarius
Arriving at the House of Sagittarius, Shun and the other Bronze Saints encounter a series of trials before they see the message Aioros left for them to one day stumble upon and realize how much they are needed to protect Athena and the world from evil.
House of Capricorn
Moving onward, the Bronze Saints make way through the House of Capricorn without stumbling upon it's guardian. However, before they can make way any further, a huge slash of Cosmo splits the earth, prompting Shiryu to push Seiya, Hyoga and Shun to the other side while he remains at the House of Capricorn to face off against Shura.
As they move onward, they notice Shiryu soaring into the sky in a sacrificial move to defeat Shura. As the dragon fades away, the remaining Bronze Saints mourn their friend.
House of Aquarius
Having little time to mourn Shiryu's sacrifice, Shun, Seiya and Hyoga find themselves confronted by Camus. Telling Seiya and Shun to move ahead, Hyoga stays at the House of Aquarius to settle things with his master.
When their duel ends, Seiya tells Shun to not look back before heading to the final House.
House of Pisces
Arriving at the House of Pisces, Seiya and Shun are confronted by Aphrodite. Wanting Seiya to move onward, Shun remains at the House of Pisces to fight the Gold Saint while Seiya moves onward.
While Seiya rush through the final House, Shun learns from Aphrodite that he is the one who killed Shun's master at Andromeda Island, while everyone believed Miro to be responsible for that act.
The Gold Saint also informs Shun that the path to the Grand Pope is covered in poisonus red roses which will slowly drain Seiya's life. Wanting to avenge his master's death and rescue Seiya as quickly as possible, Shun attacks the Gold Saint with his chains, but is easily underestimated and defeated as Aphrodite unleash his Royal Demon Rose which paralyze him.
Remembering his suffering training in order to achieve the Andromeda Bronze Cloth by fighting Leda and Spica before taking the sacrifice, Shun is able to stand up once more, evading Aphrodite's light speed attacks which shock the Gold Saint, since even Albiore was unable to move after being struck by the roses.
Surprising Aphrodite by reflecting the Royal Demon Rose with his Rolling Defense, Shun seems to gain the advantage when he is able to locate Aphrodite awhile he hides in the mists of the roses with his Thunder Wave. As soon as he reveals the Gold Saint's location, the Bronze Saint unleash the same technique once again, only for the chain to be stopped by a black rose.
After losing his chains, the Gold Saint mercilessly attacks with a new shower of the Piranhan Rose and shatters the Andromeda Bronze Cloth. However, Shun remembers further of his training, where he unleash a massive power against Albiore while not wearing his Cloth. As he leaves, the bracer on Albiore's right hand shatters, indicating Shun's true powers without his Cloth.
Once more standing up and burning his Cosmo to Aphrotide's horror, Shun awakens his Seventh Sense once more, and attacks Aphrodite with the Nebula Stream. Not intending to give up, the Gold Saint shows the white rose and decides to kill Shun with the Bloody Rose.
Urging the Gold Saint to accept defeat and fight against the Pope's evil deeds, Shun is forced to increase his Cosmo in order to restrain Aphrodite who burns his Cosmo, swearing to kill the Bronze Saint. Right after launching the Bloody Rose which penetrate Shun's heart, the young Bronze Saint unleashes the final blow Nebula Storm, succesfully defeating Aphrodite and damaging his Gold Cloth in the process.
However, with the rose in his heart turning completely red, the young Andromeda fall shortly after Aphrodite praise him for his incredible Cosmo, will and determination before he succumbs to his wounds and dies.
Statue of Athena
Before Shun succumbs to the Bloody Rose, Athena arrives and revive him, before he joins the other Saints to the statue of Athena, where he transfer all his remaining Cosmo to Seiya along with the other Bronze Saints, allowing him to defeat Saga and destroy his evil side before collapsing due to exhaustion.
After the battle against the Gold Saints, with Shun's Cloth shattered, and in need of repairs, his Cloth is resurrected by the blood of Aldebaran and receives the endurance of a Gold Cloth.
When the God Warrior Mizar Zeta Syd arrives to kill Saori, Seiya and Shun arrives with their new Bronze Cloths to defend Athena. Engaging the new enemy in the forest after he questions Shun's chains, the two seem to fight at an equal pace until Syd leaps directly to the sun. Unable to see the God Warrior, Shun is defeated by his Viking Tiger Claw and almost killed.
However, Ikki arrives in time to save his younger brother, before Seiya manages to wound Syd with his Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken
When Shiryu and Hyoga arrives at Athena's side with their new Cloths as well, Syd retreats, taunting Seiya before leaving.
After Seiya manages to defeat Thor, the Bronze Saints split up in order to find the God Warriors and retrieve their Odin Sapphires which will allow them to use the Balmung Sword in order to destroy the Nibelungen Ring.
Shortly after Hyoga defeats Hagen, Shun is confronted by the God Warrior Mime. Attacking with his Nebula Chain, Shun is shocked as the chains stop before reaching Mime, realizing that Mime have no intention of killing, thus the chain will not attack.
Resuming his attacks, Shun is instead knocked back as Mime unleash several blows moving at the speed of light, easily defeating Shun. Remebering that he has wounded several opponents in battle, Shun is willing to accept his death at the hands of Mime.
However, Ikki reminds him of his duty as a Saint and that they must be able to accept it if they lose comrades or take someone's life. Burning his Cosmo, Shun once more decides to fight back against the God Warrior who is surprised at Shun's determination before simply knocking his headgear off.
Shun later manages to hit Mime and knock off his headgear as well, due to Mime's last attack causing Shun to slightly lose consciousness, allowing him to see Mime's shadow. However, the chains loose, and Shun decides to remove his Cloth. Using the Nebula Stream, he urges Mime to surrender.
As the God Warrior refuses to surrender, Shun use the Nebula Storm, seemingly defeating Mime and ending their battle.
However, to Shun's horror, Mime survives the Nebula Storm, holding tight to one of the ruined walls with his harp strings, landing without any injuries. Deciding to end the fight, he attacks Shun with the Stringer Requiem, almost killing Shun before Ikki interferes, resuming the battle against Mime while Shun observe.
After the defeat of Alberich, Shun finally reaches the Valhalla Palace where he finds himself confronted by Syd again. Wanting to settle the score since last time, Syd mercilessly attacks Shun with his Viking Tiger Claw at the speed of light.
Before the God Warrior can kill him though, Seiya and Hyoga arrives to defend their friend, only for Shun to send them ahead while handling Syd himself.
Still underestimated and not strong enough to defeat Syd, Shun is severely wounded by Syd's vicious Viking Tiger Claw attacks before the God Warrior decides to end the battle with his Blue Impulse.
However, with the Cloth reborn from the Gold Saints and hearing Ikki reminding him on how he achieved the ultimate Cosmo, the Seventh Sense, Shun manages to stand up again. Using the Nebula Stream, he empty the palace of ice and snow, and finally manages to surpass Syd's strength. Unleashing the Nebula Storm, he finally defeats the God Warrior who dies of his wounds shortly after.
But shortly after, Bud appears, and despite Shun and Shaina's attempts, they are no match as Shun is exhausted and Shaina's attacks having no effect.
Before Bud can finish them off, Ikki appears and challenge the Shadow God Warrior. During their battle, Shun watch as even Ikki is unable to equal the Shadow God Warrior's strength or speed, and he tries to stand up and help Ikki defeat the opponent, but even with their combined Cosmo, they fail to land a single hit on their enemy.
However, after Ikki finally manage to defeat Bud after awakening his Seventh Sense, the two Bronze Saints make their way onward, where they find Hyoga severly wounded but alive. Not wanting to leave their friend behind, they carry him and move onward.
When they reach the statue of Odin, the Bronze Saints see a defeated Seiya and a victorius Siegfried. Watching Ikki fight and be defeated by the God Warrior, Shun tries in vain to defend himself and Hyoga, but they are also defeated by the mighty God Warrior's Odin Sword.
With Shun and all the other Bronze Saints giving their Cosmo to Seiya, Siegfried is finally defeated before he sacrifices himself to defeat the Marina General Sorrento.
With the final God Warrior defeated, Hilda is the only one left. Acting as a shield for Seiya, Shun and the others stand between Hilda and their friend, defending him while he make way for the statue of Odin.
After Hilda's defeat and the destruction of the Nibelungen Ring, the Saints make their way back to Athena, where they find their Goddess unconscious, and they are joyful when they see her standing up, still alive. Although they have a brief moment of reunion, a large wave suddenly strikes the Saints, and as they recover, they notice Athena is gone.
Realizing that the one of launched the wave and kidnapped Athena is Poseidon, the god of the sea, Seiya and Shun search for the entrance to the underwater kingdom, finding nothing. When they return, they learn from Hilda about a place in Asgard where no one dare venture.
Taking that as the entrance to Poseidon's realm, the Bronze Saints venture there and journey down the large whirlpool there, thus starting the battle against Poseidon.
As they recover at the underwater Sanctuary of Poseidon, they are confronted by Thetys and Sea Dragon. Attempting to challenge Sea Dragon, Seiya and Shun are easily knocked out. When dozens of underwater soldiers attack, the Bronze Saints quickly deal with them all, annoying Sea Dragon.
When Seiya then states that it will be more equal if the strongest forces come at them, Sea Dragon simply leaves, entrusting Thetys to inform the Bronze Saints and stating that he will be waiting for them at his Pillar.
Learning from Thetys that in order to save Athena, who is now inside the Main Breadwinner, the Bronze Saints have to destroy the seven Mammoth Pillars supporting the ocean, or the Main Breadwinner will not even be scratched.
However, destroying them will not be a trivial challenge, as each Mammoth Pillar is guarded by one of the strongest units serving Poseidon, the Marina Generals whose power equals that of the Gold Saints.
South Pacific Mammoth Pillar
Shortly after the destruction of the North Pacific Mammoth Pillar, Shun arrives at the South Pacific Mammoth Pillar. There he is confronted by the Marina General Io, the man with the six beasts.
Unable to react in time to Io's attacks, Shun's Rolling Defense is useless against Io when he unleash the Eagle Clutch, Wolf Fang, Queen Bee Stinger, Serpent Strangler, Vampire Inhale and Grizzly Slap.
Due to facing six opponents at once, Shun finds himself at a disadvantage before he manages to counter the Queen Bee Stinger with his Spider Net, surprising Io before breaking his stinger.Facing Io's Eagle Clutch next, Shun counters with the Casting Net, destroying the talons on the General's Scale.
Stating that once an attack has been seen, his chains will be able to adapt to the technique and figure out a defense technique. When Io then proceeds to attack with the Serpent Strangler, Shun simply breaks it with the Spiral Duct. Pleading with the General to have him surrender, Shun is forced to counter Io's Vampire Inhale with the Boomerang Shot, destroying the Scylla's wings.
Furious at having each of his beasts defeated, Io charges with the Wolf Fang, but Shun defeats that beast as well with the Wild Trap. With one beast left, Io charge with the Grizzly Slap, but Shun finishes the final beast off with the Great Capture, destroying the Scale.
Now seeing his opponent as harmless due to having no beasts left to fight with, Shun turns his attention towards the Mammoth Pillar. However, his Nebula Chain is ineffective as it simply bounces off the Pillar without leaving a scratch.
Mocking the Bronze Saint, Io breaks free from the chains restraining him before attacking Shun with his strongest technique Big Tornado, gaining the upper hand once again.
However, Shun keeps standing up in order to destroy the pillar instead of defeating Io, but is constantly attacked by the General's vicious attempts.
Tired of Io's endless attacks, Shun finally turns to the General again and burns his Cosmo to the Seventh Sense, splitting the Big Tornado and capturing Io again.
Once more captured, Io attempts to break free, only to notice the chains having a golden shine, before looking at Shun's Cloth that is also glowing golden. Shun reveals that although it may only be a Bronze Cloth, it has the durability of a Gold Cloth due to being repaired by the Gold Saints.
Willing to sacrifice himself, Shun burns his Cosmo swearing to take the pillar down with him. Just then, Kiki arrives with the Libra Cloth which gives Shun the twin rod to destroy the Pillar.
Charging at the Pillar, Shun unleash the power of the twin rod, but in a sudden moment, Io jumps between Shun and the pillar, taking the twin rod directly into his chest instead, shattering his Scale and the pillar is destroyed as well.
Asking the General why he did that, Io replies that just as Shun was prepared to sacrifice his life to destroy it, he was prepared to sacrifice his life in order to defend it.
Entrusting Kiki with the Libra Cloth, Shun continues onward to find the next Pillar.
Antarctic Mammoth Pillar
After Krishna's defeat and the Indian Mammoth Pillar's destruction, Shun journeys to the Antarctic Mammoth Pillar to destroy it. Arriving there, Shun finds both Hyoga and Seiya grievously wounded.
Just then, he hears a familiar voice and feels a powerful presence. Turning around, he is happy to see that Ikki has arrived as well to aid them. However, the chains react to Ikki's presence, and the Phoenix suddenly attack Shun who manages to fend of Ikki's strange attack, asking him why he's doing this.
Stepping back, Ikki applauds Shun for being able to see through the illusion, before revealing himself as the Marina General Kaasa. Angry at the General for manipulating Seiya and Hyoga's happiest memories, Shun engage and quickly overpowers Kaza with his chains, swearing to defeat him and avenge his friends.
However, when Kaasa transforms into Ikki once more, Shun stops attacking since he is unable to attack someone who looks like his brother, in spite of knowing it's his enemy.
Kaasa, mocking Shun for his weakness ends the fight with his Salamander Shock, defeating Shun. He still calls his brother's name, which infuriates the General who viciously stomps on his head, until a powerful Cosmo interrupts Kaasa.
As Shun lose consciousness, the real Ikki arrives at the Mammoth Pillar, challenging the Marina General in Shun's place.
By the time he recovers from his wounds, Kaasa has been killed and the Mammoth Pillar is destroyed. Deciding to continue his journey, Shun encourage Kiki to head on as Seiya will recover later, with Hyoga having recovered first and already made haste to the next Pillar.
South Atlantic Mammoth Pillar
Arriving at the South Atlantic pillar, Shun is horrified as he witness Sorrento guarding the Pillar, in spite of being pulverized along with Siegfried in Asgard. Stating that he must destroy the Pillar, Shun attacks the General, but his attack is easily deflected when Sorrento creates a barrier which the chain simply bounce off.
When Sorrento prepares to end Shun's life with the Dead End Symphony, he is interrupted when he hears Athena's prayers, like a song.
While Seiya, Shiryu, Hyoga and Shaina clash with Poseidon, and Ikki clashes with Kanon, Shun and Sorrento continue their battle at the Pillar, where Shun seemingly equal Sorrento's speed for a brief moment, until the General slash at his shoulder and later stab him in the stomach with his flute.
Once more playing the Dead End Symphony, he prepares to eliminate Shun and end his struggle. The Bronze Saint retaliates with his Rolling Defense, hoping to reflect the attack.
However, the chains are unable to deflect soundwaves, and Shun's Cloth is shattered when the chains drop their defenses. Refusing to die and abandon his friends, Shun once again unleash the Nebula Stream effectively breaking free from the effects of the Dead End Symphony and succesfully restraining Sorrento's movements, preventing him from playing the final lute that would end the battle.
Urging Sorrento to listen to him, Shun is unsuccesful in convincing the General that he fights for peace. When Sorrento prepares his Dead End Climax, Shun awakens the Seventh Sense while using the Nebula Storm, defeating Sorrento and destroying the Pillar with one of the Libra weapons before collapsing due to exhaustion.
Throne Room of Poseidon
Arriving at the throne room, Shun acts as a shield for Seiya, gladly taking the arrow if it is reflected. However, the arrow hit Poseidon finally as all the Saints gather their Cosmo into the arrow.
Heading for the Main Breadwinner, Poseidon awakens as the true god of the sea, before attacking the Saints. While Seiya, Shiryu and Hyoga fend off Poseidon, Shun stand up once again and resurrect his shattered Cloth with his Seventh Sense.
He arrives just in time to defend Ikki from Poseidon's blast, but is also defeated by Poseidon's incredible Cosmo and power.
Burning his Cosmo to the maximum, Shun, along with Shiryu, Hyoga and Ikki all transfer their Cosmo to Seiya who finally destroys the Main Breadwinner. However, Athena seals Poseidon at last before sending herself and all the Saints back home to Earth.
Since the battle against Poseidon, his Cloth has been heavily damaged once again, and he wonders where Ikki has gone after that battle. Suddenly, he feels an evil presence, deciding to travel to Sanctuary in order to investigate this feeling he has had lately.
On his way, he is encountered by former Silver Saints Sirus, Dio and Algethi who have been given the mission to eliminate Shun. Engaging the Bronze Saint one at a time, the Specters easily defeat him since he is not wearing his Cloth.
Having little time to waste, Shun equips his damaged Andromeda Cloth and easily defeats all three former Silver Saints with the Nebula Chain.
House of Aries
Regrouping with Hyoga and following a short confrontation with Shaina, the two Bronze Saints head to the House of Aries, noticing the damage after Shion and Dohko's final clash of Cosmo, leaving the House in ruins.
They shortly after rendezvous with Shiryu who has been on the way to the House, having felt his master's Cosmo disappearing.
House of Cancer
Together, the three Bronze Saints continue their journey, reaching the House of Cancer where Shiryu briefly feels someone's Cosmo before they keep going, certain it was just their own imagination.
House of Leo
On the way to the House of Leo, the Bronze Saints encounter Seiya, before the four resume and reach the House shortly after Aioria's victory against Raimi and several other Specters in their attempt at passing through the House.
Discussing three familiar Cosmos they have been feeling lately, they conclude that it must be them. The five Saints then continue onward, to the House of Virgo.
House of Virgo
When they arrive at the House of Virgo along with Aioria, they are grieved by the loss of Shaka after his battle against the three former Gold Saints who used the Athena Exclamation. When the three former Gold Saints reveal themselves to Aioria, Mu and the Bronze Saints, Miro arrives and after a brief confrontation, the Gold Saints and the former Gold Saints clash with the Athena Exclamation.
However, the Bronze Saints manage to neutralize the clash of the Athena Exclamation after burning their Cosmo to the limit beyond the Seventh Sense, with Shun using his Nebula Chain in order to send the Athena Exclamation to the sky where it explodes, leaving the Sanctuary unharmed.
Statue of Athena
Recovering from the blast, the Bronze Saints desperately try to reach the statue of Athena, but due to being exhausted and wounded from the confrontation at the House of Virgo, they are unable to make it in time, feeling Athena's Cosmo disappear as she takes her own life. Recovering from the blast, the Bronze Saints desperately try to reach the statue of Athena, but due to being exhausted and wounded from the confrontation at the House of Virgo, they are unable to make it in time, feeling Athena's Cosmo disappear as she takes her own life.
When they arrive at the statue, they notice the golden dagger and Athena's blood, lamenting on being useless. Just then, Shion arrives and insults the Bronze Saints in being useless and only Saints in title. Attacking the former Pope with their remaining strength, the four Bronze Saints are easily defeated.
Listening to what Shion has to say, the Bronze Saints realize that even in death the Saints would never betray Athena and all their actions so far was in order for Athena to prepare herself to defeat Hades in the underworld.
Using Athena's blood, Shion restores Athena's Cloth which will be crucial for Athena if she is to win the Holy War. As he informs the Bronze Saints to defeat Hades, he bestows their Bronze Cloths with the same blood, awakening them to their most powerful form.
After Shion entrusts Athena to them, the Bronze Saints then head on to join Aioria, Mu and Miro who went on ahead to the earthly castle of Hades.
Arriving at the castle, they challenge Rhadamanthys, one of the three Judges of the underworld, but the Gold Saints send them on ahead as they are no match for the Wyvern. Sacrificing themselves, the Gold Saints launch their final techniques Starlight Extinction, Scarlet Needle and Lightning Plasma at Rhadamanthys, but all three of them are defeated by his Greatest Caution.
Meanwhile, the Bronze Saints encounter Shura, Saga and Camus who are slowly dying due to their 12 hours almost reaching and end, they later move on after dealing with Zelos. Just then, they notice Pandora walking down the stairs, before they hear a harp.
Rushing to see who's playing, they notice Rhadamanthys unharmed, who states that he has killed the three Gold Saints. Refusing to let the Judge mock the Gold Saints and wanting revenge for their comrades, the Bronze Saints charge at the Specter, but they are all easily defeated one by one.
Not wanting to give up, Seiya stands up and is able to crack a little piece of Rhadamanthys' Surplice, which enrages the Judge. As he tries to kill Seiya, the other Bronze Saints unleash another round of their techniques, but Rhadamanthys easily defeats them all with his Greatest Caution.
When Shun, Hyoga and Shiryu recover, Seiya has already plunged himself and Rhadamanthys down to the underworld.
Preparing to follow Seiya into the underworld, the Bronze Saints are interrupted by the arrival of Dohko who informs them of the Eight Sense which is neccesary in order to reach the underworld without being subject to its laws. Believing them able to reach that Cosmo due to their previous battles, Dohko urge them to burn their Cosmo and believe in themselves.
Awakening in the underworld, Shun regroups with Seiya and the two Bronze Saints find themselves at the Acheron river, where they are confronted by the Specter Charon who challenges the two Saints. Interrupting the fight as Seiya's Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken is useless, Shun offers the pendant around his neck as payment for a fare over the river, not wishing to fight or hurt his opponents.
Accepting, Charon transfers the two Bronze Saints until they are halfway, where the Specter once again engage the Saints in battle, forcing Seiya off the boat. Releasing his chains, Shun is able to grab Seiya before he drowns in the river, but Charon slash at him with his oar, forcing Shun to release it, only for Seiya to attack Charon and send him out in the water.
When Charon promises to really take them to the other side this time, he once again betrays them as he boards the boat, knocking Seiya off with the Edying Current Crusher before striking at Shun. However, the Specter suddenly withdraws his oar to Shun's surprise, with the Specter stating that despite his betrayals, Shun still trusts him, mentioning Elysium during their conversation.
He once more lets Seiya aboard the boat and once they reach the shore, they finally settle their score as Seiya kills Charon.
Arriving at the First Prison, the Bronze Saints encounter Rune, who is in charge of the First Prison in Minos' abscence. Charging at the Specter, Seiya is sent to the Sixth Prison and his near death, but is saved by Shun's Nebula Chain, bringing him back to the First Prison.
When the Specter engage Shun, he acknowledge that he indeed did hurt several opponents in the past before asking Rune if anyone has right to judge others, stating that even the most innocent man must kill someone in order to survive and have food.
Rune retaliates by attacking Shun with his Fire Whip, which seemingly oblirates his body completely, later revealed to be an illusion of Kanon before they even started the confrontation.
The Bronze Saints later meet up with Kanon who berates them for their weak determination, before sending them ahead as he faces Rhadamanthys.
Arriving at the Second Prison, Shun and Seiya encounters Pharaoh and Cerberus. Desperately fighting the Specter and the hellhound, the two Bronze Saints suffer a close defeat.
However, the legendary Silver Saint Orphée arrives and at first seems to betray them by attacking them with his Stringer Nocturne, but later they find themselves wounded but alive at a large field of flowers. There, they meet Eurydice who informs them about her death, and Orphée's loyalty and love to her, stating his reason to serve Hades.
When Pharaoh attacks again, Orphée decides to join the Saints when Pharaoh reveals that Eurydice is stuck in the underworld because of him, and he kills the Specter before bringing Seiya and Shun to Giudecca through a shortcut.
Arriving at the Giudecca, Seiya engages Rhadamanthys in order to keep him busy while Orphée charges at Hades. However, to everyone's shock, Hades looks exactly like Shun in appearance.
When Rhadamanthys grabs Orphée, the Silver Saint immobilize the Specter before urging Seiya to kill him and take down Rhadamanthys as well. Burning his Cosmo up to the Eight Sense, Seiya executes a Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken, killing Orphée and suprisingly doing nothing to the Judge.
After Hades reveals himself in Shun, Seiya is quickly defeated by Rhadamanthys' Greatest Caution and sent to the Eight Prison, Cocytus.
After Hades possess Shun's body, he removes the Andromeda Cloth before sitting on the throne where he belongs.
While Pandora bandage his wounds suffered when Shun covered Seiya in the chest of flowers Orphée brought and Pandora stabbed with her spear, he suddenly feel a familiar Cosmo.
Demanding Pandora to summon the one with this Cosmo, Pandora does as her god commands, and summons Ikki shortly after his victory against Aiacos.
Confronting the Bronze Saint as he states Shun's body belongs to him, he demands Pandora stand down while he handles Ikki personally. When the Phoenix learn from Hades that he has unleashed the Greatest Eclipse which will cover the entire earth in darkness, Hades is unaffected when Ikki launch his Ho Yoku Ten Sho with all his might.
Their battle is one-sided due to Ikki facing the god of the underworld himself, having no chance of victory against such a powerful opponent.
When Ikki once more attempts to attack Hades, Shun suddenly takes control over the right arm, strangling the god of the underworld, surprising Hades, Pandora and Ikki who sees Shun appearing behind Hades.
Urging his brother to deliever the final blow, Ikki acknowledges Shun at the true Andromeda Saint, but is unable to do as Shun says, stopping his blow in the last second.
As Hades reclaim Shun's body, his hair change from a dark red to complete black, similar to Saga's hair changing from blue to grey. Now in complete control, Hades swiftly deals with Ikki, damaging his Cloth and defeating him completely.
Shortly after, Hades is confronted by Shaka and Athena who have arrived at Giudecca as well. Forcing Shaka to kill Athena, Hades throws Pandora's spear at the Gold Saint.
However, Shaka instead attempts to throw it at Hades, to which Athena grabs the spear, stating that Shun is still there.
Grabbing the spear, Hades attempt to eliminate Athena as she offers her own life for Hades to stop the Greatest Eclipse. Laughing of the matter, Hades proceeds to stab Athena with the spear, but she grabs a hold of it, using her blood and Cosmo to wound Hades, succesfully causing him enough pain to leave Shun's body and only his soul remains.
Furious at Athena for doing this to him, Hades uses his Cosmo to transfer both himself and the goddess to Elysium, where he has Hypnos trapping her in an eternal sleep in a urn that will slowly drain her life away.
Wall of Grief
Regrouping with Seiya after being freed of Hades' possession, the two Bronze Saints make their way up the staircases, finding a huge wall in front of them, as well as a wounded Shaka.
Learning that there is no way to breach the wall, Seiya tries to use one of the Libra weapons, hoping to inflict at least a little bit damage. However, he is interrupted as all the Gold Cloths arrive to help. With all 12 Gold Saints returned to life, Seiya, Shiryu, Hyoga and Shun are told to find cover, as the explosion from the impact will kill the Gold Saints.
While waiting, they face Minos who easily defeats them all, but before he can kill the Bronze Saints with his Cosmic Marionettion, the Gold Saints attack the Wall of Grief, and the explosion consumes them all, wounds Minos and destroys the wall. Returning to the site and noticing the Gold Saints are gone, the Bronze Saints mourn their comrades' deaths before moving onward to Elysium.
Path to Elysium
As the Bronze Saints make their way towards Elysium, they are ambushed by Minos who managed to survive. With Hyoga dealing with Minos, Seiya and Shun resume towards Elysium, only to be attacked by pressure, feeling as they are almost torn apart. Shun is unable to move in the atmosphere and almost disappear from Seiya, who suddenly flies to Shun with his new Pegasus wings, and they move on to Elysium.
Shun arrives just in time to save Seiya from being dealt the final blow by Thanatos after a brutal battle, but he is easily defeated by the god of death, and his chains are shattered.
Although Shiryu, Hyoga and Ikki arrives and challenge Thanatos, they are also defeated, despite Ikki being able to destroy Thanatos' headgear.
With all the Bronze Saints defeated, the god of death attacks them once more, destroying their Cloths. Even when the Gold Cloths arrive to aid Seiya and his friends, they are easily destroyed by the god, and they have nothing left to fight back with.
When Seiya manages to defeat Thanatos with his newly achieved God Cloth, he rushes to the graveyard of Hades in order to rescue Athena. Even though Hypnos stands in his way, Seiya simply destroy his robes and headgear, before moving onward.
In order for Seiya to move on, Ikki desperately try to engage the god of sleep despite having no Cloth to fight with and is defeated.
However, Shun intervenes by restraining Hypnos' hand with his chains.
To Hypnos' shock, the chains which were originally destroyed by Thanatos have another shape and more divine color, and Shun exclaims that Seiya is not the only one whose Cloth has been bestowed the blood of Athena. Just then, he is also clad in a God Cloth, surprising Hypnos, Hyoga, Shiryu and Ikki. Urging Ikki to go after Seiya and help him, Shun engage the god of sleep.
Shun attempts to fight Hypnos, but is defeated by his Eternal Drowsiness. After recovering, he joins Shiryu and Hyoga to the grave of Hades, rescuing Seiya and Ikki in time with a combined attack which stun Hades temporarily.
Rushing to the grave of Hades, they arrive in time to help Seiya and Ikki fight Hades, but they are all reflected with no effort by the god of the underworld.
However, when Seiya sacrifice himself to defend Athena, the other Bronze Saints gather their Cosmo to Athena and they are able to finally destroy the god of the underworld and claim victory in the Holy War.

Powers and Abilities
Speed of Sound
Being a Bronze Saint, Shun is able to launch attacks at Mach 1, the speed of sound. Ordinary humans are unable to see what just happened, although other Saints of higher rank are able to see it clearly.
Speed of Light
Upon reaching the Seventh Sense and later Eight Sense, Shun's attacks become so fast that even a Gold Saint is unable to see the attack before it reaches him, thus travelling at 300 000 km/s, maybe even surpassing that speed.
Although Shun begins his journey as a Bronze Saint, he has been able to fight on the same level as a Gold Saint, due to achieving the Seventh Sense, which he succesfully awakens while fighting against Gold Saints Gemini and Aphrodite.
He has also achieved the Eight Sense, allowing him to go to the underworld without being subject to it's laws while also increasing his powers.
Whenever he burns his Cosmo, Shun is surrounded by a pink aura.
Shun rely mostly on his chain since he does not want to kill his opponents.
Shun's chains rapidly slice and wrap themselves around his enemy, capturing them or hit them hard.
Shun unleash his chains which travel in a lightning-shaped movement, and attacks his enemy with 10 000 volts. This is a stronger version of his Nebula Chain
Shun mostly use it to wrap himself inside a rolling chain, which defends him from all kinds of attacks. He also uses Circle Defense while fighting Gemini, which is said to produce 10 000 volts upon those who step inside the chain circle
During the battle against Io, Shun utilize a lot of techniques to counter the General's six beasts.
- Spider Net to counter Io's Queen Bee Stinger, taking the shape of a spider's net in order to restrain bugs.
- Casting Net to counter the Eagle Clutch, taking the shape of a net which will capture flying creatures.
- Spiral Duct to defeat the Serpent Strangler, wrapping the entire snake inside a spiral chain which tightens its grip.
- Boomerang Shot to handle the Vampire Inhale, which sends the entire chain in large, circular movements to defeat the creatures.
- Wild Trap against the Wolf Fang, creating a classic animal trap with his chains which clasps themselves around the legs of the creature.
- Great Capture to finish off Io's Grizzly Slap, wrapping the entire grizzly bear with his chains.
He rarely uses this technique, because the power from this technique might kill his opponent. Nebula Stream connects directly to Shun's Cosmo and entangles his foe with streams from his Cosmo, and paralyze them.
The more Shun increases his Cosmo, so does the Nebula Stream and in the end turns into a uncontrollable power.
By the time Shun excecutes this technique, his Cloth is gone (either destroyed or removed voluntarily), allowing him full access to his Cosmo. This is the final result of the Nebula Stream, where Shun sends the full wave of his power against his enemy, entangling them in a violent storm. Because of it's destructive nature, Shun only uses this attack as a last resort.
