Seiya is the titular main protagonist of the Saint Seiya anime. Being one of 100 orphans sent around the world by Mitsumasa Kido in order to become Saints, Seiya is sent to Athens in Greece. After 7 years of training in Greece, Seiya defeats his rival Cassios before receiving the Pegasus Cloth, becoming the Pegasus Bronze Saint.
At the beginning of the series, his main objective is to find his older sister Seika, who disappeared when he was sent to Greece to train to become a Saint under the supervision of the Silver Saint Eagle Marin. However, as Seiya starts fighting alongside the other Bronze Saints, albeit reluctantly at first, his motivations shift to the protection of Athena.
Seiya is a 13-year old boy at 1.65m and weighs approximately 53 kg. He has dark brown hair and brown eyes. His civilian clothing consist of a red shirt with his sleeves rolled up, blue jeans, white shoes, two red wristbands, and a red wristband on his upper left arm as well.
During the Holy War against Hades, Seiya wears another red wristband on his upper right arm, wearing them both in civillian clothing or while wearing his Cloth. While wearing his Cloth, his usual clothing is replaced by a red sleeveless outfit.
Seiya is a person of burning passion and spirit, sometimes acting in brash and impulsive ways. Despite this, he's still a brave, kind-hearted and selfless young man; and is always willing to sacrifice himself for justice, his friends and Athena. His most notable characteristic is his absolute determination and refusal to ever give up, even when faced with impossible odds.
He also has a habit of making jokes and can be unconcerned about the consequences of his actions. It is possible that Seiya may have romantic feelings for Saori, as he shows more devotion to defend her than his fellow Saints.
Seiya and Cassios are the only two remaining contestants among 1000 other students fighting for the Pegasus Bronze Cloth at the Colosseum in Greece.
Seiya, remembering that he must bring that Cloth to Japan as he was tasked to, leaves himself open for Cassios to easily swipe him to the ground before grabbing him. Struggling to break free from Cassios' grasp, Seiya is about to face a crushing defeat when Cassios prepares to remove his ear. However, to everyone's shock, Seiya's ears remain while Cassios' falls to the ground.
Evading his opponent's next attack, Seiya easily sends his foe to the ground with a powerful kick. Cassios, refusing to let Seiya have the Pegasus Cloth, charges once again but Seiya, having drawn the star points of the Pegasus and showing a powerful aura, executes a powerful Pegasus Meteor Fist for the first time. Being too fast for Cassios to react, Seiya defeats his rival and is granted the Pegasus Cloth, along with a strict order to never use the Cloth for his own personal issues, which the newly appointed Saint agrees to.
Before Seiya is able to enjoy his Cloth, Shaina and her henchmen attack him in order to avenge Cassios' defeat. She easily knocks out Seiya with her Thunder Claw, before he equips his Cloth for the first time, launching punches at Mach 1, damaging Shaina's left shoulder. However, she still surpasses Seiya easily due to the Cloth being to heavy as lead. Listening to Marin's words about the Cosmo, Seiya manages to launch a Pegasus Meteor Fist, defeating Shaina's henchmen and splitting her mask in two.
Confronting Saori Kido and Unicorn Jabu
When Seiya returns to Japan, he is informed by Mitsumasa's granddaughter Saori Kido that Mitsumasa died five years ago, and that Saori has arranged the Galaxian Wars, a tournament where those who became Bronze Saints battle for the Sagittarius Gold Cloth. Making it clear that he does not wish to participate in the event, Seiya is confronted by Jabu. Taunting each other, Seiya attempts to leave, causing Jabu to remove the Cloth box from Seiya with his Cosmo and hurting his shoulders. In retaliation, Seiya unleashes a ray of Cosmo which wounds Jabu's left shoulder and making a hole in the wall behind him. After a conversation with his childhood friend Miho, Seiya decides to join the Galaxian Wars after all, hoping his sister will see him as the event is broadcasted on the media.
Seiya's first opponent is Bear Geki, who he underestimates until he witness the true power in Geki's arms when he grabs Seiya by the throat. He reveals that this is the technique he had used to kill a dozens of bears during his training in Canada. However, Seiya manages to defeat Geki when he crush the atoms in his gauntlets, before destroying his Cloth with hundreds of kicks.
After Cygnus Hyōga's victory against Hydra Ichi, Seiya prepares himself for round two in the ring. His next opponent is the Dragon Saint Shiryū, who suddenly unleashes a powerful blow, faster than Seiya is able to perceive. Refusing to lose, Seiya stands up, declaring that their fight has only begun. Just then, Shiryū unleashes the deadly Rozan Rising Dragon in order to end this fight quickly. He is shocked when Seiya manages to stand up after that attack, but easily blocks Seiya's Pegasus Meteor Fist. Shiryū, amazed by Seiya's motivation, states that as long as he has his shield he will never lose. Seiya decides to break the shield and charges at Shiryū. However, while Seiya crashes into the shield with his head, Shiryū tries in a quick second to hit Seiya, but he hits his shield instead as Seiya manages to dodge the blow. Shiryū, now with both his shield and his right gauntlet broken, removes his Cloth, stating he no longer has a need for it. Seiya does the same in order to fight Shiryu equally, and although it looks like he missed, Seiya manages to land two hits on Shiryū for the first time with his Pegasus Meteor Fist. Attacking again, Seiya successfully lands three more hits. With the battle drawing near to an end, Seiya reveals that he has already seen through the Rozan Rising Dragon the first time Shiryū used it. Charging at each other, the Bronze Saints prepare themselves for one final strike, with Seiya finally hitting Shiryū's weakspot, winning the match at last. However, since he punched Shiryū's weakspot, Shiryū is slowly dying, and with enough encouragement from the crowd as well as the prayers of Shunrei, Seiya manages to punch Shiryū in the back, reviving the Dragon again, and thus starting a long and royal friendship between the two Saints.
Right after the match between Andromeda Shun and Unicorn Jabu ends, the Phoenix Bronze Saint arrives and reveals himself as Shun's older brother Ikki before he attacks Shun. Challenging the Saints as he has arrived to kill them and not participate in the tournament, Ikki is interrupted as several Black Saints wearing the same Cloth as him appear. Restricting the Bronze Saints' from moving, they are forced to watch as Ikki and the Black Saints steal the Gold Cloth. Ikki's actions towards Saori, the Graude Foundation and the Saints, prompts Seiya, Shiryū, Shun and Hyōga to work together in order to defeat Ikki and the Black Saints and reclaim the Gold Cloth. They are successful in retrieving the gauntlets and the leg parts, while Ikki and the Black Saints possess the remaining five parts of the Gold Cloth. With Seiya's Cloth heavily damaged, his frustration turns to happiness when Shiryū reveals that there is someone capable of repairing Cloths. Believing Shiryū, Seiya entrust him his Pegasus Cloth, swearing to await Shiryū's return. Later, Seiya interrupts Saori and Tatsumi during a hearing about Ikki's crimes. Seiya reveals he made a phone call to the police in the name of the Graude Foundation, borrowing their schäfer police dog Fast Wind. Certain that he will find Ikki, they set off after Fast Wind picks up a trail from Ikki's imprints on the Cloth box. Although they only find traces of Ikki's punches on a tree, Seiya attempts to help Hyōga fight Black Swan, but is forced by Hyōga's powerful Cosmo to watch along with Shun who sits next to the tree with Ikki's punches. Seiya is later visited by Saori who brings a challenge from Ikki, instructing the Bronze Saints to journey to the Death Valley where they will fight for the parts of the Gold Cloth. Arriving at the Death Valley, Seiya encounters a young boy named Kiki who has arrived with Seiya's Pegasus Cloth, which was repaired by Shiryū. Seiya is horrified when he believes Shiryū is dead, but Kiki reassures him that Shiryū was still breathing when he left. As he equips his Cloth and gathers the Gold Cloth pieces, Seiya encounters Black Pegasus.
Engaging one another in a brutal battle, Black Pegasus unleash a volley of kicks which Seiya manages to evade, before countering with a barrage of blows from his fists, barely missing Black Pegasus by an inch. Enraged, Black Pegasus throws Seiya a couple of meters to create distance, before attacking with his Black Meteor Fist, hitting Seiya and knocking him down. Believing victory belongs to him, Black Pegasus hears a bell, and is horrified to see Seiya standing behind him without a scratch. At first believing he missed Seiya with his attack, he is further shocked when Seiya reveals he was hit at least 7 or 8 times. Once more attacking, Black Pegasus unleash Black Meteor Fist, and Seiya counterattacks with his Pegasus Meteor Fist, killing Black Pegasus who, in his final dying moments, reveals that Seiya will soon die of the Black Terror. After defeating his evil counterpart, Seiya later feels the effect of the Black Terror which Black Pegasus warned him about before, noticing his skin turning dark. As he falls unconscious during Shun's battle against Black Andromeda, he cuts the chain in order for Shun to fight back and forget him. Shiryū later rescues him by puncturing Seiya's life points after defeating Black Dragon.
Seiya reappears in his Cloth to save Shun moments before Ikki attempts to deal the death blow. However, since he just recently returned from near death, Seiya collapses while charging against Ikki, realizing that he was foolish to engage such a powerful foe shortly after returning to life. However, Hyōga reveals himself to Ikki, and all four Bronze Saints are now reunited. However, the four Bronze Saints are unsuccesful in having Ikki surrender, who retaliates by first attacking Hyōga with the Phoenix Illusion Fist which is reflected by Hyōga, before later unleashing his ultimate technique Phoenix Rising Wings which knocks out the four of them. However, Seiya is able to withstand the effect of Ikki's attack, due to the Gold Cloth assembling in front of him, shielding him. Confronting Ikki, Seiya is able to overpower him, shattering his Cloth in the proccess. However, the Cloth suddenly revives itself and covers Ikki once more, much to Seiya's surprise. Ikki reveals that the Phoenix is immortal, and as such, his Cloth revives everytime it's destroyed. Fighting fiercely, Seiya is unable to scratch Ikki as he states that a move will not work twice, now that the Phoenix has been reborn stronger than before. Attempting to finish the battle, Ikki charges at Seiya but in a sudden moment, Shiryū's shield attaches itself to Seiya's left arm, effectively blocking Ikki's attack. Moments later, Shun's square chain wraps itself around Seiya's right arm, much to Ikki's shock. Engaging Ikki with the power of his friends, Seiya is finally able to overpower Ikki due to his Pegasus Meteor Fist being combined with Hyōga's Diamond Dust. When Seiya manages to finally defeat Ikki, the Bronze Saints learn that something terrible is happening in the Sanctuary. Just then, a Saint named Docrates attacks the Bronze Saints, Ikki almost fall down the mountain as it splits, and Shun grabs him before lamenting that he does not wish to lose his brother again. As 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, Shiryū and Hyōga despite their efforts. Although Seiya comes to the rescue, Docrates retreats with Saori and Tatsumi, and the Bronze Saints agree to split up, with Shiryū and Kiki heading to Death Valley to recover the other parts of the Gold Cloth, Hyōga recovering the mask, while Seiya and Shun challenge 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. Leaving Shun to deal with the henchmen, Seiya engages Docrates but all his attempts are easily deflected by the giant, who swears to avenge his little brother Cassios' humiliation at Seiya's hands. Attacking with his Heracles Mou Shou Ken, Docrates almost removes Seiya's ear, but is interrupted by Shun who brings down the arena lights on him, which only enrages him. When Hyōga finally arrives, he attacks Docrates and freezes his feet before lifting him up which allows Seiya to land a hit with his Pegasus Meteor Fist and Shun to finish him off with the Nebula Chain.
Pope Arles' minions
As 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 Hyōga exhaust himself from fighting the Sea Serpent Saint and then being stung by several bugs. As they resume, Shiryū is separated as he dives into water in order to escape a pack of bats before he is electrocuted by the Jellyfish Saint. Floating on a wooden log, Seiya and Shun are ambushed by the Jellyfish again whom Shun engages in order to buy Seiya time, but he is easily defeated when Jellyfish unleashes his electricity. He is saved when Seiya kills the Ghost Saint, but have no strength left to join Seiya to the great fortress.
Arriving at the fortress alone, Seiya is confronted by Gheist who creates an illusion with several masks of the Gold Cloth. Seiya retaliates with the Pegasus Meteor Fist, effectively breaking the illusion before facing Gheist. Attacking with her Thunder Claw, Seiya is shocked as when he remarks that is Shaina's technique. Being grievously wounded by Gheist's claws, the helmet of the Gold Cloth suddenly interferes and knocks Gheist's mask off and sends her to the ground. Breaking free, Seiya unleashes Pegasus Meteor Fist which greatly injures Gheist who dies of her wounds moments later. Emerging from the fortress victorius with the Gold Cloth helmet, Seiya is hailed by his friends who have recovered from their wounds.
While relaxing with Miho on a beach walk, Seiya is surprised to see Marin before Lizard Misty suddenly appear in front of him. Marin, revealed to be the Eagle Silver Saint, informs Seiya that Misty is a Silver Saint, and thus stronger than Seiya. Equipping his Cloth thanks to Kiki bringing it with psychokinesis, Seiya challenges Misty to a duel, but his Pegasus Meteor Fist is easily deflected. Suddenly, Marin restrains Seiya before seemingly killing him by punching him in the heart. However, it was all revealed to be an illusion and Seiya is forced to fight Misty again after Marin disappears, walking ahead without looking back. Resuming their battle, Seiya is caught off guard by Misty's Mavrou Trippa, resulting in Seiya vomiting blood, which leaves a stain on Misty while he falls into the water. Standing up, Seiya notices Misty standing naked in the water, having removed his Cloth to wash off the blood. He orders Misty to put on his Cloth again, stating he will make a miracle happen, succesfully landing a hit on Misty for the first time with the Pegasus Meteor Fist. During his next assault, Seiya unleash a new technique, Pegasus Comet Fist, pushing Misty backwards, before he decides to retaliate with everything he got. Now surprised and angered that Seiya has managed to hit him twice despite the difference between their ranks, Misty unleashes the Mavrou Trippa, ready to kill Seiya. However, Seiya manages to reflect the Mavrou Trippa, sending it back against Misty, leaving him speechless. During Misty's thinking after realizing Seiya's increasing Cosmo, Seiya appears behind him and unleash his final technique Pegasus Rolling Crush, which finally succeeds in defeating Misty who dies of his wounds after emerging from the water.
Resting at his apartment after the battle, Seiya is approached by Kiki who mentions that Marin is in danger. Feeling her Cosmo, Seiya rushes back to the beach where he killed Misty. Upon arriving, he is forced to face Whale Moses and Hound Asterion, who have tied her upside down to a pole which is slowly filling with water. He engages Moses immediately, unleashing a punch so fast that neither of the Silver Saints are capable of reacting in time, before he attempts to attack Asterion. Just then, he chases towards Marin instead, only for Moses to stand up again. Attacking, Seiya is caught and thrown in the air, suffering Moses' Kaitos Spouting Bomber, grievously injuring him. However, after Moses mentions Marin being his sister and taunts Seiya that they can die together, Seiya gains a pair of wings made from his Cosmo. Leaping at Moses, Seiya breaks his arm before brutally killing him with the Pegasus Meteor Fist.
Once more running towards Marin who is slowly beginning to drown as the water rises, Seiya is confronted by Asterion, who claims that he too must be defeated before he can save Marin. Without hesitation, Seiya charges at Asterion with a Pegasus Meteor Fist, striking Asterion directly in the stomach. However, when he turns, all Seiya sees is a tree log instead of Asterion's body. Attacking again after seeing Asterion split up into millions of images, Seiya suffers his Million Ghost Attack, facing complete defeat. After recovering from his defeat, Seiya, Hyōga and Kiki notice the message "Seiya, guard Athena" engraved in the sand. The three then travel to the Graude Foundation, where they rendezvous with Shiryū, Shun, Ikki, Tatsumi and Saori. After being told by Tatsumi of the Sagittarius Gold Saint Aiolos, the Bronze Saints realize that Saori is the incarnation of Athena.
Shortly after realizing who their goddess truly is, Centaurus Babel attacks the Bronze Saints in a violent blast of flames which Hyōga struggles to defend his comrades from. Attacking with his Pegasus Meteor Fist despite Shiryū's attempts to stop him, Seiya collapses due to his recent battles against Misty, Moses and Asterion. When Hyōga is close to facing defeat, three Saints suddenly arrive with Cloths never seen before, who introduce themselves as the Steel Saints. Land Cloth Daichi and Marine Cloth Ushio attack Babel with the Steel Hurricane while Sky Cloth Shō absorbs Babel's flames, and blasts them at Babel which leaves him vulnerable for Hyōga to attack with his Diamond Dust. After Hyōga successfully kills Babel, the three mysterious Saints seems to have vanished without a trace, leaving Saori, Tatsumi, Kiki and the Bronze Saints curious to who these mysterious Saints are.
Ophiuchus Shaina/Perseus Argol
Seiya decides to journey to the Sanctuary in order to get information. Deciding to take Shun and Shiryū with him, to Hyōga and Ikki's disappointment, the three venture on a plane. However, their plane is brought down by Spartan and the Bronze Saints find themselves in an ambush from Shaina, wearing her Ophiuchus Silver Cloth, Spartan and Perseus Argol. Wanting revenge, Shaina engages Seiya in a brutal fight, leaving Spartan and Argol to deal with the others as they wish. As the two Saints clash, Seiya is unable to hit Shaina due to her having already seen the Pegasus Meteor Fist before. However, Seiya renews his assault and manage to wound Shaina with the Pegasus Comet Fist before finishing their battle with the Pegasus Rolling Crush. Just then, Argol turn Shun to stone. Seiya and Argol charge and clash briefly before Seiya is turned to stone as well by Argol's Medusa Shield, forcing Shiryū to fight alone. When Seiya recovers along with Shun, they once more meet the Steel Saints and notice, to their horror, that Shiryū sacrificed his eyesight in order to kill Argol. Demanding to know who the Steel Saints are, Seiya eventually realizes that he does not have time to discuss with them now. Before leaving, Daichi invites them to find their headquarters, where they learn from Dr. Asamori that the Cloths of the Steel Saints are constructed, unlike the Saints' Cloths. He attempted to create these at Mitsumasa's orders, but each attempt failed. However, following Mitsumasa's death, Asamori decided to succeed in Mitsumasa's name, eventually creating the Sky Cloth, Marine Cloth, and the Land Cloth.
After Shiryū's sacrifice of his sight during the battle against Argol on the island, Seiya, Shun and Hyōga argue with Ikki over Shiryū's current state. Ikki, tired of ganging up with so many emotions involved, counterattacks when Seiya charges at him, before deciding to leave the group. Shortly after, the Bronze Saints hear Saori screaming and they rush to see their goddess being kidnapped by an army of crows. Equiping their Cloths, the Bronze Saints deal with the henchmen who attack them while Seiya chases the crows and eventually confronts Crow Jamian. Challenging Jamian, the two Saints clash briefly before Seiya is overpowered by Jamian's speed and his Black Wing Terror. Fighting back with his Pegasus Meteor Fist, Seiya easily knocks back the crows, only to realize that it was a trick by Jamian. Dozens of feathers suddenly covers Seiya and the intense weight of the feathers causes him to drop to the ground, slowly suffocating. However, when Jamian begins stomping on him, Seiya burns his Cosmo and eventually blows all the feathers off his body, horrifying Jamian with his strength. Seiya finds himself forced to chase the crows again, this time succesfully freeing Saori as they both fall. Refusing to let his goddess die, Seiya grabs Saori and brace for impact with his right arm, breaking it as they land. Jamian pursues Seiya, shortly followed by Shaina. Cornered by two Silver Saints and with his right hand broken, Seiya jumps further down the mountain in order to escape, further wounding himself.
Death Queen Island
While recovering at the hospital, Seiya is informed that Ikki has traveled all by himself to Death Queen Island in order to accept the challenge from the new leader of the Black Saints, known as Jango. Refusing to let his friend fight alone after saving his life earlier in the mountains, Seiya ventures to Death Queen Island with Shun and Hyōga, just in time to save Ikki from being killed by Black Phoenix. Engaging the Black Three, Seiya and his friends easily kill them while Ikki kills Jango. Just then, Pope Arles causes a massive volcano eruption on Death Queen Island, consuming the Bronze Saints. However, they are saved by Athena's divine Cosmo.
Following another argument with Ikki, Seiya decides to cure Shiryū's eyesight no matter what, and travels to Jamir in order to find Mu and ask him for a cure. He meets up with Kiki instead who reveals two large mountains where the Water of Life is. While climbing, Seiya encounters several tough obstacles along the way before he finally find the legendary water. At his arrival, he rescues Kiki from Tarantula Arachne before confronting Arachne. However, due to not wearing his own Cloth, Seiya is easily underestimated and defeated by the strange but powerful Cosmo and Arachne's Tarantula Net, which slowly drains Seiya of his Cosmo. Fortunately, Shō arrives in time to assist, engaging Arachne. Burning his Cosmo at Shō's encouragement, Seiya is able to break free from the Tarantula Net, equipping his Pegasus Cloth which arrives at that moment, easily killing Arachne with his Pegasus Meteor Fist. Ready to travel back to Shiryū at the Five Old Peaks with the Water of Life, Seiya is suddenly stopped by Shō who reveals that the helmet of the Gold Cloth has gone missing. Entrusting the water to Kiki, Seiya accompanies Shō back to Japan.
Ophiuchus Shaina/Leo Aiolia
Recovering at the hospital still after recovering the Water of Life and gaining a fewer along the way, Seiya is ambushed by Shaina and barely makes it away from her claws before jumping through the roof with her in pursuit. While the two argue over Shaina's duty as a female Saint due to Seiya having seen her face, they are suddenly interrupted by a massive amount of Cosmo which draw the two Saints further into the forest. When they recover, they are confronted by the Leo Gold Saint Aiolia who has been tasked by Pope Arles to destroy the Bronze Saints and retrieve the Sagittarius Gold Cloth. Urging Seiya to run, Shaina unsuccesfully charge at Aiolia and is knocked out after receiving a blast of energy from Aiolia's finger before Seiya also falls before Aiolia's powers. Desperately trying to fight back, Seiya unleash his Pegasus Meteor Fist which only seem to move through Aiolia, who reveals that Bronze Saints move at the speed of sound, while Gold Saints are capable of moving at the speed of light. With or without his Cloth, Seiya realizes that he is no match for a Gold Saint. Aiolia attacks Seiya with another lightspeed attack, but is shocked when Shaina steps between them. Furious for Aiolia striking a woman, Seiya burns his Cosmo and punches Aiolia in the face. Agreeing that it was his mistake for not withdrawing his fist, Aiolia decides to spare Seiya's life for now, because of Shaina's love for him.
Canis Major Sirius/Musca Dio/Heracles Algethi
As he takes Shaina and prepares to return to Sanctuary, Canis Major Sirius, Musca Dio and Heracles Algethi appear. Algethi and Dio attack Seiya with their Cornephoros and Dead End Fly techniques. Seiya, heavily wounded, realizes that he is unable to fight three Silver Saints at the same time without his Cloth. Agreeing that all three deserves an equal right to avenge the Silver Saints' deaths, Algethi launches Seiya in the air, the three ready to finish him off. Just then, the Sagittarius Gold Cloth arrives and covers Seiya, who quickly kills the three Silver Saints at once.
Aiolia, shocked at what just happened, decides to take Seiya more seriously and attacks with full force, unleashing his Lightning Bolt. However, Seiya is able to evade the attack thanks to the Gold Cloth, and retaliates with his Pegasus Meteor Fist, now at the speed of light, finally landing a succesful hit on Aiolia. While the two Saints resume their battle, Hyōga and Shun intervene, only to be knocked out by a furious Aiolia as they tell the truth about the Pope. After Saori arrives, Aiolia tries to kill her in order to test her true powers as the goddess of wisdom and war, but Seiya steps between them, grabbing the Lightning Bolt with his hand, stating that he saw it clearly. Just then, the soul of Aiolos increases the energy in the attack before Seiya launches it at Aiolia again, who accepts his defeat shortly after. When Aiolia leaves after redeeming himself for his true goddess, he also informs Seiya about the Gold Cloths and the truth about them, before taking Shaina with him to Sanctuary in order to heal her wounds.
The battle of the twelve Houses
Realizing that they must stop Pope Arles' evil plans of world domination, Seiya and his friends accompany Saori to the Sanctuary. Upon arriving, they are greeted by a guide who reveals that in order to reach the Grand Pope's Chambers, they must go through twelve Houses of the Zodiac, each guarded by a Gold Saint. Before they are able to start their journey, the guide, revealed to be Sagitta Ptolemy attacks Athena and the Bronze Saints with his Phantom Arrow. Seeing through the illusion, Seiya quickly retaliates with his Pegasus Meteor Fist, killing the Silver Saint. According to Ptolemy's dying words, Seiya and his friends have only twelve hours to reach the Grand Pope's Chambers and bring him back down to Athena in order to remove the arrow, since he is the only one capable of doing it. And if they don't make it all twelve Houses within those twelve hours, Saori will die. Tasked with the mission to save Saori, the battle of the twelve Houses begins.
House of Aries
Upon reaching the House of Aries, they find it guarded by Mu, revealed as the Aries Gold Saint. Mistaking him for an enemy since he is standing between them and the staircase leading onward, Shiryū challenges Mu, disappointed of his actions. However, Mu easily deflects Shiryū's attack, and shatters his already damaged shield. Seiya prepares himself, but Kiki arrives and assures them Mu only wished to show them how damaged their Cloths are after all their battles, and that if they fight a Gold Saint with those Cloths, they have no chance of victory. Accepting Mu's offer to repair their Cloths, the Bronze Saints wait an hour, Shun noticing the fire clock while waiting. Equipping their newly repaired Cloths, Seiya, Hyōga, Shiryū and Shun press on. Before they leave, Mu reveals the ultimate Cosmo of the Gold Saints, known as the Seventh Sense, which is the reason to their unimaginable strength. Realizing that they can not defeat the Gold Saints without awakening their Seventh Sense, the Bronze Saints finally pass through the House of Aries, heading towards the House of Taurus next.
House of Taurus
The Bronze Saints charge at the entrance to the House of Taurus, but are knocked back by an unseen force. Getting back up and wondering what just happened, its guardian Taurus Aldebaran emerges from the shadows, laughing as he states they will never pass through his temple without defeating him. Seiya takes the challenge straight ahead and tries to distract Aldebaran with a Pegasus Meteor Fist, in order to allow his friends passage. However, Aldebaran easily knocks all three out by raising his arms and unleashing a ray of light, leaving Seiya to fight him alone. Without hesitation, Seiya charges at Aldebaran, attacking once more with his Pegasus Meteor Fist, but the blow is easily deflected, before Aldebaran brutally beats him far beneath the ground with one kick. Seeming defeated, Seiya remembers the teachings of Marin about the Iai sword technique, grasping the power to stand up once more. Stating that he will break Aldebaran's stance, he attacks once more, unleashing the Pegasus Meteor Fist with the power of a Big Bang which finally breaks Aldebaran's stance, pushing him with such force that he crashes against the wall behind him. Now that he has broken Aldebaran's stance, Seiya states that he will break one the horns on his helmet. Aldebaran, annoyed at Seiya's attitude but impressed by his feat, finally attacks Seiya with his Great Horn, knocking Seiya to the ground again. However, to Aldebaran's shock, Seiya stands up laughing, stating that he sees the movement of Aldebaran's attack. With his Cosmo increasing everytime he is knocked down, Seiya manages to block Aldebaran's next Great Horn assault, attempting to deflect it. However, it is too powerful and Seiya is once more knocked down to the ground. While Aldebaran states that Seiya will become more powerful than all twelve Gold Saints if his Cosmo keeps increasing, Seiya once more stands up. Awakening his Seventh Sense, Seiya blocks Aldebaran's final Great Horn assault and succesfully reflects the attack, creating a shockwave which blasts both Saints. Although his Cosmo disappear for a moment, Seiya suddenly appears behind Aldebaran, finally breaking the right horn on his helmet as promised. Accepting defeat, Aldebaran grants Seiya passage, and he resumes his journey while his friends must work together to handle Aldebaran as well.
House of Gemini
Shiryū, Hyōga and Shun arrive at the House of Gemini, but they suddenly notice Seiya coming out of the temple. Noticing that he is at the entrance again, Seiya reveals that he has tried to break through the temple, and thought he got out when he instead arrived at the entrance over and over again. Following another attempt and noticing the Gemini temple suddenly offering two entrances, Seiya and Shiryū head for one entrance, while Hyōga and Shun take the other entrance. Seiya and Shiryū encounters the Gemini Gold Saint at last. Seiya prepares to fight, but Shiryū sees through the illusion and stops him from attacking. Asking Seiya to trust him, Shiryū charges straight at Gemini to Seiya's horror. However, Seiya notices that this time they truly made it to the other side. Worried about Shun and Hyōga since they both have eyesight and thus are unable to notice the illusion in front of them, Shiryū assures him they will be fine. Believing in their friends, the two Bronze Saints resume their journey to the House of Cancer.
House of Cancer
Arriving at the House of Cancer, Seiya and Shiryū encounters Cancer Deathmask who shows them all the faces of people he has killed, including children. Preparing to strike Deathmask in anger, Seiya is stopped by Shiryū who sends him ahead while fighting Deathmask by himself. Unleashing his Pegasus Meteor Fist, Seiya manages to distract Deathmask long enough to pass through, believing Shiryū will emerge victorious from the fight.
House of Leo
Reaching the House of Leo, Seiya is relieved to see Aiolia guarding the temple as he was certain of. Getting straight to the point, Seiya urges Aiolia to allow him passage through the House of Leo, but Aiolia states that he will kill anyone who tries to pass. Shocked to hear his answer after swearing allegiance to Athena, Seiya is unable to react in time when Aioria unleashes a strike at the speed of light. Seiya, realizing that Aiolia just struck him with the Lightning Bolt, finds himself unable to move. After noticing some soldiers leave at Aiolia's orders, Seiya begs for Aiolia to tell him what's going on. Rather than an answer, Seiya is struck by another Lightning Bolt. Realizing that he must awaken his Seventh Sense again in order to see through Aiolia's lightspeed attack, Seiya attacks him. However, Seiya suffers another wave of the Lightning Bolt while charging. During their battle, Seiya is finally able to see through Aiolia's Lightning Bolt after receiving Marin's Cosmo, who had arrived to help Seiya but fell during her fight with Jaki. Avoiding Aiolia's attacks, Seiya finally lands a kick on his face for the first time. Taking a moment to rest while thinking about his increasing Cosmo due to Marin, Aiolia appears behind Seiya. Now with the red eyes of a demon and a different personality than before, he attacks Seiya in a wild frenzy, unleashing two rows of the Lightning Bolt, breaking Seiya's right leg. Desperately fighting back, Seiya unsuccesfully unleashes a Pegasus Meteor Fist, before suffering Aiolia's Lightning Bolt again. Hearing the voice of Shiryū, Seiya manages to stand up again. Asking once more what happened to Aiolia after he brought Shaina back to the Sanctuary, Seiya is tortured by Aiolia who unleashes dozens of lightspeed attacks and waves of the Lightning Bolt. Still not willing to give up, Seiya suffers Aiolia's ultimate attack, Lightning Plasma. Before Aiolia is able to deal the killing blow, Cassios arrives at the House of Leo. First stating that he wishes revenge on Seiya for his ear, Cassios suddenly strikes at Aiolia instead, willingly sacrificing himself in order to awake Aioria, stating that he does not wish Shaina to be sad if Seiya dies. After Aiolia grievously wounds Cassios, he is about to end Seiya's life with the Lightning Plasma, but Cassios steps between the two Saints, taking the full blast himself. Seeing as Cassios dies, Seiya finally awakens his Seventh Sense once more, performing a Pegasus Meteor Fist which triggers a Big Bang powerful enough to reopen Aioria's eyes, before reuniting with Shun and Shiryū. Having his broken leg healed by Aiolia, the Bronze Saints resume their journey, heading onward to the House of Virgo with a warning from Aiolia: To not let Shaka open his eyes, no matter what.
House of Libra
At the House of Libra, the Bronze Saints finally find Hyōga who has been sealed in a huge coffin of ice, made by Aquarius Camus, Crystal Saint's master. Desperately trying to save his friend, Seiya is unable to even crack the ice with his Pegasus Meteor Fist, the ice being said to not break by even the force of all twelve Gold Saints combined.
Suddenly, the Libra Cloth appears to give them a helping hand. Seeing as Hyoga is almost out of energy and Shiryū and Seiya are more wounded, Shun decides to stay behind to heal Hyōga, willingly sacrificing his life if he has to.
House of Scorpio
Arriving at the House of Scorpio, Seiya and Shiryū are confronted by Scorpio Milo, the Gold Saint said to have destroyed Andromeda Island. Fighting fiercly, Seiya watches Shiryū's Rozan Rising Dragon being easily reflected before Shiryū is knocked to the ground.
Despite reaching his Seventh Sense, Seiya is only able to scratch Milo's face with his Pegasus Comet Fist. Refusing to accept defeat, Seiya charges with Pegasus Meteor Fist, but Milo attacks so fast that Seiya does not notice the attack before a few seconds later, crashing into the wall. Attempting to attack him at the same time, Seiya and Shiryū combine their Pegasus Meteor Fist and Rozan Rising Dragon techniques. However, Milo counterattacks with his Scarlet Needle, paralyzing the two Bronze Saints with intense pain.
Just then, Hyōga arrives with an unconscious Shun, sends Seiya and Shiryū ahead with Shun before he engages Milo in a one-on-one duel to the death.
House of Sagittarius
During their run toward the House of Sagittarius, Seiya and Shiryū hear a resonating chime which is heard across all of the Sanctuary. Arriving at the House of Sagittarius, Seiya is surprised to see that the resonance was because the Sagittarius Gold Cloth has returned to its House after 13 years of absence. Moving closer to the Cloth that has already saved him several times, Seiya is shocked when the Sagittarius Cloth suddenly points its arrow at him, following him as he moves. Not understanding what's going on, Seiya is forced to drop Shun, backing against a wall when the Sagittarius Cloth suddenly release the arrow, shooting directly towards Seiya. However, the arrow missed him by an inch, revealing a large hole in the wall behind Seiya. After Shun recovers and Hyōga rendezvous with his friends, the four reunited Bronze Saints decide to go through the wall, seing as there is no other exits of the House. Traveling across a large tunnel, they are horrified when they notice the roof slowly lowering itself on them. With no other choice, they are forced to abandon Shiryū who seemingly sacrifices himself in order to let the others pass. Moving onward, they are ambushed by a large amount of stalactites which Shun destroys with his chains. After falling down from a bridge made by mist, they reach a large cave which quickly starts flowing with water. Seiya and Shun use this in order to reach the exit which a moment ago was unreachable, while Hyōga stays behind to freeze the flood. Finally, Seiya and Shun find their path blocked by a large gap. Using his chains, Shun grabs hold of a stalactite in the roof, swinging them across. However, halfway through, the stalactite starts to disintegrate because of Shun's chains, forcing him to throw Seiya across while he falls down the chasm. Barely grabbing hold of the ledge, Seiya unfortunately falls down as well, landing on a ledge further down. Refusing to give up, Seiya attempts to climb up, but keeps injuring himself and falling each time. Now beginning to lose hope, Seiya suddenly feels a warm and gentle Cosmo covering him. Inspired by this warm feeling, Seiya burns his Cosmo again, finally climbing up the ledge. To his surprise, he sees the Sagittarius Gold Cloth standing in front of him, before he is all of a sudden teleported back to the House of Sagittarius. Reuniting with his friends who have survived as well, Seiya notices Sagittarius firing another arrow at a nearby wall, revealing the last testament of Aiolos. Moved to tears, Seiya reads the message: Young men. I entrust Athena to you. Realizing that Aiolos must have been waiting for them all this time in order for them to see his last message, and the traps were tests to see if they were worthy of being Athena'a Saints, Seiya and his friends make a promise to always protect Athena from evil. Finally, the exit reveals itself and the Bronze Saints continue towards the House of Capricorn.
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 beam of light splits the earth, prompting Shiryū to push Seiya, Hyoga and Shun to the other side while he remains at the House of Capricorn to face off against Capricorn Shura, the man responsible for splitting the ground between them. Forced to continue towards the House of Aquarius at Hyōga's orders, they notice a dragon soaring into the sky, realizing to their greatest horror that Shiryū, in a sacrificial move to defeat Shura, used a forbidden technique which kills both the victim and the one who unleashes it. When the dragon fades away, Seiya, Shun and Hyōga are left in tears, saddened by their friend's death.
House of Aquarius
Having little time to mourn Shiryū's sacrifice, Seiya, Hyōga and Shun find themselves confronted by Camus outside the House of Aquarius. Sending Seiya and Shun ahead, Hyōga stays at the House of Aquarius to settle things with his master. While making a run for the House or Pisces, the two Bronze Saints stop when Shun notice snow falling down. Realizing that Hyōga is saying goodbye to them, Seiya reluctantly orders Shun to not look back, stating that they only have one House left.
House of Pisces
Arriving at the House of Pisces, Seiya and Shun are confronted by Aphrodite, the man truly responsible for killing Shun's master Albiore.
Wanting revenge for his master and Seiya to move onward, Shun remains at the House of Pisces to fight Aphrodite while Seiya moves onward, having finally passed through the the twelve Houses of the zodiac.
Demon Rose Path
While charging towards the Grand Pope's Chambers, Seiya notices the entire path leading from the House of Pisces to the Grand Pope's Chambers are covered by Aphrodite's Royal Demon Rose. Refusing to give up after getting this far, Seiya is stung by the thorns of the roses while desperately running through the roses, also breathing in the pollen at the same time. Eventually, Seiya collapses to exhaustion, but Marin arrives in order to save him. Giving him her mask, she attempts to carry him to the Pope's Chambers, but collapses herself to the pollen she inhales from the roses. In anger, Seiya gives her mask back before removing all the roses with his Pegasus Meteor Fist. Rushing back to Marin, Seiya is tempted for a brief moment to see if Marin might be his long lost sister, but refrains from the thought. Just then, Shaina appears and promises him that she will look after Marin while he goes onward.
Grand Pope's Chamber
Finally reaching the Grand Pope's Chambers, Seiya is shocked when Pope Arles removed his mask, revealing a face which bears no traces of evil, despite all his actions. Desperate to save Athena and angered that his friends sacrificed themselves for him, Seiya charges at the Pope, hitting him right in the stomach which seems to do no damage at all. Refusing to listen to Arles' excuses, Seiya unleashes Pegasus Meteor Fist which only passes through Arles' body. To Seiya's confusion, the Pope cries, lamenting for being unable to rescue Athena. Arles then instructs the Bronze Saint to retrieve the shield of Athena which is at the statue of Athena behind his chambers. Seiya, noticing something strange about Arles, decides to move onward as ordered, but he is suddenly told to stop. Turning around, Seiya sees to see Arles' hair changing color from blue to white, while his eyes turn blood-red. In a sudden movement, Arles strikes Seiya with a powerful lightspeed attack. Oblivious to what just happened, Seiya attacks with Pegasus Meteor Fist, but Arles removes his robes and summons the Gemini Gold Cloth, revealing himself as the Gemini Gold Saint. Seiya, while realizing that the Pope was one of the Gold Saints all along, is left defenseless when Arles attacks with his Another Dimension. However, due to Arles' personalities struggling for control, Seiya is able to survive the attack, and once more finds himself in the Pope's Chambers. Furious at being interrupted, Arles decides to let Seiya live, although he removes Seiya's senses. However, Seiya is still able to burn his Cosmo to a point where he briefly manages to knock out the Pope with a Pegasus Meteor Fist moving at the speed of light. But Arles quickly stands up, prompting Seiya to use his Pegasus Rolling Crush in a desperate move, which wounds Seiya but barely harms Arles. His final attack being useless, Seiya attempts to stand up again, despite his strength running out. Being dealt a heavy punch in the stomach, Seiya's helmet is destroyed when he crashes down to the ground. Unable to move, Seiya awaits his death. However, he is saved in the last minute by Ikki, who has returned to the Sanctuary to fight for Athena. Managing to stand up again, Seiya slowly makes way for Athena's statue while Ikki desperately holds back Arles.
Statue of Athena
Moving onward to the statue of Athena, Seiya finally sees the shield in her left hand. Struggling to reach it due to his wounds, he is encouraged by his friends to keep going, eventually grabbing the shield. When Seiya sees Athena, he lifts up the shield as Arles arrives and knocks him unconscious. However, the shield barely manages to save Athena, removing the golden arrow in her chest. Now with no other goal as Athena is saved, Arles, now revealed by Rōshi to be Gemini Saga, brutally beats Seiya swearing to slowly tear him apart. However, before he is able to land the final blow, Ikki once more arrives to resume the battle and defend Seiya, although he is easily defeated. Shortly after, Saori arrives along with the remaining Gold Saints, Shiryū, Hyōga, Shun and the Bronze Saints from the Galaxian Wars, Seiya, with encouragement from Saori, Shun, Shiryū, Hyōga, Ikki, Aldebaran and Aiolia, manages to stand up once more, burning his Cosmo to the Seventh Sense along with his friends, and together they finally destroy Saga's evil side with Seiya's final Pegasus Meteor Fist, before falling unconscious, having won the battle of the twelve Houses of the Zodiac at last.
A New Pegasus
With the Bronze Cloths shattered after the Sanctuary Battle, Seiya and his friends rendezvous with the Gold Saints after recovering. Noticing all the Gold Saints slitting their wrists, Seiya remembers that a Cloth can only be restored by someone who offers their blood. Overjoyed that the Gold Saints are repairing their Cloths as a sign of gratitude for saving Athena, Seiya embraces his new Pegasus Cloth, thanking his new friends for doing this.
Zeta Mizar Syd
When a God Warrior from Asgard named Mizar Syd arrives with orders to kill Athena, Seiya appears shortly after Shun restrains their new enemy with his chains. Dealing a powerful kick, Seiya successfully throws Syd to the ground. Preparing to challenge Syd in a one-on-one duel, he is surprised when Jabu informs him that Syd defeated Aldebaran in one hit. Burning his Cosmo, Seiya is easily knocked to the ground by Syd's Viking Tiger Claw, surviving with lesser wounds thanks to his new Pegasus Cloth. Seiya then remains behind while Shun decides to challenge Syd in a nearby forest. Seiya shows up again after Ikki has arrived and rescued Shun, stating that he will be the one to defeat Syd. Burning his Cosmo again and stating that Syd should not underestimate him, Seiya attacks with his Pegasus Meteor Fist, which Syd easily blocks. However, Seiya focuses his attacks, eventually surpassing Syd's speed and dealing him moderate damage. In spite of landing a successful hit, Seiya notices several claw marks on his body as well, not understanding when they appeared. Both combatants burn their Cosmos, ready to fight again, but are interrupted when Saori arrives, followed by Shiryū and Hyōga, wearing their new Cloths. Syd, now aware of the number of Saints he must defeat in order to kill Athena, decides to retreat for the time being, taunting Seiya before leaving. Back at the Kido mansion, Saori and the Bronze Saints discuss the God Warriors of Asgard, who are led by Polaris Hilda, the High Priest who prays to the Norse God Odin for the ice to never melt. Wondering why Hilda would turn to such evil acts, Saori and the Bronze Saints decide to set out for Asgard in order to uncover this new threat.
Remove the Nibelungen Ring
Arriving in Asgard, Seiya, Shun and Kiki rendezvous with Saori and Hyōga, also meeting Hilda's little sister Freya. While discussing Hilda's current state, they are suddenly ambushed by the arrival of Hilda, accompanied by all seven God Warriors. Evading Hilda's blasts first, Seiya engages Dubhe Siegfried in a clash of Cosmo while Saori, Shun and Hyōga clash with Hilda, Mime and Syd respectively. Eventually, their clash ends and Hilda reveals a golden ring on her finger. Saori immediately recognizes it as the Nibelungen Ring, revealing that is the reason why Hilda is evil. Having heard of it too, Seiya understands that they must remove the Nibelungen Ring from Hilda's finger, or she will never return to normal.
Before they can begin their mission, the Bronze Saints notice Saori stepping down to the bottom of the stairs, taking Hilda's place and keeping the ice from melting. However, according to Hilda, Saori may only prevent the ice from melting for no more than half a day.
With encouraging words from Saori that they will succeed due to their past battles in the twelve Houses, the Bronze Saints immediately rush towards the Valhalla Palace.
Gamma Phecda Thor
While running, they notice that the path splits up into several directions. Before they are able to make a decision, two massive axes swing towards them, smashing the ice behind them. Noticing a silhouette in the distance, they find themselves confronted by the giant God Warrior Phecda Thor, blocking their path. Seiya watches as Shun and Hyōga's attacks fail to even scratch him, before Shun is dealt a powerful blast of electricity. Seeing no other options, Seiya attempts to send them ahead while he distracts Thor. Retaliating against Thor's axes with his Pegasus Meteor Fist, Seiya seemingly pushes the axes back, but it is revealed that Thor changed their direction, knocking Shun and Hyōga unconscious. Now left to fight Thor alone, Seiya barely evades his axes, but before he has the chance to retaliate, Thor charges at Seiya with a Titanic Hercules, moving too fast for Seiya to see, and he falls down a long valley before crashing into the ice. However, when Thor attempts to crush Seiya's head, he manages to grab his leg, stating that the battle has only started. Struggling to hold back the giant leg, Seiya barely evades Thor's next attack before desperately retaliating with his Pegasus Meteor Fist, which is easily deflected by Thor. Terrified at the sight of his attack being so easily deflected, Seiya is knocked out by the next Titanic Hercules. Beginning to lose hope and attempting to find a solution on how to defeat Thor, Seiya is encouraged by Marin who reminds him that because of his determination to save Athena during the battle of the Twelve Houses, and his awakening of the Seventh Sense, Seiya blocked Aldebaran's Great Horn, and saw through Aiolia's lightspeed attacks. Confident that he will win, no matter the opponent, Seiya pursues Thor before he attempts to kill Shun and Hyōga. Filed with new determination, Seiya focuses his senses and finally sees the trace of Thor' s Titanic Hercules, barely evading the attack and grabbing Thor's right arm. Seiya's first opponent in Asgard is the gigantic God Warrior Thor. Taking out Shun and Hyoga with his Mjolnir Hammer, Thor launches the hammers at Seiya as well, but he is able to dodge them before he tries to retaliate. Just then, Thor prepares another technique right away, launching his Titanic Hercules, which sends Seiya down the icy mountains. Thor tries to crush Seiya's body, but the Bronze Saint instead grabs the foot of the God Warrior, stating that the battle has simply started, evading the giant's second attack, retaliating with his Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken which is easily deflected, and Thor launches another Titanic Hercules against the Bronze Saint.
During the battle, Marin reminds Seiya of how he managed to awaken his Seventh Sense while fighting the Gold Saints, and with that in mind, Seiya stand up once again. The God Warrior, impressed and annoyed by Seiya's bravery, decides to kill him once and for all, but Seiya manages to see the Titanic Hercules this time, evading the attack and grabbing Thor's arm, before he plunges the God Warrior into the ground, leaving Thor shocked at what just happened.
As he stands up from the ice, Seiya takes the chance to finally land a Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken which seems to damage Thor, sending him into the icy mountains. Thinking he has won, Seiya rushes to Hyoga and Shun, but he suddenly notice a gigantic Cosmo from the ice rubble, and Thor once more attacks Seiya, this time with a far more powerful Cosmo, which leaves Seiya unable to see through the Titanic Hercules, and he is defeated once again.
Before Seiya faces complete defeat, Shiryu arrives to save his friend in the nick of time, before informing him about the Nibelungen Ring.
In order to destroy the ring, they must defeat all 7 God Warriors in order to get the Balmung Sword which is the only thing capable of saving Hilda.
Resuming his attacks against Thor, Seiya is easily defeated once again and falls down the icy mountains, where he feels Athena's Cosmo as she talks to him, reminding him of the miracles he accomplished with his Cosmo.
Refusing to accept defeat, Seiya once more pursues Thor and is for the first time able to really wound the God Warrior with his Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken, before managing to reflect Thor's Titanic Hercules, leaving the God Warrior shocked.
With the two combatants finally reaching the end of their battle, both charge with their Cosmo at maximum, with Seiya emerging victorius and Thor dies, confident that Seiya will be able to save Hilda and Asgard.
Shortly after Mime's defeat, Seiya suddenly feels the Cosmo of Marin disappearing. Rushing to her last known location, Seiya encounters Alberich who just defeated the Silver Saint, trapping her inside an amethyst.
Furious, Seiya charges straight at Alberich and seems to wound him greatly. Thinking him as one of the easiest God Warriors and that he should have no problem winning this battle, Seiya underestimates Alberich, but the God Warrior tries to launch a surprise attack against Seiya, but the Bronze Saint simply retaliates with his Pegasus Rolling Crash.
Seiya demands the Odin Sapphire from Alberich, but the God Warrior simply smirks and says that if Seiya kills him, Marin will never be rescued from the amethyst she's trapped in. Finding himself placed in a corner, Seiya apologize to Marin and once more launch an attack in anger. However, Alberich is able to dodge the attack this time and summons his Flaming Sword, fighting at a faster pace which Seiya seems to struggle against.
Tricking Seiya once more, Alberich is able to cut his shoulder and legs, which Seiya states as cowardly. Alberich simply says that he will use any means neccesary to win the battle, and tries to charge at Seiya once more, but the Bronze Saint retaliates, knocking the sword out of his hand, but at the cost of further wounding himself.
Exhausted and unable to fight back, Seiya faces a crushing defeat when Alberich uses Amethyst Shield, leaving Seiya to the same fate as Marin. He is, however, rescued after Shiryu kills the God Warrior after a lengthy battle.
When Seiya arrives at the statue of Odin, he encounters Siegfried and attack the God Warrior, in spite of already being wounded from his previous battles with Thor and Alberich. In spite of fighting with everything he has, he is easily defeated by the mighty God Warrior.
However, after Ikki fought and also lost to Siegfried, Seiya stand up once more and burns his Cosmo in order to achieve a miracle that will allow him to win. However, it is not enough and Siegfried retaliates with his Dragon Bravest Blizzard.
In a sudden moment, Shaina tries to shield Seiya and they are both attacked and knocked out. When they recover, they see Shiryu challenging Siegfried, fighting a violent battle between two dragons. Although Shiryu is exhausted, he is able to reveal Siegfried's weakness, before collapsing to his injuries.
Once more standing up, Seiya tries to fight back and attack Siegfried's weak spot, but as he struggles to defeat the God Warrior, he is instead simply knocked back once more. However, he was still successful though in landing several hits on Siegfried's God Robe, wounding the God Warrior. With his friends sending him their Cosmo, Seiya once more stands up, shocking Siegfried.
Burning his Cosmo to the maximum, Seiya is successful in reaching his Seventh Sense and finally overpower Siegfried's Dragon Bravest Blizzard with his Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken, reaching the God Warrior's weak spot and winning the battle.
Shortly after defeating Siegfried, the Marina General Sorrento arrives, informing them of Poseidon's plot to rule the surface world through Hilda. Refusing to accept this, Seiya challenges Sorrento but is no match as his Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken only seem to pass through the Marina General.
However, Siegfried resumes the battle instead and sacrifice himself after giving Seiya the final Odin Sapphire.
After Siegfried's sacrifice to defeat Sorrento, Seiya tries to get the Odin Robe, but Hilda refuse to allow this to happen, and viciously attacks the Bronze Saint with her Cosmo. Refusing to let their friend die, Shiryu, Hyoga and Shun all step between Seiya and Hilda, using themselves as human shields against Hilda's attacks.
When Seiya reach the stairsteps to Odin's statue, Hilda tries to throw her spear at the Bronze Saint, only for Ikki to step between the two instead.
Shortly after, Seiya is also sent down the mountain, before being encouraged by Saga to once more climb back up and fight as a Saint of Athena. At that moment, the Odin Robe arrives and wrap itself around Seiya, granting him the use of the Balmung Sword which is capable of destroying the Nibelungen Ring.
With newfound strength, Seiya retaliates against the Nibelungen Ring's power and is about to destroy it as Hilda taunts Seiya that destroying the ring will also kill her. Hesitating, Seiya is caught off guard and Hilda launches a surprise attack against the Bronze Saint, knocking him unconscious.
However, the soul of Odin encourages Seiya to not hesitate and destroy the Ring once and for all. Finally gaining the strength to do so, he manages to slice directly at the ring, but seemingly kills Hilda in the proccess.
Devastated at having killed the one who could prevent the ice in Asgard from melting, Seiya and the other Bronze Saints are surprised to suddenly see Hilda stand up again. Mistaking her for an enemy, they ready themselves for another fight as she approaches the Odin Robe. Grabbing the sword, she instead starts to pray for the ice to not melt, having finally regained her kind and gentle personality again.
Making way back to Athena, 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. Upon recovering, 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.
North Pacific Mammoth Pillar
Hearing this, Seiya and Shun split up, with Seiya heading toward the North Pacific Mammoth Pillar where he finds himself challenged by the Marina General Baian. Underestimating his opponent, Seiya charge at the General, only to find his Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken reflected by strange waves.
In a sudden moment, Baian appears behind Seiya, using his God Breath which launches Seiya into the wall with a mighty force. Stating that he will simply stand up endlessly until Baian is defeated, the General use his Rising Billows, which sends Seiya back to the surface.
However, he is able to return back to the Mammoth Pillar and attack Baian with a greater Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken, leaving cracks on his barrier. Stating that he once fought Misty who had the same ability, Seiya manages to overpower the General before his Cloth suddenly starts to glow like a Gold Cloth.
Remembering that when the Gold Saints repaired their Cloths with their blood, they also added their soul and Cosmo, making the Bronze Cloths as durable and powerful as the Gold Cloths when reaching maximum power.
With his newfound strength realized, Seiya is able to crack Baian's Scale with his punches, before Baian once more tries to kill the Bronze Saint with his God Breath.
At that time, Hyoga arrives and is told by Seiya to not interfere in their battle, stating that an attack never works twice against a Saint. Enraged, Baian attempts to use the Rising Billows, but Seiya awakens his Seventh Sense and retaliates faster than Baian is able to attack, and further cracks Baian's Scale with his Pegasus Sui Sei Ken, defeating the General at last.
When Shiryu arrives as well, Seiya informs them of their mission to destroy the Mammoth Pillars in order to save Athena. As the two Bronze Saints move on and split up, Seiya resumes his quest to destroy the Pillar, only for his attacks to have no effect at all. Deciding to use all his Cosmo and take the Pillar down with him, Kiki arrives in time with the Libra Cloth to help the Bronze Saints. Using one of Dohko's shields, Seiya is finally able to destroy the North Pacific Mammoth Pillar.
Antarctic Mammoth Pillar
While Seiya search for the next Pillar, he suddenly encounters Marin who run away after seeing him. When Seiya arrives at the Antarctic Mammoth Pillar, he sees Marin again who convinces him that she is his sister Seika.
After Seiya share a hug with his sister, the shadow of Marin change to a mysterious figure before Seiya suddenly is stabbed by Marin, who reveals herself to be a false image created by Kasa.
Throne Room of Poseidon
When Seiya later recovers, he notice that the Pillar has already been destroyed, but before he can go to the next Pillar, he senses Shaina's Cosmo disappearing, so he quickly travels to find her. When he arrives, he finds himself at the throne room of Poseidon, before seeing the sea god in person and a defeated Shaina.
Charging straight at the sea god with his Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken, Seiya is easily defeated and almost killed as Shiryu and Hyoga arrive to defend their friend, although they are easily beaten too. Later, the Sagittarius Cloth come to Seiya's aid, but his attacks are still easily deflected.
Attempting to shoot Poseidon with the Sagittarius arrow, Seiya is shocked when Poseidon simply reflects it and the arrow pierce Seiya's chest.
Removing the arrow and preparing to shoot Poseidon once again, Seiya states that he will do it over and over again until he succeeds. Releasing the arrow, only to see it reflected, Seiya awaits his death but Shaina suddenly intervenes, taking the arrow in his stead.
Mourning and stating that she does not want Seiya to die, Seiya shoots again as Shaina says she will be his shield. Once more reflecting the arrow, Seiya, Shaina and Poseidon are shocked to see as Shiryu steps between them this time, taking the arrow to his chest.
Shortly after, Hyoga and Shun also stand between Seiya and Poseidon, giving Seiya their Cosmo which finally allows him to shoot Poseidon's crown off, as he is unable to deflect the Cosmo of the five Saints combined.
Reaching the Main Breadwinner, the Saints are attacked by Poseidon again, now fully awoken. When Poseidon tries to kill Seiya, Hyoga steps between and is given the Aquarius Gold Cloth to fight with.
Shortly after, Shiryu dons the Libra Gold Cloth and the three Saints combine their Cosmo and manages to stun Poseidon with the Pegasus Sui Sei Ken, Aurora Execution, and Rozan Sho Ryu Ha, before they try to destroy the Main Breadwinner, although they are unsuccessful, damaging only the Libra weapons.
When Poseidon once more stand up and prepares to kill them, Ikki suddenly arrives and restrain the god while urging them to hurry up and save Athena, being unable to hold of Poseidon for long. Gathering their Cosmo to him, Seiya charge straight at the Main Breadwinner.
Shortly after Poseidon defeats Ikki and Shun who arrived to protect Ikki, the four Bronze Saints all burn their Cosmo to the maximum, sending it to Seiya, allowing him to reflect the attack from Poseidon's trident. Finally, Seiya manage to destroy the Main Breadwinner and succesfully rescue Athena.
When they emerge from the ruins of the Main Breadwinner, Poseidon is furious at having failed to kill Athena, and attempts to throw his trident at Athena. However, Seiya steps between the two deities, taking the trident into his chest, severely wounding him. As he removes the trident, he collapses unconscious to his injuries.
After Athena succesfully seals Poseidon, she use her Cosmo to bring her and all the Saints back home to the surface, ending the battle against Poseidon.
House of Aries
After the battle against Poseidon, Seiya arrives at the Sanctuary, shocked at finding Mu wounded and beaten, as well as former Gold Saints Deathmask and Aphrodite alive. Hearing about Hades and Specters, Seiya decides to fight as one of Athena's Saints, but Mu tells Seiya that he and his friends are not wanted in the battle, as Athena herself has ordered the Gold Saints to kill them if they do not leave the Sanctuary.
However, Seiya still refuses those orders and engage Deathmask after equiping his damaged Cloth. Gaining the upper hand with his Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken due to his increased Cosmo, he is suddenly interrupted when Mu attacks him from behind, reminding him of his orders.
Mu then sends Seiya away with the Starlight Extinction, ending up at the Colosseum where he received his Pegasus Cloth, reuniting with Shiryu.
House of Cancer
Seiya and Shiryu once more traverse the stairs through the Sanctuary until Shiryu feel a familiar Cosmo. Leaving Shiryu to investigate the Cosmo, Seiya appears again at the House of Cancer just in time to save Mu from a horde of Specters.
Challenging the Specter Gigante, Seiya is easily defeated when the Specter evades his Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken with little effort. Seiya berates the Specter for hiding in the shadows, and the two are about to resume their battle, but an unknown figure interrupts, sending the Specters ahead before engaging Seiya and Mu on his own.
When they see a large blob-like creature, they are shocked as the blob reveals himself as Papillon Myu. Challenging the creature, Seiya is barely pulled away as Myu attacks with his Ugly Eruption, which Mu deflects with the Crystal Wall. As the Specter unleash his Silky Thread, the two Saints are completely entangled in the threads.
Shortly after Shiryu, Shun and Hyoga arrive at the House before resuming, Mu is able to break free from the Silky Thread before helping Seiya break free as well. While they observe in order to find out where Myu has gone, they suddenly see a large cocoon similar to those they were trapped in, hang from the roof of the House. Myu reveals his plan to buy time in order to reveal his true form, before emerging with large butterfly wings.
Once more engaging the Specter, Seiya is attacked with psychokinesis. However, Seiya manages to resist the psychokinesis which truly horrifies Myu who was able to restrain Mu's movements with that technique.
Preparing himself again, Seiya is interrupted by Mu who sends him ahead with the promise to fix his Cloth, due to its terrible condition after the battle against Poseidon.
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 Seiya using his Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken 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.
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.
Refusing to give up, Seiya burns his Cosmo and is able to land a hit on the Judge for the first time with his Pegasus Sui Sei Ken, before his Cloth turns golden and he sends himself along with the Wyvern down to the underworld.
Awakening, Seiya finds himself alive in the underworld. Finding Shun and hearing about the Eight Sense, the two Bronze Saints move on to find Hades, only to find themselves challenged by the Specter Charon at the Acheron River. Charging straight at his enemy, Seiya's Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken is easily reflected by Charon's Rolling Oar, and Shun intervenes before the two combatants are able to resume their fight.
As they wait for Charon to take them to the other side of the Acheron River, they are shocked when he tells them that they are not even halfway, before suddenly being struck into the water by the Specter. Rescued by Shun's chains, Seiya once more retaliates and is able to hit Charon for the first time, sending him into the water.
When he tells them that only he knows the river and promising to take them to the other side, Shun drags him aboard once more, but the Specter tricks them yet again as he tries to kill Seiya with the oar.
Refusing to let go, Seiya is instead further wounded by Charon's strongest attack Edying Current Crusher. However, once again changing his mind to let the Bronze Saints passage after seeing a sign of trust in Shun despite being tricked twice, they finally reach the other side of the river, where Seiya and Charon once more clash, with the Pegasus killing the Specter.
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 forced by Rune's Reincarnation to see through his past battles against opponents he has wounded.
After stating it was all for justice, 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.
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, Seiya and Shun 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 Pharao 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 fights Rhadamanthys in order to keep him busy while Orphée charges at Hades, only to see that Hades looks exactly like Shun. 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.
While in Cocytus, Seiya notice Aioria, Mu and Miro as well. Shortly after, he sees Ikki being put down, before meeting the Specter Valentine. Challenging the Specter by stating he has Athena's Cloth, the Specter frees him and the two battle.
Having been in Cocytus for long, Seiya struggles to defeat the powerful Specter as he can not burn his Cosmo properly, and is easily defeated.
Refusing to stand down and accept defeat, Seiya keeps struggling against the Specter despite his weakened body and Cosmo, being once more knocked down as Valentine unleash his Greet The Live, damaging Seiya's left shoulder on his Cloth.
However, after hearing Athena's voice and feeling her Cosmo in Athena's Cloth, Seiya is able to kill the Specter at last with his Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken, and makes haste back to Giudecca after noticing Athena and Hades' Cosmo disappearing.
Wall of Grief
Regrouping with Shun, free from Hades' possesion, 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
Now with the path open, the Bronze Saints make their way towards Elysium, but 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.
Suddenly, Seiya's Cloth sprouts wings, which allows him to safely recover Shun and move on to Elysium. Realizing that their Cloths are protected by the blood of Athena, thus they are not torn apart by the dimension between the underworld and Elysium, and the two Bronze Saints continue their journey.
Arriving first in Elysium, Seiya encounters Thanatos, who starts to attack the Pegasus without mercy. However, Seiya refuses to give up now that he has managed to come this far, and retaliates against the god only to be overpowered at every single attempt. Although he surprises Thanatos with his Pegasus Sui Sei Ken, the Bronze Saint is only able to remove the robe he's wearing, which reveal the god's Surplice beneath.
Thanatos prepares to kill Seiya, but he notice a bruise on two of his fingers. Furious at having actually been hit by a mere mortal, Thanatos decides to torture Seiya, viciously beating him before attempting to kill him. As he feels Seika's presence on Earth, the god of death decides to kill her first in order to further torture Seiya. The Bronze Saint tries to retaliate with the Pegasus Rolling Crush, but Thanatos instead disappear, and Seiya only wounds himself further.
Unable to fight back any further, Seiya is saved when Shun arrives to save his friend, only to be defeated just as easily. Although Shiryu, Hyoga and Ikki also arrive and challenge Thanatos, they too are easily defeated, although Ikki is 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.
However, after hearing Athena's voice again and hearing Seika screaming his name, Seiya stands up and burns his Cosmo to the the level of a god, resurrecting his shattered Cloth into a God Cloth.
Surprised at seeing what powers his Cloth was hiding due to Athena's blood, he easily deflects Thanatos' Terrible Providence, before retaliating with a Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken which greatly damage the god of death's Surplice, before finally killing him with a Pegasus Sui Sei Ken, moving on to the Temple of Hades, destroying Hypnos' robe and headgear in the proccess.
Grave of Hades
Arriving at the grave of Hades, Seiya tries several attempts at attacking the urn which Athena is trapped in. However, every attempt is reflected, resulting in Seiya also losing his headgear. When Ikki arrives, he charges straight at the soul of Hades which levitates above the palace where his body resides.
Easily reflected, Ikki laments that he won't be able to do much without his Cloth, and is suddenly given a God Cloth after touching Athena's blood.
With the help of Ikki, Seiya decides to attack Hades directly, only for the god of the underworld himself to resurrect and attack the two Saints. Before he can kill Seiya, the timely arrival of Shiryu, Hyoga and Shun, also awoken to their God Cloths, help Seiya and Ikki, although the combined powers of all five Bronze Saints are not enough, and they are easily beaten by Hades.
However, Athena puts the Saints in orbs, sending them away as they are slowly making way back to Earth. Before Hades is able to kill Athena, Seiya burst out of his orb and launces a powerful Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken, finally wounding Hades for the first time, but at the cost of Hades' sword piercing him.
While Seiya falls unconscious due to the injury from the sword, Athena and the other Bronze Saints overpower Hades and finally kill him.

Powers and Abilities
As a Saint, Seiya has been trained to learn how to use the power of the Cosmos within his own body and use it for super strength and speed. Seiya trained for six years and defeated ten other trainees to obtain the Pegasus Cloth and the status as a one of Athena's Saints.
Speed of Sound
Being a Bronze Saint, Seiya 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, Seiya'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 Seiya begins his journey as a Bronze Saint, the lowest of the three ranks of Saints, his abilities gradually grow to rival those of the Gold Saints, the most powerful of Athena's soldiers. He achieves this by awakening his Seventh Sense, the essence and origin of the Cosmo. This has allowed him to break Aldebaran 's "Great Horn", evade Aioria' a lightspeed blows, reflect Thor's "Titanic Hercules", resist Baian'a "God Breath" and shoot Poseidon with the Sagittarius arrow.
He has also achieved the Eight Sense, allowing him to go to the underworld without being subject to it's laws. After awakening his God Cloth and surpassing the Eight Sense, Seiya has managed to break Thanatos' "Terrible Providence" and injure Hades himself.
Whenever he burns his Cosmo, Seiya is surrounded by a blue aura.
Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken (Pegasus Meteor Fist)
Seiya elevates and burns his Cosmo, tracing the Stars of the Pegasus Constellation with his hands, his fiery aura growing and flowing around him. Upon reaching the peak of his power, said aura manifests as the image of a Pegasus.
Focusing his Cosmo within his right fist, he releases a great quantity of his power in the form of many Beams of Cosmic Energy.
Originally, when Seiya was only capable of reaching speeds of Mach 1, he was capable of releasing approximately 84 meteors pr. second.
However, as his Cosmo and speed increase, so does the number of Meteors being around 100 Million to 1 Billion at Faster than Light Speeds, and likely Hundreds of Trillions in his most powerful forms.
Pegasus Sui Sei Ken (Pegasus Comet Fist)
Seiya's most powerful attack. He burns his Cosmo to the limit, heavily focusing his energy in his right fist.
Then, instead of releasing said energy in the form of his Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken, Seiya combines each of his Meteors into one massive, extremely powerful Comet of Cosmo Energy, which he fires towards his opponent.
Pegasus Rolling Crush
Rushing towards his opponent, Seiya grapples his foe from behind to immobilize them.
Then, burning his Cosmo to its limit, both Seiya and his enemy are surrounded by a massive aura, which eventually propels both Seiya and his enemy towards the skies above at insane speeds.
Finally, they descend to the Earth again at the same speed, eventually crashing into the ground, dealing great damage.

- Seiya was able to resist Myu's psychokinesis, something not even Mu was capable of, indicating how strong Seiya's willpower and Cosmo truly is.
- Why Seiya's new Cloth did not glow like a Gold Cloth during the Asgard battle is a curious question, not revealing that ability before the Poseidon saga, and he did awaken his Seventh Sense while fighting the God Warriors.
