Who Is Phoenix Ikki’s Master?

Ikki’s master is probably the worst of them all, because he helped to shape Ikki as an early villain in the series.

In Saint Seiya, Guilty is the master of Ikki, the Phoenix Bronze Saint. As a mentor and trainer, Guilty imparts his martial arts wisdom and combat techniques to Ikki, shaping him into a formidable warrior.  In the early stages of Saint Seiya, Guilty emerges as a malevolent force, playing a crucial role in shaping Ikki, the Phoenix Bronze Saint’s character.

As an inherently wicked mentor, Guilty instills a darker aspect in Ikki’s persona, fostering a complex relationship between master and pupil. Check 7 facts about Ikki in this article.

As the legendary Libra Gold Saint, Dohko imparts his profound wisdom and formidable martial arts expertise to Shiryu, the Bronze Saint of the Dragon constellation. Dohko’s role extends beyond mere combat training, encompassing spiritual and ethical guidance.

Who is Cygnus Hyoga’s Master?

The anime also changed some info about Hyoga’s master. They are different people depending on the anime or manga.

In the Saint Seiya anime, Hyoga’s master is portrayed as the Crystal Saint (with the power of, many say, a silver saint), while the manga attributes this role to Camus, Aquarius gold saint. In the anime, Camus is Crystal Saint’s master. That’s why Hyoga also calls him his master.

Despite this difference, both versions emphasize the mentorship’s significance in shaping Hyoga’s character as the Cygnus Bronze Saint. Click here to know 7 facts about Camus!

Here’s an interesting story: Crystal Saint was created prior to Camus, deviating from the norm (where the manga creates something and the anime adapts it), but Kurumada added this plotline to the Sanctuary Saga.

Who Is Pegasus Tenma’s Master?

Tenma’s mentor-student relationship goes beyond physical training, instilling virtues like courage and determination. 

In Saint Seiya, Dohko assumes the role of Tenma’s master, fostering the young Pegasus Saint’s growth and development. As the Libra Gold Saint, Dohko imparts his profound wisdom and combat expertise to Tenma, shaping him into a formidable warrior.

Dohko’s influence plays a pivotal role in Tenma’s journey, guiding him on the path of justice and fortitude. Check a revie of the Lost Canvas anime here.

Mu, the Aries Gold Saint in Saint Seiya, was mentored by Shion, the former Aries Gold Saint and the Great Pope. Shion, a wise and powerful figure, secretly met his demise at the hands of Saga, the Gold Saint of Gemini, who assumed the identity of the Great Pope.
