(廬山 真武拳; Rozan's True Tortoise fist) Exclusive technique of Libra Genbu. Cosmos gathers over Genbu's fist and an impact causes a great force capable of creating craters.

Shamshir Zomorrod (Shamshir-e Zomorrodnegār)
(شمشیر زمردنگار; シャムシール・エ・ゾモロドネガル; shamushīru・e・zomorodonegaru) Original technique of Safur from Seiya Ω: Dawn of End. Based on the mythical emerald scimitar of King Solomon, it's strongest when swung diagonally. Its green color reflects opposing the enemy ("reform" in these days of Middle Eastern culture). Like Excalibur, it's unleashed from the arm. Having powerful offensive power, the sword can sense the good or evil aura of those it reflects through its blade and can unleash a bright light.

Associated with attack and defense; Genbu's fist creates the sound of a drum beat and can create rhythm waves for different effects.

Winnowing Epsilon (Winnow ε)
Original technique used by Vasilya in the fanfiction Penitent Feathers. Val takes a posture as if firing a bow and attacks with an energy sphere. Moving along with a powerful breeze, the sphere splits into a large hail of light arrows.

Name N/A
(??) Description not official -- combination of Garuda Flap and Galactica Illusion, the technique sends the target through the air. There seems to be a jump in dimensions; while in a vacuum, the target is surrounded by Pluto and its five moons: Kereberos, Nyx, Charon, and Hydra. The planets crash into the target. The target is physically and mentally effected, causing the space vacuum to collect onto the body.


Phoebe Sword[2]
(フェーベソード. Espada Phoebe) An original technique used in Calm before the Sword, based on Saturn's Phoebe Ring (Aka: Ghost ring), known to be thin visibly but has a radius wider than Saturn itself. Phoebe is also a moon of Saturn. Pallasite Titan.
Janus Gate[3]
(ヤヌスゲート. Puerta/Portao de Janus) An original technique for the fanfic. Based on the god, who has two sides that represent the beginning and end of an event. Janus is also one of the moons of Saturn, which orbits above one of Saturn's rings created by meteorite particles. Thus, Titan's technique is near invisible and it captures an opponent in a hail of cosmic blades that shreds front and back.

Four Terrae

The four mighty warriors under goddess Demeter in Seiya Ω: Dawn of End. They are original techniques.

Alecto Fire
(アレークトーファイヤー) Signature attack by Swithen Megaera shooting a flame Cosmos from her hands. Named after one of the personifications of the fury goddesses, Erinys; Alecto being the Woman of Relentlessness while Megaera being the Woman of Jealousy. It can be used in various ways such as a pinpoint version or an explosive version. The former can be a long beam like projectile or a rounded one, which can gradually sear a target's flesh. It has powerful offensive capacity.
Bobbin Edge
(ボビンエッジ) Used by Loom Pan; named after a bobbin lace. Pan manipulates very thin textiles that are like very thin strings, which can adopt a blade or spear-like constitution.
Chiron's Pride
(ケイローン プライド) Possible attack by Arion. A bright wave of arrows that are so swift and forceful that it feels like being hit and ran over horses, knocking them back a far distance. The victims of the attack may lose movement in their limbs as if their bones are broken.
Chthon Impulse
(クトニオス インパルス) An ability used by Arion, named after the below-earth pantheon. Arion launches a "core" inside a target's body and it manipulates their system, such as biomolecules, preventing them from functioning properly. Thus, it creates the risk for using their body, causing a collapse, by quickening cell reproduction or other means. In the cases of Saints, the Impulse core imploded within the body when Cosmos are burned.
Cosmic Collision
(コズミックコリジョン) Boron Ginga's signature attack. Ginga gathers multiple energy particles (or photons) into spheres and fires them at his opponents at great speed. Similar to Synthesis, the photons can grow in size while launched. They can also be manipulated in various directions and catch opponents, rather that vaporizing.
Cosmic Chuukanken (Cosmic Meso Fist)
(中間拳) The name is a play on Chuukanken, meaning the mesosphere (中間圏). With a punch, Ginga launches target high into earth's mesospheric and ionospheic layers, where the temperature has considerably decreased. Injured by the sudden cold, the cosmic atoms and the parts of ionosphere, target drops back to the earth.
Cosmic Synthesis
(コズミックシンセシス) Both used for attack and defense. Boron Ginga's photons combine to form a large sphere, which can either be hurled as a solid, or the gathered energy can be unleashed in an explosion. Furthermore, he can also compress it into a "white dwarf" state where there are difficult to see or sense until Ginga brings them back to be used. In this state, they cannot be moved.
Grove of the Dead
(グローヴ ・オブ・ザ・デッド) Technique of Megaera. Sacrificing the ability to attack, a defense mechanism is placed in the Swithen Stole and whoever touches it receives a psychic attack, trapping them into an illusion of a slow massacre from forests then wars to attack the body and spirit. The victims' senses are gradually affected with "Decay". When Saints ate affected, they can lose control over their Cloths and its durability.
Wefting Fibre
(ウェフトング ファイバ) Signature move used by Loom Pan; named after weft or warp and woof. Using the masterful manipulation of her textile string like weapons, and multiplying them, Pan can form any shape. In most cases, they form barriers, ribbons, columns, weapons, webs.

  • Sekishiki (積尸気) is named for one of the M44 star cluster "Praesepe" inside of the Cancer Constellation. In Chinese Astrology, it is said to be connected to ghosts, interpreted as a demon riding a carriage. Thus, it is called cumulative corpse. Furthermore, it's within the 23rd mansion called "demon" (鬼), connected to one of the four spirit animals.
