Silver Cloth




Algethi, 18th Century Hercules Saint


Damaged in Sanctuary




Sanctuary Chapter, The Lost Canvas

The Hercules Silver Cloth is the cloth of the Saint Algethi in Saint Seiya and an unknown Saint in Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas. It is of the second class of the cloths that Athena's Saints wield, the Silver Cloths.


Cloth History

I don't know what's more traumatising...the way he looks in his cloth...or the smell of those rank pits...bleh.

And You Thought Your Step Mom Was Bad

The Hercules constellation represents the legendary Greek Hero and demi-god son of Zeus. Probably attributed to him for his completion of the Twelve Labors, and his eventual ascension into godhood.

All Talk, No Game

Algethi trained to be a Saint in Uganda, by an unknown master. The cloth was likely kept in Sanctuary until a Saint worthy of wearing it was found. He follows the orders of the Pope, and is among the three Silver Saints to follow Leo Aiolia, in case he should betray Sanctuary. Algethi and the other two Silver Saints attempt to kill Seiya, but he kills all three of them with the Sagittarius Gold Cloth. Algethi fares the best of the three, getting his special attack and an extra uppercut to Seiya, before Seiya kills all three of them.

Previous War

The Hercules Saint was killed early on while trying to keep Griffon Minos out of Sanctuary, in The Lost Canvas. The previous wearer of the Cloth comes back when Hakurei calls for those who fought with him in the previous Holy War.

Big S.O.B.

"No problem in life can't be solved by throwing it high into the air...except for child endangerment."

This is the form the Hercules Silver Cloth takes during the original Saint Seiya series. Algethi earned the cloth in Uganda, and it was first seen when Algethi attacked Seiya in volume 7. Like most Silver Cloth's original forms, it covers a decent amount of the body, between Bronze Cloths and Gold Cloths. The cloth itself shows no real unique traits outside of those given to other Silver Cloths. The Cloth was last seen as Seiya defeated Algethi.


Special Abilities of Silver Cloth of Hercules

The Hercules Silver Cloth, while having all of the strength and endurance of a Silver Cloth, has no special traits that make it stand out as a cloth.

Techniques used by Hercules Saints

Algethi uses one major technique during his various fights.

"Korne Horse"

"Korne Horse", from the Greek Kornephoros (meaning Club Wielder), is an offensive technique used by Algethi on Seiya. Algethi grabs the foe and throws them very high in the air. The technique either intends for the foe's fall to kill them, or for the user to attack as they come down, but it is not shown which is the intent in the manga.
