Cygnus! Warrior of the Ice Field (Kigunasu! Hyogen no senshi) is the third episode of the Saint Seiya anime. It was released on October 25, 1986 on TV Asahi.


Saori calls upon the Cygnus Saint, Hyoga, to attend the Galaxian wars tournament. He bids his mother and homeland of Siberia farewell. Phoenix proceeds to be unreachable to summons.


Seiya stays with Miho and the children she looks after. Meanwhile, Hyoga delves into icy water to visit his seemingly slumbering mother, who resides in a sunken ship. He feels compelled by the Saint blood in his veins to attend the Galaxian wars. Before leaving, he melts the eternal wall of ice to obtain the Cygnus cloth.

Saori presents at the tournament as the main sponsor, explaining what a saint is and the significance of their cloth. Each cloth is the protector constellation of the Saint. The Gold cloth is only granted to saints that have proven to be worthy, as it belongs to the most powerful constellations, the Zodiacs. The sagittarius cloth is the prize of the Galaxian War.

Cygnus faces Hydra. Cygnus displays his ability to cause temperature to rapidly decrease at focused points, making poison and most attacks aimed to pierce or slash him futile.

Shiryu, the Dragon Saint, Seiya and Hyoga may be put against one another. Tension ensues.
