Before the Bronze Saints can celebrate their previous victory over the Sanctuary's warriors, they are attacked by not one but two Silver Saints. The strength of these new foes is sufficient enough to brush aside both Shun and Hyoga. With Seiya unable to defend himself Saori stands alone against the attackers until Ikki makes a triumphant return. He makes short work of one and hurts the other enough for Shun to land a finishing blow. Ikki leaves the group once more to act on his own.
