The Black Saints (also known as Ankoku Saints in the anime adaptation) appear as servants of the Bronze Saint Phoenix Ikki, on his quest to kill all the Bronze Saints. All of them trained in Death Queen Island along with several sons from Mitsumasa Kido, but most of them died. Although there is a Black Saint counterpart for each one of the 88 constellations, Kurumada featured prominently only four in his manga, the dark equivalents of the protagonists:
Black Pegasus (暗黒ペガサス Burakku Pegasasu?), Black Andromeda (暗黒アンドロメダ Burakku Andoromeda?), Black Dragon (暗黒ドラゴン Burakku Doragon?) and Black Swan (暗黒スワン Burakku Suwan?).
They were regarded as the most powerful among the Black Saints and were collectively known as The Black Four (暗黒四天王 Burakku Fō?). Their Cloths and techniques are counterparts to the ones from Pegasus Seiya, Dragon Shiryū, Andromeda Shun and Cygnus Hyōga. Although, there is only one counterpart of each Cloth, in the manga the Black Dragon Saint has a blind brother that helps him to fight. Additionally, there are also several Black Phoenix Saints, who refer to themselves as Ikki's shadows, although in the anime one of them appears as the strongest one.
