Saint Seiya : Saint Cloth Dragon Shiryu Plain Clothes FigureThis is Saint Seiya : Saint Cloth Dragon Shiryu Plain Clothes Figure . This is 16 cm Dragon Shiryu comes with his Cloth Box to carry on his back, the Dragon Object to ride neatly in the Cloth Box, and six extra hands to help get the job done.

Dragon Shiryū (龍星座の紫龍, Doragon no Shiryū, shiryū meaning “violet dragon”), also known as Shiryū. Out of all five main characters, Shiryū is known as the calmest and most collected. His sheer physical strength is the greatest of the Bronze Saints, with the possible exception of Phoenix Ikki. This is reflected in his ability to win numerous battles without the Cosmo-augmenting capabilities of the Dragon Cloth. Shiryū trained at the Lushan’s Five Old Peaks (廬山五老峰, Rozan Gorōhō) in China to obtain the Bronze Cloth of the Dragon constellation, and his mentor was none other than the senior Gold Saint, Libra Dohko.

Shiryū sports a large tattoo-like image of a green and white dragon on his back. However, it is stated in the manga and the anime that it is not a tattoo, but it is connected to his guardian Dragon constellation and only appears as his Cosmo is rising. Whenever his life is in danger, the Dragon image begins to fade away—once it completely vanishes, it is a sign that Shiryū’s Cosmo is nearing zero, thus being himself near death.

Saint Seiya : Saint Cloth Dragon Shiryu Plain Clothes FigurePower and abilities
During his training in Rozan (as Lushan is known in japanese), Shiryū awoke his Cosmo and learned various arts of combat, as well as fundamental wisdom for life, from Libra Dohko. During the Sanctuary Arc, Shiryū awakens the 7th sense in his fight against Cancer Deathmask. He awoke the 8th sense during the Hades Arc.

His signature technique is Lushan’s Rising Dragon Force (廬山昇龍覇, Rozan Shōryūha). It consists in a fearsome blow of tremendous strength that usually knocks the opponent soaring into the air as an image of a dragon devours him. The power of the Rozan Rising Dragon Force can vary from capable to explosively powerful, depending on Shiryū’s Cosmo level at the time of execution. Unlike the favored techniques of the other Bronze Saints, however, Shiryū’s Rozan Rising Dragon Force does have one weakness — while performing the move, his heart will be left open for a millisecond. Only three people in the series have noted this: his master Libra Dohko, Bronze Saint Pegasus Seiya, and Gold Saint Capricorn Shura.

Other attacks in his arsenal include Lushan’s Dragon Flight (廬山龍飛翔, Rozan Ryūhishō), a straight-to-the-point, jumping attack with which Shiryū charges through his opponents with a single fist and that he has used a few times: against the Saint corpses at Jamir, against Chrysaor Krishna, and also against Basilisk Sylphid. Dragon’s Kick (ドラゴンの蹴り, Doragon no Keri), during which Shiryū leaps high into the air and dives toward his opponent with a sharp kick to the head. Also, although he has only used it once to date, among his defensive techniques, Shiryū counts the fabled Catch of a real sword’s blade (真剣白刃取り, Shinken Shiraha Dori); the traditional technique used in Japanese Kenjutsu to repel an opponent’s sword when unarmed. Shiryū used it to effectively stop Capricorn Shura’s attacks, as the Gold Saint’s fists and legs were similar to a razor-sharp blade.

Saint Seiya : Saint Cloth Dragon Shiryu Plain Clothes FigureDuring the Hades Arc, Shiryū learns the Lushan’s One Hundred Dragons Force (廬山百龍覇, Rozan Hyakuryūha). Shiryū learned it from sensing his master’s battle against Aries Shion, even though he was blind at that moment. A technique that surpasses by far the destructive potential of the Rozan Rising Dragon Force or the Rozan Dragon Flight, during it, Shiryū’s Cosmo erupts at its maximum, and he plows through the enemy with both his arms and palms extended emitting a virtually unstoppable burst of Cosmo of devastating effect. One hundred dragons made out of pure Cosmo march in the sky as the enemies are completely obliterated.

The final move that Shiryū uses as a last resort is the forbidden technique, Lushan’s Enraged Dragon Force (廬山亢龍覇, Rozan Kōryūha). It is a kamikaze technique similar to Seiya’s “Pegasus Rolling Crush,” except while Seiya normally intends to send both himself and his opponent back to the ground, Shiryū will continue to soar into the air and eventually into space—killing both himself and his enemy. Dohko had strongly discouraged Shiryū from using it, even going as far as putting a ban on its use.

After defeating Capricorn Shura, Shiryū is entrusted with the Gold Saint’s legendary technique Excalibur (聖剣, Ekusukarib). It is not a physical sword, but a deadly Cosmo attack focused with precision on Shiryū’s right arm. Although Shiryū’s version of the sword was not as defined as Shura’s (Shiryū’s Excalibur lies only in his right arm, while Shura’s can be unleashed from any of his limbs), the Dragon later refined it enough to rival Shura’s and used it to cut the unbreakable golden spear of Chrysaor Krishna, the powerful Mariner General, along with his Scales armor, during the Poseidon Arc.
