Once there Aries Kiki proclaims himself to be the world's only cloth repairer and the master of young Raki. Even so Kouga attacks him still reeling over the loss of Aria. Kiki however easily dodges the attack and lands a blow to the young saint, he explains to the group that he is not loyal to Mars and that he's there to help them on their journey.
As the young bronze saints question his motives he goes on to tell them about the overwhelming force the other 11 Gold Saints will be due to their mastery over the powerful Seventh Sense, and that the only way to defeat them would be for the young bronzes to raise their own cosmo behind that of their opponent even for a moment so that they can achieve victory. Soon after he begins to repair Kouga's damaged cloth returning it to it's former glory while also making some aesthetic changes and increasing its durability so it would not be shattered against a gold saints attack. Once Kouga's cloth is prepared Kiki goes on to tell the group of Mars' plan to drain the Earth of it's power by drawing the planet Mars into closer to it. He says that the process will take twelve hours and that once all twelve flames from the ring above their heads extinguish the planet will die.As soon as he hears this Koga runs off to the next temple to face the next Gold Saint and avenge Aria and the others try to follow,however they are stopped by Kiki who tells them they aren't going anywhere in their current condition.

KIki soon finishes the repairs to the other cloths just as Mars' forces reach the front of the Aries Temple.

He asks why Kiki rejected Mars' offer for him, and he replies that he mostly didn't like the way he treated the new Athena.

- Repair Armor : Although Saint armor can regenerate itself over time, if the damage is too great, it may need some hands-on help. Kiki is an expert at healing armor. "Fixing" isn't the right word, since the armor is alive and requires large amounts of Cosmo-charged blood to be restored back to health. A combination of the Gammanium, Orichalcum, and Star Dust Sand - the very elements present in the forging of the cloth - is used in the healing process.
- Teleportation : Kiki is also an avid teleporter, and does not hesitate to use this ability to evade attacks.
- Psychokinesis : Kiki is a renowned master of Psychokinesis, and frequently moves objects with his mind, be it people or huge stone towers. He is also able to pull people out of other dimensions.
- Starlight Extinction (スターライトエクスティンクション, Sutāraito Ekusutinkushion): The same technique of his master Mu, Kiki releases his Cosmos and surrounds the target with starlight before sending a large destructive shock wave.
- Crystal Wall (クリスタルウォール, Kurisutaru Wōru): Kiki creates a transparent, glass-like barrier with his pyschokinesis, between himself and an object. The wall is very durable, and is nearly unbreakable to all but the strongest of attacks. He inherited this technique from his master, Aries Mu.
- Stardust Revolution (スターダストレボリューション, Sutādasuto Reboryūshon) : Inherited from his master, Mu, Kiki weaves the signs of the Aries constellation and raises his hand, gathering cosmo and then unleashing a barrage of comet-like energy. It is well known that the attack has the force of shooting stars, with enough strength to obliterate an enemy with raw cosmo.
Aries is one of the constellations of the zodiac, the groups of stars through which the apparent course of the sun passes during the year. It is located in the Northern Hemisphere between Pisces to the west and Taurus to the east. The name Aries is Latin for ram, and its symbol is (Unicode ♈), representing a ram's horns. It is one of the 48 constellations described by the 2nd century astronomer Ptolemy, and remains one of the 88 modern constellations. It is a mid-sized constellation, ranking 39th overall size, with an area of 441 square degrees (1.1% of the celestial sphere). Although Aries came to represent specifically the ram whose fleece became the Golden Fleece of Ancient Greek mythology, it has represented a ram since late Babylonian times. Before that, the stars of Aries formed a farmhand. Different cultures have incorporated the stars of Aries into different constellations including twin inspectors in China and a porpoise in the Marshall Islands. Aries is a relatively dim constellation, possessing only four bright stars: Hamal (Alpha Arietis, second magnitude), Sheratan (Beta Arietis, third magnitude), Mesartim (Gamma Arietis, fourth magnitude), and 41 Arietis (also fourth magnitude). The few deep-sky objects within the constellation are quite faint and include several pairs of interacting galaxies. Several meteor showers appear to radiate from Aries, including the Daytime Arietids and the Epsilon Arietids.
