ClothEditHarbinger wears the new version of Taurus Cloth , formerly used by Aldebaran. This new version is very similar to the previous one, but with some changes, like adding purple gems adorning the armor, exchanging the muscle-sculpted design for a more plate-based appearance, and a helmet that drapes over the wearer's eyes. The Taurus Cloth still has a broken horn from the time of Seiya and Aldebaran's battle, although Harbinger only wore the helmet once, when fighting Titan.
- Shadow Horn (シャドウホーン, Shadou Hōn): Harbinger envelopes himself in darkness, and rushes towards his opponent at the speed of light. Using the shadows as cover, he assaults his target with swift and deadly strikes. This attack is mostly likely purely cosmo-based, propelling himself ot the speed of light only with cosmo, as Harbinger does not possess the element of darkness.
- Great Horn (グレートホーン, Gurēto Hōn): This is a technique that allows the user to send waves of intense cosmos to devastate what is in front of him. Harbinger crosses his arms in the signature attack posture of the Taurus Saint and concentrates his cosmos in this position. He will then release his palms facing forward at the speed of light, unleashing that power and causing a powerful, bone breaking shockwave destroys everything before that the enemy realizes what has happened. A full powered Great Horn is strong enough to shatter one of Saturn's Keepsake weapons-the tenjisouseiken, who is wielded by Great Sword Titan, albeit with Harbinger in a severely weakened state. In Omega, this technique is lightning based.
- Greatest Horn (グレイテストホーン, Gureitesuto Hōn): Harbinger creates a small field of cosmos in his hands and raises a column of lightning energy around himself. After putting his hands in an outward motion, the column expands at an explosive speed, quickly engulfing his enemies in a spectacularly painful burst of energy. This technique is so powerful that it is able to warp space, as shown when he teleports the Bronze Saint's to the other houses ahead, and even demonstrates enough power to force one of the Four Great Kings, Great Sword Titan , to use his sword's power to defeat it.
ConstellationEditTaurus is one of the constellations of the zodiac, which means it is crossed by the plane of the ecliptic. Its name is a Latin word meaning "bull", and its astrological symbol is a stylized bull's head: (Unicode ♉). Taurus is a large and prominent constellation in the northern hemisphere's winter sky. It is one of the oldest constellations, dating back to at least the Early Bronze Age when it marked the location of the Sun during the spring equinox. Taurus came to symbolize the bull in the mythologies of Ancient Babylon, Egypt and Greece."
