Troll Ivan (天敗星トロルのイワン, Tenpaisei Tororu no Iwan, Тролль Иван) is one of Hades' 108 Spectres. Ivan's power lies in the Divine Defeating Star (天敗星)
Ivan was renowned for possessing great strength that he used in hand-to hand combat, but his size and resistance didn't help either. When Cygnus Hyoga and Dragon Shiryu were fighting their way through the Prisons of the Underworld they came face-to-face with Ivan at the Third Prison. Understimating the Saints of Athena, Ivan posed confidently and said : "I won't let you pass through the third prison, for I am...". In that exact moment, Hyouga made him silent by freezing him with his Diamond Dust at absolute zero.
Taking the full force of the Diamond Dust, all Ivan could do was try to finish his phrase : "For I am...Ivan of the Divine Defeating Star..." , which became his final words, and then he collapsed dead.
In the anime adaptation, Ivan's intervention is exactly identical to the events in the manga.
The lost Canvas Edit
Surplice, Name and StarEdit
- Troll Surplice
The Troll Surplice represents a Troll, a mythical creature from Norse folklore. In Norse myths, the word troll was a synonym for a "jotun", or giant, the traditional archenemy of the Nordic gods. Ivan's Star is TenPaiSei (天敗星), the Divine Defeating Star.
- Though Masami Kurumada gave him one technique, Greatest Perestroika, he didn't draw Ivan performing it in his manga.
- Ivan is one of the Specters that was defeated more quickly and easily.
- Ivan is sometimes seen as a comic relief as before he could say his name he was defeated by Hyouga and plus the fact that his star was the Divine Star of Defeat.
- It is unclear if Kurumada was trying to be "ironic" about Ivan, since the star name Defeating can also mean Defeated or loose (敗), shows how fast Ivan was defeated rather him defeating his enemies.
"I won't let you pass through the third prison, for I am...For I am...Ivan of the Divine Defeating Star..."
