Argus Steel (Japanese: アルガス·スティール Argus Steel) is the main antagonist of Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction. He is a master thief known even to Team Rocket.
He is the father of Millis Steel, and the rival of Marilyn Flame and Ninja Riot. Together with his daughter, he plans to awaken Diancie's power to create diamonds before stealing the Pokémon and fortune for himself.
Argus appeared tracking Diancie's quest to find Xerneas and acquire the Fairy Aura from his airship. He and his daughter attacked Diancie once it had accomplished its goal, hoping to use its newfound power of diamond creation to acquire a fortune. They lost possession of Diancie during Yveltal's rampage, and when they used Argus's ship to attack Yveltal with missiles, were killed. They were later revived by Xerneas after the crisis had ended.
In the credits of the movie, Argus opens his own chocolate shop that he operates with Millis.
Argus owns an airship he uses to travel the world in search of treasures. He is also fond of eating chocolate, a habit his daughter teases him for.
