'''Argus Steel''' (Japanese: '''アルガス·スティール''' ''Argus Steel'') is the main antagonist of ''[[M17|Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction]]''. He is a master thief known even to {{TRT}}.
He is the father of [[Millis Steel]], and the rival of [[Marilyn FlameMerilyn]] and [[Ninja Riot]]. Together with his daughter, he plans to awaken {{an|Diancie}}'s power to create diamonds before stealing the Pokémon and fortune for himself.
Argus first appeared tracking Diancie from his airship. At the time, Diancie was on a quest to find {{mov|Xerneas|Xerneas|17}} and acquire the {{a|Fairy Aura}}. Argus was also seen tracking down the actions of his rivals, [[Marilyn FlameMerilyn]] and [[Ninja Riot]]. He was satisfied with the progress but also worried that MarilynMerilyn and Riot may get to it first. When Millis arrived, Argus was shown with a box of chocolates, and talked to his daughter about how good the chocolates he had were. He was shown eating several of the chocolates, which worried Millis.
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. He, along with Millis, chased after Diancie and also fought with MarilynMerilyn and Riot when they appeared. They took their fighting into a deep pit with shallow water, which contained Yveltal. Argus was surprised when he felt a strange power awaken. They lost possession of Diancie during {{mov|Yveltal|Yveltal|17}}'s rampage, and when they used Argus's ship to attack Yveltal with missiles, were killed. Their ship was also destroyed and crashed into a lake. They were later revived by Xerneas after the crisis had ended.
After these events, Argus and his daughter gave up their criminal life and they opened their own chocolate shop. Working here, he was shown to still have an irresistible obsession with chocolates, as despite Millis trying to stop him, he ate a piece.
Argus was shown to be a very stealthy man who relied on sneaky tactics in order to accomplish his goals. This was shown in the fact that he owned an invisible airship he used to travel the world in search of treasures. He used this ship to stealthily track down his targets and steal anything he desired to obtain a fortune. Argus further showed his preferred use of stealthy tactics as he relied on his Honedge to spy on Diancie, and also tracked down the activity of MarilynMerilyn and Riot from within his airship. Argus also only attacked Diancie once she had accomplished her goal, and appeared at surprise along with Millis to capture it.
Argus was shown to have a sweet tooth, with a particular interest in chocolate. This was shown as when he was spying on Diancie and his rivals, he was holding a box of chocolate and eating a lot of it. This behavior often worries his daughter Millis, but despite her claims of concern over his health, Argus continues to eat chocolate. He also often talks about the individual chocolates he eats, such as their origins, and what they are made of. His obsession with chocolate also caused him to open and run a chocolate shop after he gave up his criminal life, which he operates along with Millis.
