This work concerns Ekeland variational principles for scalar and vector cyclically antimonotone bifunctions on complete metric spaces. The scalar results work for extended bifunctions and they are obtained by a generalized version of the Dancs–Hegedüs–Medvegyev's fixed point theorem. As a result, weaker lower-semicontinuity assumptions have been considered, that generalize the concept of strictly decreasingly lower-semicontinuous real-valued function. The vector results are derived from the previous ones by a scalarization approach and are based on new notions of cyclical antimonotonicity, lower boundedness and strictly decreasingly lower-semicontinuity for vector bifunctions. Several results in the literature are improved since they are stated by weaker assumptions.
