* ActionGirl: Have the most number of these, among all the spin-offs, and most of them are as competent as men are. Among the Bronzes there are Aquila Yuna, who is the most badass Bronze ([[BadassDecay at least in season 1]]) , Shaina is still around, among the Gold Saints (yes, you heard that right, there are female Gold Saint in this spin-off) there are Gemini Paradox [[spoiler: and her twin sister Gemini Integra. [[BackUpTwin They are Gemini]], what do you expect? ]] and Scorpio [[spoiler: Sonia, previously Hornet Sonia]], then each season's EliteFour at least have one female member (The Martians have Diana and the Pallasites have Gallia) , and in season 2, Saori does engage in actual combat with Pallas. A satisfying spin-off for people who have been eager to see women as competent fighters in Saint Seiya franchise (the other work in the franchise to do this is ''Manga/SaintSeiyaSaintiaSho'')

* PassingTheTorch: One of the main premises of the series. The previous generation of Bronze Saints, led by none other than Seiya himself, pass on their duty as protectors of Athena to a new generation.
** Seiya, as the former bearer of the Pegasus Cloth, passes the torch on to Kouga.
** Ditto for Shiryu and his son Ryuuho.

** Kouga is the only saint able to stand up to [[spoiler: a certain Gold Saint named Mycenae who's gone through a FaceHeelTurn]], Kouga musters up his Light element, he's the only one left standing, and it doesn't look like he's going to go down...! Only for Mars to show up, [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy say that he's too dangerous]], and soundly beat him to a pulp.

The newest entry in the ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' franchise, which aired from April 1st, 2012 to March 30th, 2014. It follows a new generation of Saints, and the main character is Pegasus Kouga, who seems to be very much like [[{{Determinator}} Sei]][[IdiotHero ya]] in terms of personality. Seiya himself also appears as a Gold Saint. Saori Kido is still present, as the goddess Athena; she also raised Kouga as a parent. She is kidnapped by the god Mars, leaving Kouga and his fellow Saints to save her. Other Saints include: Aquila Yuna, Lionet Souma, Dragon Ryuhou, Orion Eden and Wolf Haruto.

* BestHerToBedHer: A variant with the permanently-masked female Saints. Traditionally, if they show their faces to someone they must (a) fall in love with them, or (b) kill them. Now consider the amount of ClothingDamage in a fight between Cloth-wearers and... well, you can see where we're going with this. Yuna deconstructs and eventually defies this - she's ''not happy'' about the tradition, and tends to fight at a handicap to prevent her mask from getting broken. Eventually (with a bit of encouragement from Kouga) she decides that it just isn't worth the effort, lets her mask get wrecked to win a fight, and gives tradition a big middle finger from then onwards. There's a reason she's bare-faced in the picture above.
** It was played straight in the original series with [[spoiler:Shaina]] (at least to the extent that she does fall in love with [[spoiler:Seiya]] when he destroys her mask, but it seems to be subverted (or just averted) in all occasions in Omega. As explained above, Yuna just refuses the tradition. [[spoiler:Gemini Paradox]] doesn't use the mask at all and says she'll just love [[spoiler:or kill, when in "evil" mode]] anyone who sees her. And [[spoiler:Gemini Integra]] gets her mask destroyed by [[spoiler:Paradox]] but of course the trope is just averted because of the [[spoiler:UnfortunateImplications HoYay [[BrotherSisterIncest Sister-Sister]] in the love case, and because they were already trying to kill each other before this happens. They end up loving each other as sisters in the end but for totally different reasons.]]

* BreakingSpeech: Along with a side-order of LotusEaterMachine, this is the standard defence mechanism for the Darkness Ruins. In a darkly amusing subversion, though, it's so horrified/disgusted/outraged by Aria's [[ElementalRockPaperScissors powerful Light cosmo]] that it doesn't bother with either, and just skips straight to insulting her.



* DamselInDistress: Saori[=/=]Athena, as per tradition. And [[spoiler: Aria, her impersonator]].

* DesignatedGirlFight: Averted. There are fights between heroines and villainesses, but the battles are too often mixed-gender to really call them 'designated'. In particular, [[ActionGirl Yuna]] has more than a fair share of victories against male villains under her belt, whilst Souma's [[YouKilledMyFather personal grudge]] against [[DarkActionGirl Sonia]] makes ''him'' her most frequent opponent.
** The Gold Saint arc actually has the biggest subversion so far: [[spoiler:Ryuho and Souma fight, respectively, the females Gemini and Scorpio, while Yuna fights the male Cancer.]]

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The Silver Saint Musca Fly, a creepy old man who's ''way'' too into stealing children's Cloths. The fact that there are perfectly non-sexual (if definitely not moral) reasons for doing so, since Mars has put out a bounty on the things, in no way prevents him from coming across as a walking AMBER Alert.

* FamedInStory: The five man band from the original series are this, being called the legendary saints. It seems that at some point they had all become Gold Saints between the original series and Omega.
** So far, from the original band, only Sagittarius Seiya [[spoiler:and Libra Shiryu]] are gold saints. The others remain in the bronze class. ''[[BadassCrew Not that doesn't stop or slow them the slightest anyways...]]''

* FiveManBand: Interesting in that, while the main nakama is a Five-Man Band, they don't neatly fall into the classic positions, instead sharing many of the positions within them.
** Kouga: TheHero, TheLeader
** Souma: TheLancer, TheBigGuy (having the biggest raw power of the five main Bronze Saints).
** Yuna: TheLancer (being as prominent a Lancer as Souma), {{The Smart G|uy}}al, surprisingly ''not'' TheChick (or at least not as much as Ryuhou)
** Ryuhou: TheChick / TheHeart, TheLancer (to Haruto)
** Haruto: TheSmartGuy
** [[spoiler: Eden: SixthRanger, TheBigGuy (even MORE raw power than Souma, he's the most powerful member of the team period)]]
** [[spoiler: Subaru: [[SixthRanger Seventh Ranger]]]]



* GreaterScopeVillain: [[spoiler: Possibly twice, if you count Medea being revealed as TheManBehindTheMan, manipulating Mars so that he'll create a world in which she and Eden will rule.]] The second time in that case would be [[spoiler: Abzu, the god of darkness, who proves to be too much to be controlled by Aria's staff as Medea had planned. Abzu simply breaks the staff rather than be expelled form his host, Koga, as Eden had hoped. Medea winds up getting killed in order to ensure that he doesn't kill Eden, the one person she cared about]].
** The second season has [[spoiler:the person behind the Pallasites (or at the very least, the Class-1s, Europa and Miller), who is heavily hinted to be Saturn in the form of Steel Saint turned Bronze Saint Subaru]].



* HandWave: In episode 68, the gang comes across some civilians who were not turned to stone by Pallas's curse because they have naturally strong cosmos. This potential plot point goes virtually nowhere. It simply serves as an explanation as to why Koga is not suspicious when he comes across Pallas running through the streets of the city.
** About the most plot relevant event it leads to is the introduction of the Equuleus Saint. Celeris, a citizen of Pallasvelda with a strong Cosmo, impressed the dying Equuleus Saint who gave him his cloth. Celeris then gave the cloth to Subaru, making him a real Bronze Saint, after having been impressed by the boy's bravery.

* [[InfinityPlusOneElement Infinity+1 Elements]]: Light and Dark, though they have more of an emphasis on the 'Plus One' than the 'Infinity'. The reason being that despite their advantages the above mentioned "whoever's cosmo burns brightest wins" still applies. However to date (ep 8) both elements are incredibly rare among saints, and of the known Light element users two are deific [[spoiler:the real and 'fake' Athena]], one is [[spoiler: a reincarntion of one of the five Wisdom Kings and a Gold Saint]], Seiya, and the other is the massively gifted Kouga. There does however seem to be a bus load of low level dark element users among the Martian {{Mook}}s. The advantages of these elements are that they seem to be NonElemental in regards to the standard 5 (but directly counter each other). Dark also seems able to cause a [[FieldPowerEffect Field Power Drain]] to non-dark users.

* RedShirtArmy: Along with its heavier use of {{Mooks}}, the second season reintroduces this in the form of the Steel Saints, young soldiers equipped with technological pseudo-Cloths who serve to bulk out the numbers of Athena's forces due to the massive casualties the war against Mars inflicted. As one Steel Saint irritably noted, they're at a disadvantage against even their opposite numbers, the similarly feeble Class-4 Pallasites.
** With the introduction of retired Saints donning Steel Cloths, this becomes better due to them being able to defeat Class-4 Pallasites with far greater ease.

*** Note, however, that other Cerberus Saints have been present at [[SaintSeiya other installments]] [[SaintSeiyaTheLostCanvas of the franchise]]. So, we may assume that at least some of the former constellations are among Athena's lines since day one. WordOfGod has also already stated that 88 is only a hypothetical number, meaning there might be many more Clothes out there from which we never heard of (the Clothes' Cemetery in Jamir did have an awful lot of abandoned Clothes, after all).
