* HumanHeadOnTheWall: In one of the creepiest scenes from the "Sanctuary" arc, Seiya and Shiryu find out that the walls of the Cancer Temple are ''full'' of human faces. There's one face per each person that Cancer Deathmask, the BloodKnight among the Gold Saints, has killed - [[AndIMustScream and their souls are bound to them]]. Understandably, [[OhCrap neither of the boys react well to the discovery]] or to [[ButForMeItWasTuesday Deathmask's flippant reaction to their horror]]. [[spoiler: When Shiryu kills Deathmask, he and Seiya soon see that the "heads/faces" are gone, [[UndeathAlwaysEnds meaning that the souls of these people are finally free]].]]

Wishing to repeat their success with ''Anime/SailorMoon'', the series was licensed and dubbed in English as ''Knights Of The Zodiac'' (which is actually the name the series has in most of the world outside Japan) by Creator/DICEntertainment and shown on Creator/CartoonNetwork, but the plot and characters [[{{Macekre}} didn't receive very good treatment]]. It wasn't very popular, and only 32 of the 40 dubbed episodes aired. Creator/ADVFilms would later re-release the series on DVD with a new, much more faithful dub (note the page image), but they only had the license up to episode 60 due to it being the last episode that DiC had sub-licensed to them. It wasn't until 2014 when New Video Group released the complete Sanctuary arc in its subbed form. Episodes can now be seen on Hulu and Crunchyroll. There has been no announcements on whether or not the [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes Poseidon or Hades arcs will receive a release]].

** One of [[spoiler: Dragon Shiryu]]'s most famous actions is him [[spoiler: plucking his own eyes out to defeat an enemy who has a shield that [[TakenForGranite turns the target into stone with a single glance]], [[MortonsFork after neither closed eyes nor blindfolds work as counter-measures]]. In the TV series he gets better, though in the {{filler}} Asgard saga he temporarily loses his sight again after getting his eyes slashed in his fight with Fenrir; in the manga and the ''Hades Saga'' series he doesn't, and stays blind for the rest of his life.

Staple manga and later anime during TheEighties by Creator/MasamiKurumada, and [[GenreLaunch launcher]] of the "pretty boys in armor" subgenre of shonen fighting manga/anime (shows that followed it include ''Anime/RoninWarriors'', ''Manga/LegendOfHeavenlySphereShurato'', and even ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' if you replace "armor" with "mecha". ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'' is a DistaffCounterpart). It tells the story of [[FiveManBand five friends]] who serve the reincarnation of the goddess Athena, Saori Kido, in her quest to reclaim her place as ruler of the Saints, a group of warriors themed after the WesternZodiac and pretty much every charted constellation.

Each saint gets a suit of armor that can transform from a sculpture of their signature constellation into functional battle armor. There are three grades of armor, Bronze, Silver, and Gold, with each grade being [[ElementalCrafting far more powerful and resilient]] than the last. Each armor is also an EmpathicWeapon and has some amount of choice in who wears it and whether they deserve to use it, as well as at least one special property.

* '''Seiya''': The Pegasus Saint [[BeamSpam (Light]], [[RapidFireFisticuffs Energy)]] - who often succeeds thanks to ThePowerOfFriendship. Brash and loyal to a fault, though all his friends never give up, he's so HotBlooded that he often is the most capable of pulling off HeroicResolve. Often veers into TooDumbToLive territory, and is almost as hard as Ikki to kill.
* '''Shiryu''': The Dragon Saint [[MakingASplash (Water)]] - TheRival to Seiya at first. Despite his tendency to become blind in battles[[note]]Only to later [[ThrowingOffTheDisability get better]][[/note]], he is one of the stronger fighters, not to mention [[GeniusBruiser the smartest one]] along with Ikki. Usually [[HighPressureBlood bleeds at least]] a [[OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank quart of blood]] per fight.
* '''Hyoga''': The Cygnus Saint [[AnIcePerson (Ice)]] - despite being a more-or-less devout Christian wholeheartedly helped Athena... yeah, good thing the setting was into CrossoverCosmology. Also notorious for his Oedipus complex.
* '''Shun''': The Andromeda Saint [[VariableLengthChain (Chains]], [[BlowYouAway Wind]] and [[PureEnergy Energy)]] had perhaps the most destructive power of the core five, [[ReluctantWarrior and the most restraint on using it]]. He doesn't snap very often, but when it ''does'' happen, ''[[BewareTheNiceOnes SNAP]]'' he does.
* '''Ikki''': The [[ThePhoenix Phoenix]] Saint [[PlayingWithFire (Fire]], Rebirth, {{Hell}}) - The Loner in the LonersAreFreaks sense. Shun's over-protective older brother and BigBad in the first arc. Most likely to use CoolAndUnusualPunishment and FateWorseThanDeath with his [[MindRape psychic attacks]]. Also, possibly [[{{Immortality}} immortal]]/unkillable; kill him and he'll keep on coming [[StayingAlive back...]] and [[DeathIsCheap back... and back...]]..to make matters even better, [[CameBackStrong he comes back STRONGER]].
