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]].

* {{Foreshadowing}}: When Ikki defeats Shaka, the Virgo Cloth reflects Shun's image, hinting that he is Virgo's successor. [[spoiler:It becomes true in the Elysium OVA, though the Cloth is destroyed almost immediately after he puts it on.]]

** As there are far more males than females in Saint Seiya, the males tend to get more impressive hair. Out of admittedly few women, only Athena and Pandora have this hair, with the other girls having shorter (and more practical) styles - however, Shion, Mu, Saga, Kanon, Shiryu, Aldebaran, Aphrodite, Shaka, Camus and Hades himself all possess rather extreme hairstyling on the part of Kurumada. Considering this is a shonen anime, one wonders what he was thinking.
*** FanService, man, FanService. He knew Saint Seiya was very popular among the ladies, so...

* MerchandiseDriven: The Steel Saints were inserted in the anime at the request of Bandai to sell action figures about them. The redesign of the first version of the Bronze Saints Cloths (compared to those found in the manga) are also due to Bandai's request, one could argue it was for the better.
