* PunchClockVillain: While some are evil or have personal reasons, most of the Saints sent by the Sanctuary to kill Saori and her group are only aware that they revealed the existance of the Sanctuary to the world and her Saints broke the Sanctuary's law when they wielded their Cloths for personal reasons in the Galaxian Wars. Notably, in the manga the first assassin was ''Hyooga'', who had been sent before Saga found out what he was really dealing with.

* [[TenMinuteRetirement 10-Minute Retirement]]: Manga only where, [[spoiler: all the Bronze Saints quit after finding out that Kido was their father along with ninety-five other orphans around the world. They changed their mind as soon as Saori gets kidnapped again.]]

* MediumBlending: For some odd reason, in the Hades Sanctuary OVA, Seiya's transformation sequence was done completely in a very generic 3D. Shun's transformation sequence used traditional animation for his character and 3D in the back and it looks [[SoCoolItsAwesome awesome]].

** The depiction of hell in the ''Hades'' arc draws lots of inspiration from Dante Alighieri's ''Divine Comedy''.

** Libra Dohko: an old man of more than 250 years old that walks using a stick (and that's actually an {{expy}} of StarWars Yoda), can be even more {{badass}} than any of the younger Saints. Not to mention that [[spoiler: he actually hides his young shape intact, shelled inside his old body, ready to use if becomes necessary]]

* NextTierPowerUp:
** The Sacred Cloths of Athena change into sleeker, more impressive new forms whenever they're destroyed and have to be rebuilt (especially the Bronze Cloths, which are broken at least once per series.) Works as a non-sexual form of {{Fanservice}} as the Constellation form of the Cloths [[CostumePorn becomes more and more intricately detailed with each iteration]] -- the original Pegasus and Cygnus Cloths required a LOT of imagination to resemble a winged horse or a swan, but by the time they became [[spoiler:Divine Cloths through Athena's blood]] they were near-perfect reproductions -- and they cover more and more of their Saint's body at the same time.
** In regards to the Saints themselves, their goal in the Sanctuary Arc was to awaken to the mystical [[EleventhHourSuperpower Seventh Sense]], which would allow them to perceive the Cosmo of faster-than-light Gold Saints and counterattack. In the Hades Arc, the objective was the ''[[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands Eighth]] Sense'', which grants them entrance into [[{{Hell}} the Hades]] while still being alive. Then, when facing Hades' [[TheDragon Dragons, Thanatos and Hypnos]], the overwhelming force of the Bronze Saints' Cosmo upgrades them (and their Cloths, see above) [[AGodAmI to godly levels]].



* OnlyThePureOfHeart:
** The Gold Clothes of Athena's most powerful saints are said to have just enough sentience to tell whether their owner truly fights for justice or not. This eventually leads to [[spoiler:the Cancer cloth abandoning Deathmask mid-fight for being a murderous psychopath, though it of course waits until an appropriately dramatic moment to do so]]. However, even those who desire peace and justice can be lead astray, and the entire conflict of the Twelve Houses ordeal comes straight from the Goldies failing to recognize the evil in their current Pope until it's too late.
** On the flip side, every time a Holy War crops up, the person with the purest heart on Earth is ultimately destined to [[spoiler:become the human vessel of Hades, through which he intends to destroy the world. This happens even if said soul is already on the other side of the conflict.]]



* OutOfTheInferno: Ikki, ''literally.''
** Several times.
* OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank: Shiryu. Full stop.

to:

* OutOfTheInferno: Ikki, ''literally.''
''literally'' has his resurrection scene with the fire that was burning a forest and his brother, he appears out of the fire carrying his brother and extinguishes all the fire with his cosmos. Not surprising given his control over fire, and him generally being a badass.
* OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank:
** Several times.
* OverdrawnAtTheBloodBank: Shiryu. Full stop.
Though everyone bleeds a lot, Shiryu is notable for regularly [[HighPressureBlood geysering]] more blood than everyone else in his team ''has'' at least once per arc. The only time it's played fairly realistic is when he tears his own wrists open so Mu can fix up his and Seiya's suits. Shiryu went into a coma, and it's stated that he teetered on the edge of death, but he miraculously came back and was ready to fight again right then and there.



* PetalPower: The Pisces Saint.

to:

* PetalPower: The Gold Saint Pisces Saint.Aphrodite filled the stairs behind his temple with poisonous roses so, even if he lost, Seiya and Co. wouldn't reach their goals. Too bad Marin derails his plans, though to be fair, he didn't have any way to know she'd show up there.

* HotBlooded: Seiya

to:

* HotBlooded: SeiyaSome characters with Seiya as main example. He is stubborn, headstrong, impulsive and very similar to a classic Japanese teenager.


Added DiffLines:

* HotWings: Phoenix Ikki almost always appears with a fiery, phoenix shaped aura. His most powerful attack always manifests as a phoenix in one shape or another.


Added DiffLines:

* IAmYourOpponent: Pretty much all the time. The heroes' standard operating procedure is to run through the enemy's stronghold and face each one of his lieutenants individually. Typically, one or more of Athena's Saints will arrive at a new battleground, he'll be faced with the [[YouShallNotPass guardian du jour]], and an ally [[BigDamnHeroes will come along]] or [[DwindlingParty stay behind]] to fight the guardian instead, letting the original Saint (mostly Seiya) continue on the mission. Sometimes with these exact words.

** Not to mention the Gold Saints, who all looked to be in their Mid 20s at least, yet when their ages were revealed only a few of them are past 20, with the oldest among them (Saga) being 28, in particular Aiolia who looks to be in his 30s, and has one of the [[BadassBaritone deepest voices]] you'll hear was only 14 [[spoiler:when he died]], and [[BigGuy Big Guy]] Aldebaran being only 20, despite looking to be in his Late 30s-40s. This was most likely due to the author [[DidntThinkThisThrough not thinking that much]] about it given the discrepancies caused to certain plot points.
** And don't let us get to Ikki's flashbacks in which he's seen carrying Shun, ''as a baby'', in his arms! And that's supposing Ikki is 15 and Shun is 13!!!

** This is also sometimes subverted with certain Silver Saints such as Albiore being more than capable [[spoiler: of defending himself against Milo]] or Lyra Orphee being stated to be stronger than the Gold Saints.



** Two minor movie villain: Lyra Orpheus, the Ghost Saint appearing in the first Saint Seiya movie (Lyra Orphee has inspired by him) and one of Abel Saints, Berenice, from thid movie, that has the ability to launch several strands of hair. These hairs Berenices throws are able to trap and disrupt the enemy.
