''SaintSeiyaTheLostCanvas'' was an OVA that lasted two seasons unlike it's predecessor, it will be released in its complete form on DVD in December 2015. In the meantime, we recommend another of Kurumada's works, ''Anime/BtX.''

Right now, ''Manga/SaintSeiyaEpisodeG'', ''Manga/SaintSeiyaEpisodeGA'', ''Manga/SaintSeiyaNextDimension'', ''SaintSeiyaTheLostCanvas Gaidens'' and ''Manga/SaintSeiyaSaintiaSho'' are still being released in manga form.

* DuelingMessiahs: The reason behind TheForeverWar is Athena wanting to allow the world to develop on its own terms while Poseidon wanted to flood it and Hades wanted to make it a new Underworld by blocking the sun with the Ultimate Eclipse, both to "fix" it.

[[spoiler: Shiryu, Hyoga (during During the Poseidon Arc) Arc Cygnus Hyoga allows/begs Kraken Isaac to hit his eye... since Isaac lost an eye ''because'' of him, after getting impaled through it [[KillItWithIce with a stalactite]] while saving Hyoga's life]].
** 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 friend Isaac.]]life.]]
** During the anime's rendition of the Galactic Tournament, right before his death Black Cygnus took off the swan ornament from his helmet and crushed it to send information to his boss (a still not {{Heel Face Turn}}ed Ikki). In the manga, he plucked one of his eyes instead.

The [[FiveManBand five core cast]] members are:
* '''Seiya''': The Pegasus Saint [[BeamSpam (Light]], [[RapidFireFisticuffs Energy)]] - TheLeader 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)]] - TheLancer, and 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)]] - TheQuietOne and sort of TheSmartGuy, 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)]] - TheChick ([[DudeLooksLikeALady and yes, he's a guy]]), also 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, and SixthRanger (er, fifth?). 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]].

The story in the anime and manga differs considerably following Ikki's defeat, but it centers in the Bronze Saints facing several other saints sent by the Sanctuary with orders to kill them (and in the anime only, recover the [[MacGuffin Sagittarius Cloth helmet]], the only part of the Cloth the good guys were able to keep). Midway through the battles against the [[RankInflation Silver Saints]], it is revealed that Saori is the reincarnation of Athena and leadership of Sanctuary is hers by right, which at the time is under control of the nefarious Pope (no, not [[UsefulNotes/ThePope that one]]), who wants her dead so he can claim her position as protector of the Earth. Eventually Saori and all the Bronze Saints decide to challenge the Pope directly, and [[StormingTheCastle travel to the Sanctuary]]. Due to some treachery, Athena/Saori is hit by an arrow powerful enough to fell a god in twelve hours... time which the Saints must use to [[BossRush defeat]] the other ''eleven'' Gold Saints and use the shield on the statue of Athena to save their goddess from death.

* FiveBadBand: Most villain groups in the series are too numerous or varied to count, but the Black Saints -- as a sort of EvilCounterpart to the main bronze saints -- played this trope mostly straight. To whit:
** BigBad: Ikki, until his HeelFaceTurn.
** TheDragon: Black Dragon (no pun intended)
** TheBrute: Black Pegasus
** EvilGenius: Black Swan (ish)
** DarkChick: Black Andromeda
** SixthRanger: Black Phoenix (anime only)
* FiveManBand: Our heroes, ladies and gentlemen.
** BigGood: Saori/Athena
** TheHero: Pegasus Seiya
** TheLancer: Dragon Shiryu
** TheSmartGuy/TheQuietOne: Cygnus Hyoga
** TheBigGuy: Phoenix Ikki
** TheChick/TheHeart: Andromeda Shun
** {{Mentor}}s: Dohko and [[spoiler: Aiolos, ''from beyond the grave'']] as well as each Saint's individual mentor to greater or lesser extent.

* ArmyOfTheDead: In "Hades Arc", Hades brings back to life fallen Gold Saints of Athena, granting them 12 hours to bring him her head. If they do so, he may bring them back to life for real. [[spoiler: It turns out that they remained loyal to their Goddess nonetheless and only accepted Hades' deal to warn her about the upcoming Holy War while killing some members of Hades' army in the process. Once the 12 hours delay expired, they disappeared to return to the Underworld (where they join again to fire a super CombinedEnergyAttack).]]

* A sequel to Brave Soldiers, release date September 25th 2015, for PS3, PS4, and Steam/PC, ''Saint Seiya: Soldiers' Soul'', includes the Gold God Cloths from 'Anime/SaintSeiyaSoulOfGold''. Notable in that it is the first game to actually cover the anime-only Asgard arc, and the game is also the first to be dubbed into other languages (no English dub, however) since the PS2 games.

* TrainingFromHell: Every single Saint endured hellish training to earn his or her Sacred Cloth -- doing finger-stands (as in, standing on the tip of your index finger) during rain and snow, punching glaciers or mountains thousands of years old and not giving up until they crumbled, doing upside-down pullups while hanging from your feet above a chasm, being chained between two rocks and being forced to push back the ocean tide with your BattleAura before you drown, that sort of thing. And even then, the characters that endured these trials gasp in horror at the one who came back from [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Death Queen Island]], considered the worst ordeal of them all.
