* FanNickname: ''[[Anime/DragonBallGT Saint Seiya GT]]'', both made by Toei Animation, with no input from their original creators, set many years after the original series' ending, not canon to the original universe and with polarizing fan reactions.
** ''[[Anime/YuGiOhGX Saint Seiya GX]]'', both spin-offs of a popular anime, focusing on a younger cast, introducing a [[BrokenBase controversial]] school that teaches each universe's concepts, and also with polarizing fan reactions.
* HeyItsThatVoice: The Brazilian dub, in which, among the Bronze Saits alone, Kouga is [[HouseOfAnubis Jerome Clark]], Yuna is [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Buttercup]], Ryuhou is [[SteelAngelKurumi Nakahito]] and [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 Leonardo]], and Haruto is [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Trip]] -- additionally, Kouga's and Ryuhou's voice actors played [[OneDirection Liam and Zayn]], respectively, in one episode of {{Nickelodeon}}'s ''You Gotta See This!'', while Haruto, Eden and Aria's voice actors are all in ''BigTimeRush'', as Carlos, Logan and Katie, respectively.
** Several voice actors in this series were in Saint Seiya before, in different roles:
*** [[Creator/HikaruMidorikawa Kouga]] was Touma in [[SaintSeiya Tenkai-hen: Overture]]
*** [[Creator/TetsuyaKakihara Ryuho]] was [[SaintSeiyaTheLostCanvas Pegasus Tenma]]
*** [[Creator/AkiraIshida Amor]] was [[SaintSeiyaTheLostCanvas Virgo Asmita]]
*** [[Creator/HiromiTsuru Pallas]] was [[SaintSeiya Chameleon June]]
*** [[YuuMizushima Subaru]] was [[SaintSeiya Lizard Misty, Orion Jäger, Loki, Mizar Zeta Syd and Alcor Zeta Bud]]
* TheOtherDarrin:
** Shoko Nakagawa is darrining Creator/KeikoHan and Creator/FumikoOrikasa as Saori/Athena.
** Creator/KiyoyukiYanada replaced Yuji Mikimoto as Geki.
** Creator/HiroshiKamiya is replacing Creator/RyoHorikawa as [[spoiler: Andromeda Shun]]
** Creator/ShigeruNakahara darrin'd Creator/HirokoEmori and UmekaShoji as Kiki ([[SheIsAllGrownUp well he's an adult now so it's understandable]])
** Creator/MamoruMiyano replaced Creator/HiroakiMiura and Creator/KoichiHashimoto as [[spoiler:Cygnus Hyoga]].
** Creator/KenNarita replaces the late Creator/HirotakaSuzuoki and Creator/TakahiroSakurai as [[spoiler: Dragon Shiryu]].
* PlayingAgainstType: Creator/HikaruMidorikawa (Kouga), as he tends to play cool, collected characters.
* RecycledScript: The whole series is ''heavily'' based on the Sanctuary arc of the original series, to the point of being called just a rehash. Bronze Saint tournament, journey overlapping with battle against the Silver Saints, and now even ''another'' "climb the Twelve Temples" arc. Many new characters are [[{{Expy}} very similar]] to old ones, too.
** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] with the second season.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: They don't just bring in ''Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure'''s Character Designer, but also two [[Creator/HikaruMidorikawa cast]] [[Creator/AyaHisakawa members]] from them... though [[BigBad Dune]] is now the IdiotHero while [[DefrostingIceQueen Yuri/Cure Moonlight]] is the DarkActionGirl.
** To be frank, a lot of ''Anime/PrettyCure'' voice actors are in this one. For one thing, Yuna and Ryuhou are, respectively, [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Akane/Cure Sunny]]'s mother and ImpliedLoveInterest, with the former also being [[Anime/SuitePrettyCure Hibiki/Cure Melody]]'s mother; Aria was previously [[PrettyCureAllStars Ayumi/Cure Echo]]; Raki is [[Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Karen/Cure Aqua]]; Gemini Paradox is none other than [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure Honoka/Cure White]]; Cancer Schiller is [[Anime/FreshPrettyCure Tarte]]; and Pisces Amour (who also happens to be the aforementioned DarkActionGirl's uncle) is [[Anime/HeartcatchPrettyCure Cologne]].
** Also [[Creator/TetsuyaKakihara Ryuhou]] vs [[Creator/{{Yukana}} Paradox]] gets HilariousInHindsight when you realize it's basically [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Jin Kisaragi vs Saya]]. Switching place on who's being the 'bullied' party.
* RoleReprisal: Creator/MamiKoyama reprises her role as Shaina, and Creator/YukitoshiHori reprises his role as Tatsumi. Creator/ToruFuruya returns as Seiya after 6 years.
* TalkingToHimself: [[spoiler: Creator/{{Yukana}} voices the twin sisters Paradox and Integra. She spends a good portion of episodes 75 and 84 switching between the two characters.]]
