YMMV / Saint Seiya Abridged

  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Many of them:
    • When the Gemini Saint confronts Hyoga and Shun in his house:
    Gemini: You will never get out alive from this labyrinth! (Evil Laugh)
    Shun: ... This, a labyrinth?
    Hyoga: ...In straight line?
    (both start laughing their asses off, much to the Gemini Saint's irritation)
    • Ailolia's episode opens on the Circle of Life. And ends on "The Lion Sleeps Tonight".
    • Then Seiya delivers this pearl while fighting him:
    Seiya: No way I am gonna get killed by someone with the same name than a chocolate bar!
    • Aiolia confronting the Great Pope:
    Aiolia: It's pointless to lie, Great Pope, I know everything!
    Great Pope: Oh, really? How about the capital of Colombia?
    Aiolia: Bogota!
    Great Pope: Oh my God, it's true! He does know everything!
    Shaka: Oh, so just because he terrorizes men and women, wears a creepy mask, and ends all his sentences with a sardonic laugh, that makes him evil? (Ikki gives him a blank stare) Well... sure, when you put it like that... Oh, forget it!
    • When Shiryu meets Shura, the latter reveals he was the one who killed Aioros years ago.
    Shiryu: Really? His brother the Lion must not like you much.
    Shura: Oh, after all that time, he probably let that go...
    Aiolia (screaming from his own house): I WILL HAVE YOUR SKIN, YOU SON OF A BITCH!
    • Seiya and Shiryu mistaking Milo for Satomi from the BEE HIVE.
    • During the fight between Hyoga and Milo, the former irritates the latter with a speech, leading to this exchange:
    Milo: Camus! May I kill your apprentice in an atrocious, agonizing way?
    Camus (standing at the top of his house during a storm): I am Night. I am Vengeance. I am Aquarius!
    Milo: ... I'll take that as a yes.
    • Aioros finds out the Great Pope is an impostor:
    • This is followed by the Great Pope's reaction when Aioros escapes with the baby Athena:
    "GUARDS! HELP! There is a traitor in the temple, and I swear it isn't me!"
    Yes Yes Yes! Finally! After so much effort - and Silver Saints wasted - the five Bronze Saints are defeated! The Phoenix, atomized! The Dragon, orbited! The Swan, frozen! Andromeda, lying near another man! Hehe, that's weird! And finally Pegasus, that damned Pegasus! Awaiting death in a poisoned field of roses! Mouh ah ah! It's done! Over! Kaput! Cut! That's a wrap! The Sanctuary is mine: I won!
  • Hilarious in Hindsight : The abridged series' opening is Black Sabbath's "Neon Knights". The 2014 CGI movie, Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary, redesigned the armors, notably adding glowing Tron Lines. So, yeah, Seiya and co. really are Neon Knights now. This is even funnier in the Movie's abridged version they made. Seiya's transformation has "Neon Knights" on the background and it suits perfectly.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Ikki only had one real scene for himself so far, and he was hysterical. Shaka helped too. Subverted later, when he shows up to help Seiya against The Pope Saga.
