  • Saints: The titular Saints are the warriors the serve Athena, wear the Cloths that she provides and protect the world in times of crisis. The Saints are ranked by the Cloth they wear, Bronze Cloth Saints are the weakest, Silver Cloth Saints are stronger than Bronze Cloth Saints and Gold Cloth Saints are the strongest, at any given time their are forty-eight Bronze Saints, Twenty-Four Silver Saints and Twelve Gold Saints. Despite the fact that the Cloths are typically seen as weaker than others it doesn't mean that the Saint can't beat a Saint with a better Cloth, for example, Pegasus Seiya (A Bronze Cloth Saint) defeated Gemini Saga (A Gold Cloth Saint) also Lyra Orphée (A Silver Cloth Saint) is considered stronger than most Gold Saints. The other Gods have their equivalent to Saints, Hades has his Spectres, Poseidon has his Mariners, Eris has her Dryads and Ares has his Berserkers.
  • Cosmo: In the Saint Seiya series, every character is able to manipulate a form of energy called Cosmo, the energy of the universe. This energy powers up all of the characters so they can perform superhuman feats, can be projected as an offensive and defensive tool and can destroy things on the atomic level.
  • Cloth: In the Saint Seiya series, Cloth is one of the main names for the armour that the characters wear. These sets of armour correlate to certain constellations or zodiac symbols. They give whoever wears them enhanced abilities, the higher rank the Cloth is the stronger it makes the user. There are four types of Cloth, Bronze Cloth the weakest, Silver Cloth, Gold Cloth the strongest that can be worn by normal humans and God Cloth which can only be worn by Gods or humans who are as strong as Gods. Note, only the armour worn by Athena's Saints are called Cloth, Saints who serve other Gods have different names for their armour such as Scales for Poseidon's Saints, Leaf for Eris' Saints and Surplices for Hades' Saints.
  • Senses: In the Saint Seiya series, every character has additional senses aside from the five that every other living being has. These senses determine how powerful they are and how well they can use their Cosmo. Every character has the Sixth Sense, Intuition, the Gold Saints and their equivalents have the Seventh Sense, Miracles, those who have died and been resurrected have the Eighth Sense, Arayashiki and the Gods have the Ninth Sense Godhood.
