Ranking of the Gold Saints by strength
« on: July 02, 2007, 10:27:30 AM »
I remember, many donkey years ago, that Masami has listed the Gold Saints in order of fighting ability. Needless to say I've lost that piece of article, and my search across the internet has been futile. Why don't we post what *we* think is the ranking of the Gold Saints in decreasing strength (based on appearances in the original manga/anime only)?

1) Virgo Shaka
2) Gemini Saga
3) Libra Dohko
4) Aries Mu
5) Leo Aiolia = Aquarius Camus
7) Scorpio Milo = Capricorn Shura
9) Taurus Aldebaran
10) Cancer Deathmask
11) Pisces Aphrodite
12) Sagittarius Aioros (yeah this isn't really fair to the dude since he died way too young and probably with unfulfilled potential)

For completion's sake, Aries Shion would be on par with Libra Dohko, with Gemini Kanon just beneath those two.

Any thoughts?

The Saint Seiya Taizen has an overview of the fighting abilities of the Saints in 5 areas (Fist techniques, Foot techniques, Cloth capabilities + other accessories, Cosmo power and far distance techniques)

Here's a French translation of the Taizen with the diagrams: http://pas2.free.fr/diamondust/Taizen.php

Shainas Harem: Camus, DeathMask, Manigoldo + Dégel. Adopted: Shaina, Alberich, Hyoga, Jabu, Yato + Cassios.

i kind of agree with how you made your list. i found one site though that did something with comparing maybe fighting stats in some way. (like smarts, power,etc.) though i could be wrong because i couldn't read it.
does not know where, what or who they are. drawn to the dark and fearing the light. what can they do is in the dark. how sad it is to be a lost soul with no where to go.

There are a few changed I'd make, but that's pretty close.

Well, I don't know French either, but I checked out the little circle diagram on each dossier.  If I'm interpreting that thing right, Shion is the most balanced, followed by Dohko and Aiolos.  To me, that'd make him the most powerful, but I could be wrong.  Following that vein, Shaka is about the middle of the list or thereabouts.

Shion, Saga and Aioros would probably top my list for "strongest"

Okay, here's a general overview of the Goldies with their "power diagrams". Sorry, this time it's Portuguese, but I thought the diagrams are  quite evident anyway:

ould have to say so too because he was known as the most god like of the gold knights in power.
does not know where, what or who they are. drawn to the dark and fearing the light. what can they do is in the dark. how sad it is to be a lost soul with no where to go.

It makes sense to me that Shion is the strongest.  It'd take some strength to keep all the Saints in line.
