The Bronze Cloths are the lowest class of the Cloths that Athena's Saints wield, and the most common. They provide the least protection, and cover the least amount of flesh, generally, but they also tend to have special abilities that make them unique.

Cloth Traits

Like all Cloths, Bronze Cloths are alive. Using the Cosmo of the wearer, they function as protection. They can be destroyed, quite easily by comparison to other Cloth. They all freeze at -150 degrees Celsius and typically speaking, the wearers can only fight at around mach one speed. Their level of coverage is minimal, as there are few pieces of it, so a fatal blow is easier. Plus, the strength of the Cloths, initially, is low on the Cloth scale.

Cloth History

Bronze-Main Character's Weapon of Choice?

While the weakest of the Cloths in most respects, a majority of the Saint Seiya series have their main characters use Bronze Cloth in their heroics. They are often new, at the start, and grow beyond most expectations relatively quickly, while working with subpar materials.

Known Bronze Cloths

Canon Bronze Cloths
Pegasus Bronze Cloth
First form Pegasus Cloth.

The Pegasus Bronze Cloth is used by Seiya in the Original Series, Tenma in The Lost Canvas, and Next Dimension, and by Kouga in Omega. It is notable for having been modified more times than any other Cloth in the series. It goes through an entire six forms during the original series. Also, in every series but Episode G, the main character wears the Pegasus Bronze Cloth as his primary defense. It starts off with a relatively low level of damage endurance and coverage, but grows considerably during the series. In it's fourth form, it even takes on Gold Cloth qualities when Seiya burns his Cosmo to it's maximum. While it doesn't show this ability in later forms, it does gain the ability to sprout wings in it's fifth form, and fly. It can also transform into the Pegasus God Cloth when his Cosmo approaches infinity, due to Athena's blood having been used to remake the Cloth.

Dragon Bronze Cloth
First form Dragon Cloth.

The Dragon Bronze Cloth is used by Shiryu in the Original Series and Next Dimension, and by Ryūhō in Omega. It is notable for having one of the most powerful shields a Cloth can have, outside of Libra Shields. It starts off with a decent amount of coverage and a highly impressive defensive ability for a Bronze Cloth. In it's third form, it even takes on Gold Cloth qualities when Shiryu burns his Cosmo to it's maximum. It seems to lose this ability in later forms. It can also transform into the Dragon God Cloth when his Cosmo approaches infinity, due to Athena's blood having been used to remake the Cloth.

Cygnus Bronze Cloth
First form Cygnus Cloth.

The Cygnus Bronze Cloth is used by Hyoga in the Original Series and in Next Dimension. It lacks any real special ability. It starts off with a decent amount of coverage and a modest defensive ability for a Bronze Cloth. In it's second form, it even takes on Gold Cloth qualities when Hyoga burns his Cosmo to it's maximum. While it doesn't show this ability in later forms, it does gain the ability to sprout wings in it's third form, and fly. It can also transform into the Cygnus God Cloth when his Cosmo approaches infinity, due to Athena's blood having been used to remake the Cloth.

Andromeda Bronze Cloth
First form Andromeda Cloth.

The Andromeda Bronze Cloth is used by Shun in the Original Series and in Next Dimension. It is notable for having the Bronze Chains, weapons with a good defensive instinct, and both offensive and defensive abilities. It starts off with a decent amount of coverage and a modest defensive ability for a Bronze Cloth, which the chain adds to. In it's second form, it even takes on Gold Cloth qualities when Shun burns his Cosmo to it's maximum. It seems to lose this ability in later forms. It can also transform into the Andromeda God Cloth when his Cosmo approaches infinity, due to Athena's blood having been used to remake the Cloth.

Phoenix Bronze Cloth
First form Phoenix Cloth.

The Phoenix Bronze Cloth is used by Ikki in the Original Series and in Next Dimension. It is notable for having the ability to regenerate no matter how badly damaged, and is often considered the strongest of the Bronze Cloths. It starts off with a high amount of coverage and a high defensive ability for a Bronze Cloth. Unlike the other Bronze Cloth, which need repair in order to strengthen and change the form, the Phoenix Bronze Cloth fixes itself, and sometimes strengthens itself, while changing it's form in the process. It can also transform into the Phoenix God Cloth when his Cosmo approaches infinity, due to coming in contact with Athena's blood (his Cosmo was already at that level when he came into contact with her blood).

Unicorn Bronze Cloth
Unicorn Cloth.

The Unicorn Bronze Cloth is used by Jabu in the Original Series and by Yato in The Lost Canvas. It's most notable feature is the single horn on the headpiece, which can be used as a weapon, though Jabu never did so. It starts off with a decent amount of coverage and a somewhat low defensive ability for a Bronze Cloth. While it is repaired after being highly damaged by both Shun and Ikki, it does not take a different form, and its current strength is unknown.

Wolf Bronze Cloth
Wolf Cloth.

The Wolf Bronze Cloth is used by Nachi in the Original Series, by Junkers in The Lost Canvas, and by Yoshitomi and Haruto in Omega. It doesn't seem to have a particular stand out ability. It starts off with a low amount of coverage and a low defensive ability for a Bronze Cloth. It is unknown if it has stayed at a normal Bronze Cloth level of strength or if it was strengthened later on.

Hydra Bronze Cloth
Hydra Cloth.

The Hydra Bronze Cloth is used by Ichi in the Original Series and Omega and by Curtis in The Lost Canvas. It's most notable feature is the ability to grow venomous fangs out of any part of Cloth the user chooses, which can also regenerate. It starts off with a decent amount of coverage and a moderate defensive ability for a Bronze Cloth. While it is repaired after being highly damaged by Hyoga, it does not take a different form, and its current strength is unknown.

Bear Bronze Cloth
Bear Cloth.

The Bear Bronze Cloth is used by Geki in the Original Series and by Douglas in The Lost Canvas. It doesn't seem to have a particular stand out ability. It starts off with a high amount of coverage and a moderate defensive ability for a Bronze Cloth. While it is repaired after being highly damaged by Seiya, it does not take a different form, and its current strength is unknown.

Lionet Bronze Cloth
Lionet Cloth.

The Lionet Bronze Cloth is used by Ban in the Original Series, by Bleriot in The Lost Canvas, and by Sōma in Omega. It doesn't seem to have a particular stand out ability. It starts off with a somewhat-low amount of coverage and a low defensive ability for a Bronze Cloth. While it is repaired after being highly damaged by Jabu, it does not take a different form, and its current strength is unknown.

Chameleon Bronze Cloth
Chameleon Cloth.

The Chameleon Bronze Cloth is used by June in the Original Series, and by an unknown Saint in The Lost Canvas. It's most notable feature is the tail of the Cloth that becomes a whip based weapon. It starts off with a high amount of coverage for a Bronze Cloth and an unknown defensive ability. It is only seen once, and not in actual combat, so it's impossible to judge the strength of the Cloth.

Other Bronze Cloths
Caelum Bronze Cloth
Caelum Cloth.

The Caelum Bronze Cloth isn't used by any Saint in the story so far. Tools that look like the ones belonging to the Cloth have been used several times to repair damaged Cloths. It is not clear if they are from the Caelum Bronze Cloth or other repair Cloth, the Sculptor Bronze Cloth. Nothing more about the Cloth is currently known.

Notable Cloth Abilities

Pegasus: Main Character Status

Not exactly an ability, but rather, every Pegasus Bronze Saint seen thus far has been the Main Character of their respective series. The Cloth itself seems to have no other real unique ability.

Dragon: Strongest Shield

The main feature of the Dragon Bronze Cloth is the Dragon Shield, the most powerful shield of the Cloths (with the possible exception of the Libra Shield *later on, even that shield wouldn't be as strong*). Initially, the whole Cloth was as strong, to go with the "Unstoppable Spear meets the Unpierceable Shield" story. But, the Dragon Shield being strong would remain, rarely breaking, and often stopping a wound from being fatal when it did. It grew stronger with each repair, and later could even become like that of a Gold Cloth. It's strongest form, however, was as the Dragon God Shield.

Andromeda: Bronze Chains

The main feature of the Andromeda Bronze Cloth is the Andromeda Bronze Chains, mighty chains with a high level of instinct. One chain has a circular end, symbolizing it's role as a Defensive Chain, while the triangular end on the second chain shows that it is the Offensive Chain. Often, it can warn of impending danger and even strike if it feels too threatened. But, it also recognizes whether or not the foe is really there. It grew stronger with each repair, and later could even become like that of a Gold Cloth. It's strongest form, however, was as the Andromeda God Chains.

Phoenix: Immortality

The main feature of the Phoenix Bronze Cloth is it's regeneration. Unlike most Cloth (which can be killed), the Phoenix Bronze Cloth can come back from any level of damage. It can also evolve to a stronger, more protective form, if it doesn't just heal itself. Even the Saint who owns the Cloth can come back from the dead (or at least, Ikki can).

Unicorn: Horn Weapon

The main feature of the Unicorn Bronze Cloth is the modest sized horn located on the Cloth's headpiece. Despite being for the Unicorn Bronze Saint, the horn itself is never really used in battle, and seems little more than decoration.

Hydra: Regenerating Poisoned Fangs

The main feature of the Hydra Bronze Cloth is the ability to sprout fangs that secrete poison out of any part of the Cloth that the wearer chooses. The fangs can break off somewhat easily, but they seem to regenerate with little effort even if that happens.

Chameleon: Whip

The main feature of the Chameleon Bronze Cloth is the tail of the Cloth being used as a whip. It's particular strength, range, or any special features beyond being a whip are unknown, as June was defeated off panel by Shun, and left with Saori's home staff.

Caelum and Sculptor: Cloth Repairing Tools

The main feature of these Cloths are that they both contain tools, which can be used to repair damaged Cloths with. There's a great variety of tools in their inventory. If they can be used to fighting is currently unknown.

Notes & Trivia

  • The ranks of the Saints were inspired by school divisions: Junior High Students: Bronze Saints, High School Students: Silver Saints, College Students:G old Saints. The ranks and the armor coverage of the Cloths were inspired by the military: Company Officer: Bronze, Field Officer: Silver, General: Gold. The lower ranks would wear jumpers with short sleeves, the higher ranks would wear jackets, and, the Generals would wear long coats.
