So it's not uncommon for Saint Seiya and Sailor Moon to be compared to each other, so I was wondering, how would a crossover between the two series work out? Who would be the villain? How would the characters interact or come together?

I doubt it would work. Both shows deal with mythology but in very different ways. Mars would be technically a villain from the pov of the saints.

If the worlds collide, it can work. I'd like to see the Saints and Sailor Scouts interact. Like Seiya with Usagi, Shun with Minako, Ikki with Rei, Shiryu and Makoto, Hyoga and Ami

I think the villain could be the Goddess Selene maybe

Selene is Queen Serenity, Princess Serenity's mum. She says it herself in both manga and anime. It still collides badly.

That can be easily solved by knowing two background facts:
  1. We don't know when the Silver Millennium happened, except that it was before the invention of (modern) writing and somehow some knowledge filtered down so that Greeks and Romans knew of their people as divinities.
  2. Saint Seiya's gods are actually humans who awakened the Eight Sense (or even the Ninth in some cases), either born from normal people or "gods", who predate the fall of Atlantis (destroyed by Athena and her Saints during the first war against Poseidon) and of Mu (destroyed after the above, unclear if it was a natural catastrophe or Athena dealing with the rebellious Cloth makers that created the Black Cloths).
If their universes are fused, it would be easy to have the Silver Millennium predate Saint Seiya's gods, or even have the earliest "gods" being Silver Millennium survivors, who took the names of the Silver Millennium people (the exception would be Chronos, the god of time (not Kronos the King of Titans, they are two different divinities who were later fused, and in Saint Seiya they're shown to be different individuals), as he's ancient!Sailor Pluto's father).

It could also be used to have the two parts get in conflict: Athena and her Sanctuary have ruled the world for millennia (with a very hands-off approach), and Sailor Moon, by existing, is an enormous danger to that. Or maybe Sailor Moon goes after Zeus for his reaction to Hades' death. Whatever happens, the end result would be Crystal Tokyo, of course.

I suppose they could have the Saint Seiya Gods be the parents of some of the Senshi like Ares being the father of Sailor Mars etc. Of course Queen Serenity would obviously be the Moon Goddess Selene.

Oh, I wasn't asking like the lore get fused, just like a crossover. Like the characters meet because I dunno, their worlds tart to get collided or get transported

Well, I can totally ship manga Rei with the Swan. Both are calm, reserved and have some family drama that would let them open up to each other.

I think it would be Hyoga and Ami, Ikki and Rei, Shun and Minako, Shiryu and Makoto and Seiya and Usagi
Yeah, most likely, but it is always this silly paired by powers and not personality. Shiryu and Makoto are otp, though. But Shun is totally gay, I would pair him with Mamoru.Ikki and old anime Rei would be perfect, but manga Rei... Highly doubt it.

I think Shun and Minako would go well

I'm looking at anime continuity anyway

Ok, here is how I figured the crossover would go, just throwing out some ideas
1. The villain would be like the Titan Selene of the Saint Seiya and she comes across Sailor Moon and due to her link to the moon, wants to use her to become stronger. Now I'm not sure if the worlds will get merged/collide or they travel between different universes or it's like a crossover where they exist in the same setting

2. The Bronze Saints would go to where the Sailor Senshi live to like investigate something and would split up with Seiya and Shun while Shiryu and Hyoga. The former would meet Usagi and Minako while the latter meet Rei, Makoto and Ami at the Shrine. I figured later Athena would maybe showup at their school to and the Bronze Saints with her. I also imagined Athena would host some gathering party where they meet again

Again I don't think this would work as the Titan Selene is Queen Serenity she even mentioned as such.

Hmmm, is she really or just uses her name? Again, if the worlds are coming together, it can be Selene from the Saint Seiya verse,making her seperate?
How does the other part sound?

Well in the 90s anime Queen Serenity specifically referred to herself as the "Incarnation of the Moon Goddess Selene." So she basically said she was this Goddess of the same name. Both Sailor Moon and Sailor Pluto were said to have Divine Parents. Sailor Moon aka Princess Serenity's being Queen Serenity aka Selene and Sailor Pluto's being the God of Time Chronos.

I see, well then, seems for my crossover, it'll be Selene from the Saint Seiya world then. Unless if the worlds do exist in the same way, I could use the Roman incarnation Luna. Or maybe the Japanese deity Tsukuyomi

Also did you see my other ideas? How did they sound?

Yeah, everything is possible in cross overs, but I don't think the themes of the two shows would allowed it. I'm not really fan of crossovers. Although Sailor Moon and Madoka can be good, but then the two art styles would clash badly.
