Putting in a subversion example in "Berserk" from one of the recent chapters

I thought I'd just emphasize the fact that medieval armor itself wasn't useless, but rather that knights were sometimes victims of the Peltzman effect.

I do not think the "real life" medieval plate armor entry—which seems to be a recent addition—is supported enough by either historical martial arts research or military history. I am not saying that medieval plate armor was perfect, because thrusting a sword or spear into vulnerable joints or delivering a powerful blow to the head with a mace or warhammer were viable tactics, but this trope is about when armor is easily defeated by weapons that should not be able to pierce it. Controlled tests with accurate weapons and armor and study of historical fencing and war treatises show that knightly plate armor was highly resistant against all medieval weapons, which is why knights and nobles universally wore full plate armor and foot soldiers and mercenaries wore as much of it as they could either afford or scavenge.
