*** There are also racial bonuses that can actually stack on enhancements. A Nord has a bonus of 50% resist cold, meaning frost magic damage will be half as effective on you. Then equip armor that has been enchanted with the highest level resist cold and you'll be at the range of being completely invulnerable to cold damage. However, you'll still get smoked by Fire and Lightning element magic and that nasty Giant would just clobber you to the moon in 1-hit.

** Karna from ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'' possesses a set of armor that puts all other to shame in the form of one of Noble Phantasms, Kavacha and Kundala, a coat of armor and earrings made of [[HardLight solidified]] [[ThePowerOfTheSun sunlight]] that is stated to be "difficult to destroy even for the gods." In addition to their own natural strength, they reduce ''all'' incoming damage (physical, magical, and even conceptual) to 1/10th of its original value before even accounting for his own natural toughness [[spoiler:like when he was [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaled from the inside out by wooden stakes that tore through his body]] and bypassed the armor's defense, and all he did [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction get a bit annoyed before burning the stakes away]]]]. Not for nothing is it agreed in-story by many that the only Servant who can match him in a fight happens to be [[Literature/TheIlliad Achilles]] himself, whose immortal body takes reduced damage from opponents whose Divinity is lower than his and completely nullifies any damage from the non-divine.

* ''VideoGame/Persona3'', ''[[VideoGame/Persona4 4]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/Persona5 5]]'' have the Omnipotent Orb, an accessory which nullifies all attacks except those of the [[InfinityPlusOneElement Almighty]] element. Obtaining it generally requires defeating a BonusBoss, which makes it a BraggingRightsReward since a player capable of getting it would probably be able to beat the game without it anyway.

* ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'' has a set of PowerArmor locked behind multiple security systems. To grab it, you need to find five power cores to hack the locks, but the power cores themselves are kept in obscure ruins that are accessed during various points of the story. If you miss one during the storyline, it's a ten-minute trek to get it back. Aloy can't use the full force of the PowerArmor but she ''can'' refashion the multiple kinetic barriers into a force field, which gives her DeflectorShields that can take the full force of a robot T-Rex charge attack and only needs fifteen seconds to recharge.

* ''Anime/DigimonSavers'': Craniummon/Craniamon's shield Avalon is supposed to be impenetrable and invincible. While it does break in the end, it took ''four'' [[SuperMode Burst Mode]] Digimon to do so.

* In ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'', obtaining the Armor Of Invincibility was Fighter's original goal. He did obtain the ''Armoire'' of Invincibility, which proved equally invincible (except the cork bottom) but significantly less useful.

* The Two-Ton Tunic from ''XiaolinShowdown''. Wearing it pretty much makes you invincible, as attacks don't go through and it's weight makes you stand your ground without even trying. On the flip side, you won't be moving anytime soon.

** The entire [[MagicKnight Arcane Warrior]] Specialization is basically this trope cranked UpToEleven. In addition to the aforementioned Shimmering Shield, it has Combat Magic, the first skill in the tree, which allows the mage to use their magic stat instead of their strength stat so they can wear that top-tier massive armor if they are so inclined, the second ability, Aura of Might, gives them, among other things, a bonus to defense while Combat Magic is active, then the aforementioned Shimmering Shield, And finally, Fade Shroud, a passive modifier to Combat Magic that gives the player +25% chance to dodge attacks and you essentially have a heavily-armored mage that can evade a significant chunk of attacks thrown at them, and then the ones that do hit them will do a pathetic amount of damage.
