* In ClassicalMythology, no weapon could pierce the skin of the Nemean Lion. Hercules killed it by strangling it, then took its skin to wear himself.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfDragoon'' had Legend Armor and Legend Casque which reduced physical and magical damage respectively to roughly 1/5th of what it would normally do on top of giving you 50% chance to dodge said damage. The catch? Each cost 10,000 gold, and every enemy that wasn't a MetalSlime or a boss dropped 30-50+ gold at best.

** ''Industrial Craft 2'' (which is also part of ''Tekkit'') features Quantum armor. By spending the time to get several lapis power gems that require diamonds, iridium plating that requires an immense power source for a matter generator and Nano armor requiring carbon fiber and power gems, you can get a full set of armor that allows you to run extremely fast, jump really high, your hunger never goes down and damage is negated to the point that you can ''swim in lava'' as long as the power source lasts. It's easy to charge as well if you have several HV Solar Arrays connected to a MK-3 Charging Bench.

It's easy baseline for performance. A vast number of mods feature much stronger armor than diamond, including some that provide ''actual'' invincibility by way of DeflectorShields or the like. Many mods that include enhanced armor also include at least one suitably difficult BonusBoss to charge use it on, as well if you have several HV Solar Arrays connected the vanilla game's challenges are no longer threatening to a MK-3 Charging Bench.someone with the armor.

* ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' follows suit with ''Hyper Muteki'', a form based on [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Super Sonic]] and the [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Invincibility Star]]. It fully lives up to its name, as the wearer of the suit becomes a literal InvincibleHero: not even the final boss can damage him beyond just knocking him around. Complicating matters is that Ex-Aid is a doctor, and his ''patients'' aren't invincible just because ''he'' is.

*** 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.

to:

* ''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.
