* Terminator Armor from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}}''; in the fluff, it is capable of protecting the Space Marine wearing it from having a building sized HumongousMecha step on him, and on the tabletop the 2+ save it provides will turn away anything short of anti-tank weapons (and it has a special force field to repel those as well).

* In the ''Literature/GreatShip'' novella ''Eater of Bone'', set on a MetalPoorPlanet, one of the original colonists has crafted a suit of armor out of irreplaceable hyperfiber, a [[MadeOfIndestructium nigh-indestructible]] metallic-ceramic material used in starship hulls. However, its sheer strength and hardness backfires when a bullet ricochets off the collar into the innards, thoroughly goring the man and taking him out of action until his transhuman HealingFactor kicks in.

The UltimateBlacksmith sends you out to hunt monsters because he wants to forge you something good but needs rare materials [[RandomlyDrops randomly dropped]] from enemies located around the world. And when you bring them back he forges you... a shield? What about the InfinityPlusOneSword? [[PowerUpLetDown You wanted a sword]]! In the [[BonusLevelOfHell Bonus Dungeon of Hell]], you just beat the {{That One|Boss}} {{SNK|Boss}} BonusBoss and open the chest behind it to find... a suit of Diamond armor, what the hell? Well you put so much work into finding it, may as well equip it. So you go into the menu and highlight this new item and... oh. ''Oh!''

I'm sorry, did you just say the armor is [[Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike made of diamonds]] or [[MadeOfWin WIN]]!?

You just won the Armor of Invincibility, the best defensive item in the game, bar none, with stats far surpassing the other equipment pieces you can expect to find, and may offer protection from StandardStatusEffects and ElementalPowers. DemonicSpiders don't even dent it, and even the {{Boss Battle}}s have become {{Curb Stomp Battle}}s with it on. This is the shield to go in your other hand while you grasp the InfinityPlusOneSword in the other. As with the Infinity Plus One Sword, the only real drawback is that you'll be required to sink hours into finding the Armor of Invincibility, maybe even doing ThatOneSidequest. May just be a BraggingRightsReward. Or, if you plan to face the BonusBoss, it may be a requirement to avoid getting killed in one hit.

* Late Medieval [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plate_armour plate armor]] epitomized this trope for its era. It was famous for its ability to NoSell anything short of a [[ArmorPiercingAttack war hammer]], and only really went out of favor when early guns started to appear, taking away its main advantage.

* In most given ''KingdomHearts'' games, odds are that the Ribbon will be the best equipment available. It usually has the best defensive boost of any armor and also gives resistance to all elemental damage.

** Gilgamesh from ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' and ''LightNovel/FateZero'' wears a suit of golden armor that, despite its appearance, is extremely durable - it can survive a barrage of sword strikes from (an admittedly weakened) Saber without a scratch, and allows him to survive the destruction of his CoolAirship while suffering only minor damage. The only things that have been shown to be able to pierce it are activated Noble Phantasms, the ultimate techniques of Servants, such as [[spoiler:his own Merodach's SwordBeam reflected back at him by Shirou's Avalon and Saber's Excalibur fired ''point-blank''.]]
