Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* In ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'', Kyrie ''may'' get the Crimson Gear, assuming you [[spoiler:revisited Barni before he died, then revisited Barni ''again'' after he was resurrected - keep in mind that Barni is now an utter ghost town and you have ''no'' other reason to try to go there]]. If not, it becomes LostForever and you get the Crimson Robe as a consolation prize. Both are stronger than any other armor he can obtain, but the Gear nullifies all elements as well as having a higher defensive value. Other characters also have an ultimate armor personal to them, though they only have one ultimate option; in their cases, the catch is more often triggering the quest itself, rather than remembering to [[GuideDangIt do random things at the appropriate time to ensure you get the better option]] (in particular, Rhi'a's dresses are known to be a pain to trigger; even though the only thing you have to do is walk into town, it's up to the game to decide if this particular visit is the one where Felis Rex will decide to send her a present - so you may get several in a row if you exit and reenter, or you may get nothing no matter how many times you get on and off your ship at the docks).

* DarkSouls has [[MightyGlacier Havel's]] Armor. It's made from '''primordial rock''' and is the best defensive and most stable armor in the game. The [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Stone Giant]] set has higher physical resistance, at the cost of being [[AwesomeYetImpractical even heavier]].

* The Fiend Ring from ''VideoGame/Lunar2EternalBlueComplete'' is found in [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon Zophar's Domain.]] On one side, it brings your health to 1 every time you start a fight. On the other side, it boosts physical and magic defense by ''so'' much, that nothing could ever hope to cause lasting damage any more, especially if you also wear the [[GradualRegeneration Healing Ring.]]

* Greed's impenetrable shield in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. It's formed by him rearranging the carbon atoms in his body into a diamond lattice, which is then melded to perfectly fit his body. [[spoiler:Edward is eventually able to discover the flaw in his armor by alchemically reconfiguring the carbon from diamond into graphite, the same trick Greed himself uses to help defeat Father when he forces Greed into his body.]]

to:

* Armor of Invincibility is worn by the EliteMook Juggernauts of ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare''. Rendering its wearer capable of soaking up mag after mag of assault rifle and sniper fire, an enemy wearing said armor can be a right pain to deal with. [[ThatOneLevel Later waves of Survival mode]] throw several at the survivors at once from multiple directions, and donning one is an optional killstreak reward in multiplayer matches. The sole time they show up in the campaign, [[spoiler:you and your mate are said Juggernauts.]]

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''. Near the end of a No Mercy run, you get a Locket that makes your defense 99 which should theoretically make fights a complete cakewalk, except that the sole remaining enemy in the game turns out to deal only ScratchDamage. A [[DeathOfAThousandCuts constant, unrelenting stream of]] ScratchDamage that bypasses your armor '''and''' MercyInvincibility.

Conversely, the enemy in question only has [[OneHitPointWonder 1 HP and 1 defense]], but [[NonchalantDodge casually dodges]] [[MarathonBoss every single one of your attacks.]] It's kinda like the game is mocking you for thinking that numbers equal power.

to:

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'': The game's rereleases add a literal suit of medieval armor as an unlockable costume for Ashley. This makes her completely invincible, as the armor will not only prevent her from taking any kind of damage (Even ''explosions'' cause her to merely fall on her behind harmlessly), but is also too heavy to allow any enemy to kidnap her. This makes the sections with her much easier, as you don't need to worry about her safety anymore.

to:

* ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'': In the expansion's orc campaign, you can find an item called the Baneblade Armor, which not only gives the holder 7 armor but gives him and surrounding units 1 armor (around 30% damage reduction total on the carrier).
* ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar II'': Towards the end of the first game, you can obtain several suits of Terminator armor, though they're not usable by all squads. They make the game a lot easier... or would, if by that point the enemies weren't fully capable of overwhelming you.
