* 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.

* ''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.

* ''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.

** The Temmie armor from the same game is a more straight example, however getting it first requires you to pay a large sum of money to help temmie go to college, then even more to buy the actual armor, though the price goes down every time you die.

* 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.
