Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/WildArms'', there was a knightly order in which every member had a title based on a piece of armor. Jack Van Burace was once Knight of the Vambrace. The re-release on [=PS2=] screwed up the reference by making him Knight of the Gauntlet instead.

Added DiffLines:

* When they’re not re-using the names of the Journey ships, the Literature/{{Rihannsu}} tend to use these types of names for their warships. Examples include ''Cuirass'' and ''Gorget'' (although the latter was also a Journey ship).
** Subverted by ''Rhea's Helm'', named after the most infamous creation of a rather nasty JackassGenie that was worse than useless as armor (Rhea was a mage that got captured by an enemy who wanted to become invulnerable. Rhea made that helm... And bound to it a demon that ''bit off the captor's head'', [[ExactWords making him invulnerable because dead men cannot be wounded]]).
