Silmarils. As described when he prepares to duel King Fingolfin:
--> [H]e issued forth clad in black armour; and he stood before the King like a tower, iron-crowned, and his vast shield, sable unblazoned, cast a shadow over him like a stormcloud.
** Sauron is usually portrayed like that this too by the artists.

* ''Literature/TaleOfYashima'': Many samurai wear armour with helmets that are designed to inspire fear, but this is especially fitting for lead character Yashiro Sou, who is fully decked out in head-to-toe red armour with an oni kabuto to match.

* In the original ''{{Dragonlance}}'' trilogy, all of the Dragon Highlords had ceremonial plate armor with elaborate helmets. Verminaard actually fought in his. [[spoiler:It backfired, as he had no peripheral vision in the armor, and when he suddenly lost his cleric powers, he was killed shortly afterwards.]]

* Standard fare for the more physically inclined ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' {{Big Bad}}s and higher enemies. Many of these have a very powerful unique class; some of the most memorable examples are [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Hardin]], [[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Zephiel]], and [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius the Black Knight]]. [[spoiler:One is ''finally'' fully playable in the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening thirteenth installment]], namely the Conqueror [[BadassGrandpa Walhart]].]]

* In ''LightNovel/FateApocrypha'', the Saber of Red invokes this trope, wearing a full-body suit of silver and red with numerous [[SpikesOfVillainy spikes]], a {{BFS}} and capped off with a demonic-looking horned helmet, and is actually [[Myth/KingArthur Mordred, the traitor of the Knights of the Round Table]]...except ''[[GenderBender she]]'' has the same body size and build as her "[[GenderBlender dad]]", which is about as nonthreatening as it gets, and looks like a teenaged girl underneath. More than one character actually comments on the stark differences when she takes her helmet off. Also, [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold she's actually pretty nice behind her jerkish demeanor]].
