Series: Armor Hero
Armor Hero (also known as 铠甲勇士/Kai Jia Yong Shi), is the first Chinese Tokusatsu television show that has a larger budget than a few weeks of lunch money and better writers than twelve-year-olds snorting Ultraman comics with crack.

Xin Nan, Bei Sen, Dong Sha, Xi Zhao, and Kun Zhong are the descendants of the Fire village, the Water village, the Wood village, the Gold village, and the Earth village respectively (which have been wiped out by a fat man and a goateed teenager somehow), their bodies containing a mysterious gene. With the power the Guang Ying Shi ("Light-Shadow Stone"), they are endowed with magical Powered Armor, heirlooms from ancient times.

Bearing such a mighty panoply, these five young men become the embodiment of righteousness: Yan Long Xia the Fire Dragon Hero, Hei Xi Xia the Black Rhinoceros Hero, Tian Ying Xia the Sky Eagle Hero, Xue Ao Xia the Snow Mastiff Hero, and Di Hu Xia the Earth Tiger Hero. As heroes, they fight the evil plans schemed by Emperor of the Darkness and his minions.

The villains' plan is to disrupt the happiness of the community by using pollutants to make pollution monsters that harms the environment and the community's peace. Through their hard work of beating monsters up with a single finisher, the Armor Heroes achieve victory by sealing the fifty-two monsters in fifty-two magical stones and five large magical charms.

Has a sequel, Armor Hero XT.
