Updated October 27, 2020 17.3k votes 2.3k voters 16.3k views45 items

Not many anime characters wear armor, but the ones that do are pretty great! This list ranks the best anime characters who wear armor, including fan favorites like Erza Scarlet, Saber, and many more. Does Alphonse Elric really count if he's not necessarily wearing armor, but rather existing in it? For the sake of this list, we'll say yes. Vote up your favorite armor-wearing anime characters, and add any to the list that aren't already here. The characters don't necessarily have to be wearing armor all the time, but if they fight in it, or sometimes wear armor, then it's perfectly fine.
