For those who have not completed games in the Xenoblade Chronicles series, this page contains spoilers regarding the plot. Discretion is advised.

Armour is protective equipment worn on the body of characters in Xenoblade Chronicles. Armour is dropped by enemies, earned from quests, bought at shops or received through trading with NPCs. It affects characters' stats as well as their appearance. The same piece of armour will look different on each character, but usually there are some similarities such as feathers or straps. There are often several different armours sharing the same appearance but having different stats. For a complete visual guide to the appearance of armour on each playable character, see Armour Recognition.

The Physical Def and Ether Def stats of equipped armour are added to the character's defence stats, while its Weight is subtracted from Agility, which affects the character's evasion and hit rate. Weight is generally related to related to the armour's type (Light, Medium, or Heavy), although there are exceptions; for example, the Empress Mask is classified as Light Armour, but has a relatively high weight of 5. The weight of equipped armour can be reduced by certain skills, such as Dunban's Equipment Expert.

Some armour can only be acquired via quests. For example the Dyed Top, Dyed Bottoms and Dyed Mules can only be acquired by completing A Young Captain's Request.

When selling armour at shops, the sell price is dependent on whether it has an empty slot; armour with 1 slot will sell for 20% more than the unslotted version. If a gem is equipped in the armour's slot, it will be removed and returned to the player's inventory when that armour is sold.

Riki's Buy Stuff! skill increases the sell price by 20%. This bonus is received even if he is not in the active party. In the case of slotted armour, the bonus is 20% of the normal sell price of the slotted item.

When buying armour at a shop, the purchase price is 10 times the selling price of the identical armour with the same number of slots. For example, a Nine Top with one slot can be sold for 96 G, but will cost 960 G when purchased at a shop. The purchase price is not affected by Riki's Buy Stuff! skill.

Pieces of Armour

There are five parts of the body on which armour can be equipped: Head, Torso, Arms, Legs, and Feet. Armour can only be equipped on the corresponding part of the body; for example Head Armour cannot be equipped on the Legs. This means to get a full set, five different pieces of armour must be obtained.

Types of Armour

There are four types of armour:

List of Armour

Light Armour tends towards low weight and an emphasis on Ether Defence. All characters can equip Light Armour.

Light Armours have four general designs as represented by Glasses (head only), Swimming, Sky, and Makna, with several colour variants of each. The icon usually (but not always) reflects which of the three designs the armour has, with the Swimming and Sky designs sharing the same set of icons.

Medium Armour tends towards medium weight and a balance between Ether Def and Physical Def. It can only be worn by characters who have the Medium Equipment skill, or through Skill Links at a cost of 10 Affinity Coins. Shulk, Reyn, Sharla, and Dunban have this skill as soon as they join the party.

Medium Armours have three general designs as represented by Hunter, Regnas, and Eryth. All medium equipment shares a general appearance with one of the three, with several colour variants of each.

Colonel Boots are worn by Homs colonels, presumably in the Defence Force. For unknown reasons they were cut from the game, and are only accessible using cheat codes.

Heavy Armour tends towards high weight, high Physical Defence and low Ether Defence. It can only be worn by characters who have the Heavy Equipment skill, or through Skill Links at a cost of 15 (Riki and Dunban) or 30 (Reyn and Sharla) Affinity Coins. No characters have this skill unlocked initially, though it is fairly easy for Reyn to learn it.

Melia's Heavy Armour Mastery skill effectively adds 30 to the Ether Defence values for all Heavy equipment.

Heavy Armours have three general designs as represented by Ledios, M100, and Rex. All heavy equipment shares a general appearance with one of the three, with several colour variants of each.

For the torso armour with the same name, see Heavy Armour (item).

For those who have not completed games in the Xenoblade Chronicles series, this page contains spoilers regarding the plot. Discretion is advised.

Mechonis Armour is exclusive to Fiora, and with a few exceptions is the only type of armour she can equip on her mechanised body.

Mechonis armours have six general designs as represented by Ether, Speed, Power, Attack, F Speed, and F Attack. There is also a seventh design which combines a seventh arm design with parts of other designs. There are three colour variants of each design.

Drones are a special case. They have nine general designs, each having two colour variants. Although classified as feet armour, they change the appearance of the winglike equipment on Fiora's back. There is no direct relationship between the designs of drones and other Mechonis armour parts. Equipped drones determine Fiora's current Talent Art.

Unlike other armours, the icons for Mechonis armours are the same for all designs.
