Armors

Mural of the Armors

The nine mystical armors were created a thousand years ago to protect the Mortal realm from Evil. All nine armors were associated with either an element or a season. The Ronin Warriors wore the Elemental armors and the Dark Warlords wore the Season armors.

Creation of the ArmorsEdit

A thousand years ago, the Mortal Realm was invaded by the evil of the Nether Realm. Talpa, the emperor of the evil Dynasty, set out to conquer the world. The humans, despite their efforts, could not stop him. Then, a lone warrior known as the Ancient One came forward. He defeated Talpa and banished his spirit back to the Nether Realm. Talpa's great armor was left behind in the Mortal world. The Ancient One knew that the armor was dangerous, as it was still infused with the Dynasty emperor's chaotic power. To prevent Talpa from returning to the Mortal Realm, the Ancient One divided it into nine separate suits of armor. Each of the nine armors were infused with a Confucian or Bushido virtue with armors: Righteousness/Benevolence (Wildfire/Rekka), Grace/Courtesy (Halo/Korin), Trust (Torrent/Suiko), Justice (Hardrock/Kongo), Wisdom (Strata/Tenku), Loyalty (Ogre/Riki), Obedience (Jackal/Darkness/Yakushi), Piety(Snake/Mugen), and Serenity(Spider/Shikoku). The armors were then locked away until they were needed to defend the Mortal Realm from the evil Dynasty.

AbilitiesEdit

The nine sets of armors have a number of special powers, some of which are transferred to the bearers. Each bearer gains enhanced physical strength and endurance. They can run at high speeds and jump great distances. They're even able to survive in harsh climates, such as the extreme heat and cold. Each armor has a unique fighting technique, or finishing move. In the Japanese version, it was later revealed that each of the elemental armors has the ability to power up their specialty moves in order to summon the stronger "Ultra Ballistic" or "Super Ballistic" moves.

Translation Edit

Endure the Immortality of Mt. Fuji's fire,
Swirling waters you lie in a distant place,
the light blossoms when in the Darkest prison,
Winter comes to the Snowy Mountain,
as he lies floating through the Sky

English VersionEdit

Torch of Spirit, sought through five,
Drinking strength from immortal fire,
Darkest prison sheds the light,
Churning beneath a swirl of salt,
Burning within a throne of rock,
Floating amongst the eyes of ages,
Unmoored in the stream of the sky
