Also Called

  • Armor Body/Form/Mimicry
  • Suit of Armor Body/Form/Mimicry/Physiology


User with this ability either is or can transform into suit of armor. Users' transformed form is anatomically identical to their normal form, aside of being made of base matter, in which case it contains all to organs and is somewhat vulnerable to attacks. Alternately the user can transform into homogeneous matter, without any part of their form being more important than the other.





  • Because a suit is made of multiple individual pieces, user may be easily taken apart.
  • User may not actually be sentient - created as robot-like weapons through magic or science - making it easy to outsmart.
  • May need a bearer/host to maintain it's physical shape.
