Kid Icarus: Uprising is a game mostly about gods fighting each other so none of the big players are wearing much in the way of armor, mostly swooshy robes, however you do meet two humans in the game.
First is Magnus:
A guy kinda just wearing clothes.
The second is Dark Lord Gaol:
A woman wearing armor that’s incredibly ridiculous but in the exact opposite direction from what you usually get.
I really, really love Dark Lord Gaol’s outfit as an example of a costume that is loaded with personality and expression – but also reads as being a badass suit of armor. The combination of practical base (metal plates that shield everything vital) and unreal additions (the giant horns, the knee spike, etc) really give it a larger than life fantasy badass feel.
