The power to have innate physical armor for protection.

Also Called

  • Armored Skin
  • Natural Armor
  • Skin Armor
  • Thick Skin
  • Tough Skin


The users has or can generate an innate armor as a part of their body, which is resistant to attacks, harm or pain and temperature extremes. The armor varies from obvious, physical defenses, such as scales, thick skin/fur, natural shield, armor or shell, in-organic skin, etc, to bone-nodules below skin, particularly wide/sturdy rib cage, blubber, or simply dense muscle.





  • Weak against Deoxygenation
  • Depending on how heavy armor users may sink in water.
  • If one were to disrupt the process of "armoring up" the results would be user losing the ability to armor up for quite awhile.
  • Selective armoring is rare, in short it is an "all or none" principle, either fully armored or not at all.
  • May sacrifice speed for durability.
  • Reverting back to original form or natural state may be moderately difficult or irreversible.
