Armors are protective gear worn by Shovel Knight throughout Shovel of Hope. Much like Plague Knight's Cloaks or Specter Knight's Cloaks, each Armor bestows Shovel Knight with special bonuses.

Shovel Knight starts only with his trusty Stalwart Plate, but he can purchase new Armors from the Armorer once he reach the Armor Outpost. Once purchased, Armors can freely switched between by speaking again the Armorer, or the Goatarmorer found in the Village in New Game Plus (or Zitz in the case of the Toad Gear).

The Armor of Chaos and the Toad Gear are special version exclusive Armors, and are unlocked after finding the Curious Map and defeating Kratos and the Battletoads, respectively.
