The Ancient Armor is armor rumored to have been worn by the gods. In newer games, it causes its wearer's health to be reduced by a certain percentage of their max HP regardless of the strength of the attack. This makes taking damage similar to old-style Castlevania games.

In Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance, it gives +45 DEF, which is 5 greater than Brigandine, but 3 less than Heavy Armor.

In Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, it makes it so that any attack received reduces Jonathan's health by 10%. It's dropped by Old Axe Armor.

In Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, it causes any attack received to reduce the health of the equipped character by 20%. It's dropped by Death in Hard Mode.
