Genji Armor FFII Art

Artwork from Final Fantasy II.

This suit of armor from a faraway land is truly one-of-a-kind.

Genji Armor (源氏の鎧, Genji no Yoroi?), also known as Genji and Samurai, is a recurring suit of heavy armor in the series. It is usually high-ranked armor that provides excellent defenses, only being beaten out by a small amount of suits of armor, and is generally extremely rare with only a few copies existing in each game. Oftentimes, only one can be obtained, being dropped or stolen from Gilgamesh.

EtymologyEdit

The word genji has a variety of historical significances in Japanese culture. The Minamoto Clan was also called the Genji Clan, and Minamoto was a surname commonly bestowed on the children of the Emperor that were not eligible for the throne. A book titled The Tale of Genji also exists, often considered the first novel, which follows royal figures. Genji is also a short period in Japanese history, lasting only a single year from 1864-1865.

Benkei is said to have posted himself at Gojō Bridge in Kyoto, where he disarmed every passing swordsman, eventually collecting 999 swords. On his 1000th duel, Benkei was defeated by Minamoto no Yoshitsune, a son of the warlord Minamoto no Yoshitomo. Benkei is wellknown for wearing heavy armor while he was with Minamoto no Yoshitomo.
