Golden Armor is one of Arthur's Hyper Combos. Arthur receives golden plating on his silver armor, extending his moveset and increasing his damage output. When the Hyper Combo ends, Arthur loses all of his armor and remains wearing only boxers. Golden Armor can also be done when in boxers, but only receives the default silver armor.
- The Golden Armor's helmet design changes in each of Arthur's alternate colors.
- This also happens with his boxers.
- This move is known as Armor Equip (ヨロイ装着 Yoroi Sōchaku) in the Japanese version of the game.
- Oddly, the armor Arthur equips when performing this move is not referred to as the Golden Armor in Ultimate Ghosts 'n Goblins, the game the armor's design comes from, it is instead known as the Emperor's Armor. The Golden Armor was featured in Ghouls 'n Ghosts and Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts, and features a different design.
