The statement this armor makes: You are one of the least appreciated protagonists in the entirety of the Castlevania franchise. You're a werewolf with a flair for the elaborate, choosing only the most ornate armor to defend your body. Despite having the capacity to tear your opponent into shreds, you're still man enough to wear a skirt. And, like every wolfperson of Japanese origin, you are an adept master of the martial arts.
Should you wear it in a fight? Only if you are, in fact, a werewolf. "If it's trying to fit a human body, he would have some major function issues," says Johnson. "You've got those big fins up by the head, which is riding down lower to the chest than a human's would be." Even if you could squeeze into this armor, your fighting style would be reduced to a clownish display of self-inflicted injury. "With those spiked bands around the forearms, you would end up skewering yourself in some way, shape, or form," says Johnson, "not to mention, you couldn't have your arms by your sides." And don't even get me started on those metal claws. As Johnson observes, your fingers can't possibly lift those gigantic blades covering your hands.
