The way the Ratchet & Clank wiki capitalizes words has changed; therefore, this article should be checked, and, if necessary, capitalization should be fixed.
- “ Engineered by the Kerchu Phalanxes of Planet Jasindu, this powerful armor boasts three layers of cryofoam and duraplate omniguards for added protection. Absorbs up to 40% of all damage! ”
- ―GrummelNet's description about Helios Armor [ToD]
The Helios Armor was an armor engineered by the Kerchu Phalanxes of Planet Jasindu. It first became available for purchase on Rykan V for 100,000 bolts. The Helios Armor boasted three layers of cryofoam and duraplate omniguards for added protection, enabling the armor to absorb 40% of damage. This armor was much better that its predecessor, the Blackstar Armor, which possessed a damage reduction of only 25%.
The Helios Armor was a dirty yellow color with dark golden trim. It featured a helmet with a tinted visor, shoulder protection, shin guards, and metal reinforced gloves. A green chest plate with a gear symbol completed the armor's visual details. The only parts of Ratchet's body left exposed were his lower face, ears, and tail.
- The Helios Armor was very similar to the armor used by Kerchu Pyroguards, as the Helios Armor was Kerchu-engineered.
- "Helios" is possibly a reference the Greek god Helios, whose chariot of fire was thought to be the sun in ancient Greece.
- The armor bears a striking resemblance to Reactor.
