Armor are collectible items in The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon. They are found in silver chests hidden throughout the game. In order to open the chests, you need both Spyro and Cynder to open them. Equipping the armor will improve both dragon's breath attacks and skills, and can also be worn on the characters. Both dragons can collect nine pieces each. The armor are also quite hard to find sometimes and require specific searching to find them.

Three different kinds of armor are found throughout Dawn of the Dragon:

  • Bracers
  • Tail Armor
  • Helmets

Certain armor does certain things. For example, one of the tail armor pieces for Cynder will wound enemies that attack her.
