Plate armor

The Plate Armor in-game.

Plate Armor was the first armor set to be added to Minecraft. It was used to test the armor system. It gave no protection and looked similar to Iron Armor except the chestplate was shorter. Not much else is known about it.


  • Plate Armor is the only armor set to have two pieces, being the helmet and the chestplate.
  • This and the Studded Armor are the only armor sets that were removed.
