    And how does a healing potion work? Red juice can make your open sores heal? And while we're at it why don't the cars in GTA ever run out of gas??

      The same way a werewolf transforms. It's magic. Try again.

    homie you need to make your way to the dragon. along the way there are the things that armour would help against.

      light armor still helps you leverage yourself against your environment better (smash, climb etc without cutting yourself) and get through marginal physical struggles (wriggling free as the giant grabs you between his forefinger and thumb through a crack, without getting squished; surviving a glancing hit from the dragon's tail). also that's probably the main one. you could also say, what's the point of a sword when you're fighting dragons lol. a dedicated dragon fighting force wouldn't aim to use swords or normal armor

    So that the dragon takes you more (or less, at his peril) seriously

    If something that weighs a few tonnes starts stamping about, kicking rocks and detritus around it probably a good idea to wear something to protect yourself.

      >a few tonnes
      That's like the weight of crocodiles
      You SEVERELY underestimate how strong the typically sized dragon and giant would be
      Consequently it would be "easy" to dance around them, but if you get hit, you're dead

    And a sword would probably be as effective on a giant as a toothpick on a human yet that's just how it works.

    What's the point of helmets when you're fighting tanks, AFVs, helicopters, etc.? How is it supposed to protect you?
    Hint. Its not just about that one thing, people who go outside interact with a world full of various objects all engaging simultaneously.

    Hey soldiers, your 'body armor' won't protect you against a direct hit from the gun of a main battle tank, so why bother wearing it at all?

    By making them fail their attack roll.

    What's the point of a sword when you're fighting dragons, giants, etc.? How are you supposed to damage a vital organ when they're deeper in the body than your sword is long?

      Because all the other cool dragon slayers did it with a sword.

      The heroes are superhuman. They can put enough force into a sword swing to tear the flesh of dragons and giants. Still doesn't explain why armor would protect them.

        The heros are superhuman. the armor simply supplements their already great resistance, making the difference between a claw sinking 1 or 2 inches into flesh.

        if you sitch a steal plate in front of a brick wall, even if the bullet goes through the brick wall will still be impacted with less total force.

    >in D&D-likes
    It's an abstraction of your ability of avoiding damage, so the point is for the character to get less damage.
    >in non-D&D-likes
    It's damage reduction, so the point is for the character to get less damage.
    >anime game
    here armor is completely pointless, since in anime armor comes from the plot and the rule of cool.

    It makes you -feel- safer. It's better to fight a dragon without your legs shaking intensely.

    It's fantasy you dumbass. Realistically, a typical fantasy dragon would swat a human knight or would be hero no matter their armor or level because its sheer mass and power is that much greater.

    The real question should be:
    Why does armor decrease your chance to be hit? It should work like how material hardness works, since logically doesn't make it easier to dodge attacks, but rather, absorbs attacks for you.

    My games don't have "normal armor", so I'm not sure how to answer your question.
