Armor Hero (铠甲勇士 Kǎijiǎ Yǒngshì) aka Armor Hero: Legend of Light and Shadow (铠甲勇士之光影传奇 Kǎijiǎ Yǒngshì: Zhīguāng Yǐngchuán Qí) is a Chinese tokusatsu drama series. It is the first entry of the Armor Hero Series.


Xing Nan, Bei Miao, Dong Shan, Xi Zhao, and Kun Zhong are the descendants of the Fire village, the Water village, the Wood village, the Gold village, and the Earth village respectively. Their bodies contain a mysterious gene. With the power of the Guang Ying Shi ("Light-Shadow Stone") crystals, they are endowed with magical Powered Armor, heirlooms from ancient times.

Bearing such a mighty panoply, these five young men become the embodiment of righteousness: Yan Long Xia the Fire Dragon Hero, Hei Xi Xia the Black Rhinoceros Hero, Feng Ying Xia the Sky Eagle Hero, Xue Ao Xia the Snow Mastiff Hero, and Di Hu Xia the Earth Tiger Hero. As armored heroes, they fight the evil plans and schemes of the Shadow Emperor and his minions.

The villains' plan is to disrupt the happiness of the community by using pollutants to make pollution monsters that harm the environment and the community's peace. Through their hard work of beating monsters up with a single finisher, the Armor Heroes achieve victory by sealing the fifty-two monsters in fifty-two magical stones and five large magical charms.
