The Glide Armor (グライドアーマー)[2] is a set of Armor Parts obtained from the Light Capsules in Mega Man X7.

In the Games

Mega Man X7

The Glide Armor debuted in Mega Man X7. It is most notable for its Glide ability and for returning the Giga Crash. In lore, its design is based on the Normal Armor (the Armor Parts from Mega Man X to Mega Man X4).[2] It can be equipped one piece at a time, unlike the Armor Parts in the previous two games.

Air Forces Reduces all damage received by 50% and nullifies knockdown, and grants X the Giga Crash. Taking damage from enemy attacks fills its Weapon Energy; once the gauge is full, X can use the Giga Crash to damage all enemies on the screen.

Lava Factory Upgrades X's Charge Shot MAX, adding three additional homing shots on either side of the Charge Shot. It also increases the X-Buster's range, and X can charge Special Weapons.
Feet Parts

Deep Forest Grants X the Glide; by pressing Jump while midair, he can glide through the air. It is slower than an Air Dash or Hover, but can travel across much longer distances.

Behind the Scenes

Developer Commentary

"When this armor was first applied, it looked rough, so I tried to create a more sharp and slender structure. I had a surprisingly difficult time trying to create a three-dimensional V shape while making the vertical lines look thinner." - (Concept Art Room)[3]
