Armored Carps are a type of Fish found in bodies of freshwater throughout Hyrule Kingdom. Large deposits of calcium within their scales cause their scales to be as hard as armor.[1] Because of this, cooking them into a dish will grant the consumer a boosted defense.[1] Armored can be caught by Link. Once caught, they can be eaten raw to restore one Heart worth of health, or they can be cooked into Roasted Carp or frozen into Frozen Carp.

Like other fish, Armored Carp can be cooked in a Cooking Pot to make a Fish Skewer, a Fish and Mushroom Skewer, and Salt-Grilled Fish. They also count as seafood when making Fish Pie, Creamy Seafood Soup, Copious Fish Skewers, Glazed Seafood, Gourmet Meat and Seafood Fry, Meat and Seafood Fry, Monster Stew, Pepper Seafood, Prime Meat and Seafood Fry, Seafood Meunière, Seafood Rice Balls, and Steamed Fish.
