Armor level refers to whether or not you "flinch" from enemy attacks. If you notice in battle, whenever you get hit your character will "flinch" or jerk backwards.
While in this state you will be unable to perform any actions excpet Musou. The armor level of your character determines what attacks cause you to "flinch", and what attacks don't flinch you. There are 5 levels of Armor a character can achieve.
The default armor level for player characters is zero.
