The four Champion amiibo can each be scanned to randomly produce ancient head-pieces corresponding to their Divine Beast. Each of the helms can replace the Ancient Helm to provide both Guardian Resist Up and Ancient Proficiency (when upgraded) bonuses. They each provide other extra bonuses related to the Divine Beast they represent.

The items in this set can be upgraded by a Great Fairy Fountain and cost Monster Parts to upgrade. Enhancing items requires that you have unlocked as many fountains as the desired star-level. Upgrading each least twice gains 1/3 towards the Ancient Proficiency bonus which increase the damage dealt against Guardians and increases damage from all ancient weapons by 80%.

The collective strength of the armor sums up to 84, which is among the highest in the base game alongside the Wild Set and the Soldier's Set, but the latter of the two offers no bonuses.
