Head armor in Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age belong to three general classes which distinguish themselves by which individual Adepts can equip them. The pieces of armor listed here belong to the Helm class of head armor, and as such they are generally equippable by the warrior-style Adepts in each game: Isaac and Garet in the first game and Felix and Piers in the second.

All helms that are counted as "common" are helms that can be bought in unlimited quantities in an armor vendor's Buy menu and are sold without event. All helms that are counted as Artifacts are special, stronger helms that do not appear in the Buy menu. These are bought and sold individually and usually are unique, and if one appears in the Artifacts menu of a town's vendor that one helm can be bought by itself and then be sold by itself anytime afterwards to reappear in the Artifacts menu. The vendor shopkeeper will specifically remark about how rare a find your Artifact is whenever you specifically sell one.

The prices the games assign to each helm are quite reliable indicators of how good each helm is as they measure against each other in actual battle. A helm that is priced higher than another is generally superior to that other helm even if the other helm has a higher physical defense rating than the more expensive helm. Therefore, the following helms are all arranged by price.
