Interestingly it is a fallacy that it is hard to get up in a suit of plate armour. watching demonstration fights at the Royal Armouries in Leeds UK (where the guys were wearing real plate armour) they could get back to their feet just as quickly as I could.
It was surprising to see, and very noisy(!) but it demonstrated that the articulation and design of their plate armour wasn't a hindrance to their mobility.
I'll violate a basic rule of internet discourse and admit I am full of poo.
How about the possibility that a thief with a long knife would have a chance against a man so armored?
