The Battle Gloves (ソーングラブ, Thorn Glove?) are a Glove-class piece of armor found in Golden Sun. Visually, the Battle Gloves resembles a gray glove with a spiked fist.

Basic Description by Game[edit]

Battle Gloves increase the wearer's base Defense by 26 points and increase the wearer's base Attack rating by 8 points. It is bought for 2100 coins while its resale value is 1575.

In Golden Sun, it is acquired randomly as a prize from Tolbi's Lucky Medal Fountain. It can be transferred to Golden Sun: The Lost Age, in a password-enhanced game, but otherwise makes no appearance. As a glove, it can be worn by all Adepts.


This may seem to be one of the less impressive Artifacts one can find in the series, and one of the less impressive prizes from Tolbi Spring. In point of fact, it may be less desirable to wear than the Earth Shield that can also be won at the spring (which is reflected in the fact that the Earth Shield is worth nearly twice as many coins). It is extremely similar to the Vambrace which can be found earlier in the game in the optional Vault Cave dungeon, because the Vambrace features 27 defense and 5 additional attack, and the Vambrace is more of a clear addition to the party's armor collection at that point in the game. If the player gains both Battle Gloves and the Vambrace in a game of Golden Sun, the difference in stats is negligible enough that the Battle Gloves may as well be sold, because it is worth 225 coins more than the Vambrace. Both of these gloves have a superior, later counterpart in the War Gloves that can be bought in Lalivero, but none of these three gloves can compare to the amazing stats of The Lost Age's Riot Gloves.
