The Genji Gloves.

Gauntlets (ガントレット, Gantoretto?), also known as Gloves, are a recurring type of armguards in the Final Fantasy series. They can also appear as a type of accessory in some titles. Gauntlets grant Defense and physical bonuses, and can be considered the counterparts of armlets. They are often used by strong melee jobs, like the Warrior, the Samurai, and the Dragoon. The Thief Gloves are recurring gauntlets, and most armor sets include gauntlets.
