Inspiration: Golden Knight Garo
You could make him a villain though: one-shot lieutenant humanoid beast in armor (perhaps a leveled-up hobgoblin, or one in magical armor depending on your flavor of D&D).
Listen to this series summary though:
Garo focuses on the life of Kouga Saejima, who has assumed the title of Makai Knight to protect humanity against dark demonic manifestations called "Horrors." In his quest to purge them, he encounters a young girl named Kaoru whom he saves from a Horror, but who is stained with its demonic blood. As a rule, those that have been stained by the blood of a Horror shall be cut down, or else they will die painfully in approximately 100 days. Kouga spares Kaoru and tries to find a way to purify her before her remaining time expires.
Could be a rationale to have high-powered adventurers running around a fantasy world for a limited run campaign. A real 'wahoo' type of team, but with serious opposition and recurring characters as well. Or just run it as a modern day super-hero campaign, with very limited sources of power special effects.
