|Examine||The colours represent crest.|
A Heraldic helmet is a decorative Steel or Rune full helm. Players can paint them on a Pluming stand, Shield easel, or Banner easel in a Player-owned house if they have level 38 Crafting or higher and have been assigned a crest by Sir Renitee in the White Knights' Castle. Sir Renitee will not assign a crest unless the player has over level 16 Construction. A player's first crest assignment is free, and it costs 5k to change your crest to another one, however some crests have other requirements, detailed below. Players can use a Pluming stand in another player's house if they do not have one in theirs. The helmets have exactly the same stats as their Steel or Rune counterparts. They are untradeable and the paint cannot be removed.
Note: The Saradomin and Zamorak heraldic helmets will NOT offer protection in the God Wars Dungeon as they are made by the player, not blessed or 'recognised' by the gods.

- Interestingly (and to some: frustratingly), the Guthix, Saradomin and Zamorak Painted heraldic Helmets, Kiteshields, and Banners do not correspond with the Full Rune armour sets that can be retrieved from Treasure Trails. They do however, seem to match the God Capes from the Mage Arena.
- Since there are now Full Helmets and Kiteshields (that do not always fit with an existing armour type), it's more than reasonable to expect full sets of heraldic (melee) armour to be designed - or already in the process.
- At one time you could look almost exactly like a Black Knight by wearing the Zamorak Heraldic helm and full black, with no shield and a black longsword, although it was recommended that you also add Mime boots and a pair of Culinaromancer's gloves 5.
- The "Money" painted helm once seemed to resemble a gold trimmed Bronze full helmet, which is interesting because Bronze is the cheapest melee armour there is, while "Money" would suggest otherwise.
- The Varrock helm possesses a similar appearance and equal stats (if a rune full helm is used) to the Gilded full helmet, but with a far lower price. In fact at one point the Varrock helm and the Gilded full helm were almost identical as the Varrock helm used to have a light gold feather instead of a black one.
- The examine information of the Horse heraldic helmet is in reference to a running gag in RuneScape in which horses are said not to exist. This gag started with the 2004 April Fools event.
- After the March 6 armour updates, the helmets retained the same appearance as before the update, despite them just being painted steel or rune helmets.
