While bear arms do not literally give the wearer the strength of a bear, they do improve the wearers combat skills in two ways.
First, the arms do include a nasty set of bear claws, which increase damage for each attack. The second combat advantage is that wearing the arms will make the hero feel larger and tougher than he really is, due to being made to feel like a bear. Frequently, the hero will growl and snarl in an ursine manner.
Spurred on by the feeling of having tapped into the power of the bear, the ferocity of his attacks increases, and causes fear (or derisive laughter) in the opponent. The original pair of bear arms were owned by a hero in the days of yore, his name lost to history. This original set was so renowned, it was mentioned in the Godville Constitution, noting the curious fact that this set of bear arms had no left arm.
