The Magic armor is a recurring suit of armor in the Dragon Quest series. As its name suggests, it is designed to guard the wearer against magical onslaughts.
The magic armor consists of a blue breastplate with curved pauldrons and ornate gold filigree and edges, along with a dark orange fauld with gold edges that fully encircles the wearer's waist attached to a gold belt. In earlier depictions, the magic armor is seen worn with a long cape and blue vambraces with the same design as the breastplate, and has a jewel on the belt. It is not as heavy as some other suits of armor, allowing it to be used by a wider range of characters, including some spellcasters.
In this entry, the magic armor will slowly restore the wearer's HP when walking in the overworld. It will also reduce the damage taken from Sizz spells by one third.
