DQVIII - Magic armor
Japanese name まほうのよろい
Rōmaji Ma hō no yoroi
Introduced in Dragon Quest

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.

Characteristics

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.
