The full plate armour, also known as the steel armor, is a recurring suit of armour in the Dragon Quest series. This heavy suit of armour has a high defence value and it is typically reserved for characters with a large amount of physical strength.

Characteristics

The item art for the full plate armor consists of a breastplate with gold filigree details, pauldrons, and attached faulds, all made out of forged steel plates. In character art, the full plate armour often includes cuisses (thigh armour), gauntlets, boots, and a helmet. It is often the standard armour worn by knights and as such, can typically only be equipped by the most physically powerful characters. It has appeared in every main entry in the series so far.
