The iron armour, also known as the half plate or half plate armor, is a recurring suit of armour in the Dragon Quest series. It is a strong piece of armor made from beaten out iron plates.
The iron armour consists of a breastplate, pauldrons, and faulds made out of beaten iron plates. The armour is grey with gold edges and the pieces are attached with a series of brown leather belts. In character art, the iron armour often includes a pair of sabatons (boots) made out of iron, as well. It is the standard equipment of castle guards. Because of its weight, its usage is typically restricted to physically stronger characters. It has appeared in every main entry in the series except for Dragon Quest II.
Half Plate (Iron Armor in later translations) can be bought in Garinham, Kol and Rimuldar for 1000 G. The wearer gains +16 defense when equipped. Due to text restrictions in the Gameboy Color remake of Dragon Quest, Iron Armor was renamed to Iron with a picture of armor beside it.

Iron armour's original localized names, half plate and half plate armor, are derived from the armor of the same name from the tabletop game Dungeons & Dragons. The half plate is described as having shaped metal plates which cover most of the wearer's body except for the legs, much like the iron armour in the Dragon Quest series.
