The dragon robe is a recurring robe in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation. It is a truly incredible garment made from a dragon's scales and bones. The robe usually protects the wearer against fire and ice attacks and is often among the strongest protection for those who cannot don heavy armour.

The modern dragon robe is a flowing, verdant garment with puffy white sleeves. The skull of a dragon adorns the chest area along with a shoulder and neck guard. The original design seen only in the official guide book for the Super Famicom version of VI depicts something akin to an armored dress, with a breast guard made of green dragon scales with green dragon skulls for pauldrons, set over a high-collar yellow gown with a red cloth wrapped around the hip.

In the GBC and SNES versions, dragon robes can be purchased from the fourth Pachisi track in Kol or randomly found in the fifth Pachisi track.

Interestingly, vintage art for the robe depicts it as a dress despite male characters being able to wear it. Considering the robe was redesigned as early as the 1996 remake of DQIII, it is likely the feminine form was an oversight by Toriyama.
