The hate mail, also known as the Armor of Hades, is a recurring set of armour in the Dragon Quest series. It appears to be made out of the corpse and bones of a demon and often boasts a high amount of defense, but it is a cursed piece of equipment, having a chance to paralyze the wearer.

It is stated in Infernal armours' bestiary descriptions in Dragon Quest X and Dragon Quest XI that people who wear the hate mail will be turned into those monsters. Interestingly, the hate mail armour never makes a physical appearance in the games themselves.


Dragon Quest III[edit]

The hate mail has a defence bonus of +65 and reduces magic damage taken by 75%, but it has a one-in-three chance to paralyze the wearer. It can be equipped by both the Hero and Warriors, and can sold for 5,250 gold coins. It is found in the Mountain Cave.

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

The hate mail has a defence bonus of +65 and a style bonus of +15, but it has a chance of randomly paralyzing the wearer in battle. It can be equipped by the Hero and Aishe. It also reduces damage taken from magic and ice attacks. One set can be found in the Nottagen Cave. Hate mail can also be won as prizes from the Lucky Panel at Buccanham's Casino.
