The Equipment template is used to display information for various pieces of equipment in Dragon Quest games. This template covers all types of equipment (weapons, armor, shields, helmets, accessories). This template describes a single piece of equipment for a single game.


In almost all cases, using this template should be preceded by a heading of the game it comes from. This is because the template only covers a single item in a single game. Each game, therefore, should have its own instance of this template.


A header call to this template should be the first usage of this template on any page.

  • header: A required parameter which marks this as the start of a equipment table.
  • console: An optional parameter for specifying the console version of the game the equipment appears in.
  • name: The name of the equipment. This should be the localization name used in the game in which this piece of equipment appears.
  • image: if there is an image of this piece of equipment, it should be included here. Note this is the filename only, not a link to the image.


An entry call is made to designate equipment data for a specific console. Note that pieces of equipment that have the exact same attributes across different consoles can be described in the same entry.

  • stat: A required parameter marking a stat entry.
  • name: The name of the stat being modified by the equipment
  • modifier: The value (+/-) the stat is being modified. Should include a + or - in front of the value.


The footer call marks the end of the equipment table.
