The Zenithian Equipment is a set of critical items in Dragon Quest IV and Dragon Quest V. Only the chosen legendary hero can equip them.

Dragon Quest IV

Zenithian Armour

The Armour is likely the first piece to be acquired; it is found in the cave north of the Medal King's Palace.

Zenithian Helm

The Helm is found in Canalot, in its king's possession. He holds a competition stipulating that anyone who can make him laugh will win the Helm. The party travels to Laissez Fayre to recruit comedian Tom Foolery to the cause, expecting him to unleash one of his funniest jokes on the king; instead, he delivers an impassioned speech about evil on the rise and then necessity of the Chosen to defeat it. The king is convinced and gives up the Helm.

Zenithian Shield

On a tip from a poet in Canalot, the party heads to Burland, only to find that the king gave it away to the queen of Femiscyra (a beautiful woman) many years ago. They travel to a small kingdom east of Burland, however, and after being accused of robbery, they are tasked with finding the real criminal if they want to clear their names. They successfully track down the real robber, clear their names, and are rewarded with the Shield for their hard work.

Zenithian Sword

After acquiring the balloon and traveling to the World Tree, they find a fallen Zenithian named Orifiela, who points them to the Sword.

Dragon Quest IV

Zenithian Sword

The sword was already located by Pankraz sometime before the start of the game. He left it in a cache in the Whealbrook ADit, which his son later recovered.

Zenithian Shield

The shield came into the possession of Rodrigo Briscoletti, who is willing to give it to any suitor that takes his daughter Nera's hand in marriage. Regardless of whom ends up being chosen as the bride, though, Mr. Brisccoletti gives the hero the shield.

Zenithian Helm

The helm is being kept in a vault at Helmunaptra by Queen Cleohatra, who is awaiting the arrival of the legendary hero.

Zenithian Armour

The armour is stored in a side room at Crocodilopolis. The Ultimate Key is needed to retrieve it.

Other Appearances

Dragon Quest IX

Several pieces of "Zenithian" gear exist as rewards from legacy bosses, however these are costumes of both the male and female versions of the Chosen Hero of Dragon Quest IV, and are appropriately gender restricted (except for the helm and gauntlets, which are unisex):
