The feathered cap is a piece of headwear in the Dragon Quest series. Stylistically, official artwork shows that the feathered cap changed over the years by increasing the feather count from one to two.

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King[edit]

The feathered cap has a defence bonus of +9. It can be worn by everyone and Red joins the party with it equipped in the 3DS port. It can only be made in the Alchemy Pot. They can be sold for 200 gold.
