The gigant armour is a recurring suit of armour in the Dragon Quest series. It is a powerful set of armor reserved for only the strongest characters and it protects the wearer against fire and ice attacks.


The gigant armour is generally portrayed as a golden or copper-coloured suit of heavy armour composed of multiple plates, and in the 1995 official guidebook for VI it was shown to provide shin guards as well. Each of the shoulders contains a prominent spike. It is said to have been forged by giants.
