Infernal armour

From Dragon Quest Wiki

An Infernal armour is a monster first featured in Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation.


Like the Restless armour, it is a mass of moving metal that has taken up its sword against humans, but if much more dangerous than its wandering counterpart. Formerly depicted as staunch lone wolves, they have learned to summon allies in battle like their contemporaries as of VIII, while even bringing the lightning with their swords.
