Effect Increases wielder's defence, in some games protects against status effects.

The Liquid metal helm is a recurring helmet in the Dragon Quest series. It is a high-level helmet that is typically one of the most protective pieces of headwear in the game and occasionally confers protection against status effects to the wearer. It features an emblem of a Liquid metal slime on the front.


Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen[edit]

NES version: In the Dragon Warrior IV NES version you can obtain one Metal Babble Helm by trading in 20 mini medals to the Medal King for one Metal Babble Helm. It can be worn by Male Hero, Female Hero, Cristo, Taloon, Ragnar.

Nintendo DS, Android, iOS version: The Liquid metal helm has a defence bonus of +50, and protects against confusion, paralysis, and sleep. It can be worn by Male Hero, Female Hero, Torneko, Ragnar, Kiryl, Meena. It is obtained from the casino for 100,000 in the immigrant town or from a Metal king slime either by winning it or by Torneko randomly stealing one. It's best to have the Sands of Time item and enter a battle with Metal king slime with another monster who won't run away. Also have everybody defend except for Torneko who will randomly steal a Liquid metal helm. If the Metal king slime runs away or Torneko accidentally kills one, use the Sands of Time to bring the Metal king slime back to the battle. It is much harder to buy the expensive Liquid metal helm as you'll have to gamble at the monster arena for many hours and it's much quicker to randomly steal one from Metal king slime.
