The magical skirt is a recurring piece of clothing in the Dragon Quest franchise which first appeared in Dragon Quest VI. Designed for women, it protects against magical attacks.


Dragon Quest III[edit]

The magical skirt has a defence bonus of +25 and can be equipped by any class as long as they are female and reduces magical damage by 25%. It can be purchased for 1,500 gold at Theddon and a shop on the second Treasures n' Trapdoors track and 3,000 gold at Asham by haggling. One can also be found on the fourth floor of the Pyramid, hidden behind a door locked by the Magic Key and another in a treasure chest on the third Treasures n' Trapdoors track near the Shrine of Shackles. It only appears in remake versions of the game.

Dragon Quest IV[edit]

Appearing only in the remakes, the magical skirt has a defence bonus of +45 and reduces all magical damage (save for zap) by 33.3%. It can only be worn by female characters. It can be bought at the Pioneer Town once it upgrades to a castle, at the casino for 1000 coins. In the Nintendo DS and smartphone versions, the magical skirt can also be obtained as a prize from the Medal King for turning in 25 mini medals. It can be sold for 7350 gold.
