The Monarchic mark is a recurring accessory in the Dragon Quest series.

It gives a boost to the wearer's Defence and spellcasting attributes.


The Monarchic mark is a golden badge in the shape of an escutcheon featuring a coat of arms quartered blue and white. On the upper left, there is a golden downward-pointing sword and on the upper right, there is a golden trident-shaped cross that has been featured on many religious designs throughout the series.
