Plain clothes are a common piece of equipment in nearly every installment of the Dragon Quest series. They are usually the least protective piece of equipment in the game. Even so, they are certainly better than wearing nothing and it does lessen the damage inflicted by the enemy, especially at the start of a game.

Characteristics[edit]

The plain clothes consist of a light yellow or beige tunic made of thick cloth and secured only with a blue belt around the waist. In earlier entries in the series, the Plain clothes also included of a pair of trousers as well, even though there was no separate item slot for leg equipment. Plain clothes can be commonly found in the dressers and cupboards of villagers' homes in practically every game. Many of the characters throughout the series start their adventure with nothing more than the Plain clothes on their back.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest[edit]

Due to text restrictions in the Game Boy Color remake of Dragon Quest, the Plain clothes are simply known as Cloth with a symbol of armor besides it.
