The princess's robe is a recurring garment in the Dragon Quest series that first appeared in Dragon Quest V. This regal gown for women was designed to protect against breath damage in its debut, but has since shifted focus to magical resistance. In later games, the robe also gave a boost to the wearer's spellcasting abilities, as well.

Appearing exclusively in smartphone versions of the game, the princess's robe has a Defence bonus of 67 and reduces damage taken by fire and ice breath by 40 points.
