Restless armour

From Dragon Quest Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Restless Armour (formerly Rogue Knight & RogueNite / Rogue Nite in later translations due to display constraints) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest III, it is an empty suit of armor that has taken on life.

Characteristics[edit]

Restless Armours are simple blue suits of armor armed with a sword and shield. There is nothing inside the armor, though the darkness inside their orange tasseled helmets makes this a questionable matter at times.

Typically a physical force, Restless Armours will strike with their swords and occasionally deliver critical blows, regularly depicted as a full-force swing after the Restless Armor's upper body winds back at the waist. While usually without magical abilities, they can often call Healslimes into the battle to undo any damage they took.

Restless Armours have been shown to speak with a degree of nobility to their words, as one might expect of a knight. Their speech also tends to be interrupted by sudden 'clank!'s, possibly from their visors falling down or maybe simply due to their being nothing but armor.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker[edit]

Appearing as rank C monsters of the zombie family, Restless Armours can be scouted on Celeste Isle and within the temple on that island, though synthesis is also an option.

Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime[edit]

Restless Armours first appear and can only be found in the game's final area, the Flying Clawtress. They can use their shields to block frontal attacks, though being struck once from behind will cause them to drop it and lose their defensive prowess. A Restless Armour defeated outside of a tank battle will always drop a steel broadsword if a lucky bag isn't produced.
