Silver cape

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Silver cape (Aka Silver Swordsman) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest X.

It is a powerful variant of the Phantom fencer.


The Silver cape is a spirit that consists of a long, ragged silver cloak holding a rusty blue-grey greatsword. It is capable of unleashing powerful techniques in battle such as Falcon Slash and Lightning Storm, as well as blocking enemy attacks with their swords either via a stroke of luck or increasing their chances making it a formidable opponent.

  • In the story scenes for "Lifelong-Performer Silver Cape", it introduces itself to Mindini and Majellan as SilvrCape. This is a reference to the text restrictions that existed in earlier localized games, which meant that monsters and item names had to be shortened in order to fit 9 letters. Ironically, the Silver cape itself is a relatively new monster in the series.
