The top hat is a recurring hat in the Dragon Quest series which first appeared in Dragon Quest V. This formal headwear is reserved for men, and has become part of the default design for the Luminary vocation.


Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation[edit]

The top hat has a defence bonus of +20 and can only be equipped by male Merchants and Gadabouts. One can be found in a house at Greenlad and it can be sold for 900 gold, but it is not recommended to do so since there is only one in the game. It only appears in remake versions of the games.

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride[edit]

The top hat has a defence bonus of +20. It can be purchased for 2,000 gold in Mostroferrato, Helmunaptra, and the Ventuno Treasures n' Trapdoors shop and sold for 1,000 gold. It is equipped by Sancho when he joins the party and it can only be equipped by him and some of the monster companions. Top hats can also be dropped by Blizzybodies and Cross bones.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past[edit]

The top hat has a defence bonus of +17 and a style bonus of +15. It can only be equipped by the Hero and Sir Mervyn. It can be purchased in Gröndal in the present for 1,200 gold and sold for 600 gold.
