Effect Cursed item that reduces the HP of the wearer whenever they walk forward.

The zombie mail is a recurring suit of armor in the Dragon Quest series. It is a mid-level piece of armor, but it is a cursed item. When it is equipped, it will continuously reduce the wearer's HP while walking.


Dragon Quest IV[edit]

The zombie mail has a defence bonus of +49... but it reduces the wearer's HP by 1 per step when walking outside of battle. In the original NES version, the wearer's HP would decrease until it reaches 0, but in remake version, the wearer's HP will stop at 1. It can be equipped by the Hero, Ragnar, and Psaro. Psaro joins the party with it equipped, as he can use cursed equipment without penalty.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

The zombie mail has a defence bonus of +38. It can only be equipped by certain monster companions.

Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

The zombie mail has a defence bonus of +42 and can be equipped by Angelo and Morrie. One set can be found on the island in the northwest where the Dark Ruins are located. It can be purified in the Alchemy Pot into a Platinum mail with the use of Saint's ashes. Zombie mail can also be made in the Alchemy Pot, as well. They are dropped rarely by Dark dullahans.

Recipe: Platinum mail + Devil's tail or Silver mail + Zombiesbane
