Appearances[edit | edit source]
Armor of adamantite.
Adamant Armor is the strongest armor only obtained if the player brings a Pink Tail to the Tail Collector at Adamant Isle Grotto. It provides 100 Defense, 20 Magic Defense, 12 Magic Evasion, resistance to Fire, Ice, Lightning, Poison, Blind, Silence, Pig, Mini, Toad, Petrify, Death, Gradual Petrify, Confuse, Sleep, Paralyze, Float, and Curse. It also gives +15 to Strength, Stamina, Agility, Intelligence, and Spirit. It can be equipped by everyone except Dark Knight Cecil.
In the 3D remakes, Adamant Armor is still the best armor, providing 100 Defense and Magic Defense, 30 Evasion and Magic Evasion, +15 Strength/Stamina/Agility/Intelligence/Spirit, resistance towards all elements, and resistance to all statuses except Berserk, Sap, Slow, Doom, and Critical. Once again, only Dark Knight Cecil cannot equip it.
The Adamant Armor apparently plays around with some extended flags in the SNES version, and removing the Adamant Armor after having it equipped on a character once will make that character very weak (4x damage taken) to Fire, Ice, and Lightning elements. If the player manage to get this armor, they should equip it to a character and never remove it.
Adamant Armor is a high-ranked armor, providing 50 Defense, 20 Magic Defense, -10% Evasion, 12% Magic Evasion, resistance towards Fire-elemental attacks, Petrify, Pig, and Poison, and +5 to all stats. It can be obtained only by trading Adamantite x3, and can be equipped by everyone except Calca and Brina.

The ultimate in full-body armor made by an elite craftsman who spent three years on this masterpiece, made of a special piece of carapace from an adamantite shell only found on the female of the species. The shell is further hardened by curing it in empress honey for half a year. The only drawback is the sweet smell, which attracts bees and bears.
