Dragon equipment (ドラゴン, Doragon?), also known as Dragoon equipment, is a recurring type of equipment in the Final Fantasy series. It is often among the strongest equipment, with pieces whose defense is comparable to Genji or Crystal equipment, and usually cannot be purchased in shops.
As the name suggests, the equipment set is often related to Dragon-type enemies or the Dragoon character class. The equipment pieces usually resist Fire, Ice, and Lightning damage. The most common weapon of this set is the Dragon Whisker.

The Dragon Mail is the one of the strongest armor pieces, second only to the Crystal Mail and Genji Armor (which only exist in the GBA and later versions). The Mail grants the wearer resistance to Fire, Ice, and Lightning and is found in Mirage Tower.
The Dragon Armor is the second-strongest armor after Genji Armor, and the Dragon Shield is the second-strongest shield after the Aegis Shield. The two pieces provide the wearer resistance to elemental attacks. The Dragon Armor is found in Jade Passage and is dropped by General, Blue Dragon, Red Dragon, Chaos Rider and Black Dragon. Dragon Shield is dropped by Blue Dragon, Red Dragon and Black Dragon.
The Dragon Helmet and Dragon Mail are only mid-powered, the complete armor set can be obtained in Saronia's Dragon Tower. The pieces can be equipped by Freelancers, Onion Knights, or Dragoons. The Dragon Lance is a high-ranked spear that has an Attack of 117. It can be bought onboard the Invincible for 40,000 gil.
The Dragon Mail, Dragon Gloves, Dragon Helmet, and Dragon Shield are heavy equipment pieces usable by any party member that can equip heavy armor. They resist Fire, Ice, and Lightning, and in the original release are the strongest heavy equipment after Cecil's Crystal equipment.
They were originally translated as "Dragoon" equipment. In the Advance and Complete Collection releases, the Dragoon Plate and the Dragoon Gloves, obtained at the Lunar Ruins, are exclusive to Kain. The Dragoon Plate is the strongest armor for him, and the Dragoon Gloves upgrade his Jump ability to Double Jump.
The Dragon's Whisker is a powerful whip for Rydia that deals great damage when used against Dragons, as well as granting +5 Strength, Stamina, and Agility. The weapon is bugged in the North American and original Japanese releases because it doesn't inflict critical damage against Dragons or have the Holy element. The bug was fixed in the second Japanese release and the European port.
The Wyvern Lance is a powerful spear for Kain that also inflicts critical damage against Dragons and can drop from powerful Dragon enemies. The Dragon Claws, only available in the Advance and Complete Collection versions, is a Holy-elemental weapon for Yang that grants +10 Strength and Spirit and also inflicts critical damage against Dragons.
The Dragon equipment from Final Fantasy IV returns with the same statistics.
The Dragon Lance is a powerful lance obtained late in the game, and deals double damage to Dragon enemies. The Dragon Beard is the most powerful whip, stolen from Shinryu and dropped from Stingray. It is a long-range whip with an Attack of 89.
The Dragon Armlet has six linked Materia slots and resists Fire, Ice, and Lightning. Its defensive stats are high, but not exceptionally strong. It can drop from Blue Dragons and Red Dragons, and be stolen from Dark Dragons.
The Dragon Armlet is an accessory that resists Fire, Ice, and Lightning, and also increases max MP by 40%.
There are at least two sets of crafted "Dragon" armor, one is a job-specific armor set for Thieves, while the other is a job-specific armor set for Dragoons. A related armor set is the Hydra Scale armor, made from the scales of the fearsome Hydra.
The Dragoon's Mythic Weapon is the Ryunohige (Dragon's Whisker).
The Dragon Whisker is the second strongest spear, granting 91 to Attack power and 8 in Evasion.
