"Urghh... Enough... I yield! That really hurt. What did you have to go and do that for? Here, take this Dragon Potion and leave me alone! Drink it when you need it - it gives you armour that is impervious to heat, plus it lets you breathe fire. Now go away!"
Mean Old Dragon, after being defeated.

The Dragon Armour, or Dragon Potion, was an artifact that imbued the wearer with immunity against fire, as well as the power to breathe it.



It is said that the armour was forged by Dragons from an age long ago. It ended up in the possession of the dragon who took up residence in the Crystal Caves.

Some sources indicate the dragon lived on Dragon Island instead, and that the armour was fashioned out of the dragon's own mother.

Sir Dan summoned the dragon using two Dragon Gems. After a short battle, the dragon relented and gave Dan the armour. Dan used the armour to get past the Dragon Gate in the Gallows Gauntlet.


Once it is activated, Daniel's appearance alters slightly to that of a dragon, while he also gains resistance against fire and the ability to breathe it.

MediEvil (1998 original)

The Armour is required to pass through the Dragon Gate in the Gallows Gauntlet. Wearing the Armour in the Japanese version slowly depletes Daniel's health. It is possible for Dan to die from this effect even during intermissions.

MediEvil: Resurrection

The Dragon Armour is obtained from Dragon Island. It can be used in Dan's Crypt to obtain Chicken Drumsticks found by going into the lava flowing through one of the rooms, Inside The Asylum to reach the chalice, and Haunted Ruins to progress further into the game.


"This fabled combat suit is fashioned from the finest dragon scales, its stylish lines making even the most handsome of knights considerably more dashing and debonair. More importantly perhaps, it grants the wearer total protection from heat, and offers up the enviable ability to breathe a plume of deathly fire at disagreeable types."

MediEvil (2019 remake)

The Armour is required to pass through the Dragon Gate in the Gallows Gauntlet.

Behind the scenes


The original Dragon Potion model.

The Dragon Potion would have originally transformed Dan into Dragon Dan instead of providing him with the Dragon Armour. The early model for the potion consisted of a red bottle with a dragon's tail and head coming out of it. It appears in the MediEvil Rolling Demo, only accessible in-game through hacking.[1] The potion's model in the final game was once the Serpent Potion, which would have summoned Kul Katura the Serpent Lord after being picked up.

While the potion would have likely appeared in the environment like other potions in the Rolling Demo, a different method of obtaining it was considered before the development team settled on the dragon. According to the notes of Jason Wilson, the game's designer, the potion would have once been obtained in the Pools Of The Ancient Dead level. Dan would have had to defeat a huge undead knight in order to obtain it.[2]
