Bone Mail in Final Fantasy V.

Armor fit for a corpse!
—Description, Final Fantasy V.

Bone Mail (ボーンメイル, Bōn Meiru?) is a recurring powerful armor in the series. It often provides extremely high defenses, but at the price of making the user undead and vulnerable to Cure magic. It is also oftentimes found in the middle of the game.


Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

FFIVTAY Bone Mail is a powerful armor and can be bought during the last Chapter in Baron for 37,500 gil. It provides 18 Defense, 72 Magic Defense, 1% Magic Evasion, -10% Evasion, and prevents Poison. It also strengthens defense against attacks from undead enemies.

Final Fantasy VEdit

V Bone Mail is the strongest armor, defensively speaking. It provides a whopping 30 Defense, +10 more than Vishnu Vest, as well as making the user immune to instant death, Poison, Blind, Old, Confuse, and Berserk, and absorbing the Poison element and halving Ice-elemental attacks.

However, the downside to equipping the armor is that the user is also immune to Regen as well as being weak to Fire and Holy-elemental attacks, giving -5 Stamina, and once the user is KO'd in battle, they cannot be revived during the fight. Therefore it is advised to equip the Bone Mail with caution.

It can be found in Drakenvale, dropped from Hades or stolen from Necromancer (rare).

Final Fantasy XIIEdit

XII Bone Mail is a mid-ranked armor that provides 34 Defense and +6 Strength, as well as halving Dark-elemental damage, but makes the user weak to Holy-elemental attacks. It requires 40 LP and the Heavy Armor 5 license to use. It can be bought from Rabanastre or Nalbina Fortress after defeating Judge Bergan at Mt Bur-Omisace for 5900 gil.

In the International Zodiac Job System version, Bone Mail can be equipped by Uhlan, Knight, Time Mage, and Breaker.

Dissidia Final FantasyEdit

Dissidia The Bone Mail is one of the strongest pieces of heavy armor. It is a level 100 piece that raises HP by 2,973. However, it prevents the absorption of EX Force and EX Cores. It can be obtained from the shop by trading Scorpio Recipe, a Wild Rose, a GF Eden, and 24,390 gil.

Final Fantasy Record KeeperEdit

FFRK The Bone Mail (V) is a 2-star rarity Heavy Armor. Unlike other appearances, this Bone Mail has no special properties.
