Dueling Mask (デュエルマスク, Dyueru Masuku?) is a recurring piece of equipment in the series. It is oftentimes one of the stronger helmets in the game, but has on occasions been an accessory as well.

It can be found in the Dragons' Den, and won in the Dragon's Neck Coliseum by betting a Bone Wrist and defeating a Duel Armor. Likewise, betting the Dueling Mask will net the player a Bone Wrist after defeating a Daedalus.

There is a treasure at 35F with a 70% chance to spawn, but to obtain it, the player must return to previous floors and defeat three red Deidars to create a red bridge to the chest. The chest has a 100% chance of containing a Dueling Mask (with or without the Diamond Armlet). Once claimed, the chest will never respawn.

At the Subterra Abyssal-South there is a 50% chance to spawn a chest that guarantees a Dueling Mask if Diamond Armlet is not equipped. Once claimed, the chest will never respawn.

In the Zodiac versions, it now provides 55 Magick Resist, +800 HP, +2 Strength, and requires the Light Armor 13 license unlocked with 110 LP. It can be found as a treasure in Henne Mines (Phase 2 Dig) or Cerobi Steppe (Crossfield), or from the Hunt Club sidequest. It can be equipped by the Machinist, Monk, Archer and Shikari.
