The Protect Ring (守りの指輪, Mamori no Yubiwa?), also known as Protector Ring and Ring of Renewal, is a recurring armor and accessory in the series. It can be classified either as a ring, or as an armlet. It usually defends against Instant Death or grants the user the status Auto-Protect.


Final FantasyEdit


Ring that guards against instant death.

The Protect Ring is an armlet that protects against Death-elemental attacks, has +8 Absorb, and -1% Evade. It can be bought for 16,000 gil at Gaia, or found in the Flying Fortress, and the Chaos Shrine (past).

Unlike what the description states, Protect Rings do not resist all instant KO attacks, only ones that are specifically Death-elemental (Death and Kill). Many instant KO spells and abilities, such as Earthquake and Break, require alternate resistance protection (Earth and Petrification, respectively).

Final Fantasy IIEdit


A ring affording protection against instant death.

The Protect Ring boosts Defense by 18 and protects against the element Death. It can be dropped from Lamia Queen, and found in Raqia.

Though the Protect Ring prevents Instant Death from the spell Death, it does not protect against instant death inflicted by the Warp or Teleport spells, which are Matter-elemental.

Final Fantasy IIIEdit

III The Protect Ring is an armlet that resists Fire, Thunder, Ice, Wind, and Light and boosts all stats by two and can be equipped by all the jobs. It can be found in the Temple of Time and Ancients' Maze, or dropped from King Behemoth (rare).

Final Fantasy IVEdit


Ring resistant against fire, ice, and lightning.

The Protect Ring grants resistance to all elements to the wearer. It can be found in the Lunar Subterrane, or dropped from Ahriman and Magic Dragon. It provides +10 Defense, +12 Evasion, +5 Magic Defense, and +10 Magic Evasion.

In the game's original SNES version, when characters equip elemental resistant equipment, they inherently become weak to the opposite element. A character with the Protect Ring is thus weak to Fire and Ice-elemental physical attacks (however, no enemy uses physical elemental attacks so this isn't usually an issue). This is changed in the Advance version where characters are no longer weak against the opposite element.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

FFIVTAY The Protect Ring provides 10 Defense, 12 Magic Defense, 5 Evasion, 10 Magic Evasion, and +15 Stamina, as well as resistance to Fire, Ice, and Lightning. It can be found in the Subterrane or dropped from Fiend Dragon.

There is also a glitch where if one has a piece of equipment that absorbs an element, they will absorb the other elements.

Final Fantasy VEdit


Ring with same effect as Regen.

The Protect Ring is an accessory and grants the wearer Auto-Regen and provides +10 Defense, Magic Evasion, and Magic Defense as well as +1 Weight and +5 Stamina. It can be dropped from Odin, found at Istory Falls, Pyramid of Moore, and the Island Shrine, and stolen from Soul Cannon at the Phoenix Tower.

Final Fantasy VIIEdit

VII The Protect Ring is a ring that grants the wearer the constant Barrier and MBarrier statuses. It can be stolen from the right neck of Schizo, or morphed from Movers.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-Edit

FFVIICC The Protect Ring grants Zack constant statuses Barrier and MBarrier. It can be bought from Mythril Mine Trading for 30,000 gil, and as a reward for completing mission 7-6-2, 9-3-2 or 9-5-3.

Final Fantasy IXEdit

IX The Protect Ring is an Add-on that halves the damage from all elements, and provides +1 Spirit, +2 Defense, +4 Evasion, +3 Magic Defense, and +6 Magic Evasion. It teaches Half MP, Long Reach, and Mag Elm Null. It can be bought from Mene for 8,500 points, or synthesized for 40,000 gil, Rebirth Ring, and Dark Matter at Hades's Synthesis shop.

Others can be acquired by completing the Mognet sidequest by fixing Mognet Central, using a Dead Pepper at a mountain crack on the eastern part of the Lost Continent, completing the lost Nero family quest in Lindblum and by answering all of the Ragtime Mouse's questions correctly.

Final Fantasy XEdit

X Yuna's armor will take the name Protect Ring when its dominant abilities are Auto-Protect or SOS Protect.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

XI Weaker than most Final Fantasy incarnations, Protect Ring only gives +1 to Agility, but can cast Protect II when used as an item.

Final Fantasy XIIEdit

XII Called Ring of Renewal, it generates a constant Regen status and provides +6 Defense and +5 Magick Resist. It is found in Accessories 16 on the License Board and costs 70 LP to use. It can be bought for 18,000 gil at the Necrohol of Nabudis, and is received as a reward for completing the sidequest "Ann and her Sisters" on the Ivalice Skyferries.
