The Dark Armor also known as Mojo Mail (not to be confused with the Dark Armor known as the Devious Breastplate in Japan) is a dark breastplate that increases magical attack power. Like the Demon's Mail, it sometimes increases defense against Dark based attacks.
In Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, it grants a Defense boost of +15 and an Intelligence boost of +1; more significantly, it also grants a 50% bonus to damage inflicted by spells and Familiars. It is the counterpart to the Brilliant Armor (called the Light Breastplate in Japan), which instead increases the power of sub-weapons, gives a Defense boost of +12 along with an Intelligence boost of +1. It also has the same amount of Defense that the toughest armor that only increases Defense (Diamond Armor) and the third toughest (not including Walk Armor) armor in the game, giving less Defense than the Alucard Mail (+20).
This armor is called Dark Armor in Castlevania: Circle of the Moon. It does not grant protection against Darkness attacks or increase magical abilities. Like the Mojo Mail in Symphony of the Night, it is one of the highest defensive armor and is the counterpart to the Brilliant Armor (called Shining Armor in this game). It is a "cursed" armor that gives a great amount of Defense (in fact, the highest amount in the game), but is "cursed", thus reducing other stats (Strength, Intelligence, and Luck by 10). While it has slightly more defense than the "ultimate" armor Shining Armor (+500), the Shining Armor increases the same stats that the Dark Armor decreases, and is thus slightly more valuable overall.
