Dragon Helm Icon

The Dragon Helm (called Egil's Helmet in Japan) is a helmet that frightens enemies in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. It grants STR +4 and DEF +3, and halves the defense of all enemies. It is one of the items Alucard wears when he first enters Dracula's Castle, but which is then stolen by Death. It can be retrieved shortly after entering the Reverse Castle, in a room located at the bottom-leftmost part of the Reverse Clock Tower.

The Dragon Helm has the same effect in Castlevania: Harmony of Despair and can only be worn by Alucard, Soma and Getsu Fuma; however, it makes its wearer more susceptible to Holy based attacks.

  • The in-game description for this item in Symphony of the Night and Harmony of Despair reads "Frightens enemies, lowers DEF", which may be misinterpreted as lowering the player's own DEF instead of that of the enemies.


  • "Egil" can refer to several Norse and Germanic heroes, including a Viking berzerker.
  • The Dragon Helm is an elvish item from Tolkien's The Silmarillion.
