Masakado's Helm is the haunted helmet of a general whose neck was twisted.


The helmet gives a DEF boost of +15, a STR and CON boost of +10, but at the expense of -10 LCK. It is essentially a more extreme version of the Stone Mask (+5 STR, +5 CON, +2 DEF, -5 LCK) and it's the ultimate evolution of that mask. The intermediate evolutions between a Stone Mask are mostly worthless and should be avoided until you're ready to create the Masakado's Helm.

Masakado's Helm is created by adding Adamantine to a Topknot, which is created by adding a Nodachi to a Tengu Mask, which is created by adding a Spirit of Fuji to a Face Guard, which is created by adding a Gano to a Stone Mask.

The Masakado's Helm and Stone Masks are the only head protective items worth equipping that don't have the greatest amount of DEF at any given time. The Masakado's Helm has one less total attribute point less than the Cross Helmet (+26), which has the highest amount of DEF for a helmet.

Masakado's Helm is similar to another Japanese helmet that appears in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, the Shogun Helmet, which sacrifices INT instead of LCK for other high statistics.
