The Paludamentum is a Roman general's cloak in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin that can be purchased from Vincent Dorin for $15,000 once you have acquired enough Shop Points. It gives a +5 Defense and Intelligence boost, which is 2 more for each than the Holy Mantle or the Blue Cape.

In Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, it is the best overall cape that can be worn by any of the non-DLC characters. It gives above average defense against Fire and Ice (+8) and twice as much defense against Lightning (+10) as the Elven Cloak. It gives more MP than any other cape (+15) and as much MND (+5) as an Elven Cloak, and only the Black Cloak gives higher HP (+10) or DEF (+5). It is worth the same amount of gold as Alucard and Soma's Black Cloak.
