Spiked Mail Icon

The Spiked Armor (also known as Needle Armor or Spiked Mail) is a body armor with spikes on it that can be used offensively.

Game specific information

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon

In Circle of the Moon, the Needle Armor provides a STR bonus of +10, and is also one of the toughest armors found in the game, granting DEF +400, which is more than the Mirror Armor (+300), but less than the Shining Armor (+500, with addition of +10 boosts for STR, INT and LCK).

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin

In Portrait of Ruin, the Spiked Mail does not offer Jonathan boosts for any kind of stats; in fact, it reduces both his CON and MND by 20 points. In return, if an enemy makes physical contact with him, it will also take damage. It can only be purchased from Vincent's shop for $33,000 once the player has accumulated at least 15,000 Shop Points.

A benefit, which may not be so evident at first, is that Jonathan will destroy any candles he comes in contact with and automatically receive its contents (either Hearts or Gold), resulting in a more dynamic gameplay overall.
