Every Dragon Quest game since… maybe DQ III… has had these items called Boxer Shorts. What the heck are they? Well, I know what boxer shorts are, but what are they in the game? What is their purpose? They never have a very good defensive rating when you get them. This is just one of a number of seemingly pointless ‘sexy’ items that you can get in these games. Posh waistcoat? Fishnet stockings? Bunny suit?

Does anybody know what these are for? Does something special happen if you equip an entire set? I think things like that happen in World of Warcraft, like attribute bonuses if you wear an entire set of Super Shining Armor or stuff like that. But I have never made something like it happen in a Dragon Quest game. Is it just junk loot for you to sell and buy better stuff? The world may never know…
