The Helmet (ヘルメット Herumetto?) is an item exclusive to the Japanese version of MediEvil.

Description and usage

Daniel begins the game with the helmet equipped. It can be removed by selecting it in the inventory and equipped again by selecting it once it has been removed. It only serves as a cosmetic item and wearing it doesn't provide any bonuses.
Daniel also wears the helmet in all the loading screens and full motion videos.


  • The helmet was added into the game, because the Japanese might have seen Dan's skeletal head as a bad spirit and not a 'hero.'[1]
