Robe of Yūen (悠遠の衣 Yūen no Koromo) is one of Erza Scarlet's armors.
This armor is a beautiful Japanese/Chinese attire reminiscent of a revealing kimono. It consists of a short sleeveless tunic decorated with many flower motifs, which has revealing openings on the sides and front, exposing much of Erza’s chest. These openings are held closed by a large, dark obi, which has a thin red rope tied around it, sporting a wide closing ribbon on the back. What also closes the openings of this armor is a lighter and smaller white belt, which is wrapped around a pink, flower-patterned cloth circling Erza’s waist on the back and the sides. On the front, her groin is covered by a long cloth hanging down from her tunic, while the back is circled by another one, almost reaching down to her knees, possessing jagged edges. Another cloth is also hanging down from the sides, held closed by the ribbon on her back. This cloth has a yellow border and is folded to the outside and split into multiple edges at the middle of the cloth, pointing away from Erza's body. Erza’s legs are covered by light stockings reaching up to her thighs, and her feet have simple sandals.
In the manga, the attire sports a separate, loose flower-patterned sleeve with a thin rope tied around it, covering Erza’s right arm. In the anime this was changed to having both forearms covered in white bandages. Additionally, the flowers on her attire were also removed in favor of simpler motifs.
- Bisentō: The outfit comes equipped with a bisentō, a large Japanese polearm similar to a halberd. The blade has a cove at the start of the blunt side of the blade, a small hole above the cove, and an even smaller hole above the small hole.
