The Dragon Cloth is one of the 48 Bronze Cloths worn by the weakest of Athena's Saints. Shiryu's hard training earned him the Dragon Cloth, the hardest cloth after being 200 years under the legendary waterfall, becoming harder than diamonds.
Shiryu has a large shield on his left arm said be the strongest shield, while his right hand has the strongest fist, giving the Dragon Cloth the nickname "The strongest fist and shield".
His Cloth has changed several times during the series.
Shiryu's first Cloth has a powerful color of emerald green which covers his legs up to the knees, a kilt to protect his waist, chestplate that covers his upper chest and a helmet to protect the head.
On his left arm resides a large shield with extraordinary durability, known as the most powerful shield in the world, while his right arm is known as the strongest fist.
