The Ballroom Masque is a mask in Castlevania that nobles wear at formal dances.
It first appeared in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (called a Dance Mask in Japan and Ballroom Mask in North America), where it provides Defense +2. This is an improvement over the Sunglasses (which only provide DEF +1 and deduce INT -1), but is inferior to the Stone Mask, which also provides Intelligence +4.
Jonathan can use the Ballroom Masque in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, where it grants him DEF +4 and INT +1. It is dropped by Ghost Dancers. This is compared to Jonathan's Stone Mask, which increases Luck instead of Intelligence, or the cursed Skull Mask, which increases DEF greatly by 13, but at the cost of 3 INT, MND and LCK.
Castlevania: Judgment features a mask called the Gold Masquerade Mask, which can be equipped to customize a character, but has no in-game effect. It is earned by defeating the first room in Castle Mode with Sypha.
