In Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (called Hide Cuirass in North America and Leather Breastplate in Japan), it is the weakest armor, giving +2 Defense, which is one more than a Cloth Tunic, but one less than Bronze Armor.
In Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, the Leather Plate gives +10 Defense, which is 3 more than a Cloth Tunic, but 8 less than a Copper Plate.
In Castlevania: Curse of Darkness, the Soft Leather Armor is the first type of armor that can be created (combine two Wild Memory) and is a the most basic armor, granting +5 Defense. It is normally upgraded to Hard Leather Armor by adding a Jet Black, increasing its Defense by 3. It can also be upgraded to Hide Armor by adding Sun Tears, which decreases its Defense to +3, but adds a Constitution boost of +5. It is also one of the ingredients needed to make a Spike Shield (by combining it with a Leather Helmet and adding Bronze and Steel).
