Chaos Adaptive Equipment (混沌適応装備) or simply Adaptive Equipment (適応装備) is a type of item from Mass for the Dead.


Originally it was believed that crossing into the Chaos Zone was impossible, as any attempts to pass through the Crack to reach the other side and come back has been met with failure.

Later it was discovered that the failure of communication on the other side is due to the inhospitable enviroment. Normally any living or unliving thing from the New World that passes, into the zone will fall unconscious. The phenomena is termed the "chaos environment", and it affects not just living beings but even non-living beings. Under the adverse effects of the world, no one, save for Chaos Beasts and Contaminated Beasts are able to function.

However due to the recent research of Sophie Noia, the alchemist found that Chaos Stones could be used to enhance items that make them resistant to the corrupting effect of the "chaos environment" found within the Chaos Zone. Her application though a major breakthrough was similar in regards to players embedding data crystals to items to enhance them. The technique was taken by the Sorcerer Kingdom and later the Chief Blacksmith and Pandora's Actor used the research to create adaptive equipment which has been utilized by the Sorcerer Kingdom to lead future expeditions into the alien world.

Due to the importance of the new magical development, the Sorcerer Kingdom's monopoly of the adaptive equipment made it be recognized as a nation necessary to the survival of the Tripartite Alliance.


The equipment is customizable and can be placed on current equipment a user is wear. Its size can be increased or decreased to suit the user, though will cause their appearance to glow an eerie color similar to the Cracks.


The adaptive equipment is composed of disposable pieces, armor, that could be used to safely enter the Crack without users succumbing to the hostile effects of the "chaos environment". However each piece has a finite lifespan and must be replaced eventually or less the user will succumbed to the effect of the noxious Chaos Zone. Beside having the disadvantage of being a consumable item, it has also been confirmed to have the effect of increasing some ability values ​​more than usual in a chaotic environment.

Despite containing magic that allows it to fit a person, the equipment still needs to be tailored for specific wearers.

  • And later was mass produced by the Sorcerer Kingdom and provided to the Quadripartite Alliance for a rescue operation to bring back all the victims trapped in the Chaos Zone.[2]
  • Prior to the rescue operation, the equipment was shared to the Alliance, at a pep rally with instructions on its proper use and care provided by the protagonist.[3]
  • Oddly Arche Eeb Rile Furt who was declared dead in the game events was spotted on the other side of the Crack wearing adaptive equipment. However it is unclear whether it is actually of the same origin as the equipment developed in the Sorcerer Kingdom or if she is the real Arche.[4]
