List of Shields

Shield Shield Guard Durability Composition Description

Boko Shield
3 5 Wood A Bokoblin-made shield created by attaching a handhold to any flat tree bark picked up off the ground. It's pretty shoddy, so don't expect it to last very long.

48 60 Metal This shield was cherished by the Gerudo Champion Urbosa. The gold used to make it was handpicked to ensure a design that is both lightweight and very durable.

Dragonbone Boko Shield
25 8 Wood This Boko shield is reinforced with fossilized bone. Its defensive capabilities are respectable, but its predictably slipshod craftsmanship spells low durability.

Emblazoned Shield
3 12 Wood This shield features a traditional design from Necluda. Its combat capabilities aren't much better than the standard wooden shield, but it found popularity for its design.

Fisherman's Shield
3 10 Wood Often carried by fishermen for its fish design, which represents hope for a great catch. Its light wooden construction makes it convenient to take onto a boat.

Forest Dweller's Shield
30 18 Wood The Koroks made this shield specifically for Hylians. It's made from the finest hard wood of trees that grow only in the Korok forest, so it's sturdier than it looks.

Gerudo Shield
28 20 Metal The design of this metal shield has changed over time to match the Gerudo's sword-and-shield fighting style. It's favored by soldiers and travelers alike.

Hunter's Shield
3 10 Wood Favored by hunters for its rabbit design, which is said to bring luck on hunts. It's easy to use, but its durability leaves something to be desired.

Hylian Shield
90 800 Metal A shield passed down through the Hyrulean royal family, along with the legend of the hero who wielded it. Its defensive capabilities and durability outshine all other shields.

Kite Shield
14 16 Metal Rito warriors cherish this shield. Its unique shape is designed with midbattle flight in mind to facilitate aerial combat.

Knight's Shield
40 23 Metal A shield favored by the knights who served the Hyrulean royal family. Its sturdy metal construction makes it quite durable, but its weight requires decent skill to wield.

Lizal Shield
15 8 Metal A common shield found among the Lizalfos. It's made of metal, but its sloppy craftsmanship offers poor durability.

Lynel Shield
30 12 Metal A sturdy shield favored by Lynels for its defensive and offensive capabilities. First and foremost a shield, but the bladed edges can deal slashing attacks when deflecting.

Mighty Lynel Shield
44 15 Metal This Lynel-made shield has been reinforced with armor and even more blades. Stronger in both defense and offense, it can tear through basic armor when deflecting.

Mighty Zonaite Shield
50 20 Zonaite A shield used by Zonai and made of zonaite. It is very durable and draws on its stored energy to more efficiently use an attached Zonai device.

Old Wooden Shield
2 12 Wood An aged, worn-out wooden shield. It can withstand lighter attacks, such as arrows.

Pot Lid
1 10 Wood The lid of a large soup pot. It smells vaguely of poultry broth... Yum! It can take quite a beating before breaking.

Radiant Shield
35 26 Metal This extravagant shield is presented to Gerudo warriors who rise to the rank of captain. Its apparent opulence is rivaled only by its combat capabilities.

Reinforced Lizal Shield
22 12 Metal This Lizal shield has been strengthened by adding a different type of metal to the mix. The edge is lined with spikes, so handle with care.

Royal Guard's Shield
70 14 Metal This shield was forged using ancient Sheikah technology. It boasts extremely high stopping power, but its structural weakness made its low durability impractical for combat.

Royal Shield
55 29 Metal A shield issued to the Hyrulean royal family's immediate guard detail. It boasts a high defense, but these days it's more a collector's item due to its ornamentation.

Rusty Shield
3 16 Metal It's likely this rusty shield once belonged to a knight. It still has some defensive capabilities, but its usefulness has been worn down by time.

Savage Lynel Shield
62 20 Metal This ultimate Lynel shield is favored by the White-Maned Lynels. It excels at defending against even the most brutal of attacks and cutting down powerful foes when deflecting.

Sea-Breeze Shield
65 90 Metal A shield said to have been favorite of a hero who traveled the open seas. It was apparently a family heirloom, passed down through many generations.

Shield of the Mind's Eye
16 16 Metal A small Sheikah-made shield. Its design is intended to decrease blind spots without sacrificing too much defense.

Soldier's Shield
16 16 Wood A shield once used by the guards of Hyrule Castle. It's easy to handle, but it's core is made of wood, so it can catch fire.

Spiked Boko Shield
10 7 Wood A Boko shield made of slightly stronger wood and reinforced with animal bones.

Steel Lizal Shield
35 7 Metal This Lizal shield is adorned with several metal shells as a means of reinforcement. Its defensive capabilities are high, but its weight requires a skilled soldier to bear.

Strong Zonaite Shield
26 15 Zonaite A shield used by Zonai and made of zonaite. It is moderately durable and lowers the energy consumption of an attached Zonai device.

Traveler's Shield
4 12 Wood A sturdy shield loved by many an adventurer. It is made of animal hide and sturdy wood and is best suited to defending against weak monsters or animals.

Wooden Shield
2 12 Wood This lightweight, simple shield is ideal for less experienced fighters. It can withstand light attacks, but blocking stronger blows is not recommended...

Zonaite Shield
11 15 Zonaite A shield used by Zonai and made of zonaite. It lowers the energy consumption of an attached Zonai device.

Zora Shield
24 20 Metal A Zora-made shield adorned with intricate ornamentation. It's said that true masters of this shield can redirect attacks as a rock redirects rushing water.
