The Red Shield is an item in A Link to the Past.[1]

Location and Uses

The Red Shield is an enhanced version of Link's original shield. It is capable of absorbing small fireballs, and becomes extremely helpful for Link during his quest until he finds the Mirror Shield.

The Red Shield can be acquired for free by throwing the Fighter's Shield into the Mysterious Pond of the Waterfall of Wishing. By answering the Great Fairy's question honestly, she will reward him with this upgraded shield.[2] Link can also buy this shield from various shops around the Light and Dark Worlds.
