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.

The Royal Guard's Shield is found in Hyrule Castle, as it is meant to be used by the royal guards of the royal family 100 years before Breath of the Wild. The shield has the second-highest defense points, which is 70, second only to the almighty Hylian Shield which has 90. Unlike the durable Hylian Shield, the Royal Guard's Shield isn't exactly durable as it can only take 14 hits at most without bonuses. This is said to be a flaw that runs in all of Royal Guard's Series, in which the Sheikah tribe, after its advanced technology has been lost, attempted to make the Royal Shield of more ability to defend strong attacks, but instead, its durability drops low, making it unreliable for enduring combat.

One Royal Guard's Shield can be found in the King's Secret Study, next to the library of Hyrule Castle.
