The Shield Bash is an ability in Skyward Sword.[1]


Link can learn the Shield Bash ability after first acquiring a Shield.[2] The Knight Commander Eagus teaches Link this ability at the Sparring Hall.[3] To perform the Shield Bash, Link must ready his Shield right before an enemy attacks him. The force from his Shield arm will repel the enemy's attack.[4] The Shield Bash gives Link an opening to strike his opponent.[1] The technique is useful against enemies who throw weapons or refuse to give an opening.[5] Using the Shield Bash to parry an attack requires perfect timing in battle.[6] Link can practice this ability on the Defense-practice Log in the Sparring Hall.[7]
