The standard Shield can be bought at any shop throughout Hyrule and Lorule for 50 Rupees.[1] Like Likes are able to eat it, thus necessitating the need to purchase another.

The Hylian Shield is found in Lorule's Turtle Rock dungeon. Its appearance is identical to that of the Hylian Shield from Ocarina of Time. Unlike the standard Shield, it can block magical attacks and Lynels' fire.[2] However, it will not reflect them back.


  1. "Oh, you're interested in a shield? That makes perfect sense what with all those monsters outside the village. They sprang up so suddenly! I'll sell it to you for 50 Rupees. How about it?" — Item Seller (Hyrule) (A Link Between Worlds)
  2. "You got the Hylian Shield! This can protect you against magical attacks." — N/A (A Link Between Worlds)
