The Daybreaker is the most durable and protective variant of the Gerudo Shield, adorned with a jeweled Gerudo emblem. Before the second Great Calamity, is was beloved by the Gerudo Champion Urbosa.[1] It was designed to be both lightweight and durable, and the gold used to make it was handpicked to ensure so.[1]

After Urbosa's death, the Daybreaker and the Scimitar of the Seven became treasures of the Gerudo.[2] After defeating Thunderblight Ganon and calming Divine Beast Vah Naboris, Riju will offer Link both the Daybreaker and the Scimitar of the Seven.[3] She believes it's right he should have them, as he was friends with Urbosa.[4] Both Items can be found in Treasure Chests behind Riju's throne in Gerudo Town.

If either Item breaks, Buliara will offer to remake them for Link. To make the Daybreaker, she needs one Diamond, five pieces of Flint, and a Gerudo Shield.[5]

Selmie will take note of the Daybreaker if Link has it equipped when he speaks to her. She will ask if she's dreaming, explaining she's wanted the Daybreaker so badly that she's seen it in her dreams.[6]

Being made of metal, the Daybreaker will attract Lightning if it's equipped during a thunderstorm. It will also sink if it's dropped in water, but it can still be picked up and manipulated with the Magnesis Rune if it happens. In addition, it won't burn like wooden Shields when exposed to Fire or a Scorching Climate.

Daybreakers can be wielded by Urbosa in conjunction with Scimitars of the Seven, which she uses to defend herself against frontal attacks.
