- "The design of this metal shield has changed over time to match the Gerudo's sword-and-shield fighting style. It's favored by soldiers and travelers alike."

Link can obtain one at Gerudo Town or from Lizalfos in Gerudo Desert which occasionally wield them. One spawns upon a stone spire east of the Dako Tah Shrine however camouflage Lizalfos cling to the spire making climbing it difficult though Link can climb up to a natural stone bridge nearby and use the Paraglider to reach the top and the shield. Some Gerudo like Lukan and Sudrey wield Gerudo Shields. Repairing the Daybreaker requires a Gerudo Shield in its reconstruction.
The Gerudo Shield has a base defense power of 20, though this may be increased by a Shield Guard Up Bonus. It is the weakest of the Gerudo made shields as it is weaker than the Radiant Shield and legendary Daybreaker shield.
- "That's a Gerudo shield! The Gerudo are famous for it! Wow, they put actual thought into making it surfable."
- — Selmie
According to the legendary Hylian Shield Surfer Selmie, the Gerudo actually put thought into making it a surfable, which is not surprising considering the Gerudo practice of Sand-Seal Surfing though Selmie is herself is apparently unaware of this fact.
