Chief among metal Shields are the Royal Shields, whose Durability and defensive power outshine many others. Before the Great Calamity, these Shields were issued to the immediate guard detail of the Royal Family of Hyrule.[1] Though they have an incredibly high defense, Royal Shields are considered collector's items due to their ornamentations.[1]

Being rare, there are only nine Royal Shields scattered across Hyrule Kingdom, with a tenth in Master Mode. Of these, six are held by Enemies. Some Royal Shields with consistent locations include:

When Link speaks to Selmie with a Royal Shield equipped, she will take note. She points out the one she has hanging up and claims it's the best Shield she's seen for Shield Surfing.[2]

Royal Shields are made of metal, and will therefore attract Lightning if they're equipped during a thunderstorm. They also sink if they're dropped in water, but they won't burn if exposed to Fire or a Scorching Climate. The Magnesis Rune also works on them, allowing Link to pick up and manipulate them.

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

Royal Shields can be wielded by Link in conjunction with Royal Broadswords.
