"No matter how well tempered a blade is, if a foe is clad in armor and bears a shield, the sword will do it no harm."
Hero's Shade

The Shield Attack is a Hidden Skill from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It is the second Hidden Skill learned from the Hero's Shade. It forces an enemy to lower its defense. The Shield Attack can be performed by approaching an enemy and thrusting the nunchuck forward on the Wii version and pressing both L and R at the same time on the GameCube. Link will ram the enemy forcefully with his shield. If executed correctly, the move leaves the enemy temporarily dazed and vulnerable to a follow-up attack from Link's sword such as the Helm Splitter. The Shield Attack can also be used to reflect certain projectiles.
