The Shield is a large, round, brown disk with a handle on one side and a stud on the other. It is held in the left hand.
This item is known in LEGO sets as Shield Round with Stud and Ring Around Edge and is only available with certain minifigs, such as the Viking Woman. Shields of other colours and styles are common in many themes, but especially the Castle, Ninjago and Chima themes.
- The Shield cannot be held at the same time as another item. Attacks made while holding the shield are made with the Character's empty hand.
