- "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, after completing a main quest, or from Lizalfos in Gerudo Desert which occasionally wield them. 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.
