- "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 obtained one at Gerudo Town 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.
