The Shield Bash is a skill from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Link can use this technique to parry an enemy's attack with his shield, often causing the enemy to recoil, lowering its guard and providing an opening for an attack. It will also prevent Link from recoiling from a powerful attack, allowing for further defence or a counterattack. The Shield Bash is also capable of reflecting projectiles and energy beams.

Appearances Edit

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Edit

The Shield Bash's successful use prevents the Shield Gauge from depleting, extending the life of Link's shield. It is also useful against certain bosses. Interestingly, if Link uses this skill with perfect timing, Link can block a fire attack with the Wooden Shield, or an electric attack with the Iron Shield, without it being destroyed. Link can also block some attacks with his sword, but this requires specific timing.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Edit

Link can perform this skill to reflect attacks in a similar fashion to Skyward Sword.
