Shields are a type of equipment found only in Spectrobes: Origins.
Shields serve the purpose of raising the player's defense and allowing them to block projectiles in battle. Shields are equipped as a separate piece of equipment rather than a weapon. As such, the shield is used in a different manner than other weapons, by holding the Wii Remote and Nunchuck upward at the same time. Shields do not entirely negate damage, only reducing it.
