Kirby's Return to Dream Land screenshot
Sheld is an enemy appearing in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition, and Kirby: Triple Deluxe. It looks like a small blue and pink spherical creature with green feet and a large metal helmet on its head. Shelds attack by trying to ram into Kirby and his friends. In order to defeat it, Kirby or the others must take off its helmet. After its helmet is taken off, the Sheld will be defenseless and run around aimlessly. Neither the Sheld nor its helmet will give an ability when inhaled.
In Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Sheld underwent minor changes. It still attacks the same way it does in the other two games, but it doesn't completely face the side when running. The enemy is slightly smaller and doesn't squeal when its helmet is destroyed. An unarmored Sheld retreats much faster as well.
Sheld's name is a combination of the shell and shield, referencing its defense.
- Sheld has a resemblance to Gabon. Like Gabon, it has a type of armor and flees when defenseless.
