** Specifically the build known as the [[FanNickname Smitadin]] revolved around shields. The build focuses on the ability Smite, which is a ShieldBash that knocks back and stuns enemies and does damage based on what type of shield you have equipped and your defensive stats. It's already a very fast attack and can be augmented further with the Fanaticism Aura, allowing for multiple hits per second. Things get really over the top when all stats (beyond those needed to equip gear) are focused defensively. The Smitadin turns into a walking juggernaut with a 95% chance to dodge and a 90% reduction in damage taken, becoming the only build that can tank Duriel face to face and even stand in Diablo's fire lightning, as well as one of only a handful of builds capable of easily soloing Hell difficulty - only running into problems when faced with physical immune enemies.

** Several martial classes have access to specialized archetypes that focus on shields as well, such as the Divine Shield (a Paladin who can empower their shield with holy energy and share its defensive traits with nearby allies) and the Shield Champion (a Brawler who focuses on punching and shield bashing enemies, and eventually gains the ability to [[ThrowingYourShieldAlwaysWorks throw their shield like Captain America]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'': Mash, being summoned as a unique "Shielder"-class Servant, carries around an enormous shield. As one might expect, she's mostly a defensive-based character, though she can [[ShieldBash smack enemies around with the shield]] as an attack. The shield is also her Noble Phantasm, and when it's used to its full power, there's very little that can break through it. Even Saber's Excalibur, one of the stronger offensive Noble Phantasms in the story, was deflected.

* In Film/WonderWoman Diana brings a round shield with her to the World of Man, and uses it several times. She uses it both defensively, mostly against ranged weapons, but also as an offensive bashing weapon. Once, she even deflects an incoming mortar round.

* Is a discrete skill in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', one can equip a shield with a one-hand weapon. By holding the "Parry" button, one can hide behind it, and avoid almost all damage. However, it reduces one's speed to a crawl, and you can't attack while cowering behind your shield.
** Also available in the game's three predecessors. There the chance for the shield to block an attack was randomly determined based on your "Block" skill.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' expands greatly on ''Oblivion'''s use of shields by giving the Block skill its own perk tree and some revamped mechanics. In addition to blocking attacks as in previous games, shields now have a bash attack that has a chance to stagger an opponent and interrupt power attacks if used as a counter-attack. The perk tree expands further on shield usage with extra bonuses like a major boost to elemental resistance (which is ''especially'' handy in dragon fights) and the ability to negate damage from arrows. Not to mention the Spellbreaker which, as its name implies, [[NoSell No Sells]] up to 50 incoming magic damage.
*** To add to the hilarity, damage reduced by blocking compounds with damage reduced by your armour, which can both go up to 80%, meaning that any physical attack that you block with a maximum block and armour rating is essentially reduced to 3% effectiveness.

* Is ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The series' has included the use of shields since its inception, though their use changes drastically over the course of the series. One universal trait is that using
a discrete shield limits you to the use of one-handed weapons. To note:
*** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsArena Arena]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', shields are treated as a piece of armor and range from bucklers to tower shields, with the size of the shield dictating how much of the character's body is protected.
*** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' introduces the "Block"
skill in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''.
** In
and, while shields are still considered a piece of armor which counts toward your overall armor rating, it is also the first to give them the ability to block an incoming non-magical attack (with the damage instead being taken out of the shield's [[BreakableWeapons condition]]). This is not an "active" ability however, and the chance that it triggers is based on the Block skill and [[LuckStat Luck attribute]].

The Block skill, as well as the quality of the shield, determine how much damage the shield with a one-hand weapon. By holding the "Parry" button, one can hide behind it, and avoid almost all damage. However, it reduces one's speed to a crawl, and you can't block will absorb. You also cannot attack while cowering behind actively blocking with your shield.

** The series' has a few legendary "artifact" shields of note:
*** Spell Breaker is an artifact shield associated with the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] Peryite. It has made several appearances in the series, typically being an [[InfinityPlusOneSword Infinity +1 Shield]] which can also [[AntiMagic block incoming magic attacks]]. (Standard shields typically do nothing against magical attacks.)
*** Eleidon's Ward is another artifact shield, taking the form of a large white tower shield which can heal the bearer. In ages past, [[UnevenHybrid Breton]] baron spent all of his riches to have it crafted and enchanted as a reward for a knight who rescued his daughter.
