** [[VideoGame/{{PAYDAY2}} The sequel]] ratchets things up a bit with the Shields. On Very Hard and higher, a variant of the Shield appears carrying a much bigger shield with "FBI" across it. It makes shooting past them a lot harder. Then, when [[KingMook Captain Winters and his lackeys]] show up, they carry ''even bigger'' shields which cannot be shot past at all. Though there are more ways of dealing with Shields in this game. Not only can players outflank them again, but they don't stand up terribly well to [[StuffBlowingUp explosions]] or [[KillItWithFire fire]].

Not to be confused with CharacterShield or LuckilyMyPowersWillProtectMe (although one may shout "Luckily my shield will protect me!" to invoke the latter trope). Somewhat similar to DeployableCover. It is the raison d'etre of the ShieldBearingMook.

* ''Literature/KingsOfTheWyld'': Clay spends a significant portion of the book with no weapon except his shield ''Blackheart''. He carved it from the corpse of the treant Blackheart, who Saga killed for leading a group of treants in attacking a town.

* The ''[[BilingualBonus Schürzen]]'' spaced applique armout of [[NazisWithGnarlyWeapons Panzer III and IV and their derivatives]]. Originally designed to defeat anti-tank rifles (Panzer III and IV had abysmally bad side armour) they proved also efficient against HEAT shaped-charge ammunition such as Bazooka and [=PIAT=]

** Most Jackals and Skirmishers (all but the snipers and scouts) are equipped with a handheld energy shield. It's not invulnerable and will fail under sustained fire (especially from energy weapons) and melee attacks, but it's more efficient to either flank them or shoot through a notch in the shield and take advantage of the opening when the Jackal flinches.

*** Skirmisher Murmillones wield two shields, one at each arm, which are much smaller but still effective at deflecting fire, and allow the Skirmisher to remain highly mobile, making an already hard target even more frustrating.
*** Elites in the Expanded Universe have wielded the same shields, but are reluctant to do so ([[HonorBeforeReason it's dishonorable]]).
** Forerunners utilized a HardLight Shield, featured in {{Halo 4}} as both an Armor Ability players can pick up and a defensive measure produced by [[BarrierWarrior Watchers]]. It's nigh-invulnerable to every weapon in the game but has a limited (rechargeable) battery.
