* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'': There are various shield accessories that, among other things, increase the wearer's defense. The Brand of the Inferno allows a player to actually raise these shields, further increasing their defense.

** Vexen's weapon in ''Chain of Memories'' is a giant shield. It also has five ''huge spikes,'' the longest of which is pointing upwards, and longer than his head. Considering how he wields it, the shield can be used for punch-stabbing.
*** In ''Kingdom Hearts II [[NoExportForYou Final Mix+ ]]'', Vexen's shield can by synthesized as a weapon for Goofy.

* Cerberus Guardians in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' use a virtually impenetrable heavy alloy shields, wielding a M-358 Talon in the other hand. There's a few ways to deal with them; flank them, throw explosives past them, shoot through the viewing slot in the shield, use an armor-piercing weapon to shoot through the shield, or just use biotics to rip it out of their hands.
** A DLC mod allows players to use the N7 Paladin class in multiplayer, which comes with a shield-shaped energy field that can be switched on to absorb damage while in the open. It can be upgraded to [[KillItWithFire burn]] or [[KillItWithIce freeze]] enemies it hits. The Geth Juggernaut has the Hex Shield power, which deploys a temporary barrier that blocks a certain amount of enemy fire before being used up. It doesn't move with the Juggernaut, but it can be deployed in doorways or other choke points to great effect. It can also be upgraded to [[ShockAndAwe electrocute]] nearby enemies.
** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', the Shadow Broker uses the (presumably then-prototype) shield later wielded by Paladins. It offers full protection from weapons and powers (and melee attacks, unlike his more DeflectorShield-like stasis barrier) but isn't big enough [[LargeAndInCharge to fully cover him]], allowing Shep to score hits with a modicum of accuracy.

** Shields can be used as weapons, but do little damage. It's possible to duel-wield two shields, but the armor bonuses don't stack, making this a pointless strategy. Many feats and spells introduced in later books also encourage shield use for Paladins, and make [[ShieldBash shield bashing]] a much more viable form of attack.

** While Jon normally eschews a shield in order to be able to wield Longclaw with both hands, when Ramsay challenges him to one-on-one combat with a bow, Jon wisely tosses aside his sword in order to pick up a nearby shield. He uses this shield to block all of Ramsay's arrows before closing in and knocking him down with a ShieldBash.

** Ex-Crimson Lance Vault Hunter Athena in ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'' has, as her Action skill, whipping out a shield that renders her effectively invulnerable to fire from in front of her; when the duration runs out or you press the trigger again, she flings it at an enemy's head, dealing damage. Her Phalanx tree focuses on buffing its effects so that Athena with shields up is a super-tanky regenerating monster capable of dishing out tons of damage while taking none in return, while her Ceraunic Storm lets her shield create firestorms when thrown and call down thunderbolts on people who attack it. (Her third tree, Xiphos, focuses more on [[HeroesPreferSwords her sword]].)

* Some of the hero classes in ''VideoGame/ForHonor'' wield shields in addition to their weapon; the Conqueror from the Knights, and the Warlord and Valkyrie from the Vikings. Their shields give them improved defensive ability and can also be used to smash into enemies, stunning them or knocking them over. The regular soldier mooks from each faction also wield shields [[ShieldsAreUseless but they might as well be made of paper for how well they go up against hero characters]]. The Samurai are the only faction to have no shield-using heroes.

** The shield is always usable and a necessity in ''MegaManStarForce'', as some attacks are unavoidable otherwise. Fortunately, it stays active a lot longer then in the aforementioned series, and you're also allowed to move and attack immediately after blocking something to reduce your risk of getting hit once it vanishes.

* The ''VideoGame/XMenLegends'' and ''MarvelUltimateAlliance'' games have shielded enemies who cannot be damaged so long as they're holding their shields, so you have to run up and tear it out of their hands.
