** Goofy uses a shield. The manual states that Goofy despises weapons. Notably, in the [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts first game]], many of his shields fall into one of two categories: those meant for defending and those [[TechnicalPacifist meant for bashing]].

* 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.

** [[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.
