* In ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', Frodo gets hit more than his fair share of arrows to show that orc archers mean business. Conveniently, thanks to his ''mithril'' shirt, he's the only one of the Fellowship who can take such hits without slightest effect.

* A strange subversion in ''{{VideoGame/Bloodborne}}''. Being that the game is developed by Creator/FromSoftware, makers of ''{{VideoGame/Demons Souls}}'' and ''{{VideoGame/Dark Souls}}'', {{Genre Savvy}} players may expect to have to use shields because they were borderline essential in From Soft's prior games. But while a shield is present within the game, the game discourages use of shields with the addition of firearms(shields and firearms can only be used in the left hand slot) and the Rally/Regain mechanic, which allows players to replenish lost health by [[AttackAttackAttack striking back as quickly as possible]]. Not only that, but a shield's item description subtly mocks players expecting ''Bloodborne'' to be like From Software's other games that strongly encourage use of shields.

* In ''VideoGame/RavenswordShadowlands'', the game features a couple of shields you can use to protect yourself. It's a very sensible thing to do, considering that every melee weapon in the game is one-handed and there's no dual-wielding, not to mention that the shields provide a way higher Defense bonus than any other piece of armor.

* Hailey in ''VideoGame/Gamer2'' has a deflector plate that will block a single attack, but go bouncing away as a result. She'll have to retrieve it or remain a OneHitPointWonder until she reaches a CheckPoint.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/Splatoon2'' has the umbrella-class weapons, which are {{exactly what it says on the tin}}. All variants except one shoot a single shot of ink at a time, with the shield popping up if you keep the trigger held down after a shot. If you hold the trigger long enough, the shield will launch off, leaving a path of ink behind it as it travels. Hitting an opponent with the shield gives chip damage. There is one umbrella weapon that keeps the shield up at all times when shooting and doesn't launch it, but it also hosts the weakest shield of the bunch.

Added DiffLines:

* The ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'' franchise contains several characters that sport shields. The shields are mainly used as part of a character's moveset, such as tossing it at foes or bashing enemies' heads in. Since all characters are able to block/guard anyway, having a shield doesn't offer any extra defense than without one. It simply is an aesthetic change, since they'll raise their shield to defend against attacks.
** The main Dynasty Warriors series has Cao Ren and Xing Cai. Lu Linqi will also carry a shield in the 9th entry.
** The VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors games have Muneshige Tachibana, who wields a sword and shield.
** VideoGame/HyruleWarriors has the sword and shield moveset for Link.
** The [[Literature/TheHeroicLegendofArslan Arslan]] crossover game has Zaravant, who carries a shield with his spear.
** The entry based on the Trojan War has many shield-toting characters.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild Breath of the Wild]]'' Link can reflect any projectile with any shield in the game by parrying, so it's perfectly possible to use a wooden pot lid to send back a Guardian's laser blast. Though if he messes up the timing, both the shield and Link will take damage. In a case of GameplayAndStoryIntergration, it's mentioned in the "Champions' Ballad" DLC that being able to do this is why he was chosen to be Zelda's personal bodyguard.
