Shields are items that can block attacks.

Alucard has the largest variety of shields available to him in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night, and Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. He is able to equip one in one arm and they can usually block projectiles, although some can be used as weapons. He is unable to equip a shield if he is wielding a 2 Handed Weapon. In Harmony of Despair, some shields can reflect attacks.

Castlevania: Curse of DarknessEdit

Item DataEdit

The Spike Shield is the only shield featured in this game. But it is used not for defensive purposes like an ordinary shield but instead offensively like a weapon. It has only one attack animation which consists of Hector swinging the weapon upwards from his hand.

Additionally, Shield is also an ability of the Crystal Rod which basically blocks any enemy attack. However, each cast of the spell is only for one-time protection and costs 20 Hearts to be cast.
