The Hylia Shield is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable items in The Legend of Zelda series. In Skyward Sword, however, it’s not that easy to find, and it takes some time and, more importantly, effort to get it.
Getting your hands on this precious protection, in fact, is not as easy as you might think, both in the original Nintendo Wii game and in the newly released Nintendo Switch re-release.
In this new guide of The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword we will see just how and where to get the fantastic Hylia Shield.
How to unlock the Hylia Shield in The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword
To get the Hylia Shield in The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword, first, you need to get to the point in the story where Link helps the Thunder Dragon in Ranel’s Gorge.
Once this is done, the Dragon will offer us some mini-games, including one that will lead us to face the previously defeated bosses in our adventure again. By accepting this challenge (Battle), it will be necessary to defeat at least eight bosses to get the Shield.
When these battles are replayed, bottles cannot be used and only the objects present in the inventory at the time of the encounter with the Dragon will be available.
If you are defeated by a boss you will have to start over, so we advise you to prepare well for this very tough challenge.
If you don’t have room for the Hylia Shield in your inventory, the Thunder Dragon will give you 1000 Rupees, which is the same reward you get if you already have the shield.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is available today on Nintendo Switch and also on Wii.
