— In-Game Description

The Deku Shield is an item in Ocarina of Time. It is the first shield Link acquires in the game. It is required in order to see the Great Deku Tree, along with the Kokiri Sword, because Mido will not let Link pass unless he is properly equipped. It is child-sized, therefore can only be used as a child. It costs 40 Rupees at the Kokiri Shop and 50 Rupees from Business Scrubs.


The red emblem on it is the symbol of the Kokiri, and it is the shape of the gold trimming on the Kokiri's Emerald.

The Deku Shield is made of tough, hard wood, and it gives great protection. Unfortunately, because it is made of wood, it burns instantly when it comes in contact with fire.

If the shield burns up, Link can purchase a new one, or find them in treasure chests hidden throughout Hyrule, including one in the Dodongo's Cavern.
