— In-Game Description[1]

Overview

The Boko Shield is a shield found in Breath of the Wild. It has a base defense of 3, and is the standard-issue shield for many Red Bokoblins in and around the Great Plateau. The aesthetic is very basic; being entirely wooden and of poor construction, signifying a low durability and defense rating. If this shield is brought to a flame, it will alight, so the player should take care.

The Boko Shield has the lowest durability of any shield in the game, and with a defense of power, only the Pot Lid and Wooden Shield are weaker. With these low statistics, the Boko Shield is a disposable weapon and should only ever be used if it is the only shield Link has in his inventory.

Appearance

The shield is a poorly made wooden shield, being made of a piece of tree bark off the ground. It is painted red with some white designs on the front. Knobs of wood that stick out of the bark are visible on the front of the shield. The back of the shield contains only a leather handhold.

Similar looking shields exist in the form of the Spiked Boko Shield and Dragonbone Boko Shield with bones and spikes attached to the shields, giving them higher strength and durability.
