This shield type is one of two shields in the game that can repel both fire and electricity, along with the [[Hylian Shield]]. It also can gradually repair itself overtime. If it runs out of durability before it can recharge though, it will break. It becomes available for purchase at the [[Gear Shop]] for 500 [[Rupee]]s after the first battle with [[The Imprisoned]]. [[Link]] can use [[Treasure]]s to upgrade this shield to the [[Reinforced Shield]] and the [[Fortified Shield]].

This shield has a higher durability than that of the sacred shield and takes an insane beating. It shares the ability to repair itself with its former version. This shield might seem amazing, but at that point in  the game the enemies do more damage, so it might not really matter. This shield requires 3 [[Ornamental Skull]]s, 2 [[Bird Feather]]s, 1 [[Dusk Relic]], and 100 rupees to upgrade.

This shield is the most durable form of sacred shield. This baby will last crazy long, so it's almost the best shield in the game. This shield requires 4 [[Dusk Relic]]s, 3 [[Bird Feather]]s, 3 [[Monster Horn]]s, 1 [[Blue Bird Feather]], and 100 rupees to upgrade.

The Sacred Shield is a shield that appears exclusively in Skyward Sword. It can be purchased at the Gear Shop[1] within the Bazaar of Skyloft, for a hefty 500 Rupees.[2] It only becomes available once Link has defeated The Imprisoned for the first time.

The Sacred Shield's main selling point is the fact that it repairs itself upon being damaged overtime,[3][4] unlike the wooden and iron shields. However, it is more fragile than the aforementioned shields,[3] needing a lot less damage to break. The Sacred Shield can block all sorts of attacks, including fire, electricity, and curse attacks.[3][5] Furthermore, the Sacred Shield has the special ability of being able to startle Cursed Bokoblins when they see the shield.[6]

The Sacred Shield can be upgraded to the Divine Shield and the Goddess Shield.

Plus, it will automatically repair itself when it sustains damage! It's a little fragile, but that shouldn't be a problem for one as talented and agile as yourself! At a cost of 500 Rupees, it's an investment...but an excellent one! Care to buy it?
    OK! :No, thanks." — Rupin, Skyward Sword.
