The Shield is a recurring powerup in the Sonic Boom video games. A defensive power-up, it envelopes the playable character in a spherical barrier which protects the wearer from taking damage once.

DescriptionEdit

The Shield are sphere-shaped bubbles that has the ability to negate damage taken from enemies and different kinds of damage-inflicting level hazards once. After receiving a damaging blow, the Shield disappears and the player usually flies slightly backwards without taking damage, meaning the player will not lose Rings or be defeated if they are hit without Rings. Shields will not protect the player from falling into bottomless pits or getting crushed however.

The Shield can in most cases be obtained by breaking/touching item boxes displaying the Shield's icon in their respective games. Once obtained, the Shield will surround the playable character until it is broken or the level is completed.

The Shield's color has varied between games without explanation: Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal depicted it as translucent with a yellow tint while Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom depicted it as green.
