The Shield Pawn (シールドポーン Shīrudo Pōn?) is an enemy that appears in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood. It is an old model of Badniks which was used by the Nocturnus Clan.


Following Dr. Eggman's presumed death and the Nocturnus Clan's attempt to escape from the Twilight Cage, the Shield Pawns were found by the Nocturnus Clan, who took control of them and began using them as a part of their own forces.

The Shield Pawns can only be encountered in Blue Ridge Zone and Metropolis. Their basic attack is punching their opponents with their fists. Their POW moves are Shields Up (ぼうぎょたいせい! Bōgyotai sei!?) which deceases damage from opponents significantly, and Quake (クエイク Kueiku?) which damages all opponents at the same time and can inflict Stun. They also come in a stronger variant called Shield Pawn Mk. II.
