A Metal Shield Moblin at Skipper's Retreat. (left), Run on top of their shield, then poke them from behind. (right)

This is a stronger version of the Wooden Shield Moblin, which carries an unbreakable shield.

Location Spoils
Eldin Volcano, Skipper’s Retreat Rupees

How to Defeat

Obviously, breaking their shield is no longer an option and they’re quite reactive despite their size. To take them down easily, run straight towards their shield. You’ll jump over the Moblin–at which point, you can continuously poke their butts (they have lots of HP!) or just carry on with your adventure.

You are Link, a resident of Skyloft–a floating village in the vast sky. For ages, you’ve been training at the Knight Academy and, today, the day of your graduation has arrived. While your life thus far has been peaceful, soon nothing will be the same again, when your beloved friend, Zelda, is stolen from you…

Our strategy guide for The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword (HD) contains all the necessary knowledge to search for and rescue Zelda, such as a full walkthrough with detailed maps. Plus every hero needs a rest; if you want to grab all the collectables and fix other people’s problems (sidequests), we can help you with that too!

Newly added:

  • Revised and re-structured the walkthrough to make it more accessible.
  • Added dozens of useful maps.
