The big boss shield is a recurring shield in the Dragon Quest series, first introduced in Dragon Quest VIII. This fearsome-looking shield can lower the enemy's defence if used as a tool in battle.


Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

The big boss shield has a defense bonus of +50. It can only be equipped by Yangus. The shield can only be acquired by trading in a Crimson robe to Dodgy Dave in Pickham and can be sold for 12,000 gold. In the 3DS version, it can be upgraded into the Big bad boss shield by combining it with a Goddess shield and Mild cheese with the Alchemy Pot.

Lowers the enemy's defence when used as an item during battle.
