It is an immensely durable shield, easily among the top tier in each game it appears in.
The Liquid metal shield has a defence bonus of +60, and casts Snub when used as a tool in battle. In the remakes of IV, it also cuts fire and ice breath damage by 40 points. In the NES version, you can get the Metal Babble Shield for 50,000 coins at Endor's Casino, and can be equipped by Cristo, Mara, Brey, and Female Hero. In the DS, Android, and iOS versions, the Liquid metal shield is no longer sold at Endor's Casino, but there's only one shield in the game, and it can be only obtained by King Minikin if you have over 52 mini medals. It can be equipped by the Hero, Ragnar, Kiryl, Borya, Maya, and Meena.

This shield is generally considered the most difficult item to acquire in the game due to high randomness associated with winning it by playing Tombola. Note that the player must win the special prize twice in order to receive it.
