The Liquid metal shield is a rather rare shield in the Dragon Quest series, having been supplanted by the Metal king shield in Dragon Quest V. It is an immensely durable shield, easily among the top tier in each game it appears in. It bears the emblem of a liquid metal slime at the center.
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, players can obtain the shield for 50,000 coins at Endor's casino, and can only be equipped by Borya, Kiryl, Maya, and Meena. It is the most protective shield in the game, being even stronger than the Zenithian shield.
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 from King Minikin for turning in 52 mini medals. It can now be equipped by the Hero, Ragnar, and Psaro.

This shield is generally considered the most difficult item to acquire in the game due to high randomness associated with winning it by playing the tombola game held within Castle Avalonia. Note that the player must win the special prize twice in order to receive it. It increases the Hero's defence by+10 and can be sold for 8,000.
