The Tempest shield (formerly Wind God Shield & Aeolus' shield) is a recurring shield in the Dragon Quest series. Engraved with the face of a furious god, it blows away whole swaths of enemies with the strength of Zephyrus himself.

While several guides state that the shield casts Poof on all enemies, the effect actually uses Whack's instant death element to check enemy resistance. The confusion comes from the fact that enemies blown away do not give experience or gold.
