Fantastic! :)

So the last shield is just a Hylian Shield, the same kind of shield that is just the normal shield in most Zelda games. How awkward and dull, just like how the last sword is the regular master sword. Then again the whole game was a massive let down so this isn't surprising.

Though this is the Hylian Shield's Origin.

Why do we need to know the origin for some shield you can buy very early on in Ocarina of Time? And having "origins" of anything seems just like fanservice to those who kept trying to make up stupid timeline theories when the creators never gave a crap about it and treated each new Zelda game that had a new Link as a whole new story.

Maybe because it's the iconic zelda shield? And having a game that is the furthest in the past, knowing the origins for a lot of these things is cool. I know the time line thing doesn't make sense but I find it interesting.

Yep, you'll have to go through a boss challenge to get it.

Tru dat. I used the Goddess Shield until then, because it looks the most like the Hylian Shield.

I thought the Goddess shield looked sorta odd. I like the sacred and divine shields better xD

Well from a gameplay perspective the Goddess Shield is the best because it's immune to fire and lightning and has enough durability to function effectively.

I completely forgot to go get the Hylian Shield, I fought demise with a Goddess Shield and my pimped out Master Sword.

Now we know that the bird holding the triforce in the Hylian Shield is a Loftwing.

I thought it was the Royal Crest J:

Yes, but now we know what the bird in the crest is.
RoyalFenikkusu's avatar
I thought it was a Phoenix or an eagle ?

There are also phoenixes in Skyward Sword's water temple.

I feel kind of silly for only seeing the patten in the shield upgrades now. I noticed a while back all the initial shields have a bird foot. But only now I see the first upgrades have bird wings, or a pair of birds with wings out. And the final upgrade seems to represent wind. So I guess it represents Earth, Flight, and Sky (or heavens). I get the feeling that pattern holds some kind of significance.

The humans originally came from the surface (Earth), the goddess sent them to the sky (Flight), and now they live on Skyloft (Sky). This what you had in mind?
