The Back Shield is an item originating from Kid Icarus: Uprising. In the Super Smash Bros. series, it appears as an item in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. When it is picked up, it appears behind the fighter and protects them from most attacks from behind; it does not defend, however, from grabs and piercing moves. The more it is attacked, however, the less time the shield remains active. The Back Shield stays behind the player no matter what direction they are facing.

If you pick it up, it will attach itself to you, protecting your back from most threats. It won't stop grabs or piercing attacks, however, and it only lasts so long before vanishing.
Flag of Europe.png A floating shield from Kid Icarus: Uprising. Pick it up and it'll protect you from attacks from behind. It's not perfect, though, as it can't block grabs or piercing attacks. Still, it'll block any standard attacks until it eventually disappears, so it's a pretty useful thing to get your hands on!
