The Back Shield in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
|First appearance||Kid Icarus: Uprising (2012)|
|Effect||Protects the fighter from most attacks from behind|
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.
