The Shield Enemy[from internal data] is a large enemy which first appeared in Kirby Star Allies. As its name implies, it is a shield-wielding enemy, though its shield is initially split into two halves.

Two variants of this enemy exist, with one type wielding a burning shield and the other wielding a shield made of ice. Aside from this distinction, they are both fundamentally the same, and attack by charging at Kirby and his allies. If hit with most forms of attack, the Shield Enemy will stop and combine its shield together to defend. Sustained damage will eventually break the shield, but it will take many hits before doing so. The shield has 169 HP, tied with mid-bosses. (For reference, a Star Bullet does 52 damage.) Once disarmed, the Shield Enemy only sits in place with 1 HP, bearing a fearful expression.

However, should an opposing element be used on the shield (Sizzle on the ice shield; Blizzard/Bluster/Splash/Artist on the fire shield), it will break immediately, destroying the enemy altogether (unlike Anger Masker). Kirby can also inhale the shield if given enough time to do so, and can swallow it for the Fire or Ice abilities based on type. From there, the defenseless Shield Enemy can also be inhaled.
