This article is in need of a few pictures. Perhaps you can help by uploading a picture of iOS shield sprite.

This is a list of all shields, helmets, and body armor in the game Final Fantasy VI. In the SNES version, all Evasion bonuses have no effect due to the Evasion Bug. This has been fixed in the Advance version of the game. Note that many shops in the game change their inventory over the course of the game; thus many of the equipment pieces listed on this page as being sold in a location will not be available for purchase at all times.

ShieldsEdit

FFVI Shields Sprites

Shields in this game do not have a set appearance; the shield sprite that appears when an attack is blocked with a shield depends on what is being blocked. The first shield in the picture below is the one used to block physical attacks and enemies' special attack. If a magic spell and/or an enemy spell is blocked by a shield, it takes on the palette of the spell being blocked. This no longer occurs in the Android/iOS versions.
