The Black Shield is a technique that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is the defense matrix utilized by Metal Sonic.


When using Black Shield, Metal Sonic forms an indigo-colored octahedral energy field around him as defense. This shield is strong enough to withstand energy beams without breaking.[1]


Metal Sonic was first seen using the Black Shield to defend himself from Mega Man's attacks.[1]
