In Sonic Generations, this is available in some missions and as a Skill for Classic Sonic.|
|Lightning Shield||An electric barrier.||In Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles, this shield attracts rings and gives electricity immunity to Sonic, Tails and Knuckles. It also gives Sonic a double-jump. If the player enters the water with the Lightning Shield, the water will flash for a split second and the shield will disappear. In Sonic Generations, this is available in some missions and as a Skill for Classic Sonic.|
|Gold Shield||A gold shield.||This shield is used in Sonic 3D and allows Sonic to perform the Blast Attack, a simpler Homing Attack.|
