Over the years of BIONICLE we have had many, many shields. Gresh's, Nuparu's, Kopaka's various shields, Raanu, Lhikan, etc.Whose is your favorite?I think Gresh wins for me, it looks fantastic and can work as blades.

I've never been a fan of shields that had many holes in them, as they don't seem like they'd be either sturdy or effective. As such, I've always been fond of the Skrall shield and Kopaka Nuva's shield, though between the two I prefer the former.

Lhikan's shield to me is the best. Not only is it very big. But it doubles as two swords and a hoverboard to boot.

Lhikan's always been my favorite, because of its classical-like shape and design, but these years I came to love Gresh's, too, which looks more "wild" with that shape. So, I'd say Gresh's and Lhikan's ex-aequo.

Tricky question, I prefer Lhikans shield, but its size means I don't actually use it very often. So I'd have to go with Kopaka Mata's shield. Its size means it works for both Matoran and Toa sized MOCs.

Lhikan's shield. As others have said, it could be split into twin swords and used as a hover board. And I imagine it would be very useful to hit an enemy with it. :)

I hate jumping on the bandwagon, but Lhikan's shield/swords/hoverboard has to be the best. Runner ups would be the Hagah shields.

Mine is probably Nuparu Mahri's shield. It's probably the most protective shield, and seems the most solid. Skrall's is cool, too, but it isn't as big and powerful as Nuparu's. Gresh's shield has a huge hole in the middle, and Lhikan's has two, so I can't say they're very protective. As for parts use, I still like Nuparu's. It has just enough connections to be useful, but not so many that the design of the shield suffers, so it has quite a few uses. Lhikan's are too big, and are hard to use properly. Gresh's have a lot of connection points, so they look a bit hollow. Skrall's is almost impossible to use as anything besides a shield or hat, so it's annoying. So, my favorite is Nuparu's shield.

That depends on whether we are talking aesthetics and versatility in the canon, or IRL in MOCing.I do like the Hagah shields for a more imposing sort of character, while the Kopaka shields look more like bucklers.Most shields have holes however, and as such they don't appeal to me as much.

In the Bionicle universe, it is not metal but air that is most effective at halting the motion of weapons.  Hence, each shield is designed not to provide protection in itself, but rather to organize the air molecules in the most efficient configuration.  That is why there is such an incredible abundance of holes.


...I'm going to have to go with Skrall's.

I would say that I like the Hagah shields the most, though they're pretty much tied with Lhikan's shield.  Coming close behind those two are Nuparu's shield and Kopaka Nuva's shield, because they can actually, y'know, protect the user.  :P
