There are Hylian Shield replicas and then there are Hylian Shield Replicas. The one above fits into the latter and probably could've been used with a certain live-action Netflix series that sadly isn't happening. The team at Baltimore Knife and Sword makes all kinds of armaments for their YouTube series Man at Arms: Reforged, and their latest project is the perennial shield from Nintendo's Legend of Zelda series, along with what NeoGAF posits is a Link to the Past-styled Master Sword. The level of craftsmanship is what separates this gear from what you'd typically see cosplayers brandish at PAX; the Triforce is made of amber and the shield can even withstand a barrage of arrows.

All that to say, you could probably totally kill someone and successfully defend yourself against a moblin offing you with these. Whether or not you could bounce energy blasts back at their attacker and save the kingdom with this shield is anyone's guess, though. Need more? Make sure to check out previous episodes featuring Sauron's mace from Lord of the Rings and Sora's Keyblade from Kingdom Hearts.
