Also Known As Statue of Terror
From Ghouls 'n Ghosts
Type of Character Bosses

Shielder (シールダー) is the first boss in Ghouls 'n Ghosts. At first he appears to be a giant statue of an evil god, but it comes to life and charges madly at his enemies until they are no more. This gigantic monster can detach his head and holds it as a weapon, spewing fireballs at Arthur. Later, Shielder heads held by arms stuck in walls appear in the Demon Realm castle.

In the Master System port, Shielder's head flies on its own instead of being held, and only the Shielder heads appear in the castle.

Shielders also appear in Chapter 14 and 28 of Project ✕ Zone. Their attack is Fireball (火球), spitting three fireballs and finishing with a headbutt punch.
