The Shield Attack is an attack that Link can perform in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Wii and Nintendo GameCube. It is the second skill that Link can learn in the game, though it is not required. To make Link do the shield attack, thrust the nunchuck controller toward the TV while pressing down on Z. Once you do, the shield will hit the enemy, thus stunning it. This will allow you to have easy access to destroy the opponent.
