This article is about a Miraculous tool. This article is related to the Turtle Miraculous.

The Shield is the tool of the Turtle Miraculous.

It is used by Nino Lahiffe when he is lent the Turtle Miraculous to become Carapace.


In Carapace's possession, the shield is large, round and flat. The outer side of the shield is dark green, while the inner side is light green with indented lines going from the edge into the center of it.

In Jade Turtle's possession, the shield possesses a conical shape and, when not in use, it is used as a hat.


The shield is shown to be extremely durable, able to withstand multiple direct hits from Anansi with seemingly no damage. It can even handle lightning, Pharaoh's punches, and Riposte's sword, as seen in Mayura (Heroes' Day - Part 2). The Turtle Miraculous' superpower, Shell-ter, involves the shield, with the user holding up the shield to generate the force field[1] which is an indestructible barrier to defend the user and others. However, Carapace has been seen utilizing the power without the use of the shield. When not in use, the shield can be carried on the Turtle Miraculous holder's back, as seen in concept art with Carapace and in "Anansi".[1]

Jade Turtle, however, wears the shield on his head similar to an Asian conical hat, a homage to his Chinese heritage. While not yet seen, the shield can be used as a communicator in some manner.[2]





  • The hand shield was first revealed when concept art of Carapace carrying the tool on his back was shown in a press release video on August 31, 2017.[1]
  • The shield is the third Miraculous tool that isn't used as a mode of transportation, following Rena Rouge’s flute and Hawk Moth's cane.
  • It's the first Miraculous tool used as a tool and accessory.
  • It's befitting that the tool of the Turtle Miraculous is a shield because a tortoise and/or turtle's shell is one of the toughest defenses in nature.
