Unused shield[edit | edit source]

FFV Shield Icon iOS.png

There is a single unused shield found within the game's code. The Hematic Shield can be used if the player uses a cheat code to acquire it. This shield would have fit in neatly with the Bone Mail, Thornlet, and the Cursed Ring, as it shares the combination of having high stats and a big drawback. It would have also shared its annoyance of being auto-equipped all the time.
