|Shield of Ziegel|
|First Appearance||Vengeance of Vilgax: Part 1|
The Shield of Ziegel is a weapon used by Vilgax.
It is a golden gauntlet on Vilgax's left hand mounted with a yellow gem.
The gem is able to generate a powerful personal force field to protect himself.
The force field can become a knight-like shield on his arm or a dome/sphere to protect his whole body, and is able to defend him from attacks such as Ultimos' punches, Jetray's neuroshock blasts, or the guns of a large spaceship. It can even let Vilgax cut clean through that same spaceship.
The only thing that was shown to shatter it was Diamondhead's exploding crystal shards.
The Shield of Ziegel, and Vilgax's other weapons return in The Ultimate Enemy: Part 2, when he returns to his normal form. How his armor and weapons returned is at this time unknown.
