The Shield of Ziegel is a weapon used by Vilgax.
The Shield of Ziegel is a golden gauntlet that Vilgax wore on his left hand, mounted with a yellow gem.
In The Final Battle: Part 2, Vilgax lost the Shield of Ziegel after transforming himself into his giant squid like form.
The Shield of Ziegel (and Vilgax's other weapons) return in The Ultimate Enemy: Part 2, when Vilgax is returned to his normal form. How his armor and weapons returned is unknown.
The gem is able to generate a powerful personal force field to protect its user.
The force field can become a knight-like shield on the arm or a dome/sphere to protect the user's whole body, and is able to defend them from attacks such as Ultimos' punches, Jetray's neuroshock blasts, or the guns of a large spaceship. It was also able to cut clean through that same spaceship.
The Shield of Ziegal can be shattered by Diamondhead's exploding crystal shards.
