How to Beat Metal Shield Moblin
Metal Shield Moblin runs up to you with a shield dash. Go behind it and slash it down.

While holding their metal shield, sword attacks will not dent it unlike the Wooden Shield variant. Hiding behind their giant shields, they will approach slowly until they get in attacking range, where they will attack you with their long spears.

Climb up the metal shield
