"You have SO many layers of defense in this game to try and keep you going. First, you have SHIELDS. This game takes place in 20,000 A.D. Who would've thought we might invent a shielding system for our ships by then?"
― Ross Scott/Accursed Farms on one of the player's ships. (Ross's Game Dungeon: Tyrian)

Also Called

  • Barrier Generation
  • Energy Barrier Generation
  • Flyrogenesis
  • Force-Field Barrier
  • Deflection Field
  • Shield Generation
  • Protection Bubbles
  • Ray Shields
  • Shielding


User can create a shield, wall, or a field formed from energy, elements, the environment, or by manipulating smaller items to form a greater whole.

Force-fields aren't usually impenetrable and can be removed by energy drain or extreme force. Some users are also able to throw shields away from themselves or to catch things with them, while other users may be able to create them into any shape.




Universal Differences

Some universes consider Energy Constructs to be the building block of force-fields.


  • May be limited on the size/shape/duration of their barriers.
  • May not be able to maintain barriers under stress.
  • Attacks on the barriers may cause equivalent damage to user's mind or body.
  • May require concentration.
  • Some targets may not be held in or contained by barriers.
  • Some targets may be immune to barrier restrictions.
  • Airtight barriers may cause asphyxiation from prolonged use.
  • May only be able block certain types of attacks.
  • Those with Absolute Strength are infinitely strong, meaning they are capable of obliterating force-fields.
  • Weak against users with Shield Break and Defense Break.
