Shieldy Gnome is an enemy in Infinity Time and the Trials of Gnomus in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. It has a higher amount of health than the normal Gnome because of its shield, making it the Gnome equivalent of both the Screen Door Zombie and the Wood Shield Weed. Shieldy Gnomes attack by rushing the player similar to a regular Gnome, the only differences being it walks a bit slower, and that it uses its shield to attack. Shieldy Gnomes also can toss a small projectile at a range, similar to a Weed's Seed Spit or Zombie's Rock Hurl. Once the shield is destroyed, it becomes a regular Gnome. However, the shield can be bypassed by shooting the head or the back.
- It is unknown how a Shieldy Gnome acquires a hammer after its shield is destroyed.
- There is a rare glitch that occurs if the shield is charged at, the Gnome will freeze mid-knockback. While in this state, it does not move at all, but can still shoot the small projectiles.
