Artwork of the Guardian by Yoshitaka Amano.

Guardian (ガーディアン, Gādian?) is a recurring enemy and boss in the Final Fantasy series since its debut in the original Final Fantasy. It is typically a robotic enemy, though this is not always the case, and is often quite powerful.

The Guardian is a palette swap of Soul Cannon fought in the Sealed Temple in the Advance release. It battles with two Wave Cannon attachments.

Final Fantasy VI[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy VI Guardian.

The Guardian is a unique enemy in that it can be fought several times but cannot be killed until the last encounter. As the pinnacle of Magitek machinery, it guards the Imperial Palace in Vector, and later guards the entrance to the city after the Magitek Research Facility is invaded. Kefka brings an escort of Guardians to Thamasa, but dispatches them shortly after arriving. In all of these battles, the Guardian is physically impossible to damage and serves to prevent the player from leaving or entering an area, as it only attacks the party when they attempt to pass it.
