The Guardian is a Shield-type ARMS weapon with the Electric attribute.[1][2]

Description[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Function[edit]

"These shield ARMS are steadily advancing stalwarts that can support a wide range of both offensive and defensive fighting styles!"
Official Description


  • The Guardian is slow but can block any ARMS no matter the weight.
  • The ARM requires two punches before it returns to the user. The first punch sends out the Guardian, dealing moderate damage on contact. The second punch causes it to move forward slightly faster, turning its lights purple from the standard blue appearance.
