The Sheikah of ancient Hyrule developed this as a weapon to combat Ganon. This flying model is an improvement over the walking type, capable of either attacking or surveying from the air. Destroying the propeller will ground it.

Guardian Skywatchers are a flying type of Guardian. They scan their environment with a red searchlight and will begin charging their laser upon locating Link. Many Guardian Skywatchers patrol around Hyrule Castle. Link must use aerial tactics to defeat them, either by getting close with the Paraglider or shooting Arrows. They fly with the use of propellers, which can be damaged to take them down.


  • Guardian Skywatchers are inverted Guardian Turrets with the bolts on their half dome being replaced with propellers.[2]
