Royal Guards,[1] also known as Throne Room Guards,[2] are bodyguards dedicated and designated to protect the Royal Family, particularly the king and princess of Hyrule Kingdom.



The Guards seen in the throne room in Ocarina of Time wear royal purple breeches under their plate armor. They also have more ornamental helmets with golden tips.

In Breath of the Wild the Royal Guard wears clothing instead of armor. They wear a blue and read coat with white gloves.
