Royal Guards are bodyguards dedicated and designated to protect the Royal Family, particularly the king and princess of Hyrule Kingdom.[citation needed][1]


Ocarina of Time

The Guards seen in the throne room in Ocarina of Time wear royal purple breeches under their plate armor and graves. They also have more ornamental helmets with golden tips and fancy purple spears. Several guards are depicted guarding the King of Hyrule in his throne room. They can be seen through the window in the Courtyard. If Link shoots a slingshot at the western window in the courtyard, a royal guard will scold him. [2]

Ultimately they were either killed or forced to retreat when Ganondorf overthrew the castle. Several broken spears and helmets can be found around the entrance to Ganon's Castle.

Twilight Princess

Several guards with ornate shields protected Princess Zelda in Hyrule's last stand against the Twilight invasion. When the Shadow Beasts stormed the Throne Room, the guards were violently slain.

In certain areas of Hyrule Castle, Wolf Link can detect the ghosts of the royal guard and they will point Link where he needs to go.

Breath of the Wild

In Breath of the Wild, the Royal Guard wear clothing instead of armor. They wear a blue and red coat with white gloves. In one of the memories Link regains, Royal Guards are shown standing around King Rhoam during his ceremony to entitle the Champions. Several weapons and clothing of the Royal Guard are scattered around the ruined castle. There are Royal Guard's Swords, Royal Guard's Claymores, Royal Guard's Halberds, Royal Guard's Shields, Royal Guard's Bows, Royal Guard Uniform, Royal Guard Cap, and Royal Guard Boots.
