A Decayed Guardian found in LoZ: BotW.

The Decayed Guardian is a type of Guardian in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.


The Sheikah of ancient Hyrule developed this as a weapon to combat Ganon, but it was destroyed during the Great Calamity. Ages of weather and neglect have left it in a state of disrepair. Approach with caution; some of these derelict models have been known to awaken from stasis and attack when approached.




Strategy Guide/Tips[edit]

  • A Decayed Guardian can only aim and fire from its location at Link. This can make it somewhat easy to avoid the blasts.
  • Usually a single parried blast from the Guardian will destroy it.
