The Baron Guardsman (also known as the Guard, BaronGuard, or Baron Guard), is a recurring enemy in the series.
This enemy uses the spells Pig as a counter to magic attacks and Mini as a counter to physical attacks, but can be taken down with regular melee attacks, taking 4× damage from Silence-related weapons.
In the Wii version, it is a moderately powerful enemy, but can be defeated with the use of Lightning-elemental items such as Zeus's Wrath and Heavenly Wrath with minimal worries. However, in the PSP version this weakness is not present.
Guardsman is a rank used instead of private in some military units that serve as the official bodyguard of a sovereign or head of state. It is also used as a generic term for any member of a guards unit of any rank.
