A pike-wielding guardsman of Eternian Central Command whose First Thrust lands before anyone else can act. It is particularly dangerous when paired with Brave.
The Duchy Pike Guard is an enemy in Bravely Default. Its First Thrust ability allows it to strike at the very beginning of the turn. Thundaga attacks from a Black Mage or Thundaga Blade from a Spell Fencer should dispatch them with little trouble.
