Mighty Guard is a Blue Magic spell the Blue Mage can learn. It casts Protect, Shell and Float on the party simultaneously, all at the cost of 72 MP. It can be learned from either Azulmagia, Shinryu, Neo Shinryu, Ironclad or Stingray.

Because Mighty Guard targets the caster, the party can cast Reflect on the opponent and have it bounce onto the party. Otherwise the party can control or confuse the enemy, though the Stingray is the only enemy susceptible to them. The player may also use the spell by catching and releasing a Crystelle, though a Blue Mage cannot learn it from this.
