The Protect Ring (守りの指輪, Mamori no Yubiwa?), also known as Protector Ring and Guard Ring, is a recurring armor and accessory in the series. It can be classified either as a ring, or as an armlet. It usually defends against Instant Death or grants the user the Auto-Protect status.


Final FantasyEdit

Ring that guards against instant death.

The Protect Ring is an armlet that protects against Death elemental attacks, has +8 Absorb, and -1% Evade. They can first be bought for 16,000 gil at Gaia. Two more are found in the Flying Fortress, and another in the past version of the Chaos Shrine.

Note that unlike what the description states, they do not resist all Instant KO attacks, only ones that are specifically Death elemental (Death and Kill). Many Instant KO spells and abilities such as Earthquake and Break require alternate resistance protection (Earth and Petrification respectively).

Final Fantasy IIEdit

A ring affording protection against instant death.

The Protect Ring increases Defense by 18. It protects against Instant Death attacks. Protect Ring is one of the items the Lamia Queen drops, and one can also be found in Raqia.

Final Fantasy IIIEdit

The Protect Ring is an armlet that resists Fire, Thunder, Ice, Wind and Light and boosts all stats by two and can be equipped by all the jobs. It can be found in the Temple of Time and Ancients' Maze, and is a rare drop from King Behemoth.

Final Fantasy IVEdit

Ring resistant against fire, ice, and lightning.

The Protect Ring grants resistance to all elements to the wearer. Two are found in the Lunar Subterrane, while additional others may be won from Ahriman and Magic Dragon. It provides +10 Defense, +12 Evasion, +5 Magic Defense, and +10 Magic Evasion.

In the game's original SNES version, when characters equip elemental resistant equipment, they inherently become weak to the opposite element. A character with the Protect Ring is thus weak to Fire and Ice-elemental physical attacks (however, no enemy uses physical elemental attacks so this isn't usually an issue). This is changed in the Advance version where characters are no longer weak against the opposite element.

Final Fantasy IV: The After YearsEdit

The Protect Ring provides 10 Defense, 12 Magic Defense, 5 Evasion, 10 Magic Evasion, and +15 Stamina, as well as resistance to Fire, Ice, and Lightning. It can only be obtained by either finding it in the Subterrane or by winning it from Fiend Dragon.

Final Fantasy VEdit

Ring with same effect as Regen.

The Protect Ring is an accessory and grants the wearer the Auto-Regen status and provides +10 Defense, Magic Evasion, and Magic Defense as well as +1 Weight and +5 Stamina. One can be won from Odin, while others can be found at Istory Falls, Pyramid of Moore, and the Island Shrine, and others stolen from Soul Cannon at the Phoenix Tower.

Final Fantasy VIEdit

Ring enchanted with Protect. Casts Protect on the wearer.

The Protect Ring, also known as Guard Ring, is a relic that grants the user a constant Protect status. It can be bought in Jidoor and Thamasa in the World of Ruin for 5,000 gil.

Final Fantasy VIIEdit

The Protect Ring is a ring that grants the wearer the constant Barrier and MBarrier statuses. One can be stolen from the right neck of Schizo, while additional others must be morphed from Movers.

Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-Edit

The Protect Ring grants Zack constant Barrier and MBarrier statuses. It can be bought from Mythril Mine Trading for 30,000 gil, and can also be obtained by completing mission 7-6-2, 9-3-2 or 9-5-3.

Final Fantasy IXEdit

The Protect Ring is an add-on that halves the damage from all elements, as well as providing +1 Spirit, +2 Defense, +4 Evasion, +3 Magic Defense, and +6 Magic Evasion. It teaches the abilities Half MP, Long Reach, and Mag Elm Null, and can either be bought from Mene for 8,500 points, or synthesized for 40,000 gil, Rebirth Ring, and Dark Matter at Hades's Synthesis shop.

Others can be acquired by completing the Mognet sidequest by fixing Mognet Central, using a Dead Pepper at a mountain crack on the eastern part of the Lost Continent, completing the lost Nero family quest in Lindblum and by answering all of the Ragtime Mouse's questions correctly.

Final Fantasy XEdit

Any of Yuna's rings will take the name Protect Ring when its dominant abilities are Auto-Protect or SOS Protect.

Guardian Ring is an armor for Yuna, obtainable only if any armor has two empty slots and no abilities.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

Weaker than most Final Fantasy incarnations, Protect Ring only gives +1 to Agility, but can cast Protect II when used as an item.

Final Fantasy TacticsEdit

A ring forged from a metal imbued with magick.

The Protect Ring grants immunity to the Sleep and Doom status effects. It can be equipped by any class. It costs 5,000 gil and is available in the shops after the story battle nr. 15 and after viewing the cutscene at Lionel. It can also be found within the Lionel Castle with Treasure Hunter ability as rare item.
