This page is about the status effect. For the passive skill, see Guard.

Guard[1] is a status effect that inflicts foes with Special cooldown charge -1 per attack during combat for one turn.

In essence, an afflicted unit behaves as if all opponents possess Icon Class Red Sword.png Guard Sword+. For skills which apply this status effect, see the category page Sources of Guard.

Skill interaction[]

Main article: Skill interaction
  • The "Special cooldown charge -X" effect will stack with the "Special cooldown charge +X" effect.
    • For example, if a unit is affected by both  Guard and  Accelerate Special, the effects will stack and the cooldown will go down without penalty or bonus.
  • If used alongside another source of "Special cooldown charge -X", only the higher of the two charge reductions will apply.
    • This means that if a unit has two "Special cooldown charge -1" effects from two different sources, the battle will play out as if only one "Special cooldown charge -1" effect is active.
  • Skills such as Spd Def Tempo 3.png Spd/Def Tempo 3 and Icon Class Green Axe.png Whirling Grace will neutralize effects that inflict "Special cooldown charge -X" on its user.
When a unit has this status effect, an icon is shown on their sprite on the map.
