Sir Roseguardin is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest IV as a boss monster, he is essentially a green restless armour charged with the task of protecting Rose.


Psaro hired or otherwise created him for the sole purpose of protecting Rose from anyone who managed to infiltrate the small fortress he built for her. The party must kill him to speak with Rose. Though just a palette swap of a regular knight enemy, he is significantly more powerful. Moreover, he uses the Sphere of Silence to prevent the party from casting spells.

Haunts at:

He is an optional boss (called Sir Roseguardin) in Chapter 5 that can be defeated to (re)gain the Sphere of Silence. Depending on the version of the game, Sir Roseguardin will no longer be available to battle after either the defeat of Estark or the completion of Chapter 5. The latter case is rather strange as the humans who kidnapped Rose would have had to get past Sir Roseguardin, but he will still be standing after the kidnapping already took place and is somehow completely unaware that the one he is supposed to protect is no longer present.
