The Superguard is a move used in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. It is a more advanced version of a Guard. It stops any attack from doing any damage at all, and any direct-contact moves will be returned to the attacker, causing the enemy one Heart Point of damage. This counterattack damage does not stack with other counterattack effects such as being electrified. On indirect-attacks, the Superguard will simply negate all damage, with the exception of a Pokey's body segment throw attack, which will send the body segment back to the Pokey and cause the same amount of damage the attack would've done to Mario or his partner. It will also block any status effects from an enemy attack. X-Yux's immobilizing ability can only be blocked by a Superguard.
Despite being incredibly useful, it is even harder to execute than a Guard, requiring a press of 3/60 of a second before contact compared to a Guard's 8/60. If done correctly, Mario or his partner will spin around and words will pop out next to them saying "Great!".
