First appearance

Paper Mario: The Origami King (2020)

The Guard Plus is an accessory in Paper Mario: The Origami King, and one of three to come in multiple separate variants, of which only one can be equipped at a time. It takes on the appearance of a keychain, modeled after the shell of a Koopa Troopa, and is painted either in bronze, silver, or gold to signify its effectiveness, alongside a small increase in size with each variant. In battle, Mario can equip this accessory to reduce the amount of damage he takes from enemy attacks. Its variants are sold by Fun, Funky, and Functional vendors across the game.

The standard bronze variant of this accessory can be bought on Picnic Road just outside of the Earth Vellumental Temple. The first upgrade, the Silver Guard Plus, is available for purchase in Shroom City, while the strongest variant, the Gold Guard Plus, can be obtained from a shop in Shangri-Spa.
