Guard Plus
"Decreases damage received during battles."

First appearance

Paper Mario: The Origami King (2020)

The Guard Plus is an accessory in Paper Mario: The Origami King. It takes on the appearance of a keychain, modeled after the shell of a Koopa Troopa, and it painted either in bronze, silver, or gold to signify its effectiveness, alongside a small increase in size. It is one of only three accessories to have multiple variants that are separate from one another, allowing the player to mix and match to suit their playstyle; however, only one variant can be equipped at a time.

The main function of this accessory is to reduce the amount of damage Mario takes from enemy attacks in battle, though it only works when he is actively blocking them. The bronze variant is purchasable outside the Earth Vellumental Temple, and is the weakest and most inexpensive in the game. The Silver Guard Plus can be bought near the entrance of Snif City, while the Gold Guard Plus, which is the strongest in the game, is available in Shangri-Spa.
