The Hill Guard is an enemy in the Castlevania series. He is an armored warrior who specializes in fighting on uneven ground.


Hill Guards are knights that patrol stairways and other inclined planes. They move up or down this slant slowly, but then they can perform a fast thrust with their swords either up or down the ramp (in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, they can perform a dash thrust going down the stairs but not up). They cannot step onto ground level, though.
