Perfect Guard is a skill that blocks most enemy attacks if a character rises his guard at the exact moment the attack would connect. With each successful Perfect Guard, a small amount of MP and Hearts will be replenished.
In Castlevania: Lament of Innocence, Leon must learn this technique before it can be used, while Hector must first obtain this skill in Castlevania: Curse of Darkness. Additionally, Trevor Belmont starts with this skill available in his own mode in Curse of Darkness.
In Hector's mode in Curse of Darkness, many enemies require the player to successfully perform a Perfect Guard against one of their specific attacks in order to open their stealing windows.
