Sonic Frontiers are filled with dangerous enemies to take on, from simple enemies to formidable opponents called Guardians. Guardians are some of the toughest enemies for you and each requires specific actions to defeat them. The castle guards are one of the most feared castle guards. These huge flying enemies are like big planes and they will bombard the land around you without mercy. This guide will show you how to defeat the castle guards in Sonic Frontiers.
How to beat the Fortress Guardians in Sonic Frontiers
Fortress Guardians can easily be spotted in the air thanks to their sheer size. These Guardians may not be the size of Strider Guardians, but they do take up a lot of space. When you spot the castle guard, the fight will start by bombing the area with bombs. These bombs have a large area of effect that you can easily attach to if you’re standing under the Fortress Guardian overflight. Stick to the Guardian side to avoid the bombs.
After a short while, the Fortress Guardian will drop to the ground and begin to leave a track of rails. Get down to the rail and jump over it to begin your attack on the Guardian. As you ride the rails behind The Guardian, you’ll be shot with energy balls similar to Squid Guardians. Hope through bars as they appear and disappear to avoid incoming energy attacks. After a while, you will get close enough to the appearance of the attack code.

Attack when the prompt appears to make the Fortress Guardian enter its second phase. During this time, you will be on a small platform and you can attack the Fortress Guardian freely. Deal as much damage as possible during this time. After a while, more bars will appear and you will need to repeat the energy dodge process until you can damage the Guardian again. Once you get close enough again, attack the guard and finish him off.
