- "The Sheikah of ancient Hyrule developed this as a weapon to combat Ganon, but it was destroyed during the Great Calamity. Ages of weather and neglect have left it in a state of disrepair. Approach with caution; some of these derelict models have been known to awaken from stasis and attack when approached."
- — In-game description
Decayed Guardians are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are immobilized battle-damaged versions of Guardian Stalkers, missing most, if not all, of their legs. Most of them are inactive, but if Link gets too close, they may reactivate and try to attack. They are less durable compared to Stalkers, Turrets and Skywatchers. Some of them are located around Hyrule Field and the Eastern Abbey on the Great Plateau. They are among the first Guardians encountered by Link.
Multiple Decayed Guardians can be found in the Forgotten Temple.
