"The Sheikah of ancient Hyrule developed this as a weapon to combat Ganon. This flying model is an improvement over the walking type, capable of either attacking or surveying from the air. Destroying the propeller will ground it."
Hyrule Compendium

Guardian Skywatchers are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. They are the third most common type of the Guardian enemies. They are flying Guardians found in certain parts of Hyrule, throughout the Hyrule Field and Akkala Highlands regions, and particularly south of Tabantha Tower or at Lomei Labyrinth Island. They have the same HP, weapon, and body to the Guardian Stalkers. If Link gets into their red spotlight or attacks them from behind, they will start attacking. Link can slow or immobilize them by destroying their propellers, making it easier to deal with. Once its propellers are gone, they are vulnerable to melee attack.

Like other Guardians, they are extremely vulnerable to Ancient Arrows and cause the Master Sword to take on its glowing "True" full power state when near Guardian Skywatchers due to being corrupted by Calamity Ganon's influence.
