Guarding is a recurring mechanic in the Persona series.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Guarding is an option available in the battle menu. If used, the user will have their defense increased against other attacks during that turn, and they'll be protected from being downed against elemental weaknesses.
Persona 5[edit | edit source]
If the user guards, the damage they'll take will be multiplied by x0.4.
