Flash Shield, Iseult

"Perfect Guard" (かんぜんぼうぎょ Kanzen Bōgyo,かんぜん ガード Kanzen Gādo, also known as "Perfect Defense", "Complete Guard", and "Absolute Guard" (see Trivia) in the anime) is an official term introduced in Booster Set 1: Descent of the King of Knights which refers to cards with a special ability to guard during an attack. During deck construction, you can only include up to four "Perfect Guard" cards due to the "Sentinel" ability they all have.

"Perfect Guard" units all have 0 printed shield. However, they have an ability that activates when they are placed on (GC). By discarding a card from their hand, the player may choose one of their units that is being attacked, and that chosen unit cannot be hit by the attack until end of the battle, no matter how much power the attack has.

Originally, Perfect Guard units required that the card discarded and unit protected both be of the same clan as the Perfect Guard units. Starting from Booster Set 16: Legion of Dragons & Blades, they no longer have this restriction, due to the new Clan Fight regulations making it redundant. However, some Perfect Guard units still have sub-clan restrictions.

G Booster Set 1: Generation Stride introduces a new variant of Perfect Guards, called "Perfect Guard G". They include a bonus or other abilities in addition to the Perfect Guard ability, such as Holy Knight Guardian and Hoop Master for example. Blue Storm Shield, Homerus is another new variant of "Perfect Guard G", which is exclusive for a sub-clan.

Prior to V Booster Set 01: Unite! Team Q4, Perfect Guards were all Grade 1 cards with 6000 Power. Now, Draw Triggers can also be Perfect Guards, and Grade 1 Perfect Guards have at least 7000 Power.

The Imaginary Gift "Protect" gives the player a pseudo-card in their hand that can be used as a Perfect Guard.
