Earth Guardian is a boss from Final Fantasy IX. The party first encounters it in the Earth Shrine during the event in which the seal on Terra is broken. It is one of the guardians of Terra that guard the seals. Quina and Zidane must fight it to break the part of the seal that it guards.


To make the battle easier, it is recommended to get two pairs of Feather Boots - but don't equip the Auto-Float ability that goes with them, regardless of how smart it sounds when going up against an enemy that uses an Earth attack. The Feather Boots absorb Earth damage, so you will be healed when the Earth Guardian uses Earth Shake.

If Quina has "Mighty Guard", this battle can be won with ease, another good idea is equip "Auto-Regen" and "Auto-Haste" to your team. Zidane should do the damage with his physical attacks, there is nothing good to steal from him. If Quina knows Bad Breath it makes this battle even easier, since he is weak to Darkness and Mini.

The party later fights it in Memoria, in which it is known as as Lich.
