Core Guardian (こる があど, Koru Gaado) is a character from the Valis series and one of Galgear's henchmen in Valis IV.


Valis IVEdit

Core Guardian was one of Galgear's followers. His origins are unknown but it's presumed that he was a robot created by Galgear's forces to be used to expand his regime. Core Guardian was assigned to a hidden section of the Reddish Moon's lab, where he was found by Lena and instantly attacked her, meeting his destruction.

Super Valis IVEdit

Core Guardian's background story remains the same in this adaption of the game, but here he was assigned to protect the Crystal Pillar's core. As in the aforementioned version, he was destroyed by Lena with the core of the pillar itself.


Core Guardian's personality isn't defined as he doesn't have any dialogue in any version of the game. He could probably lack a personality as he is a robot guard.


Core Guardian can move with his hovering jets on his body's base. He uses his spear to attack and the launchers on his back, where he can launch bombs (in the PCE-CD version) and lasers that fly upwards to make them fall on his opponents (in the Super Famicom/SNES version). Finally he can shoot lasers from his eyes.


Core Guardian appeared in all versions of Valis IV. He is the first mini-boss from the last level of the PCE-CD version and the main fifth boss in Super Valis IV at the top of the Crystal Pillar guarding its core.



  • Core Guardian has a slight resemblance to Nornil's first form from the PCE-CD version.
  • Core Guardian's name wasn't known until he appeared in Super Valis IV, where the manual shows his name as described in this article.
  • In Super Valis IV, although if the Crystal Pillar's core is destroyed, the Core Guardian will still be moving without exploding until the transition to the next level starts.
