The guardian is a zerg long-range bomber.
The guardian is evolved from the mutalisk and thought to be based on the nesting form of the mantis screamer. It possesses a thicker carapace than its counterpart and attacks by lobbing explosive globs of acid. The guardian is much slower than the mutalisk however, and was often designated to guard larvae.
Despite being devastating in terrestrial combat, guardians are next to useless in space combat.
Guardians were replaced by brood lords following the Brood War. A number of them were utilized by Amon in the End War, as they were taken under his control along with the feral zerg of Aiur. Feral guardians remained on Tarsonis years after the conflict.
