The Guardian Helm (プロテクトメット purotekuto metto?, Protect Helmet) (also known as Safe Helm in the SNES/PS version) is headgear in Chrono Trigger, which permanently applies the Protect status to the wearer, permanently reducing physical damage by one third. It can be equipped by all party members. It is interesting to note how this headgear resembles a football helmet.
How to Obtain
There are only two Guardian Helms in the game:
- One can be found by getting the Pendant charged by the Mammon Machine and going to Forest Ruins north of Medina. It is in the box on the left. The chest on the right contains a Swallow which is a katana for Crono - if you get this weapon, you will no longer be able to open the chest with the Guardian Helm, so choose wisely.
- The other Guardian Helm can be acquired by using Ayla's Charm ability on the shell of Elder Lavos Spawn, a boss found in the Black Omen near the end of the game. If you defeat this boss without charming this headgear from his shell and chose to acquire the Swallow from the Forest Ruins, then you won't have any more opportunities to get this helm.
