The Fire Guardian is a boss in Silent Hill: Book of Memories. The player will encounter this boss after completing Zone 3.
The player will be rewarded with the Fire Sword after defeating this boss.
The Fire Guardian is a large beast in many ways resembling a stereotypical fire demon. Its muscular physique is covered in scales, and he has four prominent horns on its head. Beneath its first set of arms are pincer-shaped protrusions that act similarly to a second set of limbs. Its ribs protrude from the abdomen.
The monster attacks by spewing flamethrowers from its hand, by leaping around its lair, and by summoning a large blast of fire from within its body. When it is using its flamethrowing, a fiery ring encircles its location to prevent it from taking damage.
The Fire Guardian symbolizes the subconscious resolution of Derek Copeland. Their battle is a metaphorical one; symbolizing the struggle between the player's will and Derek's, both attempting to assert their dominance over the other in order to change reality.
- The Fire Guardian's appearance may have been influenced by Alessa's Dream, the final boss of Silent Hill: Origins.
