This article is about the common monster. For other types of guard, see Guard (disambiguation).

A guard is a monster found in most major cities in RuneScape Classic. They require level 40 Thieving to pickpocket, and provide 46.75 exp and 30 coins when successful.

During the Biohazard quest, the guard, guarding the gate to southeast Varrock will confiscate vials used in the quest.
