"Harem Sand Guard" is a common enemy encountered in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

Official Description

"The chain-wielding Sand Creatures have decent speed, plus they possess moderate reach as well. That being said, don't attempt a counter attack against them; other than that, all other fighting techniques should work well. Thee particular Sand Creatures are relatively rare."
—Official Booklet Description[1]


This enemy type usually fights alongside the Harem Sand Creatures. Their appearance and association with the Harem Sand Creatures may mean they were once men of the Sultan's harem before being transformed by the Sands.



Harem Sand Guard are weaker than the Harem Sand Creatures. The Prince can defeat them with a few well placed blows, but they can still deplete a great deal of the Prince's lifebar when given the opportunity. They are vulnerable to wall rebound attacks, just like most Sand Creatures, so it's best to vault over them and attack.
