The Royal Guards are a pair of masculine monsters who are part of the Royal Guard. They first appear in Hotland, blocking the player's way under Undyne's orders, even if the former befriended the latter. Undyne is unable to help, as she earlier convinced them that humans possess the power to control minds and that they shouldn't trust her if she defends a human.
Frisk later meets them in Hotland again, where the two Soldiers attempt to protect the player from a human, though they soon discover that Frisk is in fact the human they were warned about, and they will proceed to (rather apologetically) attack them. Frisk is able to spare them by making RG01 confesses his feelings to RG02. They are later seen at the Nice Cream shop eating nice cream, having bought the last of the vendor's supplies.
They appear earlier in Genocide, where they will attempt to avenge Undyne, but to no avail.
In the True Pacifist Ending, they are free alongside the rest of the Underground, although it is not stated exactly they are up to, instead leaving it up to the player's imagination.
