Nazarick Elder Guarders (ナザリック・エルダーガーダー) are one of two sub-classes of undead related to Nazarick Old Guarders, alongside Master Guarders.
Nazarick Elder Guarders resemble helmeted skeletons wearing identical breastplates, draped in tattered red cloaks.
Nazarick Elder Guarders are a special kind of undead that originate from the Great Tomb of Nazarick. They are part of Nazarick's defense system, tasked with defending the dungeon from any invaders.

After Cocytus' failure in annihilating the Lizardmen Alliance of the Great Lake, Ainz decided, through the convincing of Cocytus and Demiurge, to change his plan from destruction to occupation. Thus, he called forth Nazarick Elder Guarders alongside 3000 Nazarick Old Guarders and Nazarick Master Guarders.
It is unknown how powerful they are compared with the Old Guarders, but they wield bucklers and bastard swords. One Nazarick Elder Guarder is at least stronger than a mithril-ranked adventurer.
- In the Anime and Manga, they are also depicted wielding shields.
