Mechanical guardian[3] is a very dangerous[4] hostile creature found in underground hidden rooms of all worlds and all biomes.

Behavior[ | ]

The mechanical guardian remains deactivated until a dwarf approaches it. While in the deactivated form, it is immune to any kind of damage.[5] When activated, it slowly pursues dwarfs, which it can do only in a horizontal line, not being able to jump even a one-block high obstacle.

This lack of mobility makes it sort of easy to be killed by dwarfs equiped with ranged weapons. Although, ranged attacks can take a long time to knock it down because it has a special resistances against magic and arrows.[6]
