Puppet Guards are regular enemies in Shadow Hearts that appear in Wuhan Temple Ruins. They look like undead versions of the Japanese Guards encountered previously. Their skin has turned burnt and their posture makes it so they cannot use their weapons.
The spirit of soldiers who have been killed in unclean ways. Although they carry guns, their tortured souls no longer even recall how to use them.
These creatures are based on a cross between Zombies which regularly appear across the Horror Genre, and the Japanese Guards.
