Primal guardians are primal zerg creatures similar to guardians. After the introduction of the primal roach into the primal zerg genome, many primal guardians evolved from primal roaches.[1]

Game Unit

Heart of the Swarm

Primal guardians appear as enemies on Zerus.[2] They also appear as part of Dehaka's pack during the attack on Korhal.[3] Unlike their Swarm counterparts, primal guardians can attack air units.[4]

Co-op Missions

Dehaka can use primal guardians in Co-op Missions. These units evolves from primal roaches.

Dehaka's primal guardians cannot attack air and have different stats than those found in the Heart of the Swarm campaign.
