The Guards are Judge Claude Frollo's minions in the 1996 film, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Some of them are seen when they arrest Quasimodo's father for being a gypsy. Others are also seen at the Festival of Fools where they cause the crowd of people to turn on Quasimodo, who was crowned the new King of Fools. The guards do this by throwing tomatoes at him. Frollo sees Esmeralda trying to free Quasimodo fromthe ropes the mob tied him up in (Frollo wanted Quasimodo to stay tied up so that he could teach him a lesson about disobeying him). Esmeralda defies Frollo. Frollo orders the guards to arrest her. Esmeralda uses a magic trick to get away. Frollo orders the search for her.
Esmeralda is found and arrested. Frollo orders guards at every door to ensure that there is no escape for Esmeralda. This plan fails because Quasimodo helps Esmeralda escape without the guards noticing. A guard informs Frollo that the gyspy has escaped and is no where to be found the cathedral. Frollo sends him away. Rudely, Frollo goes mad and accuses people of being in league with gypsies, ordering arrest warrants. Frollo then orders the guards to execute their captain Phoebus for freeing the prisoners from burning that were in a house. Phoebus is rescued by Esmeralda, unknown to Frollo who saw him fall into the water.
Frollo orders the search for Esmeralda. Frollo tricks Quasimodo into leading him to the place of the gypsies. The gysies are arrested by the guards. Then the guards, the heroes, the townspeople, whom Phoebus has rallied, including him and Quasi, who have escaped their prison, and the gargoyle friends, later are fighting. The guards try to flee but Frollo orders some guards to break down the door but are unsuccessful and defeated; they are last seen watching Frollo fight Quasimodo on the balcony of the bell tower.
They reform with Phoebus in The Hunchback of Notre Dame 2. They help him search for Sarousch, and then they arrest Sarousch.
In the Spongebob series, Frollo's Guards reprise their role from the first film, and now serve as Villain League soldiers. it's assumed that since the real ones changed around, these guys may be nega-heartless-clones that were former Villain leage shocktroopers made personally for Frollo.
