The guards are first seen closing the gates after the King and Queen decide to hide Elsa's powers. They are then seen again at a memorial service for the late King and Queen, who both perished in a storm during a sea voyage. They aren't seen again until Elsa commands them to open the gates ("Tell the guards to open up the gate!"). The guards are then seen patrolling the castle during Elsa's coronation and her party. While the kingdom of Arendelle is suffering the eternal winter, they help Hans pass out cloaks so that the citizens can keep warm. When Anna's horse returns without her, Hans announces that she is in danger and needs volunteers to go with him to find her, to which many of the castle guards volunteer. They also serve as Hans' army when he battles Marshmallow, and storm Elsa's ice palace. When Kristoff brings Anna back to Arendelle to cure her ice curse, the guards alert Kai and Gerda so they can help Anna in the castle. They also accompany Hans when he is going to fetch Elsa to have her executed for "treason", only for them all to discover that she has escaped. They are last seen throwing Hans into the cell on the French Dignitary's ship, and escorting the Duke of Weselton and his men back to his ship.
