Cave Guardian is a minor character in the film The Book of Life. He is the guardian to the Cave of Souls who resides at the edge of the Land of the Remembered.


The Cave Guardian is the guardian at the entrance of the Cave of Souls. Manolo, Carmen and Luis pass through, after Manolo earns the right to be judged and passes the judgement.


  • When Manolo passes the judgement, the Cave Guardian says his heart is "pure and courageous". This is the same as the Old lady's blessing Manolo received when he was young.
  • The role of the Cave Guardian is similar to the role of the Tiger-God in the Disney movie "Aladdin".
