The Recruits are the younger guards that help protect Hyrule Castle in Spirit Tracks. These younger guards are not as experienced and are often very jumpy with their words, trying their best to live up to their Castle Guard elders. They also don't wear the same uniform as the Castle Guards but they can eventually earn one based on their performance.

But once the higher-ups see how good I am, I'll get a regular uniform. Hey, you just made a face! Don't think I didn't notice just because I'm new!" — Recruit, Spirit Tracks.
- ↑ "Just 'cause you're an engineer, it doesn't give you the right to snoop. Even new recruits like me know there are places you're not supposed to go! I hope I get promoted soon. I'm tired of wearing this goofy recruit uniform." — Recruit, Spirit Tracks.
