P is for Protectors is the sixteenth episode of season 2, and the forty-second episode overall of the TV series.


Nerissa and her Knights of Destruction attack Zamballa, a world of purple foliage with a population of moving trees, disguised as the Guardians, and when W.I.T.C.H. arrives to stop them, they are forced to fend off the Zamballians and their leader, Queen Kadma the former Guardian of Earth.

Also, Taranee is in a vicious mood because of her mother's dislike of her boyfriend, Nigel which extends to falsely accusing them both of robbing a restaurant.


  • Every second-season episode has a clear focus on one of the five main characters. This episode is one of 4 in the season to focus on Taranee Cook.
  • Kadma makes her first proper appearance in this episode (her appearance in K is for Knowledge doesn't really count because she was only seen in a flashback).
  • This episode also marks the first appearances of Zamballa and its inhabitants Ironwood, Bitterroot and Bowbreaker.
  • This is the first time two Guardians of different generations have been shown to combine their powers: Kadma and Cornelia combined their joint power over the earth to heal the jungle of Zamballa from Nerissa's attack, and later they use Green speaking to sense Ironwood's life force. It is also the first time a former Guardian actually worked with the new Guardians in battle as Nerissa (in disguise) and Yan Lin have only indirectly helped or provided advice, whilst Halinor was going to absorb the Guardians' powers in N is for Narcissist.
