Guardian Forces

Guardian Forces (GFs) can be junctioned to your characters. Junctioning GFs will give that character access to range of abilities and magic junctions according to the abilities that the Guardian Force has learned. Guardian Forces are the “summons" in Final Fantasy VIII and are therefore very similar to the Summon Materia found in Final Fantasy VII and the Eidolons in Final Fantasy IX.

Once you receive each Guardian Force you should ensure that you focus on having it learn its most useful and powerful abilities which are outlined in each of the GF profiles below. Check out the tips and tricks section on Earning Fast Ability Points (AP) at Cactuar Island in order to learn Guardian Force abilities much faster.
