INDEX

GFs

Final Fantasy as a series is known for its use of summoned monsters. These have different names in various games, and in Final Fantasy VIII they are known as GFs: Guardian Forces. In FF8, you can junction GFs to each character, allowing that character to use several from a pool of abilities that junctioned GFs offer, including the Junction: GF ability which allows you to summon a GF in battle. After being summoned, a GF's HP and action bar will replace your own for one turn, at the end of which the GF will unleash its own specific technique. Some GFs can also be 'Boosted' in battle, after the Boost ability has been learned: by pressing and holding the Select button on the PS controller, you can repeatedly hit Square to Boost your GF's attack. The longer the GF's movie sequence, the more time you have to Boost its strength (thus, a GF such as Eden is great for Boosting).

The in game description (accessed via the Study Panel in Squall's home room) is as follows:

[GF (Guardian Force)]
A GF is an independent energy force. By combining it with para-magic, it is possible to control tremendous energy. Memory loss is a possible side effect, but this has not been proven as of yet.

You can use this section to get to know a GF. I provide data about the GF's name origins, abilities, attacks, acquisition details, and more.
