    -Introduction-
    --------------
    
      Welcome to my second installment of Final Fantasy VIII FAQs. I will be 
    covering the Guardian Forces, what their powers are, where they can be 
    located, and the abilities they carry with them. Each will appear like this:
    
    -(Guardian Force Name)-
    -(Powers/Attack)-
    -(Starting HP/Level)-
    -(Elemental Base)-
    -(Location)-
    -(Starting Abilities)-
    
      Later in the FAQ, I'll tell you how to gain the more elusive GF's like 
    Odin, Gilgamesh, and Phoenix. Hopefully you'll find this FAQ informative and 
    helpful in your quest through Final Fantasy VIII

    -Explanation of The Guardian Froces
    -------------------------------------
    
      Each Guardian Force has it's good and bad elements, but all are powerful 
    enough to help you through the first 3 discs. The further along you are, the 
    better your Guardian Forces will turn out to be. 
    
      Guardian Forces are like people. They get jealous,  exceptionally friendly, 
    and you can name them as you would a pet or a newborn baby. In order to keep 
    them friendly and liking you, you have to concentrate all of your usage on 
    that particular Guardian Force. If you Junction two or more GF's to a 
    character, the usage becomes irregular, and the Guardian Force's will not 
    come as quickly in a battle as they should.
    
      You can teach your Guardian Force's new tricks later in the game with 
    scrolls that you'll find through out the world in your travels. Although on 
    occassion, you will find that you cannot teach a GF something, and need to 
    find Amnesia Greens. Once you have these Green's, feed it to the GF, and the 
    GF will forget an ability of your choice.
    
      I recommend that you take away something that has lost it's usefullness, 
    such as SumMag+10%, when you've already learned SumMag20%.
    
      Also, learn the Boost Ability for your Guardian Forces. Those with long 
    animation times can have their attacking power boosted to 250. To Boost, when 
    the GF animation comes up, hold select, and tap the Square button, but stop 
    when an X crosses over the finger and the button, then resume tapping when 
    the X disappears. I've gotten some super damage (35,000+ pts.) with Eden this 
    way.

      The Card and Card Mod Abilities are two of the best Abilites to have in the 
    beginning of the game. You can turn monsters into Cards with the Card 
    Ability, and then modify those Cards into Items with the Card Mod Ability, 
    try to learn those two Abilities in the beginning of the game to get a jump 
    start.

     Ammo-RF               30                  (Gained at Lvl 10)
    
      The Ammo Refine Ability isn't useful until you have Irvine in your party 
    later on in the game. But the F Mag-RF is good to gain more Fire spells to 
    Junction later to your party members. Strength is this guy's main source, 
    with the Str+20/40% and the Strength Bonus, you should be good to go once you 
    have them all learned for your character.

      Mug is one of the most useful Abilities in the game. Just say the word...it 
    not only sounds cool, but you get rare items from monsters. The Abilityx3 is 
    good to have, allowing not 2, but 3 GF Abilities to your character.

      The most useful Ability in Leviathan's arsenal has to be the Recover, as 
    you can restore a character's HP without ever using Magic. If equipped at the 
    beginning of the game, it can turn a character into a strong magical defense 
    unit.

    -Bahamut-

    -3274 HP/Level 35-
    -Non Elemental-
    -Location: Once you have the Ragnarok spaceship, find the Deep Sea Research 
    Facility in the Southwest Corner of the map. Inside, meet Bahamut and answer 
    his questions correctly. When you win, he will join you.-
    
    The Questions:
    
     Bahamut: "So you wish to challenge me.."
    
     Choose: "It's not our will to fight."
    
     Bahamut: "Begging me for mercy?"
    
     Choose: "Never."
    
     Bahamut: "Damned imbeciles. Why do you wish to fight?"
    
     Choose the hidden option below "None of your business."
    
      That should initiate a fight with Bahamutm however, if you do not do it 
    correctly, you'll face a Ruby Dragon, and be asked the question over again.

      The Rare Item and Abilityx4 is worth taking the time and effort to fight 
    Bahamut. Rare Item is worth it when you want to get every item in the game. 
    Abilityx4 speaks for itself.
    
    
    -Jumbo Cactuar-
    -Attack: 1,000 Needles-
    -1766 HP/Level 20-
    -Non Elemental-
    -Location: The Jumbo Cactuar is on Cactuar Island east of the Centra Ruins. 
    Sometimes, you will see a green thing sticking out of the sand, that would be 
    the Cactuar. When you fight him, be careful of the 1,000 needles attack, it 
    causes 10,000 points of non-elemental damage, which will outright kill a 
    character. Watch the status screen, when it says he is hesistating, DO NOT 
    HIT HIM, he'll run away, and you'll be forced to fight him all over again.-

    buy at dirt cheap prices. Sell High, allows you to sell things at high 
    prices, when they aren't worth it, and Call Shop allows you to call a shop 
    anywhere at any time, and bring up any shop that you've visited in the past.
    
    (Picking up after Eden)
    
    -Advanced Guardian Forces-
    
      These are Guardian Forces that you cannot control or are in your inventory. 
    Some can be summoned by using an item, others show up when they want to.
    
    -Odin-
    -Location: Centra Ruins Quest. Climb the tower and find him in under 20 
    minutes. He'll appear 1 out of 10 battles, but never a boss fight. He uses 
    one attack, which severs the enemies in half. 
    
    -Phoenix-
    -Location: Only available by using the Phoenix Pinion during a battle. It 
    will revive all of the KO'd party members, but only appears every so often.
    
    -Boko the Chocobo-
    -Location: You cannot summon the Chocobo until after you've finished the 
    Chocobo Forest Puzzle. After you have solved it, use the Gysahl Greens to 
    have the Chocobo attack.
    
    -MiniMog-
    -Location: MiniMog is more of a GF Ability. By using the Mog Amulet, you can 
    teach a GF the MiniMog Ability. The downfall is, that it works in the effect 
    that it heals your GF's, but costs you 100 Gil Per Character Average Level.
    
    -Moomba-
    -Location:Call upon them by using the Friendship item in battle.
    
    -Gilgamesh-
    -Location: After Odin get's whopped by Seifer, Gilgamesh will take over his 
    job by aiding you 1 out of 10 battles, including Boss Fights. He has four 
    attacks:
    
    Masamune: Heavy Damage to all enemies.
    Excalipoor: 1 point of damage to all enemies.
    Excaliber Strong damage against all enemies.
    Zantetsuken: Slices and instantly kills all enemies on screen.
