One of the recurring features of the Final Fantasy series are the Summons. In previous games these took the form of very powerful magic spells, things changed in the eighth installment of the series. Guardian Forces (GFs) were intrinsically linked to the Junction System which the game employed, each character required at least one GF to be attached (or set) to him or her in order to wield magic in battle.
A GF is a powerful creature which can be junctioned by a character in order to gain use of its abilities. As battles are fought, Ability Points (AP) are earned and these can be used to let the GFs learn new abilities (everything from item creation to special abilities, such as the ever-present mug).
Note, that some Guardian Forces and screenshots of Guardian Forces contain unavoidable spoilers.
