Final Fantasy VIII

No matter how hard you hold on...it escapes you. And...
Quote by: Sorceress Ultimecia

Carbuncle

Carbuncle is one of the GF's that you can obtain by drawing it from an enemy. Carbuncle is also gained while fighting an important enemy during the Sorceress Assassination Mission in Deling City. It is stated in-game that long-term Junctioning of Guardian Forces causes memory loss to the user, because the GF draw power from the same section of the mind that stores memories, so using them is not without risks. I think Carbuncle is a very cute GF, even its performance when summoned looks very cute if you ask me!

Carbuncle doesn't really attack the enemy, no instead, he'll cast Reflect on the whole party. This is extremely useful in battles against enemies that use a lot of magic. Be aware of the fact that the effect can be taken away by using Dispel.

Location

During the Assassination of the Sorceress Mission in Deling City, you'll have to save Rinoa from two Iguions in the Presidential Residence with Squall and Irvine. from either of the two Iguions, you can draw Carbuncle, so don't miss it! If you did miss Carbuncle here, there's a second opportunity to draw Carbuncle. That is in Ultimecia's Castle, from the Boss Krysta on disc 4.

Carbuncle's Attack: Ruby Light

Carbuncle doesn't actually attack the enemy. It will cast Reflect on the entire party instead. This can be extremely useful if you're battling against enemies that use a lot of magic. However, the effect can be taken away by Dispel. For example during the Boss Battle against Sorceress Edea in Deling City, just after you obtained Carbuncle. Edea uses a lot of magic spells, but once you have Reflect, she starts casting Dispel to cancel the effect so she can cast magic again. If you use Carbuncle every turn, she won't be able to attack you at all with her magical spells. The Summon is also useful to have at this point of the game, since you'll have this ability earlier probably than you'll have the opportunity to draw Reflect or triple from an enemy. In its summoning animation, it starts with it appearing from a hole in the ground. After that, it jumps up and casts "Ruby Light" on the party, granting them the Reflect status before returning into the hole.

Useful Abilities

Carbuncle's most valuable abilities are ST-Atk-J, ST-Def-J and Abilityx3. These are somewhat rare abilities and extremely useful, just as with Diablos and Siren. The Vit Bonus and Counter abilities are also worthwhile. The Vit Bonus will increase a Junctioned character's Vitality by one point every time he or she levels up. This will enable you to create a character with a powerful defence against physical attacks. counter will give your character the chance to randomly counterattack an enemy when attacked.

History

Carbuncle (カーバンクル, Kābankuru), also known as Carbunkl is a recurring Summon that appears in various games of the Final Fantasy series.
