FF8 Cerberus

Cerberus is a support Guardian Force found during the Battle of the Gardens where he appears as an optional boss. If the player misses Cerberus, it can be drawn from Gargantua in the final dungeon. When Cerberus is summoned it uses Counter Rockets to bestow Double and Triple on the party.

Cerberus learns more junction abilities than the Guardian Forces obtained so far, as well as Speed boosting support abilities and status attack and defense, among them them useful Status Defense x4. It is the only GF to learn Auto-Haste naturally, and also learns an ability to reduce the number of spells actually expended from the spell stock to one when the user dualcasts with the Double status. Its unique ability lets the player avoid back attacks in random encounters.

Its compatibility item is Dragon Fin. Its compatibility is also boosted by casting buffing magic. Unlike most GFs, Cerberus doesn't have an "opposite" GF whose summoning would deduct from its compatibility the most. Its Triple Triad card drops from itself when it is defeated as a boss.

Cerberus 1 (FFXI)

The Cerberus family are members of the Beast Type introduced in the Treasures of Aht Urhgan expansion pack. They are encountered exclusively as Notorious Monsters. In particular, an enemy named Cerberus can be encountered at Mount Zhayolm once every three to five days.

Cerberus was discovered buried in igneous rock during a construction project inside the tunnels of Halvung. He went on a rampage until the mercenary chief managed to tame him. Although Cerberus is faithful to his master, one of his heads is continually afflicted with a craving, which puts the beast in a constant foul mood. In his endless rage, Cerberus spews toxic flames without cease or concern for surroundings, resulting in many hapless tragedies. It is for this reason that even the menacing Troll Mercenaries are said to cover their ears and shiver in fear when the jarring roar of Cerberus echoes through the tunnels.
