The “Guardians of the Directions” are four ancient monsters who have a huge amount of power and are assigned as guardians of particular areas of the map. In some cases the monsters are rulers appointed by the Monster Lord, however other cases point towards monsters of an unknown age who are related to the history and myths of nearby settlements.
The idea seems to be lifted from the myth of the Four Heavenly Kings who are each assigned a direction in the form of the North, South, East and West areas of the map.
In the game, these are represented by Poseidoness (North), Kraken (South), Yamata no Orochi (East) and Sphinx (West).
