    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Ifrit is the recurring fire-elemental summon in the Final Fantasy series. His Hellfire attack, sometimes called Flames of Hell or Inferno, deals fire-elemental damage to all foes.

    Ifrit was a type of Jinn, originally as referenced in Final Fantasy IV, found in the Qur'an, often read as "efreet" or "ifreet." It doesn't embody fire in these religious texts, but it is often associated with the element in popular culture. Not a Final Fantasy exclusive, Ifrit can be found in various fantasy and role-playing games, including Dungeons & Dragons.

    Ifrit's physical appearance has changed from title to title, but generally has the following characteristics:

    Ifrit is fought in the Fire Cavern of Final Fantasy VIII. Found early in the game, Ifrit is the third Guardian Force the player obtains (after Quetzalcoatl and Shiva.) Like in Final Fantasy VI, Ifrit talks to the party during the battle, and is clearly surprised whenever Shiva is summoned. Ifrit drops his own Triple Triad, the card game played in the FFVIII universe, card when you defeat him. A greatly powerful card for so early in the game, Ifrit gives the player a great opportunity to win many card games.
