Ifrit artwork by Yoshitaka Amano

Ifrit (イフリート Ifurīto), also known as Jinn is a fire-elemental Summon which appears in several games in the series. His attack is called Hell Fire, sometimes called Inferno or Flames of Hell, and deals fire-elemental damage to all opponents. He is one of the most frequently appearing Summons and is often a rival to the ice-Summon Shiva.

Like most re-appearing Summons, he changes his appearance in each game, but remains somewhat similar in each game although he curiously appears more and more "beast-like" and less "humanoid" as the series evolves. In general, Ifrit has green-brown skin with long horns and claws, covered by a simple kilt-like covering around his waist.

Ifrit is a Level 2 summon found in the Library of the Ancients, where he must be fought to be obtained. There is dialogue between him and Shiva if the player managed to find her.

Ifrit is an Esper whose magic power was completely drained. Along with Shiva, was discarded by Kefka Palazzo in the Magitek Research Facility. He attacks the party when they approach him, but stops when he senses Ramuh's power, and he offers himself up as Magicite.

During his dialogue after the battle, Ifrit claims he and Ramuh were brothers born of different elements, although it is unlikely he meant "brothers" in the literal sense.

During Kefka's attack on Thamasa, a red palette swap of Ifrit attacks him with powerful fire spells, but it is easily slain by Kefka.

His attack is called Hellfire (Inferno in the SNES translation), with a Spell Power of 51, and it is unblockable. He costs 26 MP to summon. He teaches the following spells:

At Level Up he gives a +1 boost to Vigor.

Ifrit's Overdrive is Hellfire, where he bathes the enemy party in a ball of rising flame and then throws a chunk of earth at them, causing fire damage. Wakka's World Champion weapon allows Ifrit to break the damage limit of 9,999 hit points.

Ifrit from FFXI

Ifrit appears as one of the 6 prime avatars in Final Fantasy XI. Avatars are available only to Summoners or (less sensibly) a character with a subjob of Summoner in Final Fantasy XI.
