Ifrit is a boss from Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. In the first encounter with him, when fighting the Mysterious Girl during Edge's Tale, Ifrit is an unbeatable boss and must be escaped from. During the escape from the Tower of Babil, Ifrit will be in random encounters and the player will be forced to run from him.


Battle Edit

In the last Tale, Ifrit is again a random encounter that must be fled from in Eblan, and is then fought as a defeatable boss. Ifrit is exceptionally strong, and Edge will advise that all the player can do is run. It is advised to run until the player has witnessed cutscenes of Rubicante showing Edge how to use the ability Inferno. Once the player has seen the scene, Ifrit must be fought, and is guaranteed to be acquired once the player defeats him. Defeating him before acquiring the Inferno Band could result in losing him for good.

Strategy Edit

The best strategy is to have Rydia casting Blizzara, or Blizzaga if she is at a high enough level. Edge should simply attack, and every once in awhile use Mirage to escape physical harm, while using a Heal pill to recover HP. Luca should attack or use Big Throw depending on the Moon Phase, while throwing around potions. The Man in Black should be constantly casting Blizzaga.

Etymology Edit

In Arabian mythology, Ifrit (also spelled Efreet or Afreet, from Arabic عفريت Ifrīt), is the name given to a class of Jinn (Demons also known as Djinn, Djinni, and Genie) that embody fire. Though they could live for thousands of years, they were not immortal, and if cut, they would "bleed" the fire running through their veins until it consumed their bodies.
