The following article is based on a subject that has not been officially named in any official Square Enix material; the current title is merely a placeholder.

An unnamed esper that looks like a red palette swap of Ifrit challenges Kefka to a battle in Thamasa. The battle is cinematic. In the mobile/Steam release the unnamed esper uses Ifrit's sprite instead of being a palette swap, although a palette swap version of the sprite is still found inside the coding.

Stats Edit

Battle Edit

During the event, Kefka faces off against this esper. Kefka comes equipped with a Morning Star, Paladin's Shield and a Ribbon and has relatively high stats (Kefka 3) compared to his previous fights. After the espers useless efforts in trying to defeat Kefka, the esper ends up being transformed into magicite.

Etymology Edit

In fiction, an esper (stylized as ESPer) is an individual capable of telepathy and other similar paranormal abilities. The term was apparently coined in this sense by Alfred Bester in his 1950 short story "Oddy and Id" and is derived from the abbreviation ESP for extrasensory perception.

Trivia Edit

FFVI Magicite Battle Sprite
  • When Kefka transformed the unnamed esper into magicite, the magicite sprite is not the same as the magicite sprite that appears on the field. It is an unique sprite that only appears in this cutscene.
  • The formation used during the gameplay is #392. Triggering the other formations does not cause Kefka to appear, but the event will still play and the esper will still ends up being transformed into magicite.
