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 Hellfire, 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 summoned by the Mysterious Girl during Edge's tale, and serves as an undefeatable boss. After the battle, he chases Edge through the Tower of Babil much like X-ATM092 from Final Fantasy VIII. After obtaining him as a summon (the player must avoid killing him in order to get him), he can be used by Rydia, and is required in order to obtain Ramuh as a summon later on.
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. According to an NPC on the roof of the library, Ifrit's purpose was to burn books of the Library that had been possessed by monsters.
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 and PS1 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 can be summoned in battle using the appropriate Materia in this game.
During the beginning of Crisis Core, Ifrit is fought as a boss after having been summoned by Genesis. After this battle a mission will appear called "Rematch with Ifrit". Once defeated, Zack will be given the Ifrit Materia which will add Ifrit to the DMW. His signature attack is still Hell Fire.
Ifrit is the third Guardian Force available. He is obtained by defeating him in the Fire Cavern before the time limit runs out. He is also somewhat unique in that he talks during the battle, and expresses surprise and alarm if you summon the Guardian Force Shiva during the battle. When summoned, he used the attack called Hell Fire, which is a fire-elemental attack against all enemies.

Ifrit is obtained automatically from Doctor Tot at the beginning of Disc 3. It is learned through the Topaz, and only Princess Garnet can summon its Flames of Hell. The amount of damage Ifrit can do is equal to 42 plus the total number of Topazs in the party's inventory.
Ifrit is an Aeon that is obtained in Kilika Temple. Its unique ability is called "Meteor Strike", in which he conjures a ball of fiery rock and punches it towards the enemy, which penetrates the "Protect" spell. 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.
In the International and PAL versions of the game, Ifrit appears as a Dark Aeon after the party escapes from Bevelle and are branded traitors of Yevon. He will attack if you get too close to the former entrance to Home in the Bikanel Desert.
Ifrit appears in Final Fantasy XI as one of the six celestial avatars. He represents the fire element. The job class Summoner can unlock the "spell" Ifrit upon completion of the quest "Trial By Fire." Alternatively, a brave low-level summoner may go on the quest "Trial Size Trial By Fire" and defeat Ifrit in a battle alone rather than in a group. Ifrit is not as often used for casting party-benefiting spells as many of the other Summons included in Final Fantasy XI. Instead, his strength seems to be doing larger amounts of raw physical damage.
