Howl of Ferocious Blaze
Ifrit is a recurring fire-elemental summon in the Final Fantasy series. He appears in Dragon Quest Tact as part of a collaboration event with the mobile strategy RPG War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius.
Ifrit regularly takes on the appearance of a red-skinned demon with firey hair wearing a black loincloth. He has control over the element of fire and his signature attack is Hellfire, which deals fire damage to all enemies and is often performed with a flaming tackle. Although he rarely is given a backstory in the games, he is often known by his title of The Infernal, tends to be one of the more aggressive summons in the series (if not the most aggressive), and occasionally has a rivalry with Shiva, the ice-elemental summon. His appearance in Tact is based on his War of the Visions incarnation, where he looks more beastlike and wears a black cloth around his waist. He is adorned with gold armbands and bracelets.
Final Fantasy series
Ifrit made his first appearance in the 1990 game Final Fantasy III and he has continued to appear in some form in every main series game since and even regularly appears in spinoff games, as well.
Ifrit appears as an A-rank member of the ??? family as part of the limited War of the Visions: Final Fantasy event. He also appears as a boss in the Large Battle alongside Bahamut, Shiva, and Phoenix.
Ifrit (also spelled as Efreet or Afreet)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.
Ifrit has also been called Jinn. The jinn, also spelled djinn, or genies, are spirits mentioned in the Qurʾān and Islamic theology who inhabit an unseen world in dimensions beyond the visible universe of humans. Together, the jinn, humans and angels make up the three sentient creations of God. The Hell Fire attack draws reference to the Jinn Shaitan (Satan)'s role in Islamic thought, as the Holy Qu-ran describes him as refusing to prostrate himself before mankind due to believing that he -as a creature of fire- was superior to humanity.
