Ifrit (イフリート, Ifrit) is a summon from the Final Fantasy series.
Ifrit is a recurring summonable entity, introduced in Final Fantasy III along with the Summon ability. He made several appearances in later games, always associated with the Fire element. His attack, Hellfire, deals fire damage to all enemies.
His appearance in the Midgar stage is based on his Final Fantasy VII summoning sequence, where he coats himself in flames and throws himself at the enemies like a meteor. His design, however, is based on his more lion-like Final Fantasy VIII version.
As a stage element
Ifrit appears as one of the summons on Midgar. Once summoned he appears in the background, then coats himself in flames and flies away. Afterwards, a large pillar of flame appears from under the stage or one of its sides, moving or tilting it. Contact with the flame deals damage, except to the summoner.
