Dark Ifrit is an optional boss in the International and PAL versions of Final Fantasy X. It can be encountered on Bikanel, near the entrance to where the Al Bhed Home was. The player must offer help to an Al Bhed woman, who says she has lost her child, who is later discovered to be a summoner in disguise. The summoner upon Dark Ifrit's defeat runs into a Sandragora while trying to escape.
Dark Ifrit's physical attack is strong due to his high Strength, and he counters every attack with it. His special move, Meteor Strike, is used on his turns. Unlike the regular Ifrit's Meteor Strike, Dark Ifrit's is magical, and does not ignore protective measures. His Overdrive is Hellfire, which is the only one of Dark Ifrit's attacks that hits multiple targets. None of Dark Ifrit's attacks are elemental. If the party's HP is not extremely high, it is best to cast Auto-Life, or call an aeon.
The battle should not be difficult if the player heals frequently, or has the Auto-Phoenix ability, but high Agility, Accuracy, Strength, and Defense are still recommended. It would help if Wakka or Tidus had Break Damage Limit so that their Attack Reels and Blitz Ace Overdrives deal a lot of damage.
