Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

Ifrit casts Hell Fire in Final Fantasy VIII. An extremely damaging Fire-elemental attack that can be made stronger through Boost. Ifrit's summon time is 13s, which, according to the Final Fantasy VIII Ultimania, allows the player to boost its damage to around 180% of normal damage using a regular PlayStation controller.

Its damage is calculated as follows:[1]

Damage = 61 * Level / 10 + 45 + 2
Damage = Damage * (265 - TargetSpr) / 8
Damage = Damage * 45 / 256
Damage = Damage * Boost / 100
Damage = Damage * (100 + SummonMagBonus) / 100
Damage = Damage * (900 - ElemDef) / 100:

Elemental Defense starts at 800 (0%), 900 nullifies damage and 1000 absorbs it. If an enemy is shown to be weak against an element, its Elemental Defense is below 800. If damage becomes negative (due to high Elemental Defense), the target is healed by that amount.
