Meteor Strike (メテオストライク, Meteo Sutoraiku?), also known as Suplex and Meteordrive, is an ability in the Final Fantasy series. It has appeared as both an ability used by Ifrit and as a powerful technique for Monks that involves picking up enemies and slamming them to the ground.
Meteor Strike, known as Suplex in SNES and PlayStation versions, is a Blitz Sabin can use. If used on a single enemy its Battle power is 180, making it potentially the strongest Blitz technique. However, if there are more than one enemy present, the power of Meteor Strike is cut in half despite it only affecting one enemy. Some enemies are unaffected by Meteor Strike.
Tifa uses Meteor Strike when fighting Loz in the Sector 5 Church.
Zell's Limit Break Duel can use Meteor Strike. Meteor Strike does more damage the more HP the target has, making it effective against powerful enemies. Zell can also use Meteor Barret, but it functions differently and has a different animation.

Ifrit can use Meteor Strike to attack for moderate non-elemental damage. Its damage is considered neither physical or magical, instead falling into "special" damage category. This means it will be unaffected by Protect or Shell. Using it delays Ifrit's next turn. Belgemine's Ifrit and Isaaru's Ifrit, Grothia, both can use Meteor Strike. The boss Dark Ifrit can also uses a version of Meteor Strike which delays the target and breaks the damage limit. Dark Ifrit's Meteor Strike is magical unlike most special attacks, and hits 20,310 to 22,933 damage with no magical buffs or other protections in place.

Meteor Strike is a Blood Pact: Rage for Ifrit, purchased with three Merit Points after a Summoner has reached level 75 or higher. Meteor Strike deals massive fire magic damage to an enemy. Damage varies with Ifrit's TP.
Meteor Strike, along with the other Merit Blood Pacts, has a noticeably longer range then most other Blood Pacts, meaning these Blood Pacts are less likely to interrupt due to distance from a target. Spending additional Merit Points on this ability will increase its TP Bonus by 40 for each merit, increasing its power.
