Salamander is the rank 1 Fire Ranged summon. Its normal attack, Fireball, deals Fire damage to one foe.
Salamander first appears in Final Fantasy Tactics as a higher level Fire summon. He is learned for 820 Job Points, by the Summoner job class. Salamander performs Wyrmfire, a Fire-elemental attack on all enemies in range. It costs 48 MP to cast and has a speed of 12. Salamander has a 30% chance of randomly being learned in battle by a Summoner who has not yet learned it and is not KO'd by it, or absorbs at least 1 HP worth of damage. Nullifying the damage does not count.
Salamander from Final Fantasy Tactics appears in the Final Fantasy Trading Card Game with a fire-elemental card.
