Valefor (ヴァルファーレ, Varufāre?) is a recurring summon in the Final Fantasy series. She is a flying summon that first appeared as an aeon in Final Fantasy X as Yuna's first aeon, and has been associated with her since.
Valefor's fayth, a teenage girl, is located within the temple of Besaid. She is Yuna's first aeon. Her regular attack is a talon claw which lacks piercing, her unique ability is Sonic Wings which deals damage and causes Delay, and she has basic Blk Magic spells by default. She has two Overdrives, Energy Ray and Energy Blast.
Valefor is mentioned during the Mor Dhona sidequest "Short Arms of Law". Once the Warrior of Light defeats Gagarua's gang to protect the Doman kids, the Lalafell leader pretends to summon the primal Valefor, distracting the Warrior of Light to make their escape. An enemy known as Valefor appears in the Labyrinth of the Ancients, but this is a voidsent dahak rather than the recurring summon. Given this and Gagarua's ruse, it is unknown if a primal Valefor actually exists.
Valefor is also the name of a server in Final Fantasy XIV.
Valefor appeared as a boss in Final Fantasy Tactics S.
Valefor can be summoned by Yuna to fight in her stead. Her Bravery attacks are Energy Blast and Sonic Wing, and her HP Attack is Energy Ray.

Valefor is called during Yuna's "Grand Summon I" Default Soul Break, dealing 110% non-elemental magic damage at the cost of one Soul Gauge segment. At ~600 damage at level 70, the Soul Break is poor. Issaru's Pterya appears as a boss in the Record of Via Purifico Maze. In addition, Valefor exists separately as a 4-Star Summoning ability that can be called by other characters, dealing non-elemental damage. While many summon Soul Breaks in the game use summon moves the same as that of the Ability summon, Valefor's animation is different. While Yuna's "Grand Summon I" uses Energy Blast, the Summoning Ability uses Energy Ray and hits twice.
A spirit-beast forever loyal to those who summon it.

Kingdom Hearts seriesEdit
- An action figure of the Final Fantasy X Valefor exists as part of the Final Fantasy Creatures Kai Vol 1 series.
- Dark Valefor is also the only Dark Aeon who cannot break the Damage Limit with her normal attacks.
- The airship Valfarre in Final Fantasy XII is based on the summon Valefor.
- One of names available for monsters in Final Fantasy XIII-2 is Valefor.
- In Final Fantasy X, if the damage limit is ignored (or has not yet been reached), Valefor's second overdrive Energy Blast is one of the most powerful attacks in the game. Additionally, it is the strongest attack that is reliable; all stronger attacks either can be reduced by the enemy's defense (Attack Reels), are only stronger than Energy Blast when landing a critical hit (Nova), or both (Blitz Ace).
