As their name implies, Summoners are capable of summoning powerful beasts to do their bidding, which often happens to be fighting an opponent of theirs although some summons provide healing effects the summoner's party. In the Fire Emblem series, they may have one summon at a time which is an axe-wielding phantom. Their stats (except for defense and resistance, which are always 0) mirror those of their summoner. In the Final Fantasy series, the summonable creatures only appear for a short time and cost a lot of Magic Points, or MP. Recurring summons include Ifrit, Shiva, Ramuh, Bahamut, and Odin.
