An exoskeleton, muscle, and speed... all of which increase strength. Add the Busoshoku Haki I've developed to the exoskeleton, and my legs are tougher, capable of supporting even hotter flames!!!
— Sanji on the creation of his new technique.[1]

Ifrit Jambe is a much stronger variant of Diable Jambe, developed by Sanji during the Raid on Onigashima. Having equipped his Raid Suit three times during the Wano Country Arc, it awakened his inert genetic modifications, granting him powers similar to his siblings. Accepting the modifications, but choosing to cut ties with Germa through the destruction of his Raid Suit, Sanji combined his new powers with his old ones to develop a far more powerful technique.[2]

Combining his exoskeleton with his Busoshoku Haki, Sanji's legs became capable of enduring much hotter flames than before, turning blue, producing blazes resembling lightning. Using the enhanced speed and weight behind his strikes alongside it, Ifrit Jambe makes Sanji's kicking techniques incomparable to before.[2]

Bœuf Burst

Sanji defeats Queen with Bœuf Burst.

  • Bœuf Burst (牛肉ブフバースト, Bufu Bāsuto?, literally meaning "Beef Burst"): The culmination of a powerful combo making full use of Ifrit Jambe. Sanji performs a burning kick aimed at the center of the opponent's body, blowing the enemy away with a powerful spiraling explosion.

This was first seen to defeat Queen and send him flying off Onigashima after a long and devastating series of kicks.[2] Bœuf is the French word for beef, while the Burst portion in front of the attack's name refers to the "juice" extracted out of the cooked meat, most notably a "seared beef."

Trivia[]

  • An Ifrit is a powerful type of demon (or jinn) in Arabian mythology that are often associated with the underworld and identified with the spirits of the dead. In Arabian folklore, they are a class of generally ruthless and wicked chthonic spirits formed out of smoke and fire. In modern fiction, they are almost always associated with the element of fire.
  • In real-life, flames that turn blue-white are considered to be the hottest, thus it coincides with Sanji using the hottest flames for Ifrit Jambe.
  • During the climax of One Piece Film: Red, Sanji's Diable Jambe is charged by Charlotte Oven's flames and turns blue-white, possibly as an early nod to Ifrit Jambe.
