Ifrit giant fire demon, Ifrit performs Crimson Dive, dealing fire damage to enemies from above
Shiva goddess of ice, Shiva uses Diamond Dust, an attack that causes severe ice damage to the surrounding area

While summoning Ifrit is part of initial training, you cannot access Summoning Orders in training mode with other Soldiers, and there is no indication that Ifrit or Shiva can be obtained in matches.
