* Mousse of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' did this to a deaged Ranma and Ryoga once in the manga while trying to learn fire breathing.
* Pretty much the weapon of choice for the [[ActionSurvivor Action Survivors]] of ''Manga/{{Biomeat|Nectar}}''.
* Saburo draws one in the episode of ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'' where he was introduced to the Reality Pen.

* They show up in ''{{GURPS}}: High-Tech'' but are unreliable, lack range and get five seconds of firing time at best. They're still better than most improvised weapons, scarier too.

* ''{{Postal}} 2'' gets one with the ''A Week in Paradise'' mod. The effect looks more like slow-moving clouds of flame rather than a stream, which actually makes it useful for short-term area denial.

Interestingly but for probably obvious reasons, the [[UsefulNotes/MediaClassifications BBFC]] (the British censorship board) doesn't allow this trope to be shown in films or home video rated below "18", as they are pretty strict in banning what they deem is "imitable" and likely to cause injury and/or death if some [[ViewersAreMorons dumb kid]] decided to copy an obviously dangerous action in a movie or TV show.

* In ''VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake'', you have to do this against the final boss. You have to [[{{Macgyvering}} macgyver]] the weapon out of bits and pieces lying around, all the while being hunted by a machine-gun wielding enemy... whom you then have to burn to death with your jury-rigged flamethrower. An early CrowningMomentOfAwesome in Snake's career, at least for the player - in-universe, having to do that is part of what causes Snake's HeroicBSOD that he ends up retiring over between this and [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid the next game]].

* Charles Bishop Weyland from the first ''Film/AlienVsPredator'' movie does this as a HeroicSacrifice with a flare and a medicine inhaler. He gets butchered by a Predator hunter because he had a weapon, trumping the fact that he's a sick old man who the hunter would ignore otherwise.

* ''The Tango Briefing'' by Adam Hall. British spy {{Quiller}} is being held at gunpoint by Egyptian intelligence mooks, waiting for their BigBad to arrive. He's next to his car, so he removes the fuelcap (hidden behind his back) and drops a lit match into the petrol tank, turning it into an impromptu flamethrower.
