* In the ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal, Miss Alice Band is one of the Assassins' Guild's go-to people on archery and projectile weapons. Alice will use flaming arrows if absolutely necessary - for instance, when taking down classic brain-eating highly infectious Zombies from a necessary distance - but points out to her pupils that arrows take time to make and are expensive, and deliberately damaging them with flame means they are one-shot weapons which cannot be retrieved afterwards for re-use. She also points out that it is not advisable to hold the shot for too long before loosing, as your bow is also made of wood and, guess what, wood is also inflammable and can be damaged by exposure to fire.Damaging an expensive precision weapon for the sake of a showy display, she says, is not a bight idea.
