However, it's also one of the only things capable of destroying [[SoulJar horcruxes]].



* {{Satan}} and {{Hell}} are usually represented in pop culture as being associated with fire. TheDivineComedy is a notable aversion of this, since Satan is trapped in the ''coldest'' part of hell. In Literature/TheBible, though, Satan is not really associated with fire and only ends up in fire because God throws him into the Lake of Fire at the end of the world. He is actually associated thoroughly with air and light, [[LightIsNotGood traditionally more "heavenly"]] elements, and in Revelation, he vomits water.
* In UsefulNotes/{{Islam}}, Iblis and, by extension, Satan, are Djinn made of fire. Hell has flames that burn so hot they're pitch black.
* Loki from the original Norse Mythology was thought to be the God of Fire, though it turned out to be a linguistic confusion (and probably association with Satan). His name actually seems to come from "lopt", which means "air".

* Burning hot hellfire is usually assocated with evil things in Abrahamic religions, understandable, given that most of the faiths were born in a blisteringly-hot desert area (i.e. the Middle East), it only makes sense for the population to condemn heat but welcome cold. Contrast this with the areas near the North Pole: Northern Europe, Siberia, and Northern Canada, whose indigenous people usually associate hell with [[EvilIsDeathlyCold deathly cold things]].
** UsefulNotes/{{Judaism}}, at least in its early stages, is an aversion, as the underworld, Sheol, is instead thought of as a grim and depressing place, but not hot (kind of like the Greek Hades or the Norse Hel).

* ** In UsefulNotes/{{Islam}}, Iblis and, by extension, Satan, the jinn (genies) are Djinn beings made of fire. While they are not inherently evil (they are like humans in that they can choose to be good or bad), one of them, Iblis/Satan, is undoubtedly bad. Also, Hell has flames that burn so hot they're pitch black.
* Loki from the original Norse Mythology UsefulNotes/NorseMythology was thought to be the God of Fire, though it turned out to be a linguistic confusion (and probably association [[HijackedByJesus a conflation with Satan).Satan]]). His name actually seems to come from "lopt", which means "air". There ''is'' a separate god, or rather, jotunn, of fire called Logi, but he is more of a PunchClockVillain.
** Norse mythology has an entire class of fire jotnar who live in [[LethalLavaLand Muspellheim, the realm of fire]]. They are morally questionable, as with other jotnar, though specific characterization is difficult because they don't appear much, except in [[{{Gotterdammerung}} Ragnarok]], where their leader, Surtr, notably became the figure ultimately responsible for annihilating the entire universe by [[SetTheWorldOnFire setting it on fire]].
* In UsefulNotes/JapaneseMythology, the god of fire, Kagutsuchi, is [[NotEvilJustMisunderstood not so much evil as being thoroughly misunderstood]], but his birth was [[DeathByChildbirth what killed his mother]], the matriarch god Izanami, making her the first god to be sent into the Underworld. His father, the patriarch god Izanagi, meanwhile, [[MaternalDeathBlameTheChild immediately killed him]]. These days, the opinion is [[BrokenBase mostly split]] whether to consider him as [[{{Demonization}} the ultimate Satan figure]], or [[DracoInLeatherPants pity him]].


Added DiffLines:

* Jinpachi Mishima of ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' fame can spit fireballs which take up 3/4 your lifebar, plus in ''Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection'', his whole body is surrounded by [[WreathedInFlames flames and lava]]. Oh, and he's also the final boss of ''Tekken 5'' and the aforementioned ''Dark Resurrection''. Ironically, he is probably one of the most just characters in the series, or at least, [[WhiteSheep he is just compared to his family]].

* In the novelization of ''Literature/RevengeOfTheSith'', Obi-Wan senses Anakin in the Force "burning like a fusion torch," just before their lightsaber duel. Throughout the book, Anakin has thought of his rage as a blast furnace in his heart, and during the climactic duel, Darth Vader lets it out.

* The overall villain of the Arson case desk in ''LANoire'' is [[spoiler: a former flamethrower who served under Cole in the Pacific during World War 2. He brought his weapon home with him]]. While it might seem inevitable that the villain of that part of the game would be so inclined, [[spoiler: he was essentially TheDragon (made to burn down houses for profit), until the manipulations of his psychiatrist backfired and finally drove him into full on AxeCrazy territory, and he suddenly burst in, [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere strangled the Doctor]], and kidnapped the LoveInterest]].
