* The only sinister characters in ''Art/TheApotheosisOfWashington'' are the tyrant king and his followers, who stick out because a few of them are seen with torches trying to burn down [[{{Arcadia}} Ceres's agricultural utopia]]. In case the evil wasn't clear enough, the fire isn't light-bearing so much as smoke-spewing, covering [[DarkIsEvil the tyrants with smoke and shadow]].

* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' introduced Captain Nemesis, a superhero who turned villain when he got annoyed at Ben being more popular than him. For their final battle in that episode, his PoweredArmor was rigged in such a way that it became increasingly hot with each attack. Ben beat him by using [[MakingASplash Water Hazard]] to rapidly cool the suit then absorb the moisture from it, turning it into brittle junk.

* ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfWar'' has the balrog Tar-Goroth who rises from a pit of lava, bruns wood [[WalkingWasteland simply by being near it]] and leaves flaming footprints wherever he walks.

Can occasionally overlap with LightIsNotGood since fire also produces light. [[OppositeTropes Contrast]] with EvilIsDeathlyCold and HolyBurnsEvil. For a different kind of "hot", see EvilIsSexy.

Fire is destructive, chaotic, and painful to touch. It has destroyed buildings, killed millions of people, and scarred others. Because of all the destruction and blood lost to it, it will often be associated with evil. Whether it's [[TechnicolorFire orange, red, blue, or green]], it's always going to be evil. The fire doesn't even have to be your ordinary campfire, it could be the [[{{Hellfire}} unholy fires]] of FireAndBrimstoneHell itself or a similarly evil variant.

** {{Satan}} and {{Hell}} are usually represented in pop culture as being associated with fire. Literature/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.

** Literature/TheFourGospels constantly describe {{Hell}} as "the furnace of fire" or "unquenchable fire" to emphasize how painful the separation from God will be. This imagery is used more dramatically in the [[Literature/BookOfRevelation Apocalypse]], where very evil-doer is thrown by Christ into an eternal "lake of fire" to burn alongside the Devil and his ilk. Because of these Biblical images, [[TropeMaker the West began to associate fire with evil]] and now {{Satan}} and {{Hell}} are usually represented in pop culture as being associated with fire.

*** During the Siege of Barad-dûr, Sauron slew Gil-galad (and possibly Elendil) with the heat of his hands as they wrestled. His being burning hot makes sense, given that he was a Maia of fire before he [[FallenAngel fell]].
