The trope is named after the salamander, a mythological animal depicted as a fire-breathing lizard or a wingless dragon. Nowadays, the name is given to a real animal who actually isn't a real reptile, but a small amphibian with a lizard-like shape. However, alchemists would often attribute them mystical properties, such as the ability to survive fire, or even extinguish it by the mere coldness or their blood. As a result, the legendary counterpart of the salamander stayed in the memory, and has been raised to the rank of ElementalEmbodiment of Fire.

** Agunimon, [[{{Expy}} who was vaguely a humoinoid Agumon warrior from the fourth]] season's, two of his attacks in Japanese were Burning Salamander and Salamander Break. Additionally his [[Leitmotif Character Song]] is named ''Salamander''. Almost all Digimon related to the Agu/Greymon lines are this trope.

* The salamanders found in ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' are enormous fire breathing lizards about the size of a horse. Unlike most depictions of salamanders, these ones also have RealityWarper abilities, as their presence can turn the environment around them into something fitting for a creature of fire. They're encountered in a forest, but the actual area they reside in has been transformed into a rocky cavern, complete with jets of fire bursting out of the earth and lava patterns along the ground.

** ''TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' features four animal-themed "Divine Beasts": the one that lives on perpetually-erupting DeathMountain is shaped like a salamander. There are also red [[LizardFolk Lizalfos]] that live in the area, breathing fire and swimming in lava pools, being the only thing in the game that can survive doing so. However, their appearance is based off chameleons in this game.

* In the first ''{{Xanth}}'' book, Bink is transformed into a flame-throwing salamander so he can completely incinerate a swarm of teleporting wiggles, worms that create holes by teleporting short distances and telefragging everything they contact with.

Can be considered a SuperTrope to OurDragonsAreDifferent and a subtrope of AlchemicElementals. Arguably related to DinosaursAreDragons.
