* In the intro to ''The Bugs and Daffy Show'', Daffy Duck's increasingly desperate attempts to get the audience's attention eventually include frustratedly walking onto the stage as a magician, making a hoop appear, bringing up a lit [[FeatherFingers thumb]] to set it on fire, but before he does, gesturing at it while continuing to look at the audience, as if to say, "That's my thumb with the fire on it."

This doesn't just apply to fire powers, but any hero or villain with [[PowerGlows energy- or light-emitting]] powers can use these poses or simply using [[FrictionBurn friction]]. If they can spread the flames to their entire body, they are WreathedInFlames.

* [[BadAss Jacques]] in ''Webcomic/{{Bibliography}}'' uses this as his usual method to light up his [[SmokingIsCool cigarettes]]... and to dispatch semi-sentient exploding fire familiars.
* In ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'', this technique is a staple of any sufficiently tough person of the fire element. Specifically done by Azurai and Cliff (although Azurai technically used his breath, but it was sufficiently BadAss to work).
