* {{Albion}} has them in the form of spells, as well as parts of dungeon traps and puzzles. When seeing them, the resident scientist is left wondering what holds them together and speculates that the planet is intentionally {{troll}}ing psysicits.

* A common spell in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' and various other games. D&D's fireball is actually a bit different: the spell shoots a "glowing, pea-sized bead" that explodes upon impact into a gigantic sphere of flame (the actual "fireball"), doing nasty damage over a twenty-foot radius, making it the first ranged AOE damage spell that Magic Users can cast. There's also Flaming Sphere, a 10' wide ball of fire that rolled around on the ground at the caster's will. And then there's [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Delayed Blast Fireball]] and [[SpamAttack Meteor Swarm]]. Non-core improvements include things like Fallion's Fabulous Fireball (runs a programmed path, like blaster launcher in ''{{X-Com}}'').

* The fire-benders in AvatarTheLastAirbender and ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfKorra'' can produce these, among other fire-manipulation tricks. They're usually emitted through the hands and feet during punches and kicks.

* Ball lightning is one of the least understood meteorological phenomena known to man. Essentially a ball of light that occurs during a thunder and or lightning storm, these little (or huge) buggers have been known about since antiquity. By the late twentieth century most of the scientific community had deemed ball lightning a myth, however the proliferation of color photography soon would prove the existence of phenomena and by the early 2000s with the advent and wide use of the internet and digital photography its existence was positively confirmed. Nobody knows exactly what the stuff is though, other than a ball of light with electric properties. They are semi-rare as whole: only a quarter of Americans surveyed have claimed to see it (must only claim to when prompted, as they don't initially report the sightings for fear of being deemed crazy or a liar). Its reported characteristics vary wildly-some times it can pass though people without out harming them, at other times they discharge massive amounts of electricity, even up to a normal lightning strike. Ball lightning can sometimes move erratically and swiftly but often seems to move slowly and lazily. These balls of light often seem to also be attracted to wires, electrical appliances, and metal. There are many theories as to what exactly ball lightning is, however ball lightning's rarity and unpredictably will likely mean that this phenomena will likely remain unexplained for several more years.

* Wizard's Fire in ''TheSwordOfTruth'' series. Literally an enormous sphere of liquid fire, almost napalm-like.

* An old trick not seen much in modern shows, [[Wrestling/EdFarhat the original Sheik]], Wrestling/JerryLawler and Wrestling/JimCornette all did it. The closest thing to a famous modern example would be Wrestling/{{Kane}}, though even then he did it rarely. It is more popular in some regions than others, such as El Mega Triple Campeon de Wrestling/{{AAA}} throwing fireballs around Mexico and the Caribbean but not making much mark in the continental USA, where his use of them in Wrestling/WrestlingSocietyX killed the promotion's tv deal when it upset MTV executives. The effects of a fireball range from burn marks to {{temporary blindness}} to instant blazes. They are considered [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty a cheat during matches]] but can be used for "heroic" actions in other circumstances, such as when a baby {{face}} is cornered by multiple enemies or protecting a charge.[[/folder]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}}''
** The first ''Shantae'' game had Fire Balls that worked like improved [[SpikyBallsOfDoom pike balls]], revolving around Shantae at a faster rate to protect her from enemies.
** ''Risky's Revenge'' had more typical Fire Balls that Shantae launched in front of her from her hands and [[StandardStatusEffects continuously burned their targets until they die]]. The game also had the Spit Fire, an upgraded version of the attack that launches three fireballs SpreadShot style. Besides serving as the only long-range attacks in Shantae's arsenal, they're also used to burn away the occasional overgrown plant-life that blocks her path.
