* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'': While sparks seem to have a strong preference for creating death rays there are flamethrowers in the setting as well, for instance those in the Library's arsenal which are used in their fight against the Other in the Paris underground.

* When Tony Stark makes the first Iron Man suit in captivity, using nothing but a box of missile parts, he mounts flamethrowers on each arm. They actually behave like real wartime flamethrowers, and are quite devastating to the terrorists' weapons stockpile.

* [[UsefulNotes To be noted]]: the usual image conveyed by a FireBreathingWeapon, as a large, cumbersome and very-short range Zippo lighter, is based on [[TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs film prop flamethrowers]], which, for the sake of safety, are fueled by propane gas. Military flamethrowers were always fed with liquid, sticky and oily fuels and gushed [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8a/German_Brennkommando-firing_Warsaw_1944.jpg gigantic]] [[http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3259/2439836260_7f1211a320.jpg jets]] of [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_pPsuc9rvU4Y/S-nZaYfhbnI/AAAAAAAABlg/VqXK-eqXd_4/s1600/flamethrower.jpg flame]], to obliterate everything combustible in their range (30-50 yards). In small spaces, they were the most frightening weapon imaginable.

* One of the rednecks in ''Film/LittleDeadRottingHood'' shows up with one for the wolf hunt, apparently homemade using a grill propane tank for fuel. It turns out to be useful when the werewolves shake off bullet wounds.
