* ''VideoGame/LittleInferno'' delves to the negative aspects of the trope, likening the fire to ease and predictable comfort of consumerism, and the willful blindness to the slow decay that the passive hordes staring at the fire all day cause.

Additionally can symbolize the relief and warmth of the home, which is a [[OlderThanFeudalism very old]] motif dating back to Ancient Greece. Historically, most homes had a fire going 24/7, even in summer, as it was their only source of light at night and only means of cooking, and letting the fire go out was too risky.

* In ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'', the bonfires scattered all over the world serve as recharging stations for your healing items, magic and health. They also reset the positions of most enemies (As well as reviving the Mooks of an area, for LevelGrinding purposes,) which may very well save your life in many instances. In the late game, these fires also serve as a fast travel system.
