* ''WarhammerFantasy'' traditionally has a Bright/Fire magic spell called "The Burning Head".
** Also: Screaming Skull Catapults. The ancient Khemri empire had a habit of keeping the heads of executed criminals, coating them in a special kind of pitch that not only burned well, but made a horrific screaming sound, and firing the things en masse at opposing armies via catapult. Coming back as a race of [[DemBones skeletal undead]] has not cured them of this habit.
*** There's an upgrade for the catapult that lets you fire the skulls of ''the specific race being fought'' at them. This hurts their morale rather badly.
* Khornate daemons in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' are occsionally armed with the dreaded Burning Brass Skulls of Khorne. Presumably they kill people by being f*** ing metal.
** So who gets to wield the Burning Brass Balls of Khorne?
** [[http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Wazdakka_Gutsmek Biker Nob Gutsmek]] once destroyed a [[HumongousMecha Titan]] by ramping into it and killing everybody onboard. The crew's skulls, kept as trophies, are still on fire.

Burning Head".

to:

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': Ghost Rider shows up in the fourth season, complete with flaming skull. Everyone keeps trying to find [[ArbitrarySkepticism mundane explanations for his abilities]]--[[DoingInTheScientist and they always fail]].
-->'''Jeffrey''': Is he Inhuman?\\
'''Coulson''': Claims he made a [[DealWithTheDevil deal with the Devil]].\\
'''Fitz''': Which is nonsense.\\
'''Coulson''': You know, the rationalist in me wants to agree, but the ''skull on fire'' presents a pretty compelling argument for "Hail Satan."

-->I've always heard about people having a conniption, but I've never seen one. You don't want to see them. My wife's face split; the skin and hair came off her face, so there was nothing except a skull! And orange light came out of her hair, and it lit all around, and fire shot from her eye sockets and began to burn my stomach, and she said: [[/folder]]

* ''VideoGame/PathOfExile'' has the summonable Raging Spirit minions, which take the form of flaming skulls that zip around and attack enemies. Unlike other minions, Raging Spirits have a very short life-time and cannot be targeted by enemies, making them more like self-targeting attack spells than meat-shields.

*A Fire Kills PIF featured a man who fell asleep with a burning cigarette. The ad focused on the sagging burning tip of the cig. The ad ends with the burning part falling, and the video cuts to a burning skull letting out a bloodcurdling scream.
