* Averted in ''TheTerminator''. When Kyle Reese manages to blow up the fuel truck that the eponymous cyborg is driving, the ensuing fireball burns away the Terminator's clothing and flesh, revealing the metal skeleton underneath. The metal is also shown to be a very strong futuristic alloy.

* In one episode of ''{{Smallville}}'', Clark does the same thing to protect a young boy from a meteor. The flames engulf both, but since the boy is "shielded" by Clark, he's unharmed.
** This is particulary strange, as the meteor in question is a ''lump of kryptonite'', so Clark should be in worse shape than the boy.

* In the first episode of ''SamuraiChamploo'' this seems to be the case when the two lead ronin launch into a duel inside a burning teashop. Ultimately, they're knocked out by the smoke and pulled from the ruins by less-than-helpful rescuers.

* In ''Videogame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesTheArcadeGame'', the first level is like this. Flames span the bottom of the screen throughout the entire stage, even after you go into the room at the end of the hall, where the only smoke in the level is found. In the arcade version, there are also occasional patches of fire on the ground. None of the fire in the level hurts you even if you walk right into it.

* In ''Videogame/FinalFantasyVI'', the party's visit to Thamasa culminates with them having to enter a burning house to rescue Relm. Despite the fact that the walls are completely ablaze and the halls are patrolled by flaming, self-exploding bomb monsters, the heroes have no trouble breathing or walking around, even taking the opportunity to sidetrack for some rare loot. It's not until after the boss fight that the group realize they're trapped and collapse. [[spoiler:Even then, Shadow comes to the rescue, because ninjas are too cool for flames.]]

He conceals the party's escape from the encroaching monsters with-- seriously-- a smoke bomb.]]

Related to ConvectionSchmonvection and OutrunTheFireball. Often the only explanation for how a [[TheHero Hero]] can walk OutOfTheInferno and not be burnt to a cinder.

cinder. For materials that burn far more easily in fiction than in RealLife, see MadeOfIncendium.

* Averted thoroughly by ''FiremanSam'', which was as realistic as the special effects and the target demographic permitted; fires create large amounts of smoke, and they also made a point of showing the crew donning proper breathing apparatus before entering a burning building. Considering that every episode contained AnAesop about fire safety this is only natural.

* Frozone and Mister Incredible are able to talk and move normally while rescuing people from a building fire in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles''. Possibly [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by the fact that Frozone is AnIcePerson (even if he's out of water), while Mister Incredible is invulnerable.
** [[FridgeBrilliance Fridge Brilliance.]] The reason Frozone is dehydrated even though he knew that he was going off to do Hero Work is because his body is passively using all of his water to keep him alive in the burning building.

* There's a bit in ''Discworld/GoingPostal'' where this trope is explicitly reference. Moist von Lipwig goes into a burning building to save a cat, and doesn't leave when he has the opportunity because "A man that goes into a burning building to save a cat and does so, is a hero. A man that comes without a cat is just a toff." Paraphrased.

* Averted in the [[{{Hobos}} hobo]] movie ''EmperorOfTheNorth''; Ernest Borgnine's character briefly climbs inside a burning boxcar, and proceeds to almost cough his lungs out from smoke inhalation.
* Averted in {{Hancock}} where we see the eponymous hero after putting out an apartment fire. His clothes are mostly burned away, and for all of his invulnerability, he still admits that he was hurt.
