* In Creator/LarryNiven's ''[[Literature/KnownSpace World of Ptaavs]]'', a character ''lights the planet Pluto on fire'' with his rocket's exhaust. And yes, [[ScienceMarchesOn it was still a planet at the time.]]

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows'', the final installment to Creator/JKRowling's ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series, Neville is stuck in a body-bind curse with a flaming hat on his head. Once freed, he's ''still'' able to [[spoiler:take out the snake holding the last piece of Voldemort's soul.]] Any wonder he's become the Potterverse's [[ChuckNorrisFacts Chuck Norris]] to the fans?

* Take a Fire Shield with you to Oil Ocean Zone in ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' and you can turn all the oil in the stage into a raging inferno by jumping in. This can also happen if you destroy a Gohla badnik and one of the flames it was shielding itself with falls into an oil pool.

* ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'': When asked for combat advice, Drack inevitably defaults to suggesting setting it on fire. "Generally speaking, people don't like getting set on fire." Ryder cocks a brow at the "generally" and asks what the story is behind that. Drack replies that he was once fighting a rival group of mercenaries, and jumped at them wielding a flamethrower... only to see them all screaming and running in terror. Turned out he'd been doused in turian brandy at some point and had accidentally set himself on fire without realizing it. Getting charged by a yelling krogan who is also on fire was apparently too much for his foes to handle.

* In ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'', this happens to [[spoiler: Double himself]] when [[spoiler: Shotaro executes a twin maximum drive to defeat the Weather Dopant.]] To quote [[Film/{{Se7en}} John Doe]], it didn't work.

to:

* In ''Franchise/KamenRider'', a few Riders have decided an attack while on fire is a good idea.
** Series/KamenRiderRyuki performs his [[FinishingMove Final Vent]] by having his BondCreature (an eastern dragon) launch him at his target with his fire. Ryuki then proceeds to deliver a Rider Kick while on fire. His EvilCounterpart Ryuga's Final Vent is pretty much the same, except with black fire.
** Series/KamenRiderKiva has a variation of his Rider Kick where his dragon/castle Castle Doran propels him into his opponent for a flaming Rider Kick.

** Series/KamenRiderWizard has his Flame Style, and Flame Dragon Style by extension, who's Rider Kick naturally involves his leg lightning on fire and him being on fire when delivering the actual kick.

* ''Videogame/SonicTheHedgehog'' spends pretty much the entirety of ''Sonic and the Secret Rings'' with a head cold ''and a flaming arrow lodged in his chest'', neither of which slow him down in the slightest.

* A good deal of the altered artes throughout the ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' are basically the original arte, but with fire.

** Cave Johnson's infamous WhenLifeGivesYouLemons-speech has an iconic example of this.
--->'''Cave:''' Make life RUE the day it thought it could give CAVE JOHNSON ''LEMONS''! Do you know who I am?! I'm the man who's gonna BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN! WITH THE LEMONS!\\
'''[=GLaDOS=]:''' [[AC: Oh, I like this guy!]]\\
'''Cave:''' I'm going to get my engineers to invent a combustable lemon that [[{{Metaphorgotten}} BURNS YOUR HOUSE DOWN]]!\\
'''[=GLaDOS=]:''' [[AC: BURN HIS HOUSE DOWN!]]\\
''(Cave starts coughing violently)''\\
'''[=GLaDOS=]:''' [[AC: [[ComedicSociopathy Burning people! He says what we're all thinking!]]]]
** In Chapter 9, [[spoiler: Wheatley]] invents [[BuffySpeak Mashy-Spike-Plates]] (which are really just wall panels with spikes welded to them). What makes them fit into this trope is [[spoiler: the fact that Wheatley would like them to shoot fire at you, moments before crushing you]].
** Right before commencing the final BossBattle, [[spoiler: FinalBoss Wheatley]] makes a schedule for the fight, leaving three minutes to kill you, one minute to take a break, and two minutes to find out how to shut down whatever starting all the fires.

* Simultaneously upheld and subverted in ''WesternAnimation/Madagascar3EuropesMostWanted''. Vitaly is so gruff and unwelcoming because [[spoiler:his act was jumping through physically impossibly small hoops (with olive oil as a lubricant). He became so wrapped up in the fame he decided to make it even more sensational by lighting the hoop on fire - al la circus animals leaping through flaming rings. Fire + Olive Oil = Flaming Tiger = Act/Career/Attitude going down (or up?) in flames. Only after Alex's (fireproof) conditioner is used to replace the olive oil is he able to restore the act and the Incendiary Exponent to its rightful power.]]
