Added DiffLines:

* 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.]]

** In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince'', Dumbledore fends of the Inferi by surrounding them with a rope of magical fire. In the [[Film/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince movie adaptation]], he conjures a freaking '''''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZTeHYpGq9E firestorm]]'''''.

* In the third ''Literature/EmpireFromTheAshes'' book, Stomald douses the "demon" Sandy (who had an invisible personal force field on) in holy oil. Sandy issues forth a booming laugh, uses a nearby torch to ''set herself on fire'', and then ''[[InfernalRetaliation keeps going]]'' toward Stomald, laughing and ranting about Stomald's sinful nature. Stomald shits bricks. Great success!

* The ''Literature/{{Ramayana}}'' has the villainous Rakshavas set fire to Hanumann's tail. He escapes and leaps from building to building, setting the entire city on fire with his tail.

* In the LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' "{{Boatmurdered}}," a legendary engraver ex-mayor slaughtered four dwarves while on fire. Then he beat up a dwarf who came to stop him so hard '''that dwarf caught on fire'''... and then the fort [[TrashTheSet burned to the ground]] while the remaining inhabitants slaughtered each other in paroxysms of grief and rage until only the current ruler and a little girl were still alive. ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' [[strike:does not handle fire well]] handles fire perfectly.

** This is why Pyros are the best Spychecker. Friendly Fire is in effect so trying to burn a bonafide teammate does no damage and doesn't ignite them. If a "teammate" lights on fire, they're an enemy Spy.

* ''VideoGame/DotHackGU'' Azure Flame Kite certainly lives up to his name. He travels about as a flying ball of blue flame, and is often seen wreathed in blue fire seemingly for no reason other than it makes him look incredibly BadAss.

* Westley in ''Film/ThePrincessBride'' is well aware of this trope. When the heroes have to [[StormingTheCastle storm the castle]] he has Fezzik (played by AndreTheGiant) climb on top a wheelbarrow and then sets the giant on fire. The image of a ten foot tall floating man on fire claiming to be the Dread Pirate Roberts who leaves no survivors is enough to scare the sixty men guarding the gate. Fezzik at least has a holocaust cloak which supposedly prevents a person from burning to death and even then it doesn't make it pleasant.
