* In ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'', using fire against the Flood can sometimes lead to this. Sticky grenades [[OhCrap had a similar effect]] in the earlier games. Subverted completely with the Pure Form Flood, as they die near instantly from Firebomb grenades or the Flamethrower and it's even the ''recommended'' way to deal with them in the official StrategyGuide (the fact that most levels with high concentrations of them often gives you a Flamethrower or two in conspicuous spots should also be a hint).

* Happens in one of ''VideoGame/CorpseParty's'' [[NonStandardGameOver Wrong Ends]] when Yoshiki tries to fend off a sentient anatomical model by setting it alight with a Bunsen burner. The model collapses into a pile, then quickly gets back up and kills Yoshiki by embracing him while still on fire.

* The two main enemies in ''VideoGame/AlienIsolation'', the titular [[LightningBruiser Alien]] and the [[MightyGlacier Working]] [[AIIsACrapshoot Joes]], react this way when you shoot them with a jury-rigged [[KillItWithFire flamethrower]]. At first, the Alien will retreat, but use it too much, and [[ItCanThink it will learn the range of the weapon, staying far enough that you can't hit it]], and on higher difficulties, may even NoSell the attack. The Working Joes, being androids, don't even react outside of [[RedEyesTakeWarning becomine hostile]].

* In the ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9843790/1/Magic-of-a-Young-Girl-s-Heart Magic of a Young Girl's Heart]'', Annie blasts a KillerRobot named Vigil with fire magic. It barely hurts the machine, but it does make its external armor very hot, meaning it can seriously burn its enemies just by touching them.

* It's possible to set [[Disney/PeterPan Captain Hook's]] pants on fire if you light him up with a Fira spell in the original ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI''. However, he could damage you by flying into you as he's bouncing around his ship to get the fire out.

* Territorial Oaks in ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' are a special kind of evil: Not only do they burst into flames automatically when you kill them through ''any'' means, but this deals instant damage in the ''hundreds'', which you can only survive if you have enough HP left for the rolling health meter to stop before you leave the battle screen. Did we mention that your maximum HP at the point where you start to encounter them is likely to be in the ballpark of 150?

* In the classic ''ComicBook/{{Spider-Man}}'' story ''Nothing Stops The Juggernaut'', Spidey tries increasingly destructive methods to stagger the unstoppable X-men foe, culminating with blowing up a tanker truck of gasoline. Juggernaut is unharmed, but now ''on fire''.



* It happens again in the ''ComicBook/XMen'' issues of ''Comicbook/FearItself'', when Juggernaut is possessed by a godlike being (which means that he's now empowered by ''two gods'' instead of the usual one) and Cyclops rolls out several battle plans to stop him. All are ineffective, but then we get to this:
