* In Franchise/{{Superman}} storyline ''Comicbook/KryptonNoMore'' a crook tries to torch Superman with a flamethrower. It would seem it is his standard operating procedure since he holds that it always works and he is actually shocked when Superman doesn't get burned.

** In ''Comicbook/WarWorld'', Superman gets forced to fight Comicbook/MartianManhunter, and although he doesn't want to kill J'onn, he knows fire weakens Martians, so he uses his heat vision to ignite the ground around them, and then he punches J'onn out.

*** Walker's preferred fighting method seems to be lighting people on fire. Later on, he uses flammable fluid as a method of intimidation, a spray can and a lighter to defend himself from rogue Dollars members, [[spoiler:and he sets Ran Izumii on fire ''again''. ''Twice.'']]. It's especially ironic because of his day job as an ice sculptor.

* ''CrimsonSkies'' has an aircraft in it called the Blackflag ''[[MeaningfulName Firestorm]].'' The plane earned that particular name when one of the first prototype fighters' guns were loaded with magnesium rounds and it spread so much fire across the sky that onlookers had thought the air itself had burst into flames.

* The ComicBook/MartianManhunter generally has powers on par with ComicBook/{{Superman}}, plus a few extra--but [[WeaksauceWeakness he's not fireproof]]. DC seems to [[YoYoPlotPoint keep going back and forth]] on whether this is a physical vulnerability or a psychological problem.

* Aside from sonic weapons, fire is the only other weapon generally effective against the symbiotes that give {{Spider-Man}} such a hard time.

*Dahlia Sin'Felle uses the lightning properties of her weapon in ''Literature/CompanionsCodex'' to set fire to a female drider that was cornering her and Effron during an ambush in Port Llast. This incident comes back to haunt them, when it turns out that said drider was the lover of Yerinninae, the Xorlarrin's strongest drider, who is now bent on revenge.

* Black Mage's spells in ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'' tend to be heavily into fire, with a side order of lightning. This being Black Mage, it's rare for him to use them reliably against the enemy; if anything, they're more reliably used against innocent bystanders, small animals, Red Mage, the scenery and Fighter. Red Mage also attempts it at one point when Black Mage has [[ComedicSociopathy set him on fire]], insisting that he wants to keep burning because it gives him a high-damage hug attack.
-->'''BM:''' Red Mage is the best damn kindling this team has ever had!

* This trope is good against toxic waste (against any organic material, especially the annoying dioxine and its PCB ilk). Unfortunately, only slightly effective against heavy metals and zero against radioactive waste (the best you might achieve is turn the stuff into less soluble compounds). One can and does treat "normal" waste this way too, but that propably isn't the best method from an environmental perspective--although that can be highly situation-dependent, especially when you're dealing with the trash of a large and densely-populated urban area, where the pollution from just burning your trash somewhere in or near the city is probably less than what you would generate transporting the trash to somewhere it can be buried. UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity has been grappling with this problem for ''decades'', as the nearby landfills in the city (in Queens and Staten Island) are closed for being beyond capacity, and the ones near the city (largely in New Jersey) are also full or close to full, leaving New York with the options of shipping its trash far away (like "there's NYC trash in landfills in Ohio and South Carolina" far away) or burning it; NIMBY issues with incinerators have kept the city from adopting that option (which is probably better than shipping the stuff to Ohio, at least).
