* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': [[spoiler:The final enemy -a clone of [[HumanoidAbomination Kaworu]]]] tries to burn [[spoiler:Rei]] down. It doesn’t work: he sets fire to her clothes but she remains untouched.

* ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan:''
** In order to dispose of the Venom sample and Carnage (not at the same time), Peter drops them down a smoke-stack.
** Johnny Storm tries this when dealing with the Green Goblin. Unfortunately, it not only doesn't work, it temporarily makes Norman ''stronger''.

**However perhapse the supreme masters of this trope in the setting are the Marines of the Salamanders legion, almost their entire ranged weapons arsenal is made up of flame throwers, even their tanks.

* In AnneMcCaffrey's ''Literature/DragonridersOfPern'' series, fire spewed by male and green dragons (and flamethrowers wielded by queenriders and ground crews) are the primary means of fighting Threadfall.

* Although all the ElementalPowers in ''Literature/CodexAlera'' are useful in war, using firecrafting to make a FlamingSword is a common tactic when High Lords are fighting because wounds that have been cauterized are extremely difficult for watercrafters to heal. Fire is also handy against [[HordeOfAlienLocusts the Vord]], since the ''croach'' they rely on to keep them alive is very flammable.

Added DiffLines:

** Firecrafting can also induce powerful emotions, like passion and fear. First Lord Gaius Sextus once wields a flaming blade so powerful with this firecrafting-induced fear, men just dropped dead from their fear killing them.
** In ''First Lord's Fury'' Tavi learns that [[spoiler:while bonding with a fury to make it loyal to the person requires watercrafting, another person can disupt that basic process with firecrafting, freeing the fury]].

* Subverted in ''Film/TheTerminator'', when destroying the titular indestructible death-robot's gasoline truck seems to work for a little bit, but his creepy-ass metal endoskeleton just gets up again after a few seconds, despite the fact that all its skin just got burned off. When fire just isn't hot enough, you can always try molten iron, as in the 2nd film.

This is prevalent not just in myth and fiction or games based on it, but also in works that are completely new and unrelated. For example, the Hydra and Trolls demonstrate one of the most frequent, and logical, applications for anti-monster fire: It prevents [[HealingFactor regeneration]]. [[BurnTheUndead In the case of]] TheUndead, usually they're too dumb and slow to put it out (zombies), it reminds them of the sun (vampires), or they're already walking kindling (mummies). Other times it's used to make sure whatever just got killed ''[[FireKeepsItDead stays]]'' [[FireKeepsItDead that way]]. Aliens, of course, can be ImmuneToBullets, but will burn up nicely in fire and not go into BodyHorror. Witches and [[TheHeretic heretics]] for a long time were considered to be in league with evil as well, and so it was a common myth that they were [[BurnTheWitch dealt with in the same manner]].

Not to be confused with [[FryingPanOfDoom Kill It With Fryer]], [[BadassPreacher Kill It With Friar]] (though Friars often love to kill Daemons with Fire), [[RazorFloss Kill It With Wire]], or [[DeathGlare Kill It With Ire]]. Or ExampleSectionectomy for that matter, although often this trope tends to be used as a PotholeMagnet for such by Administrivia/TropeRepairShop users [[{{Irony}} that want to kill Pothole Magnets]].
