* The historical OdaNobunaga (''not'' the demonic, made a DealWithTheDevil, comic book SuperVillain one that appears in many anime) had a rather disturbing fondness for this. It began with the burning of the Mt. Hiei buddhist temples, (and the slaughter of its thousands of residents) and culminated in the Siege of Nagashima, (another warrior monk stronghold) where he forced the defenders into their entirely wooden inner fortifications, built a wall around said fortifications, then lit the building on fire. Not a single one of 20,000 people inside escaped alive.

* ''FanFic/AdoptedDisplaced'' - ''Wily's Wittle Wub'': During the arc based on ''Mega Man 4'', Toad Man does a certain... impression (personality-wise, he's essentially a mix of [[WesternAnimation/FernGullyTheLastRainforest Hexxus]] and [[Film/RockyHorrorPictureShow Dr. Frank N Furter]]). Mega Man's response is to freak out, fire an endless barrage of charged shots, and then namedrop this trope and somehow summon a flamethrower. Toad Man doesn't survive the ensuing attack.

** Stannis Baratheon has those of his subjects (even his brother-in-law) who won't convert to the Lord of Light burned at the stake. This appears to be the preferred method of execution for the Lord's enemies, according to Tyrion Lannister at least. Later Mance Rayder is also burned at the stake when he refuses to accept Stannis's authority, though Jon [[MercyKill shoots him to end it]]. Finally Stannis sacrifices his own daughter this way on the advice of his Red Priestess Melisandre to the Lord of Light so the snows will clear and he can attack Winterfell.

See also IncendiaryExponent, ManOnFire, BurnBabyBurn, FireBreathingWeapon, and {{Hellfire}} (for when mundane fire doesn't do the job). Compare StuffBlowingUp, and PlayingWithFire -- for when someone has fire as a StockSuperpower. When this just makes things worse, see InfernalRetaliation. The less-used opposite is either KillItWithWater or KillItWithIce, or even HealItWithFire.
