* 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).

* Among the many religious or mystical denominations in ''FadingSuns'', the Templar Avesti are the most prone to a Kill It With Fire approach. Their church's symbol is a holy flame. Avestite inquisitors and zealot monks wear fire-retardant robes with breathing masks and carry flame throwers when they do battle with mutated monstrosities.

* Master Ferus of ''Literature/TheCinderSpires'' is usually genial, and generally acclaimed to be [[BewareTheSillyOnes silly]]. However, send a task force to invade his home, and ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill.

When Prometheus handed ''Homo Erectus'' the gift of fire, he did not just give humanity the light of science, reason, progress, invention, technology, and ergo the power to rival {{God}}, but also the means to dispatch just about any monster imaginable. Considering how Myth/GreekMythology is a FantasyKitchenSink full of all kinds of abominations, that was a ''good thing.'' The symbolism behind this has to do with fire's associations with [[FirePurifies purification]] and {{light|IsGood}}, and partly because it represents humanity's dominion over the natural world. More literally, a burning stick was humankind's first effective defence against nocturnal predators, with an added bonus of extermination of parasites in food. The fact that burn pain is one of the strongest kinds of pain a human being can experience probably doesn't hurt either.

* In ''Literature/TheWhiteRabbitChronicles'', this is the only way to end zombies for good. In the [[SpiritWorld spirit realm]], a slayer can summon [[FirePurifies white fire]] in his or her hands which is used to "ash" the zombies.
