** Several during [[spoiler: the Battle of the Blackwater; {{Justified}} due to copious use of [[GreekFire wildfire]] in combination with flaming arrows. One of them causes the normally BloodKnight Hound to flee the battle, as fire is the only thing he's afraid of due to his face being held in the fire as a child by his abusive elder brother.]]

** The dwarves have a special relationship with fire, mostly because they don't register it as a problem they should solve, and so merrily go about their duties and setting the ''rest'' of the fortress on fire as well.

* Occurs in the second ''Series/HoratioHornblower'' telefilm when Horatio and Captain Foster are trying to steer a fire ship away from the British fleet. Foster catches some flames on his clothes after he almost falls into the burning hold, but Horatio has the sense to smother it with a blanket. Then another spurt of flame catches Horatio's coat on fire, whereupon Foster gets them both into the water.

* Any war film with flamethrowers, napalm, Molotov cocktails, or some other form of [[KillItWithFire incendiary weapon]] will likely feature this trope[[labelnote:*]]unless the filmmakers are [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms trying for a low MPAA rating]][[/labelnote]] but particular mention should go to scenes of the "flamethrower-carrying soldier gets shot in the tank and lights up like a roman candle" variety, which are common enough to practically be their own subtrope:

* In ''Literature/VoidCity'', the vampire Eric has a habit of losing track of the time and getting caught in sunlight, thus causing him to burst into flames. He's powerful enough that it doesn't kill him, but he finds it annoying and embarrassing.

* On one episode of ''The Late Show with DavidLetterman'', a man on fire briefly ran behind Letterman and into the backstage area during his monologue. Normally you'd assume this was part of the act, but Letterman seemed genuinely surprised, and both he and the camera made a point of ignoring the flaming man, and never even mentioned him (there was no laugh track or anything either).
