** In "Peter's Def Jam", Peter realizes he's gone deaf when he can't hear Meg's screams as she runs into his room while on fire.



* Self-inflicted on an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Sealab 2021}}''. The crew are camping in the woods, only to discover it full of "Tree-snakes." They realize the snakes are repelled by the light, so they don't come near the campfire. [[TooDumbToLive Stormy]] at once proclaims, "So if we light ''ourselves'' on fire, we can go anywhere!" before dousing himself in gasoline and striking a match.

* When a heavily enhanced Juggernaut attacked the ComicBook/{{X-Men}} during "Comicbook/FearItself", Adam-X was utilized as [[TryEverything one of many plans to defeat him]]. Adam-X has the ability to set people's blood on fire. He does this to the Juggernaut... which does nothing except set him on fire, making him angrier and torching everything in sight for fifteen minutes.

* ''Series/LondonsBurning'': A particularly frightening example happens when Blue Watch are responding to a fire in an apartment complex. Just as they're preparing to force the door and send in the BA crew, it crashes open and a burning woman runs out screaming, then falls over the walkway railings and plummets thre storeys to the ground. Even the veteran firefighters are visibly shocked at the sight.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' features a character ''literally'' called the Man on Fire, and he lives up to the reputation with pyrokinesis in addition to his EnergyAbsorption abilities, as well as constantly being WreathedInFlames. [[spoiler: Turns out he is actually Colonel Volgin from ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater Snake Eater]]'' as a revived corpse who is [[PowerOfHate Powered By Hate]] and traded out his ShockAndAwe powers.]]
** A more mundane form of this trope can be found in [[spoiler: Quiet's]] backstory. [[spoiler: She was originally an assassin sent to murder Big Boss after the events of Ground Zeroes, but was set on fire by Ishmael to drive her off. Due to the pain from her burns she took the Parasite Therapy developed by Skull Face to help take the edge off and heal the visible wounds, and she dresses skimpily due to clothing interfering with her {{Invisibility}} power and causing her ''extreme'' pain from the burns.]]

to:

* The ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' franchise has a history of people on fire.
** In ''VideoGame/MetalGear2SolidSnake'', after beating Metal Gear D, Snake is on fire, [[spoiler: forcing him to have to dump his entire inventory to put it out. He then has to beat [[BigBad Big Boss]] by setting ''him'' on fire]].
** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid: [[VideoGameRemake The Twin Snakes]]'', after beating the tank, the gunner is thrown from it while on fire. He [[AmusingInjuries gets up screaming]], and Solid Snake simply punches him in the face, knocking him out.
** ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'' features The Fury, who has a flamethrower powered by ''rocket fuel'' (as it's tied to his jetpack), and he spends the entire boss battle trying to set Naked Snake on fire. When you defeat him, he's the one on fire instead.
*** Then there's [[spoiler: the final battle with [[GeneralRipper Colonel Volgin]] and the Shagohod. After beating him, Volgin [[TemptingFate tempts fate]] by laughing off a thunderstorm, only to be struck by lightning and set on fire in the process]].

* Richard Pryor set himself on fire while freebasing and ran down the street while ablaze in 1980. In his next big special, he [[TakeThatUs made jokes about it]]. Although his daughter Rain speculated that this was actually [[DrivenToSuicide a suicide attempt]].
* Has happened more than once in UsefulNotes/FormulaOne and other racing sports. Some fuel sprinkles here, then it catched heat, and BOOM. Jos Verstappen's case is the most recent, but Niki Lauda and ''specially'' [[TearJerker poor Riccardo Paletti]] take the cake.
