* VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft warlocks and mages can set their enemies on fire for short periods of time.

* VideoGame/{{Borderlands}} also features incendiary weapons, which have a chance to set enemies on fire.
** Unfortunately in VideoGame/{{Borderlands}} Incendiary weapons and Explosive Barrels can cause the trope to cut both ways. Also, [[AxCrazy Burning Psychos]] light themselves on fire when they spot you and are immune to incendiary damage.
** Krieg, the playable Psycho in [[VideoGame/{{Borderlands2}} Borderlands 2]], has the Hellborn skill tree, which focuses on incendiary damage. This tree also has skills that gives boosts to various stats while on fire, with the ultimate skill of that tree allowing him to ''shoot fireballs at enemies who attack him while he is on fire''.
