* Throwing "fireballs" (actually just flash paper) at an opponent was an occasional heel trick in the 70s and 80s, perhaps most notably used by Wrestling/JerryLawler. Often there is no Kayfabe explanation for it. The first territory to use fire as a hazard during matches was Puerto Rico, specifically CSP.
* The infamous 1992 Wrestling/{{FMW}} Atsushi Onita & Tarzan Goto vs Wrestling/{{Sabu}} & [[Wrestling/EdFarhat Original Sheik]] no rope barbed wire death match, often held up as an argument against GarbageWrestling (or at least the horrific extremes of overdoing it), where the Sheik tried to burn his opponents with a flaming stick and ended up setting the ring on fire. The men then tried to wrestle but not a minute into the match the ring started to melt, causing them to all panic and dive out under the flames...except for the Sheik himself, who caught on fire and chastised Sabu for using water to reduce his burns because it prevented him from throwing {{fire balls}} at what he thought was the perfect time.
* In his wilder and younger days, Wrestling/MickFoley was known to do some fire-based stunts, including what he himself calls the incredibly stupid innovation of the Fire Chair--a metal folding chair wrapped in a flaming, gas-soaked rag, and used as a club. He swore off this gimmick after nearly killing Wrestling/TerryFunk with it, but has played with fire from time to time since, most notably in his Wrestling/WrestleMania match with Wrestling/{{Edge}}.

* WWE/F tried to create a fire-based gimmick match, the Inferno. While this looked cool, it made the match a bore, since the wrestlers were effectively trapped in the ring, and were taking too-obvious care to avoid the open flames.

* Fire is the element that draws from the Red Moon in ''SkiesOfArcadia'', and it also provides status buffs. [[TheHero Vyse]] has the second-weakest magical power in the game (the weakest being [[MightyGlacier Drachma]]), but he can learn all of the fire spells quicker than the others. And though Aika learns [[GreenThumb nature spells]] the quickest, all of her Super Moves are fire-based.

A person with fire power often possesses - get this - [[PersonalityPowers a fiery personality]]. You could say that they are HotBlooded, [[FourTemperamentEnsemble choleric,]] or that the flame of passion burns within them. And who knows, maybe their [[HurricaneOfPuns burning anger]] [[PsychoactivePowers powers their burning hands]]; it's certainly possible for it to make them literally [[BurningWithAnger burn from anger]]. They also tend to be [[AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance redheads]] (or dye their hair). They may even give you due warning by being {{Fiery Redhead}}s. If they're also a PyroManiac, [[AxCrazy heaven help you]].

** Shinigami head captain Shigekuni Yamamoto-Genryusai uses the sword Ryujin Jakka (Flowing Flame Blade) but defies the personality portion of this trope by having learned self-control (a thousand years ago, he was much more thuggish and hot-headed). His zanpakuto's release command is "Reduce all creation to ashes, Ryuujin Jakka!" and the initial release can create an inferno capable of engulfing an entire town. Anyone within range tends to react with justifiable fear. His Bankai becomes ThePowerOfTheSun. [[spoiler:All of the flames are concentrated into the blade, and create an invisible armour of flame around both the sword and Yamamoto's body. Anything the blade touches is incinerated and anything that touches Yamamoto's body is incinerated. All of the moisture in Seireitei evaporates, and if the Bankai remains active too long, the world will be destroyed. Its maximum heat is the same as the core of the Sun - 1.5 million degrees.]]

* Shizuma Kusanagi from ''Manga/RealBoutHighSchool'' is a HotBlooded brawler with fiery moves...that are usually performed with alcohol and a disposable lighter. The important thing is it still works like Kyo's moves do, and they still involve a great deal of physical exertion.

* Celestia gets some aspects of this ability in the [[FanFic/TriptychContinuum Triptych Continuum]], which seems to be a unique side effect stemming from her link to Sun. However, she hasn't been shown to generate direct flame. Instead, she seems to create pure ''heat'', apparently from nowhere. (This is in contrast to pegasi who know the heat-shifting ''technique'': hot spots can be created -- by lowering the temperature somewhere else.) She can channel this on a very small and subtle scale: in particular, she can literally burn out infections. However, when she gets upset, the temperature in her vicinity tends to spike... [[spoiler: [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/131321/a-mark-of-appeal A Mark Of Appeal]] shows her having a nightmare in which the ability goes out of control, sending Equestria into literal meltdown.]]

To a lesser extent, Asriel, the two's deceased son, can also use this, although he only ever uses a fire attack if the player allows him to take his turn quickly enough]].
