Shouto notably refused to use his fire powers at the start of the series, because his father is such an asshole that Shouto refused to honor his wish of wielding fire.

* The ''Videogame/FireEmblem'' series has several fire magic tomes that are usable by the [[BlackMage Anima mage]] (sometimes just "Mage") class, from the basic Fire spell that shoots a small fireball at an enemy, to extremely powerful spells like Bolganone, which opens up a volcanic fissure and incinerates enemies with the fiery explosion, or Meteor, which calls down a gigantic flaming meteor that deals damage in an area.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar'' and other games set in the Jugdral setting features a noble house full of mages specializing in Fire Magic, the House of Velthomer. Its leader, Arvis, is known for the ancestral fire tome Valflame, which is not only powerful, but also most famously used to [[spoiler:roast the main character Sigurd to permanent death.]]

** Firebenders in the franchise, obviously. They also have secondary aspects like lightningbending (ShockAndAwe) and combustionbending (explosive lasers, basically). The interesting part is that not ''all'' of them fit the hot-tempered mold that usually goes along with fire powers, given that they are an entire ''culture''. Zuko is plenty hot-headed, but his sister Azula is more cold and cunning, which her blue fire [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience reflects.]] Their father Ozai is somewhere in between, while Iroh has the personality of a warm campfire.
** Aang, on the other hand, once he accepts that Firebending is not BadPowersBadPeople, comes fairly close to Iroh's version of this, though he does become considerably more focused; it's implied that Firebenders have a tendency to become overly intense and {{Determinator}}s.
** The Fire Nation's philosophy of firebending via rage plays a part in their hot-headed tempers; a subset of firebenders who split off from the nation passed onto Iroh, Zuko, and Aang the original, life-affirming form of firebending that averts the need for firebenders to be HotBlooded to [[PsychoactivePowers use their powers]]. It is indicated that this style of firebending allows for far more control than rage-bending does.
** Then there's Mako from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', who's pretty much TheStoic ("cool under fire," as a sports announcer puts it). Korra herself fits the HotBlooded stereotype and it's interesting to note that she will default to fire even though she's a Waterbender by birth.
