* Pyromania (called "Firebug") is a mental disorder in ''WarhammerFantasyRoleplay'', which forces the character to roll willpower whenever given a chance to start a fire (which is surprisingly often) and gives Fellowship penalties from depression whenever the character isn't setting fire to stuff. Most characters who acquire it tend to live short, interesting lives before being put down by law enforcement or their fellow party members after setting fire to something they really shouldn't. And if the party [[PlayingWithFire Red Wizard]] ever gets it, run. Run like your pants are on fire, which they will be shortly if you do not.

** Though the encyclopedia relased in 2011 gives a large dose of realism, saying that anyone who used a flamethrower in active service is prescribed psychological assessment immediately afterwards.

** The song ''Feuer Frei'' means "fire at will", ''Benzin'' is "gasoline". There's also ''Mein Herz brennt'' (my heart is burning), ''Sonne'' (sun), ''Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen'' (do you want to see the bed on fire), ''Feuer und Wasser'' (fire and water). ''Asche zu Asche'' (ash to ash) is about being burnt at the stake. Even the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vp9z-9RdwwM&feature=related bands name]] is a reference to an air show disaster which is famous for the video footage of a huge fireball of a plane crashing into a crowd of spectators.

* Judge Fire, a villain from the ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' comics, is a skeletal HangingJudge wreathed in flames. He gained his powers because he preferred burning people alive as the means of execution, starting with a primary school that he burned to the ground for "[[AllCrimesAreEqual noise violations]]".

* A trait in ''TheSims 3'', which ironically is only found in natural children of NPC firefighters. They can set things on fire, turn fruits into flame fruit, and survive longer while on fire.
