* The titular ''LiveActionTelevision/MythBusters'' are self-professed pyromaniacs as they absolutely love to light things ablaze and [[MadBomber blow stuff up]]. Thankfully they channel it ForScience

*** As cleansing fire is quite effective as a demonstration of what happens when you turn to Chaos, many Inquisition-affiliated factions have people who are living the dream of setting things on fire and getting rewarded for it.

*** As cleansing fire is quite effective as a demonstration of what happens when you turn to Chaos, many Inquisition-affiliated factions have people who are living the dream of setting things on fire and getting rewarded for it. The Sisters of Battle are a playable faction particularly infamous for it given that they're known for being highly fanatical and their rules in simple terms allow for a ''lot'' of flame weapons to end up on their side of the battlefield.
*** The Salamanders chapter of the Space Marines are from a volcanic planet with a constantly shifting gravity, generally have had rules boosting the effectiveness of their flame-based weapons, and their culture even includes numerous ''very intensive'' rituals for deaths, mostly involving cremation. [[Memes/TabletopGames Pyromania jokes]] just write themselves from there.

** This appears to be a genetic trait among the Targaryens, many of whom have an obsession with heat or fire and (sometimes correctly) believe themselves immune to it.

** This appears to be a genetic trait among the Targaryens, many of whom have an obsession with heat or fire and (sometimes correctly) believe themselves immune to it. They also have a fixation on lost dragons. Aerys Targaryen's last words were "Burn them all." Also, that's how he killed Ned's father. Since he did not have dragons, he decided the next best thing was burning people so he could pretend to be one.

* Aerys Targaryen, "The Mad King", from ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' eventually became a full-fledged pyromaniac. Jamie reveals in book four that the king, late on in the marriage, was generally 'uninterested' in the queen except for on days when he'd seen someone burned to death in front in him.

* ''Series/NewTricks'': In "Where There's Smoke", the team investigate the death of a LondonGangster in a suspicious pub fire. Only initially convinced that the fire was set to kill the gangster, Brian realises that it is almost impossible to reliably start a fire in the method that the arsonist used unless you are very practiced. He discovers that the fire was actually the work of a serial arsonist, and the deaths were incidental. The serial arsonist turns out to be [[spoiler:a retired Metrpolitan Fire Brigade fire investigator, who had responsibility for investigating his own arsons.]]

* It's implied in ''GearsOfWar 2'' that Delta squad rookie [[MauveShirt Ben Carmine]] is somewhat pyromaniacal, with Marcus and Dom remarking on his love of fire and how he was always talking about it. This is reinforced by his multiplayer lines when he picks up and uses a flamethrower ("AHAHAHA, burn, bitch!")
