* Tori Rivas, the protagonist of ''Literature/ForgingHephaestus'', has this as her power. Unlike some other examples, she can't fly. However, by becoming living flame, her body is virtually invulnerable to most damage. The ability turns on instinctively, if she's in danger, but she can engage it on demand as well. She has also trained herself to throw precise fireballs, such as lighting a cigarette from a room away without singing the fingers of the person holding it. When she joins the Villains' Guild, she is told that each Council member represents a certain group of villains. In her case, she's split between the representative of FreakLabAccident metahumans and the representative of {{Gadgeteer Genius}}es, as she plans to use her science skills to build mechanical suits for herself.

* A "Body of Fire" spell in ''{{Arcanum}}'' allows you to engulf anyboby, including yourself, with flames, resulting in added fire damage and resistance, as well as burning foes and their equipment when they hit the recepient with melee weapon. Howewer, it's the hardest spell to maintain, [[IncrediblyLamePun burning]] your mana at least twice faster than other prolonged spells, perhaps to prevent it from being a GameBreaker.

* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' has a Fire Aura powerset. It also has Thermal Radiation, which has fire for multiple different purposes, such as healing wounds... with fire. Protecting your teammates from damage... with fire. Improving your allies resistance to status effect and improving their damage... with fire. And finally, the only logical use of the powerset -- causing damage to your enemies' resistances and ability to recover from wounds... well, you see where this is headed. The entire Thermal Radiation set is devoted to making your team into [[{{Badass}} badasses]] through the precise art of [[OverlyLongGag setting them on fire.]]

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has the [[BigDamnHeroes Legion of the Damned]] [[ArmyOfTheDead Space]] [[SpaceMarine Marines]], who are like this in all depictions. How much is up to the artist ranging from just their greaves and shoulder-pads (as is on the models and some official artwork) to being ''completely wreathed in flames'' in many artworks.

* The [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Infernal Behemoth]] demon from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' gets an aura of perpetual flame that burns anyone who tries to attack them with martial arts or melee weapons. Made all the more dangerous because they're half-ton armored slabs of [[TheDeterminator Determinator]], so you're going to have to hit one a ''lot'' to take it down.
