->'''Dr. [=McNinja=]:''' Oh, alright, the [[McNinja ninja poseurs]] out there now? They light you on fire? I guess I can spare a sec to get nuts on some punkers.\\
'''Dan [=McNinja=]:''' No. I lit myself on fire. Anyway, I got in pretty deep, and now these tootlepuffs are trying to get me all the time.\\
'''Dr. [=McNinja=]:''' You. Lit. Yourself. On fire. ''Why did you light yourself on fire.''\\
'''Dan [=McNinja=]:''' Huh? Seriously? Because. ''[[CrazyAwesome They can't grab me]] [[MemeticMutation if I'm on fire]].''
-->-- ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja''[[note]]Good thing about his [[http://drmcninja.com/archives/comic/5p47 fine fire proof ninja suit.]][[/note]]

A subtrope of PlayingWithFire.

A character has the ability to set their ''whole'' body ablaze with flames. Different from ManOnFire, as the latter trope involves that person being harmed by said fire. Because fire is awesome, this makes the character [[IncendiaryExponent automatically awesome]]. If they can turn it on or off, expect them to enjoy showing off via FingerSnapLighter. May be a form of BattleAura. FlamingHair is a subtrope of this, where a person can only ignite their hair. By their nature, the character is not harmed by setting themselves on fire -- they have the RequiredSecondaryPowers .

If the character ''becomes'' fire and is not simply covered in it, then the trope is ElementalShapeshifter. May count as ElementalArmor. An extreme part of BurningWithAnger.

!!Examples

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]]
* The Winged Dragon of Ra in ''Anime/YuGiOh'' does this. They call his ignited form a phoenix.
* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''
** When Might Guy [[DangerousForbiddenTechnique opens up the 6th Chakra Gate]] he is able to use the Morning Peacock technique: RapidFireFisticuffs that go ''so'' fast [[ArtMajorPhysics the punches make shock-waves whose friction set the air on fire.]]
** [[spoiler:Naruto's chakra cloak when in full control of the fox]] looks quite a lot like fire.
* [[PlayingWithFire Fire magic]] users on ''LightNovel/KazeNoStigma'' do this often.
* Sekima Hiwatari of BusouRenkin.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'': Natsu's Flames Of Emotion gives him this effect.
** [[spoiler: During the Grand Magic Games, one the dragons who comes out of the Eclipse Gate, Atlas Flame, has fire literally in place of skin, giving off the overall impression of a burning dragon skeleton.]]
* Tsuna of ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''! has his hands and forehead covered by Sky Flames when he goes [[SuperMode Hyper]] [[TranquilFury Dying]] [[HyperAwareness Will]] Mode.
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' the Head Captain of Soul Society Yamamoto has this ability as his Bankai. A flame 15,000,000 degrees (almost as hot as the core of the sun itself) envelops his body acting as a shield that nothing can penetrate and incinerates everything in its path. Yamamoto claims this flame is so powerful that even he can't control it, if it burns for too long it will consume him and all of Soul Society.
* Ace and Marco from ''Manga/OnePiece'' get this when fighting with their Devil fruit powers, although both have slight twists; Ace is [[ElementalShapeshifter literally made of flames, being a logia user]], and Marco's fire is blue, and heals him over time, since it's the flames of a phoenix. Marco's flames are also only capable of healing, as they aren't hot nor spread like normal fire, and thus incapable of damaging enemies, according to WordOfGod.
** Sanji, post-timeskip, is now able to [[spoiler: weaponize his emotions: His Hell Memories attack consists of remembering his painful time in Kamabakka Kingdom, start BurningWithAnger, and deliver an insanely powerful kick as a result]]. In addition to that, he even gets a non-canon variation in ''[[Anime/OnePieceFilmZ Film Z]]'', where he [[spoiler: instead sets himself ablaze [[HotBlooded with memories of]] [[ChivalrousPervert Nami's sexiness]]]].
* Starjun from ''{{Toriko}}'' used this to burn down a tent around him during the Cooking Fest, he [[CallingYourAttacks called]] it "Camp Fire".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:ComicBooks]]
* ''Franchise/MarvelUniverse'':
** The Human Torch from ''ComicBook/FantasticFour''. The Torch has the RequiredSecondaryPowers and feels no pain from burning.
** The original GoldenAge Human Torch and his sidekick Toro. And their ModernAge DistaffCounterpart Tara.
** Vessels of the Phoenix tend to exhibit this, from Jean Grey to Rachel Summers to Hope Summers to [[ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen the Phoenix Five]] (or [[ComicBook/WhatIf Magneto]]) to [[spoiler:Quentin Quire]].
* Fire from Creator/DCComics. Her fire is green and [[CensorSteam covers her naughty bits]].
* [[http://www.costumzee.com/view/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/300px-thefallen.jpg The Fallen]] from the Franchise/{{Transformers}} Comics takes this to the extreme by not only being permanently on fire, but ''having flames inside his body.''
* Judge Fire, from ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'', [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as one would expect from the name]].
* Liz Sherman from ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}'' can do this.
* Blue Fire from ''Wham Comics'' is covered in blue flames when manifesting his powers.
* Snowflame from ''ComicBook/TheNewGuardians'' is an [[EnsembleDarkhorse extremely popular]] [[OneSceneWonder one-off villain]] who appears in ''Guardians #2''. He is the poster boy for AddictionPowered, gaining superpowers by using cocaine, and becomes covered in psychokinetic fire when he's gotten mind-numbingly high. He self-ignites dramatically after shoving his face into giant, heaping handfuls of powdered crack and inhaling enough to have theoretically filled his lungs completely with drugs.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Fanfic]]
* In ''Fanfic/TheMoonstoneCup'', the ActionPrologue features a dragon the size of a mountain facing down Twilight Sparkle, intent on sending her to [[ManOnFire Mare On Fire]] for however long it takes to turn a pony into a fine sprinkle of ash. '[[OhCrap Its breath died away. Its one good eye opened wide in shock as Twilight, with no help from the dragon, burst into flame.]]'
* In ''Fanfic/RitesOfAscension'', during a coup, Celestia becomes this. In her case, she's ''holding back''. Unlike Luna, who's WeakButSkilled relative to her (and ONLY her), Celestia's last time in a full-on fight made the Glass Desert.
--> 'I can’t fight anymore, Twilight. I’ve become far too much like the sun I represent. I can guide my ponies from afar, but when I get too close... it all just ''burns''.'
[[/folder]]

[[folder:{{Film}} - Animation]]
* Monstrous Nightmares in ''Film/HowToTrainYourDragon'' can do this.
* One of Jack-Jack's powers in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' is this.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:{{Film}} - Live Action]]
* Fezzik, from ''Film/ThePrincessBride'', with the holocaust cloak, in a wheelbarrow on fire. "There will be no suwvivows!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:LiveActionTV]]
* A villainous super in ''NoOrdinaryFamily'' can do this, as well as throw fireballs. [[spoiler: He's defeated by being buried in sand.]]
* ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger'': Magired does this during his "Red Fire Phoenix" FinishingMove.
* Similarly, ''Series/KamenRiderOOO'' in his [=TaJaDor=] form's FinishingMove.
* Certain Makai Knights from ''{{Garo}}'' are able to wreath their armor in magical flames. This also allows them to throw said fire towards enemies.
* The serial killer in episode 5 of ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'' sees each of his victims as having their head consumed in flames.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:{{Literature}}]]
* The Balrog in ''Literature/LordOfTheRings''.
* Semirhage from ''Literature/WheelOfTime'' uses this as a disguise (though it is probably only an illusion).
* Katniss of ''Literature/TheHungerGames'' is called ''the girl who was on fire'' for a reason. [[spoiler:This is applied literally in ''Mockingjay'' when she is caught up in the fireball that kills several medics - including her 13-year-old sister, who becomes "a human torch" according to Katniss.]]
* Red of ''Literature/{{Monster}}'' can do this.
* Firebirds of [[RussianMythologyAndTales Russian mythology]] (not to be confused with ThePhoenix, though they have several similarities). Depending on the version, they were either ''literally'' on fire or just glow-in-the-dark. Most people assume the former, since it's infinitely more badass.
** For that matter, the original phoenix was a perfectly normal-looking bird, with fire only getting involved when it died/was reborn. Most modern incarnations ignore this and light it on fire 24/7 because -- well, [[RuleOfCool because it's awesome]].
* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' book ''Ghost Story'', Harry learns that things work a bit differently [[spoiler: now that he's a ghost. Sort of. When he gets angry, his entire body starts to burn, and it actually blisters him.]]
* Happens occasionally in the ''{{Branion}}'' series, where the royal family are also avatars of a fire god. Usually happens in battle or when they're angry, and has the side effect of painting any wood around them a permanent red.
* Leo from ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'' pulls this off in the climax of ''The Lost Hero'', when fighting Khione, the winter goddess. And it is [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome just as awesome as it sounds]].
* Senneth Brassenthwaite from the ''Literature/TwelveHouses'' series does this from time to time, sometimes as a method of combat, sometimes just to make a point.
* Phoenixes in ''LightNovel/DaybreakOnHyperion'' and can grant this abilities to their bonded companions, the Oriflamme Paladins. The Oriflamme Armigers who accompany the paladins have their cloaks enchanted to look like this as well, but that's just a magical illusion while the paladins get the real thing.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinball]]
* The unnamed Fire God in Creator/{{Bally}}'s ''Pinball/{{Fireball}}''.
* Darth Vader is shown surrounded by flames on the backglass of Hankin's ''Pinball/TheEmpireStrikesBack''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:TabletopGames]]
* ''DungeonsAndDragons''
** The Crimson Coat of Iphazz allows a character to do this in.
** Fire Shield spells.
** In 1st Edition the Type VI demon could immolate (create flames around itself). In 2nd Edition demons were renamed "Tanar'ri", the Type VI demon was renamed the "Balor" and its flaming protection was always on. It was based on Tolkien's Balrog (and was actually named Balrog in early editions of the game).
* The Fire Aura spell in ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' does this.
* ''{{Exalted}}'' features the Fire-aspected Dragon-Blooded, who do this whenever their BattleAura reaches a certain level.
* ''{{Rifts}}'' has the Burster class. They are psychics who specialize in pyrokinesis. They get their name for their most impressive psychic power, which is to surround themselves in a flaming aura.
* ''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.
* ''TabletopGame/BlackCrusade'', also of the Warhammer 40K universe, introduces the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Flaming Skull]] mutation; they gain the "Fear" trait meaning they understandably terrify those around them, including their own comrades,, and lose Fellowship (the local charisma-equivalent statistic) in the process. Considering the characters are insane heretics and worshipers of the Chaos Gods, this is thought of as (and is listed as) a ''gift''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Toys]]
* ''{{Bionicle}}'': Annona is a flaming, tentacled, EldritchAbomination.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:VideoGames]]
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'': Some Fire-type Pokémon are covered in flames, like Moltres or Rapidash. Several Fire-types have this to a lesser degree, like Emboar (who has a ''beard'' of flame) and Normal Mode Darmanitan (who has flaming eyebrows.) The moves Flare Blitz and Flame Wheel involve tackling the opponent while in this state. The former does produce recoil, though.
* Ignus, from ''PlanescapeTorment''. Originally a ManOnFire, the fire did not really kill him. So he's now this.
* ''[[{{Halo3}} Halo 3]]'': In online multiplayer, you know what the quickest and easiest way to identify an employee of Bungie Studios is? They'll be wearing Hayabusa armor....that's on fire. This is a reference to a famous description of ''Halo 2'', given by Bungie while it was still under development, "Halo 2 is a lot like Halo 1, except it's Halo 1 on fire going 120 miles per hour through a hospital zone chased by helicopters and ninjas. And the ninjas are all on fire too."
** ''HaloReach'': Due to the decision to make the flaming helmet a pre-order bonus for the Legendary Edition, Bungie employees are now distinguished by having blue flames instead of red. There was a limited-time offer where people who either accessed Bungie's website and obtained the Bungie nameplate or used the [=iOS=] app could obtain the blue flames for themselves. The normal, red flames are called "Legendary" in the Armory, while the blue flames are called "Eternal".
* The ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' ability Immolation, in which the unit covers himself in flame to damage the enemy (but manifests as a circle of flame surrounding the unit). The item "Cloak of Flames" gives this ability passively.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'': Warlocks get such an ability. It is also employed by mooks in Utgarde Keep.
* ''{{Starcraft}}'': The Archons (Blue fire!) and Dark Archons (Orange fire!).
* ''MortalKombat Deception'' (PSP only) ''and Armageddon'' (All platforms) have Blaze. What is Blaze? About 20 feet of pure magma on fire.
* ''MasterOfMagic'' has Immolation unit ability -- units engaging an unit with it in a melee attack effectively subjected to a low-powered fireball.
* ''AgeOfWonders II'' has [[http://aow2.heavengames.com/aowsm/gameinfo/unitabilities/general.shtml#Ignition Ignition]] ability and Fire Halo enchantment. Anyone who isn't immune to fire is set aflame upon striking such an unit.
* Flynn's Enhahou Yokushou Mystic Arte from the PS3 version of ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'', seen [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-BsipWZrkU here]].
* Gulcasa of ''VideoGame/YggdraUnion'' and ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'', as part of his DangerousForbiddenTechnique.
* Kyo from ''KingOfFighters'' when pulling off a more powerful version of his orochinagi.
* ''{{Kirby}}'': Kirby turns ''into'' a fireball and rushes into his foes.
* ''Videogame/{{Clonk}}'': The ''Metal and Magic'' [[GameMod fan-mod]] includes the hot blood spell, which causes this trope. Walking into your enemies after casting it can lead to another [[ManOnFire fun trope]]. Fun for you, that is, not for them.
* Cinder from ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct''. And his rival is...[[AnIcePerson Gl]][[VoluntaryShapeshifting acius]].
* ''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.]]
* ''GuildWars'' has a spell that sets you on fire, and makes you faster. When it expires, you set everyone around you on fire.
* From VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}, Lilith's Phoenix skill manifests as a pair of wings made of fire, as well as a bit of this. It triggers when she gets a kill, [[ManOnFire igniting nearby enemies]] and giving her a chance to have free bullets for a few seconds.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'', putting points in Krieg's Hellborn tree gives him a chance to set himself on fire whenever he uses incendiary weapons (and with the Delusional Damage skill, any elemental weapons). The entire skill tree is focused around dealing fire damage and gaining buffs while being set on fire, with the end-tier skill making him emit homing fireballs from his body when attacked while going on extended psychotic rants.
* Lots of examples in ''KingdomOfLoathing'': the monsters Flaming Troll and Flaming Samurai, as well as the Flaming Gravy Fairy familiar, all have this, [[MeaningfulName as is pretty obvious from their names]]. For the player, there's the ability Salamander Kata, which doesn't hurt your enemies but constantly recharges your MP; a straighter version is the [[http://www.burningman.com/ "Burning, Man"]] effect, which surrounds you in enemy-toasting fire, but also [[ManOnFire burns you just as badly]] unless you have a special tattoo.
* 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.
* In ''[[VideoGame/PeasantsQuest Peasant's Quest]]'', one of the requirements to be a peasant (and thus face Trogdor) is to be on fire.
* Heat Man from ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'' wraps his entire body in flame before using his charge attack against Mega Man. Curiously, he can only use it after getting hit, and it protects him against all forms of attack (including [[BubbleGun Bubble Lead]], his main weakness).
* Flame Cloak spells in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''.
* ''HeroinesQuest'' has a spell that lets you do this. Considering the setting is a very harsh winter, this is very useful.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:WebComics]]
* In ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja'', Dan [=McNinja=] sets himself on fire to prevent lesser ninjas from catching him. His suit is explicitly fireproof, but we don't find this out until about fifty pages later, after he lit himself on fire again.
* ''Webcomic/AxeCop'': Axe Cop can light himself and his team on fire to become [[ExactlywhatItSaysOnTheTin Axe Cop Fire]] and the Axe Cop Fire Gang.
* Annie of ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' is not only capable of this herself, but can cover anything or any''one'' in fire, [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1256 which only burns what or who she wants it to burn.]]
* Damien from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''.
* ''Webcomic/WaywardSons'': Hestya, whose powers are nearly identical to [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Johnny Storm's]]. Except there's only one known substance that can survive the heat, and [[{{Fanservice}} her clothes aren't made of it]].
* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', the Torchmen, a swarm of flying [[KillerRobot clanks]] that serve as Mechanicsburg's main air defense system, are so named because they fly about [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080730 while on fire]].
* ''Webcomic/{{Kubera}}'s'' Fire God Agni. Well, when he's in god mode. Normally, he's perfectly happy pretending to be a LoonyFan of his summoner.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:WebOriginal]]
* [[ElijahWood Sigma]] from the 10th season of RedVsBlue looks like he's either on fire or made of fire.
* In a ''NewYorkMagician'' story arc, Michel first sees Melooch (a firefighter) with his 'rider' (ancient fire god who's sharing his body) this way.
* In the ''GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'', this was actually pretty common among characters who [[PlayingWithFire controlled fire]]. Starfire, Ablaze, Firefall, Inferna, Centigrade (who is also AnIcePerson), Incendie ("Blaze" in French), Mondfeur ("Moonfire" in German), Ulkataranara ("Comet Man" in Hindi), Playma ("Flame" in Russian), Salamander, Sunfire, Wildfire, Flame, Ifrit, Komet, Inferno, Fuoco Bianco ("White Fire" in Italian), Pumpkin Jack, Tourmaline, Pyro, and Red Devil all could wrap flames around themselves like a blanket.
* Phoenixfire of the WhateleyUniverse. Like you couldn't guess from her codename.
** Also her mom, making Phoenixfire's codename extra-appropriate.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:WesternAnimation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'': One character is an expy of The Human Torch's from ''ComicBook/FantasticFour''. But he feels terrible pain from the fire, lacking the RequiredSecondaryPowers.
* Chernobog in ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''.
* Father from ''CodenameKidsNextDoor''. [[CrazyAwesome He's basically a black silhouette of a stereotypical sitcom dad who sounds like Orson Welles and is usually covered in flames]]. A character called Sir Toasty had the same shtick.
* The denizens of the Fire Kingdom in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''.
* Phoenixes in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' when they are pissed, especially [[PapaWolf when protecting]] [[MamaBear their young]].
** Twilight Sparkle does this at one point due to sheer rage, though the flames fade away after her temper tantrum is over.
