Blazing Inferno Hellfire Sauce / Video Games

  • PokÚmon: the Spelon Berry; description: "So spicy is the Spelon Berry that, Fire type or not, PokÚmon will try to breathe fire after eating a single one."
  • The Jalape˝o in Plants vs. Zombies can instantly burn all the zombies in a single lane. There's also the Pepper-pult, which deals fire splash damage and also warms up plants around it.
  • The curry item in Super Smash Bros. Brawl (which technically made its debut in Kirby's Dream Land) makes you spit fireballs that damage your enemies but not yourself. Your character does a dance of pain while it's active, however...
  • Street Fighter: The original explanation for Dhalsim's fire-breathing abilities was that he ate a lot of spicy curry. This was later changed to a gift from Agni.
  • The Dead Pepper, featured in Final Fantasy IX and Final Fantasy: Unlimited. When they were fed to chocobos, it drove them crazy and gave them supercharged abilities.
  • In Tales of Monkey Island, there is a chili pepper so hot, you can't touch it with your bare hands without getting burnt. You have to hold it to your tongue for eleven seconds.
  • World of Warcraft has (sadly outdated) Dragon Chili, made from mystery meat and a small flame sac taken from baby dragon bodies. Every so often after eating it, the character will breathe a damaging cone of fire on anything they're fighting.
  • The Jaba˝ero pepper in Kingdom of Loathing is evidently so spicy that "Just thinking about it makes your mouth hurt." Putting one in a spicy enchanted bean burrito, then eating one, gives one the (fairly useful) skill 'Chronic Indigestion'.
    "You know those bottles of novelty hot sauce they sell, with the black labels and skulls and names like "Ed's Hot Sauce That Will Totally Murder Your Family"? Compared to this stuff, they're ketchup."
  • In Quackshot and Deep Duck Trouble, Donald Duck can eat peppers to become explosively angry and invincible.
  • Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja includes a jalape˝o pepper as a food item. Eating it provides invincibility and a fire attack against enemies, as well as a humorous animation with Joe or Mac breathing fire.
  • The Roguelike Omega has a szechuan pepper as a findable item. If you eat it, "your sinuses melt and run out of your ears"— and you become immune to Sleep spells.
  • In Persona 4 Rise likes to put overwhelming amounts of spice in her food; one bite was enough to cause poor Yukiko to pass out.
  • In Fate/stay night and spinoffs thereof, Kotomine Kirei's favorite food is blazing hot mapo doufu. Which he offers to share with Shirou.
  • Some servers in Space Station 13 let you create ghostlier chilis, a chili pepper hot enough to make whoever's foolish enough to eat one burst into flames. If the botanist making one gets it just right, it can turn people to ash in a single bite.
