->''[draws sword] "Hey hey hey hey hey hey! Listen up, ya gigantic bozos! Having left his homeland, he'' never ''yields,'' never ''retreats, and'' never ''regrets! He faces forward, and never looks back! He's'' manly! ''He's tenacious! Kamina of Team Gurren is here to take you on! Bring it!"''

They are burningly passionate about everything that they do. They give their all in absolutely everything they do, regardless of the task. They do not know how to be half-hearted or lackadaisical about anything they care about. These characters are Hot-Blooded.

Using the power of guts, determination, and badassery they [[TheBerserker throw themselves headfirst]] [[LeeroyJenkins into the worst situations imaginable]] and come out on top through ''[[{{Determinator}} sheer force of will]]'' and often have a strong tendency to do impressive things. Even non hot-blooded characters or the [[BewareTheNiceOnes nicest ones]] can occasionally have their own hot-blooded incidents; this is frequently their SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome.

Beware if they go into TranquilFury; someone's ''really'' managed to [[UnstoppableRage piss them off]]. Triple that for {{elemental|powers}} or PersonalityPowers; they're likely PlayingWithFire. Especially common in the SuperRobotGenre. The hot-blooded person is usually, though not always, identifiable by [[FieryRedhead a mane of scarlet hair]]. A common trait of TheAce and, to a lesser degree, the BoisterousBruiser.

Compare with the
* LargeHam, which is about extreme expression, with or without extreme emotion,
* GenkiGirl which is about being excitable,
* {{Keet}} which is mostly about being loud.

Not to be confused with MyBloodRunsHot, which is when a character has ''literal'' hot blood, though at least some of these characters may be metaphorically HotBlooded as well.

* As [[Creator/LeonardoDaVinci Leonardo]] paints it in ''Art/TheLastSupper'', Peter doesn't react to Jesus's news with shock or confusion, but with visible anger, reaching across the table to speak with Jesus.

* Tahu from ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'', with the PersonalityPowers [[PlayingWithFire to boot]].
