->''"Look into those flames, supplicant! Raise your head, look! Is that what you wish to hold, supplicant? Is the shaping of flames what stirs your heart? Know that flames can burn, and if you would learn their power, you must suffer their touch."''
--> -- '''Ignus's teacher''', ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment''

Fire is one of the basic [[ElementalPowers classical elements]] and usually the starter element from the FireIceLightning trinity that console role-playing games love so much. It's a very popular power to use, mainly because it comes from the [[StuffBlowingUp prettiest of explosions]]. This seems to work best when used on [[KillItWithFire the undead]], [[ArrowsOnFire arrows]], [[FlamingSword swords]], and, [[RuleOfCool against all common sense]], even [[WreathedInFlames people]]. It even works when [[{{Fireballs}} rolled up into a tangible ball]] and thrown!

People who are literally packing heat also tend to be fireproof and have a very high heat tolerance, as RequiredSecondaryPowers. But sometimes, they aren't and are, in fact, just as vulnerable to their own flames as everybody else. Similarly, such characters may be [[GlassCannon Glass Cannons]] physically or emotionally owing to their element's reputation for extreme destruction and fragility.

A person with fire power often possesses--get this--[[PersonalityPowers a fiery personality]]. You could say that they are HotBlooded, [[FourTemperamentEnsemble choleric]], or that the flame of passion burns within them. And who knows, maybe their [[HurricaneOfPuns burning]] [[UnstoppableRage anger]] [[PsychoactivePowers powers their burning hands]]; it's certainly possible for it to make them literally [[BurningWithAnger burn from anger]]. They also tend to be [[AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance redheads]] (or dye their hair). They may even give you due warning by being {{Fiery Redhead}}s. If they're also a PyroManiac, [[AxCrazy heaven help you]]. In jRPGs, this person is likely to be a BlackMagicianGirl.

Contrast with the natural foil, AnIcePerson, MakingASplash (with which it combines for boiling or steam), and ShockAndAwe (which can be perceived as this trope plus BlowYouAway). Compare KillItWithFire, and HavingABlast. May overlap with MagmaMan (which could be perceived as a combination of this trope and DishingOutDirt). If you're caught in a literal firefight with these people, you should probably KillItWithWater. Frequently shown [[SmugSuper (off)]] via FingerSnapLighter and BlastingTime. Expect them to sneer at anyone using a FauxFlame.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Takahisa Tajima from ''VisualNovel/ElevenEyes'' has the ability to conjure and control fireballs. [[spoiler:Which gets really bad when he goes into an UnstoppableRage.]]
%%* In ''Manga/AirGear'', there is Spitfire and Aeon Clock [[spoiler:and, eventually, Kazu, after Spitfire dies.]]
* Natsume Hyuuga from ''Manga/AliceAcademy'' is a Fire Alice, although it comes with a price: he [[PowerDegeneration loses a bit of his life every time he sets something alight]].
%%* Kannagi from ''Manga/ArataKangatari'', [[spoiler:until he loses his [[EmpathicWeapon hayagami]]]].
* Zelman Clock from ''Manga/BlackBloodBrothers'' has a power called Eye Ignite which lets him create and control fire.
* In ''Manga/BlackCat'', Kyoko, one of the members of the Apostles of the Stars, can raise her body temperature high enough to burn everything she touches, breathe fire, and create a force field made of fire.
** Her expies in ''Manga/ToLoveRu'' as well. She usually passes this off as magic tricks and special effects on her show during her acting role as "Magical Kyōko" TV series, or to defend herself from perverts.
* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** Shinigami head captain Shigekuni Yamamoto-Genryusai uses the sword Ryujin Jakka (Flowing Flame Blade) but defies the personality portion of this trope by having learned self-control (a thousand years ago, he was much more thuggish and hot-headed). His zanpakuto's release command is "Reduce all creation to ashes, Ryuujin Jakka!" and the initial release can create an inferno capable of engulfing an entire town. Anyone within range tends to react with justifiable fear. His Bankai becomes ThePowerOfTheSun. [[spoiler:All of the flames are concentrated into the blade, and create an invisible armour of flame around both the sword and Yamamoto's body. Anything the blade touches is incinerated and anything that touches Yamamoto's body is incinerated. All of the moisture in Seireitei evaporates, and if the Bankai remains active too long, the world will be destroyed. Its maximum heat is the same as the core of the Sun--1.5 million degrees.]]
** Hinamori is gifted with fire, including fire-based [[FunctionalMagic Kido]]. Her Zanpakutou is Tobiume ("Flying Plum Blossom", but can also refer to the snap and crackle of bonfire flames). Her Shikai is released with the command "Snap!" and produces fireballs that can create large explosions.
** Isshin's Zanpajutou, Engetsu ("Scathing Moon"), is released with the command "Burn!". It appears to create a wall of flame and allow its user to literally ''spit fire''.
** Bazz-B is known as "The Heat" among the Vandenreich. His fire abilities are so great that he can stop Yamamoto's flames from harming him and his comrades, as well as melt Hitsugaya's ice with [[FingerPokeOfDoom one finger]].
** Yuushirou's Shunkou is fire-based. Whenever he uses it, it causes huge explosions akin to a fire bomb.
** Shusuke Amagai from the [[{{Filler}} New Captain arc]] had fire-based powers.
** Yoshino Soma's [[BondCreatures doll]] Goethe from the [[{{Filler}} Bount arc]] was a fire elemental. Yoshino later merged with Goethe and obtained [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Human Torch]]-like powers.
%% ** The movie villains Yang (from the 2nd movie) and Shuren (from the 4th movie).
* The AntiAntiChrist of ''Manga/BlueExorcist'' has blue flames as his RedRightHand.
* In ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'', there is the Fiery Card, which takes the form of a young boy with burning wings. Also, Syaoran uses a PaperTalisman with fire-based powers now and then. (Usually to fight Clow Cards, but [[CrowningMomentOfFunny he set Touya's jacket on fire with it once]].)
* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'':
** Stiyl Magnus, [[StarterVillain the first magician]] Touma faces, uses liberally distributed magical runes to throw 3000°C fireballs and control an indefinitely regenerating fire demon. Sadly, after his HeelFaceTurn, he gets hit by TheWorfEffect quite badly.
** Fiamma of the Right is the most powerful human villain the series' protagonists have faced so far. His ability, "The Holy Right", manifests in the form of a flaming third arm behind him, allowing him to perform incredibly broken acts like conjuring a '''''forty kilometer long''''' [[FlamingSword Flaming]] {{BFS}} and flames which destroy objects without any destructive force.
* Ogami from ''Manga/CodeBreaker'' uses his flames to kill his enemies.
* 006 (Chang Changku) from ''Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}'' can breathe fire hot enough to melt almost any surface.
* One of contractors' power in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' is massive pyrokinesis. This would not be that bad...if it were so easily triggered instinctively or the contractor in question wasn't a little girl prone to emotional overreaction and rolling downhill into long, dreamwalking trances. Another contractor caused, at will, [[StuffBlowingUp fiery explosions]] of handprints he previously left on something. Which is [[ImpressivePyrotechnics spectacular]] when the boy bothers to mark with his skin fat ''everything in a room''.
%%* ''Very'' common in ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}''. It overlaps with RedIsHeroic, HeroesPreferSwords, FlamingSword and DinosaursAreDragons.
* In the anime ''LightNovel/DragonCrisis'', we have Rose, a cute [[TokenMiniMoe loli]] with a strange necklace--who is also able to throw fire.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** Natsu.
** Elemental Four member Totomaru, who can control flames as well create [[TechnicolorFire different-colored flames with different properties]].
** Macao, another Fairy Tail Wizard has Purple Flare, though it sticks to objects instead of burning them. His son Romeo, becomes a fire wizard after the [[spoiler: Time Skip]], and even took lessons from Totomaru.
** And now we have [[spoiler: Zancrow of the Seven Sins of Purgatory]]. The very first villain, Bora, also counts.
* Homura Hinooka's specialty in ''LightNovel/FireGirl'' is to conjure flames and control them.
* Recca Hanabishi and Kurei from ''Manga/FlameOfRecca'' specialize in this. They are also [[{{Expy}} expies]] of Kyo Kusanagi and Iori Yagami.
** Recca especially, as in-universe his flame is cursed and thus formless, meaning he can use his flames as pretty much anything he can think of.
* Roy Mustang from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', aka "Flame Alchemist". He uses alchemy to increase the concentration of oxygen in the air, then ignites it using gloves made of a material that sparks when he snaps his fingers.
* While all the Suzaku Senshi in ''Manga/FushigiYugi'' are the servants of the [[TheFourGods fire god,]] Tasuki is the only one with actual powers over fire and flames, probably because he's [[PersonalityPowers the most deserving]], given his HotBlooded nature.
%%* ''Anime/GaikingLegendOfDaikuMaryu'' is practically made of this trope.
* The title character of ''Manga/HanaTheFoxGirl'' breathes foxfire when she becomes embarrassed.
%%* [[OnlyOneName Inori]] from ''VideoGame/HarukanaruTokiNoNakaDe''.
* Amateur exorcist Izuna from ''Manga/HellTeacherNube''. Her pyrokinesis first manifested when she experienced [[spoiler:her first love]], but unfortunately for her, it was completely uncontrollable and tended to [[ClothingDamage burn her clothes]] [[{{Fanservice}} down to nothing]] ([[NakedPeopleAreFunny much to her distress]]), and Nube and friends were worried that [[RequiredSecondaryPowers her own fire could consume her]]. Eventually, she learned to control it with deadly accuracy.
** [[{{Youkai}} Sorcerer Fox]] [[TheRival Tamamo]] and the three Oni siblings, [[SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan Baki]], Zekki, and [[NobleDemon Minki]], also use fire as their main means of offense.
* Renkotsu of the Band of Seven in ''Manga/InuYasha'' is a firearms expert who seems to love blowing stuff up and even breathes fire with his explosives and other equipment.
* In [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureStardustCrusaders Part 3]] of ''Franchise/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', Muhammad Avdol's stand, Magician's Red, has the ability to conjure and control flames. Strangely enough, his flames also seem to be useful at binding people.
* HOMRA, the Red Clan in ''Anime/{{K}}'', has powers that manifest as fire. The Red Sanctum represents destruction, and this is something that all of the Red Kings shown in the story have to grapple with.
** The Red King Mikoto Suoh looks too calm to be considered a FieryRedhead, but he's powerful enough to be a PersonOfMassDestruction.
** His Clansman, Misaki Yata, is definitely the FieryRedhead type, and he uses his fire powers to propel his skateboard.
* Tomoe from ''Manga/KamisamaKiss'' is a centuries old {{Kitsune}} who has a tendency to summon fireballs so much he might qualify as pyromaniac. He also has a nasty little habit of combining this with BalefulPolymorph; namely transforming his victim into a game animal of some kind and than roasting them alive.
* ''LightNovel/{{Kampfer}}'': Natsuru uses fire powers as his Zauber ability.
* ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' has Azaka Kokuto, whose fire abilities are shown in the 6th chapter.
* Played with in ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''. Certain people have the ability to use Dying Will Flames, which can be one of seven types that correspond to a weather phenomenon and have a special property. Subverted in that some flames have a property that seems more like another element, namely, [[MakingASplash Rain Flames]] and [[ShockAndAwe Lightning Flames.]]
** In the manga, [[spoiler:seven more flames are added when the Simon Family enter the story. The new Earth Flames (as opposed to the Sky Flames) correspond to themes associated with the Earth such as Flames of the [[GreenThumb Forest]], [[AnIcePerson Glacier]], and [[DishingOutDirt Mountain]].]]
* In ''LightNovel/KazeNoStigma'', the whole Kannagi family (except Kazuma) use fire magic due to the fact that the first Kannagi made a contract with the spirit king of fire. Ayano even fits the personality aspects of a fire user to a T, being a {{Tsundere}}, HotBlooded, and FieryRedhead triple threat.
* ''LightNovel/LoveChunibyoAndOtherDelusions'': So Yuuta's [[OldShame delusions]] go. Black fire, to be exact.
* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'':
** Signum (a.k.a. the Blazing General). There's also Agito, the fire-based [[FusionDance Unison Device]]. [[spoiler:The two of them eventually become partners]].
** Rio Wesley has both, fire ''and'' [[ShockAndAwe lightning]] powers. It's really rare to have two than one Magic Conversion Affinity.
** Harry Tribeca has fire affinity.
** Alisa Bannings in the AlternateContinuity, ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaINNOCENT''.
* In ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic'', the prince, Alibaba Saluja, and Aladdin's constant companion has the spirit of fire possess his dagger and at first, he can only shoot flames from the sword itself, but later on he gains the ability to use Djinn Equip and turn his arms to black lava-like things and his sword gets bigger and he can shoot more flames, but by the next series, he can completely surround himself with flames and move around in them, flying as well, and also his hair gets longer and looks like flames as well. So yeah, he fits the trope pretty well.
* Hikaru Shidou from ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'', the MagicKnight of Flame (and a bit of [[ShockAndAwe Lightning]]).
* The Festival arc of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has Mei Sakura, who is also a fire magic specialist, and the significantly more competent [[spoiler: Chao Lingshen]], who, after releasing the seal on her magic, reveals herself to be scarily powerful at it. Later on, the main hero's childhood friend Anya displays this ability. From the arc following it is [[MeaningfulName Homura]], one of Fate's loyal minions and [[spoiler:[[YouAreNumberSix number four in the series he comes from]], Quartum, Averruncus of Fire]].
* Mai Tokiha from ''Anime/MaiHime'' has an Element that allows her to manipulate fire.
* Quite a few people in ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' wield fire thanks to their Quirks:
** Wielding fire is half of [[TheAce Shouto Todoroki's]] power, inherited from his father [[AbusiveParents Endeavor]]; the other half is [[AnIcePerson ice]], inherited from his mother. Shouto notably refused to use his fire powers at the start of the series, because his father is such an asshole that Shouto refused to honor his wish of wielding fire. However, a talk from Izuku convinced him to start using both sides of his power, not for his father but for himself.
** Other people with fire powers include villain [[NoNameGiven Dabi]], and [[TheHero Izuku's]] father, [[DisappearedDad Hisashi]].
* In ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'', all the Uchiha clan members have a natural affinity for fire, though many of them can use other elements as well. In fact, fire is the dominant chakra nature of the Hidden Leaf Village as a whole (as would be expected from a place located in the Land of Fire), and the Sarutobi are another of its clans who seem to have a natural affinity for it. Some ninjas from other villages can use fire as well.
** Uchiha with [[DeadlyUpgrade Mangekyo Sharingan]] eyes can also use Amaterasu, a special black fire which can burn ''anything'', even regular fire.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'':
* Pearl, [[CoDragons Co-Dragon]] to early villain Don Krieg, used friction from his gauntlets to ignite the armor he wore. He also flung small burning pearls.
** Portgas D. Ace, main protagonist Luffy's older brother, is quite literary the embodiment of fire, having eaten the Mera Mera no Mi (Flame-Flame Fruit). He can create fire, manipulate it however he wants, and turn his body into it at will, allowing both for rocket-like flight and letting attacks pass through him. Extra credits for shooting flame beams from {{finger gun}}s. [[spoiler:After Ace dies, the Mera Mera no Mi returns into circulation and, in the Dressrosa arc, is eaten by his and Luffy's other brother, Sabo]].
** Marco the Phoenix can transform into a blue phoenix and can use fire to heal his wounds.
** Sanji's Diable Jambe (Devil Leg), which covers his foot in heat, allowing him to set fire to or burn opponents.
** Luffy by combining vulcanization and gear second can also use burning attacks.
** Kinemon, who can cut with fire as well as cut fire blasts.
* Kotohara Ren from ''Manga/PopcornAvatar'', while not actually having an avatar of her own yet, is still the incarnation of Agni, the Deva of Fire, and will likely provide the fire-based abilities.
* Goh, the Leafe Knight of Fire, from ''Manga/{{Pretear}}''.
* ''Franchise/PrettyCure''
** Rin, aka Cure Rouge, from ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5''. Even her hair is shaped like a flame when transformed!
** Cure Sunny from ''Anime/SmilePrettyCure'' also has fire as her personal element.
** Cure Scarlett from ''Anime/GoPrincessPrettyCure'' has fire-based powers as well, which is unsurprising considering her powers are based off of ThePhoenix.
%%* Kaito of ''Manga/PsychoBusters''.
%%* [[ActionGirl Frederica]] from ''Manga/{{Psyren}}''.
* Phoenix King Saffron from ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. He doesn't just project fire, it ''[[GoodThingYouCanHeal heals]]'' [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin him]].
* Shizuma Kusanagi from ''Manga/RealBoutHighSchool'' is a HotBlooded brawler with fiery moves… that are usually performed with alcohol and a disposable lighter. The important thing is it still works like Kyo's moves do, and they still involve a great deal of physical exertion.
%%* Ryo of the Wildfire from ''Anime/RoninWarriors''.
%%* [[KnightTemplar Kuyou]] from ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' has this power.
* Rei Hino (Sailor Mars) from ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' has appropriately fire-based powers, and also reads flames in her work as a {{miko}}.
** Likewise are her villainous counterparts Koan of the Ayakashi Sisters with her Dark Fire attack, and Eudial of the Witches 5 with her Fire Buster move. Hawk's Eye of the Amazon Trio sported the ability to breath fire with help from a torch.
* In ''AudioPlay/SaintBeast'', Goh is gifted with fire-based ElementalPowers.
* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'':
%%** Phoenix Ikki .
** The Silver Saints, Centaurus Babel. He attacks con his flames.
** A FillerVillain, the Saint Of Fire. He can throw jets of flame that surround the victim.
%%* Hotaru from ''Manga/SamuraiDeeperKyo.''
* Homura in ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}'', against personality type, is one of the more stoic characters. The HotBlooded {{Tsundere}} is the water Sekirei, Tsukiumi, who exhibits the remainder of this trope.
* Shana from ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana''. The translation of her series' title is "the girl with fire in her eyes". That's not [[{{Tsundere}} the only thing about her that's fiery]], either.
* Gurren from ''LightNovel/ShonenOnmyouji'' uses the fires from hell in his attacks. He's considered the strongest out of the 12 shikigami in terms of attack power.
* While her strengths are more in BlackMagic, Lina Inverse of ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}'' mostly uses fire Shamanistic Magic to fight--appropriate, given her [[FieryRedHead nature]]. Also, the most basic and best-known mage spells are either WhiteMagic or fire Shamanism.
* Jacqueline O. Lantern Dupré from ''Manga/SoulEater'' has the Weapon form of a lantern that doubles as a flamethrower. She can also generate fire without fully transforming. In fact, the trio of Ox, Kim, and Kirikou are fire and lightening based: Harvar is an [[ShockAndAwe electricity-generating lance]], and Pot of Thunder and Pot of Fire's powers are what their names suggest.
* Two characters in ''Anime/TigerAndBunny'' can create/control fire: Flamboyant superhero Nathan Seymour/Fire Emblem and criminal-killing vigilante [[spoiler: Yuri Petrov]]/Lunatic. Both avert the standard Personality Powers for fire as Nathan is cheerfully camp and Lunatic is unnervingly calm both in and out of costume.
* In the manga version of ''Manga/{{Tokko}}'', Sakura's SwordBeam attack seems to be fire-based. Also, Ito is shown to be able to make a giant flaming hand shoot up out of the ground.
* Starjun from ''Manga/{{Toriko}}'' can create and control fire hot enough to melt iron. On top of that, he also has a flaming kithcen knife, which, due to his length, doubles as a [[FlamingSword sword]]. In the anime adaptation, his flames [[TechnicolourFire were made blue]].
* Fatina from ''Anime/TheTowerOfDruaga'' is a fire mage who channels her magic through a magic gun/flamethrower.
* In ''Anime/UmiMonogatari'', Kanon's power is to control fire.
* Dilandau's GiantMecha in ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'' is equipped with giant flamethrowers... which [[AxCrazy Dilandau]] ''loves'' to use.
%%* Robin Sena from ''Anime/WitchHunterRobin''.
* [[MeaningfulName Burner]] the Fire Demon from ''Manga/{{Yaiba}}''.
* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has Joey Wheeler/Katsuya Jonouchi; his favorite monster is the Flame Swordsman.
** ''Anime/YuGiOhGX'' has Axel Brodie/Austin O'Brien; his Deck utilizes the Volcanic archetype.
** ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' has Hunter Pace/Mukuro Enjo; his Deck utilizes the Burning Skull archetype.
* Hiei from ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' is a fire youkai. He first demonstrates this ability by incinerating ''another fire youkai (Zeru)'', who had been hyped up as being pretty powerful. Rando can also throw fireballs [[spoiler:because he stole the technique]]. Though he claimed to use "demonic fire", Zeru was only limited to flames in the human world; Hiei, on the other hand, because of his transplanted [[MagicalEye Jagan Eye]] could also control "Darkness Flame": the living black flame of the demon world Makai.
* ''Manga/ZatchBell'':
** Zofis to start with, though his powers are officially based on explosions.
** Much later, we have Fango, who plays the trope straight.
** There's also Fire Elbow, pyrokinetic human that's part of an American superhero team called the Majestic Twelve. But they're all background characters, minor at best.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/XMen'':
** Pyro's mutant power allows him to control fire, but, notably, not create it; in the comics and the third movie, he uses a specially designed harness to produce flame, but in the first and second movies, he used an ordinary lighter.
** Shiro [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Yoshida/Yashida]], the [[ThirtySecondsOverTokyo Japanese]] CaptainEthnic guest-star Sunfire, complete with a rising-sun emblem and scary pseudo-samurai mask that looks like it's made of fire half the time.
** ComicBook/JeanGrey and her daughter Comicbook/RachelSummers with the power of ThePhoenix Force. Her Phoenix powers give her cosmic pyrokinesis, essentially magic fire.
** The UltimateUniverse Pyro is not immune to fire and is horribly scarred all over his body.
* Johnny Storm (the second, but more famous Human Torch) from the ''ComicBook/FantasticFour''. The ''original'' hothead. He can generate shapes composed of fire from any point on his body (He usually employs his hands to "sculpt" the flames, occasionally as a lasso to ensnare enemies). He can form fire into long streams, spheres, or even more complex shapes like letters in skywriting. These flames-objects will only remain their shapes as long as he concentrates upon them. The objects will only burn about 3 minutes before expiring unless the Torch continues to infuse them with energy
** Frankie Raye had powers similar to the Torch's, and her powers were augmented to cosmic levels when she became Nova, a Herald of ComicBook/{{Galactus}}.
** Another one of Galactus' Heralds, the aptly named Firelord, has similar powers (his original name was also Pyreus Kril, tying into the theme)
** The Golden Age Torch was an android who ''accidentally'' burst into flame on contact with air. He later gained control over his powers, became a superhero, and picked up a sidekick, Toro, who was ''also'' on fire, but a human boy mutated by radiation rather than an android.
** Tara, a DistaffCounterpart to the Golden Age Human Torch, is also an android who bursts into flames. Unlike The Golden Age Torch, she never gained full control over her powers, so she was given a special suit so she could "flame off".
** The Golden Age Human Torch was sometimes impersonated by Captain Kerosene, who had similar powers.
** Super-Skrull has this power as well. Since he has all of the F4's powers.
* Liz Sherman from ''Comicbook/{{Hellboy}}''. As it turns out in the comicbooks, she actually has some kind of free-willed elemental fire-spirit living inside her, hence her occasional PowerIncontinence.
* Magma from ''ComicBook/NewMutants'' controls fire in addition to lava, so she's kind of a Fire/Earth elemental.
** And various versions of Sunfire, as well.
** Matchstick, a mutant at the Xavier school. Part of his mutation is that his head is permanently on fire.
** School rioter Glob Herman's body was made of a gelatinous substance that could also be set on fire (until he was extinguished). The "setting on fire" part was taken care of by fellow rebel student Redneck, who had actual fire powers.
** Fever Pitch, another mutant fire guy. His powers eventually destroyed his body, but his flaming skeleton continues to walk among us, fully alive.
* ''ComicBook/DoomPatrol'':
** Fever had the power to increase the temperature around her and she was invulnerable to the heat, so invariably, she would light herself mostly on fire. She's a spacey {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, though. Well, until being imprisoned on Apokolips made her DarkerAndEdgier, that is.
** One of Crazy Jane's [[SplitPersonality multiple superpowered personalities]] is the gigantic "Sun Daddy" who shoots fireballs out of her flaming head. There was also Flaming Katy, who had more conventional fire powers.
* Effigy, a Franchise/GreenLantern villain, had powers that worked kind of like a GreenLanternRing, but with fire instead. He was originally intended as a Sinestro-style EvilCounterpart to the then-new (and very pyrophobic) Lantern, Kyle Rayner.
** This is the gimmick of several DC villains, most notably Heat Wave, who is an extreme pyromaniac who burned down his home as a boy and designed a pocket flamethrower and fireproof suit so he could handle fire better.
** Similarly, Franchise/{{Batman}} villains and pyromaniac arsonists Firefly and Firebug, who actually have nothing to do with each other.
** And the Human Flame, a small-time crook brought down by the Martian Manhunter decades ago. When he got out of the joint, friends in high places let him get revenge by roasting MM alive. The Human Flame's suit shoots fire from nozzles located on its chest, leading to jokes about him having "fire nipples".
** And minor villain Vulcan, as part of his group's Greek mythology theme.
* Fire Lad, of the Legion of Substitute Heroes, could breathe fire. He was rejected by the ComicBook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}} because he couldn't control his powers very well; a recent version of him had his powers officially listed as "breathes fire with at best moderate control." Sun Boy had more direct, Human Torch-style fire abilities (and a way with the ladies not unlike Johnny's). Wildfire, a little, as well.
* DC heroine Beatriz [=DaCosta=], also known as Fire. Unlike most other fire wielders, her flames burn green, and, even de-powered, her hair is permanently bright green.
%%* Blazer from ''Comicbook/JusticeMachine''.
* A number of minor Creator/MarvelComics supervillains possess this power. Firebrand was a radical political anarchist who created his own suit of flame-blasting armor to battle Iron Man, the second one stole the battlesuit of the first and went on to battle Comicbook/SpiderMan and a few B-list heroes, and the third was mutated by a horrible lab accident and essentially became a PsychoElectro, except with fire. Another notable example is the supervillain Solarr, who possesses the ability to absorb solar radiation and convert it to blasts of fire that he can control. Using this ability to become a supervillain, he would later go on to battle Comicbook/CaptainAmerica, Comicbook/SpiderMan, Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}, and ComicBook/AlphaFlight.
* In ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'', Chris Kent's girlfriend and ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'''s childhood friend, Thara Ak-Var, has pyrokinesis in addition to standard Kryptonian powers. She can harness fire even if being stunned by kryptonite, red sunlight, or some other Kryptonian weakness.
* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'':
** In story arc ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' Sheko gains pyrokinesis as well as telepathy once she becomes a [[Franchise/GreenLantern Red Lantern]]. She probes minds to judge people. If she finds them innocent, she let them go; If she finds them guilty, she burns them down.
** In ''ComicBook/SupergirlRebirth'', Kryptonian werewolf Lar-On has -and uses- fire EyeBeams.
** In ''ComicBook/DemonSpawn'', villain Nightflame can channel tongues of flames through of her blade. She is more than capable of bringing down a building with her pyrokinesis.
** In ''[[ComicBook/Supergirl1982 Supergirl Vol. 2]]'', Supergirl happens upon a pyrokinetic mutant who can control and shoot fire.
** In ''ComicBook/{{Bizarrogirl}}'', the titular Bizarro character breathes fire.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Empowered}}'', Willy Pete's body burns hotter than the sun, and he can fill a building with flames before anyone even knows he's there. Don't ask how he takes advantage of his powers.
* Flame, from ''Wonderworld Comics'', can control fire and even burst into flames.
* Vulcan, from ''Super-Mystery Comics'', can control fire and is effectively bulletproof since the bullets melt before hitting him.
* Fireman, from ''Liberty Scouts'', can control fire and even turn into glass.
* The ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan version of the Green Goblin drops his usual aresnal for immense fire abilities including melting bullets and being a WalkingWasteland.
* Fireball, from ''Pep Comics'', can control fire and uses his abilities to fight arsonists.
%%* Red Blazer, from ''Pocket Comics'', also had fire powers.
* [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] has created fire blasts and expanding fire waves with Mjolnir. The hammer can also be used to absorb fire-based attacks, while Thor himself has withstood Comicbook/GhostRider's hellfire, Heimdall's cosmic fire, and the Super Skrull's nova blast for extended periods. There's also Surtur, Lord of the Fire Demons of Muspelheim, can produce massive amounts of fire akin to stars.
* Taranee Cook from ''ComicBook/{{WITCH}}'', who averts the firey personality aspect by being shy, bookish, and the [[TheSmartGuy brainy one]]. She still has a temper: as Cedric put it when Elyon asked him to stop a furious Taranee, "I can't! The Power of Fire is the most untamed of all! Run away! RUN AWAY!". It gets better: Cedric cried that when Taranee got furious and started melting the supposedly fireproof bubble she was imprisoned into, and he rebuked Elyon because he told her not to provoke Taranee.
* The title team in ''ComicBook/{{Wildguard}}'' features two heroes with this power: Ignacia and Freezerburn. This clashes with SuperheroSpeciation standards, especially since Freezerburn also having AnIcePerson powers causes many people to write Ignacia off as redundant.
* Surprisingly averted by Nedor's Pyroman--he actually has electrical powers.
* Johnny Do, a character from ''ComicBook/TheNewUniverse'' title ''Psi-Force'', combines this power with severe HollywoodAutism. The results [[ManOnFire are not pretty]].
* ''ComicBook/{{Femforce}}'' has Firebeam, the ghost of a woman killed in a house fire, whose spirit can now control fire.
* Marvel ''and'' DC ''each'' have a pretty fire-wielder named Volcana.
* A major plot point in ''ComicBook/TheWickedAndTheDivine'''s first arc is which gods have fire within their domains, since whoever does also had the ability to kill the judge and frame Lucifer for murder. Lucie herself, obviously, is one, and she often flicks her thumb on fire to light her cigarette. Baphomet also lights a subway on fire in his first appearance. Beyond that, Cassandra figures that any god with domain over the sky, since that includes the sun and therefore fire. Ananke later clarifies that ''all'' the gods (except Woden, who makes machines that achieve the same affect) can perform miracles, which means ''any'' of them could have killed the judge. [[spoiler:As it turns out, it was Ananke, to punish Lucifer for boundary-pushing, and to give her an excuse to execute her]].
* Burn from ''ComicBook/StrikeforceMorituri'' had standard pyrotechnic powers.
* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'':
** The villain Judge Fire is a mass-murdering [[FlamingSkulls skeleton wreathed in flames]] with fire-based powers, which he shoots out of a trident. This makes his physical shell ridiculously hard to destroy even compared to the other Dark Judges, with water logically proving most effective to counter him. Has a hotheated personality and is a psychopathic {{pyromaniac}}.
** There are some psychics in Mega-City One who are able to project fire, but they're kept under permanent observation by Psi-Division because they tend to suffer from PowerIncontinence.
* The ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' villain Flamethrower is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. There's also an alien species called the Thermians who are WreathedInFlames and wear backpacks that let them manipulate fire.
* Johnny Storm from ''ComicBook/UltimateFantasticFour''. He's the Human Torch. Bursting into flames and throwing fire around is part of the package.
* Dante "Inferno" Pertuz is yet another fire-slinger in the Marvel Universe, introduced in the 2014 Inhumans series. Nobody besides his creator Charles Soule gives him much respect and his powers (and characterization) have grown increasingly generic in other authors' hands. In 2017's Secret Warriors, Kamala Khan calls him "the Inhuman Torch," and he admits that he gets teased this way '''constantly.''' It doesn't help that he was recently cooped up in New Attilan while both Johnny Storm and Thomas "Toro" Raymond (the Golden Age Torch's sidekick who's a recently-retconned Inhuman) were in residence.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has most magical people capable of doing this, but few are particularly good at it - the jack of all trades thing being in play. Loki is very skilled, Harry Dresden is a prodigy and Harry Thorson is likewise, if not more so, which only makes sense [[spoiler: since his protection came from the Phoenix Force, which his mother merged with.]] However, all three have varying levels of skill in manipulating other elemental magics, even if it takes the latter a while to get into it.
* In Fanfic/KeepersOfTheElements, Izzy gains this as her Element.
* Gerland in FanFic/TheTaintedGrimoire is a master of fire-based spells.
%%* [[spoiler: [[WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom Sam]]]] as part of the ''FanFic/FacingTheFutureSeries''.
* [[SupportingProtagonist Nathaniel Augustine']] psychic powers manifest this way in ''Fanfic/TheLegacyOfTheBloodRavens''.
* The wizard Emeth from ''Fanfic/WarriorsOfTheWorld'' specialises in fire spells.
* Aurora Borealis has this as her special talent in ''Fanfic/{{Whispers}}''.
* Celestia gets some aspects of this ability in the [[FanFic/TriptychContinuum Triptych Continuum]], which seems to be a unique side effect stemming from her link to Sun. However, she hasn't been shown to generate direct flame. Instead, she seems to create pure ''heat'', apparently from nowhere. (This is in contrast to pegasi who know the heat-shifting ''technique'': hot spots can be created--by lowering the temperature somewhere else.) She can channel this on a very small and subtle scale: in particular, she can literally burn out infections. However, when she gets upset, the temperature in her vicinity tends to spike… [[spoiler: [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/131321/a-mark-of-appeal A Mark Of Appeal]] shows her having a nightmare in which the ability goes out of control, sending Equestria into literal meltdown.]]
* Haeten from ''Fanfic/HardBeingPure'' is a pyrokinetic. Astrex also uses a weak flame spell to good effect.
* In ''Fanfic/TheBigFourCjupsherSeries'', various people are shown possessing pyrokinetic abilities
** Anna Callagh/Firestar
** Frollo
* In ''Fanfic/TheWitchOfTheEverfree'', while Sunset has a wide variety of spells at her disposal, she has a particular affinity for fire magic, and has a set of enchantments on her to make herself fireproof.
* In ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'', Asuka possesses fire powers.
-->She sat upright, face contorted into an angry scowl, her fists suddenly ablaze with flame.
* In ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'', a blink-and-you-will-miss-it moment hints that Asuka has pyrokinesis. During a scene where she's pissed, a small leaf spontaneously combusted near from her, and Shinji attributed it to Asuka.
* ''Fanfic/TheNewAdventuresOfInvaderZim'':
** [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Norlock's]] favorite magical attack is to launch blasts of black fire.
** In Episode 11, Viera gains an amulet called the Eye of Fire, which shoots fire on command.
* At the end of ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9901020/1/A-Warm-Blizzard A Warm Blizzard]]'', a ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' fanfic, Prince Hans is revealed to be a pyrokinetic as a counterbalance [[AnIcePerson to Elsa's frost]]. A binding was put in place so [[spoiler:he won't be able to use his magic, but a magical scissor unlocks his powers.]]
** In fact, many fan works depict Hans having hidden fire powers, but suppressed them because of the constant belittling he received from his brothers for this.
* Azazel and Uriel can use this element in ''Story/AesirCrossWars''.
* ''Fanfic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'': One of [[spoiler: the Nightmare's powers; it is shown throwing a fireball during the final battle. Xvital also gains this when she gains magic; in the days after, it's noted that she has trouble with accidentally creating fire in her sleep.]]

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* La Muerte from ''WesternAnimation/TheBookOfLife'', gives little sparks that are red like fire. And she literally, ''blew her top'' [[spoiler:when she found out that Xibalba cheated again]]. At the end, [[spoiler:when she and Xibalba have a BigDamnKiss, the candles on her hat become fireworks]].
* Sunset Shimmer of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' is hot-headed (although not quite hot-blooded), very good-looking, very short on patience, and distinctly associated with fire. Her demonic, phoenix, and [[spoiler:angelic]] forms all have fire motifs, and her demonic form (or demonic persona; Sunset wasn't exactly in control) throws fireballs. And in her normal human form, her long, complex red-and-gold hair looks almost fire-like, especially when billowing up above her.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
%%* Warren Peace in ''Film/SkyHigh2005''
* Chi is the least stoic and solemn of the Film/WarriorsOfVirtue. Though he also represents Wisdom, he's still eager and impulsive: "Patience is ''not'' my virtue."
* Wilder and Wallace in ''Wilder Napalm'' are two brothers with pyrokinetic abilities. Things start heating up between them when they start querreling over a woman.
* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'':
** Pyro can't generate fire, but is immune to it and can direct and grow any nearby fire. As such, he uses a lighter to create it when he needs to in the [[Film/XMen1 first]] [[Film/X2XMenUnited two]] movies, and he gets a wrist mounted flamethrower in the [[Film/XMenTheLastStand third]].
** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': Sunspot's mutant ability consists of converting the sun's energy into bursts of flame that he can aim at his enemies.
** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': The Ancient Egyptian Famine's mutant power is pyrokinesis. It's very much like Pyro's in that she only seems capable of manipulating already existent fire instead of being able to create it.
* Liz Sherman in the first and [[Film/HellboyIITheGoldenArmy second]] ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' movies has pyrokinesis, but is unhappy with it and [[PowerIncontinence has difficulty controlling it]] (she burned down an entire city block and killed her family as an ''eight-year-old''). Ultimately, she is able to embrace it and, in the second film, has greater control and is in a relationship with the luckily fireproof Hellboy. Oddly, Hellboy has the fiery, impulsive, and chaotic personality, while Liz is comparatively stable and reserved.
* In the film ''Film/TheLastAirbender'', Firebending is handled differently than in [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender the show]]; no firebender can create their element, [[ElementalBaggage so they all have to carry around tiny lanterns]]. Only the most powerful can generate flames from nothing.
* In the film ''Film/{{Firestarter}}'', little Charlie [=McGee=] slowly comes into her powers until her pyrokinesis lets her take down an entire hardsite full of armed agents.
* ''Film/{{Legend 1985}}''
** The alicorn (unicorn horn) allows its holder to start fires and throw fire.
** In the climactic fight with Jack, Darkness repeatedly fires fire out of his hands and weapons he's holding and causes fire to blaze up at a distance.
* Due to a failed anti-radiation vaccine, the main character of ''Film/SpontaneousCombustion'' is born with an ability to set people on fire when he's pissed off enough.
* In ''Film/YamatoTakeru'', the ability to conjure fire is the signature power of the [[ReligionIsMagic priestesses]] of [[ThePowerOfTheSun Amaterasu]]. Oto Tachibana in particular has fireball-throwing as her signature spell and combines it with martial prowess to be a KungFuWizard.

* Implied and discussed the second chapter of ''{{Literature/Abominable}}'', when we're introduced to [[FieryRedhead Finn]], who Stephanie tells us is a phoenix.
-->“How, exactly,” I said, very slowly, “is it practical to try intimidating a phoenix at a gas station?”
* In ''Literature/TheQuestOfTheUnaligned'', aeshes (fire-aligned mages) are an example of this trope. As an example, Laeshana, one of the book's main characters, has a fiery personality that accompanies her literal fire powers that results in her arguing with powerful governmental figures and "flaming" herself unconscious.
%%* The little girl at the beginning of the first book in the ''Literature/{{Gone}}'' series.
* [=DeMarians=] in ''Literature/TalesOfTheBranionRealm''. They are literal fiery redheads, and are worshiped as avatars of a god of Flame.
* ''Literature/DoraWilkSeries'' has magical furies and infernal pyres, both of which can control fire, although it takes time to learn how to do this without burning everything and everybody in sight at the slightest strong emotion, leading to both furies and pyres being outcasts in their respective societies. Out of characters in story, Laoise and Katarzyna are half-furies, while [[spoiler:Miron]] becomes a pyr due to freak magic accident.
%%* Alison Cole from Literature/{{Hottie}}
* ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' has a book dedicated to meeting a new friend--''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin A]] [[StealthPun Warm]] [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Welcome]]'', which is part of the ''Literature/AnnaAndElsa'' series of books--which is about a queen whose uncontrollable heat powers causes her kingdom to be stuck in an eternal winter, which Elsa had done before, inverted.
* ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'':
** Gandalf, servant of the Secret Fire and wielder of the Flame of Anor (which may or may not have to do with [[spoiler:bearing Narya, the Elven Ring "red as fire"]]). However, he needs wood to sustain a fire, as he cannot burn snow.
** In the battle that cost him the Ring, Sauron's body was described as blackened from the immense heat he gave off and even set people who got too close to him on fire.
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'':
** Harry Dresden prefers fire evocations, with a minor in wind and force, except for a period where, after being horribly burned with a flamethrower, he actually became ''pyrophobic.'' There was also the time period where he had [[SpiritAdvisor a fallen angel living in his head]] that granted him access to HellFire. The Hellfire has since been replaced with Soulfire, which is sort of Hellfire's opposite number. Instead of being like a really bad bank loan, with immediate payoffs but nasty costs later, it's more like an investment; the costs are immediate (using it dips into his actual specific soul, draining life force which may or may not grow back), but the gains are much greater and more constructive than the brute force of Hellfire.
** [[TheFairFolk Sidhe of the Summer Court]] also tend to use fire-based magic, though theirs is usually described as more gentle than destructive, in opposition to the [[AnIcePerson cold-based magic]] of the Winter Court.
** It should noted that for human base magic, Harry uses "Fuego" as his magic word to summon fire because of the mental connection he makes between it and the power. If he used English words, such as "fire" every time he thought or said "fire" cue summon. So one time when Harry was truly and righteously pissed at his enemy, he cried out "[[UnstoppableRage Fuego. Pyrofuego! *Burn!*]]" Sometimes, though, he needs only a small flame. For lighting candles, it's "Flickum Bicus."
* Charlie [=McGee=] from the Creator/StephenKing novel ''Literature/{{Firestarter}}'' is a pyrokinetic. She can set pretty much anything on fire, even fireproof materials, and doesn't appear to have limits; her problem is ''[[PowerIncontinence stopping]]''.
** Also, from the same author, ''Carrie'' had various powers, including psychokinesis and pyrokinesis.
** According to Wiki/TheOtherWiki, this is the book that coined the term 'pyrokinesis'.
%%* The Flame in ''Literature/TalesOfAnMazingGirl''.
* Among the most commonly used spells in the ''Literature/SwordOfTruth'' series is Wizard's Fire, which acts a lot like napalm. Used to greatest effect in the sixth book, where [[TheMentor Zedd]] and another wizard decide to show an enemy army "an old fashioned fire fight"; They hurl fireballs the size of houses at the enemy army, killing thousands in moments.
* Lavan Firestorm from ''[[Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar Brightly Burning]]''. He even has to get mad before his powers will manifest at first; fiery temper, indeed...
** Elsewhere in the ''Valdamar'' stories, it's mentioned that self-taught magic users typically figure out how to call fire as their first spell. An evil wizard uses this tendency to set a trap at one point...
* Some of the more powerful vampires in ''Literature/TheVampireChronicles'' have the Fire Gift, which basically amounts to pyrokinesis. In ''Literature/QueenOfTheDamned'', Akasha uses this to [[spoiler: eliminate most of the world's other vampires]] and also [[spoiler: pass the Fire Gift on to Lestat by allowing him to drink her blood.]]
* In ''Literature/CodexAlera'', firecrafters could generate enormous bursts of flame and heat or otherwise control fires. They also have the ability to evoke powerful emotions in others, such as anger or terror; the best orators in Alera are firecrafters for this exact reason.
* In the first ''Literature/TheKingdomKeepers'' book, tossing fireballs is [[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent's]] perferred methold of attack. It's especially strange since [[EvilIsDeathlyCold she's described as freezing the ground where she walks]].
* In ''Literature/MysticAndRider'' and its sequels, Senneth has enormous power to light and put out fire and is constantly warm. She [[spoiler:loses her power in the fourth book]] but [[spoiler:regains enough of it to light a small flame or, by the fifth book, put out all the lights in a room.]]
* In ''Literature/{{The Guardians|MeljeanBrook}}'', Each Guardian has a unique [[PersonalityPowers Gift]] related to their life. Alejandro's Gift is creating, manipulating, and shielding from fire, which works well in tandem with his ex-lover's Gift of [[ExtraOreDinary metal]].
* In Creator/RobertEHoward's ''Literature/TheHourOfTheDragon'', Zeiata uses fire to show Literature/ConanTheBarbarian what happened in his realm in his absence.
* In the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series, it's strongly suggested that Albus Dumbledore's weapon of choice is fire. Amongst other things, he uses fire to intimidate the young [[spoiler: Tom Riddle]] and to fight off the [[spoiler: Inferi guarding the fake locket]] in ''The Half-Blood Prince''.
* Many Adepts in the Savage Empire book have pyrokinetic talents.
* Leo from ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'' is one of the few sons of Hephaestus to have the ability to create and control fire.
* In ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'', all goblins can generate fireballs at will. While their skin and internal surfaces open to the air (such as the inside of the nose and moth) are entirely fireproof, they can still be damaged when the fireballs detonate (as demonstrated in the first book when a goblin sucks a fireball up his nose in order to blow it right back out but is thwarted when his nostrils are blocked and the fireball explodes inside his oral-nasal cavity).
* The first [[OurZombiesAreDifferent screamer]] we see in the web-novel ''Literature/{{Domina}}'' has this power. She doesn't use it much, though--probably because she's a near-mindless zombie.
* Pyromancy is one of the "legal" magical schools in ''Literature/ShadowOps''. It is also one of the most powerful and destructive schools, though it lacks any of the other elemental schools' versatility. All a pyromancer can do is create flame in various amounts and generate mindless fire elementals, though their ability to do so makes them one of the more valued schools if only through sheer, literal firepower.
* Fire is the second Elemental Magic that each of the twins learns in ''Literature/TheSecretsOfTheImmortalNicholasFlamel''. Sophie learns it in the second book from the Comte St Germain and Josh learns it in the fourth book from Prometheus (yes [[Myth/GreekMythology that one]]). It's also revealed that Prometheus's fiery Aura [[spoiler: brought the very first humans to life]].
* ''Literature/TrappedOnDraconica'': Daniar can breathe fire because she's a dragokin, i.e. a human blessed with dragon powers.
** ''Literature/LegacyOfTheDragokin'': [[LamarckWasRight Her son can do it too and for the same reason.]]
* Fire Masters/Mages in the ''Literature/ElementalMasters'' series by Creator/MercedesLackey. Most of them end up married to [[BlowYouAway Air Masters]], as those two elements are strong allies and very compatible, since Air feeds Fire.
* In ''Literature/DestinedToLead'' all feas can technically unlock this power and use it, but Kajiya seems particularly found of it as a self-defense technique. Well, when battling [[GiantSpiders spiedes]] at least.
* The [[MagicFromTechnology Sharra Matrix]] in the ''Literature/{{Darkover}}'' series. A powerful [[AmplifierArtifact psychic amplifier]] designed to invoke the Form of Fire, which at least one character claims is a sentient other-dimensional entity, either a PhysicalGod or EldritchAbomination depending on how you look at it. In any case, using the matrix makes the users AxCrazy. In ''The Heritage of Hastur'' some rogue psychics use it to destroy a spaceport.
* ''Literature/TheOneWhoStartedFires'', has the title character, [[spoiler:a young girl,]] who can make and control fire. She is not immune to it.
* "Literature/ClockpunkAndTheVitalizer" has Dr. Awesome, though we don't get to see him in action.
* ''[[Literature/AMagesPower A Mage's Power]]'': The first spell Eric learns is [[FireBalls Fire Ball]]. It's supposed to be a simple one for beginning mages. During the RescueArc, he upgrades to the more impressive ""Flame Wave".
* ''Literature/FancyApartments'' has Tisa the jinn and her elemental control of fire. Tisa also, when in jinn form, has flaming [[FireballEyeballs eyes]] and [[FlamingHair hair]].
* Hector Hell in ''Literature/DevilsCape'' is this, having been the fire-eater before his [[CircusOfFear carnival troupe]] developed their powers.
* Braze from ''Literature/RainbowDashAndTheDaringDoDoubleDare'', has pyromantic abilities, and is able to create ropes made of fire. He can also apparently control how hot they are, since he can tie up ponies with said ropes without burning them to death.
* ''Literature/VampireAcademy'':
** Christian Ozera's main power. He is a fire user. His first impressive feat is setting the clothes of Ralf Sarcozy on fire, scaring but not hurting him. He later uses his fire powers to kill Strigoi.
** Tasha Ozera's brand of magic. She uses her fire powers in an offensive way, and teaches Christian to do the same.
* ''Literature/RumorsBlock'': Burnout is a fire manipulating super hero. The power is apparently common enough that it took him a long time to find a name that wasn't taken.
* ''Literature/MissPeregrinesHomeForPeculiarChildren'': Emma Bloom--it's her peculiarity. By personality she's a little fiery, but not to the extreme.
* The most destructive of the mage castes in ''Literature/KronikiDrugiegoKregu'' is Sparks, with a flame as their sigil. Płomień, the Spark who features most prominently in the series, once made several glass figurines without any sort of tools - a feat noted by the narration to be several levels of difficulty above the casual flinging of fireballs, as it needs very tight control.
* In Sarah Kuhn's ''Heroine Complex''; the demon hunting defender of San Francisco Aveda Jupiter is a parlor trick level telekinetic who relies mainly on martial arts and showmanship. It is her childhood friend turned BeleagueredAssistant Evie Tanaka who has been repressing her pyrokenisis and much of her emotions since she burned down the university library three years before the start of the story.
* Despite the characters all being dragons in ''Literature/WingsOfFire'', only three out of seven types of dragons can breathe fire: [=Mudwings=], [=Skywings=], and [=Nightwings=].
* ''Literature/ReleaseThatWitch'': Anna's magic ability is control over fire. Her body is completely unharmed by any type of high tempature, and she can create and eventually control the exact temperature and shape of her flames as her abilities evolve.
* ''Literature/TheSilerianTrilogy'': The Guardians' ability, along with Calling the dead.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
%%* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': D'Hoffryn has this power. Poor Halfrek.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': All of the dragons breathe fire.
* Cassie in ''Series/TheSecretCircle'' uses dark magic to set Luke on fire.
* ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'': Callisto [[spoiler:(she was a god)]] is a [[http://i2.listal.com/image/947820/500full.jpg perfect]] [[http://www.xena.nu/callistogod.JPG example]] of this trope in both supernatural power and firey temper.
* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'':
** Claire's biological mother, Meredith, and her brother Flint (whose flames are blue, and thus more powerful. Meredith's burn red; however, she has more control. Flint is as thick as two short planks fixed together with stupid glue).
** Mrs. Comey lives at the Sullivan Bros. Carnival. She has the power to generate intense heat from her hands, which she [[MundaneUtility uses to make waffles without plugging in a waffle iron]]. The Carnival also employs the Bowmans, a family of three people (father, mother, and daughter) that can all breathe fire.
* There are a number of examples from ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and ''Franchise/PowerRangers'', with [[Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman GingaRed]], [[Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger MagiRed]]/[[Series/PowerRangersMysticForce the Red Mystic Ranger]], and [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger ShinkenRed]]/[[Series/PowerRangersSamurai the Red Samurai Ranger]] leading the list. Whenever ElementalPowers come into play, you can bet whoever's got the red suit knows how to turn up the heat! (Except Ninja Storm, where red presents [[BlowYouAway air.]] Even then, the Hawk Zord has a fire attack, and ColorCodedForYourConvenience means his weapon's blast's look pretty fiery.)
* Series/UltramanMebius' Burning Brave Mode possesses fire powers, primarily the ability to create a burst of flames used to incinerate monsters as a FinishingMove.
* ''Franchise/KamenRider'' also has some examples. Notably, [[Series/KamenRiderKuuga Kuuga's]] Mighty Form (and all its offshoots), [[Series/KamenRiderAgito Agito's]] Flame Form and Burning Form, [[Series/KamenRiderRyuki Ryuki]], [[Series/KamenRiderBlade Garren]], [[Series/KamenRiderHibiki Hibiki]], [[Series/KamenRiderKiva Kiva's]] Garulu Form, [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Double]]'s Heat Forms, [[Series/KamenRiderOOO OOO]]'s [=TaJaDor=] Combo, [[Series/KamenRiderFourze Fourze]]'s Fire States, and [[Series/KamenRiderWizard Wizard]]'s Flame Style; plus [[Series/KamenRiderDrive Drive]]'s Max Flare powerup.
* Most demons in ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' throw fireballs. Phoebe also had this power in her past life.
* ''Series/TheMysticKnightsOfTirNaNog'': Rohan's weapon ("fire within me!").
* Chan Ho Yin/Scorch on ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', in the episode "[[Recap/AgentsOfSHIELDS1E5GirlInTheFlowerDress Girl in the Flower Dress]]". Notably, in his episode, the [[ArcVillain Centipede Group]] performs experiments on him that ''remove'' his RequiredSecondaryPowers and leaves him vulnerable to his own fire powers.
* A couple of Cortexiphan guinea pigs on ''Series/{{Fringe}}'' develop pyrokinesis.
* Dani in ''Series/{{Believe}}'', perhaps a physical manifestation of her anger as she has very powerful PsychicPowers.

* Music/LindseyStirling's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sf6LD2B_kDQ Elements]]" features a lot of fire that she dances around, based in a frame quickly constructed from Home Depot materials.
* Rammstein. Shows include flamethrowers, fire-shooting masks, massive fireballs errupting from the stage, instruments shooting sparks or bursting into flames... One of their most famous gags involves singer Till Lindemann rising from stage engulfed in fire. And they would use that in their ''opening'' number.
* DJ the S' "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1n_sq7RubUM Disciple of the Fire]]" is a compilation remix of Fire-based themes from video games.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* Hephaestus from Myth/GreekMythology is the god of fire, as well as the god of the forge. Sometimes, the three solar dieties (Hyperion, Helios, and Apollo) also are associated with Fire, if not with [[LightEmUp Light]]. Also, a well-known myth tells of the Titan Prometheus, who stole fire from the gods to give to mankind.
* Surtr, Lord of the Fire Giants from Myth/NorseMythology. Also, sometimes, Loki.
%%* The goddesses Sekhmet and Wadjet and various serpents of the Duat (underworld) in Myth/EgyptianMythology.
* Pele. [[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant No, not the soccer player.]] The fire/volcano goddess of Hawaiian Mythology.
* The traditional [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragon]] of myth and legend is a creature who can breathe fire.
* Elijah from ''Literature/TheBible'' was notable to use a few fire-related thaumaturgy. Some of em also counts as KillItWithFire.
* Dietrich Von Bern, a legendary Germanic king based on the real-life Theodoric the Great, was said to have the ability to breathe fire when angry. He uses this ability against Sigfried in ''Du Rosengarten zu Worms''.

* Done in Creator/{{Bally}}'s classic ''Pinball/{{Fireball}}'', where you challenge the Fire Gods in pinball using fireballs.
* In Creator/{{Gottlieb}}'s ''Pinball/StreetFighterII'' pinball, shooting a ball into Dhalsim's saucer rewards a Flame bonus.
* The bosses Tower and The Magician from ''VideoGame/ThePinballOfTheDead'' throw fireballs.

[[folder:Pro Wrestling]]
* Throwing "fireballs" (actually just flash paper) at an opponent was an occasional heel trick in the 70s and 80s, perhaps most notably used by Wrestling/JerryLawler. Often there is no Kayfabe explanation for it. The first territory to use fire as a hazard during matches was Puerto Rico, specifically CSP.
* The infamous 1992 Wrestling/{{FMW}} Atsushi Onita & Tarzan Goto vs Wrestling/{{Sabu}} & [[Wrestling/EdFarhat Original Sheik]] no rope barbed wire death match, often held up as an argument against GarbageWrestling (or at least the horrific extremes of overdoing it), where the Sheik tried to burn his opponents with a flaming stick and ended up setting the ring on fire. The men then tried to wrestle but not a minute into the match the ring started to melt, causing them to all panic and dive out under the flames...except for the Sheik himself, who caught on fire and chastised Sabu for using water to reduce his burns because it prevented him from throwing {{fire balls}} at what he thought was the perfect time.
* In his wilder and younger days, Wrestling/MickFoley was known to do some fire-based stunts, including what he himself calls the incredibly stupid innovation of the Fire Chair--a metal folding chair wrapped in a flaming, gas-soaked rag, and used as a club. He swore off this gimmick after nearly killing Wrestling/TerryFunk with it, but has played with fire from time to time since, most notably in his Wrestling/WrestleMania match with Wrestling/{{Edge}}.
* Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s Wrestling/{{Kane}} has a great love of fire, though whether he's a pyrokinetic or just a pyromaniac tends to vary based on how realistic he's being played at the moment.
* WWE/F tried to create a fire-based {{gimmick match|es}}, the Inferno. While this looked cool, it made the match a bore, since the wrestlers were effectively trapped in the ring, and were taking too-obvious care to avoid the open flames.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* One of the most common elemental damage powers in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', with such favorites as the Wizard's Burning Hands, Fireball, Flaming Sword, and Fire Trap spells, the red dragon's breath weapon, and so on.
** The pyrokineticist prestige class embodies this trope.
** Strangely enough, the ''Druid'' class is prone to this trope, gaining spells like Produce Flame, Flame Sphere, and Flame Blade within their first few spell levels. If that's not enough, Wild Shape lets them take the forms of elementals, including, yes, FIRE.
** Ironically, fire is also the most commonly resisted damage type, leading it to being shunned by dedicated powergamers in 3rd edition in favor of [[MakeMeWannaShout sonic damage]].
* The Path of the Brilliant Flame fu path from ''TabletopGame/FengShui'' essentially gives you fiery kung fu powers. And fire is one of the most common Blast powers that a sorcerer can use.
* Fire magic is one of the most common means of offensive magic available to a Red mage in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'', along with ShockAndAwe (and more rarely DishingOutDirt). Classic Magic's most iconic fire mage is [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=109752 Jaya Ballard, Task Mage]], best known for providing the flavor text for [[http://www.wizards.com/magic/magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom/daily/mc55 many fire-related cards]]. Chandra Nalaar, her disciple of sorts, took over her role in the post-Mending era.
* Jaina Stormborne from the ''Fantasy Strike'' games sets ''herself'' on fire in addition to the usual flame attacks. In TabletopGame/{{Yomi}}, she also sets the arena floor on fire.
* The ''Firestarter'' Battlemech from ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' is dedicated to the role, mounting four fusion-powered flamethrowers.
* Creator/GamesWorkshop:
** In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'', ''TabletopGame/WarhammerAgeOfSigmar'' & ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'', the magic conjured by Tzeentch, his daemons and his followers commonly takes the form of dazzling, [[TechnicolorFire multi-coloured flames]] that can burn the very soul of the victim, mutate them beyond all recognition, or anything in between.
** In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' specifically, one of the basic forms of magic available to the majority of magic uses in the setting is the Lore of Fire that specialises in the use of pyromancy.
** ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'' specific examples:
*** Eldar who embrace the Fire Dragon Aspect do so to embrace uncontrolled destruction and mayhem. Appropriately, they grab the biggest fusion gun they can find as their weapon of choice.
*** Ork Burnaboyz tend to be rather obsessed with setting things on fire, carrying large famethrowers and sometimes setting other boyz on fire to see ‘em "do da burny dance".
*** The Inquisition loves flame-spewing weapons, allowing for easy execution of Burn the Witch!
*** The 6th Edition of the game added Pyromancy as a universal psychic power pool, as an option for many races that use psychic powers.
** ''TabletopGame/{{Necromunda}}'':
*** One of the four types of [[PsychicPowers Wyrds]] that gangs could hire in the first two editions of the game was the Pyro Wyrd. Possessing powerful pyrokinetic abilities Pyros were capable of flinging fireballs at their enemies, creating walls of flame or unleashing a blast of heat equivalent to an [[AntiVehicle anti-tank meltagun]].
*** One of the powers available to the Witches who accompany [[ReligionOfEvil Chaos Cult]] gangs in the 3rd Edition of the game is Scouring. This PsychicPower causes balefire to engulf his enemies, inflicting damage equal to auto or las weaponry.
* In ''[[TabletopGame/SeventhSea 7th Sea]]'', there is the rare sorcery "El Fuego Adentro" of Castille, where a practitioner can create and wield fire. Just don't let the [[CorruptChurch Inquisition]] find out...
* In ''TabletopGame/HeavyGear'', the ''Flammjager'' gear was not only a specialised incendiary mecha, but its pilots had a (justified) reputation as Pyromaniacs.
* The Pyrokinetic mutant ability in ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}''. Of course, [[CrapsackWorld this]] [[TotalPartyKill being]] ''[[KillerGameMaster Paranoia]]'', if it's actually helping at any point, the GM will probably cause the pyrokinetic to cook off the grenades he's carrying or otherwise inflict [[HilarityEnsues hilarity]] on the hapless fellow.
* ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu''. The Great Old One Cthugha and his Fire Vampire servants can perform fire-based attacks.

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* Lord Darkenon in ''Theatre/PoseidonsFury'' at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's Islands of Adventure]] has the ability to create and control fire, which contrasts with Poseidon's ability over water.

* There's several subspecies with this power in ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'', though some of the more notable characters are Tahu, Vakama, and Jaller. More often than not, they're TheLeader of their group.
* The Infernites from ''WesternAnimation/{{Mixels}}''. They habitat the Magma Wastelands and are one of the headliner tribes. They include Flain, Vulk, and Zorch. Wave 4 later introduced a second group of more lava-based members: Burnard, Flamzer, and Meltus.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The eponymous campaign in ''VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic III: Armageddon's Blade'' follows the story of Adrienne, a Fire Witch, who follows the trope to a 't'.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' and ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' give you several flame-based powers. Against the 80% of enemies who aren't [[MechaMooks robots]], these are the deadliest attacks in the games.
** Incinerate: [[AnAdventurerIsYou Engineer and Infiltrator]] Shepard each get this as one of their basic powers, as do Mordin in the second game and [[spoiler:EDI]] in the third. Miranda gains it in the final DLC.
** [[AbnormalAmmo Incendiary Ammo]]: given to Soldier and Vanguard Shepard, as well as Grunt and Jacob in the second game and James in the third.
** Inferno Grenade: Zaeed's bonus power in the second game, which you can give to Shepard after you unlock it, and one of Ashley's powers in the third game.
** In the third game, Engineer Shepard's heavy melee move is him/her stabbing the enemy with a ''flaming omni-blade.''
** Also, in the third game, one of the upgrades for the Sentry Turret power (possessed by Engineer Shepard) gives it a flamethrower.
* ''VideoGame/BioShock''
** The Incinerate! plasmid from ''VideoGame/BioShock1'' lets you set fire to your enemies with a snap of your fingers; in ''VideoGame/BioShock2'', upgraded versions include launching fireballs or a continuous stream of flame. The chemical thrower with napalm ammo has similar effects.
** The "Devil's Kiss" vigor of ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'' lets you toss a fireball out like a grenade. There are also the [[EliteMook Firemen]] you fight from time to time, who carry a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQmJtLU6V5g personality]] as fiery as their attacks.
%%* The Igniter from ''VideoGame/BloodlineChampions'', [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin expectedly]].
%%* Kyo Kusanagi, his father Saisyu, Iori Yagami, Ash Crimson, and most of the Kyo clones from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''. K', particularly.
* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters''
** Orochi Chris (but not Chris ''as'' Orochi) used fire, too, cementing him as the New Faces Team's Kyo counterpart.
** Shingo Yabuki, Kyo's protege, is under the impression that he can actually "shoot fire" under certain conditions, but he totally can't.
** Sho Kirishima, the original concept version of Kyo, has similar abilities (and a more exaggerated personality).
** Also, one of Kyo's strongest moves involve him being a ManOnFire, and if an opponent stands close to him before he launches the attack (since the attack can be held), they get damage - even more if their moves are countered. If Kyo's opponent takes that attack head on and gets countered - it's enough for a KO. Then again, who takes that attack head-on...
* Lucca from ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''.
* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' has this in the form of Pyromancy. Unlike [[MagicIsMental Sorcery]] or [[ReligionIsMagic Miracles]], Pyromancy Flames don't scale with any stats but their own level, and also have various support spells, like [[AwesomeButImpractical Power Within]] or [[ChromeChampion Iron Flesh]]. Due to this, it remains consistently useful throughout the game as long as the flame is upgraded frequently, often dealing more damage than high-level Sorceries in the late game.
** In order to address issues of Pyromancy being OP, later games make it so that Pyromancy now scales with intelligence (INT) and faith (FTH)...this means that a pyromancy build requires heavier investment in those two stats to make it work. In addition, pyromancies have differing requirements for both INT and FTH to even use properly.
* [[RobotGirl Mei Fang's]] default Arcana from ''VideoGame/ArcanaHeart''.
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'':
** Fire-based spells are available throughout the series as part of the Destruction school of magic, which includes the entire FireIceLightning trio. While its exact effects vary depending on the game, fire spells tend to cause the most outright damage, cost the least Magicka to cast, and often have the effect of continuing to burn the target for some time after the initial impact.
** Flame Atronachs are a type of unaligned [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] who are essentially the ElementalEmbodiment of Fire. They appear throughout the series, typically being immune to Fire damage while dishing out powerful Fire spells of their own.
** Daedroths are a [[NeverSmileAtACrocodile crocodilian]] form of lesser Daedra which appears throughout the series. They are capable of using fire-based attacks, be they magical {{Fireballs}} or "natural" [[BreathWeapon fire breath]].
** Dremora are an intelligent race of lesser Daedra who are most commonly found in the service of [[DestroyerDeity Mehrunes Dagon]] as his LegionsOfHell. Though they have been known to use other spells from the Destruction school of magic, Dremora most frequently use fire-based magic attacks.
** Scamps are the [[TheGoomba weakest]] and [[FunSize smallest]] known form of lesser Daedra. Despite this, some Scamps are capable of casting minor fire-based spells. In addition, they have [[AntiMagic a resistance]] to fire, both magical and natural. It is said that they are not bothered by heat.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', this is the standard attack of Nymphs. They use a mystical fire spell which drains stamina in addition to health.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', fire-magic tends to be the ''least'' useful of the three elements of Destruction spell, as over half of the [=NPCs=] in the game are the fire-resistant [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmer]]. This reverses for ''Bloodmoon'' expansion, where the snowy atmosphere lends itself to many ice-based opponents who are severely weak to fire.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', you shoot, well, {{Fireballs}}.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'':
*** You can shoot fireballs, emit a constant stream of fire from the palm of your hand, lay fire rune traps, enchant your weapons to do fire damage and cause a huge explosion by hitting the ground with your fist.
*** In addition to standard fire spells, both dragons and the [[PlayerCharacter Dragonborn]] can use the [[MakeMeWannaShout Thu'um]] to [[BreathWeapon "breathe" fire]].[[note]]Technically, they aren't "breathing" it. Rather, they are using the draconic LanguageOfMagic to command fire into existence. Functionally, it's the same.[[/note]]
*** At several [[OurGiantsAreBigger Giant]] camps, one can find humanoid remains tied to spits over their campfires. It is unclear if this is simply a method of executing intruders or if this is part of their [[ImAHumanitarian meal preparation]].
*** Hagravens, a species of flightless [[HarpingOnAboutHarpies harpy]] who were [[WasOnceAMan once mortal women]] that performed a ritual to trade in their humanity for [[WitchSpecies access to powerful magic]], have a preference for using fire-based magic. In particular, they prefer fire-based spells with a large AreaOfEffect.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline Online]]'' introduces Daedric Titans, a type of lesser Daedra created by [[GodOfEvil Molag Bal]], the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[TheCorrupter Domination and Corruption]], by corrupting ''dragons''. Ash Titans are a stronger variant created by [[DestroyerDeity Mehrunes Dagon]] and imbued with fire magic.
* Sure, psyblasts and levitation are probably more useful than pyrokinesis, but setting squirrels on fire with your mind is one of the best parts of ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}''.
* Billy Kane in ''VideoGame/FatalFury'' can channel fire through his bo staff. Ironically, he hates smoking.
** In ''Fatal Fury 2'', Mai Shiranui comes in with an arsenal of flame-based attacks, which she has retained since.
** And then there's Kim Jae Hoon and Kevin....
* Stahn Aileron from ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'' thanks to the Swordian Dymlos, who also specialized in fire when he was still human. His son, Kyle Dunamis, is surprisingly more variative in element.
%%** Ruca Milda from ''VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence''.
%%** Amber Hearts from ''VideoGame/TalesOfHearts''.
%%** Largo and Guy's Mystic Artes from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss''
** Although she ''does'' have access to spells of every element, Rita Mordio from "VideoGames/TalesOfVesperia" always defaults to casting Fireball in cutscenes, and it's implied in a few skits that it's her favorite spell to use in general.
** Alvin from ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' can use all six elements, but his strongest attacks and his mystic arte use fire. Milla is supposedly a master of all elements but specializes in fire alongside wind, light, and lightning[[note]]Fire and Wind combined[[/note]] Agria of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Chimeriad]] is the fire specialist in their FourElementEnsemble and [[BigBad Gaius]] uses a fire-themed mystic arte despite his main element being light.
* Three characters from ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'': ArrogantKungFuGuy Hwang Yang Long and his Fire Elemental Lord Granveil from ''SRW Gaiden: Masou Kishin'' (also ''SRW EX''), AxCrazy Ignis and his Ruina mecha Impetus from ''SRW: Destiny'', and, finally, AloofBigBrother Altis Tarl of the Shura and his Shura God Mardikt.
* Yukimura Sanada, Shingen, Nohime, Chosokabe Motochika, Toshiie Maeda, Magoichi Saika, Hisahide Matsunaga, and Xavi from ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara''. [[JokeCharacter Hideaki Kobayakawa]] may count as well.
* Fire is the element that draws from the Red Moon in ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'', and it also provides status buffs. [[TheHero Vyse]] has the second-weakest magical power in the game (the weakest being [[MightyGlacier Drachma]]), but he can learn all of the fire spells quicker than the others. And though Aika learns [[GreenThumb nature spells]] the quickest, all of her Super Moves are fire-based.
* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' has Mario and Luigi. Grabbing a [[PowerUp Fire Flower]] allows them to shoot fireballs from their hands, giving an alternative to the GoombaStomp. Spin-off games often give Mario fire abilities that don't require the Fire Flower to be activated. Though, while Mario is consistency associated with fire, Luigi is just a likely to get a different element in contrast to his brother as he is to get fire.
* ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''
** Both Mario and Luigi can shoot fireballs (Luigi's are green). Mario's Final Smash in ''Brawl'' is a pair of fireballs in the form of a KamehameHadoken.
** Bowser can breathe fire, while both Roy and Ike can deliver fire-powered slashes with their swords. [[VideoGame/FZero Captain Falcon]] uses his punch instead.
** [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Charizard]] qualifies, being a Fire-type Pokémon.
** [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Ryu]] also qualifies with his [[KamehameHadouken Shakunetsu Hadouken]].
* Lee Rekka and Kagami (who even uses one of Kyo's signature attacks and resembles Kyo a great deal) from ''VideoGame/TheLastBlade'' series.
* ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'':
** Fire is one of the most basic spells for the protagonists; usually it takes the form of a fiery projectile, but the second game veils the user in flames instead for an area-wide attack.
** BreakoutCharacter Axel[=/=]Lea is the fire specialist among Organization XIII's various elemental powers. He's been shown launching fireballs, setting his weapons on fire, creating walls of flame and melting the floor underneath him.
-->'''Axel:''' ''(mid-battle)'' Burn, baby!
** In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', Mulan's skills and Limit Break are all fire-based, due to being used along with Mushu. Mushu himself was a fire-based Summon in [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI the first game.]]
* Sonic in ''VideoGame/SonicColors'', through the use of the DS-exclusive Red Wisp that gives him the power to turn into a fireball, much like the fire shield from ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles''.
** Another Sonic example would be [[MeaningfulName Blaze]] the Cat from the ''VideoGame/SonicRushSeries'', a princess from AnotherDimension who is [[CursedWithAwesome born with]] fire powers.
* In Capcom's ''Franchise/MegaMan'' series, this trope is applied to fire-oriented Robot Master. Such as Fire Man from the first game, Heat Man from ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'', etc.
** Fefnir from ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' and, by extension, Mega Man Model F from ''VideoGame/MegaManZX''.
** And also the net navi versions of the above robot masters from VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork and the fire lion power up from ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce'', which is also called Fire Leo (not related to the one listed below).
** And from ''VideoGame/MegaManX'', there's Flame Mammoth, Flame Stag, Magma Dragoon, Mattrex/Burn Dinorex, Blaze Heatnix, Flame Hyenard, and Burn Rooster. ''X3'' is the only game in the series without a fire-elemental boss.
* Fire Leo from ''VideoGame/ViewtifulJoe''. Joe himself gets fire powers from using his fast forward ability.
* Main character Batsu Ichimonji from ''VideoGame/RivalSchools'' has a SuperMode in the sequel ''Project Justice'', [[HotBlooded Burning]] Batsu, which gives his ki fire-like properties.
** Hinata, being a student of [[StreetFighter Master's style Karate]], has flame-like properties in many of her attacks.
* In ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'', several characters bust out with the occasional fire attack, including Robo-Ky, Axl, Faust, Potemkin, and Bridget. Sol Badguy is the most common, as almost all of his special moves light opponents on fire.
* Bang Shishigami from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue''. His Drive attack is pretty much the only thing in the game that sets the enemy ablaze. ''Chronophantasma'' introduces Bullet, who has the pyrokinetic gauntlet armagus.
* The ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games have multiple examples: %%* Ifrit from most ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' games is the living incarnation of PlayingWithFire.
** [[ThePhoenix Phoenix]], another Summon, burns your enemies while simultaneously reviving/healing allies.
** Terra from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' specializes in fire magic, learning Fire/Fira/Firaga and Meltdown naturally
** Sazh of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' gets the Fire line of spells most readily, including Firaga, while getting no direct Water or Blizzard spells at all. His summon, Brynhildr, is fire-based as well.
** Seifer from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' specializes in using fire magic, starting every one of his LimitBreak attacks with a fire spell.
** In the ''VideoGame/{{Dissidia|Final Fantasy}}'' series, Cloud specializes in the Fire line of spells, since, unlike nearly other character with black magic spells, Cloud *only* uses the Fire line, and is the one of the few characters in the game to have more than one or two tiers of a spell line.
* The ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' series have their fair share of fire-starters:
** ''VideoGame/KirbysAdventure'' introduced Fire Kirby and recurring foes Flamer, Hot Head, Fire Lion, and Mr. Bright.
** Burning Leo from ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'' and ''VideoGame/KirbyStarAllies''.
** ''VideoGame/KirbyTripleDeluxe'' introduces Flame Galboros, a fiery version of [[MakingASplash Water Galboros]].
* Kazuki, Kyoshiro, and Tam Tam from ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown''. Kazuki's special moves all involve fire (except for Bust Kazuki, which is more about exploding), breathing fire is one of Kyoshiro's signature special moves, and Tam Tam can also cough up fireballs of varying intensity. Sieger's moves sometimes burn opponents, but that's because his gauntlet uses gunpowder.
* While the Pyro from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' usually ''attacks'' with a flamethrower, two of his taunts (Hadoken and Armageddon) have him seemingly creating fire from his own body.
* Ignus from ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'', who has been turned into a living conduit to the Plane of Fire. And ''likes it''.
* Dhalsim from the ''VideoGame/StreetFighter'' series breathes fire as one of his special moves. His ability comes as a gift of Agni, the Hindu god of fire.
** Ken likes to set opponents ablaze with his Dragon Punch, while Fei Long does the same with his Dragon Kick.
** In some games, Ryu can produce fire Hadokens as well.
** Crimson Viper from ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIV'' uses both fire and [[ShockAndAwe lightning]] in her special attack arsenal.
** Akuma can produce the flame-encrusted Hadoken (in the regular StreetFighter games) or Shoryuken (in the ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' series).
** Gill, when he hits you with the fire half part of his body (the other half is [[AnIcePerson ice]]).
* Liu Kang from ''VideoGame/MortalKombat'' is fond of mixing fireballs with his Shaolin-style kung fu.
** Scorpion is fond of breathing fire (especially as a fatality).
** Sonya Blade is also known for setting opponents ablaze with her signature fatality.
** Shang Tsung and his penchant for hurling flaming skulls at people and sending gouts of fire shooting up at people during his fights (when he's not morphing into other fighters, that is).
** Tanya and Kai from Mortal Kombat 4 also qualify.
* Garet and Jenna are the Mars Adepts[[note]]individuals utilizing fire-based [[PsychicPowers Psynergy]][[/note]] present in ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' and ''Golden Sun: The Lost Age'', with [[FieryRedhead fiery personalities and red hair]], to boot. The villainous duos of each game (Saturos and Menardi in the first game; Agatio and Karst in the second game), hailing from a fire-wielding clan, also fall under this trope. The third game, ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'', has Garet's son Tyrell [[{{Pun}} picking up the torch]] alongside Eoleo, who's element was previously something of a mystery.
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'': For all main games, one of the starters will always be Fire-Type.
** Specialists of the type include Kanto Gym Leader Blaine, Hoenn Gym Leader Flannery, Sinnoh Elite Four member Flint, Unova Gym Leader Chili, Kalos Elite Four member Malva, and Alolan Captain Kiawe all specialize in using Fire-type {{Mons}}.
** All Fire-type Pokémon themselves also qualify, with certain Pokémon capable of using Fire-type ''moves'' like Flamethrower despite not being actual Fire-types (such as the Dragon Pokémon Dragonite).
** In offense, Fire is one of the best types, thanks to its ability to do damage to Steel-type. In defense, is a bad type being weak to Water, Rock and Ground (all teams carrying Earthquake and Stealth Rock doesn't help). Improved slightly thanks to its new resistance to Fairy.
** Usually Fire Pokemon have high Special Attack (there are some ones with high Attack instead) and usually decent speed. However, they usually have subpar defenses.
** Fire is also one of the more common types for Legendary Pokémon. Examples include Moltres, Entei, Ho-Oh, Heatran, Reshiram, and Primal Groudon.
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'': Link uses [[ArrowsOnFire Fire arrows]] in no fewer than three games, with a fourth having Link rained on by arrows himself. ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' also had the Din's Fire magic. The Fire Rod is another example.
* From ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'':
** In general, Agi skills are some of the most common skills throughout the entire franchise. Depending on the game, you may get a fourth-tier, single-target fire spell either called Ragnarok or Trisagion.
** Walter from ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' is fond of using fire spells when he's not using physical attacks. Preceding him was the Chaos Hero of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiI'', who acted similarly.
** [[MeaningfulName Heat]] from ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'', who also happens to be a FieryRedhead.
** ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'':
*** [[TheHero Tatsuya Suou]] from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'', whose Persona is Vulcanus.
*** Junpei Iori from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' has some fire magic with his Persona and is strong against fire spells, although he mostly uses physical attacks. Koromaru the dog applies as well; although his Persona also has [[DarkIsEdgy Dark-type attacks]], you'll probably see him using fire in most boss battles.
*** Yukiko Amagi from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' also has fire magic with her Persona, but unlike Junpei, she focuses herself more on magic power, thus her fire magic usually does more damage. With Yukiko, it's particularly ironic, as her name means "snow child".
*** From ''VideoGAme/Persona5'', Ann Takamaki's Persona specializes in hard-hitting fire magic.
* Pyron from the ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' games is a GalacticConqueror who is basically a walking star and, accordingly, is ''made'' of fire.
* Garr from ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireIII'' is naturally strong to fire (taking half normal damage from it) and has a few fire-related abilities. Considering that he looks like a demon, it probably fits the theme.
* Several examples in ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'':
** [[{{Immortality}} Fujiwara no Mokou]] is a human embodiment of a [[ThePhoenix phoenix]] and, in a few attacks, flings massive [[AnimalMotifs bird-shaped]] flame danmaku, flame bombs which have huge range, and simply tries to overwhelm you with fire.
** [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Kaguya Houraisan]], Mokou's deadly rival and fellow immortal, also has fire-related attacks, courtesy of her "[[ImpossibleTask impossible items]]" [[TheCollector collection]].
** [[SquishyWizard Patchouli Knowledge]] uses fire as one of her [[ElementalPowers seven elements]]. She also has a [[ThePowerOfTheSun solar element]] attack called Royal Flare which does basically the same thing on a grander scale.
** [[CreepyCrows Hell raven]] Utsuho Reiuji in ''Subterranean Animism'' may also count, as she launches ''massive'' mini-suns at you.
** [[{{Catgirl}} Rin Kaenbyou]] from the same game also has control over fire (and zombies). For that matter, the entire Komeiji household is tasked with ''controlling HellFire''.
** [[PersonOfMassDestruction Flandre Scarlet]] has [[Myth/NorseMythology Lævateinn]], which takes form of a [[FlamingSword flaming]] {{BFS}}.
** [[{{UsefulNotes/Onmyodo}} Mononobe no Futo]] briefly shows it during one of her spellcards, as part of her "manipulation of Feng Shui" power.
* ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' includes a fire-based set for pretty much everything - melee, ranged, buffs and debuffs, control...
** There's also the Hellions, the demonically-themed gang of pyromaniacs you start off fighting against. [[{{Mook}} Blood Brothers]] and [[EliteMook Fallen]] have resistance to fire, while bosses from this gang have full-on pyrokinesis.
* Warlocks and Mages in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' both have a talent tree that specializes in fire damage. Shamans have some fire spells as well, although they primarily use lightning magic. Fire mages also tend to have much less survivability than Frost.
** Ragnaros the Firelord and his fire elemental minions. His plane is even called the Firelands.
* One of the Elementalist skill sets in ''VideoGame/GuildWars'' is Fire Magic, though it's the most single-minded skillset of the class, focusing on one thing: damage, and in large quantities.
* BlackMagicianGirl Cierra from ''VideoGame/RivieraThePromisedLand'' can use all kinds of magic, but her most powerful attacks are fire-based.
* [[VideoGame/Disgaea2CursedMemories Adell]] and [[VideoGame/Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice Raspberyl]] from the ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' series specialize in fire techniques. Red Skull and Mage classes also use fire spells.
** The Dragon, Entei, and Ifrit monster classes all specialize in fire attacks, as well (save for the first game, where the former two used attacks of whatever element they had an affinity for). The Dragon mostly uses it as a BreathWeapon, while the latter two manipulate it in a more spectacular fashion.
* Burn Griffith and Regina Belfrond of ''VideoGame/PsychicForce''.
* Subverted in ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' with Akiha. The description of her power mentions the burning sensation as though you're on fire and that, if you can see it, it looks like thin burning red lines coming at you. She's [[{{Tsundere}} a bit]] of a FieryRedhead when using her power and is also prone to 'kill it now ask questions later'. However, her power is actually something called Plunder and ''apparently'' involves the absorption of life energy itself.
* Genesis Rhapsodos, the BigBad of ''VideoGame/CrisisCore: VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', is an extremely skilled fire magic user.
* Xan, the Pyromancer from ''VideoGame/DragonFable''. To emphasize his love of fire and his AxCrazy nature, a quest lets you control him. Here's his command list:
--->Attack (with Fists of Fire)
--->More Fire
--->Lots of Fire
--->Even More Fire
** Later on, he reanimates the Great Dragon of Fire using the power gained from the Orb of Fire.
** His apprentice Drakonnan gets in on the action by upping his fire power with the Orb of Fire. While Xan can be entertaining due to his craziness, Drakonnan has a thing for RevengeByProxy. [[DracoInLeatherPants Yet oh how the fan girls spring to Drakonnan's defense...]]
* Fire is a powerup in many ''VideoGame/BackyardSports'' games.
* Dison in [[VideoGame/VisionsAndVoices Visions & Voices]] specializes in Fire skills.
* All the units with some sort of firepower in the ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'' games. Given that warfare is a major aspect and firepower is prevalent for most offensive units, some really are adept at the term. Look at the Flame Tanks and Flamethrower Infantry in ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianDawn Tiberian Dawn]]''. Not only do they dish out massive damage at enemy infantries, but when your unit with flammable weaponry is killed, it goes up in massive flames, thus inflicting moderate damage on nearby units and structures, whether friend, foe, or neutral. This trait is also noticeable on GDI Grenadiers, but the resulting explosion is of a lesser degree. It makes a comeback in the Flame Towers, Flamethrower Infantry, and Grenadiers of the Soviet faction in ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert Red Alert]]''. In the Aftermath expansion, the Demolition Truck is available as a deliberate suicide unit; get these suicide bombing trucks out of your base right when you can, because once it explodes, the explosion is of a massive size.
* VideoGame/{{Karnov}}, Russian strongman and one-time mascot of Data East, breathes fire.
* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'': Army Dillo shoots fireballs from his cannons, Dogadon and Puftoss spit them from their mouths, and Mad Jack throws them by hand. Since you rematch Army Dillo and Dogadon, that means six of the game's eight bosses use fireballs to attack.
* In ''Franchise/DragonAge'', all mages can learn fire spells if the player chooses, but a few stand out.
** Velanna in ''[[VideoGame/DragonAgeOriginsAwakening Awakening]]'' starts off with all Fire spells unlocked. This may count as a bit of ActorAllusion, as she shares her [[Creator/GreyDeLisle voice actress]] with [[WesternAnimation/XiaolinShowdown two other]] [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender masters of fire magic]].
** Bethany in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' starts with the Fireball spell and uses fire the most frequently in cutscenes.
** Solas in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' is the only companion with access to the [[LimitBreak Firestorm spell]].
* Amaterasu in ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}''. Her signature weapon is a flaming disc she carries on her back; she ''is'' the Goddess of the Sun, after all. She also gains the power to control fire from the God of Fire, Moegami.
* In ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'', [[ComicBook/XMen Phoenix]], [[Comicbook/DoctorStrange Dormammu,]] and [[VideoGame/GhostsNGoblins Arthur]] specialize in Fire attacks.
* Nix in ''VideoGame/{{inFAMOUS 2}}'' has powers over fire and oil, which Cole can actually gain a bit of if he decides to do a power transfer with her.
* Delsin from ''VideoGame/InFamousSecondSon'' has fire/smoke powers as the first one he starts off with.
* Whichever of the 3 main characters that inherits the True Fire Rune from "The Flame Champion" in ''VideoGame/SuikodenIII''.
* Soki from ''[[VideoGame/{{Onimusha}} Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams.]]''
* Aya from ''VideoGame/InfiniteUndiscovery''
* Zorne from ''{{VideoGame/Rosenkreuzstilette}}'' manifests this power in the form of creating [[StuffBlowingUp bo]][[ThrowDownTheBomblet mbs]].
* In ''VideoGame/TheTowerOfDruaga'', sorcerers cast spells that start fires.
* Plasmagenetic creatures from ''VideoGame/DarkSpore'' are a mixture between this trope and ShockAndAwe.
* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' has quite a few, as the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylFzJ3wRgHw opening movie shows.]]
** [=PCs=] can learn the art of Pyromancy, though its control of the fire also branches into such effects as gaining fire resistance through sweating, acid, and charming the Undead.
* Goenji Shuuya (Axel [[MeaningfulName Blaze]]) from ''VideoGame/InazumaEleven'' is a fire elemental ''soccer player'', who takes this trope up by creating fire tornadoes and summoning fire gigas-like effects during his special shoots.
* Pyrrhon in ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' is the Sun God, so his entire body is engulfed in fire. For his moves and actions, think like [[Comicbook/GhostRider Johnny Blaze]] but much more [[{{Camp}} cheesy]].
* Ignitus, the Fire Guardian from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro''. An elderly dragon who serves as Spyro's mentor and father figure who is capable of blasting all of his enemies away by exploding with fire!
* Aurora in ''VideoGame/BlackSigil''. Also [[spoiler:Doll]], who can use all elements.
* Not counting skins, there are 3 fire based Champions in ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends''.
** [[ChildMage Annie, the Dark Child]] has various fire spells and a [[BearsAreBadNews giant]] [[IncendiaryExponent flaming]] bear called [[FluffyTheTerrible Tibbers]]
** Brand, the Burning Vengeance, a [[GlassCannon high damage mage]] with nothing but damaging fire spells
** [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons Shyvana, the Half-Dragon]], [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin being what she is]] allows for a lot of [[BreathWeapon fire breathing]], even more when she uses her ultimate ability to [[VoluntaryShapeshifting morph into a dragon]].
* ''VideoGame/DefenseOfTheAncients'':
** Lina, the Slayer, already based on [[LightNovel/{{Slayers}} Lina Inverse]], specializes in hot, burning fire magic, with her quotes mostly about fire. Strangely, her ultimate is instead [[ShockAndAwe lightning elemental]].
** [[ThePhoenix The literally-named Phoenix]] also comes with fire power.
** Batrider carries several explosives that explodes, can leave a trail of burning fire on his path, or tie an enemy up and drag them with fire lasso.
** Bone Clinkz, the Bone Fletcher, comes with the skill to set his arrows on fire, adding extra damage.
** Xin the Ember Spirit, befitting of his name, is a spirit made of fire, wields a fire sword and all his skills involve manipulating fire to either damage others or using various utility.
* In ''VideoGame/AWitchsTale'', Lyra's doll ability is to cast a powerful Volc spell.
* Maxim specializes in the fire element in ''VideoGame/LufiaCurseOfTheSinistrals''. This is in contrast to [[VideoGame/LufiaIIRiseOfTheSinistrals the original game]], where he could use the basic elements ''except'' for fire for some reason.
* The pyrokineticist class in ''VideoGame/TelepathTactics''. In the campaign, Bloodbeard's bandits use pyrokineticists as their psy fighters of choice -- one of them, Rebecca [[MeaningfulName Flare]], can be swayed to your side. [[BigBad Tarion]] is a pyrokineticist himself.
-->'''Tarion:''' You are nothing but food. [[PreAsskickingOneLiner As befits raw meat, I will now cook you alive.]]
* The Wizard of ''VideoGame/DragonsCrown'' seems to use fire as his primary element. Not only does he have several fire spells, from the simple Blaze to the AwesomeButImpractical Meteor Swarm, but he also uses a fire staff as his starting weapon.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Shantae}}: Risky's Revenge'', Shantae could get a set of fire magic that lets her cast fire balls and flamethrowers to burn her enemies with.
* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'''s Toriel demonstrates this power in the intro when she [[BigDamnHeroes saves the Protagonist from being unavoidably killed by Flowey]] and in her BossBattle some time later, where all of her attacks involve fireballs. [[spoiler: This isn't limited to just her, either. Asgore, her ex-husband, also uses a lot of fire attacks. To a lesser extent, Asriel, the two's deceased son, can also use this, although he only ever uses a fire attack if the player allows him to take his turn quickly enough]].
* Several monsters in ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'', such as [[MightyGlacier Akantor]], [[AlwaysMale Rathalos]], and [[AlwaysFemale Rathian]].
* In ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'', you can utilize one of three Solar Light subclasses: Hunter - Gunslinger; Warlock - Sunsinger; Titan - Sunbreaker.
* ''VideoGame/{{Nihilumbra}}'': Red burns anything that steps on it, including enemies, or you.
* Charnok from ''VideoGame/{{Gigantic}}'' is a [[DraconicHumanoid drakkor]] sorcerer, and can wield fire both via his magic and his [[BreathWeapon natural ability to breathe it]].
* The ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series has several fire magic tomes that are usable by the [[BlackMage Anima mage]] (sometimes just "Mage") class, ranging from the basic Fire spell that shoots a small fireball at an enemy, to extremely powerful spells like Bolganone (which opens up a volcanic fissure and incinerates enemies with the fiery explosion) and Meteor (which calls down a gigantic flaming meteor that deals damage in a wide area).
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar'' and ''VideoGame/FireEmblemThracia776'' features a noble house full of mages specializing in Fire Magic, the House of Velthomer. Its leader, Arvis, is known for the ancestral fire tome Valflame, which is not only powerful, but also most famously used to [[spoiler:roast the first half's main character Sigurd to permanent death]].
* Satomi Yajima from ''VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo'' uses fire based ki attacks
* ''VideoGame/MoshiMonsters'': Diavlos' heads have pits of lava and fire in them, and firebugs can produce fire on the tops of their antennae, that runs on hot sauce.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* The Fire-Human, from ''Machinima/WaterHuman''. He literally looks like he's made of fire and might, in fact, be just an ElementalEmbodiment. His servants also have fire spells.
* ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'': Killer Monster can spit fireballs and breathe fire. [[MagmaMan He also has lava powers.]]
** ???'s [[Franchise/{{Digimon}} Tyrannomon]], fitting with the source material, can also spit fireballs and breathe fire.
** Averted with Fire Guy. Despite being a fireball, he has no command over it whatsoever.
* ''WebAnimation/{{Dreamscape}}'': Melissa has pyrokinesis.
** Drake can restrain opponents with [[GiantHandsOfDoom hands made of fire.]]
** The pink fairy of Eleenin's FireIceLightning fairy trio has fire powers.
* Lewis from ''WebAnimation/MysterySkullsAnimated'' uses his ghostly abilities to light some candles, braziers and his own hair with with magenta flames before filling an entire haunted mansion with the stuff. He is also able wreath his hands in the purple flames in a fight.

%%* Ane from ''[[http://pumpkinflower.comicgenesis.com Pumpkin Flower]]''.
* Cliff and Duster from ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'' have the 'Siara Special'. It's powerful enough to ruin even a high-ranking Angel's afternoon. To a lesser extent, J has a tendency to make anything he touches explode.
%%* Sandra in ''Webcomic/ZebraGirl''. "you, fire!"
* Butterfly from ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}'' apparently picked up this ability from Trina. She is a somewhat rare case of a non-PyroManiac villain to use this trope.
%%* Richard from ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' has his classic 'Fwoosh'.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'', any drow with a [[ElementalPowers fire affinity]] or a [[PowerCrystal fire foci]] can use this trope. ElementalBaggage, however, is {{Averted}}: fire needs to be present in some form. Therefore, fire-aligned mana users either carry around little burners - "fire pots" - or strike a spark when they require access to flame.
** Of the ''Drowtales'' fire users, [[PunctuationShaker Chirinide Val'Kyorl'solenurn]] stands out the most:

* John Henry Hunter in ''Webcomic/NextTownOver''. Aside from being able to produce flames from things like alcohol or matches, he is also able to mess with guns being fired, making it hard for people to shoot him.
* In ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'', Antimony soon received a [[AmplifierArtifact Blinker Stone]] and quickly [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=137 learned]] to use it, mostly for [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=412 various]] [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=628 pyrotechnic]] [[http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/archive_page.php?comicID=621 effects]].

** Later, it is revealed that [[spoiler: she, like her mother, are actually descendants of a Fire Elemental/Human pairing, and thus have a bit of supernatural fire burning inside them.]] Coyote makes a bit of a point out of the fact that, while she can generally be mistaken for an EmotionlessGirl, the right [[BerserkButton prompting]] can cause Annie's temper to 'flare' with REMARKABLE speed.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Pacificators}}'', we have a few people with this power: [[FieryRedhead Cinna]], [[LargeHam Shiva]], [[GrumpyOldMan Yuma]], and [[ProperLady Kathy.]]
** Pacificators Cinna is a rank B, and Kathy a rank Elite (Elite is the highest possible rank. B is the third highest). Renegades Shiva, who is the only character capable of a [[DishingOutDirt second power]], is an unknown low type and Yuma is a type 7 (the lowest is 1, the highest is 10). They all have to have fuel of some kind with them; it's impossible for them to [[http://www.sailorenergy.net/MangaPacificators/PacificatorsVol3Chapter03n170.jpg generate fire without fuel and oxygen.]] They also [[http://www.sailorenergy.net/MangaPacificators2/MangaPacVol4n176c.jpg carry bombs with them]] (only the Elite-ranked Pacificators are allowed to carry liquid fuel with them).
** Having the power of fire isn't all that awesome, though. They [[http://www.sailorenergy.net/MangaPacificators/MangaPacisV01CH01P194.html overheat]] if they get [[http://www.sailorenergy.net/MangaPacificators/MangaPacisV01CH01P195.html too angry.]]
* In ''Webcomic/TheRedStar'', [[http://www.beyondrealitymedia.com/the-red-star/issue-1/page-8/ sorceresses can light cigarettes -- indeed soldiers considered it lucky.]] [[http://www.beyondrealitymedia.com/the-red-star/issue-1/page-19/ It can also be used to more dramatic effect.]]
* In ''Webcomic/DragonMango'', [[http://dragon-mango.com/comic/chapter07/dm07-36.htm Mango's powers are mostly fire-based.]]
* In ''Webcomic/CucumberQuest'', [[http://cucumber.gigidigi.com/cq/page-143/ Cucumber uses fire magic.]] [[http://cucumber.gigidigi.com/cq/page-144/ The crabs even use the trope name.]]
* In ''Webcomic/WhenSheWasBad'', Gail temporarily gains pyrokinesis as her unstable, constantly-changing secondary superpower.
* In ''Webcomic/TowerOfGod'' Yeon's powers are fire based. She gives [[TeamKiller Friendly Fire]] another meaning, too. There's also Quaetro Blitz and (according to WordOfGod) Quant.
* In ''Webcomic/WonderWeenies'', Dee can spout flame from her hands, which noticeably also catch fire without harming her.
* In ''Webcomic/ChampionsOfFaraus'', fire spirits([[OurSpiritsAreDifferent which are more like elementals]]) can shoot fireballs from their hands.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Maliki}}'', Tan can emit and manipulate fire.
* Red of the Waddle Dee Bros is seen attacking with fire in "Webcomic/KirbyCardClash"
* Celina of ''Webcomic/{{Imp}}'' conjures green fire as her default attack.

* In the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'', Fireball. And Sparkler, after she gets her power gauntlets in the first Ayla story.
** In "Christmas Elves", Fey quite ''literally'' plays with fire -- and then turns it back on the [[{{Mook}} mooks]] who thought using flamethrowers against the reincarnation of a Sidhe queen on excellent terms with fire elementals back in the day was a good idea.
* In Literature/DeadWest, the Porcelain Doctor has this, paired with HealingHands and a couple of other PsychicPowers. At the time the story begins, this power starts to [[PowerIncontinence overflow]], making him running a constant fever. This particular gift comes in handy for [[HealingFire field operations]] after clashes with the shamblers.
%%* ''Literature/NewYorkMagician'': [[spoiler:Melooch and his Rider]].
%%* In ''Literature/TrintonChronicles'', there is Jay, Sara, Scorch, along with a few other characters who seem to have this power. It's a fairly common supernatural power, it seems.
* The [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]] is often associated with fire, whether causing it or just being attracted to it. There's also [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin TheArsonist]] of Blog/DreamsInDarkness.
* The ''Fanfic/AntiClicheAndMarySueEliminationSociety'''s Tash uses very powerful fire magic, first with a [[MagicStaff staff]], then with a [[CoolSword sword]].
* ''WebVideo/{{Chronicles of Syntax}}'' has Shia, who can manipulate her own thermal energy to create and control fire. Unlike some other examples, she's neither a redhead not hotblooded. In fact, she can be quite the {{Cloudcuckoolander}} at times. Unless she's actually trying to kill you, in which case avoiding {{fireballs}} becomes a necessary skill.
* Frollo has command over pyrokinetic magic, as well as a fireplace that doubles as a TV and computer, on ''WebAnimation/TheFrolloShow''.
* ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' has a few, most notably Burnscar, a member of the [[SerialKiller Slaughterhouse Nine]], who can create intense fires and teleport between flames. The more fire she uses, however, the more damaged and weakened her emotions get--and she's already pretty unstable, having joined the Nine after escaping from a mental institution.
* [[TheSaints Marcus]] is the only mage seen using fire so far, wielding it when [[BigDamnHeroes he rescued the group]] from a mob of [[OurGhostsAreDifferent feral ghosts]].
* ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' has fire elementalists that include Roxana and Pironess, the Phoenix of fire.
* [[spoiler:Agent Hu]] from ''Literature/{{Curveball}}'' can become a living pillar of flame ([[RequiredSecondaryPowers asbestos underwear]] [[ClothingDamage not included]]).
* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation''
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2757 SCP-2757 ("Dr. Wondertainment's Projector Fantastico™")]]. When the SCP-2757 projector is used with the film SCP-2757-1e ''The Valiant Crusaders'', one of the powers gained by the experimental subjects is pyrokinesis.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2814 SCP-2814 ("Heretic of the Torch")]]. When a human being wears the SCP-2814 mask they can (a) manipulate fire as if it were a liquid or solid (b) modify the temperature of fire under their control (c) touch or "hold" their fire without being harmed and (d) take no damage from heat or flame up to 5000 °C.
* Oddly enough for a {{Mons}} setting, WebOriginal/{{Mortasheen}} has only two of these: [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/smoldron.htm Smoldron]]and [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/thermalunk.htm Thermalunk]]. Presumably because of the fact that most monsters can use these powers via PsychicPowers.
* One of the first major villains in [[Creator/BobChipman MovieBob]]'s ''The Game Overthinker'' series is a Fire ninja known as Pyrothinker, who burns down classic game stores and arcades. A few episodes later he is revealed to have an [[AnIcePerson Ice]] [[FireIceDuo counterpart]] in the Cryothinker.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Flame Princess]] from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', alongside many residents of [[LethalLavaLand the Flame Kingdom]].
* ''Franchise/AvatarTheLastAirbender'':
** Firebenders, obviously. A select few also have secondary abilities like lightningbending (ShockAndAwe) and combustionbending (explosive lasers, basically). The interesting part is that not ''all'' of them fit the hot-tempered mold that usually goes along with fire powers, given that they are an entire ''culture''. Zuko is plenty hot-headed, but his sister Azula is more cold and cunning, which her blue fire [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience reflects]]. Their father Ozai is somewhere in between, while Iroh has the personality of a warm campfire.
** Aang, on the other hand, once he accepts that Firebending does not equal BadPowersBadPeople, comes fairly close to Iroh's version of this, though he does become considerably more focused; it's implied that Firebenders have a tendency to become overly intense and {{Determinator}}s.
** In the [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender original show]], the Fire Nation's philosophy of firebending via rage plays a part in their hot-headed tempers; the Sun Warriors, the descendants of the original Firebending civilization, passed onto Iroh, Zuko, and Aang the original, life-affirming form of firebending that averts the need for firebenders to be HotBlooded to [[PsychoactivePowers use their powers]]. It is indicated that this style of firebending allows for far more control than rage-bending does.
** Then there's Mako from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', who's pretty much TheStoic ("cool under fire," as a sports announcer puts it). Avatar Korra herself fits the HotBlooded stereotype and it's interesting to note that she will default to fire even though she's a Waterbender by birth.
* ''Franchise/Ben10'':
** Heatblast from ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'' is a an alien made of flames that can breath, absorb, and manipulate fire in general.
** Swampfire from ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' can shoot fire from his hands. His ultimate version from ''WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien'' can also throw the combustible sap from his body and light it on fire.
%%* Wheeler in ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers''.
%%* Shendu and son Drago from ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'', along with anyone using the former's Dragon Talisman.
* Lucius on ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' sometimes shows the ability to do this, but it's mostly treated as a RunningGag when he's angry. WordOfGod says he has some powers he refuses to use out of {{pride}}. Presumably, this is one of them.
* Most villains in the ''WesternAnimation/MenInBlack'' animated show have some [[BizarreAlienBiology alien biology]]-[[LovecraftianSuperpower related powers]]. One of them was Drekk whose power was to produce fire with his hands.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Being a dragon, Spike has fiery breath, and has used it a few times -- including melting a lock in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E23InspirationManifestation Inspiration Manifestation]]" and quickly melting a falling ice mass in ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E24EquestriaGames Equestria Games]]''. But it wasn't until the fourth season that he used his fire breath to do much more than send scrolls, and he doesn't have anything like a hot-blooded personality.
* Blossom's special power in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' is the ability to breathe fire and ice, although it tends to switch depending on the weather and her body temperature. (She doesn't use it much, though.)
* Ruby from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has this ability, while her companion [[AnIcePerson Sapphire uses ice.]]
* ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'':
** The Dinobots, are [[DinosaursAreDragons firebreathing dinosaurs]]. Appropriately enough, in several continuities they tend to be very ferocious and hot-blooded. In more recent series the actual fire breathing tends to apply specifically to [[BullyHunter Grimlock]] the robot Tyrannosaurus.
** Scourge from ''Anime/TransformersCybertron''. Japanese name: [[MeaningfulName Flame Convoy]]. His [[AmplifierArtifact Cyber]] [[NitroBoost Key]] deploys a pair of small dragon heads with mouth-mounted flamethrower.
** Inferno from ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', right down to being a fire ant.
%%** The Decepticon Firecons in ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'', especially the moronic pyromaniac Cindersaur and the even more moronic pyromaniac Flamefeather; Their supervisor, Sparkstalker, not so much, being a strategist at heart.
%%** This also extends to their counterparts in the Japanese continuity, the Sparkdash drones of ''Anime/TransformersSuperGodMasterforce''.
%%** There's also "Hothead" Blitzwing, Jetfire, and Hot Shot in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''.
%%* Torrid, the fiery archvillain of the Order of the Triad in ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' and a CaptainErsatz of Pyro.
* Bloom from ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' has fire-based powers that can manifest in the form of fire dragons, fireballs, fire beams, firestorms and explosions at varying intensities. Justified because she has the mythical Dragon Flame power.
* Taranee Cook from ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'', again. Like her comic book self, she is no hothead, instead being reserved and intelligent. Also, before she got her powers, she was ''afraid'' of fire.
