If you want to part with something,
Then you must incinerate it.
If you never want to see it again,
Let it swim in gasoline!
"Ignusss wishesss to BURN..."'
— Ignus, Planescape: Torment
The craving to ignite, reflects a glowing light
The fire in his eyes is bearing no disguise
Armed with an evil grin, that sparks the flame within
The pyromaniac will burn this town, ignoring all costs
— Whiplash, "The Burning of Atlanta"
"BURN! BURN! BURN TO THE GROUND!"
— Flame Hyenard, Mega Man X7
"You're nothing but a frustrated firework artist turned homicidal pyromaniac!"
— Sly to Panda King, Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus
"Things are so much prettier when they burn."
— Willow, Don't Starve
Know that it would be untrue
Know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
I didn't set your house on fire
But it's just the way I am
Have to take it for a fact
Life can really burn you up
When you're a pyromaniac
— The Dead Milkmen, "If You Love Somebody, Set Them On Fire"
"Preacher likes to set fire to churches, that's his trip. Unfortunately, he does it when there are people inside."
— Frank Hawkes, Alone in the Dark (1982)
