She was born to set things on fire, and it has become a hobby of hers.
— Flavor quote of Ifrit, Arknights

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!

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

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

Get the kids and bring a sweater. Dry is good and wind is better
Count the years, you always knew it. Strike a match, go on and do it
Oh days go by I'm hypnotized. I'm walking on a wire.
I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
Into the fire
Oh light the sky and hold on tight. The world is burning down
She's out there on her own and she's alright
Sunny came home
Shawn Colvin, "Sunny Came Home"

I remember Sam
He was the village idiot
And though it seems a pity, it
Was so
He loved to burn down houses just to watch the glow
And nothing could be done
Because he was the mayor's son

When I was a child, I'd sit for hours
Staring into open flame
Something in it had a power
Could barely tear my eyes away

You might say that she's got a problem
Well get in the way and you see how she solves 'em
She's like Picasso with the gasoline
A born fire starter if you know what I mean!
I Fight Dragons, "Burnadette"

You'd think by now
that I would've learned
not to play with fire
if I don't wanna get burned but
I'm a pyromaniac
and your veins are full of gas;
you're burning higher, higher.
I'm storming this wildfire!
— Circus-P and Crusher-P, "Wildfire"
