Fire or flame is among the most clichéd superpowers in anime. Though no one can deny how dangerous, destructive, and mesmerizing a fire can be. That might be the reason why flame manipulation is among the most popular abilities seen in the anime. From the different genres of anime as long as it involves special powers or abilities, people can always find a certain character that can freely control and manipulate fire at his/her own will.
Let’s face it, fire is f**kin’ cool power to have and one can always expect that there’s always someone who can use fire in every anime even if they’re just a supporting character. Somehow, we can’t blame the creator for having a character with firepower since as a major element; flame can be used in so many ways, not only for fighting. Although, not uncommon; flame users in anime always have this enigmatic and overwhelming presence.
As a tribute to all of those badass flame manipulators out there in the anime, we, in the Yu Alexius team decided to write this post about the Top 15 most badass flame users from different anime series. Let’s set our mood ablaze and breathe some fire as you scroll down this list.

Roy Mustang (Full Metal Alchemist & FMA: Brotherhood)
A fine, bold, and seriously badass type of flame user. Roy Mustang is one of the most remarkable characters from the Full Metal Alchemist franchise. He’s quite the arrogant type but that behavior is supported by how strong and badass he can be when it comes to fighting.
Uchiha Clan [Itachi, Sasuke, Madara, etc.] (Naruto Shippuden)
The Uchiha Clan is the epitome of a genius clan in the Naruto franchise. I think it is safe to assume that they can be compared to the Slytherin faction of Hogwarts from the Harry Potter franchise. Most of the Uchiha members are fire users, though there are some members that are truly gifted like Itachi, Sasuke, and Madara. With their Sharingan eyes, they can burn any opponent using the “Amaterasu,” a technique that envelops and burns their target with black flames and only stopped when the opponent is dead.
Tsunayoshi Sawada (Katekyo Hitman Reborn)
Tsuna is the type of guy that seems clueless and weak from the outside. Well, he started as a weakling after all; but his progress is undeniably great that he ended up as an insurmountable figure in the fights of the mafia with superhuman abilities.
Hanabishi Recca (Flame of Recca)
Hanabishi Recca is your typical protagonist from the ’90s. He is a ninja who can summon eight dragons and each of these dragons have unique special powers that help Recca surpass his endeavors in order to save his beloved girl.
Rin Okumura (Ao no Exorcist)
Satan incarnates himself and sits next in our list from the beloved supernatural anime series Blue Exorcist.
Mikoto Suoh (K)
Mikoto is the Third as well as the Red King. He has the power to emit fire and with his hot-tempered nature, he became known as the King of Destruction. He, alone and his nature can be called the epitome of the term, “badass.”
