Fire or flame is among the most clichéd super powers 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 different genre 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 fuckin’ cool power to have and one can always expect that there’s always someone who can use fire in every anime even they’re just a supporting character. Somehow, we can’t blame the creator for having character with firepower since as a major element; flame can be use in so many ways, not only for fighting. Although, not uncommon; flame users in anime always have this enigmatic and overwhelming presence.
