From Left: Endeavor, Natsu and Escanor

One of the most jaw-dropping powers in the anime-verse is the fire-based powers. Undoubtedly, as fascinating as the power is itself, so are its users. since the beginning, almost all the fire users have become the embodiment of passion and fieriness that the fire element symbolises. It’s hard not to fall in love with the power that they bring to the table and even harder to not fall in love with the characters themselves. Somehow, it always is that the fire users are designed to be as quirky as the element that they possess and hey, we are not complaining but the opposite of that, as this is something that only serves to make them so lovable.

As we have a lot of powerful fire users in the entirety of the anime world, one can’t help but wonder who would make the strongest fire user. Frey not, for we have prepared a list, just for you consisting of the ten best fire users in the history of anime.


A fire mage of the Fairy Tail series, Natsu Dragneel is not only one of the most powerful characters in the series itself but also amongst all anime characters that there are. A magical fire user, Natsu can generate fire from any part of his body. As a dragon slayer, he can emit fire from his lungs, can also consume it and is completely immune to any type of fire-based attacks like explosions and such. One of the things that make him really powerful is the fact that the temperature of his magical fire is directly connected to the power of his emotions. In the case of stronger emotions, Natsu’s fire temperature also increases which in turn ultimately makes his attack even deadlier. This is what the dragon slayer is capable of on a general level. Amongst more complicated abilities, he can even change the properties of his magical fire. Thus, all in all, without a doubt, Natsu Drangeel is one of the strongest fire bearers in the history of anime.


Next up on the list is Shinra Kusakabe, the pyrokinetic protagonist of the Fire Force series. As a third-generation pyrokinetic, Shinra can emit powerful flames from his feet. Due to the nature of his abilities, he uses his fire inducing powers to spew powerful explosions from his feet and effortlessly fly around whenever he wants to. As a possessor of the Adolla Burst, he is also in addition, the fourth pillar, which makes him all the stronger than he originally was. Shinra’s fire abilities are, thus nothing to scoff at. He is a fire user who is very difficult to compete against and thus especially deserves a place in this list.


One of the major antagonists of Boku No Hero Academia, Dabi is a force to be reckoned with. There are only a few fires users in the anime series and as such he is deemed to have the most powerful flames. His quirk known as Cremation grants him the power to emit large scale flame attacks. The temperature of his flames that are already very high can become even higher when he experiences stronger emotions. Dabi’s fire is so devastating that technically speaking it is more powerful than that of Endeavour, the No.1 hero. However, the only downside of Cremation is he himself is not completely immune to the flames and hence will get burns when used for a longer duration of time.


Next, we have the No.1 hero of the Boku No Hero Academia series. Flame Hero: Endeavor, whose real name is Enjii Todoroki is one of the most powerful characters in the entire series. His quirk known as Hellflame grants him the power to generate and manipulate large and powerful amounts of flames. He is also resistant to any other external fire and can also change the temperature of his flames according to his will. Due to his hard work and dedication, he has achieved a level of skill due to which he can use his flames in the most unique ways. Some of these unique abilities include using his flames to temporarily be airborne and to also change the properties and shape of his fire into solid weapons.


One of the central protagonists of the Yu Yu Hakusho anime series, Hiei remains to be one of the strongest characters of the series till the end. As a fire demon, at his most basic level, Hiei is immune to most of the fire-based attacks and can also emit projectiles of fire from his hands. In his most advanced level, Hiei is able to use his demonic aura to call forth the flames of hell itself. He then uses this demonic fire to transform it into a huge dragon capable of bringing devastating catastrophe. This ominous and evil fire, completely black in colour burns everything in its way and chars them into nothingness. This technique is so powerful that Hiei is the only demon to master this legendary technique in centuries throughout the series.

Roy Mustang

Flame Alchemist of the Fullmetal Alchemist series, Roy Mustang definitely deserves to be on the list of the most powerful fire users. Roy can emit powerful bursts of flames from his hands' thanks to the ignition gloves that he wears. With these special gloves, he can spout fire with a snap of his fingers. The flames produced by the gloves can be controlled and manipulated at will with the help of the Transmutation Circles. Roy is known to produce fire of different degrees and efficiency from both his hands. While his right hands produce powerful explosions, his left hand produces more localized, accurate and concentrated attacks. Later on in the series, Roy becomes so skilled that he is able to use flame alchemy without the use of Trasmutaion Circles.


The man bearing the title of the Strongest Holy Knight, Escanor of the Seven Deadly Sins series is the one to next make it on the list. As the strongest member of the Seven Deadly Sins, Escanor is the mightiest character in the series. His ability known as Sunshine literally gives him the power of the sun. During the day, he embodies the power of the sun and thus at noon, is at his strongest point. However, during the night, his entire being starting from his emotions to his physic, to his personality become the complete opposite. As the sun sets, Escanor starts losing the power of the sun and becomes so weak that he can’t even compete against an average human. During the daytime, however, he is so strong, that his mere presence alone can melt almost everything around him.

Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto, the oldest shinigami in the Bleach verse, was also one of the most skilled and powerful characters in the series. His zanpakuto was the most powerful fire-based zanpakuto amongst all. When his blade is released, it becomes entirely covered in powerful flames. Anything that this sword even closely comes into contact with, instantly catch fire. The entire environment, starting from the grounds to the sky become consumed by a hellish firestorm. Anyone trapped in this blazing prism of fire, hardly escape almost always meets the fate of turning into ash.

Madara Uchiha

Amongst the most powerful characters of the entire Naruto series, Madara of the Uchiha clans deserves a place on this list. As a descendent of the Uchiha clan, Madara had a natural affinity for using fire. He was skilled enough to use all elements of nature transformations, amongst which he could easily use fire. He had the capability to produce extremely strong bursts of flames, transform his flames into the shape of dragons and launch a multitude of them at his opponents. This is a general overview of all that Madara was capable of with his flames, which is a testament to the fact that he is a very powerful fire user.


Last but not the least, we have Mereoleona Vermillion of the Black Clover series. A fire magic user in the series, Mareoleona is as fiery as the power she possesses. She is so powerful that during a brawl with her brother, her fire burned down half of the estate. In short, Mereoleona has the magical affinity to emit and manipulate fire at will. As the temporary leader of the Crimson Lion’s, she usually manipulates her fire emissions to resemble the paw of a lion. In addition, her body is also resistant to fire as she can even withstand being covered in lava without sustaining any injuries.
