Almost every action anime comes with a wide range of abilities that are often related to elemental powers. Be it Lightning, Water, Ice, or even Dark energy, each power has the upper hand against one or more of them. Likewise, characters with fire elements as their weapon tend to be one of the strongest forces in an anime.
Although there are oceans of anime characters who are regarded as powerful fire users, here is a list of 10 characters who are more proficient with their firepower than the rest.
