Fire! I have made fire! Or, rather, a caveman has made fire, and now you have it. I don't recommend putting it in your pocket, or under your ass, or shouting about it in a crowded theater. It'll probably come in handy for something, though, like blending in at a peasant convention.
(In-game plural: gouts of flame)

- Prior to March 1st, 2012, this item used to give the intrinsic effect Head on Fire, Ass Catching.
- The multi-use recipe for this was added on July 5, 2019.
- "I have made fire!" is a reference to the 2000 film, Cast Away.
- "Shouting about it in a crowded theater" refers to the phrase "shouting fire in a crowded theater", an example often used in debates about where, if anywhere, the limits of free speech should be.
- "Blending in at a peasant convention" refers to the Homestar Runner game Peasant's Quest, where the player must, in order to more closely resemble a peasant (to get past a guard), set his head on fire. This in turn is a reference to a cartoon about Trogdor, where peasants' heads are afire after their thatch-roofed cottages have been burninated.
- "Put a fire under my ass" is a common euphemism for an event that leaves someone highly motivated to accomplish a goal.
- "Never wear fire for a hat" was an expression supposedly seen on a bathroom wall by the character Maxine Gray, in the television series Judging Amy.
- Putting fire in your pocket may be a reference to the "Lawn Gnomes" short from an episode of Freakazoid!:
- Gnome: We stole man's fire, and tried to hide it in our pockets.
- Gnome Elder: That was painful and dumb.
- Putting a fire in your pocket would also quickly lead to it "burning a hole in your pocket", an expression also used for money someone can't resist spending.
- The effect name "Head on Fire, Ass Catching" is part of a lyric from the song "Uneasy Rider", sung by the Charlie Daniels Band.
