Trivia

  • In Generation I, Fire Blast was the only Fire-type move that could be taught by TM.
  • Its animation is based on the Daimonji of the Japanese festival Gozan no Okuribi, where a large bonfire is lit in the shape of the character 大 (meaning "big" or "great").
  • A glitch sometimes occurs with this move in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 where the background fails to appear, instead showing just black.
