Super Mario seriesIn Super Mario World (albeit in a different shape) and New Super Mario Bros., when used against nearly any foe, they turn to coins.
In Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2, it not only allows the player to damage enemies with fireballs, but also light torches and break wooden crates. Launching a fireball is triggered by shaking the Wii Remote. Super Mario Galaxy also introduced a counterpart to the Fire Flower: the Ice Flower. Super Mario Galaxy is also the first game to feature a 3D Fire Flower.
In the Paper Mario series, Mario can use Fire Flowers to damage his enemies.
In Paper Mario, Mario can use Fire Flowers to deal three points of damage to each foe he is currently facing. Fire Flowers are also used in several recipes.

With its use, Mario dons his infamous fire suit and hurls fireballs at all enemies causing damage (except to flying enemies). There are also Shiny and Flashy Fire Flowers. Note that using Fire Flower stickers on fire-based enemies will only heal them. Fire Flower stickers also have no effect to strong shelled-enemies.
