An Ignition Ability (発火能力, Hakka Nōryoku) is an ability granted to Second Generation and Third Generation pyrokinetics.


An Ignition Ability is the unique way in which a pyrokinetic uses their ability to manipulate flames. Even though the principle of generating fire is kept the same, each pyrokinetic utilizes their flames in a certain way; such as by generating flames from certain body parts, such as their shoulders or feet, utilizing their flames in conjunction with a certain type of object, and/or utilize if special variants of fire, such as electricity, plasma, or explosions, among other variants of fire manipulation.

While pyrokinetics are immune to being burned, they still feel heat.[1] The firepower generated can be intertwined with the physiological state of the user, as Arthur Boyle relies on himself looking like a knight in order to maximize his generated power.[2]


Ignition Abilities have their restrictions on the length and intensity of their use, also known as Ignition Limit (発火限界, Hakka Genkai). Once the individual has used up a considerable amount of the oxygen within their body, which is what fuels their flames, they cannot use their Ignition Abilities until they've regathered more.[3]

When one has overexerted their Ignition Ability, it will cause them to Overheat (発火限界オーバーヒート/発火限界, Ōbāhīto) leaving them out of breath, and potentially burning their own bodies and inflicting them with severe dehydration.[4] Additionally, when a Third Generation user overuses their ability, their bodies begin to char due to the lack of oxygen. This is a type of disease called Tephrosis (灰病, Haibyō).[5] Victims of Tephrosis are severely weakened in their ability to use their Ignition Abilities as it leaves them in intense pain.
