Fires (also generically fireballs and firefoxes) are enemies that exclusively appear in the 100 m level of Donkey Kong. In most versions, they are depicted as a slightly larger variant of the Fireball enemy that appears in other levels.
Donkey Kong franchise
Fires make their first appearance in the original Donkey Kong as enemies. They exclusively appear in 100 m, and as they are slightly larger than the Fireball enemies that appear in other levels, they are more difficult to jump over. Fires can climb ladders, no matter if they are broken or fixed, but cannot reverse directions during the climb. If Mario jumps over a Fire, he receives points, but the only way to destroy them is with a hammer. Picking up a hammer causes the Fires to turn blue. There can only be five or less Fires on the screen at the same time in the arcade version; that number was lowered to four in the Nintendo Entertainment System port of the game.
