PK Fire is a PSI attack, introduced in EarthBound Beginnings. It has a variety of effects between games, but the most common effect is hitting multiple enemies for fire-based damage. PK Fire is learned by Ana in EarthBound Beginnings, Paula in EarthBound, and Kumatora in Mother 3.
PK Fire is a fire-based PSI attack that the user summons from their fingers. Damage output depends on the enemy as enemies associated with ice are more vulnerable to the attack, additionally characters with the H2o Pendant (in EarthBound Beginnings) or the Flame Pendant (in EarthBound) equipped will be more resistant to it.
PK Fire of all tiers is a multi-target PSI attack. In EarthBound Beginnings and Mother 3 PK Fire targets all opponents on screen. In EarthBound the targeting is slightly different, instead it only targets all enemies in a selected row.in EarthBound Beginnings only Ω one-hit KOs all opponents on screen, including ones that are unnaffected by PK Beam γ. PK Fire can also cause secondary effects: In EarthBound and Mother 3 it has the possibility of decreasing one of the targets' PSI Shield strength by 1, and in Mother 3 only it can setting the target on fire, causing them to gradually take damage every turn.
Lloyd's explosives in EarthBound Beginnings all share the effects of each PK Fire tier: Bottle Rockets are α, Bombs are β, Flamethrowers (the only reusable one unlike the others) are γ, and Super Bombs are Ω, though Super Bombs inflict recoil damage on Lloyd unlike PK Fire Ω.
In EarthBound Beginnings the explosion caused when certain enemies are defeated are also equal to PK Fire.
