Hellfire is a supernatural flame which sears the soul and burns the flesh of an individual. It is a power wielded by the Ghost Rider and various other supernatural entities like the Witch Woman.

Hellfire has been described as both cold and hot, depending on its use. The various Ghost Riders seem to be able to control and create normal fire and a type of mystical fire, yet they call both types hellfire at various times, and at other times they make a clear distinction between the two types of fire.

- Burns the soul, causing the victim to experience all of his/her sins and to feel the torments of hell.

- Burns underwater. [2]

- Possibly feeds off oxygen (this might be normal fire). [3]
