In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

Overheat damages all enemy Pokémon within one tile of the user and lowers the user's Special Attack. In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, Overheat's description erroneously states that it lowers the user's Special Defense instead of Special Attack. This error is not present in the TM description of Overheat.

Description

Games Description
MDRB Damages all foes around the user, but also lowers the user's Special Defense by two levels and thaws frozen Pokémon.

Pokkén Tournament

Overheat appears as one of Chandelure's Pokémon moves. Chandelure glows red and charges up, gaining armor against a variety of attacks until it releases a fiery tornado. After the attack, Chandelure falls over and has its Attack and Speed lowered, referencing the Special Attack reduction of the original move. If used again with lowered stats, it deals significantly less damage, while when used in a positive state, it deals significantly more damage while also removing the buffs Chandelure had.
