In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

Blast Burn inflicts damage and thaws any frozen enemies. If the move hits at least one target successfully, the user is inflicted with the recoil status condition (Paused prior to Gates to Infinity) for 1 turn. This status prevents the user from taking any actions. This move is affected by the Muzzled status condition (prior to Gates to Infinity).

Since Blast Burn is exclusively a tutor move in main series, it is taught differently in Mystery Dungeon:

Super Smash Bros. series

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U, Blast Burn is a custom variant of Charizard's Flare Blitz. When used, Charizard will briefly charge up before rushing at the opponent. When the move makes contact, it creates an explosion that sends the opponent flying, and Charizard takes recoil damage. Compared to Flare Blitz, Blast Burn is much more powerful, but the recoil damage is higher and the move travels slowly for a short distance.

Pokémon Method
User First Used In Notes
  Mega Charizard X's body becomes engulfed in light blue flames. It then punches the ground, sending a wave of energy into the earth which then moves underneath the opponent. The energy then bursts upwards in a giant explosion of red-orange flames. Sometimes, its body does not become surrounded by flames prior to punching the ground.
Alain's Charizard Mega Evolution Special I Debut
  Incineroar forms a big ball of red-orange fire in front of its fire belt, and then launches a giant red-orange flame from it at the opponent. After using the move, smoke comes out from Incineroar's belt, and it is unable to move for a short time.
