Fire Aspect is a sword enchantment that sets the target on fire.


Fire Aspect adds 80 fire-ticks (4 seconds of burning) per level to the target. Because the first hit is caused by the item with this enchantment, the first second of fire damage is not recognized. Targets receive 3♥♥ and 7♥♥♥♥ damage with level I and II respectively.

Formula to calculate the fire damage: fire damage in 1♥ = (level × 4) – 1.

When a mob that normally drops meat is killed while burning, it drops cooked meat. Experience is dropped only if non-fire damage was dealt by the player within 5 seconds of the death.

In Bedrock Edition, an item enchanted with Fire Aspect can also be used to light unlit campfires. If a Block of TNT is clicked with an item that has fire aspect, it will cause the Block of TNT to light up.

Immune mobs[edit]

Both Fire Aspect and Flame are nullified on all Nether exclusive mobs due to fire and lava immunity. Normal skeletons and endermen are not immune even in the Nether.
