The Fire Master (ファイアマスター) is one of Dark Gaia's minions that appears in the night stages of Sonic Unleashed.


This enemy is akin to the Dark Master, but it has a different colouration, that differs by version: in the Wii/PS2 version of the game, they are red with cyan glowing markings, while in the X-Box/PS3 version they are blue with orange markings.

In the X-Box/PS3 version, the Fire Master launches a fireball towards the player, inflicting a good deal of damage, the player catching on fire, and dropping whatever item the player may be holding as a result. To dispatch of this enemy, the player must throw a barrel of water at it, ridding it of the flame, then focus their attacks on the Fire Master. Alternatively, if in Unleashed Mode, the player can just go ahead and attack it, as they'll take no damage.

In the Wii/PS2 version, they will use a different attack in which they dash into Sonic. They also possess a different appearence then their X-Box/PS3 counterparts, being red with blue markings. Additionally, touching them while they're cloaked in fire in this version will simply hurt the player and not set them on fire. Also, you can't hurt them in Unleashed Mode either.


Monsters born of Dark Gaia with exceptionally high intelligence can take on a humanoid appearance like these fiends.

These pyromancers are wreathed in a steady blaze that makes head-on attacks dangerous. Douse them with a water barrel, then go in for the beatdown.

These wizards are easily recognized for their pointy red hats.

Fire Masters are bathed in flame, Lightning Masters freely wield bolts of electricity, but use those traits against them with a little water, and they'll be all washed up!
