A Fire Plant is meant to resemble a large flower. Its base is black and is surrounded by four red leaves, while its stem is light green. Its hexagonal face is black with yellow border. Its mouth is jagged and its eyes are glowing yellow. Its face is decorated by four orange flower petals with red edges. A bright yellow band divides the upper and lower body of this Heartless. The Heartless emblem is emblazoned on the lower half of its body.
The Fire Plant's name reflects its ability to conjure fire, as well as its flower-like appearance. It also refers to a species of plant sometimes called a fireplant.
Fire Plants are easily defeated, as they remain stationary and have little HP. They do, however, shoot bouncing orbs of fire from their maw, which may cause the Ignited status effect if they make contact with the player. These fireballs can be avoided through the use of Dodge Roll, and a chain of aerial combos can quickly deplete a Fire Plant's short HP bar.
But the player should be careful of these Heartless' only physical attack, one that involves it slamming its head against the ground directly in front of it several times. This particular attack is best avoided with Glide or Dodge Roll. Blizzard magic is also highly recommended as a means of quickly eliminating a Fire Plant.
