Fire is one of the basic elemental attributes found in Castlevania, and one of the three main elements. In Symphony of the Night and the games that followed it, fire is strong against ice element enemies. Many enemies in the castle are weak to fire.
Most living creatures and some undead creatures, (eg. zombies and skeletons) are weak to fire. Since this makes up a large portion of the castle's inhabitants, fire based weapons are valuable in combat. Enemies that resist fire are flame-based creatures and magic users. Lasers and energy beams are fire-attributed. A fun-fact is that in Portrait of Ruin, if you kill zombies, wights, ghouls, or ghoul kings with fire damage, they die, but they turn into skeletons and will continue to attack until killed.
