First appearanceMonstrous Compendium Fiend Folio Appendix (1992)

In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the fyrefly is an insect-like creature from the Elemental Plane of Fire.

Publication history[edit | edit source]

The fyrefly appeared in the Monstrous Compendium Fiend Folio Appendix (1992),[1] and briefly in the Monstrous Manual (1993) under the "insect" entry.

Description[edit | edit source]

A fyrefly resembles a large dragonfly, only completely made out of fire.

Fyreflies are commonplace on the Elemental Plane, but often emerge into the Material Plane in fiery, volcanic caves. Fyreflies attack by landing on what they want to attack and spontaneously combusting, causing instant fire damage. This is rarely damaging when only a single fyrefly does it, but one angered fyrefly typically annoys the whole swarm it belongs to (they are nearly always found in swarms), and then they all come and do it, and then the effects can become cataclysmic. They are usually peaceful, however.

Fyreflyes cannot speak, and they are neutral in alignment.
