"Back when the God of Earth still had an inkling of where he might find a shred of good sense, he sent me a tribe of Earthflings. Payment for favors I had done for him. Flame Minions are the result. They are quick on their feet and can shoot little fireballs out of their mouths. They’re very good at taking down enemy flying creatures, and they can give themselves a temporary speed boost to escape more powerful enemies. Not that I approve of that kind of thing." – The Manual, The Book of Pyro

Flame Minion is Pyro's level 1 creature.

Creature Information[]


"Flame minions do love fire! Although they may not have the range of some other creatures, they are still good at burning up flyers, and if they get caught in a "hot" situation, they can speed themselves up to get out of it." – Zyzyx, The Gods Themselves (Pyro)

The creature is obtained along with Cog, Spitfire and Fireball and in campaign is received in Pyro's first mission. It shares its unit model with Earthfling and Fallen.

Name Etymology[]

The Flame Minion's name is probably a pun on Filet Mignon, which a cut of a meat. This is referenced by the units dialogue, especially the line "How do you like your steak?". Despite being called a "Minion", Flame Minions are in no way associated with Charnel's Minions. In pre-release time Flame Minion's name was Klappon.


Flame Minions are a sub-species of the Earthflings, only servile to Pyro. James traded a tribe of his followers with Pyro for the island of Karn. Karn would later become one of the Glebe's foremost strongholds and those Earthflings would become the Flame Minions.

Since they have no specified home, they are presumed to be spread out all over Pyroborea.
