The Firey is a Clow Card with the power to control and manipulate fire. It is one of the four elemental cards, and as such it is one of the most powerful cards.

It is also one of the original nineteen cards from the manga series.


The Firey resembles an adolescent, male angel, with bright orange wings, and long elf-like ears. Like The Windy, he appears to be naked, only wearing a red, bejeweled circlet; his lower half is usually obscured by a column of fire.

As a Sakura Card in the manga, the jewel on his circlet turns into a flaming ember with a matching collar, armlets, and star earrings.

In the Clear Card Arc, under Syaoran's command, his star earrings are replaced by crescent moons, while crescent moons adorn his armlets.

The Firey displays an arrogant and proud nature

Firey appears to have an aggressive and somewhat arrogant nature; he seemed to enjoy toying with Sakura prior to his capture.

He is no more powerful than the other elemental cards, but is warned to be used with caution. Cerberus warned Sakura that if she used him without care, he would do as asked, but he could harm his user.

Moreover, due to the trickster side of The Firey, he has a tendency to backfire, scare, and/or even harm others while still technically doing as his master commands.

Despite his normally violent temper, The Firey, as with the other cards, is shown to care for his master.

Magic and Abilities[]

Fire Magic: Firey can create powerful fires from thin air, as well as manipulate any existing flames. He is also shown to be able to regulate temperatures to high levels, as he used to defeat Snow.

Fortune Telling: All Clow Cards have the ability to help their user predict the future. His method of fortune-telling is similar to that of tarot cards. The interpretation of the message the Clow Cards relay depends on the magical power of the user.


Clow Cards arc[]

The Firey first appeared in Episode 35, causing fire in an amusement park. Sakura used two cards to defeat his: The Windy and The Watery. Sakura first tried to use The Windy, but The Firey ended up getting bigger because wind is also equal to oxygen. Then, she tried to use The Watery, but in the manga, The Watery would just be sucked up and not come back. It is stated in the anime that The Firey and The Watery's power are even so that a fight between the two would be futile. In order to stop The Firey, Sakura combines The Windy and The Watery to double the force and easily defeat him, allowing Sakura to turn him back into a card.[1]

In the sixth volume of the manga series, The Firey appeared in a street. Mizuki Sensei, Syaoran and Yukito stayed with Sakura, so Syaoran knocked Yukito out. Sakura uses two elementary cards at once (The Windy and The Watery) and finally, Kerberos returned to his true form.

Firey was later used in the anime to defeat The Snow card, melting the tons of snow she had submerged the town under. He melted the snow with such heat it completely evaporated and drove the physical form of The Snow card toward Sakura to seal it.[2]

Sakura Cards arc[]

Sakura transforms The Firey into a Sakura Card in Episode 48 of the anime/Volume 7 (Chapter 29) of the manga to save herself and (in the anime) her friends from being drowned by a cyclone. He is the first card to be transformed into a Sakura Card.

To try and prevent an avalanche, Sakura attempts to use The Firey to melt the rushing snow, but she does not have enough power and fails after previously spending almost all her energy transforming The Time card.[3]

Clear Cards arc[]

The Firey, like the other Sakura Cards, turned "clear" (blank) and are rendered powerless.

It is later revealed that the Cards were with Syaoran in order to protect Sakura magical powers had grown enormously and that this could be detrimental to her. With the collaboration of the cards, who also wish to protect Sakura, Syaoran is able to rewrite the contract of the cards, replacing Sakura’s name on them with his name and allowing him to utilize their powers, which essentially makes him the new master of the cards.

When the Cards pass under Syaoran's possession, they receive his Moon powers and appeared the Crescent Moon symbol in their forms. The cards moved by their love for Sakura and their desire to protect her. Left with Syaoran through a spell arranged by his mother to prevent Sakura's powers from growing further while creating the Clear Cards; but doing so is extremely exhausting for him and takes longer than desired. However, when the world is rewritten by a taboo magic, the cards return to Sakura's possession as if they had never left.

In Episode 12 of the anime, Syaoran discreetly uses The Firey to attack the Hail card, since Sakura did not have any fire-based Card.

Firey appears along with the other Cards at Syaoran's house explaining to Cerberus and Yue the reasons for their departure. Later they all appear in front of Sakura to explain that they wanted to help Syaoran protect her.
