Introduced in set:
Many Fire Bird evolution creatures feature "Bird of Fire" as a suffix.
Each of the other civilizations also feature some mono-civilization Fire Birds.
Both Armored Dragon's and Fire Birds have many effects to complement each other in battle.
There are a few archetypes of Fire Birds introduced to the game. The first is a group of Fire Birds that feature Lupia in their name. Many of these Lupia creatures focus on supporting either Dragon or "NEX" creatures. Another set of Fire Birds introduced during the Awakening Saga feature "Aini" in their name, these creatures focus on "Double Cross" (Chai Aini) and Psychic Creatures (Shobu Aini and Reppi Aini). The third group of Fire Birds is the Pippi series who are introduced throughout Episode 1 of the DMR Series, usually supporting the Hunter race with few of them are even featured as Psychic cells of Hunter Psychic Super Creatures.
Fire Birds are cute small birds that make their nests around the mouth of volcanoes. Easily identified by the fire at the tip of their tails, they coexist with Dragons (similar to Oxpeckers). Fire Birds move quickly and are very curious and likable. Unlike other Fire creatures, they are not an aggressive race. However, if their nest is attacked, they fight back hard risking their lives. Not surprisingly, Fire Birds have a short life expectancy. When they sense their end is near, they dive into the mouth of a volcano. One out of a thousand Fire Birds comes back alive after the dive.
