Fire Eggs are one of the five types of eggs which Kazooie uses for ammunition in Banjo-Tooie. Jamjars teaches her how to use them on the Plateau just outside the entrance to Glitter Gulch Mine. They can be found in nests which shift between different egg types and can be used by tapping to select them from the egg line-up.
Fire Eggs deal more damage than normal Blue Eggs and will set enemies aflame when they hit, but Kazooie can only fire two at a time and can initially hold a maximum of 50 (100 if used the EGGS cheatcode in code chamber in Mayahem Temple). Burning enemies will panic and run around but will not suffer any extra damage. Fire Eggs are useful in activating certain switches, such as the one which activates the door leading from the Plateau to the Pine Grove, and they can also be used to melt blocks of ice, light up dark areas, or defeat certain enemies quickly (such as Bang Boxes and Biggyfoots). Interestingly, they will still burn when fired underwater.
When Kazooie transforms into Dragon Kazooie, she has access to an infinite amount of Fire Eggs.

Fire Eggs can also be obtained in the GBA game Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge. With a slightly different firing mode, constant Breegull Blaster mode, Fire Eggs still act the same as they did in Tooie. They don't activate that many switches (Battery Eggs were introduces), but they are needed to destroy certain enemies, such as in the final boss fight (Green Spookos can only be killed by them). They are learned from Bozzeye.
Fire Eggs also act as an offensive Item in Banjo-Pilot. Unlike the standard gun, Fire Eggs (obtained in singles and triples) home in on enemies and make them crash. They rearely miss, unless your opponent is a master at barrel rolls. They are extremely helpful in Dogfight battles.
