NAME ORIGIN
    A blaze is a bright and intense flame or fire. This word comes from the Middle English word blæse.
    In the original NES release, these were all seperately named attacks (Cremate, Heat, Inferno and Scorch).
    Cremation is a type of funeral rite, where the body of the deceased is burned to ashes. The word comes from the Latin word cremare, meaning "to burn to ashes".
    Heat is a word used to describe the warmth given off from fire or light. This word comes from the Old English word hætu, meaning "hot".
    The word inferno refers to Hell, the place of eternal damnation in Christian theology, or to other dangerously hot places. This word comes from the Latin word infernus, meaning "Hell".
    To scorch something is to slightly burn, affecting the color, taste, etc. of an object. The word comes from the Old Norse word skorpna meaning "to shrink, to be shriveled".
