Firestarter is a vehicle that only appears in Twisted Metal III.
Vehicle: 1923 Ford T-Bucket / Firestarter
Driver: Damien Coles
Vehicle Type: Hot Rod
Special Weapon: 3/5
- Flamethrower: A giant flame thrower that scorches its victims to crispy-coated perfection.
- Firestarter is one of the vehicles who borrowed from Thumper's original flamethrower Special Weapon. The others include Drag Queen, Warthog (Black), Cousin Eddy, Kamikaze and Crimson Fury (2012).
- Other than a pure desire to add new vehicles, it is unknown why exactly Firestarter was added to TMIII's roster, considering Thumper was already included and Firestarter contained its original Special Weapon.
- Darkside's flamethrower in TMIII is very identical to Firestarter's, except the flames are larger and more damaging, and a Freeze Missile is simultaneously fired along with it.
- Firestarter shares the exact same vehicle stats (Armor, Special Weapon power, and handling) with Club Kid and Flower Power.
- Firestarter has the oldest vehicle model in the series.
