"Fireball" is just a classic fantasy spell. Whether it's an archetypal wizard casting it in a movie, you're rolling dice to do so in a tabletop RPG, spending mana to light your enemies ablaze in a video game, or if it's reminiscient of Luna's early spellcasting, "fireball" is just one of those old standbys that you can just rely on for old-school fantasy magic goodness.

Rock on, and have a nice weekend!
