Anime: "The Ox King on Fire Mountain"
|Smaller Locations||Fire Cave|

A long time ago, the Ox-King had a wizard surrounding his castle with fire to keep intruders out, but the fire went out of control and even he was not able to get in. Oolong describes a common legend surrounding the mountain, saying: "Once upon a time it was 'Pleasant Mountain', and it lived up to the name, but about 10 years ago, a fire spirit fell from the heavens and transformed it into a mountain of eternal flame... So they say."
When Goku tries to go into the castle to find a Dragon Ball, he fails and the Ox-King gets angry at him and fights him. He eventually has Master Roshi come over by sending Goku and Chi-Chi. Master Roshi puts the fire out with the Kamehameha, but ends up destroying his castle and even the mountain. Afterwards, it is a small village ruled by the Ox-King. In the anime, the Pilaf Gang comes to the village to find a Dragon Ball, but the village is then attacked by the Red Ribbon Army.
Later on in an anime filler in the Piccolo Jr. Saga, once Goku and Chi-Chi get married and have their wedding at his castle, the fire starts back up and Goku and Chi-chi go on a quest to find the Bansho Fan to put it out. In conclusion, Goku fights the Furnace of Eight Divisions' guardian Annin to put the fire out and brings peace to the Ox-King's village again.
Fire Mountain is the main setting of Chapter 4 in Dragon Ball: Origins. In the bonus level 4-6, Goku meets Krillin near Fire Mountain after the 21st World Martial Arts Tournament, as Master Roshi asked Krillin to deliver something to the Ox-King, and the two have a sparring match there.
- Jade's Village in Dragon Ball: The Magic Begins is a live action adaption of the village on Fire Mountain.
