The BMW Lighter is a handheld naphtha-type fire starter. It prominently displays the logo of BMW, an abbreviation of “Bayerische Motoren Werke” (Bavarian Motor Works), a German company and manufacturer of automobiles and motorcycles. When the lighter was first introduced on Homestar Runner, a "real world" BMW lighter was unavailable as The Brothers Chaps attest to on the DVD commentary for "dragon." There are now several styles of BMW lighter available.

The BMW Lighter has appeared in seven toons, and one DVD featurette.

The first time the lighter is seen is in guitar, in which Strong Bad holds it up at the end. As an Easter egg, watch it scorch The Paper!
