Flame is a horse first encountered in Season 4 of AMC's The Walking Dead. Flame is Michonne's horse.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Flame's life before or as the outbreak began.


Season 4

"30 Days Without An Accident"

Flame is first seen carrying Michonne on her back when she rides into the prison. Rick puts her in his fenced pen, giving her a kiss as he does so, perhaps showing that Rick has developed a bond with her.


Flame is seen with Michonne who is going out of the prison, but was soon stopped when she hears shots fired and she guides Flame back into the prison gates.

"Too Far Gone"

Though unseen, Flame is killed during the prison assault.


After the assault on the prison, Flame's corpse is seen laying in the field, disembowelled by walkers.


Flame is mentioned by Hershel while talking with Rick about how they can raise the domestic horses that are outside the prison.


Killed By

Though not initially shown, Flame was either killed by the horde of zombies after the attack on the prison, or was killed directly or indirectly by The Governor's militia.



Michonne is Flame's owner and she is frequently seen taking her out for trips and other miscellaneous activities. It is assumed Michonne has some bond with the horse as she chose to risk her life by getting off Flame and trying to close the gates behind the two of them instead of riding Flame to the gates and possibly getting her hurt. 

Rick Grimes

"Got to brush her down."
—Rick about Flame.[src]

Rick cares for the horse because she's not only an animal, their pet, but also because she provides fresh manure for their crops and Michonne takes her on supply missions and scouting missions to find The Governor. Rick takes care of the horse by kissing her on the head while telling Carl he needs to brush her down but gives the horse a hard pat on the head.


TV Series

  • Flame's name was revealed by Entertainment Weekly.[1]
  • Flame is portrayed by a male, despite her character being female (as Siggard's Family Horse and Nelly were both portrayed by Blade, a male horse).
