What does the Kanji next to the bar at the bottom right hand side of the screen mean in this video? (The small bar, not the larger one): http://youtu.be/qIKNRmdEx5E?t=20s - The bar that it's next to is a curse (or fever) meter, though I had looked up both of these words previously and this kanji didn't ever seem to appear. If it helps, for context, here's a link to the character's wiki page: http://www.dustloop.com/wiki/index.php?title=Arakune_(BBCP)

"Fire", "folding chair" and "mouth" is 「烙」.

Interesting. Thanks :) Had been wondering for a while now. –  Andy Brito Oct 5 '13 at 22:55
    
I suppose it's probably obvious, but 夂 doesn't really signify folding chair. Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams is using that label as a part of a mnemonic, it seems. –  snailboat Oct 6 '13 at 5:30
    
@snailboat: Not an unpopular mnemonic; many sites, Wikipedia and Denshi Jisho included, call radical 66 that or something similar. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 6 '13 at 5:36
    
Oh, the reason I couldn't find "folding chair" anywhere is I looked up radical 34, not 66. It's actually graphically the same as 夂 (radical 34 winter), not 攵 (radical 66 hit, strike). –  snailboat Oct 7 '13 at 22:41
    
So it is, so it is... –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 7 '13 at 23:43
