Formerly a formula racer who competes in a formula race track, but he hasn't returned because he was nearly incinerated when he was involved in a terrible car accident. Luckily, he made a total recovery with the ability to manipulate fire. In the end of the first game, Heat manages to defeat Robo-Z and was ultimately destroyed after being engulfed in explosions. However, Heat saw a white light comes from Robo-Z's body (possibly the Groovetron) directly hits him and he was seen standing up in a weaken state and happily smirks after being hit.
In the sequel, his story was retold by James Suneoka, the host of Dancing Heroes during his epilogue of Bust of Move 2 where Heat is seen competing against formula racers in the formula race track grand prix which he overtakes them within 33 laps and clears the last turn of his racing car to make it in the finish line. However, Heat's car went out of control as it crashed into the wall and bursts into flames and it also incinerates the race track as well. Heat was later taken to the hospital with a serious of third degree burns who is barely alive after the crash. One week later, Heat miraculously recovers from his serious burns and injuries and was finally out of the hospital.
