This character in this print had been incorrectly ascribed to the role of Fudō Myōō. We have changed it to Nurakami Shōnin, who is often portrayed with flames on his robes. We have added several links above to examples at the British Museum, the Metropolitan Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Hankyu Cultural Foundation..
