"Sorry! This train is only for the dead...but we can help you with that."
—Blaze Brothers, Death screen
Personality: Not much is known about the Blaze Brothers, but it is shown that neither one is even slightly concerned after their brother has been defeated.
The Blaze Brothers' only form of attack is to rain lightning on the players, forcing them to move to the left or the right depending on which brother is attacking. More specifically, the cart needs to move all the way to the other side and, even with that, the players need to be near the edge of the screen to avoid this attack. They give some time to react to the incoming attack, but not a whole lot.
All the while, ghosts will fly out of the middle train car. When destroyed, they drop a pink skull that can make the cart the player is standing on move.
After defeating the Blaze Brothers, the battle then goes to the Head of the Train (unless you're playing in simple mode, then the battle just ends with the Brothers melting).
- The faces of the Blaze Brothers look like one of the ghostly heads popping out of the walking house in the 1930 cartoon "Swing You Sinners".
- Their name is not canon, as none of the characters on the Phantom Express are named.
- Their Lightning attack appears to be an anachronistic reference to electricity-based Power sources in general and the Blaze Brothers are anthropomorphized pistons.
- The Blaze Brothers with their long necks may have been based on the long neck yokai such as Mikoshi Nyudo and Rokurokubi.
