Not to be confused with the similarly named power in Bejeweled Stars.

Blazing Steed is a standard type of Rare Gem in Bejeweled Blitz. It is a red, glowing lump of "fire" obsidian with part of it carved in the shape of a horse.

When a game begins, a Blazing Speed bonus that lasts for 10 seconds is given. Throughout the game, explosions from clearing Flame Gems and gems during Blazing Speed bonuses are larger in which they remove all nearby gems in a diagonal 5×5 pattern.

After the Last Hurrah, three fiery horses stampede across the lower three rows of the game board. The horses transform eight basic gems into Flame Gems that clear themselves afterward.

It is possible to earn Blazing Steed by participating in the Daily Spin five times a week. In the Facebook version of Bejeweled Blitz or the official Facebook page, it is also possible to earn Blazing Steed by fulfilling certain Key Stones or by clicking on the link to earn.


  • The name of this Rare Gem is a pun on "blazing speed" and steed".
  • While Blazing Steed is in effect, "The Voice" will say "Blazing Steed!" instead of "Blazing Speed!" upon achieving a Blazing Speed bonus. However, the game still uses the pop-up text "Blazing Speed!".
  • This is the first and only rare gem to trigger an instant Blazing Speed bonus.
