The Yomega Firestorm is an all-plastic transaxle yo-yo produced by Yomega. It has been released in many special editions promoting businesses or sports teams. A butterfly version is also available as the Firestorm Wing. It was also sold in the late 1990s as a Hyper Yo-Yo product by Bandai. 

The original model of the Firestorm features a body shape similar to the Russell Professional but more rounded and streamlined. The second release of the Firestorm featured a more standard Convex shape like the Fireball. The third version of the yo-yo featured a flared shape to make it perform better at string tricks.

In 2014, the Firestorm name was used for a collaborative model between Yomega and YoYoJam.
