Darmanitan @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Sheer Force
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- U-turn
- Superpower
- Flare Blitz
- Earthquake

Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 SpD / 4 Spe
Careful Nature

Charizard @ Charizardite X
Ability: Blaze
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature

Infernape @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Iron Fist
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature

These are sets I use. Fire type Physical Attackers for the most part are pretty frail, which explains the Choice Scarfs.

damn, you took all of the good ones :(
There's still Victini, he can fire off insanely powerful V-Create when banded, and has access to Bolt Strike, Zen Headbutt and momentum-gaining U-Turn.
Arcanine ought to use Choice Band as well for maximizing the damage output; as one who was extremely fond of Arcanine in the past, with my experience, the doge's best set is the offensive band.
Your Charizard X set is not the best, completely walled by Heatran. Pack Earthquake with you since a Pokemon that's weak against hazards ought not to spin them away.
Finally, Infernape is not that restrictive. You ought to note it can use Thunder Punch and Stone Edge, and to an extent, Fake Out without scarf.
Geez it's just a suggestion lol. These aren't my only sets, I have other sets too, such as  Mega Charizard X  with EQ. Thnx for the tips tho

Blaziken-Mega (M) @ Blazikenite
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Nature: Adament (+Atk -Sp.A)
- Flare Blitz
- ThunderPunch
- Swords Dance
- Brick Break/High Jump Kick

this is the only other physical fire type I can think off (but it is the most powerful stat wise, with 160 base attack). Thunder Punch for the common water type, Brave Bird for powerful STAB, you can't have a good physical sweeper without Swords Dance and Brick Break to deal with screeners+ coverage.

Brave Bird looks appealing but it sucks on Blaziken. I don't see what it covers. I do wonder where is the Fire-type STAB.
Mega-Blaziken's typical set uses Flare Blitz, High Jump Kick, Protect and Swords Dance/Knock Off/Thunder Punch, depending on the team's needs.
You ought to note that Blaziken is still viable without mega-evolution , and it can use Protect, Flare Blitz, Low Kick and Knock Off without mega-evolution. It can still KO Kyogre with Spikes and SR damage.
Brave Bird is a Flying-type move. Blaziken is Fire/Fighting. Brave Bird won't do stab damage.
I would take out Brave Bird and replace it with a physical Fire move, like Blaze Kick or Flare Blitz,
oh, i forgot he was fighting, i got confused and thought he was flying. i will change it.
