* ''VideoGame/AffordableSpaceAdventures'' makes heat management a mechanic. If the Small Craft overheats, it will explode and being in excessively hot areas will speed this process up. Additionally, it takes a while for heat emissions to drop down after cutting off sources of heat, so if one is hoping to get past something that will kill the Small Craft if it detects heat, simply cutting off the gas engine immediately prior won't be good enough.

* ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 2'' has several lava stages. Touching the lava kills you, the rest of the stage gives no problems.
** Even then, you only die if you submerse yourself completely (the lava is just your bog standard BottomlessPit). You're perfectly safe as long as part of your sprite is poking above the lava.
** Donkey Kong Country 3 also has stages inside a factory, where the player must travel across vats of molten metal. Unlike the above example, landing on them hurts you.

* ''VideoGame/{{La-Mulana}}'' features lava in places, most notably in the Inferno Cavern, which, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as you can guess]], is full of molten lava. You don't take damage unless you swim in it, and it only damages you gradually. It's quite possible to escape if you're close enough to dry land. Curiously, immersing yourself in lava doesn't damage any of your possessions, although you can't access your computer/inventory without a "heat-proof case."
** And you can actually swim in lava without taking damage. All you need is a cape of ice. It's probably [[AWizardDidIt magic]], but whatever.
** The ice cape even works if you lack the PowerUp necessary to swim in water without [[SuperDrowningSkills taking damage]]. This may be considered SequenceBreaking, but it gives you something to [[FridgeLogic think about]].

** I assumed the green stuff was water that happened to be green, possibly because it had something nasty in it. It's impossible to tell, since everything liquid and some things that aren't (like the waving vines in some ''Oh No More Lemmings'' levels) triggers the 'drowning' death rather than something more customized. As for the fire sprayers, HitboxDissonance may be the culprit there rather than ConvectionSchmonvection.

** And in episode 15 of [[Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger GoGo Sentai Boukenger]] [=GoGo=] Jet is flown right into a volcano and someone dangled down to pik up a crystal that's floating in the lava.

** Played straight on the episode "The End of the World". Solar heat is shown to be a terribly lethal thing to let through, with special sun visors to block it out. But when the visors come down, the victims have plenty of time to scream and DUCK to avoid them (with mixed success, depending on the room and whether the Doctor is nearby). The walls seem to stand up to the energy reasonably well, too.

* ''JourneyToTheCenterOfTheEarth''. The protagonists are lifted out of HollowEarth by riding up an erupting lava tube on a raft of fossilised wood (it's even more silly in the 1959 movie where they're using a large metal altar dish).

** Perhaps at it's worst in the Michelangelo birthday episode. Shredder is standing near a lava pool with Krang, [[AvetertedTrope complaining about the heat]], ''[[ToDumbTooLive then reaches directly into the lava to pull out a strange substance with his bare hands.]]''

* ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' is... weird about this. Simply being in or near a lava-filled area isn't enough, but you can still get burned by getting too close to it. Stepping in is, obviously, a great way to die. However, fire and explosion attacks can damage you even if you aren't directly touching them. [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe A high fire resistance shield can all but negate this.]] Like a few other damage sources in this game, it seems to be a bit of HitboxDissonance. The game doesn't explicitly HandWave this issue, but it could be a result of the player character's unique condition.
** The Iron Keep in ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' partially averts this trope. Throughout the area there are treasures placed on floating rocks over the lava, which require the player to amass extremely high fire defense in order to safely traverse them.

condition. There's also a ring you can obtain that grants near-immunity to lava damage, allowing you to walk through it taking only small amounts of harm. The Iron Keep in ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsII'' partially averts this trope. and the Smouldering Lake in ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' do away with that though.

They will likely still die in the process, but death isn't exactly a showstopper to an Undead.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/UltimateSpiderMan'' episode "The Parent Trap", this trope gets [[ZigZaggingTrope zig-zagged]]. Power Man gets tossed into a volcano and the only danger he faces is the possibility of ''drowning in the lava''. While in and of itself this is justified since Power Man is [[NighInvulnerability nigh invulnerable]], there's no similar justification for his ''costume'' being unharmed. Later, when Spidey shoots some webbing down to pull Power Man up, the heat from the lava incinerates the webbing before it reaches him. But when he uses AppliedPhlebotinum to induce a "mini-eruption" and launch Power Man to safety, Spidey is standing what ''should'' be perilously close to the magma himself without taking any damage.
