* In ''Holy Umbrella'', though SuperNotDrowningSkills are ordinarily in play, it's still a bad idea to take a flying leap into the [[WombLevel Gastric Sea]].

** ''VideoGame/FalloutTactics'' is much worse; the water is obviously irradiated and glows with ominous sickly green glow.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/CampLazlo'', Raj gets a cheese wheel made with water from the Kafizzle River. He uses it as a plaything instead of eating it, because the river is acidic and eating the cheese would kill the imbiber within hours, so when [[{{Jerkass}} Lumpus]] eats it and thinks he's dying the rest of the episode is him enjoying his last day alive. Then it turns out the cheese was made in China.
** In a later episode, Clam gets sick and falls in love with Gretchen. One of the methods proposed to cure him is a soup made with water from Raj's Kafizzle River snow globe, which makes it [[AteTheSpoon strong enough to eat through the earth]].

** ''VideoGame/TombRaiderII'' had green in one level and red in another. The red water was meant to be ''lava'', despite it being... well, red water. Made worse by the fact that a) when you fell in it, you stood up and ''then'' keeled over and b) the very next level had proper instant burst-into-flames lava straight from the original TR.

** Also in ''Warlords of Draenor'', huge areas of Tanaan Jungle are covered in green snot-looking 'fel corruption', which depending on the depth of it will do nothing, give you a minor bit of damage, or a stacking buff/debuff that raises both your damage dealt and damage taken, but kills you immediately at 10 stacks.

* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}: [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaCircleOfTheMoon Circle of the Moon]]'' has purple water that hurts you when you touch it. It can be purified with the proper item, or just avoided with extremely judicious {{double jump}}ing.

* ''[[VideoGame/LEGOAdaptationGame LEGO Star Wars II]]'': In a Tatooine level in ''Film/ANewHope'', there is an area dotted with moisture vaporators that has deadly pools of mud. A vaporator next to it, when activated, can suck the area dry and provide a walkable surface.
* ''LEGO Batman'': there is regular water which is quite swimmable and of course grimy water with will kill you instantly. The bad water is actually green toxic waste and is accessible when you have unlocked certain characters that are immune to the toxins.

** ''[=TR3=]'' had an annoying and possibly terrifying variant, quicksand. Lara sank very quickly unless it was a designated shallow spot, once submerged your breath meter went down ''very'' quickly, and the kicker? Lara was unable to climb out of the stuff.

** The third stage of The Valley Of Defilement also has ''plague'' swamps. [[UpToEleven They wanted to give players something to hate more than the poison swamps]], it would seem.

* ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' also has a poisonous swamp that slowly damages anyone walking through. Except this one's called Deep Darkness and the water is murky.

* Similarly, swampland in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' is harmful, and any units that finish their turn while standing in the water will be Poisoned (treading water and climbing out onto solid ground has no ill effects.)

* A rare TV show example, ''{{MXC}}'', the comically re-dubbed version of ''TakeshisCastle'', often features a muddy brown water that many contestants fall into in the various challenges. The water is given a [[{{Squick}} disgusting]] name, every time it appears, like "septic sludge" or "toilet flushings from the Air Force One", often depending on who the contestants are.
** The original ''TakeshisCastle'' with the Craig Charles narration claims that this is runoff from a nearby pig farm in southern Japan.

* Land of Wind and Shade in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has ''oceans'' of oil, polluted by the its denizen Typheus. John apparantly avoids entering it at all costs (and walkarounds treat it like walls), but then again most characters in that comic generally avoid going into any deep body of liquid.

*** Probably just the pollution. Asbestos isn't dangerous if you drink it, only if you breath the fibers for a few years. Of course if you do that you will get cancer, which is hardly an instant death.
