* ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' plays with it on Kadara, a planet plagued - among other issues - by its water supply being ludicrously toxic. A certain audio log details how a desperate exile took a sip against better judgement and died a quick but agonizing death when the stuff ravaged his innards in short order. Other NPCs are hospitalized after merely having been near a puddle. The water is still blue (an incredibly gorgeous shade of blue even, courtesy of the geothermal processes active around the lakes and puddles), but tip as much as your armored toe in it and Ryder's environmental hazard bar will instantly drop to zero and (s)he'll recoil in pain. Do it again and you'll be treated to the critical mission failure screen in less than a second. In a somewhat unusual twist for a video game, your squad mates aren't immune to this sort of environmental hazard either and will vocally cry out as well if they come into contact with the lethal soup.

*** Strangely enough, Ratchet is capable of jumping out of the opaque goo in almost every level of the first and second games in the series, but will drown if he falls back in three times. In ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal Up Your Arsenal]]'', it kills him instantly.
*** Exploited in the Gemlik Base level of the first game, where in the section where you walk on the left side of the room with the Magnaboots, the rising orange liquid will cause Ratchet to fall off of the path.
*** Played with in ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankGoingCommando Going Commando]]'' in that the main path in Notak ended in a puzzle where you had to freeze and thaw the rising and falling fish-filled water to progress.
*** Appears again in the Obani Draco level of ''Up Your Arsenal''. Instead of causing Ratchet to fall off, a {{Good Bad Bug|s}} causes him to enter his sinking animation, which counts as a kill.

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

Added DiffLines:

* The eponymous water in ''VideoGame/ThePiratesOfDarkWater'', quite naturally, as the rare case of ''not water at all.''

to:

* While only present in one room in one level, ''VideoGame/{{Elsword}}'' has a swamp with ankle-deep purple water. The level's mobs are able to stand in it and not take damage (since you're in their home turf), but players take steady poison damage as well as lose MP while standing in it, making it essentially a mad dash between the sporadic patches of dry land and platforms.

* You can freely swim in even the grimiest water in the ''Franchise/JakAndDaxter'' games, making them an aversion...unless you go too far out, in which case [[BorderPatrol a shark, laser-cannon drone, or tentacle will kill you]]. Well, except in ''Jak X'', but since you spend that entire game driving...

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'', In addition to the usual [[LethalLavaLand lava]] in Cauldros, is one area with pools of glowing multicolored liquid that is said to be phosphorus. Walking into it unprotected hurts faster than the lava.
** [[JungleJapes Noctilum]] also has a few reddish toxic ponds here and there.

* 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]].
