* In the [[ClimacticVolcanoBackdrop climatic fight scene]] of ''Film/StarWarsEpisodeIII: RevengeOfTheSith'' [[spoiler: between Obi-Wan and Anakin]] the lava behaves surprisingly like a river, complete with a water...ahem, "lava" fall into a lava lake and lots of what appears to be lava mist all over the place. It also goes without saying that being one with the Force apparently allows for a lot of ConvectionSchmonvection, one bizarrely brief case of spontaneous combustion aside. Admittedly, the whole scene [[RuleOfCool looks awesome.]]

* Subverted in ''[[Film/SpyKids Spy Kids 3D: Game Over]]''. The lava behaves much like this trope, enough that it can be surfed on, [[spoiler:but it turns out to be completely harmless liquid.]]

* In ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' [[spoiler: Gollum and the Ring tumble into the magma within Mount Doom. Gollum splashes around and sinks, and the ring stays afloat. The rock slowly melts, and the ring melts instantly upon hitting the rock.]] Although interestingly, when the Ring hits the lava it quickly flashes up its fire-writing which took several minutes to appear when heated in a normal fire and the lava directly below it turns dark and solid. So it looks like the Ring actually absorbed enough heat out of the lava to activate the lettering while cooling the lava it was touching to rock; it took several minutes for enough heat to conduct to re-liquefy first the cooled lava and then the Ring itself.

* In ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' the T1000 falls into molten metal[[note]](Okay, not lava but close enough.)[[/note]] that mysteriously splashes just like coloured water. Molten metal does splash if hit by a hard object like a rock, even more so by a man-sized metallic object. It's not so fun for those working near it, like iron foundry workers, who need to (religiously) obey job safety rules.



* ''Film/TheHobbitTheDesolationOfSmaug'': Thorin boats down a channel of molten gold in a wheelbarrow. An iron wheelbarrow. Gold melts above 1,000 degrees Centigrade.
* In ''Film/{{Krull}}'', Colwyn ''sticks his arm up to the elbow in a pool of lava to obtain the Glaive.'' Good golly, Miss Molly; the movie should have been over then and there, but he's perfectly fine.

* Played with in the ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' episode "Hoist Goes Hollywood". Hoist threatens to drop Spike and Carly into "flesh-eating lava", then actually does so, which convinced Megatron that the Autobot was out of his mind, causing him to retreat. The "lava" was actually a prop containing mud. Well, they were at a movie studio...
* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' where the Monkey King uses a spell to make a volcano erupt. The group fails to outrun the lava and get coated in it, only to harmlessly emerge from it seconds later. Seeing as how the Monkey King is a prankster spirit, his spell also turned the lava into cherry gelatin.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', Fry's fossilized dog (long story) falls into lava, and he almost jumps in after it, despite Farnsworth's protestations. Then Bender actually does jump in after it. Despite being, well, a robot, he should not be able to see anything while "swimming," making it pretty hard to find a small, rapidly sinking stone dog. He also ought to melt after a few seconds, but this is hand-waved by him being "40% dolemite" [[RunningGag (he's also 40% several other things)]]. His eyes melt only after he escapes the lava, due to RuleOfFunny.

* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/{{Mixels}}''. The Infernites, being a [[PlayingWithFire fire element tribe]], handle the stuff no problem, to the point they actually ''treat'' it like water, with things such as lava showers and lava hot tubs. However, a loosened clog from the lava shower (which happens to be connected to the rest of the water system of Mixel Land) travelling through the pipes of the other kingdoms is enough to severely burn other element-based Mixels.

* In the first DirectToVideo ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' movie, magma and lava are essentially glowing, orange water, to the point where even the directors refer to it as a generic fluid in their commentary. Characters surf on it with droplets clearly touching their feet, yet have to be protected against it by a force field if it rains down on them.
* Averted in ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''. The lava in ''The Rite of Spring'' segment is very viscous and thick, and is not exactly nice to whatever it encounters.

* The climatic fight scene of ''Film/StarWarsEpisodeIII:RevengeOfTheSith'' plays this straight as an arrow. They may be from a galaxy far, far away, but they still should've been cooked alive from the inside out well before they managed to finish their dramatic dialogue.
** Some argue that the Force had something to do with their survival, which still wouldn't explain how the mining crafts just skimmed along the river of lava like water. It did [[RuleOfCool look awesome though.]]

* In MegaManZero and MegaManZero2 there is at least 1 lava stage in each. Zero can even jump across floating rocks in the lava if they are present. The lava does act as an instant death trap if directly touched, though.

* In ''Webcomic/RustyAndCo'', much of level 7 is spent in the vicinity of lava without harm -- though D&D's rules for it may take part of the blame. [[http://rustyandco.com/comic/level-7-92/ Grinner is fine until he actually hits, and then the problem is that he's carrying explosives.
