* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' averts this completely. The second half of the Omega Ruins is full of smoke and red light, with glowing rock a long distance below the main path. However, the rock appears to be either cooling down or warming up, and it doesn't move.

** Taken almost literally in [[LevelAte Mount Volbono]] from ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', where the lava is actually very hot soup. Touching it will cause Mario to leap up in pain, but Capturing certain enemies allows him to freely swim through it as if it was water.

* In ''Manga/OutlawStar'', Aisha relaxes in a lava pool, and Gean falls in. He runs out, parboiled, but otherwise unharmed. [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent Aisha is a were-tigress]] in a universe where [[AWizardDidIt all space-pirates are Chinese cyborg-wizards]]. Gene definitely should've died horribly, though.

* 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.

Real-life lava is molten rock (the subterranean version is called magma). Imagine an entire lake of electric-stove heating elements, all glowing red-hot. Its viscosity, or thickness, ranges from that of ketchup to much thicker than peanut butter what you would expect of a liquid ''rock''. It is an opaque emitter of yellow-to-red light. Its temperature is typically 7001,200 degrees C (1,3002,200 degrees F). Even the smallest flows will blister the skin before one can get close enough to touch it, while large amounts can cause fatal burns from much farther away. It is often accompanied by volcanic gas that can contain elements that you do ''not'' want to breathe.

** Lava in [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]] is treated exactly the same way, though it will set your character on fire if you step in it. If you have the hit points and temerity to swim in it (or turn God Mode on), it's basically boiling, glowing lemonade.
