* 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 700–1,200 degrees C (1,300–2,200 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.

** RealLife lava falls ''do'' exist, and they do look as spectacular as their descriptions go if not ''[[RealityIsUnrealistic more]]'' so, but the comet imagined by Verne could've not realistically have magmatism of the scale needed to support a sustained lava flow of this magnitude. His saving grace, though, was that the root causes of magmatism [[ScienceMarchesOn were extremely poorly understood at the time]]. The plate tectonics theory was proposed in TheThirties, and [[ItWillNeverCatchOn was originally laughed at]], and more-or-less realistic numerical models of the Earth's interior were developed only in TheFifties.

** {{Justified|Trope}} because it actually ''is'' boiling hot water which you have to cool down in order to be able to swim through it and only years of {{Genre Savvy}}ness would make you think otherwise. However, this doesn't explain [[ArtisticLicensePhysics why the water isn't just vaporizing]] – and why it's [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience turning red]]…

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "[[Recap/FuturamaS4E7JurassicBark Jurassic Bark]]", Fry's fossilized dog (long story) falls into lava, and he and Leela almost jump 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.

* In ''Manga/PokemonSpecial'', Yellow ''surfs'' on lava. At one point, she even goes around in circles to create a ''lava tornado'' that sucks up Lance. (Of course, [[spoiler:Lance survives… by protecting himself with a giant ''bubble''.]]) Pokemon in general in ''Special'' are amazingly resilient. While Lance and his Gyarados needed a bubble to protect them [[spoiler:(which were, incidentally, strong enough to ''break Yellow's arm'' when she was struck by one),]] his Dragonite didn't need protection, and quite freely swam through the lava. It was hurt, but not by much, which may well be a reference to the Dragon-type's resistance to Fire attacks.
