* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "[[Recap/FuturamaS4E7JurassicBark Jurassic Bark]]", Fry's fossilized dog (long story) falls into lava, and he almost jumps in after it, despite Farnsworth's protestations ("Professor! Lava! Hot!"). 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.

* Done in ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretSaturdays''. Not only can people (and volcano lizards) swim in lava like it is water (complete with underlava vision), Drew ''dives'' into it from a great height.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}'' has lava as a commonly seen liquid, mainly in planet cores and on fiery planets (including magma planets, which are planet-wide lava ''oceans''). Touching it causes severe damage (which doubles each tick, in case you want to try to be clever with healing items), but standing next to it is harmless. You can even siphon it up with your matter manipulator, allowing you to carry around thousands of gallons of the stuff. Never cools, either.

* In ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' there is an area filled with lava that is really only water with a lava-like pattern on the surface. You can swim in it, and it's completely transparent once you dive. The only difference is that you take damage while swimming.

The actual lava in ''Donkey Kong 64'', found in the same temple even, is instant death, even if the character does just fall through it like water.

* In ''ComicBook/XMenPhoenixLegacyOfFire'', Jena and Madelyne Pyre take a bath on a "magma spring". Given that they are extra-dimensional demi-human beings from Limbo, its possible they can bathe just fine in it.

** ''Dark Souls'' has a weird relationship with lava: it works differently in all of the games. ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' has it as flowing, but solid enough that you can walk through it with relative ease (besides the obvious burning to death without a certain magic ring problem). ''VideoGame/DarkSouls2'' has nothing but [[LavaPit Lava Pits]], where the lava acts more liquid and serve as colorful BottomlessPits. ''VideoGame/DarkSouls3'' kind of stops midway between the two: you can walk in it again, but now it acts like a swamp rather than a burning floor (and adds what is probably the most surreal lava-related fact in the series: you can ''block lava damage'' by holding up a good shield while wading through it).

** ''VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine'': If you hacked the game to give yourself infinite health, you could swim under the lava in Corona Mountain just like regular water. Apparently, the developers made lava by taking the mechanic of polluted water surface dealing damage (seen previously in a few other areas), dialing the damage dealt up to "OneHitKill", and overlaying an entire body of water with it.

* ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} 3'''s dungeon maps have red-tinted water that serves as lava. And lava tilesets, meaning you can literally walk on lava. Most maps using it will have the lava-covered areas [[ConvectionSchmonvection deal periodic damage]].
* ''Videogame/ClashAtDemonhead'' allows you to swim through lava when you buy a (very expensive) Super Suit. Without it, you'll die on contact with the lava.
* In ''Videogame/{{Ufouria}}'' for the NES there is blue water, orange water (lava) and purple water (some toxic substance, possibly acid or poison). You can swim in these but only the first, obviously, won't kill you.

* ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'' even lets Amaterasu use the Waterspout technique on lava. If she has the Fire Tablet equipped, she can swim in lava, otherwise she's instantly ejected and suffers damage. Perhaps [[AWizardDidIt her being the Sun Goddess]] grants her this ability?

* In ''Manga/OutlawStar'', Aisha relaxes in a lava pool, and Gean falls in. He runs out, parboiled, but otherwise unharmed. [[OurMonstersAreDifferent 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 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.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]],'' however, has denser lava. Mind you that, by ''denser'', we mean ''you can walk on it''[[note]]There are places where falling on the lava, such as Death Mountain Crater, counts as falling into a BottomlessPit due to the player's inability to get out (no climbable walls and too much flinching to aim the Hookshot if Link has it), but we can assume Link somehow climbs back up[[/note]]. You won't even take damage for a few seconds if you're wearing the appropriate tunic.

* 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.
