* Shows up pretty regularly in ''VideoGame/LEGORockRaiders''. And they are much despised because your miners don't seem to realize that [[ArtificialStupidity cutting corners across lava isn't a bright idea]].

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', you have Searing Gorge, Burning Steppes, and Shadowmoon Valley (the Outland version; the one on Draenor is a GreenHillZone). There's also the Blackrock Mountain dungeon complex which, along with including the infamous Molten Core, has what appears to be a volcanic crater right in the entryway.
** For that matter, the dwarf ''capital city'' Ironforge has...well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a giant forge, filled with molten iron]], right in the center. One would think the city would be a giant Dutch oven, but [[ConvectionSchmonvection you know what they say about that.]] Back in vanilla it was deadly to fall into, but now anybody can survive for long enough to teleport out from it using your Hearthstone. Classes with healing capabilities and mages with their fire protection can survive indefinitely. And if you don't have any means to teleport out of there, magma becomes a {{Mercy|Kill}} [[DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist Slap On The Wrist]].
*** At some point they put up invisible walls to keep players from offing themselves in the forges.

* The volcano zones in the ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' games (the Old Volcano in 1, the Volcano in 2 and 3, and Volcanic Hollow in 4) are pretty much the Prehistoria volcano played straight. It does, however, avert ConvectionSchmonvection: without the right equipment (a Cold Drink or armor with the Heat Resist skill), the player will take damage just by setting foot in the area.

** Don't forget Mt. Chimney in ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' and their remakes. In ''Emerald'', they even added a cave underneath Mt. Chimney, filled with ''even more lava,'' and it actually comes with a [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] from one of the Team Magma grunts!

* The ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' series has three different hunting grounds simply named Volcano and the Volcanic Hollow from ''4'' as regular locations, and Battleground, Sacred Land, and Ingle Isle as single-area locations reserved for particularly strong monsters. The heat of these areas will slowly drain your health if you don't consume a Cold Drink, and the monsters that live in these locations tend to have an affinity for [[PlayingWithFire Fire]].

* A little different, but in ''VideoGame/StarFox64'', Solar (the Sun) is a lethal lava land, and the intense heat causes you to steadily lose health. Your team members take damage too, but since they can't be healed mid-mission the level designers made it so they only take some heat damage near the beginning for some dramatic effect, otherwise they'd all be dead one-third of the way through the mission.
** Certain parts of the [=DarkIce=] Mines are like this (particularly underground), as well as the Volcano Force Point Temple in VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures.
*** Oddly enough [[ConvectionSchmonvection Fox only catches fire]] if he falls in the magma, yet does not die instantly or melt. Also, he is set ablaze, but if he can douse those flames, he'll be fine.

* It is thought that many millions of years ago, UsefulNotes/{{Venus}} underwent a global resurfacing event wherein the ''entire'' mantle (then molten) welled up to the surface before cooling.
* Our own planet UsefulNotes/{{Earth}} was like this at least a few times early in its geologic history.

* Hailfire Peaks from ''[[{{Banjo-Kazooie}} Banjo-Tooie]]'' is an interesting example. One side is a fiery volcano, while the other side is a SlippySlideyIceWorld.
* ''Banjo Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge'' also has a HailfirePeaks example, putting Grunty's volcanic factory within the last regular stage, Freezing Furnace.

* Planet Scorch in ''VideoGame/{{Ristar}}''. He even has ''VideoGame/{{Ristar}}'' is a subverted example. While the stage does take place underground, and there are plenty of earthquakes, fire, and other volcanic activity, there is no actual lava to be seen. Still, the stage is hot enough to give Ristar an idle animation IdleAnimation where he tries to fan himself with his hand.

* ''VideoGame/{{Vectorman}} 2'' has three levels that take place at a volcano; "Fired", "Magma P.I.", and "Turn Up the Heat". The third of these levels involves Vectorman fighting an anthropomorphic fire monster.

* Barathrum from ''TotalAnnihilation'', although this doesn't actually have much effect on game play aside from the fact that you can't build naval units given that the 'seas' are made of lava.
* Shows up pretty regularly in ''LEGORockRaiders''. And they are much despised because your miners don't seem to realize that [[ArtificialStupidity cutting corners across lava isn't a bright idea]].
