* Some of the jungle levels and one south pacific level in ''Franchise/TombRaider III'' have mud that makes Lara sink if she steps in it. In some spots, the mud is deep enough to make Lara be completely submerged and she will quickly drown.

* The NintendoDS game ''[[SummonNight Summon Night: Twin Age]]'' consists of around 60% different types of sinky stuff by volume, such as "Poison Marshes" and "Desert Quicksand".
* In the PC game ''PrincessMaker2'', there's an "adventure" event which has a few swamps where you can slog around. They're not really dangerous; they have hidden secret shortcuts in them, even.

* In ''WorldOfTanks'', different types of terrain offer different degrees of resistance to tank treads. Naturally, swampy ground or bodies of water make tanks move very slowly.
* Jungles are the worst possible terrain for any kind of divisions in ''HeartsOfIron 2''. Armoured divisions barely make any progress at all, all troop types suffer massive penalties and on top of that they can easily start shrinking due to attrition if your supply lines and techs aren't on par. Marshes are almost as bad, but at least there's usually no attrition and Marine divisions suffer less penalties to combat and movement.

* In ''GretelAndHansel 2'', Gretel can wade around the swamp but can't get across completely without her brother's help because of a snake that lurks halfway across.

* The "negative cover" system in DawnOfWar usually consists of swampy or at least flooded terrain. In normal cover, units move slower but take less damage, here they move slower and take ''more'' damage.

* ''MetalGearSolid3'' has pools of mud like this. If the mud is deep enough, Snake will eventually sink to his death. What's more, the mud houses leeches which will cling to Snake and sap his stamina.
* ''One Piece: Unlimited Cruise: Episode 2'' had "Boggy Isle" with this feature...
* ''Lufia: Ruins Of Lore'' had Jungle Spire which have mud spots that take you down to a cave area if you step in the right areas...

* Although it's technically more of a swamp, both DemonsSouls and DarkSouls feature this, complete with reduced mobility and absence of rolling. In both games, the swamp is also poisonous, so staying in it for long isn't exactly advisable. In the first game, swamp jellyfishes that live in it can be killed to provide anti-poison herbs, but the absence of rolling is lethal since any other enemies [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard can cross the swamp with nary a hitch]], unlike you. In the second game, the enemies that live on it can still charge at you at maximum speed, but an equippable ring exists so that movement penalties are removed entirely when walking on swamps. Oh, and fast rolling (<25% equip burden, or Dark Wood Grain Ring ninja flip) is not disabled in the swamp.
