* In ''VideoGame/TheFlintstonesTheRescueOfDinoAndHoppy'', the [[BigBoosHaunt haunted castle]] has a large lava pit near the beginning of it that starts rising once Fred passes a certain point in the level. You must get Fred to the top of the tower before his toes are toasted, obviously.

* "Slime Climb" in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry2DiddysKongQuest'' is like this, except that since the DKC series doesn't feature SuperDrowningSkills, the actual reason the player has to avoid the water is the InvincibleMinorMinion Snapjaw lurking in it.
** Because Snapjaw could not be implemented on the Game Boy, touching the slime hurts you in ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongLand 2''.

** [[VideoGame/{{Rayman}} The original game]] had a jungle level and a mountain level with plain old regular water that was rising, but there was also a mountain level where the hero was trapped between slowly ''descending'' water and a quicker DescendingCeiling. The idea was to use Rayman's hair-helicopter to cut through ropes tied to this ceiling so the weights attached to the ceiling would drop into the water, and the ceiling would stop descending before it pressed Rayman into the water and drowned him.

* A few levels in ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros.'', including a fortress level with rising lava. There's a code that enables "Challenge Mode". When used on side-scrolling stages, it disables scrolling left, making the experience more like the first ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' game (as well as allowing you to occasionally get into an {{Unwinnable}} situation). In vertical-scrolling stages however, it turns falling off the bottom of the screen at any time into an instant death, making those vertically-scrolling stages into Rise To The Challenge levels that move at your own pace.

** Several levels in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' had rising and falling water, usually accompanied by the DemonicSpider Boss Bass.

** There is a lava one in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'', too. It's technically because of the ground sinking instead of the lava rising, but functionally it plays like any regular example. Then, you have to redo it [[OneHitPointWonder with only one HP...]]
** In the same game, there is another that is somewhere between this and DescendingCeiling. Mario is upside down to the player so it is hard to say whether the sand is the floor or the ceiling.

The hazard may be water (due to SuperDrowningSkills), a rising LavaPit (with ConvectionShmonvection, naturally), [[GrimyWater toxic waste]], or anything else that will [[CollisionDamage injure]] or [[OneHitKill kill]] you if you fall in.

* In ''VideoGame/TinyToonAdventuresBustersHiddenTreasure'''s aptly-named Lava Cave area, there is, naturally, a part where you have to outrun rising lava.

After Buster successfully retrieves the next episode's script from the Pinball Fortress, the fortress begins to collapse which leaves him to run up the walls to escape.
