->''"Fools dig for water, corpses, or gold. The earth's real treasure is far deeper."''
-->--'''[[http://magiccards.info/pd2/en/1.html Grim Lavamancer]]''', ''MagicTheGathering''

A character who has power over all things igneous: magma, lava, and hot rocks. They can either liquefy ordinary rocks, control the flows of a [[LethalLavaLand perpetually active volcano]], or simply manifest the hot heavy stuff ''ex nihilo''. Could be considered a combination of DishingOutDirt and PlayingWithFire; such a character might possess these powers separately as well.

A SubTrope of LavaAddsAwesome.

The trope is named after the boss from ''VideoGame/MegaMan9''.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* Admiral Akainu from ''OnePiece'' has a Devil Fruit, called the Magu-Magu Fruit, that lets him control, generate and become magma and, as with all Logias, has NighInvulnerability. To make matters worse, he's also a completely unrepentant psychopath who has virtually no lines he won't cross in order to exact "Absolute Justice".
** And, even worse than that, he has apparently never heard of the concept of overkill.
* The Lava Release in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is a [[SuperpowerfulGenetics Kekkei Genkai]] created by combining Fire and Earth chakra. Mei Terumi (the fifth Mizukage), Kurotsuchi (the granddaughter of the Third Tsuchikage), and Dodai (an elder shinobi from the Cloud Village) were all born with it, and Roshi has it by virtue of Son Goku (the Four-Tailed Monkey) sealed inside of him. [[spoiler:Naruto later gains it himself after absorbing Son Goku's chakra along with those of the other Tailed Beasts.]] Besides magma, it's also shown to include control of quicklime and, in Dodai's case, ''rubber'' (or at least lava that he can make very rubber-like).
* A character in ''TheLawOfUeki'' converted tomatoes to magma.
* In ''MahouSenseiNegima'', Fate Averruncus' strongest spell, ''Terra Findens'', causes a huge explosion of lava. It's powerful enough to match Negi's ''[[ShockAndAwe Khilipl]] [[FantasticNuke Astrape]]''.
* ''Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid'' has Volcanic Blaze, a powerful, ranged, eruption spell that comes out from the ground that the target is standing on. [[spoiler:[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Harry/Halley]] [[PlayingWithFire Tribeca]] developed it as a secret trump card to use against [[TheOjou Victoria]] or [[DefeatingTheUndefeatable Sieglinde]], but she was forced to use it against [[SuperStrongChild Rio]] when Rio managed to back her into a corner]].
* Takeru from Manga/SnowWhiteAndSevenDwarfs is capable of generating heat and magma with his right arm, typically resulting in StuffBlowingUp.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Magma]] from ''ComicBook/NewMutants'', who also has the full range of fire powers at her disposal. She can create earthquakes too, but this is simply the logical side effect of bringing magma to the surface. Interestingly, Professor X once noted that training her is extremely difficult due to the inevitable property damage her powers cause.
* Volcana from the Franchise/MarvelUniverse. Also in her name.
* Long before any of the above appeared, the subterranean Lava Men attacked ComicBook/TheMightyThor.
* ComicBook/SpiderMan had a villain called the Molten Man. He is mostly-reformed these days and has helped Spidey out a few times.
* The Red Volcano ("brother" of the ComicBook/RedTornado) from Franchise/TheDCU controls both [[DishingOutDirt unheated earth and rock]] and molten magma.
* A race of lava creatures live deep under the Earth's surface in ''ComicBook/TheSavageDragon''. One was even a member of the super villain army, Vicious Circle.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* ''TheAdventuresOfSharkBoyAndLavaGirl'': Lava Girl, obviously.
* The Firebird in ''Disney/{{Fantasia 2000}}'', a [[GiantFlyer giant bird]] made of lava.
* The Lava Titan, Pyros, from ''[[Disney/{{Hercules}} Disney's Hercules]]''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The Pyroviles from ''Series/DoctorWho''.
* The very first MonsterOfTheWeek from ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' was the Magma Dopant.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''DungeonsAndDragons'' has Magma Paraelementals. The Para-elemental Plane of Magma in ''Dungeons and Dragons'' 1st and 2nd Edition is at the intersection of the planes of Earth and Fire. 3.5 has magmins, a type of humanoid elemental made out of magma. The 4th Edition Monster Manual has an entire section devoted to lava monsters, including a [[RuleOfCool fifteen-foot-high lava strider/spider.]] 4th edition also has the Stonefire Rager Paragon Path for barbarians.
* Magmon in the card game ''Chaotic''. His home is a lake sized LavaPit.
** This is made more apparent and cooler looking in the [[WesternAnimation/{{Chaotic}} animated series]] that focuses around the card game.
* The [[MagicTheGathering Vulshok of Mirrodin]] can range from simple VolcanicVeins up to this. The Flamekin of Lorwyn are similar, but more pure flame.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* VideoGame/SplosionMan, now with VideoGame/MsSplosionMan.
* Firelord from ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'' spawn lava monsters and have Volcano as an ultimate spell.
** Shaman in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' are capable of using some lava and magma-based attacks as well.
** And of course there is Ragnaros - a giant elemental Firelord made of fire, being summoned into Azeroth through pool of magma and having some appropriate attacks.
** Neltharion, aka Deathwing, was changed into a [[MagmaMan Magma Dragon]] due to the powers of the Demon Soul. His interior is white-hot magma which threatens to blow him apart, causing him to cover himself with special armor that helps contain his incalculable power. As shown in the ''Cataclysm'' cinematic, he constantly oozes lava from the cracks in his skin and seams of his armor.
** A rare-spawn beast that came with ''Cataclysm'' is [[http://www.wow-petopia.com/images/skin_pix/ancientseaturtlefire_v2.jpg Terrorpene, a turtle that lives in lava and looks like a living volcano]]. As a mob he has a powerful Fire Beam that does a ''lot'' of damage. He can also be tamed by Hunters.
* Magmites from ''CityOfHeroes''.
* Allison "Magma" in ''VideoGame/XMenLegends''.
* Magma Man from ''VideoGame/MegaMan9'' is the TropeNamer. His weapon is the Magma Bazooka. Despite the name he's more of a standard fire-based villain than a fire/earth combo, and his Bazooka shoots run-of-the-mill fireballs (though quite powerful fireballs at that).
* ''VideoGame/MegaManX 4'' has Magma Dragoon, who also used fire.
* [[PlayingWithFire Mars Adepts]] and [[DishingOutDirt Venus Adepts]] in ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'' have access to the Volcano and Gaia Psynergy series respectively. The Samurai class family, which has aspects of multiple elements but [[GuideDangIt takes some micromanaging to get into]], gets the Lava Shower series. However, you're most likely to see Volcano-series Psynergy in action in the first two games, because the main antagonists are from the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin aptly-named Mars Clan]].
* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' has Magma Men. And Fire Men. And Fire Imps. And dwarfs themselves are very capable of building a giant cannon that ''shoots'' a spray of magma. Or simply flood the outside world ([[HilarityEnsued or their own fortress]]) with the stuff.
** Notably, the RequiredSecondaryPowers to let such creatures live in magma but also survive coming out of it [[EverythingTryingToKillYou to menace your dwarves]] means they don't need to breathe and (for Fire Men and Magma Men) [[NoConservationOfEnergy can emit heat without changing their own temperature]], meaning putting them in water will do nothing but boil it.
* Obsidius, a monster created for ''Videogame/GodzillaUnleashed'', is a creature born of rock and magma given life by space crystals. His breath weapon is a stream of lava fired from his mouth, and he is immune to the lava in Seattle and resistant to fire-based weapons.
* The {{Pokemon}} attacks Eruption, Lava Plume and Earth Power: Two are Fire-type attacks; one is Ground-type.
** The Pokémon Magmar is vaguely man-shaped, and is made of fire and magma.
** And the Pokémon Camerupt is a camel with two volcanoes as its humps. Needless to say, it can learn all three mentioned attacks.
** As well as Heatran, a salamander-like being made of steel and lava. It too can use all three moves (albeit unlike with Camerupt, Eruption is a special event move only for this Pokémon), and has the signature move "Magma Storm".
** Groudon also kind of has this theme going on, even though it's a pure Ground-type. It's associated with land and the expansion of continents, thus, volcanic eruptions (its starting moveset when you capture it includes Eruption).
** Magcargo might be the best example - being of the Fire/Rock typing, it's a snail made of magma.
* In some of the ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank'' games, one of the weapons is a Lava Gun. However, when upgraded it becomes a Meteor Gun or in some games a [[AnIcePerson Liquid Nitrogen Gun]].
* In ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' and its prequen ''Dissidia 012'', Chaos and his OneWingedAngel form Feral Chaos use a lot of fire attacks with a visual theme closer to lava and magma than the fire attacks of other characters, such as fireballs that appear to be meteors wreathed in flame, and summoning plumes of fire from the ground.
* [[GenderBlenderName Hotaru]], the ''MortalKombat'' universe's resident LawfulStupid, has this power.
* A few such enemies can be encountered in [[LethalLavaLand Fire Mountain]] in ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'', such as [[http://walkthrough.starmen.net/mother3/image/enemies/magman.png Magman]] (a sentient mini-volcano that [[MookMaker can generate Pyreflies]]), and [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20091018222154/earthbound/images/e/e6/Mrs._Lava.png Mrs. Lava]] (a blob of lava that looks like an old woman, and has high-level fire attacks).
* In one section of ''VideoGame/DragonsLair'', these appear as enemies. They will turn you into one of them by tackling you.
* Spire from ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime Hunters''. His body is made of stone, and his signature weapon is the Magmaul, a gun which fires blasts of magma.
* The Gohma from ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath'' are monsters made out of magma and rock. [[spoiler: It's because they are the antibodies of the world and are lead by the will of the planet, Gohma Vlitra.]]
* Dark Souls has a few powerful fire based abilities, aptly named pyromancy, and chaos pyromancy in particular causes pools of lava should they impact solid ground.
* The Volcania boss in ''TheAdventuresOfRadGravity''.
* King Onyx from ''VideoGame/OdinSphere'' normally appears as a red-skinned, white haired humanoid, but his true form is a massive minotaur made of lava.
* The denizens of the planet [[LethalLavaLand Firim]] from ''VideoGame/{{Meteos}}'' can control the fiery planet's deep lava flows at will.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Toys]]
* ''Toys/{{Gormiti}}'' has an entire faction dedicated to this, with more figures than any single other faction.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* A very minor villain in ''Webcomic/TheNonAdventuresOfWonderella'': [[http://nonadventures.com/2009/04/04/a-broken-pumice/ "So I kinda thought Magman meant like... like a dude made of magnets. I mostly just punch things, so you can see the position this puts me in."]]
* In ''LookingForGroup'' Richard briefly meets Ajellah, The Mistress of Magma. [[CurbStompBattle A little while later]], [[EarnYourTitle Richard obtains the title of Mistress of Magma]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Originals]]
* While LetsPlay-ing ''SonicUnleashed'', the [=LPers=] jokingly reason that:
## Sonic's werehog form and stretchy arms are a result of him absorbing some of Dark Gaia's power.
## Dark Gaia lives under the Earth, where there is magma.
## Magma, a viscous fluid, is stretchy.
## [[InsaneTrollLogic Therefore, Sonic the Werehog is made of magma]].
* In the ''GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'', there's Magma, Lava, Volcano, Volcania, Kilauea (an [[PhysicalGod incarnation]] of the Hawai'ian goddes who fights crime and protects the people of Hawai'i., Kazan ("Volcano" in Japanese), Magma Man, and Krakatoa.
* Phoenixfire of the WhateleyUniverse. And her mom. And they can both form a huge sword of the stuff.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', all the characters get superpowers. This is Squidward's power. More specifically, he has a volcano on his head. Of course, considering the nature of the show, the lava ends up on SpongeBob and sets him on fire. [[WaterIsAir Under]][[RuleOfFunny water]].
** "Krakatoa!"
* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', three past Avatars (including Kyoshi) have been seen bending magma or lava. [[WordOfGod Episode commentary revealed that this is]] a combination of Firebending and Earthbending.
** Ghazan from ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' is only an earthbender, but manages to superheat rock regardless, apparently substituting [[FrictionBurn friction]] for firebending, then bend the resulting lava. [[spoiler:Bolin manages to bend existing lava in the season finale, though it's not shown if he can make any.]]
* Moltar, originally one of {{Birdman}}'s rogues gallery, rehired to direct ''SpaceGhostCoastToCoast'' and later ''{{Toonami}}'', although he doesn't use his powers in the latter two.
* From ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', the first installment of "Dial M For Monkey" has Monkey fight Magmanamous, a lava giant who just wants to go to sleep.
* In ''TheTick'', Magmamen are the dreaded enemy of the Molemen.
* Heatblast, one of Ben's original alien forms in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}''.
* Volcana from TheDCAU. Debuted in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', returned in ''JusticeLeague''.
* The Lava Demons from the ''MyLittlePonyAndFriends'' serial "Quest of the Princess Ponies".
