Location and Uses
Lava is molten rock that is usually in the form of thick, fiery liquid that ranges from red, orange to yellow. In most Zelda games, it will cause Link to lose health if he falls in, and sometimes forces him to start the room over in a few 3D games. In some games such as Ocarina of Time, Link is able to walk on the lava and will be constantly taking damage, however wearing the Goron Tunic will significantly reduce the amount of damage received. The same also applies to Majora's Mask, but the amount of damage taken and how it is taken differs from his forms. Link as a Hylian boy will be able to walk on the lava while constantly taking damage. Deku Link and Zora Link will restart a room if they fall into lava, while Goron Link is completely immune to lava.
Lava also appeared in some dungeons as a red tile in The Legend of Zelda, but like water, it cannot be walked on and is thus harmless. The Stepladder however can be used to walk over water and lava. In The Adventure of Link, falling into lava will automatically count as a death and will reduce one of Link's lives.
