One of the four basic blocks (along with Cave BackgroundDirt, and Rock), Lava is an unsplicable solid lava pain foreground block which naturally generates in every non-blasted and certain blasted worlds. A lot of other blocks are essentially spliced from its seed, making it an important element in Growtopia. It can be found in the last four rows of a newly created world.


Being a lava pain block, a Lava knocks the player back and puts the player on fire until the player stops all motion when touched. A player will die after making contact with a lava pain block five times in quick succession (recovering from damage takes roughly 5 seconds), but a player with the Fireproof mod may take up to ten consecutive hits.

Below is a list of trees that can be made by splicing a Lava Seed with another seed.

  • Lava's original graphics were updated on February 13, 2013, making it appear more fluid and dripping as opposed to being a solid cube. The old texture for Lava was reimplemented into the game on June 2014, as the Lava Cube.
