Lava Caves (マグマの洞くつ, Maguma no Doukutsu, lit. Magma Cave) is a location in Tomba!. The Grapple can be found in right outside the entrance to here from the Stormy Mountain. A passage to the Hidden Village can also be found here.
The Fire Evil Pig is responsible for the curse in this area.
The area contains several platforms that starts to rumble and fall down after a couple of seconds. The abyss is filled with magma, so Tomba loses an extra life if he falls down into it.
The hot ceiling deals damage to Tomba during contact.
