|“Cole, the Lava Monster. What if it's still in the cave, waiting for us?”|
“What, just standing there, staring at a wall? No way, I'm sure he's gone back to his—”
|— Vania and Cole in "The Ascent"|
While crossing the lava, Cole, the Upply, Wu, and Vania stumble across a Lava Monster who rises from the lava. Its tentacles attacks the group, so Korgran uses his axe to cut the tentacles, but the Magma Monster grows more in replacement. Cole uses his upgraded Elemental Powers to move rocks and use them to attack the Lava Monster.
He also orders Wu to deflect the lava balls from the Lava Monster and for Fungus to distract the beast with his Ice magic. Finally, he instructs Plundar to get a boulder which Adam climbs for. The Lava Monster attempts to burn Plundar, but Fungus uses his magic to freeze the monster. Adam then pushes the boulder and huge rock lands on the Lava Monster causing it to sink.
The Upply, Cole, Wu, and Vania are being chased by the Lava Monster they battled earlier. They discover some mine carts and decide to use them to escape the Lava Monster.
Cole, Wu, Vania, and the Upply are making their way back when Vania ponders about the Magma Monster being back at the cave. Cole thinks he's won't be a bother and thinks he's staring at a wall when all of a sudden, they see him staring at a wall. Cole then accelerates the Fire Stone Mech as the beast chases after him.
While dealing with the Dire Bats, the Lava Monster charges Cole, and they begin to fight each other. The Lava Monster attempts to take Cole into the lava with him, but Cole is able to break free. The Lava Monster then pins the Fire Stone Mech, but Cole pulls out a sword and cuts the tentacles. Cole spots everyone else in the mine carts heading straight for the lava, so he tries to save them. However, the Lava Monster stands in his way, but that doesn't stop Cole from destroying the beast and saving everyone.
Lava Monsters are made out of magma and had multiple tentacles surrounding its mouth. Furthermore, Lava Monsters also possess a large, circular mouth which was used to spit fire balls.
Powers and Abilities
Lava Monsters are able to live in both lava as well as on land. Its extended tentacles makes it difficult for anyone to attack the beast because of the risk of being burned. Furthermore, if anyone would cut the tentacles, the Lava Monster could simply replace them. The beast would also spew fire balls as its means of attack and it could move at a rapid pace despite its huge size.
- It somewhat resembles the Preeminent, the only major difference is that it's made of lava and has eyes.
