Lava circles are medium-sized orange circles with a dark orange circumference. They appear to look like balls of lava. On their surfaces, lava is constantly moving downwards in the shape of small yellow semicircles.
Unlike most hazards in Rockitty, lava circles do not stay in one place. Instead, they chase Rockitty around the level. However, they can only travel so far before they stop.
There are three lava circles that make their only appearance in the last level. All of them are able to go through solid objects. If contact with one is made, Rockitty will lose one heart of health.
