A lava cannon[1] is a red-and-yellow cannon with a Lava Bubble icon appearing in Super Mario Odyssey. It can be activated only by entering it as a captured Lava Bubble. After entering a lava cannon, the player is shown an arcing line showing the path Mario will be fired. After the player presses B Button, he is launched along that arc, typically a great distance.

Several lava cannons are found in the game, the vast majority of which are found in the Luncheon Kingdom, though one also appears on the Darker Side. In the Luncheon Kingdom, the first pair of lava cannons appears after Mario obtains the Multi Moon for the mission Big Pot on the Volcano: Dive In!, and they transport him between the Odyssey's location and the Salt-Pile Isle; they also allow Mario to collect the Power Moon for the sidequest Atop the Jutting Crag if he de-captures the Lava Bubble mid-launch. The second pair of lava cannons can be found immediately afterward, and they transport Mario between the Salt-Pile Isle and the Cheese Rock area near Peronza Plaza. The remaining lava cannons within the main area of the Luncheon Kingdom transport Mario to the top of the stewpot on Mount Volbono so that he can initially reach Cookatiel and obtain the Multi Moon for the mission Cookatiel Showdown!, though there are some additional lava cannons in the Lava Islands bonus area that allow Mario to collect the Power Moons for the sidequests Treasure of the Lava Islands and Flying Over the Lava Islands. On the Darker Side, Mario uses a lava cannon to transport himself between the segment with Moonsnakes and the segment with Uproots and Burrbos.
