* In the eighth episode of ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'', it is done with [[FishOutOfWater Saito]] and Siesta, who are opposite genders. Saito had [[MakesSenseInContext just built a hot tub]], and Siesta has a crush on him. He was planning on being there alone, and is [[MakesSenseInContext punished by his master]] (and local {{Tsundere}}) Louise when he shows interest in other women. He has feelings for Siesta, but is in a HaremSeries, so it's awkward for him.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': While at first it might look like a simple BathtubScene in a series notorious for its {{Fanservice}}, the scene between Jaime and Brienne in "Kissed By Fire" quickly becomes a pivotal moment in their CharacterDevelopment.

Most of the time HeterosexualLifePartners; rarely are they ever PlatonicLifePartners, though this can be used if the PlatonicLifePartners in question have enough UnresolvedSexualTension between them to make them popular targets for shipping and the writer wants to do a scene where said UnresolvedSexualTension comes to a head

This is when two characters (most of the time HeterosexualLifePartners; rarely are they ever PlatonicLifePartners, though this can be used if the PlatonicLifePartners in question have enough UnresolvedSexualTension between them to make them popular targets for shipping and the writer wants to do a scene where said UnresolvedSexualTension comes to a head) [[FuroScene take a bath together]] and usually converse. This causes them to really get to know each other better or become better friends. Usually either really significant moments of the plot are discussed or one character's past is revealed in a Bathtub Bonding scene.

* In ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'', Asia (a European) tries to invoke this when Issei accidentally walks in on her in the bath, saying that she's heard of the Japanese practice of communal bathing and would be okay doing that with him to strengthen their relationship. Issei tells her she's misunderstood the idea.[[note]]This is an excuse on Issei's part - he'd love to, but can't trust himself not to hit for a home run. Asia doesn't quite grasp this, [[ChivalrousPervert so he won't tempt himself]].[[/note]]
