** ''VideoGame/DisgaeaD2ABrighterDarkness'' has Etna ordering the Prinnies to put up statues of Laharl. She added a fountain to one in a strategic place, making it look like Laharl is endlessly urinating, and thus in possession of a literally BottomlessBladder. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny He is not pleased when he sees it]].

* While not strictly necessary, in ''VideoGame/{{Fahrenheit}}'' (also known as ''Indigo Prophecy'' in the States), you can have the characters get a drink or a bite to eat, shower, change clothes, or go to the bathroom (with appropriate discretion shot) if you've got the free time. Doing so will usually increase their [[SanityMeter mental stability]] by a few points, the first time you do it in a scene, and is a worthwhile activity: big morale gains are few and far between, while big losses are frequent, so the little things help out a lot. Bottoming out in mental stability leads to [[NonStandardGameOver suicide]] or other bad endings.

** Averted at the beginning of ''VideoGame/LeatherGoddessesOfPhobos'', in which you get a sudden urge to go to the bathroom after a few mugfuls of beer. Fortunately, you start the game in front of two bathroom doors, and [[SchrodingersGun you have to make a decision to choose]] [[PurelyAestheticGender one of either appropriate gender]] in order to empty your bladder by using the toilet. But you have to be quick, or it will result in a PottyFailure (which counts as a PressStartToGameOver).

[[GameplayAndStorySegregation Except for storyline purposes,]] video game characters are seldom forced to complete such mundane tasks as eating, sleeping, bathing, [[LimitedWardrobe changing clothes]], or going to the bathroom. Often the only "need" they have to be concerned about is their [[HitPoints health meters]], but even that can almost always be taken care of in a jiffy with a swig of a potion or a dip in a HealingSpring.

* In the early days, many InteractiveFiction games attempted to add "realism" by requiring the player to eat. This often added to the difficulty by requiring the players to find (rare) food items, pretty much constantly, as authors never really got how long a human in a crisis could go without eating. In one JustForFun/{{egregious}} example, the protagonist of Creator/{{Infocom}}'s ''VideoGame/{{Stationfall}}'' had to eat almost hourly lest he fall into a coma and die (within the parody-SpaceOpera setting, this was explained by the comically low nutritional value of futuristic food).

* This is especially obvious in ''Creator/DanBrown'' novels like ''Literature/TheDaVinciCode'' and ''AngelsAndDemons'' which take place in a really short period of time, practically minute-by-minute, without the main character needing to eat, sleep, or use the restroom over more than a 24 hour period.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': As in ''Persona 3'' and ''4'', there are bathrooms all over the game, ''but you never need to use them''.

* ''DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'' has Etna claim she needs to use the bathroom whenever she sneaks off to write in her journal. Laharl also claims that demons don't wash their hands after they go ([[BadButt because they're "evil"]]), though Etna insists she does.
** In ''Disgaea3AbsenceOfJustice'', Mao has claimed one of the school's bathrooms as his dorm room, simply because it's in a convenient location.

* Subverted in the ''VideoGame/{{Crusader}}'' games by Origin Systems, a 2D-isometric shooter based on the ''UltimaVIII'' engine. While the titular Silencer was not depicted as actually using the toilet, and received no bonus for accessing it, you could in fact flush them. (This was much more exciting when the game came out in 1995.)

* In ''VideoGame/{{STALKER}} Shadow Of Chernobyl'', there are bathrooms, though your character never uses them. What's odd is that you can come across people sleeping, or at least lying down, but your character doesn't sleep a wink in the game (over the course of several days). If you search, you can find a rumour that says that some of the emissions are causing sleep deprivation and horrible nightmares, and that one of the items that is supposed to cure it is a bucket.
** The player still needs to eat though, and energy drinks can be consumed to replenish endurance.

bucket. The player characters still needs need to eat though, and energy drinks can be consumed to replenish endurance.endurance.
** {{Game Mod}}s, notably the ''Complete'' series, introduce sleep as a mechanic: you have a sleeping bag that you can use to sleep a selectable number of hours, both as a FastForwardMechanic and to replenish a hidden long-term fatigue meter. Stay up for too long, and your vision will start to gradually blur and swim, an effect that only gets cured by taking a nap or drinking a can of energy drink.

* It's surprising how often bathroom breaks don't come up in {{Dragonball Z}} since it has been established that they do in fact, need to do so, but it isn't even brought up. Goku never has to pee EVER even though he did have to in {{Dragonball}}, same with Krillin, Vegeta and the other humans. Gohan only had one or two instance(s) of him peeing, when he was just a 4 year old. There have been instances of Goten relieving himself, as well as Trunks, but besides that, no one needs to take a bathroom break. Ever. It can be excused with Piccolo, since he's a Namekian, but seriously, how was Vegeta able to hold it in for 3 days straight? Does he have an ACTUAL bottomless bladder? This is averted in Dragon Ball Z Broly: The Second Coming, because Trunks pees himself. However, besides that movie, which might not be canon, the bladders do not have a bottom.
