* Elephants, rhinos and other large mammals (usually pachyderm types) regularly roll in mud to protect their skin from sun and insects. Pigs will roll in it, but aren't as filthy as people always think they are. Pigs lack sebaceous glands, and thus the mud serves the same purpose as sweat-as the water evaporates, it carries the heat away with it. The dirt merely serves as an adhesive to hold the water to their skin.

* Possibly the earliest movie example is the 1913 short ''A Muddy Romance'', in which the villain drains Echo Lake while the rest of the cast are on it in boats. They then have to be dragged to safety across the muddy lakebed. The whole film is also an example of ThrowItIn: Mack Sennett, hearing that Echo Lake was being drained, sent his actors, writers and cameramen to film it, and came up with the storyline en route.

May be used as BodyPaint. Sub-trope of CoveredInGunge - if it's anything other than mud, it goes there. Not to be confused with ThePigPen, a character who could be covered in either mud or something equally dirty so often that it's a matter of routine (no special explanation needed for why he's so muddy ''today''), and usually seems content with this situation. The TropeNamer for ThePigPen was thoroughly covered in dirt, but even in his case at least it only was dry dirt rather than mud.
