* There is a [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9812307/1/The-Many-Worlds-Interpretation crossover fanfic]] in assembly at Website/FanfictionDotNet, where the slightly maladjusted Doctor Sheldon Cooper and friends from ''TheBigBangTheory'' are inevitably going to end up in the city of Ankh-Morpork on the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}''. Lavatory technology on the Discworld lags some 200 years behind modern California. A hole in the ground and a septic tank are considered posh. And Sheldon Cooper is... Sheldon Cooper.

* In ''HectorBadgeOfCarnage'' Hector starts the game by having to fish out something out of a toilet in the prison cell of a police station which while not 'public' fits the trope completely. After many other disgusting bathroom jokes and puzzles, episode 3 has you interacting with the portable public toilet at an outdoor festival.

* In ''Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey'', you don't see the bathroom itself, but apparently the ''Red Sprite'''s bathroom gets so disgusting that Kanbari, "God of the Privy", invades. After you defeat him, he chides the crew for not taking better care of their facilities.

* In an early issue of 'Comicbook/{{Excalibur}}'', Kitty Pryde needs to answer a call of nature while being carried by Meggan across the Atlantic. They spot a freighter and land on it so she can go to the restroom, but the place is disgustingly filthy.

This trope of course comes from RealLife, as anyone who's ever had to go at a rest stop, a park bathroom etc. can attest. Even an ill-maintained flush toilet is extremely disgusting, but pretty much any toilet without flush technologies is going to be worse (even Porta-Potties tend to be a borderline case). Outhouses and latrines were once a familiar and disgusting part of everyone's life, and while they are now rare in the industrialized world, they're still necessary in a situations like wilderness camping or a [[TheDungAges Third World village]]; therefore, the outhouse isn't something that will ever become so [[TechMarchesOn obsolete]] that people [[ForgottenTrope entirely forget]] such a nauseating (but necessary!) phenomenon.

Part of the reason this trope exists is a form of the {{GIFT}}. While ''clearly'' not on the internet; the idea that anonymity and lack of consequences/responsibility leads to [[JerkAss complete asshattery]] is still demonstrated. People naturally expect privacy in the restroom, and public toilets are not cleaned by ''them'', so they feel less guilty for trashing them, scrawling insults on the wall, or [[BathroomStallOfOverheardInsults insulting their peers]]. And the least said about "[[HandInTheHole glory holes]]" cut in the partition walls, the better. It is fading, but there's no better way to ensure the janitor will hate you than ruining the bathroom.

** In the Sorcery! miniseries, a public toilet in a castle full of orcs is not only described, but illustrated. The graffiti in the illustration contains a useful clue, but [[SchmuckBait searching the toilet makes you sick as a dog.]]
