* This randomly happens to ''VideoGame/ChibiRobo'' after recharging and trying to unplug. His sidekick Telly Vision keeps a count of how many times this happens.

* This randomly happens to ''VideoGame/ChibiRobo'' after recharging and trying to unplug. His sidekick Telly Vision keeps a count of how many times this happens. Since Chibi-Robo is... well... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin chibi]], it is a saucer plate-sized washtub.
** Also one of [[RunningGag the many ways]] Telly's song is interrupted. He even looks around for the cause incredulously.

* ''LightNovel/YokuWakaruGendaiMahou'': the main character's only magical power is turning any kind of magical spell into basins. Expect a head to be on the washtub's trajectory more often than not.

* This happens during a "game" in ''[[{{Fireball}} Fireball Charming]]''.
* This happens in the first episode of ''{{Maburaho}}''. Two of them drop on Kazuki's head while his friends continue to talk about how worthless he is as both a magic user and a student at the school.

* It's a regular trap in the ''{{Deception}}'' series - doesn't do a lot of damage (generally), but enrages the victim, forcing him to charge towards you, even if he would otherwise act cautiously and run away/keep his distance. Useful for luring such cautious foes into the REALLY nasty traps...

* In ''AnimalCrossing City Folk'', when you visit the fortune-teller Katrina, she reads the stars... specifically, [[CirclingBirdies the ones that circle your head after she makes a washtub fall on it]].
* In ''{{Suikoden IV}}'', your hero can listen to characters' confessions and decide whether to 'forgive' or 'punish' them. Forgiveness entails dumping confetti on them from a hidden door; punishment results in either water, buckets, or a washtub falling instead.

* In the ''SnowboardKids'' games, one of the items you can use drops washtubs (or "frying pans", as they're called in the U.S. versions' manuals) on all your opponents, [[SquashedFlat squashing them flat for a short time]].

* ''GodHand'' has a [[LimitBreak God Reel/Roulette]] with customizable outcomes, but two constant choices; one of those two choices sends a Washtub falling on top of Gene's head and damaging him. This is ridiculous since it actually deals some damage, not to mention the God Reel/Roulette is NOT random, so you would have to [[ViolationOfCommonSense actively scroll to this outcome and CHOOSE it for it to happen]]. Though, it's in Japan only; it's absent in the US version.

* A common trap in the ''IzunaLegendOfTheUnemployedNinja'' series. It resets your map for the floor you're on, forcing players to explore the level again.
* In ''{{Hamtaro}}: Ham-Hams Unite!'', jarring the broken television in the Ruins (actually a garbage dump) will cause an unusually small washtub, albeit one referred to as a "sink" by the game, to fall off of it and bonk Hamtaro on the head.

* In ''Game/ManaKhemia'', one of the effects of Jess's Sky Present spell can be a washtub dropping on the enemy, dealing mediocre damage but leaving the enemy immediately stunned.

* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2Substance'', one of the ways to defeat the bonus boss [[KingMook Mechagenola]] is by tricking him into destroying shelf beams, dropping a giant washtub on his head.
* Several of these try to crush the heroine in ''EryisAction'' on the very first game screen. Yes, while she's still in her own home.
