* In one issue of the Creator/CartoonNetwork comic, [[SpaceGhostCoastToCoast Zorak]], [[RunningGag fed up with constantly being blasted by Space Ghost]], decides turnabout is fair play and steals Ghost's gauntlets while the host is in the shower. Before leaving Zorak pulls this prank.

Finally, yes, this can happen even with electric showers if the toilet and shower are on the same pipes, because the drop in pressure from the flush causes the shower water to run more slowly through the resistor, and consequently it heats up more. In this case, faucets won't cause this effect, as the pressure drop from them is insignificant by comparison.



* In places with electric showers, a plumbing network that has the toilet and the shower in the same manifold (which is doable but considered incorrect for reasons that go farther than thermal comfort) will cause this, either because suddenly the shower's resistor is heating up less water at a time, or because the flow gets so low the heating is disabled altogether.

In this case, faucets can't achieve the trope, since the loss pressure on the system caused by them is irrelevant compared to a flush.

TruthInTelevision as most shower valves mix hot and cold water to achieve the desired temperature so anything that diverts either hot or cold water will result in a sharp temperature shift in the opposite direction. Note that this was always a regional trope as it depends upon the central water heater practice common in Western plumbing design but not always found in other cultures. Rapidly becoming a bit of a DiscreditedTrope in RealLife since the introduction of pressure-balanced shower valves specifically designed to prevent this from happening. Such "anti-scald" shower valves are even required by law in some places, especially in commercial buildings like apartments, hotels, and dormitories. Nevertheless, if you have the (mis)fortune of being in a house or building with old plumbing, this trope is still doable.
