* The former Ride/{{Kongfrontation}} attraction at Ride/UniversalStudios had a broken fire hydrant shooting off water down in the streets, to show off the damage King Kong had done there.
* A fire hydrant also gets broken and shoots water during the WesternAnimation/HeyArnold sequence in [[Ride/JimmyNeutronsNicktoonBlast Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast]], a water effect would then be used to make the riders feel as if they're getting sprinkled by it.

** This would occur in the also-defunct ''Ride/TwisterRideItOut'' attraction when a car gets pulled forward by the tornado, dislodging a fire hydrant in the process.

In media when an out of control car runs over a fire hydrant the inevitable result is a geyser of water that [[InstantIndexJustAddWater instantly adds]] both drama and excitement to the scene. In reality the ''most'' likely result is a good deal of front end damage and a bill to repair the broken hydrant, but in a non-trivial amount of cases the car '''will''' wind up as an aquarium. What determines if this trope is ArtisticLicense or TruthInTelevision is the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_Hydrant#Construction design of the hydrant]]. Hydrants known as "wet barrel" bring highly pressurized water all the way up into the part that [[TemptingFate sticks above ground]]. Hydrants known as "dry barrel" keep the vital valve equipment many feet underground, which are then opened via a long shaft.

* One of VideoGame/PacMan's special move in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros for Wii U and 3DS'' makes him summon a fire hydrant which then sends short spurts of water on its sides, pushing the characters on the way. If Pac-Man stands atop the hydrant, a little geyser will push him upward. This move is based on the 1984 arcade game ''VideoGame/PacLand'' in which hydrants are obstacles, though the upward geyser is completely new to this game. A bit subverted as the water spurts if the Hydrant is ''not'' destroyed. Of course all of this does not make any sense and is just for [[VideoGamePhysics the sake of the game mechanics]].
