Whenever a character accidentally falls into a body of water, especially a stagnant one such as a swamp or pond, expect them to come up and discover a leech - or more - attached to them somewhere. This is usually followed by an [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl ear-splitting scream]]. Often PlayedForLaughs, but can be used to induce {{Squick}} in the viewer or show the harsh reality of the work's setting, particularly as a subversion of CoolClearWater or SkinnyDipping.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'', Bloo gets stung by bees and unwittingly rubs himself with poison ivy. He drowns out the itching by splashing water from a nearby lake on his face, but ends up with leeches on his face, which he doesn't notice.
