* Related to the supernatural examples listed above, graveyards are often built next to a stream, and you can generally tell where the people it was built for lived by crossing over that running water. (iron fences are a secondary favorite)

* Water cannons for riot control. Though it's less "Kill the with water", and more "hose them down with enough pressure to make them fall".

* Water cannons for riot control. Though it's less "Kill the with water", and more "hose them down with enough pressure to make them fall". In spite of its non-lethal intent, the sheer volume of water and the pressures at which it is delivered is extremely capable of injury (there are numerous reports of people [[EyeScream losing their eyes due to injury from a water cannon]]). There are also reports of at least one man who was killed by a water cannon, suffering a traumatic head injury when he was hit in the face by a blast of water. This is more an example of the 'pressure' version of water lethality.

* Many creatures in ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'' have skin and teeth made of something like sandstone, which is extremely tough, but very susceptible to ''melting'' from exposure to water, to the point that there are plants that use storing water as a survival mechanism.

* In ''Fanfic/TwoStep'', Nick deals with [[TheJuggernaut an evolved Tank capable of punching train wagons like they're yoga balls and running as fast as a horse]] by shooting the ice under its feet so it falls in the water, [[AwesomenessByAnalysis correctly assuming that]] [[SuperDrowningSkills a creature that powerful would be too dense to swim]].



** Subverted with Primal Groudon. While it's a Ground/Fire type that would normally take 4x damage from water, its ability summons Harsh Sunlight that makes ''all'' water-type attacks evaporate.

Though if you send out a Mon with weather-cancelling abilities like Golduck, who gets STAB on Water attacks...

* Averted in a crossover between Webcomic/TheWotch and AccidentalCentaurs with, you guessed it, the wicked witch. No one ever thinks of using water against her. When it IS brought up Lenny points out that she's already used to it, so it wouldn't have worked anyway.

* Crocodiles usually kill large land animals such as wildebeest by dragging them underwater and holding them there until they stop moving.
* While they don't necessarily hold them under long enough to ''kill'' them, kangaroos pursued by dingoes retreat to watering-holes and defend themselves by pushing the wild dogs below the surface.

** This is actually a frequent cause of death when elderly victims of senile dementia die at home during hot weather. Feeling hot, they drink water to cool off, but thanks to short-term memory loss they ''keep on'' drinking glass after glass, forgetting how much they've had already.
