* Webcomic/WilfredaTheWannaBeWitch: Parodied and deconstructed. Victor, one of Wilfreda's more skeptical classmates, tries to prove she's not a witch by throwing water on her going off the ol "witches melt in water" mythos. After he splashes her however, Wilfreda counters that that rule only applies to ''wicked'' witches.

sorry about that
* Virtually everything native to the world of ''Webcomic/{{Astray3}}''. Water is an acid (technically) in real life, but to them a gulp of water is like a gulp of etching solution would be to us.

* Spraying lava fluros in ''VideoGame/{{Vessel}}'' with water is an effective way of killing them if they're causing trouble.

* Although it never really becomes a plot point, it's stated in ''Literature/AlienInASmallTown'' that water is poisonous to [[SiliconBasedLife Jan,]] at least if taken internally. When Paul grows a garden of Jannite crops, he has to make sure they're very tough ones that can ''survive'' regular dousings with rain.

* While for Earth-based life water is essential hypothetical aliens who ran on biochemistries different to ours -those, for example, that lived in a planet so cold that liquid ammonia replaced water (at those gelid temperatures frozen solid)- could see it as venomous. An even more dramatic example are those that came from a world as Titan, Saturn's largest moon, where rock-solid ice[[note]]Surface temperatures of -180 C[[/note]] replaces rock and its equivalent of lava is liquid water -for them we'd be made in a good part of molten rock and we'd drink and bath on it-.

* Obviously, very effective to kill a fire. It does not work with all types of fire, though, relying largely on the combustible that fuels it - adding water to a grease fire will just create a fireball (as the water instantly boils into steam and sprays the oil into a fine mist), burning magnesium can split water apart into hydrogen and oxygen (which are both highly flammable), and an electric fire can cause electricity to arc through the water extending it and even electrocuting the poor fellow who attempted that[[note]]Pure (distillated) water has poor conductivity, but the dissolved salts and ions tap water has increase a lot its conductivity[[/note]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', Beast Boy discovers that water is the most effective weapon against the BigBad's army of mooks, which turns them into tofu. Cue epic super soaker gunplay!

-->Ser Reynard sent word to Ser Tywin above, offering terms. But Tywin Lannister did not honor Ser Reynard's offer with a reply. Instead he commanded that the mines be sealed. With pick and axe and torch, his own miners brought down tons of stone and soil, burying the great gates to the mines until there was no way in and no way out. Once that was done, he turned his attention to the small, swift stream that fed the crystalline blue pool beside the castle from which Castamere took its name. It took less than a day to dam the stream and only two to divert it to the nearest mine entrance. The earth and stone that sealed the mine had no gaps large enough to let a squirrel pass, let alone a man... but the water found its way down. Ser Raynard had taken more than three hundred men, women, and children into the mines, it is said. Not a one emerged. A few of the guards assigned to the smallest and most distant of the mine entrances reported hearing faint screams and shouts coming from beneath the earth one night, but by daybreak the stones had gone silent once again.
