** The Red Court vampire Arianna used water magic to counter Harry's fire magic during their duel in ''Literature/{{Changes}}. [[spoiler: Which did work until Harry revealed that he, as the Winter Knight, now also could use [[KillItWithIce Ice magic]]. She was quickly [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaled with dozen of icicles]]]].

* He isn't killed, but this happens to [[ColonelBadass Colonel]] [[MrFanservice Roy]] [[PlayingWithFire Mustang]] of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' at least three times over the course of the series. His enemies get him completely soaked, rendering him unable to use his [[FingerSnapLighter ignition gloves]]. HilarityEnsues.
-->''Riza'': Colonel, [[LampshadeHanging you're useless under the rain!]]
** Subverted ONCE when he's soaked and can't use his gloves. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Cue him cutting his transmutation circle into his hand, separating hydrogen from oxygen via alchemy and using a lighter to go let hell break loose.]] Justified by the fact that all he needs is his circle and a spark, which is usually provided by said gloves.



* The tenth book of the ''Literature/BeAnInterplanetarySpy'' Literature/ChooseYourOwnAdventure series put you up against a trio of SpacePirates who were, essentially, lethally allergic to water. The end result was the protagonist forcing the leader of the trio to surrender by ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome threatening him with a tiny puddle of water]]''.

** Possibly one of the more famous Scottish ones is "The Tale of Tam O'Shanter" who, after being discovered by witches has to cross the "keystone of the bridge" in order to escape. He makes it, but his horse gets her tail pulled off. I think the American version of this is Sleepy Hollow, with Ichabod Crane?
* Literature/TheBible uses it a couple of times. [[ApocalypseHow The Great Flood]] and [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Moses and the parting of the Red Sea]] are rather well known.
* Ireland's Kelpie is a fey that takes on the guise of a black horse and kills people by taking them on a wild ride before drowning them, then eating their livers.
* This is why you don't mess with or mistreat [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent mermaids]].

* In the ''Literature/KnownSpace'' series by Creator/LarryNiven, Martians were spectacularly vulnerable to water. There was a short in which explorers sent to Mars discovered an ornately constructed water well... and realized that it was used as a crematorium. ''That'' vulnerable.

* Season 5 of Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack has this for why Piscatella no longer works in men's prison. [[spoiler: He killed the prisoner who beat [Piscatella's] boyfriend by handcuffing him to pipes and scalding him with a boiling hot shower.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' features a slime-like alien species called the Limax that survive in hot temperature and can be easily be killed by water. However, despite their weakness to water, the Limax are still able to eat beings who have water in them. For example, one of them ate a fly. They also planned on devouring an entire neighborhood of senior citizens and there was no plans to dehydriate them in any way.

* A handful of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' have some unfortunate type combo of [[PlayingWithFire Fire]], [[DishingOutDirt Ground and Rock]], which makes them 4x vulnerable to Water attacks.

to:

* A handful of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' have some unfortunate type combo of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'': Water is strong against three types: it extinguishes [[PlayingWithFire Fire]], erodes [[DishingOutDirt Rock,]] and dampens Ground. The series is fond of pairing Rock and Ground and Rock]], types on a single Pokémon, which makes them 4x vulnerable to take quadruple damage from Water attacks.(and Grass) instead of the normal double.

* In the ''Literature/EnchantedForestChronicles'', wizards can be (temporarily) melted by splashing them with water, mixed with soap and lemon juice. The discovery was completely by accident, and nobody's completely sure why it works, but it takes all three elements to do the job; in a later story, Prince Mendanbar forgets the lemon, which just results in wet, soapy wizards, until Cimorene reminds him.
** This was discovered by Alianora, Cimorene's fellow (and actually captive) Princess while the two were cleaning. This trope is also reversed when [[spoiler: the Stone Prince throws water on the wizard who is holding the witch Morwen hostage. The wizard melts; Morwen, who practices clean living, does not]].
