* 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.

* Very nearly happens to several characters in ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' in the episode dealing with the Watery Card. The card spirit itself is also shown to be very tempermental.
