* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. Tarrant and [[BigBad Servalan]] are [[LockedInARoom trapped on a planet]] by SentientSand which feeds on their cellular energy. The WeaksauceWeakness of the sand is discovered when Servalan [[TheSociopath of all people]] sheds a tear. Fortunately the crew of ''Scorpio'' have a similar EurekaMoment, and make it rain by [[Atmosphere Abuse diving their spacecraft through the atmosphere]], giving them enough time to escape before the sand regenerates.

* Several enemies in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' will be instantly killed if they enter water too deep to wade in - Bokoblins, Moblins, and all varieties of Stal- enemies can't swim at all (and for the latter, even throwing their skulls into water will suffice). However, this is not universal - Lizalfos are capable swimmers, and Hinoxes are surprisingly agile in water.

* [[BlobMonster The Ceruleans]] from ''Anime/KemonoFriends'' turn into rock once they are sprinkled with water. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as they are made of [[GreenRocks Sandstar]], which itself is expelled from the interior of a volcano.

* 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. Additionally, since it is of TheFourElements, it's more powerful than most of the other Card Spirits. [[spoiler: So with some pointers from Tomoyo and Kero, Sakura solves the deal by invoking "KillItWithIce" and locking Watery into a walk-in freezer.]]

* [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable Part Four]] of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' has Red Hot Chili Pepper, a stand made of electricity. Since it becomes faster and stronger the more electricity it has access to, it's arguably one of the most powerful stands in the entire series, when circumstances align in its user's favor. However, since salt water is an extremely good conductor, it dissolves completely when immersed in the ocean.[[note]]It can reform itself afterwards, but it seems to be severely weakened after doing so.[[/note]]

** Also, in ''TeenTitansTroubleInTokyo'', they captured Saico-Tek, who attacked their home; during interrogation, he set off the water sprinkler and disappeared. Beast Boy made a joke that he wasn't waterproof, that no one took seriously. It was later revealed that Saico-Tek, as well as the other colorful villains they faced during their visit to Tokyo, were made of ink, [[BrickJoke so he did pretty much get killed by water.]]

* ''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.

** 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]]]].

* This is the easiest way to get rid of [[GreyGoo the Tarr]] in VideoGame/SlimeRancher, either by spraying them with water from your Vacupack or throwing them into the Slime Sea.

* 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]].
