* ''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]].

* Happened in ''LightNovel/GoblinSlayer'' where the party faced an [[GeniusBruiser Ogre]]. Not mere water magic, but [[spoiler:a portal scroll linked to the bottom of the sea, resulting in a water jet so powerful, it cleaved the monstrosity in one shot.]]

...until, in desperation, you throw your bottled '''Water''' at it, causing it to turn to dust instantly. What just happened? [[FramedForHeroism Did something else disintegrate it]]? Was it really a pushover this whole time and you just need to take a refresher course somewhere besides the ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy?

Unlike KillItWithFire, this strategy doesn't tend to be viable if you're fighting an opponent who doesn't specifically have a KryptoniteFactor to water... ''[[GiantWallOfWateryDoom unless you use an unbelievable amount of it]]'', then it's rather effective. Or you could try [[KillItWithIce making it colder]]. You can even just [[AbsurdlySharpBlade increase the water pressure!]] Or if your enemy is a demon or vampire, then you will most likely need to use ''[[HolyHandGrenade holy]]'' water instead of regular water.

* While the TalesSeries usually has "water" as a separate element from Ice, ''VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia'' has a rather unique take on this trope - there is actually no "[[LightEmUp Light]]" element in the game's element system. Instead, all light spells like Brilliant Lance, Judgment, and Ray deal water damage - but this actually makes sense in-universe. The sea is worshipped as sacred in the world of Tales of Legendia, thus it makes sense that the spells that act as "Holy" would be using the power of the sea. Then FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realize that spells like Maelstrom, Spread, Aqua Laser, and Tidal Wave, traditional water aligned spells, are now in the same class as "Holy" spells. Thus, this means that you are literally killing the forces of darkness by splashing them to death - or if you prefer, washing away their evil.

* The tenth book of the ''Be an Interplanetary Spy'' 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]]''.
