** It should be noted that he can make his sword even stronger simply by absorbing more water. Hell, before one early battle, he absorbs all the water from an entire olympic-sized swimming pool, for crying out loud.

* ''Literature/TheQuestOfTheUnaligned'' features the shamais, who in addition to literal power over water also possess the power to influence minds "like water wearing down a rock" and are noted for being extremely hidebound and traditionalistic, much like water follows the channels it has worn for itself.

* Seaweed's power set in ''Webcomic/{{Gloomverse}}''.



* In ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'', water elementalists are healing-oriented, but their token non-healing spells fit the trope. The one among the protagonists has been shown using the classic water jet and having some control on bodies of water in the comic. The CoconutSuperpowers-laden webseries that demotes the former to light particules had her mention the possibility of generating an ice shield.

*** In America, where "most houses" probably refers to "all wooden houses"[[note]]And just about the only place where inches and miles are still used, which is a bit of a give-away[[/note]]. In Europe, 15cm of water moving at 6.5km/h[[note]]Same situation, converted[[/note]] is mostly going to knock down (wooden) sheds. Houses in Europe, especially the older ones, tend to be either brick or stone, with most or all of the internal walls being as strong as the external ones. The worst case scenario is likely one face of the house being knocked down, with the rest of the house still standing(which happened ''sometimes'' when a dam broke under the pressure of several meters of water). The described situation will have water hit any exposed surface like a hammer, but bringing down masonry takes more than one such hit. On top of that, in the Netherlands at least, gardens(with hedges, shrubs and maybe a small tree) are generally preferred to lawns, which absorbs a surprising amount of energy from an incoming wave(see mangroves for a large-scale version of this effect). The most likely result of a city being hit by such a flood would be streets becoming rivers and basements becoming pools. Lots of damage, but not to the structure of most houses.
