You attack with the stuff that makes up 60% of your body mass, covers 70% of the Earth's surface, and falls from the sky on an regular basis: '''[[color:navy:water]]'''. Just plain old reliable water. It may not scream "[[StuffBlowingUp explosive devastation]]" like [[PlayingWithFire fire]] and [[ShockAndAwe lightning]] do, but you can't trump water's versatility and availability. Flood 'em, drown 'em, frost 'em, steam 'em, wash 'em, whatever. And no, we don't use that water to [[HealingHands heal someone]], that's for the WhiteMage. Use it to ''kill'' someone! (Although in many cases, water is used as a healing element.)

In most cases, this power [[ElementalRockPaperScissors beats]] PlayingWithFire. A SubTrope of sorts is AnIcePerson; both can be very dangerous indeed, [[IceMagicIsWater if the two are combined]]. See KillItWithWater for cases where this is SuperEffective; SoftWater may still be in effect -- you just drown 'em. Often, WaterIsBlue.

There are also beings like Creator/MarvelComics' Hydro-Man and ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'''s Liquidator, who are sentient masses of water. Beating them can be tough as bullets and fists can simply punch through them to no effect while energy weapons' beams can be scattered though the substance. Furthermore, they usually change their shape at will, pass through anything that is not watertight and hit with concentrated blasts of their own mass. However, there are ways of defeating them: you can freeze or boil them, you can evaporate them, you can make them lose cohesion by hitting them with electricity to induce electrolysis[[note]]That is the effect of forcing the hydrogen and oxygen atoms making up water apart[[/note]], or you can contaminate their bodies with a solidifying material, like cement or bake mix, to immobilize them.

* Strangely, only Sabella in ''TrintonChronicles'' has any water-based powers. She also has one [[ShockandAwe ability]] that she tends to mix with her hydroblasts to make them especially deadly. Aside from her liquid control, she also has the added gift of [[AnIcePerson freezing water]].

If you came here looking for SplashDamage tropes, you might want to go to SplashDamageAbuse, and to ShockwaveStomp for situations where [[ShockwaveStomp the stomp]] isn't [[CutscenePowerToTheMax purely decorative]]).

* Water is one of the staple elements in the ''Franchise/TalesSeries''. Two of its most commonly seen spells are Splash, which dumps a torrent of water on the target, and Tidal Wave, which either drenches the entire battlefield with ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin or summons a swirling vortex that hits most of, if not all of the battlefield depending on the game.

Added DiffLines:

* Many {{Youkai}} in ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'', especially those who live underwater. Special mentions go to Ame-onna who either shoots water at enemies or summons a rain that lowers the enemies' speed as she cries, and Aragawa-no-aruji who shoots water missiles similar to Ame-onna above or creates a whirlpool that deals great damage to one of the enemies.
