Added DiffLines:

* A special Bad Moon adventure in ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' parodies this: you're looking at a toilet in the Haunted Bathroom when you suddenly realize that you've never emptied your bladder, ever. You don't get a chance to "go" right there, though, as you're interrupted by [[Franchise/HarryPotter a voyeuristic ghost girl who died on that very toilet]]. This gives you a PottyDance effect that boosts item drops.

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': Averted normally, and taken UpToEleven in one Kero Zero chapter. [[spoiler:Basically, the mothership taking our heroes to Earth starts rationing all food and water when its onboard farms fail to produce any crop - our heroes wind up holding it all in for a week when they can't even use the toilet, then desperation forces them to dump it all ''all over the onboard farms'', inadvertently fertilising the soil and allowing it to function again. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny They don't actually touch the food produced for some time, though.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' clarifies that the Undead do not, in fact, have to poop (courtesy of the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Excrement Smeared Ashes]]). Which makes sense, as the game also reveals that your LifeMeter is the undeads' and unkindleds' [[HeroicWillpower will to live]] ([[{{Determinator}} and not a measure of their actual physical condition]]). As [[HealingPotion Estus]] is that will in liquid form, it makes sense that there'd be nothing, er, coming out the other end after drinking it. FlavorText suggests that at least some undead who associate pooping [[WhatHaveIBecome with their former lives]] and [[{{Squick}} wish for "that smell" again]].

** It's also implied that [[TheNeedless the Gems]]would still need to use the bathroom [[EatingOptional if they were to eat or drink anything]].

* This one is so ingrained in culture that when the crew of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' had to submit an episode description to the TV guides for a pivotal episode without revealing anything important, they settled on "We finally see inside Steven's bathroom." And so we do: [[spoiler:it becomes the living space of recurring villain Peridot after she's finally caught and forced to work together with the Crystal Gems]].

->''"Well, I feel that films -- the film industry -- has increasingly failed to reflect reality as people live it. No-one goes for a piss in ''Franchise/StarWars'', you can watch the whole of ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' and no-one brushes their teeth, and in ''Film/LostInTranslation'', nothing happens. At all."''

* Averted and played with in ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostBusters'' and ''Slimer! And the Real Ghostbusters''. In the Real Ghostbusters, while chasing after a ghost, Winston falls out of a doorway and toilet paper rolls falls out as well. Peter remarks, "Should have thought of that before we left the Firehouse." In an episode of ''Slimer!'', Slimer goes into a restroom, slamming a stall door behind him. A flush is soon heard, and he then exits the stall by going right through the door, leaving slime on the door in his wake. Even though by all rights, ghosts shouldn't need to use the restroom.

Sure, real people and animals in everyday life might, but you're not likely to see a fictional character going to the bathroom. This would detract from the plotline, and besides, nobody really wants to see that sort of thing. [[ConservationOfDetail If something's not crucial to the story, why include it?]]

Added DiffLines:

* Luffy's first question to anything unusual in ''Manga/OnePiece'' is "Do you poop?" The only time anything's ''answered'' that is when [[DemBones Brook]] admitted he does.


Added DiffLines:

** It's sort of a running joke that circumstances keep forcing Steven to pee outside.

* [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in Donaya Haymond's ''Literature/LegendsOfLaconia'' series. In ''Waking Echoes'', the prison cell Ty spends three days in has a toilet, and in ''Bite Me'' Matthew asks Dianne if her [[OurVampiresAreDifferent father]] goes to the bathroom, saying he's always wondered about those in his [[UnusualEuphemism condition]].
