* Jellyfish, anemones, and others of their phylum have a digestive system with only one orifice - a mouth - so they don't poop. Whatever they can't digest from their food, they vomit out instead.

->''"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|1984}}'' and no-one brushes their teeth, and in ''Film/LostInTranslation'', nothing happens. At all."''

* Much like the ''Series/LeaveItToBeaver'' scene below, the film ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', was the first American movie to show a toilet, implying people have to use it. This was SeriousBusiness at the time, no pun intended.

* Lampshaded in TheWellOfLostPlots, in which Thursday remarks that living in fiction has its ups and downs: people rarely eat breakfast but, apart from in Chaucer, there's not much farting either.

* Lampshaded in the new radio series of ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy''. The teleportation devices in Slartibartfast's [[ItRunsOnNonsensoleum Bistromatic Ship]] are in the bathroom cubicles. Just before they set off, Arthur says "You know, in all this time, I have never once [[SoundEffectBleep *flush*]]"

* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' There are no toilets, or pretty much anything to keep clean with.
** Well, not exactly. While there are no toilets explicitly in the game, there are several areas where you have a small room, a low stool, and a bucket directly behind it. A couple also have conveniently provided reading material on a nearby shelf, or lying next to the stool. Interestingly, none of these quaint little arrangements appears anywhere in actual inhabited buildings, they're all found in various dungeons or bandit hideouts.

** Present to this day in all editions is the fact that several creatures are explicitly described as having incredibly efficient metabolisms that simply digest everything they consume with no waste. The tarrasque and the various species of dragon are the most famous for this.

* In [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/4758047/chapters/10878935 this]] ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'' fanfic, Legolas is unconscious for days. Gimli later lampshades this trope by pointing out that it would have all been a lot more embarrassing if Legolas had had to go to the bathroom. Justified in that Legolas is an elf.

* Zig-zagged in ''WesternAnimation/MagicAdventuresOfMumfie'': The characters don't need the toilet after eating or drinking, and Mumfie doesn't wear underwear (WordOfGod said that having him do so would result in PeopleSitOnChairs). However, it's averted twice-when Fluffy the cloud leaks on Scarecrow's chair, and whenever Scarecrow falls, he [[BowelBreakingBricks poops straw]].
