->''"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.

* 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." We do.

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]].

* 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* ]]."

* The StephenKing short story "Umney's Last Case" features a distraught author trying to muscle out his most famous creation so that he can enter the world of fiction and live without pain. He succeeds, and while the character is getting used to the real world, he wets himself because he's never actually ''had'' to use the bathroom before.

* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Bears may shit in the woods but Tributes, apparently, do not. It wouldn't be so noticeable, except that Collins takes pains to make everything about the Hunger Games and the horrors of the arena seem dirty and uncomfortable and horrible, so in the first book at least it's a glaring omission. They do, however, urinate.
** Except for when they maybe don't. Peeta spends several days incapacitated in the cave, unable to leave, so one wonders how he takes care of that business. Or when he was hidden by the riverbank. Same goes for Katniss during the days she spent sleeping off the tracker jacker venom. Both their outfits must have been in need of some serious washing...

* ''Simon Bloom: The Gravity Keeper'' in which the main characters find out their adventures are being recorded down by a Narrator using a machine that writes down everything that happens. One of them asks whether the machine records when they poop, to which the Narrator replies, [[EveryoneKnowsThat "Of course not!]] [[ConservationOfDetail That wouldn't be interesting."]]
