* Averted in the first episode of ''Series/SpartacusGodsOfTheArena'', as Batiatus is shown taking a poop in a Roman public toilet, all while having a chat with Solonius, no less.



* One scene in episode seven of ''Series/{{Vikings}}'' Ragnar Lothbrok is seen standing up from behind some bushes whilst talking to his comrades.
* The very first scare in ''Series/PennyDreadful'' is when an unseen menace snatches up a woman in the London slums and drags her out a window. She was using the indoor privy at the time.
* In ''Series/TheWire'':
** Avon and Stringer finally make a visit to the Pit. But the cops fail to photograph the visit because Santangelo is relieving himself on the other side of the roof.
** In season 3, Kima Greggs is shown coming out of the bushes while having a late night meeting with [=McNulty=].

* ''VideoGame/ArkSurvivalEvolved'' is a notable aversion. All living things, including player characters, will periodically generate poop, which drops to the ground behind them. It can be picked up and used as a resource.

* Lampshaded in ''The Second {{Literature/Foundation}}'', where a girl sneaks aboard a ship and hides there, like she read and saw a lot in popular culture. Then she realizes that the books failed to mention some things, and she cannot remain in her hiding place for long....

Sure, [[RealLife real people and animals in everyday life]] might, but you're not likely to see a fictional character going to the bathroom [[note]] Despite the title, this includes peeing. [[/note]]. 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?]]

** In ''Film/SecretWindow, Secret Garden'', an even more embarrassing variant occurs: The [[MostWritersAreWriters author]] has to rush out of the bathroom to take a phone call and thinks to himself that, forget pooping, fictional characters are never depicted ''wiping'' either...

* ''VideoGame/BlackAndWhite's'' treatment of this trope is too weird not to mention. The Creature starts out needing to poop like any animal, but if you slap it enough times when it does it, it somehow learns not to poop. The biological need just magically goes away permanently without any side effects. Now if only that worked on humans...

* In the 2015 revival of DangerMouse, Professor Squawkencluck is seen entering the women's privy just seconds before being assaulted...by octopus tentacles.

** The simplest answer is most often the correct one: going to a toilet isn't important enough to be written down.

* In the second ''Legend of Jig Dragonslayer'' book, a magically created monster dies because the person who created it didn't think to fully implement its digestive tract - the two-headed snake could eat, but not excrete. One of Jig's colleagues admits that this is a terrible way to go.

* ''Moshi Monsters'': Zigzagged. Your monster never needs the bathroom and you can't make bathrooms, and your Moshlings never use the bathroom either, but a toilet is seen in a pile of rubbish in the mission "Super Weapon Showdown", Simon Growl mentions your monster can sit in the seat of his airplane at the back, by the toilets, and in one of the magazines, poop is outright shown. Also, Humphrey is said to dislike the smell of manure in the morning.

* This is true for pretty much any video game. While toilets may be present in the game world, your character can run, shoot, and kick ass for hours or days at a time, without eating, drinking, resting or taking a piss/shit. Many go even further by not including any bathrooms even in places where they logically should be present.

* ''Website/{{Neopets}}'': Zigzagged. You can put toilets into the Neo Homes, but pets are never seen using them. Petpets, it's been established, do use bathrooms as it's one of their needs in "Petpetsitter" in addition to litter boxes being available for them. Also, some baby Neopets wear diapers and some don't, and you never have to change their diapers. And to top it all off, for the longest time there was no toilet paper in Neopia.
