* In ''Ride/PopeyeAndBlutosBilgeRatBarges'' at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's Islands of Adventure]], while this is most ''definitely'' averted in the case of the riders, Popeye and Olive Oyl come out of the events of the attraction completely dry, despite all that they had been subjected to.

Whenever a cartoon character falls, jumps or is pushed into water, they get right back out without any visible signs of wetness. Often the character will be fully immersed underwater � and their clothes will remain pristine and flowing. They don't need to change their clothes, nor dry themselves with a towel, nor do they seem the least bit uncomfortable in what should be sopping wet clothing. In Real Life, clothing generally tends to be very heavy, cumbersome and uncomfortable when it's wet. Most times if they do show off these signs, they're most likely to be plot related.

* In the 1958 film version of ''CatOnAHotTinRoof'', Maggie goes out to the pouring rain and gets her hair soaking wet, but the next time we see her, it's perfectly dry and styled.
* One of the (many) complaints about ''TheLastAirbender'' was that in the opening scene when Katara accidentally drops water on Sokka's head, he looks almost totally dry even as he's angrily advancing on her seconds later.

* Averted in ''MetalGearSolid2''. Apart from swimming, walking on a wet floor makes your character leave footprints, and walking through rain makes him leave drops of water with a little bit of animation to show it's wet.

* Averted greatly in ''VideoGame/TombRaiderAnniversary''. The developers not only made sure Lara got wet from falling in the water but gave her realistic wet T-shirts to boot. Of course, there was [[FanService a particular reason]] for the designers to pay attention to this.
** Not to mention she could also get dirt on her (which washed off).
** In the original series, Lara looked completely dry in the first three games when emerging from water. However, starting with ''Franchise/TombRaider: The Last Revelation'', she would drip when emerging from water due to the improved graphics engine.
