* Averted in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' and ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword''. Whenever Link gets wet, his hair and outfit will get a bit darker and he'll be dripping for a few seconds before fading to normal.

* As seen in the page image, on ''WesternAnimation/ToddWorld'', when the characters are wet, their hair does not stick down, nor do their clothes show any sign of wetness.

* ''Anime/{{Bakugan}}'': In the episode ''Dan and Drago'', Dan [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-bvfUivhvU&feature=related#t=4m20s runs through the river]] to retrieve Drago. He's not wet when he's back on shore frolicking with Drago, and then [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-bvfUivhvU&feature=related#t=5m37s loses his footing and falls back in the river]].

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' seems to change the effect of water depending on episode. In the tropical Hoenn, Ash is shivering, sneezing and wrapped up in a towel after taking his clothes off after being hit by a wave on the beach, while in ''Anime/{{Pokemon 2000}}'' Misty goes swimming fully clothed in freezing water and doesn't seem cold in the slightest. Likewise, a late Johto episode had the characters battle underwater in a pool, where they go in fully clothed, and don't appear wet in the slightest neither after getting out OR while in the pool.

* This is true for the ''Wet Side Story'' characters in ''Film/TeenBeachMovie'', and the fact that it applies to Mack and Brady after a while is one of the first signs that the movie is a FisherKingdom.

* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', Riku and Sora come out of the ocean just as dry as they went in. Sora's hair also is still as [[AnimeHair spiky]] as it was when it went in.
** Actually, this is quite common throughout the series. Each character who falls into water comes out dry. Even in [[{{Disney/TheLittleMermaid}} Atlantica]] and [[{{Disney/Pinocchio}} Prankster's Paradise]], does Sora go into water and appear dry on the surface, despite being a merman in the former. And at one point in [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Port Royal]], we get to see him unconscious with half of his body in water... and he is STILL dry.

* While waiting at the docks in ''VideoGame/JurassicParkTheGame'', Nima and Miles are standing in heavy tropical rainfall, and given the events of the film it's likely that Gerry Harding was still outside when treating the ''Triceratops''. Yet once the rain stops, it's impossible to tell it ever happened.

** In the sequel, Lela and Tanner run through a shower early on. The water just sort of avoids them.

* In ''TheMagiciansNephew'', people travel to and from the Wood Between the Worlds through pools, but they always emerge dry. However, when they try jumping into the pools without wearing the correct magic rings (the ones that transport people out of the Wood), they just get their feet wet.

* ''[[VideoGame/FatalFrame Fatal Frame 5]]'': Averted. Whenever the characters get wet, their clothes and hair are affected quite noticeably. Furthermore, being wet increases the character's vulnerability to ghost attacks, so the player is cautioned to remain dry whenever possible.

They also do not dry off within a few seconds: it takes using an item to restore dryness. Furthermore, being wet increases the character's vulnerability to ghost attacks, so the player is cautioned to remain dry whenever possible.
