* In ''BaldursGate'' the cloakwood Mine was abandoned when the miners dug into a riverbed. Years later the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Iron Throne]] somehow got the hole sealed and the water pumped out, to resume the mining with illegal slaves. After killing the local leader in charge of the mine, you take his key to the seal and then you can figure out the rest...

* Unintentionally used in ''Discworld/GoingPostal''. During a fire at the Post Office, the rainwater tank on its roof (which acts as a counterweight for its freight elevator) breaks free and falls into the fire, causing a massive steam explosion that kills [[spoiler: the golem Anghammarad]]. It's noted that [[MadeOfIndestructium neither water nor fire would have been enough on its own]].

* Used by {{Rango}} (accidentally) to take out the hawk. Because it's empty, he drops the tower itself on his enemy. [[spoiler:He ''does'' use water to solve his problems at the climax, but the watertower's not involved.]]

A common method used in order to KillItWithWater. See that water tower on top of the building? Well, it turns out these are - ahahaha - filled with water. Knock down the water tower, and a huge torrent of the stuff will come crashing down below. It will displace and pummel any living thing beneath it, and extinguish fire extremely quickly. In a fantastic setting, water-weak creatures will often be wiped out by it. [[MST3KMantra Try not to think too hard]] about why a water-weak opponent would choose to fight anywhere near a water tower.

* In ''VideoGame/TheMatrixPathOfNeo'' during the 'Rooftop Rescue' Mission you can blow up or shoot out the top part of a water tower so that the spilling water slow's down an Agent.
