* 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.
