In {{Hot Springs Episode}}s, the female characters will catch the male characters walking in, spying on them, etc. One of the first thing the former will do is throw wooden buckets, wash tubs, or any bathing tool, at them, given those are pretty common items in a hot spring.

Compare BathKick and DropTheWashtub.

* Used frequently in ''RanmaOneHalf'': the resident DirtyOldMan Happosai has his own variation called hermit crab technique in which he throws several buckets into the air and uses his small size and speed to FlashStep between them and attack from inside them as they fly past his opponent.
* Kagato was on the receiving end of this in the ''TenchiMuyo!'' OriginalVideoAnimation.
* Occurs in the ''RurouniKenshin'' anime when Kenshin inadvertently blunders into the ladies side when he's a bit too excited to share an EurekaMoment.
* Zoe Ornimoto from ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' did it

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'': when the male characters stumble upon the female characters in the hot springs, the latter continuously throw a ridiculously amount of wooden buckets at the former. [[GameplayAndStorySegregation No amount of Courage the main character can have to be able to "hold the line"]].
** This gets a CallBack in ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena'' where one of random items what Teddie can throw causes washtubs to rain down like a meteor shower.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Megatokyo}}'' in a public bath, Piro hears Miho and Yuki screaming and rushes to their aid. Miho (who previously tolerated his presence well) [[ stops him in his tracks]] with a thrown washtub, apparently afraid of ''Yuki's reaction to Piro seeing her''.
