->''"I would die if I don't bathe twice a day."''
-->-- '''Ponzu''', ''Manga/SixSixSixSatan''

A character (most likely female) that seems to enjoy baths and showers a lot and is often shown bathing more frequently than any of the other characters. Like a NeatFreak, she is usually the first to mention the need to bathe when she is filthy. A few of these people are so into bathing that they have no problem bathing in an AwkwardlyPlacedBathtub and [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl won't mind that people can see them bathing naked]]. It is also common that many bathing beauties qualify as MsFanservice.

In anime it's an extremely common fanservice addition to have women be very happy about their bath and [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything utter more or less orgasmic sighs, moans and words like "lovely" or "this feels so good"]].

A stock scene of the HotSpringsEpisode. See also FuroScene.

In order to qualify for this trope, the woman must seem to love bathing a lot, have lots of bathing scenes or have some sort of significant or iconic bathing scene.



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Ponzu of ''Manga/SixSixSixSatan'', since she says that she bathes at least twice a day in an AwkwardlyPlacedBathtub. The quote above says a ''lot''.
* In ''LightNovel/AmagiBrilliantPark'', Sento Isuzu often bathes up to three times a day, and says she feels like she's dying if she doesn't. [[spoiler:This is because she has {{Kappa}} ancestry. She has to keep her body from drying out.]]
* ''Manga/AoiHana'' has the pivotal scene in which Akira openly admires a bathing Fumi, which turns out to be a crucial moment in their relationship.
* ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'':
** Hungary and Taiwan are implied be this [[http://i.imgur.com/fpAp2.jpg in a recent strip.]] Considering that [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Heviz both lady nations have quite]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taiwanese_hot_springs the hot spring culture]], it makes historical sense ''and'' is In Character.
** Czechia/Czech Republic is one, too. She's seen [[http://hetascanlations.tumblr.com/post/126084086405/hetalia-world-stars-chapter-90-original in a bath tub]] in one strip, [[http://hetascanlations.tumblr.com/post/142231046345/hetalia-world-stars-chapter-159-original and in]] [[http://hetascanlations.tumblr.com/post/142553973685/hetalia-world-stars-chapter-160-original others]] [[UnknownRival she cheerfully boasts to a nonplussed Hungary]] about [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spa_towns_in_the_Czech_Republic her land's]] '''very''' famous spa cities.
* In ''Manga/BananaNoNana'', Mizukami Haruko literally will die if she doesn't bathe for at least 20 hours a day. Because of this she basically lives in a mobile bathtub.
* Liang Qi from ''Anime/{{Canaan}}'' loves and adores her hot baths, though nowhere as much as her [[AxCrazy bloodshed]] [[PsychoLesbian and her "Oneesama"]].
* In ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'', Laura Stuart loves bathing so much that she has a room with a ridiculous number of bathtubs, and she'll often bathe while having important discussions.
* Mikiri in ''Manga/{{Change 123}}'', which is sometimes combined with the InnocentFanserviceGirl trope.
* Charady from the series of shorts titled ''Charady's Daily Joke'' is seen bathing the entire time in a majority of the episodes and in the opening sequence. She is also seen just outside of the bathtub in the promotional poster.

* Shizuka from ''Anime/{{Doraemon}}'' seems to spend much of her free time bathing. And almost every time she gets in the bath, [[RunningGag Nobita ends up]] [[AccidentalPervert accidentally walking in]] thanks to Doraemon's gadgets. She is considered one of the most iconic bathing enthusiasts in anime and manga.
* Bulma from the ''Franchise/DragonBall'' series enjoys taking bubble baths and has a very popular shower scene in the sixth episode. They call back to this in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' by giving her another bubble bath scene while she is hiding out in a capsule house on Namek.
* Mari Yumenokata of ''Anime/ElfPrincessRane'' bathes in all 2 episodes and was mentioned that she loves baths.
* Lucy Heartfilia from ''Manga/FairyTail''. She typically has a bath scene atleast once in almost every story arc while wearing her ModestyTowel in the bathtub for the anime version.
* A rare male example: Haruka from ''Anime/{{Free}}'' loves water so much that he takes baths every day and just sits in them. In the first episode, Makoto walked into his bathroom to find him bathing. Haruka then proceeds to get out of the bath...in a swimsuit.
* Rushuna Tendo from ''Anime/{{Grenadier}}'' is shown to have a weakness of loving baths and is seen bathing in almost every episode.
* [[EveryEpisodeEnding Most episodes]] of ''Manga/HidamariSketch'' end with a scene of Yuno in her bathtub reminiscing about the episode's events.
* Kagome Higurashi in ''Manga/InuYasha'' always has to resort to bathe in lakes and hot springs while she is in the feudal era (sometimes SkinnyDipping, sometimes not) and is usually seen having a hot bath every time she comes back to the modern age.

* Almost every episode of ''Manga/MaicchinguMachikoSensei'' has the main character in the bath or at least the shower.
* Elpeo Puru of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' has a love for baths that it can even be shown to annoy the other characters when she gets desperate to have them.
* Lila and any of the other [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Humaritts]] from ''Anime/NajicaBlitzTactics'' qualify, since they gain energy from taking baths in tubs of special pink liquid.
* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has quite a few.
** Nami, for one, since she has the most bathing scenes and a few of them being memorable. Though one counted as FanDisservice since Absalom attacked her in the bath.
** Kalifa can be considered due to the theme of her devil fruit powers, which are creating bubbles. She has a bubble bath scene to taunt Nami in battle, since water weakens Devil Fruit users.
** Boa Hancock has a significant bath scene where [[spoiler:Luffy crashes through her roof and accidentally catches a glimpse of the tattoo on her back... [[TattooedCrook the brand given to the slaves of the World Nobles]].]]
** Honey Queen from the second ''One Piece'' film was first introduced bathing in a giant bathtub on the top of her ship.

* The two female leads to ''Anime/PleaseTwins'', Karen and Miina. Every single episode has one or both of them taking a bath.
* Most of the main characters of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' qualify, since most of them have a curse that involves them having to take hot baths for them to restore themselves to their original form.
* Kaoru Kamiya from ''Manga/RurouniKenshin''. Considering that she's a dojo owner who constantly practices, it's more justified than other cases.
* Another rare male example in Gemini Saga of ''Manga/SaintSeiya'', as he has at least one bathing scene in every adaptation he appears in. In fact, his bathing scene in the Sanctuary arc is one of his most well known appearances, in part due to [[MrFanservice the usual reaction]].
* In ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'', Shana doesn't ''need'' to bathe at all. She just spends an hour or so every day soaking in hot water because she enjoys it.
* Blair's most memorable scene in ''Manga/SoulEater'' was her bubble bath in the first episode. She has another scene in episode 4 and episode 12. Blair liking baths is ironic since [[spoiler:her true form is a cat, and cats supposedly hate water]].
* Lady Elsaria Rahnclave from ''Manga/UbelBlatt'', enjoys baths wherever she goes. And she is not even [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl shy about who she is bathing with]]. She even has an AwkwardlyPlacedBathtub on her airship bridge.
* Akiko Aoshika from ''Manga/WolfGuyWolfenCrest'' is seen more than once taking showers. Then again, considering the CrapsackWorld she lives in, [[ShowerOfAngst no wonder she does so]].
* Doronjo, the villainess of ''Anime/{{Yatterman}}'', is often seen taking baths and showers on many occasions, even in the live-action film.
** Generally all the villainess of ''Anime/TimeBokan'' franchise love taking baths or showers (like part of their MsFanservice status). Mujo in ''Zenderman'' does this also in ending credits.
** Again from ''Zenderman''. In the last episode, Muujo and her minions end up transporting into ancient Egypt in the bathroom of Cleopatra VII Philopator while she was having a bath in her big bathing pool.
* Colonel Felme of ''Anime/ZoidsGenesis'' loves having bubble baths so much that she has conversations with some of the male characters while she is seen relaxing in them and shows no discomfort of them seeing her.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ComicBook/{{Zatanna}} from Creator/DCComics is shown to enjoy baths a lot.
* Lara Croft appeared to love doing this during Top Cow's run with Franchise/TombRaider. In almost each different story had Lara bathe at least once. She would usually bathe in nearby lakes wearing only her bra and panties. In one case, Lara is held at gunpoint as she bathed in a nearby lake.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* A blonde from a scene in the beginning of ''Film/{{Doomsday}}'' has a shotgun. You only see her naked in the bathtub.

* The Captain of the Space Ark in ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', who is running the ship from the AwkwardlyPlacedBathtub on the bridge.
* Prince Alannon from ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'' would likely qualify for this if he appeared in the main narrative. He was abducted by his future wives wearing nothing but a silk bathing gown, and got them to build him a bathhouse on their farm.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Umeko (Deka Pink) of ''Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger'' has lots of bubble baths throughout the series. She has three rubber duckies, which have names (in a ShoutOut, they're on the dashboard of her patrol car in her ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' movie appearance.)
* In ''Series/KamenRiderKiva,'' the ''male lead,'' Wataru, has many, many bathing scenes, usually being found there while pondering or talking things over with [[NonHumanSidekick Kivat]]. We also get BathtubBonding scenes with him and pretty much ''every'' other male character at least once. This is why ''Kiva'' is the most popular Rider series among {{Yaoi Fangirl}}s.
* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus '': The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZxY1J69WsQ Montgolfier]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__5p_ZPdwv4 Brothers]] from ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqUp3i8CcWo The Golden Age of Ballooning]]''.
* One named Danielle is featured in ''Series/OneThousandWaysToDie''. She doesn't die, fortunately. The DirtyOldMan janitor who made holes in Danielle's flat's floor to peep on her, but ended up crushed under her tub when said floor collapsed on him due to the weight and humidity? Not halfway as lucky.

[[folder: Mythology and Religion]]
* In the Literature/BooksOfSamuel, King David is on the rooftop of his palace, and happens to catch a beautiful young woman by the name of Bathsheba taking an open-air bath. (According to some interpretations, this was a ritual bath to "purify" her after menstruation.) He [[OutdoorBathPeeping watches her intently while she bathes, most likely with no idea that she's being watched.]] He finds out who she is: the wife of one of his best soldiers, Uriah, who happens to be off fighting in a war...and summons Bathsheba to the palace for sex. She becomes pregnant, and King David's response is to try and get Uriah to come home and have sex with her (something explicitly forbidden under the law). And when Uriah refuses, he has Uriah sent to the front lines, where he is killed in battle...and then marries Bathsheba, passing it off as an HonorableMarriageProposal, which gets him a pretty intense WhatTheHellHero from his advisor, Nathan. Notably, no moral commentary is made on Bathsheba's acceptance of David's summons, or even on her going along with his plan to pass off her baby as Uriah's, indicating that [[QuestionableConsent she went along with it because she was afraid]], not because she was amoral. [[FairForItsDay Which would have been a pretty radical notion]], in the days when the prevailing view on female sexuality was that AllWomenAreLustful.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', there is a house in the town Costa del Sol, where a woman is taking a bath. She is in there for the entire game.
* Creator/{{Capcom}} officially listed bathing as one of Rose's interests in the ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' series. She is shown [[http://streetfighter.wikia.com/wiki/File:Rosebath.gif having a bath]] in her ending in ''Street Fighter Alpha 2''. She is also seen having a bubble bath in the Capcom Gals Anthology manga, and mentions that she would like a bubble bath in one of her winning quotes in ''Super Street Fighter IV''.
* Likewise, in ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'', Felicia is seen taking a well-deserved bubble bath in her ending after achieving stardom.
* The ghost Petunia in ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'' fits this trope, [[BrawnHilda even though she is not a beauty]].
* Florzon from the Capcom game ''VideoGame/OnePieceMansion'' is a tenant you can get who just takes a bath the whole time.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'':
** She's not seen bathing on screen, but [[spoiler: the {{heel face turn}}ed Aversa]] from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' is said to be "the one who bathes longer than anyone else in the army". If asked about what she does in her free time her reply is "I usually go for a swim in the lake. ... [[Radar/FireEmblemAwakening Sometimes even]] [[SkinnyDipping in proper attire.]]"
** According to Camilla's description in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', she enjoys baths the most. In face, one of the trading cards for the Fire Emblem series [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fireemblem/images/2/26/Cipher_Camilla_5.png/revision/latest?cb=20161009075100 even features her bathing.]]
* Sam in ''VideoGame/UntilDawn'' definitely counts; it doesn't hurt that she looks exactly like and is voiced by Creator/HaydenPanettiere. The masked psycho who interrupts proceedings, on the other hand...
* In ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaAriaOfSorrow'', one of the rooms in the Arena area has a fountain where a Succubus and a hidden Lilith are. If you look carefully, [[FunnyBackgroundEvent you'll see a rubber ducky in the water as well]], which implies they've been bathing.
* ''VideoGame/GodOfWarII'' has a pair of gorgeous topless women in a bathhouse when Kratos [[CrashingThroughTheHarem literally crashes into it]] and its possible to have a OptionalSexualEncounter with them.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Sissi Delmas of ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'' is said to take up to three showers a day, and she spends lots of time in them.
