Urine Trouble
Is this!?....MON DIEU!!
The Spy from Team Fortress 2, expressing his disgust upon being hit by Jarate.

Everybody poops. Everybody pees, too. But some writers and artists like to take that familiar yellow substance and turn it into comedy gold.

Urine Trouble is when an animal (usually a dog) relieves itself on some inappropriate target. Occasionally it's a toddler or even a baby letting fly with the offending tinkle.

This is usually the unhappy fate of whatever hapless hero or character disguises himself as a tree or a fire hydrant... in which case you can hardly blame the dog. It can also happen with an amnesiac human who thinks he's a dog, or a dog turned into a human. Often, but not always, the last step in a Humiliation Conga.

This trope is versatile enough that symbolic peeing will do; e.g., we see an unsympathetic character drinking from a fountain, only for the shot to pull back and reveal that the fountain is shaped like a cherub urinating.

Often a form of Vulgar Humor.

Subtrope of Toilet Humour. See also Dogs Are Dumb, I Ate What?, and Dung Fu. When babies do this, it's a Tinkle in the Eye.

Compare and contrast Excrement Statement.

Get it? Urine? You're-in? Get it?

    Anime & Manga 
  • In the manga of Ginga Nagareboshi Gin, Chibi does this after the pack takes him in... while he's on Moss's head.
    • In the sequel, Hougen makes it very clear that you do not, under any circumstances, disappoint him. Not only does he have some of his henchdogs rip Nero's front paws off, he proceeds to urinate on the dog's face as he dies.
  • This happens to the haughty villainess Esmeraude in Sailor Moon R. (pictured)
  • Akamaru, of Naruto, who is actually capable of pin-point projectile urination while spinning around in all directions, which Kiba calls "Dynamic Marking". This actually serves a purpose, both for tracking and as an attack (dog urine in the eye really stings). He peed on Naruto at least once when he was unconscious, because he doesn't like him.
    • And in a filler episode, Naruto himself accidentally pees on Ino off of a roof... while disguised as Ino. (And Ino mistakes it for rain...)
    • In the original pilot manga that was submitted to Shonen Jump way back when Kishimoto was first getting started, Naruto has trapped (and evidently injured) someone who was mean to him in a hole. He then proceeds to urinate on this guy, saying it takes 10 days to get the scent out (which might have something to do with this Naruto really being a demon fox).
  • A cat example: The main character of Chi's Sweet Home got her name because she peed on everything but her litterbox when being trained to use itnote . Yohei remedied this by putting a peed-on sock in the litter, and Chi got the message.
  • Lampshaded in Fullmetal Alchemist, when Ed and Al arrive at Tucker's estate, and Big Friendly Dog Alexander leaps out. When said dog is later playing with Alphonse, Ed remarks something along the lines of: "Let's hope he doesn't think Al's a hydrant!"
    • In a later incident, just before Hawkeye adopts (and names) Black Hayate, said puppy takes a leak on a wall. She proceeds to housebreak him - with a ''multiple'' warning shots.
  • In the Dragon Ball Z Movie, Broly: Second Coming, after trying to find a moment to relieve himself, Trunks is caught by Broly and held over the larger Saiyan's head. The inevitable happens.
    • This trope was used much more often in the original Dragon Ball series, particularly in filler. Goku has caused urine trouble for Pilaf (by going on his spy camera) and Murasaki (who was disguised as a tree - genius how Goku picked him out of all the other trees...)
    • There was also the time in The Dead Zone movie when Gohan, after getting drunk from eating a fruit, pees on Krillin's head. Keep in mind that Gohan was 4 or 5 at the time.
  • In an episode of Anime//Onegai My Melody, Kuromi gets peed on by Baku's young baby sister, Bako.
  • In Pokémon Special, Ruby and Sapphire admire a beautiful rainbow...only to realize in horror that said rainbow was formed from Emerald pissing off a high balcony. At that moment, the Pokedex resonance system goes off and Emerald, trying to find the source of the beeping, twists around and pisses directly on Ruby and Sapphire themselves!
  • Happens a lot in Inubaka: Crazy for Dogs, which is to be expected in a series about dogs. Specifically, puppies tend to urinate in excitement every time Suguri is around.
  • Happens in Yu-Gi-Oh! to Rex and Weevil during their Humiliation Conga flashback.
  • Baby Taro promptly pees on both Ryoko and Ayeka throughout the eighth OVA episode of Tenchi Muyo!.
  • This happens a lot in Gintama.
    • In Episode 6, Gintoki takes a piss in front of the police station after he is interrogated to show his distaste for the police force.
    • In Episode 19, Hasegawa is relieving himself off of a cliff in a flashback when a woman notices and blushes.
    • In Episode 42, Gintoki and Umibouzu pee on the giant alien they just killed as a sign of victory.
    • In Episode 53, Gintoki has to put out a fire but doesn't have any water to use, so he uses his penis to do the job for him.
    • In Episode 115, when he is lost on an island, Katsura writes a big "SOS" in the sand with his pee.
    • In Episode 190, Gintoki pisses on a mound of dirt that turns out to be a cursed cat's grave.
    • Gintoki once pisses into a river while a man (who is a little bit downstream) is trying to drink from it.
  • Shows up a couple times in Nana to Kaoru:
    • Invoked in chapter 6. Nana is suffering from a Potty Emergency, and Kaoru seems to be finding her a restroom, but they go to a clearing and Kaoru wants her to do it there. She is hesitant to do so, but she does give in.
    • In chapter 75, she's is suffering from another one, while in her "Dog Girl" outfit. After much panic, and trying to do it as an actual dog would, she finds a way to relieve herself. Kaoru then helps clean her up.
  • Inverted in Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls, wherein a younger Naoe pees on an earthworm, apparently to get rid of a bad luck curse.
  • Just about anytime Miroku from InuYasha is mistaken for a toilet by a little toddler... Miroku is the one who ends up running away with the kid to a bathroom yelling "You know better than to pee there!" or "The toilet's over here!".
  • Happens offscreen in a chapter of the Neptunia manga. At one point during the chapter where Uni, Rom, Ram and Nepgear were turned into babies, the latter relieves herself, and her sister promptly takes advantage of the occasion to take a picture. It happens offscreen, but we do get to see the photo at the end of the chapter, and Nepgear's understandably embarassed reaction.

    Comic Books 
  • In one issue of Preacher, the villain of the arc rounds up some of The Klan to help send a message to Jesse Custer by burning a cross on Jesse's lawn. A drunken Jesse calmly staggers out of the house and relieves himself of the fire hazard, which the sheet-heads don't take well.
  • A not-fit-for-print Gary Larson cartoon, included in The PreHistory of The Far Side, depicted the unfortunate results of a race of aliens shaped like fire hydrants making First Contact with a dog.
  • In the last issue of the Beasts Of Burden & Hellboy Cross Over, this is how the Big Bad is defeated.
  • Hinted at in Garfield when the titular cat once disguised himself as a tree. Okay, it didn't actually happen, but you can tell that Odie was definitely thinking about it.
  • In the crossover comicbook Robocop vs Terminator comic book, a poor little mutt makes the fatal error of mistaking ED-209's leg for a fire hydrant. It does not end well.
  • Vampirella: Pantha does this to the defeated enemy. (In her werepanther form, and the whole issue was a hommage to Russ Meyer - it was even named Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! - but it still astonishes to see this in a fairly mainstream comic.)
  • In one Punisher comic, one of Frank's enemies digs up Frank's family and urinates on the remains. When Frank finds out he goes on a fucking rampage.

    Willard: Oh, God, is that urine? (tastes it) It is! It's human urine!

  • Played for drama in Watership Down, when the dog being lured to the Efrafan attackers stops to piddle on the power pylon rather than chase Hyzenthlay. How often does this trope put lives at risk?

    Literature 
  • In Gulliver's Travels, the Lilliputian castle catches on fire, and the title character has only one option for putting it out.
    • There's a Bowdlerized version out there where he spits on the fire to put it out. Makes the Lilliputian queen's shock and indignation a little more puzzling, especially when you're a kid
  • Derek Robinsons novel Piece of Cake features a dog, owned by the squadron leader, who urinates on everyone but his owner. Pilots, groundstaff, guards at division HQ: You name it, Reilly has peed on it.
  • Discworld
    • In Terry Pratchett's Hogfather, Death in disguise as the Hogfather (a Santa Claus/ Father Christmas Expy) brings his sleigh, drawn by four enormous tusked hogs, to a department store so the children can tell him what they want for Hogswatch. One of the hogs promptly and extensively urinates on the floor, which almost every child present finds to be the most enthralling thing he or she has ever seen.
    • Averted in the same novel by the Death of Rats, who went through the motions for form's sake, but was a bit handicapped in this department.
    • Subverted in The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, as the title rats deliberately urinate in places humans would prefer they not do so, and even go so far as to tank up on water before heading out on coordinated missions to "widdle" on people's stuff.
    • Averted in Lords and Ladies, when Granny asks Nanny Ogg to place a chamber pot beneath a large bat that's hanging from her bedroom rafters.
  • Paper Towns has school bullies shooting kids with Super Soakers filled with pee.
  • In Michael Crichton 's Eaters of the Dead, the Arab among Vikings wakes up to find a dog licking him and is terribly embarrassed because it reminds him of a morality tale about a drunken man who is licked, then peed on by a dog, but thinks he is being cared for by a kind passer-by. It's not clear whether the fable actually exists or not.
  • In To Kill A Mocking Bird, one of the characters urinated off his front porch. This is not shown in the film adaptation (thankfully).
  • Averted in Faded Steel Heat, when Mr. Big the parrot starts to relieve himself on the Dead Man's shoulder, only to get flung across the room via telekinesis.

     Live-Action TV

  • Young Blades: In "Rub-a-Dub Sub," D'Artagnan rescues a baby from a runaway cart, and the baby pees in his face. Used to set up a pun:
    Baby's Mother: I'm so relieved!
    Baby: (Pees.)
    Jacqueline: So is he.
  • iCarly makes the same joke the trope title does in one episode. Also, there occasionally is pee humor that fits this category.
  • From the Good Luck Charlie episode Baby Come Back:
    Teddy: (panicked) PJ?
    PJ: What?
    Teddy: You brought home the wrong baby!
    PJ: What? I did not!

  • The Robert Lund song "I Peed in the Pool", a parody of "I Kissed a Girl" by Katy Perry.
    I peed in the pool, and I liked it!
    It saved me a trip to the toilet
    I peed in the pool, 'stead of waiting
    I hope they've been chlorinating
    It felt it so warm
    It felt so right
    It helped resolve my stage fright
    I peed in the pool and I liked it!

    New Media 
  • There's an I Can Has Hot Dog photo involving a puppy peeing on a laptop.
    • Reminiscent of the T-shirt slogan: "Meddle not in the affairs of cats, for they are subtle and will piss on your computer".

    Video Games 
  • Ōkami lets our lupine hero pee on enemies as an attack to gain valuable Demon Fangs. And she's God.
    • Even stranger? You have to pay money in order to do this.
    • It can later be upgraded into explosive crap.
    • For the most part, this barely does any damage, thus is only used to get said valuable Demon Fangs. However, improving your strength enough does allow these moves to be used for Cherry Tapping. And if you get and equip the Infinity Plus One Bead Necklace, they become deadly all on their own.
  • One of Chaos' Finishing Moves in the fighting game Primal Rage is "Golden Shower", which is exactly what it sounds like. This move was considered so Squicky that Atari had to re-release the game with the move removed.
  • You can do this to people in Postal 2 and 3.
  • In Duke Nukem 3D, Duke mentions that he is going to rip off the head of the boss he is fighting and shit down its neck. In a cut scene following that battle, you can see him squatting over the neck reading a newspaper.
    • It's also worth mentioning that there's an averted version of the trope. You can literally make Duke pee by going into a restroom and walking up to a urinal. Ah, much better!
  • Duke Nukem Forever's "Capture the Babe" multiplayer mode oftentimes has one of the eponymous Babes stating: "Oops, I think I peed a little!" ... while the player character is carrying her on his shoulder.
    • The abovementioned trope aversion in this game's predecessor is also one of the possible environment interactions in this game (this is taken to an extreme in the form of an Excrement Statement after the Final Boss fight in which the player can urinate into the final boss's eye socket).
  • Conkers Bad Fur Day lets you do this as part of solving a puzzle. Its multiplayer mode has a stage with a restroom setting, too ... and within it, this is your ONLY weapon. Even if you chose a female-looking model.note 
  • Metal Gear:
    • In Metal Gear Solid, allowing a wolf pup to urinate on one of Snake's precious cardboard boxes would make said box a scent mask against the adult wolves, making it possible to sneak past them.
    • In Metal Gear Solid 2, Raiden can get urinated on by a guard, and you can get some pretty amusing responses from the other characters. The guy apparently has a never-ending bladder, and Raiden is considered The Scrappy of the series...
  • This has evolved to the point of legend in the Leisure Suit Larry franchise, where in the original game a dog would walk along and urinate on you if you stood around long enough, and the same dog would later re-appear time and time again in subsequent games.
    • I thought he just showed up at the beginning of "Larry II" and that was it.
  • Dog can urinate on certain landmarks in Dragon Age: Origins, marking the regions they are located in as his territory. This grants him "Mabari Dominance", a passive attack/defense bonus that lasts as long as he remains in the area. It's a testament to how dog friendly Ferelden is that nobody objects to Dog peeing all over the place. Not even the Dalish raise a fuss when Dog "claims" one of their tents. The Alienage Elves also don't object to Dog whizzing on their sacred tree.
    • Most Alienages have long since chopped down their vhenadahl for firewood or let it wither. It's a tradition whose purpose has long since been forgotten. (Zevran also comments that elves themselves often pee on the vhenadahl.)
    • The sequel has a scene where your player character's dog pees on a burglar (if you let the burglar go).
  • In Final Fantasy IX, Zidane and Vivi share a male bonding moment when they both pee off the edge of a cliff in one scene.
  • In the second Jak and Daxter game, there's a cutscene in which the crocadog pees on Kor's walking staff. Jak and Daxter find this amusing; Kor does not.
  • Characters from Team Fortress 2 received new weapons on an update. One of the Sniper's weapons is called Jarate which is, simply put, throwing jars filled with his own piss at people, which makes every hit on them a mini-crit until it goes away. The canonical explanation is that it makes them lose the will to live.
    • Made even better with the recent polycount update, where the sniper now has a tranquilizer rifle; Only instead of tranquilizer, the darts are filled with Jarate. Each shot result in a yellow blast like standard jarate with the same effect.
    • Combine the two with the Bushwhacka, a large knife that critically hits on mini-crits, and you have an entire arsenal built around piss.
  • In the South Park video game for the N64, your primary weapon is a snowball. If you switch to Secondary Fire, you will be throwing yellow snowballs, and upon firing you hear a zipping noise and a peeing noise, and the resulting snowball will be yellow and do more damage.
  • Persona 4 and its anime features a school-trip where the cast goes for a swim in the local river. The girls lampshade that they probably shouldn't incase someone takes a leak. Subverted since it isn't pee that goes down the river, it's puke.
  • In Soldier of Fortune's first level, you can find a terrorist relieving himself outside the restrooms. Later on, there's a scene of one pissing on a hostage.
  • In Halo 3 on The Ark, there's a Brute urinating in the corner of one room of the Cartographer building.
  • In Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, if you befriend Muffy, one of the first cut scenes you can trigger with her involves your dog chasing her, and apparently peeing on her.
  • An upgrade in The Binding of Isaac aptly named "Number One" replaces Isaac's tears with a stream of urine and replaces his normal crying expression with a look of relief. Another item, the "Lemon Mishap," causes Issac to leave a puddle of urine that damages enemies.
    • If Isaac enters a room with low health, he'll leave a small puddle of urine by the doorway.

    Theater 
  • No joke, played for drama in the musical Urinetown, though the whole show is a dark parody.

    Webcomics 
  • In It's Walky!, the title character (who isn't a dog) does this to assert his dominance over another character.
  • Brawl in the Family has an Animal Crossing version — a bunch of dog villagers peeing on the player character's mail Gyroid.
  • During the conclusion to the Penny Arcade story arc An Alternative Lifestyle, Gabe tells his servant Hector that he needs to pee and that he can't find an outhouse anywhere. Tycho tells Gabe that he sees one, but Gabe just decides to pee in Hector's cupped hands instead.
    Gabe: Eyes closed, pal. This ain't no peep show.
    Tycho: If I weren't drunk, this would be kind of weird.
  • In Educomix, it's an established rule (from the very first strip) that that urine is better for the "ecos" than water, so naturally, this trope is commonly shown.
  • Karin-dou 4koma: Catherine (a bird/dog youkai hybrid) pees all over Tamaryu interrupts her rush to the bathroom with a caressing session. Tamaryu is quite alarmed, but Catherine can't stop because it feels so good.
  • Unsounded: Sette startles Matty while he's using the bucket in his prison cell. Startled, his aim slips upwards to the barred window Sette is talking though.

    Western Animation 
  • Almost every now and again, due to being able to turn into animals, Beast Boy has been accused and has even been told to stay off the couch because he may pee on it. In the same episode that Starfire is going under a transformation, Beast boy is yelled at by Cyborg not to doo doo in the T-Ship on their way home.
  • In the Futurama episode "A Head in the Polls", after Bender sells his body (literally, becoming just a head), a dog walks up to him and lifts a leg...
    Bender: "I'll give you five dollars not to do what you're thinking about doing!" (silence, camera pans away) "Heh heh, you just lost five dollars."
    • Also, in "Decision 3012" Bender is working for Nixon to dig up dirt on Chris Travers, a rival election candidate. While digging through his office for files at night, Travers comes back, forcing him to hide in the men's room disguised as a urinal (the rest of which are out of order). Cue Traverse walking up to Bender and unzipping his fly as we transition to the next scene.
      Nixon: Well, you did manage to get us a TREMENDOUS urine sample...
      Bender: (embarrassed and traumatized) Let's not talk about that...!
  • A dog once peed on baby Danny during a Flashback sequence in the Christmas Episode of Danny Phantom, one of the many examples of why he behaves like a Scrooge. "And then he was looking a bit yellow in the face."
  • In Beethoven The Animated Series, the title character does this to the neighborhood bully dog and gang leader, Killer. This is arguably Beethoven's Crowning Moment Of Awesome in the cartoon series.
  • In one episode of Code Lyoko, Jeremie creates a robotic dog named Kiwi 2 who is so lifelike, it needs to be walked, and "pees" oil if it isn't.
    • In general, if Kiwi (the animal, not the robot) wasn't walked daily, he had unfortunate accidents. Played for Laughs or not depended on the writer. In "Big Bug," it was used for comedy. In "Canine Conundrum," it was used for a somewhat courtroom drama.
  • When Phineas and Ferb's sister Candace visited Jeremy in the episode "Interview with a Platypus", his Enfant Terrible sister's Right Hand Poodle did this to her shoe.
    • In Across the Second Dimension, Perry pees on Doofenshmirtz's couch as a way to distract Phineas and Ferb and keep them from helping Doof, without blowing his cover as an ordinary platypus. Later, Phineas throws the wet couch cushion at Alternate Dimension Doof's face.
    Doof: Hey, wait, I just realised- that was a conscious decision. You peed on my couch!
  • When Kim Possible's nemesis Dr. Drakken was too busy working on his latest gadget to take Commodore Puddles for a walk, the dog, well, lived up to the name, causing a short circuit that caused Drakken's intended shrink ray to function as a growth ray instead.
  • Used in the My Life as a Teenage Robot episode, "Tradeshow Showdown"; Jenny finds a small robot dog and asks it to perform several tricks, only for it to respond with a monotone "Bow-wow" everytime. Finally, she asks, "Can you do anything?" Cue the leg lift. When Jenny walks away, she has a faceful of oil.
  • In The Simpsons, we see an old clip from the Krusty the Clown Show, in which a monkey guest is climbing around on top of Krusty's head.
    Krusty: So, why do they call this a Urine Monkey? [beat] Oh.
  • In My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic episode "It's About Time", Ponyville is under attack of Cerberus and Twilight Sparkle steps in right when the giant dog was just about to mark its territory on one of the buildings.
  • South Park has an entire episode based on this called, fittingly enough, "Pee". It starts with people peeing in pools at the local water park and then ends up with the government peeing on monkeys as part of a scientific experiment.
    • From the episode Asspen:
    Cartman: Look you guys, Butters is asleep.
    Stan: He's such a douchebag.
    Cartman: Hey, you wanna see a trick? When someone's sleeping, you get a glass of warm water, and you put their hand in it... [he grabs a glass of water, places it near Butters' side, and dips his hand in]
    Stan: ...Yeah, and then what?
    Cartman: And then, you pee on him! [he drops his pants and urinates on Butters, then starts laughing]
    Kyle: No, dude! You put their hand in the water and it makes them pee!
    • Also from the episode Summer Sucks when Cartman is taken swimming lessons with a bunch of first graders who all pee in the pool.
  • In an episode of The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Skarr gets magical plant powers and disguises himself as a bush, which promptly gets pissed on by a dog. This happens again at the end.
  • In The Powerpuff Girls Movie, after Buttercup knocks out gorilla Rocko Socko, the Talking Dog appears and urinates on the gorilla's metal glove.

    Real Life 
  • Tip for the first-time parent or inexperienced babysitter: if you need to change a diaper (especially on a male infant) do not have your face right over the baby (in fact, keeping something over the relevant body parts is a good move).
  • Democratic councilman Steven Lipsky got drunk and urinated on a crowd in Washington, D.C.
    • And poor Jimmy Carter had to deal with his own, drunken brother deciding to take a whizz on the White House lawn, in front of reporters.
  • And, of course, then there's Ozzy Osbourne peeing on the Alamo. In a dress. This got him banned from entering the city of San Antonio.
    • Ozzy later said that some Hispanic prisoners with whom he shared a holding cell claimed they pee on the Alamo all the time.
  • Courtesy of FailBlog, a rather tasteless way of identifying the restrooms in a certain pub.
  • There was a story about a man who kept getting harassed by pranksters at his house at night. He fought back by using water guns filled with - you guessed it - urine.
  • Alan Shepard's flight into space was only supposed to last 15 minutes, but it was delayed for hours. There was no provision for elimination built into his suit, so....
    • Yuri Gagarin, first human in space, averted this trope by peeing on a tire of the bus that took him to the launch pad, starting a cosmonaut tradition.
  • Male dogs and cats mark their territory by spraying it with urine.
    • Though somewhat rarer, female dogs and cats do this, too.
    • As do plenty of other mammal species.
    • Including cheetahs, such as the female who infamously sprayed inside an observing biologist's vehicle's sun roof on Big Cat Diary.
  • "Gardy loo!"
  • This poster on the Jeet Kune Do Talk forum pissed on a mugger when he was attacked using the urinal. Gross and embarrassing but effective.
  • Frogs and toads sometimes urinate and/or defecate as a defense mechanism if grabbed, to try to make themselves unappetizing to predators.
  • Zoos design their pens for hippos and tapirs to keep visitors at a safe distance from the edge of the exhibit. Not just because such large animals can be dangerous, but because hippos scatter their feces widely by waving their tails around as they defecate, and female tapirs spray urine several feet behind their rear ends.
  • Mice and voles produce a lot of urine due to limited efficiency of such tiny kidneys. The trails they routinely follow tend to be spotted with so many urine drops that birds of prey, able to see urine's ultraviolet hue, can spot such paths and pinpoint where prey are likely to appear: a serious cause of literal Urine Trouble for the rodents, themselves.
