'''Basic Trope''': Bathroom usage is not dealt with in-story.
* '''Straight''': During the course of the series, no mention is made of a character using the bathroom.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** No evidence suggests that bathrooms exist!
** [[Film/{{Pleasantville}} Bathrooms exist, but they do not contain toilets.]]
* '''Downplayed''': No mention is made, but bathrooms are clearly marked, extras are seen walking in and out of them, and a main character can be seen with toilet paper.
* '''Justified''':
** Bathrooms and related bodily functions are not relevant to the story.
** The characters are StarfishAliens or FairFolk who do not excrete bodily waste as we do.
** The story covers a short enough time period that no one should need a bathroom break.
* '''Inverted''':
** A character is shown explicitly taking a dump mid-story.
** All characters use the bathroom more often than people do in real life.
** The show is ''about'' using the bathroom.
** ToiletHumour
** It's a GrossOutShow with poop and pee in it.
* '''Subverted''':
** A bathroom is seen
** [[TheLancer Lance]] walks out of the bathroom with a satisfied look on his face.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** But no one is seen using it.
** But we never saw what he actually did in there; for all we know, he just washed [[CoveredInGunge slime]] off his hands.
** Or the satisfied look on his face is the result of getting some [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre action]] in the bathroom with a LoveInterest...or [[ADateWithRosiePalms himself.]]
* '''Parodied''':
** [[DeconstructiveParody Everyone suffers from constipation.]] [[note]] As for why they don't pee, that is a mystery [[/note]]
** Nobody excretes any kind of waste, not even so much as carbon dioxide.
** Since nobody poops, nobody knows what poop is or what toilets are for.
** InAWorld without toilets, one man must suddenly confront a PottyEmergency.
* '''Zig Zagged''': ???
* '''Averted''': Characters are seen using bathrooms regularly, and it is [[BathroomBreakout occasionally]] [[TheCanKickedHim a]] [[PottyEmergency major]] [[EmbarrassingDampSheets plot]] [[ToiletHumor point.]]
* '''Enforced''': Let's face it: do we ''really'' want to see people doing [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow gross bodily functions]] that eat up major plot time?
* '''Lampshaded''': "Why do we have a toilet anyway?"
* '''Invoked''': The characters all drink a potion that makes them not need to use toilets.
* '''Exploited''': The BigBad [[KickTheDog causes all the bathrooms to become unusable for some reason]].
* '''Defied''': A character gets up, grabs the Daily Tribune, and heads to the bathroom.
* '''Discussed''': "Hey, don't we ever stop for a bathroom break?" "We just never seem to need to."
* '''Conversed''': "How come people on TV don't use the bathroom?" "They must do it off screen."
* '''Deconstructed''': Not pooping or peeing turns out to be a symptom of some sort of disease.
* '''Reconstructed''': [[WeWillNotHaveAppendixesInTheFuture Humanity has evolved past the needs for digestive and urinary systems]], and there for, don't have any reason to use bathrooms.
* '''Played For Laughs''': In a DeconstructiveParody, PottyFailure ensues.
* '''Played For Drama''': TheHero dies because he never used the toilet.
