'''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.
** The BigBad [[KickTheDog causes all the bathrooms to become unusable for some reason]].
* '''Exploited''': Since nobody poops, the characters have more time to do things that would have otherwise been wasted by bathroom breaks, they also have less chance on missing out on things, and they can have babies without having to resort to TheDiaperChange. And nobody has to worry that pools are contaminated by people PuttingThePeeInPool, because they don't pee!
* '''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.
