* Happens in a ''PvP'' strip concluding a storyline about Brent becoming a gamer after wearing Skulls "Fez Of Power". After escaping the influence of the Fez, Brent finds out that during his brief delusional state, he (a hardcore Mac fanboy) ordered a Windows-based gaming PC. Cue Brent crying hysterically in the shower.

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00nwJcEzXIM this]] ''Sims 2'' machinima set to My Chemical Romance's "Helena", the protagonist is a woman in an [[DomesticAbuse abusive relationship]]. One scene has her crying while sitting in the shower.


Contrast RedemptionInTheRain -- a joyful, liberating shower in the rain. Can also be an instance of OutDamnedSpot if the showering is because a character is trying to wash away guilt.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse'': In Peter Parker's flashback to his past as Spider-Man, along with his {{Unreliable Exposit|or}}ion, he notably mentions after his divorce with Mary Jane, "I handled it like a champ." Then we see Peter curled up and crying in the shower while still wearing his Spider-Man costume.

* Parodied in ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' where Tristan is washing him self up in a lake, he's muttering "Must... wash... away... the sin..."



[[folder:Roleplay]]
* In ''Roleplay/DeptHeavenApocrypha'', this is [[spoiler:Meria]]'s first reaction to having been cheated on by [[spoiler:Seth]] the day after they first slept together. (Given the character, her breakdown [[FromBadToWorse picked]] [[DrowningMySorrows up]] [[RevengeBeforeReason speed]] quickly, but...) The example is a little unusual in that we never actually ''see'' her in the shower -- it's just mentioned by another character that she's been crying in there for hours.

* Parodied in ''WebVideo/TheGuild'' when a fully-clothed Vork takes one of these in someone else's shower after learning that Clara had betrayed his trust (i.e. [[SeriousBusiness corpse-camped him]] in VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft.)
* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic suffered an absolutely epic psychotic meltdown when he reviewed ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIII''. He tells us all to sit back and enjoy it. Five minutes later, he's having a Shower of Angst, as pictured above, spews {{Angrish}} and yells a long stream of psychotic screams and grunts.
** [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses Sean Fausz]], of ''Epic Fail'', has crying in shower to Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" as a RunningGag.
*** And in reference, WebVideo/PawDugan did the same thing in his review of Total Distortion with it being a music game that is devoid of good music.
*** The game over music would like to have a word with you.

* Used in TheOrangeInsanity's [[http://youtu.be/AcJMqIyOVL8?t=17m39s review]] of ''Film/TheCatInTheHat'', as a reaction to the scene where [[spoiler:The Cat yells "Son of a bitch" in front of the children]], together with [[InelegantBlubbering loud sobbing]] and [[StylisticSuck screaming an utterly broken]] version of ''Unfaithful'' by Rihanna.

* Parodied in WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries where Tristan is washing him self up in a lake, he's muttering "Must.. wash.. away.. the sin"
* Parodied, like nearly every other breakup trope in WebVideo/{{Manwhores}}, with Kevin having a shower with his clothes still on during his post-breakup montage.
* ''WebVideo/{{yourchonny}}'' comically acts out one of these in his [[http://youtu.be/qqh9CKDJldE?t=45s "Getting out of the shower"]] video. While sobbing, goes to wipe his tears...with underwear his dad hung on the shower door. Cue horrified scream.

Of course, when it comes to {{fanservice}}, these showers of angst are solid gold (and no, not ''that'' kind of shower). You can't argue with the titillation provided by seeing a hot-bodied person nude, soaking wet, and [[TheWoobie in desperate need of support]] (though in most cases of Shower of Angst, the person showering will be so distraught or depressed that he or she will shower with clothes on, resulting in a SexySoakedShirt scene). However, in some cases, this can border on creepy, such as when a woman takes a shower of angst after being physically or [[RapeAsDrama sexually abused]] (or is [[BathSuicide suicidal and trying to kill herself by slashing her wrists and letting the running water bleed her dry]]). That particular version of the trope is common in soap operas, most serious movies, and cable dramas.
