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/herself 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 s/he's a dog, or a dog turned into a human. It is 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.
There's also the joke where a dog pees on someone and another character remarks, "He wants you for his own!", since male dogs pee on things to mark their territory.
Often a form of Vulgar Humor.

- 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.

- It returns in Postal 4, mostly doing the same thing, but an update added an item related to it; a capsule of experimental pills that turned the piss stream into, uh...a significantly higher-pressure version. Like, the same water effects used by fire hydrants in the game.

- 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.
- 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 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 arsenal built around piss.

Later, Cat finds another golden hydrant only to get eaten by a crocodile along with Dog and the Greasers. Dog and the Greasers walk toward Cat with longing looks while Cat clings to the golden hydrant and begs them to stay away. We then cut to outside of the crocodile, where Cat remarks that at least now they know that the hydrant is real, implying that Dog and the Greasers pissed on Cat.
- Code Lyoko:
- In one episode, Jeremie creates a robotic dog named Kiwi 2 who is so lifelike, it needs to be walked, and "pees" oil if it isn't.

- Including cheetahs, such as the female who infamously sprayed inside an observing biologist's vehicle's sun roof on Big Cat Diary.
- Unfixed or jealous (male and female) rabbits do this when marking territory or as courtship.

- "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.
- Bird poop is actually mostly composed of the bird's form of urine, a white goop called uric acid. This is so it can get out easier via the cloaca, a utility opening in the bird's rear that both functions as waste disposal and mating for both sexes. The little dot in the middle is the actual stool, the rest is just bird pee. It doesn't mix too well with water, which is why it's so hard to get off of your car. What makes this count is that certain small birds, such as pigeons, actually use this as a defense mechanism; they release their bombs before flying to lighten their load and as such, get away from a potential predator faster.
- A common belief among little kids seems to be that when it rains, God is peeing on everyone. Curiously, most kids who believe this don't seem grossed out by rain.
- Guy pees through his pants while being arrested
