Urine Trouble

Go To
Fred Jones: Scrappy, I told you: no urinating on Daphne!
Scrappy-Doo: It was an accident!
Fred: You were marking your territory!

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. It can also happen to a human character. 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.

Subtrope of Toilet Humour. See also Dogs Are Dumb, I Ate WHAT?!, Cats Are Mean, Yellow Snow, Road Apples, and Dung Fu. When babies do this, it's a Tinkle in the Eye.

  • Dragon Ball:
    • 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 Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone movie when Gohan, after getting drunk from eating a fruit, pees on Krillin's head. Keep in mind that Gohan was no older than 4 at the time.

Kohaku then gets furious at them because she thinks they're going to make her sister drink their pee, but they quickly explain they're just using it to treat the mixture for the medicine.
  • 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!"

  • Akamaru, of Naruto, is actually capable of pin-point projectile urination while spinning around in all directions, which Kiba calls "Dynamic Marking".

    • 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...)
      Ah, what a beautiful rainbow!
    • 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).
  • 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.
  • In Pokémon Adventures: Emerald has a weird habit of pissing from open windows or balconies.

(The US release alters the scene so that Emerald is emptying a can of soda instead.)

  • 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.)

  • 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).
  • In Far Cry Primal, when Takkar The Beastmaster goes to visit the cave of Wogah the Crafter, he falls into a trap that Wogah built to capture members of the Udam tribe.

  • Monster Hunter 2 (dos): The Shogun Ceanataur has an attack where it shoots what appears to be a beam of water from the jaws of the skull it wears as a shell. Except, according to Word of God, that "water" is actually gallons of its pee, expelled at such a speed to ward off any predators and Hunters. Monster Hunter: Rise Sunbreak gives Ceanataur a detailed anus to make the point particularly clear, though you can only see it if you break its shell.
  • 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 to gain the ability 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.
  • 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.
  • Postal 2 and Postal III allows The Postal Dude to unzip his pants and start whizzing on anything nearby as a Joke Weapon that does no damage. However, it can make civilians vomit and flee if the whiz gets in their mouth, and it can be used to extinguish fires. When the Dude gets gonorrhea on Friday, pissing on civilians will make them instantly and continuously vomit. The Enhanced Mode unlocked upon beating the game lets you piss napalm.
    • It returns in Postal 4: No Regerts, 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 Postal: Brain Damaged, the Postal Dude can consume items like liquid nitrogen, hot sauce and suspicious moonshine to temporarily give his urine different properties; the liquid nitrogen freezes enemies on contact, the hot sauce sets them on fire and the suspicious moonshine confuses enemies into making them attack each other.

  • 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.
    Spy: Is this...?! MON DIEU!!!
    • 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.

However, they also pee as an Excrement Statement, as in bunny language, peeing on something that isn't yours is an ultimate insult, along with getting a point across that they are really angry with someone.
  • "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, rats 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 (of course, rodent controllers use this to their advantage by using UV flashlights, for example): 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 [2]
  • Caves and hollows inhabited by large numbers of bats can build up toxic levels of ammonia fumes from the flying mammals' collective urine output. The chief exception are vampire bats, whose extremely fast-acting kidneys allow them to shed most of the water-weight of a blood meal on the spot, within just two minutes of feeding. (So yes, if one nibbles on you in the night, it'll wet the bed before flying off.)
