An outhouse; an outside no-running-water toilet in a small shed. True "Thunder Pavillions" are located at a cottage and situated out in the woods. Being a little "rough" and "ramshackle" helps. The door doesn't always close all the way. There also isn't necessarily a seat: a simple hole in a piece of plywood is often all there is. Common items found inside a Thunder Pavillion include cobwebs, a tin of ashes or lime, dust, 1-ply toilet paper, an old empty stubby beer bottle, and a stick. Normally used only in "desperate" situations, it can be a place of mystery, intrigue, and fear. Women traditionally do not use thunder pavillions; however they will if no other options exist. A moon cut into the door is a common marking. The thunder pavillion's natural habitat is in northern Ontario, Canada, but can be found worldwide nowadays.

"I had to go so bad I had a turtlehead, but Buddy was in the bathroom, so I had to go use the Thunder Pavillion!" "I didn't want to stink up the cottage so I used the Thunder Pavillion."
