All that's left are one warrior who was out of the system at the time, and accidentally broke his Glory Device, [[spoiler: and some cryogenically frozen females in a VUX admiral's collection.]]

* This is the thing that sets Boom Slimes apart from other slimes in ''Videogame/{{Slime Rancher}}''. [[NighInvulnerability Not that this does any damage to themselves or any of the other slimes.]] This makes them rather hard to keep, as more than a few of them can cause chain reactions to launch themselves out of their pen or knock you out.

* Similar to, and more reliable than, the walker trick, a player in WarhammerFantasy 8th Edition can try to cast a spell with more power than their wizard can safely handle, hoping for an "unlucky" miscast surge of violent magical energy. This can be devastating when the wizard is in a unit, and his unit is on the losing end of an engagement.
