** Balors have had this ability since the beginning of the game. Draconians from DragonLance were notorious for these nasty deaths. A wizard breaking a Staff of the Magi or Staff of Power can invoke this trope, though the damage is ''technically'' survivable.

* The ''{{Discworld}}'' fic by Creator/AAPessimal, '''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11536013/1/Hyperemesis-gravidarum Hyperemesis Gravidarum]]''', has an explosives-minded Assassin giving creative thought to Agatean Fireclay, and reflecting that a golem made of explosive clay, with a suitably written suicide-chem in its head directing it to the location of the client, would be an elegant weapon for inhumation. Lord Vetinari advises her to turn her mind to ''less dangerous'' lines of philosophical reflection. She also reflects that Adora Belle Dearheart would have words to say to an Assassin seeing golems as disposable weapons, and decides it's safer to shelve the idea.

* The Poppers from ''VideoGame/XCom: Apocalypse'', small, blue, two-legged aliens whose one attack is to run up to your agents and explode with a huge blast radius. Very deadly in the early game. Oh, and they also explode if you kill them with explosive/incendiary weapons. Their explosion is slightly more powerful than the dedicated Heavy Explosive produced by Marsec. Said Heavy Explosive is essentially a TimeBomb used for demolition work, meaning it is also an IncrediblyObviousBomb. Yep.

** ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' has the Flood Carrier Forms. And the [[DemonicSpiders suicide grunts]]. Really, anything stuck by a plasma grenade instantly becomes this (including other spartans in multiplayer). The suicide grunts are just volunteering.

* ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple'': One test obstacle is a black, floating mine that will charge at specific targets when they get within a certain radius, detonating on impact. They react not only to the player, but also wall-mounted turrets.

* Boom Slimes in ''VideoGame/SlimeRancher'' have been known to suddenly explode. [[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.
