cleaning Captain Obvious trope sinkhole use, project thread here
* ''Film/BadTaste'' by Creator/PeterJackson features a gratuitous exploding sheep near the end. But given this was back in Jackson's gore and splatter fest days, you could just see it coming. Also things tend to explode [[CaptainObvious when hit by an RPG.]]

** Equally as bad for dead whales, which are [[CaptainObvious massive]]. There was one case of a small town being covered in whale guts and blubber because the gases inside the body built up pressure, causing it to explode while people were moving the body through town.

%%** Pictured above, the best is the [[TheUltimateResistance French Sheep Strike]] from ''Worms Armageddon'': Basically, five flaming sheep fall out of the sky, explode as they hit the ground, but continue to bounce about the area exploding on contact with anything, spraying flames as they go. A truly magnificent sight, all to the tune of La Marseillaise. * ''SpyroTheDragon''.

* ''RatchetAndClankGoingCommando'' had the Sheepinator weapon which [[BalefulPolymorph turned enemies into sheep]]. [[EvolvingAttack Use it enough]] and it will upgrade to the Black Sheepinator, which makes the sheep walk up to other enemies and explode. * During one mission of ''ArmedAndDangerous'', a drunken explosives expert trying to defuse a bomb attached to a kidnapped prize sheep accidentally sets it off.

* In ''SimGolf'', turn the balls into exploding sheep by pressing CTRL and S and letting go, then typing BOMBSHEEP. * ''GemFighterOnline'' has a cash-bought exocore transformation (dubbed "Sheep's Cry" in the US release) features an explosion technique. The explosion is a translucent red version of the sheep's outer image expanded out around the character. While it causes damage and knockback to enemies, the sheep itself is unaffected by it.

* On an episode of ''TheTonightShow'' with Johnny Carson, his character, the psychic Carnac the Magnificent, predicts "Sis boom bah!" as the answer to a card sealed in an envelope (one of his signature tricks). As seen above, the card refers to "the sound made when a sheep explodes". The resulting riotous laughter from Carson, his co-host Ed [=McMahon=], and the audience, literally stopped the show cold for several minutes.

** Inadvertently so in the Falklands Islands. British military engineers charged with making safe after the war were less than enchanted that their Argentinian counterparts, in defiance of accepted Health and Safety practice, had set up minefields in a haphazard random way and had not kept any sort of record as to where and how many mines they'd used. To this day sheep still go "bang" in parts of East Falkland.
