-->'''Kevyn:''' 3TT... Three teraton... Captain, that's not a nuclear yield. That's the kind of label you'd see on a conversion bomb. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Just ''one'' of those will take out the kitesfear, the entire hellevator, and then severely, irreparably irradiate this side of Luna.]]

* Various ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}' Mantras dictate there must be at least one explosion per episode. Most of the early Myths were small scale booms (I.E. an exploding cellphone, or blowing up a house using bug bombs). Then came the myth that cherry bombs could remove concrete after it solidified in a mixer truck. After escalating to dynamite and only chipping the surface of the mess (just the thinner layers got removed), the gang tried [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome several hundred pounds of ANFO]].

* ''Jimmy-Timmy Power Hour 2'', the second crossover between ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventures OfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', reaches its climax when Professor Calamitous uses Jorgen's magic powers to create the "Big Bang Bomb," literally, an enormous bomb a thousand times bigger than your conventional explosives, set to destroy ''the whole universe'' when it goes off. Calamitous plans to shield himself from the blast under an equally large... table.

* MatthewReilly usually uses high yield explosives in his books, but occasionally uses these when a nuke would be impractical.

* The aptly named 'Big Bob-omb' from ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' onwards. He's already pretty big in his debut, but it's in MarioParty where he ends up being shown as absolutely massive. Don't let him explode in the mini games 'Defuse or Lose' or 'You're the Bob-omb', otherwise the player character ends up flying through the air and smashing into the ground hard enough to make a sizable crater.

-->'''Tagon:''' Do you know how big they are?
-->'''Massey:'''About the size of a watermelon.
-->'''Tagon:''' I mean the yield...Kilotons? Megatons?
-->'''Massey:''' The label said "3TT-Yield".
-->'''Kevyn:''' 3TT... Three teraton... Captain, that's not a nuclear yield. That's the kind of label you'd see on a conversion bomb. [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Just ''one'' of those will take out the kitesfear, the entire hellevator, and then severely, irreparably irradiate this side of Luna.]]

* ''HunterXHunter'' features a device called "Little Rose". Said device combines this trope with WhyAmITicking and produces a cloud in the form of a rose flower when [[UsefulNotes/NuclearWeapons used]]. While officially banned as inhuman, a sufficiently trustworthy character mentions that those deviced were embedded in millions. In the CrapsackWorld of the series, death by suicide bombing is better than ending up as either [[BodyHorror chimera]] [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman ant soldier]] or chimera ant soldier [[ImAHumanitarian food]]. [[spoiler: As the only shown explosion was a HeroicSacrifice of a RetiredBadass, it is not known if the shown destructive power is linked to the individual's power level.]]
