* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8RY_ibNq3c The PEPCON]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PEPCON_disaster plant explosion]]: a rocket fuel factory that manufactured ammonium perchlorate (the oxidizer in solid rocket fuel) caught fire and BLEW UP; the biggest of the explosions registered 3.0 and 3.5 on the Richter scale and destroyed a significant portion of nearby Henderson, Nevada, shattering windows as far away as 10 miles.

* The [[MnogoNukes Tsar Bomba]], the largest nuclear device ever built in RealLife, was so big that even the largest bombers the Soviets had couldn't fly it without special modifications (they had to remove the bomb bay doors to fit it in and remove 2 fuel tanks to decrease the weight of the plane once it was loaded).

* Buster Machine III, a.k.a. the Black Hole Bomb in ''Anime/{{Gunbuster}}''. Part of it's construction involved compressing the planet Jupiter into a shell roughly two-thirds the size of the Moon. [[spoiler:When detonated, it swallows the entire core of the Milky Way galaxy.]]

* ''Film/PacificRim'' gives us [[http://static3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130730110244/pacificrim/images/9/90/Art-striker-6.jpg this]]. A 2,400 thermonuclear explosive, attached to a [[HumongousMecha Jaeger's]] back, the detonation is equivilant to 1.2 ''million tons'' of TNT exploding, which results in a massive bubble of air being created underwater.

* 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, or blowing up a tree cannon with five pounds of black powder--which admittedly was a pretty spectacular explosion). 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]].

* The Theronian Bomb in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3: Corruption''. It's parts need to be collected and assembled manually, using Samus' gunship (and the individual parts are still a lot bigger than the ship) to be dropped on the Seed shield on Elysia. The explosion certainly is more than enough to break the shield.

** ''VideoGame/AceCombatZeroTheBelkanWar''-- the MPBM. A weapon only used by the CoolPlane, the ADFX-0# Morgan. While it's technically a missile, it's more like a VideoGame/StarFox Smart Bomb- and it's the size of said CoolPlane's Cockpit. The resultant Boom is the second largest blast in the game (the only larger is a {{Nuke|Em}}). The RealLife "Daisy Cutter" Fuel-Air Explosive Bomb (see below) is also in this game, and its blast is pretty big, but has nothing on the MPBM's almighty SphereOfDestruction.

** America's early deplorable hydrogen bombs weren't much better. They were essentially still used a Fatman type warhead as the primary and had truely gigantic secondaries. While this is already bulky, the whole apparatus had to be encased in several climate proofing layers which ''then'' had to be held in a truly massive refrigerator unit to keep the components from degrading. B-36s, the largest bomber ever, were required to move these monstrosities around.
