* A variant of the grenade hooked-to-the-door trick shown in the trope picture was very popular during the Utica, N.Y. mob wars of the 1960s-70s. The hitman would pop the car door of the individual he wanted to go away, jam a grenade under the gas pedal, then flatten a closet hanger, slip the hook under the grenade pin and then (very carefully) twist the bent middle of the hanger around the inside door handle. Opening the door pulled the pin and the grenade went off just as the vic was sitting down, solving da boss's problem with dispatch. It was used with great success several times before people wised up.

* In an early episode of ''SgtFrog'', Giroro rigs the Hinata household with these to ensure no one gets in the way. This requires a quick definition which the GagDub makes the obvious joke on.

* In ''Fanfic/TheWitchOfTheEverfree'', on top of all the traps ''already'' in the Princesses' old castle, Sunset adds some new ones of her own. ** She also sets up a huge one for Celestia during the Summer Sun Celebration, which she repurposes for [[spoiler:use against Nightmare Moon]] when it becomes clear that [[spoiler:she actually exists]]. [[StuffBlowingUp It levels half of Ponyville's town hall when it goes off]].

* [[XWingSeries Rogue Squadron]], when the world they were hiding on was discovered, left a lot of explosive traps for the Imperials. Said Imperials did work their way through all of them, but exactly what they were trying to achieve is up in the air. They didn't need anything that had been left on that world and they knew the Rogues had already left.

* As mentioned in the page quote, "Booby Trap" is the title of the first episode of ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'' (and ''{{Robotech}}''). It refers to the SDF-1/''Macross'' having been set up to automatically fire at any Zentradi ships when they approached it.

Providing the page quote, ''Series/BurnNotice''. starting from the pilot onward, Michael Westen would [[MacGyvering MacGyver]] up a booby trap based on whatever he can find on-hand. He potentially outdid Series/MacGyver for the sheer number of improvised traps and distractions.
