* ''Film/IndependenceDayResurgence''. Julius Levinson foolishly drives a schoolbus with children into Area 51, figuring it's the safest place to be (the aliens tried to destroy it in the last movie, so he should know better). Instead the bus ends up being chased by a [[{{Kaiju}} giant queen alien]], who's rather pissed off after its spaceship got destroyed and is apparently intent on taking it out on the first humans it sees.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'': In the episode "Legends," a literal bus full of nuns is on a collision course with a truck full of dynamite. Rescuing the nuns distracts the Flash enough to get him captured by [[CaptainErsatz Dr. Blizzard]] after he had easily won their fight. However, given the reveal of the next episode, [[spoiler:the actual villain had likely warped reality to make it so Dr. Blizzard wouldn't lose before he was supposed to.]]

* ''WesternAnimation:SupermanTheANimatedSeries'': In "My Girl", Superman crashes a weapons deal by one of Lex Luthor's lackeys. Despite the guns being futuristic laser guns that cause things to explode, [[ShootingSuperman they prove to have the same effect on Superman as any other gun]]. The lackey then spots a train in the distance heading towards a bridge and uses the gun to blow that up instead, forcing Superman to save the train while the lackey gets away.

* The opening scene of the movie ''Meltdown'' (also known as ''High Risk'') has the hero trying to disarm a bomb that's been attached to a bus not only filled with schoolkids, but also has his wife on board. [[spoiler: However, he cuts the wrong wire and the bus blows up, killing everyone inside. Yeah, it's not a very cheerful start.]]

* This trope nearly happens in ''My Life In Ruins'', but the bus is not yet hanging from the cliff, the driver manages to stop it just in time.
* The climax of ''The Oxford Murders'' involves a threat to an actual bus full of innocents.

* Attempted in ''Series/{{Gotham}}'' with a bus full of cheerleaders. Thankfully, it failed. The point Jerome Valeska tried and failed to prove with that bus? EveryCarIsAPinto, even those that are yellow and have a long wheelbase.

* ''Film/TheSiege'' plays this trope ''twice'', where the terrorists have taken a Bus Full of Innocents and packed explosives into it to prove their point.

Then he tries to persuade them to release the old folks, and as they are getting off, the bomb detonates and there's a massive incinerating explosion.]]
