In [[VideoGame/SpaceQuestThePiratesOfPestulon the third]], destroying the Stealth Field Generator on Ortega triggers a series of volcanic eruptions.

* ''VideoGame/HolyUmbrella'' subverts a couple of aspects of this trope: the Emperor Dondera is undefeated and on the loose when his castle is set to explode, and you don't have a chance of fleeing before time runs out (yet somehow things turn out all right).

* ''Series/MacGyver'': At the end of "Legend of the Holy Rose", the Temple of the Holy Rose collapses, burying all of Ambrose's miraculous artifacts (although Mac and the GirlOfTheWeek are outside at the time and so do not have to flee through the collapsing temple). Mac speculates that Ambrose had intended this to occur all along.

* Used ad nauseum in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''. By the time an episode is nearing its end, you just know that the whole place Batman is currently at is going to collapse or get destroyed in some contrived way.

** If anything, ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' is worse and moves this into outright trope abuse. It's almost assured that the final setpiece will explode into flames somehow, regardless of whether or not it makes any sense. Trying to make a drinking out of this trope '''WILL''' kill you.

Also combined with an attempt to depress bond if he survives by [[KillTheCutie trying to kill Bond's girlfriend of the week]], which if it succeeded, would have [[RecycledScript been reminiscent of]] {{Casino Royale}} .
