* In ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'', every Ghost defeated by Panty and Stocking explodes, with a cut to a [[StylisticSuck cheesy]] live-action model of the Ghost being blown up with pyrotechnics. This becomes plot-relevant in episode 8 when Panty and Stocking are on trail for murdering a ghost named Mr. Husband Petter. Their monkey defense attorney points out that the victim didn't explode as he would have if he had been killed by the Anarchy Sisters, and that the marks on the body give away the real murderer as [[spoiler:Mrs. Petter]]. Also, in episode 13, [[spoiler:[[ScaryBlackMan Garterbelt]] and [[BigBad Corset]] explode the same way when killed, with Garterbelt even ''un-exploding'' when he is brought back to life, complete with a reversed DeathCryEcho]].

* As seen above with Bugzzy, this happens to almost every MonsterOfTheWeek that appears in ''Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa''. However, this didn't happen to all of them.

* ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'': Justified in that enemies are almost always robots. On the [[VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog rare occasions they aren't]], they tend to die sans explosions.

** In the first Warcraft, Ogres inexplicably exploded into a bloody mess when destroyed, preventing their skeletons from being [[AnimateDead raised]].
** In ''Warcraft II'', while ogres now left corpses, the newly introduced dragon units combust in a fiery explosion when killed, possibly a result of their fire breath. Their alliance counterpart, Gryphons, explode when killed as well, this time into LudicrousGibs.

* In ''[[VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesTurtlesInTime Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Hyperstone Heist]]'' for Genesis, not only did the robotic Foot Soldiers explode, but all of the organic bosses, bar Shredder himself, such as Rocksteady and Leatherhead use the explosion defeat animation.

* [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Angels]] in ''Webcomic/KillSixBillionDemons'' are [[EnergyBeings spirits of primordial fire]] from the VoidBetweenTheWorlds who require special armour to exist in the physical universe. Damaging the armour badly enough can force them back into the Void -- but anyone inclined to try should really consider the "[[http://killsixbilliondemons.com/comic/wielder-of-names-6-112/ primordial fire]]" bit.

* The Bomb enemies in ''VideoGame/{{Miitopia}}'' naturally go out that way, and they damage nearby enemies by doing so. [[spoiler:The FinalBoss and the [[BonusBoss Dark Sun]] both explode spectacularly after being defeated, although in the former's case, its essence lingers on afterwards]].

MadeOfExplodium. Not to be confused with OutWithABang, which involves dying in a more...pleasurable way.
