* ''UchuuSenkanYamato'' (Star Blazers), esp. the second season: the Argo/Yamato's main armament beams enter (or sometimes go completely through) the enemy ship at one or more points, then there is a brief interval before the entire ship is ripped apart by explosions.

** They saw the bomb, but not a counter. It could have been set for a certain time. And given the usual cliche, extremely funny.

* Averted in the MadeForTV film ''SpecialBulletin'' when [[spoiler: a news crew accidentally catches a nuclear explosion. The audience sees the mushroom cloud and immediate blast wave following it]].

* A RunningGag in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' is Mario destroying the castle he clears by stepping on a dynamite switch and blowing up the castle, with seemingly random success. Once, when Mario steps on the plunger, the fuse seems to break right before it hits the castle. Mario goes to inspect it... and ''then'' the castle blows up, resulting in an AshFace for Mario.

* Attacking red frogs in ''{{Spelunky}}'' will trigger this in them. As such, due to both this and their unpredictable jumping patterns, they're among the more dangerous beasts to encounter in the game.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/ABridgeTooFar''. American paratroopers are running towards a seemingly undefended bridge when the Germans blow it up in their faces. Everyone dives for cover, but afterwards their officer advances cautiously to see if there's anything left. Two more charges go off, [[HumiliationConga soaking him in river water]]. His response is an understandably bitter "Shit!"

* A first season episode of ''{{Chuck}}'' has Chuck and Casey scrambling out of Casey's SUV when Chuck recognizes the ringing cellphone in the back seat as an [=NSA=] bomb. They have enough time to get clear and for Casey to glare at Chuck for making a mistake before the fireball engulfs the car.
