* {{Egregious}} Delay, where there is no discernible reason other than the makers wanting it that way. See also RuleOfCool.

* ''Film/JingleAllTheWay'' has the postal worker claim that there's a bomb in the package he's carrying in a desperate attempt to ward off police. After he flees the building (leaving said package behind), [[AccidentallyAccurate it actually goes off]].

** A similar bomb also hit the ''U.S.S. Arizona'', though the sailors have even less time to react before the detonator triggers and breaks the battleship in half.

* Gag Delay version in ''Film/WelcomeToDongmakgol''. The MexicanStandoff between North and South Korean soldiers ends when one of the NK soldiers accidentally drops his grenade. SK Lt. Pyo goes JumpingOnAGrenade but it doesn't explode. Pyo gives his NK counterpart Lee a look of withering contempt and chucks the grenade aimlessly over his shoulder, into the storehouse--where it explodes, wrecking the storehouse.

* The heavily armored Japanese carrier ''Taiho'' was hit by a single torpedo from the submarine USS ''Albacore''. It did relatively little immediate damage, aside from splitting open a tank of aviation fuel. All that heavy armor, designed to keep explosive shells out, also kept fuel vapor in. Six and a half hours later...

* Franchise/{{Gundam}}. ''The entire franchise'' (and many RealRobot shows thereafter). [[HumongousMecha Mobile suits]] are MadeOfExplodium, so you just ''know'' they're going to blow up when they're critically damaged, but very often there's a Shoe-Drop Delay so the victim can display an OhCrap face before his mobile suit explodes. Of course, if the fatally damaged mecha contains a major character, there may well be a full on Egregious Delay to let the character give his dying speech.

* {{Manga/AKIRA}} had a BrickJoke example near the beginning, where an extremist tries to set off a grenade in a police station only to have it fizzle out. As the main characters are walking away from the building minutes later, an explosion comes from said station.
