Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* The Delayed Blast Fireball spell in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. Although technically a time bomb, Delayed Blast Fireball can equally well be used to generate a Shoe-Drop Delay. Its implementation in ''BaldursGate'' was such that it is most often used just as a regular fireball, but the 'delayed' part turns it into an Expository Delay.

* ''TimeCrisis 3'' has enemy guards raiding the boat of the two protagonists, only to see a bomb tick down to zero followed with "Bye!" displayed on the timer.

* The explosives-laden destroyer in the [[WorldWarTwo St. Nazarre raid]] didn't explode until several hours after it was supposed to, serving as a Gag Delay (apparently it went off right as the German commander was mocking the British attempt to ram the docks with a destroyer, doing almost no damage) and a very Impolite Delay (it held off long enough to catch a lot of German souvenir-hunters on deck).

* ''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.
