* The ride-portion of both the ''Ride/EarthquakeTheBigOne'' and ''Ride/{{Disaster}}'' attractions at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal Studios Florida]] had a propane truck immediately igniting upon hitting a subway column. Though since it was a propane truck, there is ''some'' justification.

** An obligatory parody had Meg race a man on a horse drawn carriage. The man loses control on a sharp turn and crashes through the guard rail. The carriage bursts into flame and the horse lands upright, notices what happened to the carriage, and flashes a nervous look to the viewer just before he too explodes. [[StealthPun Maybe the horse was a 'pinto'.]]

** In "Something Smells", when [=SpongeBob=] jumps on a boat's windshield and blinds the driver with his horrible breath, the car stops and suddenly explodes [[RuleOfFunny without crashing into anything at all]].

* Parodied in the ''WesternAnimation/PennZeroPartTimeHero'' episode "Chuckle City", where the heroes and villains are in a dimension inhabited entirely by clowns and therefore runs entirely on clown logic. When a police cruiser crashes into a canyon, it deploys a [[BangFlagGun "Boom!" flag]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/CrookedHouse'', [[spoiler:Lady Edith]]'s car explodes after driving off a cliff in a quarry. In this case, the explosion is a visual shorthand to inform the viewer that the occupants of the car are dead without having to show the bodies.

* ''Film/{{Eraser}}'' involves a car being struck by a train moments before the end of the film. Given that this was a real effects shot with a car actually being struck by a locomotive, though, it's at least excusable that they wanted to break up the car a little bit to try to avoid any unfortunate derailing during filming.

* In ''VideoGame/MadMax'', cars will burst into flames when they take enough damage. Odd, considering the fairly realistic cars in the [[Film/MadMax movies]].

* In ''Film/TheRock'', Sean Connery unlocks every trope in the car chase achievement guide -- the fruit cart, the near-brush with pedestrians, the delivery truck with no sides -- before hitting an *electric go-cart*, which causes a multiple-car explosion. Naturally, Connery keeps driving unharmed.

* At the very end of ''Disney/AGoofyMovie'', there is a hilarious use of this. This movie had not used a lot of slapstick comedy before this moment, so it comes as a complete surprise when Goofy kicks his car, which was a little broken and he smiles and points at it, resulting in a {{beat}} after which the ''entire'' car ''BLOWS THE HELL UP'' and knocks Goofy straight up out of his socks until he crashes through Roxanne's roof.
