* The Cain in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' is specifically explained to ''not'' be nuclear in nature � it's simply a large, explosive-filled shell launched at relativistic velocities towards a target. Since the resulting impact is powerful enough to create the characteristic mushroom cloud, it's referred to as the 'Nuke Gun' by its users in-universe, and has radioactivity symbols plastered all over it. Presumably this is just clever product marketing by the Cain's manufacturers.

* In real life, aside from nuclear weapons, mushroom clouds can be caused by very powerful volcanic eruptions and certain very powerful military bombs such as the conventional GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb and thermobaric (such as "fuel-air") bombs.
* When the German city of Hamburg was deliberately targeted with thousand-bomber raids loaded up with incendiary bombs, the weather conditions were such that all the smaller fires joined up into one enromous firestorm. RAF pilots reported seeing the city as one enormous mushroom-shaped cloud, created by the intensity of the fire and the ground-draft piling it up into one huge plume.

* The All-Out Attacks in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' result in a mushroom cloud when they finish off the enemy party. Its sequel, ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', added a dark gray wisps to it to give it a comical "skull-shaped" aspect, which was then put back into the UpdatedRerelease ''{{Persona 3}} Portable''.

* In ''DukeNukem3D'' a mushroom cloud is literally the ''only'' explosion effect, which is used on everything from demolished buildings, blown-up cracks in the wall, rockets, and even the miniature [[MacrossMissileMassacre Devastator missiles]].

* At one point in ''Take it Back'' by Creator/PinkFloyd a mushroom appears over skyscrapers of a distant city, the road the viewer is on is quickly destroyed and everything is blown away. Only it's not an explosion. The mushroom is an enormous puffball, and the whole event is nature destroying concrete jungle.

* Played for drama in the AlternateHistoryDotCom timeline ''Literature/ProtectAndSurviveATimeline''.

An American officer witnesses the explosion, mistakes it for a nuclear strike, orders a retaliatory nuclear strike, and things go downhill from there.

Sideshow Bob then comments that "he HAD to go for the retro charm".

* Pretty much ''every'' conventional explosive, from TNT-rockets, to iron bombs in ''RedAlert3'' causes a small mushroom-shaped cloud to appear. And this is a setting in which nuclear weapons are specifically mentioned to have ''never'' been developed.
