* The ''{{Metroid}}'' series features the Morph Ball Bombs, and ExplosionPropulsion is arguably their primary function. Most of them that you'll ever use will be to send Samus airborne while she's in Morph Ball form.

* Toward the end of ''[[PixarShorts Tokyo Mater]]'', [[WesternAnimation/{{Cars}} Mater]] is forced to get to TokyoTower as part of a drift race before the villain does (because if he loses, then he will lose his modifications), and in the process, he is launched into the air by a construction site fire caused by Dragon [=McQueen=].

StuffBlowingUp in movies and TV is cool and very common. When the hero isn't [[UnflinchingWalk calmly walking away]] from an explosion, they're running away from it while ''still'' being caught by the blastwave and sent flying several meters onto conveniently located soft materials. Characters who become wise to this method of ExplosivePropulsion will devise plans (improvised as often as not) where their escape or pursuit of the bad guys is accelerated by blowing stuff up behind them.

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': Inquisitor Kryptmann applied this method to an entire ''moon'' containing a dormant genestealer brood, sending it into the Warp so that it would emerge light-years later in the middle of the ork-infested Octarius system. This caused a Tyranid hive fleet to follow the genestealers' signal, but Kryptmann had every planet in the way Exterminatused to deny the 'nids the biomass they need to replensih their forces. Meaning that on arrival, the fleet wasn't strong enough to destroy the orks (who reproduce by being killed), and are now trapped in a ForeverWar, with the caveat that whoever wins the war will be entirely unstoppable.
