* ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' traditionally has "neurofeedback" -- whenever a 'Mech suffers an ammunition explosion, the pilot's neurohelmet that's a critical part of the user interface (but isn't connected so much to the ammo bins as to the machine's ''gyroscope'', which can in turn take damage without causing any similar fuss) basically delivers an electric shock directly to their grey matter.

* Analogue era submarines had high pressure seawater running to various gauges in the control room. Concussion from depth charges or diving too deep could start these spraying with lethal force.
* Steam engines (specifically the marine variety) required the operators to work in the vicinity of the boilers and/or steam delivery pipes, both of which could rupture when damaged (especially at gauges and valves) emitting jets of super-heated steam.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', a fight between Superman, Jax-Ur and Mala damage the bridge's controls of a starship. It's so bad, that it cause a chain reaction of explosions that completely destroy the ship.

Compare NoWaterProofingInTheFuture, HolographicTerminal (which doesn't explode -- just get spammed with pop ups). Should require NoOSHACompliance, although that point is rarely touched. Squat all to do with [[XylophoneGag musical instruments going kaboom]].

** Somewhat lampshaded in that deploying the communications buoy during an enormous hurricane was explicitly stated to be dangerous and run the risk of causing significant damage to the ''SeaQuest'' were something to go wrong.
*** Somewhat un-lampshaded in that this, the only time the ''SeaQuest'' was ever shown to deploy the communications buoy, was in the most dangerous conditions possible.

** To be fair, both ships were deliberately trying to do as much damage to the other as possible; besides, the Minbari were completely unprepared for the human attack, and the humans were completely unprepared for the power of Minbari weaponry.
