* Some early [[UsefulNotes/ZXSpectrum Sinclair Research]] products using LED displays were so power-hungry that their batteries could overheat and blow up if the devices were left powered on too long. Most famously, the [[http://rk.nvg.ntnu.no/sinclair/calculators/executive.htm Sinclair Executive]], the world's first "slimline" pocket calculator, exploded in a Soviet diplomat's breast pocket, supposedly resulting in an official investigation revealing he'd forgotten to turn the blasted thing off. Of course, this flaw didn't stop the Executive from being a success. The [[ObviousBeta Sinclair Black Watch]], on the other hand...

** The Sinclair Executive (one of the first pocket calculators) and the Sinclair Black Watch (one of the first digital watches) were prone to failures that would cause the batteries to overheat and explode. This nearly caused a diplomatic incident when one of the calculators exploded in a Russian diplomat's pocket.

* The extra edition ''Anime/NarutoShippuden'' episode "The Directive to Take the Nine-Tails" begins with a scene straight out of Franchise/Frankenstein, with Orochimaru as the MadScientist doctor. The lightning strike used to bring his creature to life overloads the machines they're using and much exploding ensues.

* ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'' gives a meta-example. meta-example with [[CombiningMecha Devastator]]. Devastator is likely Creator/IndustrialLightAndMagic's greatest accomplishment to date. The scenes with him had such a massive level of detail that rendering him took the ILM equipment to its limits.

[[WhatCouldHaveBeen He was originally going to be play a bigger role]], but the destruction of a very expensive computer put an end to that. According to some of the crew, Devastator had so many moving parts and was so complex and detailed to animate that his animation model ended up ''frying one was the cause of the animation computers''!critical failure.
