* In ''RatchetDeadlocked'', all contestants of the [=DreadZone=] show, including Ratchet, Clank and Al, are fitted with one of these called a Deadlock Collar. Straying into a restricted area will cause the wearer to be electrocuted, whilst behaving unco-operatively or worse, boring, will cause the collar to blow their heads off (both actions can also be done on command). This factors into gameplay as well; if during the co-op mode the two players stray too far from each other, a timer will start for 15 seconds for them to get closer together. If they don't, [[{{Understatement}} they lose a bit of weight in the upper body area]].

* In ''Webcomic/TwoEvilScientists'', Eggman installs a bomb in the head of Metal Sonic to keep the robot from rebelling against him. When Metal inevitably decides to rebel, [[spoiler: Eggman sets it off, only to find out that it was a pointless effort, since Metal's nanites can just rebuild his head.]]

* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' does it with the Gurren Lagann itself -- Simon [[spoiler:was scheduled to be executed]], but he still ''had to'' kick some alien butt before it reached the city, so he asked [[spoiler:Rossiu]] to have his HumongousMecha packed with explosives. To insure he didn't make a HeroicSacrifice, they also had Kittan's sister Kinon ride along in the mech, herself carrying several explosive ''strapped to her chest'', because Simon definitely wouldn't sacrifice ''someone else's'' life.

* In Creator/MichaelMoorcock's ''Hawkmoon'' series, Howkmoon, captured by the all-conquering power of [=GranBretan=] during the conquest of his native province of Köln, has the deadly Black Jewel implanted into his forehead to ensure his compliance. He is then sent to the hold-out state of Camargue to act as =[GranBretan=]'s puppet, posing as a refugee. He is controlled via the Jewel, enabling remote controllers to see through his eyes and monitor his every move. Any sign of rebellion means he can be punished with agonising pain.

* In ''Literatre/TheNekropolisArchives'', the Dominari, Nekropolis's crime syndicate, ensure that no one goes spilling any secrets they shouldn't by requiring all their members to be implanted with a parasitic tongue worm. It lays dormant unless the host tries to betray the Dominari, in which case it detonates and blows up their head.

* The film ''Film/{{Fortress}}'' takes place in a huge futuristic prison. To keep the prisoners in line, each one is forced to swallow a device called an intestinizer. If they act up, the intestinizer activates and causes them tremendous pain. If they get really out of line, it explodes.
