* ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'': GURPS: Ultratech contains stats for these. Mercifully if it takes enough damage in one blow to break it it won't explode - however if you fail to disarm it or it takes any damage it will blow up!

* ''Series/MacGyver'': In the first episode of third season, the Russians place an explosive leash around the neck of [=MacGyver's=] ex-girlfriend of the week, to coerce him to steal one of China's national treasures. This plot twist serves as the episode's cliffhanger, unusual since almost all of [=MacGyver's=] adventures were limited to single episodes.

** Earlier, in Part 2: ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureBattleTendency Battle Tendency]]'', Joseph promises to train and get better at fighting to become a more interesting opponent to Esidisi (though Joseph's real intent was to stall for time). Esidisi, liking Joseph's proposal, implants a small vial of poison into Joseph's body that will dissolve and release the poison 30 days later, Esidisi keeping the antidote on himself. Wamuu, observing what had transpired, decides it's a good idea and puts in his own small vial of poison into Joseph too, forcing Joseph to eventually fight them both.

* ''{{Hellsing}}'': Millenium actually implants one of these in all of their agents. Granted they don't actually explode, instead they are incinerated. It should be noted that all of the {{Mooks}} who are killed this way are vampires they are created artificially so they are vulnerable to this form of termination, while Alucard and Seras are not.

** Originally "The Stick", as it was affectionately known, was an explosive bracelet slapped to the wrist of each squad member. However, they eventually figured out ways to disable the bracelets so Waller switched to implanting microbombs in their skulls. Later animated adaptations and the [[Film/SuicideSquad2016 live action film]] use the latter.

* Skywatch puts one of these on [[spoiler:Shockwave]] to force him to clean up their mess in IDW's ''[[TransformersGeneration1 Maximum Dinobots]]'' miniseries. He does not sound particularly fazed by the threat of a 24-hour time limit before it will fry his CPU.

* ''Series/BlakesSeven''. In "Bounty", the crew of the Liberator are captured by SpacePirates who force them to wear explosive collars until they can be handed over to the Federation. [[MasterOfUnlocking Vila]] is able to remove Blake's, who used it moments later to blow up a guard. Then there's a MexicanStandoff between a character pointing a gun at the pirate leader, who's holding the activator to a leash warn by his own daughter. Fortunately Blake intervenes and the pirate tries to activate Blake's collar instead, only he's removed it.
