* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAssaultOnArkham'', members of the ComicBook/SuicideSquad have explosive implants put in their heads to keep them from rebelling. Amanda Waller dares them to call her bluff; [=KGBeast=] tries and, [[YourHeadAsplode well...]] In fact, the Squad is sent into Arkham to get their hands on ComicBook/TheRiddler, who knows how to fry said chips, which is why Waller wants him dead. Riddler offers to rescue them from Waller if they'll spare his life; [[spoiler:Waller catches on partway through and trips the bombs; King Shark dies because his tough skin kept him from receiving the full electric shock required to short out the chip. Black Spider is unaffected despite the fact that he hadn't undergone the procedure yet; that tips the villains off to the fact that he's actually [[IdentityImpersonator Batman, having stolen Spider's costume]]. Spider (in Batman's costume) blows up in front of a stunned Joker.]]

* In ''Manga/{{Arachnid}}'', users of the [[RazorFloss Kumoito]] weapon like Kumo and Alice are able to attach strings to a person's neck without being noticed. This allows them to listen to what the person is doing if they're in a certain range and [[NeckSnap crush their neck]] if the need comes.

This is a common means of ensuring that people do things they normally would not do because of common sense. While there are occasions where [[WhyAmITicking the bomb is physically implanted]], it is usually in the form of a SlaveCollar locked around the person's neck. The collar can have a detonator operated by the mission controller. It can be on a [[TimeBomb timer]] giving the operator a strict time limit within which to accomplish the mission. Or it can be triggered by proximity to a detonating device placed to prevent their escape.

* In the ''Starchild Trilogy'' by Creator/FrederikPohl and Creator/JackWilliamson, political dissidents are fitted with explosive collars with undefined timers that need to be periodically "wound up" by the guard's key to renew the timer. Within the series, legend has it that the only way around the tamper mechanism is to detach the head, remove the collar, and sew the head back on.

* ''FriendshipIsWitchcraft'' has an odd use in "Cherry Bomb". Whiplash attaches a bomb to Applejack to keep her from running away or trying to get help. But it turns out the bomb was just placed in AJ's saddlebag, and no explanation is given for why AJ treats it like a leash she can't remove herself. It wouldn't be the first time she acts TooDumbToLive in that particular episode.
