** There also exist versions to be put on the person's hands; this isn't necessarily lethal either, but it is enough to blow up the offender's hands to kingdom come. [[spoiler:Vinsmoke Judge had some put around his son Sanji's hands to force him into going through his ArrangedMarriage to one of Big Mom's daughters, since Sanji treasures his hands as being his tools for cooking. Worse, only Big Mom has the keys.]]

* The ''modus operandi'' of the "Task Force X," a.k.a. the ''SuicideSquad'', in TheDCU and TheDCAU, starting with ''[[ComicBook/LegendsDC Legends]]''. In one issue, Captain Boomerang convinces Slipknot that they aren't real bombs, and encourages him to make a run for it... because he wanted to see for himself whether or not they were real. Seeing Slipknot's arm get blown off confirmed that they were.

* In the ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' RPG ''DarkHeresy'' any character can be outfitted with an explosive collar, and Guardsmen can take one as part of their starting equipment to imply ex-membership in a Penal Legion.
* Common in both ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' and ''[[{{Deadlands}} Deadlands: Hell on Earth]]''. In the latter the majority of Combine troops are fitted with explosive implants.

* Pictured above: In ''OnePiece'', the slave traders of Sabaody Archipelago keep their stock in collars that explode if anyone tries to remove them without the proper key. Unless, of course, you're like [[BadassGrandpa Silvers Rayleigh]] and [[CrazyAwesome can pull it off quick enough.]] Although, amazingly, the character pictured ''[[NonFatalExplosion was not killed]]'' by the explosion (or being shot afterward), though he was immediately taken back into custody.

* Used during an episode of ''[[OneThousandWaysToDie 1000 Ways To Die]]''. The twist being the "victim", a bank robber, put in on himself and then lied to the people in the bank he's robbing, saying that he was forced into it and the leash will be detonated if he doesn't get the money. All goes well, until a cashier escapes and tries to open her car using a distance key that that works on a certain frequency. [[YourHeadAsplode Cue the kaboom.]]

** 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/SuicideSquad live action film]] use the latter.

* Exploding collars are used twice in the ''GunsmithCats'' manga, by two unrelated villains.

* ''{{Cyborg 009}}'' uses this with a spin. [[spoiler: Shinichi Ibaraki, Mary Onodera and Masaru Oyamada]] were not only forcibly turned into Cyborgs, but they got bombs implanted ''within their bodies'' as a way to keep them under control in their mission. [[spoiler: Said mission was to kill their former [[TrueCompanions True Companion]] Joe Shimamura aka 009; when they cannot bring themselves to do it, the bombs are activated, and the three kids die.]]
* A (comparatively) light version appears in ''DeadmanWonderland'', where all the prisoners are fitted with ''poisonous'' collars. The poison takes three days to kill the prisoners, in which time they have to be able to purchase the antidote [[ItMakesSenseInContext candies]]. So, if they don't get the candies, they die. If they ''escape'', they will have no way to get the candies, and die.

* An unusual self-inflicted example appears in the ''{{Sten}}'' series. Long ago, the Eternal Emperor implanted himself with a Judgement Device that would constantly monitor his thoughts and explode if he was ever brainwashed or went insane. Of course, being [[{{Immortality}} Immortal]], he did so with the expectation that he'd get better afterwards.
