** 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.

* ''AbleTeam''. When Carl Lyons is captured by the Unomundo organization he pretends to do a FaceHeelTurn, planning to escape when he has a suitable opportunity. Later when sneaking around their headquarters he breaks into a room which has X-Rays taken of his neck, showing an implant the size of a AAA battery, in the same position as a surgical scar which Carl assumed was a result of his injuries when captured. There are also a series of photographs of a South American peasant with a similar scar, [[TestedOnHumans before and after his neck is blown open]]. Later when the rest of Able Team arrive to rescue Carl, they have to cut out the device with a shard of mirror glass (in case the bomb is magnetically triggered).

* In ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'', [[RobotGirl Cameron]] wires ''herself'' with one of these because [[ICannotSelfTerminate she cannot self-terminate]] and she's afraid she'll go on a homicidal rampage again in the future, and gives the detonator to John Connor.

** In the third season, after the discovery that Hive can brainwash Inhumans, Coulson needs Lincoln's help to [[spoiler:rescue Daisy from said brainwashing]], but Lincoln is an Inhuman himself. Coulson equips Lincoln with a nanothermite vest that can be detonated if he gets taken, and gives the remote the May. Both Lincoln and May chew him out for this, especially since he's willing to risk a lot more to get their target back alive. Coulson eventually agrees that he's gone too far, and grounds Lincoln entirely rather than forcing him to wear the vest.

* 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]].

* ''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.
