* ''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.

* ''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!
