As a Cave Troll Ulik is well out of Punisher's ability to hurt, even with rocket launchers and anti-tank weapons. So Punisher fed him a "pineapple" sandwich. Unfortunately for Frank, ''it's still not enough to put him down''.

* Used twice in the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "The Doomsday Machine" by first flying a shuttle into the maw of the machine and detonating the engines, having only a small effect. Then flying the wreckage of a starship into the machine and detonating the impulse engines destroying the machine's insides but leaving the hull intact. A dubious-canon EU novel, ''Before Dishonor'', indicates that even the internal detonation didn't physically damage it. Rather, it had an organic "pilot" [[UnusualUserInterface psychically interfaced into its crystalline control system]], and the radiation from explosion killed that "pilot" rendering it inert. Inserting a new "pilot", 7 of 9, was all that was needed to reactivate it.
* Subverted in the last season of ''Series/StargateSG1'', when Teal'c tried to get rid of the Sangraal's guardian, a dragon, by throwing C-4 into its mouth. It doesn't do much more than give it a burpy tummy; the look on Teal'c's face is hilarious.

He shoved a CartoonBomb down Homestar's throat, and then punched him in the gut for good measure.

** The Dodongo in many games are giant dinosaurs who when fed Link's bombs will damage it or make it susceptible to attack from his sword. There's also the [[spoiler:[[AllJustADream imaginary]]]] relative called the Dodongo Snake in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening''. Oddly, in the original ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI'' game, it is more effective to let a bomb explode in ''front'' of the Dodongo (which is most effective if you place the bomb on the line between squares). This stuns it and lets you kill it in one shot (and one bomb), while it has to swallow two bombs to kill it the normal way. Additionally, stunning it will usually cause it to drop four bombs, while killing it normally will never drop bombs. The only downside is that stunning it may not work on the first attempt.
