When a character is facing an enemy with a large mouth and a penchant for [[SwallowedWhole eating said character]], and tries throwing a bomb into its mouth. The enemy eats it, you hear a "boom", and then see the enemy die [[note]]and if your rating allows it, [[LudicrousGibs turn into bloody kebab filling]][[/note]]. It [[TacticalSuicideBoss never occurs to them to just keep their mouth shut]] and tail sweep/eye beam/claw the character.

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', while it's far from the only way to kill them, throwing a bomb at a Deku Baba or Quadro Baba will cause them to instinctively grab it with their mouth, at which point all you have to do is sit back and wait for it to explode.

Scaldera must be defeated that way, since its attack pattern is basically the same as the aforementioned King Dodongo.



* The final boss of ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}}'' is a lot easier if you feed it bombs like this, though having a Pikmin manually toss a bomb into its open mouth stuns it longer then having a bomb-carrying Pikmin be eaten. The same boss in ''Pikmin 2'' has a similar weakness, but has to be lured into eating bombs already lying on the ground. The Sandbelching Meerslug in ''Pikmin 3'' can be harmed this way optionally.

''Hey! Pikmin'''s Fiery Blowhog must be through a bomb while he is sucking air to throw fireballs at Olimar, too.

[[spoiler: Later, Cole attempts to feed himself to the Alpha Skull Crawler while wearing a belt of explosives and holding up two grenades with pins pulled, but it tosses him away instead.]]

** The Diggernaut from ''VideoGame/MetroidSamusReturns'' will try to suck Samus up after one of its arms is fried; firing missiles into the vortex does nothing, but dropping bombs for it to inhale will damage and eventually daze it, allowing Samus to inflict further meaningful damage.

* In the Wii version of ''ABoyAndHisBlob'', the only way to kill the frog mooks is to turn Blob into a coconut and roll it near to them so they'll eat him... and then call him back so [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath he will burst out from inside of them]].
