* Variation in the ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' special, "[[TreasureHuntEpisode Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure]]". Jack, Alfie, Oliver the Excavator, and Marion do this with a box of dynamite lit by sparks from bad coal Ryan took from an old hopper. Thankfully, nobody gets hurt.

* In WW2, German soldiers forced to retreat from their positions learnt to leave boxes of primed hand grenades behind. Russian soldiers were unable to resist the temptation to throw them at the retreating Germans. Unfortunately for them the grenades were primed with such short fuses that they'd blow up in the Russians' faces. A later refinement involved the knowledge that Red Army Intelligence understood the colour-coding on German grenade fuses: blue meant a ten second delay, red seven seconds, yellow five, et c. Grenades would be left behind in evacuated positions with boxes of standard colour--coded fuses. Only whatever the colour on the fuse, when reassembled they would ''still'' explode in the user's hand.

* In ''TheAvengers2012'', a group of alien Chitauri soldiers during the invasion of Manhattan have cornered a large number of civilians in a bank. From the second floor, one of them prepares to throw a powerful energy grenade below to kill dozens of people. They get interrupted by Captain America, however, who knocks the grenade out of the Chitauri's hand and starts brawling with them. As the counter on the bomb audibly winds down, one of the Chitauri frantically picks up the grenade and starts turning around to throw it at Cap - who jumps into the air and holds his shield between them. The Chitauri tries to throw the bomb after him - as much to hurt Cap as to just get the grenade away from himself - but he can't even manage to get it out of his hand before it blows up, enveloping the entire second floor of the bank in the explosion and blasting Cap out a window and onto a car below.
