* 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.
