** In the episode where the family became farmers, Homer iradiates the crops with plutonium borrowed from the nuclear plant in the hope that they grow bigger, like in the movies. Instead, he ends up with normal-sized tomatoes, only they have combined with tobacco to form "tomacco".

** In ''VideoGame/Fallout4'' the player can choose a dialogue option joking that they'll run through a heavily irradiated area in their underwear in the hopes of gaining superpowers. Doctor Amari feels the need to remind the [[PlayerCharacter Sole Survivor]] that this would only kill them, though there may be a few players out there that did so anyway.

* And industry wasn't far behind either. There were plans for a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear-powered_aircraft nuclear powered bomber]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NS_Savannah cruise ships]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_marine_propulsion#Merchant_ships merchant vessels]] and the nuclear powered car mentioned below. [[ScienceMarchesOn We learned more about radiation]] and most never left the planning or prototype stages.

* [[GaiasVengeance Gaia]] loves to subvert that trope: {{UsefulNotes/Chernobyl}} has become [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4923342.stm a wildlife haven]]. On the other hand, the (perception of the) level of radiation released in the mind of the public is very different than the reality and the animals aren't necessarily going to worry about the level of radiation anyway. It was only after the first few weeks after the disaster that wildlife began to thrive in Chernobyl, after the radiation levels dropped. After that, the radiation was still dangerous for humans, but not for animals- most animals have much shorter lifespans (about ten years or so), and thus do not have enough time for the radiation they've absorbed to turn into cancer. That's not to say that there ''weren't'' mutations in the animals (see ThatOtherWiki's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chernobyl_disaster article]] for an example image; beware of BodyHorror), it just simply was not as widespread as fiction or popular perception would have us believe. You still can't eat any animals there.

* The {{Roguelike}}, {{Elona}} has Etherwind, which starts blowing every 3 months, and unless you find shelter, induces [[BodyHorror horrible mutations]]. As opposed to normal mutations, which can be good or bad.
