** The Japanese standard became a simultaneous attack by ten men, most of whom would be killed in the attempt. The standard response was for tanks with [[MoreDakka coaxially-mounted machine guns]] to [[CombatPragmatist turn their turrets on each other]].[[note]]this is actually a valid conbat tactic known as "back scratching." While some sensitive equipment such as periscopes and sighting devices may be damaged by the gunfire, it is better than the alternative, namely having two or three grenades dropped into your hatch.[[/note]] It was used by British Centurion tanks being 'hugged' by Chinese soldiers with similarly non-existent ranged anti-tank weaponry during the Korean War, and occasionally in Vietnam (though the Vietcong usually did not resort to such desperate measures against US or Australian tanks).

* In ''ComicBook/NthManTheUltimateNinja'', John Doe manages to InsertGrenadeHere by throwing a grenade down the gunbarrel of a tank that is about to shoot him, timing it exactly to match the tank's gunner opening the breach. He manages this feat by a combination of good hearing, good timing, and channeling his memories of zen concentration from playing baseball with his adopted father.

* Happens all the time in the WW2 SvenHassel and Leo Kessler books, as the German protagonists seldom have a panzerfaust or anti-tank gun when they need one. There are frequent references to tying bundles of hand grenades together for this purpose.

* ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOpsTwo'' has Alex Mason climb aboard a Soviet tank, engage in a brief fistfight with the commander of the attack, and throw a [[UpToEleven mortar]] [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill round]] into the tank. Boom.

** Occurs earlier while the tank is refueling, and works considerably better.
*** That was more a case of [[SomebodySetUpUsTheBomb setting them up the bomb]].
* In ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'', the Airborne soldiers trying to hold a bridge don't have much in the way of anti-tank weapons, but are faced with an armored convoy. To fight them, they come up with a StickyBomb: pitch-covered socks filled with explosives, designed to be slung onto tank treads from close range to disable them and block the road. Suffice to say, the results of the sticky bombs are... mixed. (This was TruthInTelevision, including the fairly "mixed" results.)

** Thermite Grenades are designed for this. Not actually used in combat, they allow for combat engineers to disable allied equipment they have to abandon, or to permanently disable enemy equipmentn. One of these stuck in an engine block can melt it almost completely.
