** Ogryn (Ogre IN SPACE) Nork Deddogg saved his commander in this fashion, by jumping on a live grenade (and the enemy grenadier holding it) before it went off. His bulk completely contained the explosion, and being MadeOfIron he only gave passing curiosity to his wound(indeed, Deddogg is one of the few characters in the game to manage to die of ''old age''.).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/HoratioHornblower'' novel ''Hornblower and the Hotspur'' has a variant when the ship is fired on by land-based howitzers. The shells detonate when their fuses burn down, similar to grenades. It strikes aloft and lands on the deck near Hornblower, and he instinctively jumps to extinguish the fuse only to realize with dismay that everyone is looking at him in awe. Despite his refusal to report the incident in terms beyond "a five-inch shell which fortunately failed to explode," word gets out anyway. And in the earlier-written book ''Commodore'', Hornblower and one of his junior officers discuss the proper length for fuses to prevent brave enemy soldiers from extinguishing them.

* The Punk Hazard arc in ''Manga/OnePiece'' has a variation, in that itdoesn't feature an actual grenade. [[spoiler:In order to prevent the other giant children from eating more of the drugged candy that [[MadScientist Caesar Clown]] has been feeding them, Mocha swallows the entire batch she was carrying at once; to Chopper's horror, as it is a very dangerous drug. This brings her to the brink of death, but snaps the other kids back to their senses, but fortunately, Chopper was able to stabilize her condition and save her.]]
