* 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.]]

** The Soldier claims he jumped on no less than 1,455 live grenades during his service in UsefulNotes/WorldWar2. Since he was barred from actually serving in the military (he bought his own plane ticket to Europe), it's unlikely that these were {{Heroic Sacrifice}}s. Or that it happened at all, for that matter.

* At the end of the novel ''Supreme Commander'' by Nikolai Gudanets (inspired by ''{{X-COM}}''), the task force has discovered the location of the alien base on Earth. An abandoned submarine pen in the Arctic, built by the Nazis. They are warned that some aliens are capable of mind-controlling humans, and their armor includes an additional indicator on the HUD, showing a mind control in progress nearby. A squad of four enters a pool area, where the [[BigBad main antagonist]] is swimming. He mind-controls one of the soldiers and has him throw a grenade in-between his squad. Realizing this, one of the squad members (and a secondary character and possible LoveInterest of the protagonist) falls on the grenade. Her own armor protects the squad from damage, but she dies instantly. The alien manages to escape by swimming through an underwater tunnel into the ocean, where he's promptly eaten by a shark.

* [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Abe Simpson]] once saved the life of Mr. Burns during World War II by clamping his helmet over an artillery shell that had landed in their foxhole and not yet exploded. Since it's one of Grandpa's stories it's best to take it with a grain of salt.
