* 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.]]



* [[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.

* In one of the AbleTeam books, a raid on an outlaw biker gang goes wrong when the bikers turn out to have MoreDakka. The last thing Carl Lyons sees before an explosion is a police colleague hugging a grenade to his chest so the blast will be absorbed by his ribcage rather than the soft flesh of the abdomen.

* In an episode of ''{{Baywatch}}'', after annoying everyone with his safety precautions due to an impending visit from the President, a Secret Service agent throws himself on top of what he thinks is a bomb. Unfortunately, it turns out to be a kid's toy. The agent is humiliated by his mistake and apparent incompetence until Mitch truthfully points out that he didn't ''know'' that it was merely a toy and his obvious willingness to sacrifice himself to ensure the President's safety proves how good an agent he really is.

* In ''Fanfic/MassEffectEndOfDays'', an AI piloted robot does that during a slave rescue operation. The AI managed to upload into another body... something the quarian slaves present aren't too happy to hear.

Compare TakingTheBullet, TuckAndCover

Related to [[RocketJump Rocket jumping]] or variations of it, but the desired effects are completely different. Contrast ExplosiveStupidity, where the subject unintentionally blows themselves up. Compare PineappleSurprise for when the target is blown up by their own grenade.

* Inverted and then defied in [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/109581/1/i-did-not-want-to-die/i-did-not-want-to-die I Did Not Want To Die.]] The protagonist deliberately pulls the pin on his last grenade, and instead of jumping on it, the enemy soldiers have an OhCrap moment right before they are all blown up.

** Ogryn (Ogre IN SPACE) Nork Dedog 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.
