* ''ReturnToCastleWolfenstein: Enemy Territory'' has landmines hiss when you step on them, and detonate if you step off. An engineer can disarm them, or if they're spotted by covert ops, can be detonated by explosives.

* ''StarCraft'' - the Terran Vulture hovercycles can lay down Spider Mines. These not only give a loud "click" of a warning, they actively chase down their targets.

* ''CarWars'' featured these in two main flavors, normal and 'Spear 1000', which primarily shot up rather than spread out. Both were primarily meant to take down the titular cars and similar; walking through a mine counter was perfectly safe. Splatbooks of course offered antipersonnel mines, as well as the minesweeper mentioned above that can get mounted on a convenient tank.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' had Claymore mines, special mines using fiber optic technology that would render itself invisible. They would explode if the player stepped into its field of "vision." Claymores can show up on the radar as yellow dots and cones if the player as a mine detector, but using a thermal visor would let you physically see the mines. Crawling over a Claymore would let you pick it up and add it to your inventory. Of course, they can be shot out as well.

* The unimpressive early Vietnam war flick ''Film/TheBoysOfCompanyC'' features a single fine sequence when a soldier on night patrol steps on a mine in a rice paddy. He then cuts through his boot sole and ties it tightly to the detonator (apparently this was SOP), and then skedaddles, to see the mine go off just after he reaches his own lines.

* ''Series/TheFlash'' TV show used a similar device. A criminal had set up a pressure-sensitive plate as a trap; when Lt. Garfield stepped on it, a tape recording informed him he'd activated a bomb which would blow up in 60 seconds or when he stepped off, whichever came first. The Flash arrived just in time to take Garfield's place, then escape at super-speed once he was clear of the building.

* The ''Franchise/BioShock'' series has Proximity Mines that can be launched from the GrenadeLauncher, with obvious pulsing red lights, and which also explode on contact like normal grenades, as well as [[StickyBomb sticking onto walls]].

* ''ComicStrip/FunkyWinkerbean'':
** Wally deals with the issue of a landmine while in Afghanistan, and later appears to deal with it again in Iraq until it is revealed to [[AllJustADream actually be a videogame]]. The videogame incident generated some [[http://dailycartoonist.com/index.php/2007/02/26/funky-winkerbean-depiction-of-ied-blowing-up-american-soldier-generates-angry-response/ controversy]] that later warranted an apology from the creator.
** A second example in the comic has Wally step on a Bouncing Betty while trying to take a picture. While he initially yells at Khan to leave without him, Khan stays behind to try to disable the bomb, but finds he can't because the fuse is on the bottom. He then tries another method, [[spoiler:using a plank as a baseball bat to WHACK AWAY THE BOMB.]] It's a significant event for the two considering their original meeting years prior had Khan trying to kill Wally.
