* Taken to absurd lengths with the caecilians in [[Webcomic/{{Megamanspritecomic}} Megaman Sprite Game]]. They have a tendency to explode during battle and die. It isn't even a DefeatEqualsExplosion or a TakingYouWithMe example. They just ''kill themselves''!

** In "Something Smells" when [=SpongeBob=] jumps on a guy's windshield asking him if he's ugly his rancid breath blinds him, after which he puts the boat to a complete stop and it explodes for no particular reason, leaving behind only the frame. [[PoliceAreUseless A police officer then]] [[RuleOfFunny puts a ticket on the charred frame]].
** In "Band Geeks" Squidward is leading his band through downtown and orders the flag twirlers to spin faster. They spin so hard that their flags carry them into the air, and they crash into a blimp which explodes.
** In "My Pretty Seahorse" a background character mistakes Mystery for a kiddie ride and attempts to insert a coin into her. After he [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar finds somewhere to put it]] she kicks him over the horizon and he explodes.
** In "That Sinking Feeling" when [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick's lawns are separated because of Squidward drawing a border around his Patrick attempts to mail himself to [=SpongeBob=]. He squeezes himself into the mailbox, then it tips over and explodes.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', chocolate milk makes a fairly impressive explosion. Justified in that the chocolate milk belonged to a RealityWarper who's known for doing chaotic things for the lulz, who, before throwing the chocolate milk away, filled a glass from top to bottom with it and then drank the glass.

** Early editions had rules for mixing potions, either externally or drinking one while another one with a duration was still in effect. A very bad roll could result in an external (bad) or internal (very bad) explosion.

* A TearJerker example: On January 27, 1967, during a ground test inside their Command Module spacecraft, atop an unfueled rocket, the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apollo_1 Apollo 1]] crew of first American spacewalker Ed White, second American in space Gus Grissom and rookie Roger Chaffee were asphyxiated in 15 seconds when the interior of their spacecraft burst into flame. Internal electrical flaws caused a spark. Worst of all, the spacecraft was pressurized at 15 psi with a pure-oxygen atmosphere, soaking even flame-resistant materials to the point that they would burn. The spacecraft burst as the internal pressure reached over 29 psi during the fire. The redesigned Command Module not only proved fireproof as the moon missions began, but ''waterproof''. When the Apollo 13 command module lost all long-term power and had to be shutdown for an emergency flight home in April, 1970, significant water condensation built up inside the spacecraft. Thankfully, there were no electrical shorts when the command module was restarted from battery power as the crew prepped the spacecraft for its reentry and splashdown.

** Let's not forget about anything involving [[Characters/Borderlands2DLCCharacters Torgue]].
*** To clarify: All Torgue guns fire miniaturized rockets and deal only explosive damage. Any manufacturer that produces assault rifles can also produce weapons using the Torgue assault rifle barrel, which overrides most of the distinctive features of that manufacturer and simply causes them to fire even ''more'' explosives such as grenades or spiral rockets. Torgue explosions are contagious.

** The Hindenburg deflagration (no part of it exploded) was caused by static discharge igniting the doping (paint) on its outer skin. At least one NASA scientist claimed that the vast majority of the hydrogen contained in its gas bags simply escaped into the upper atmosphere without burning, and claimed the main blame lay with the doping, which contained significant amounts of aluminum powder and iron oxide, which can, in the correct proportions, form [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermite thermite]]. Tests by the Series/MythBusters indicated that it was actually a combination of these two theories: The doping was responsible for the brightness of the flames (and, contrary to a major argument put forth by detractors of the incendiary paint theory, actually did cause some minor thermite reactions), while hydrogen was the main cause of the speed and severity of the burn. So, really, it was ''doubly'' Made of Explodium (well, Made of Incendium, but you get the idea).

** Under ''very'' specific conditions, however, nuclear fusion is explosive. Consider a Sun-like star, that has exhausted its central hydrogen and contains an inert core composed of helium. This core compresses and gets hotter until helium fusion starts. However, since the core is so dense it cannot expand to counter the excess energy produced by helium burning[[note]]Normally, a stellar core would expand if energy production increases[[/note]], a runaway fusion called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helium_flash Helium flash]], ''that during the few seconds it lasts produces so much energy as an entire galaxy'', ensues, ending when the core re-expands, cools down, and fuses helium stably[[note]]However, since the energy produced in the flash is entirely used to expand the core, its effects are not visible in the outside. Also, massive stars do not experiment it as helium burning begins before their cores become so dense[[/note]]. A similar process, the so-called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_detonation carbon detonation]] as [[CaptainObvious it involves carbon instead of helium]], occurs in a type of supernovae. In that case ''the entire star goes boom''.

* Acetone diperoxide (and the closely related triperoxide thereof), also known as "Satan's Mother", is a staple of back-alley chemists and would-be terrorists worldwide for being easy to synthesize. It is notable in that it is the only remotely practical high explosive that does not contain nitrogen in any way, shape or form (and thus is undetectable for sniffer dogs and bomb detectors which are attuned to the smell of nitrogen compounds). It is also notable for being extremely touchy, especially when made by a typical back alley chemist from impure ingredients.

* Noble Gas compounds tend to be ... touchy. The fluorides and oxides are an uneasy partnership of either Fluorine or Oxygen (both of which love stealing electrons) and an element that does not like sharing electrons. Eventually, the Noble Gas will get its electrons back while the Fluorine and Oxygen atoms go off to fluorinate or oxidize something else.
