Added DiffLines:

** Even worse in Film/TheRock where a San-Francisco Cable car... a vehicle that has no engine and no electronics (it's propelled by grabbing onto a cable that runs the length of the route and is pulled by a massive stationary motor), explodes at the end of a car chase. Considering the scene in question is often considered the MagnumOpus of car chase scenes, it's not questioned.

Added DiffLines:

** So large in fact, that the US was able to determine that it was a moon rocket based on spy satellite pictures alone because the surrounding destruction was much to great for a LEO vehicle. NASA had a three mile exclusion zone around Apollo launch complexes because of such destructive capability.

One of them, which isn't named, is explosive enough to go off when trying to get an infrared spectrum of it. In layman's terms, an ''infrared light'' shining on it sets it off. [[https://youtu.be/ckSoDW2-wrc?t=288 One YouTube video]] even cheerfully says that azidoazide azide (C2N'''14''') can explode ''by itself''. To put it in perspective, most things mentioned in this part of the page have been made in large amounts and even have some use. These compounds don't even have that luxury.

* Pure elemental fluorine is among the most reactive (unstable) substance known to man. Its entry in the lab safety section of the CRC Handbook of Physics and Chemistry, [[note]]the annually updated BigBookOfEverything covering as much of humanity's knowledge of chemical and physical data as possible (doubles as a {{doorstop|per}} and [[ThrowTheBookAtThem blunt weapon]])[[/note]] simply reads as follows:

Cesium is especially dangerous, as it will explode immediately upon contact with water with enough force to ''[[https://youtu.be/uixxJtJPVXk?t=2m11s shatter a glass vessel]]'', and will spontaneously ignite in air. Francium has a half-life of 22 minutes, meaning that if a significant mass of it existed, it would vaporize itself from the sheer amount of radiation and will probably continue doing so even after decaying into something else [[note]]astatine, radium or radon, which are still extremely dangerous[[/note]]. Fortunately, it's extremely rare, with only a few million isolated atoms on Earth.

** Another ammonium nitrate plant: [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AZF AZF]]. Then taken UpToEleven in Korea, with a train full of the same fertilizer colliding with a train full of fuel, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ANFO essentially synthesising an explosive by accident.]]

*** This was Lampshaded in SD Gundam Force when they enter Lacroa (an knight gundam themed world using Gundam Wing mecha) the Pawn Leos explode and revert back to an card form when damaged the rest of the group is confused while zero bring up that they always do this

* Also Subverted in Terminator Salvation when they ram a fuel tanker into the Harvester. Kyle Reese shoots it a few times, but it doesn't explode. (In say, a Michael Bay film, you'd have expected a slingshot to make it blow up like a nuke.) It finally goes up in a giant fireball when the fuel leaking from the shotgun holes is ignited with a flare. (This is actually probably one of the most realistic examples of the way things explode in real life. Nothing was going to happen until the escaping fumes hit the right fuel-air ratio for combustion.)

* The ENTIRE mansion in "X-Men Apocalypse". There is just no conceivable way that a jet engine exploding could completely obliterate a building that size. On the flip side, it allows Quicksilver to become an avatar for the Rule of Cool in what is undeniably the most awesome scene in the whole movie, and the entire movie franchise to date.
