* [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in TerryGoodkind's ''SwordOfTruth'' series: in one scene, a character blows up ''trees'' to kill portions of an enemy army. Granted, it's explained that it's really just superheating the sap, but still...

* UsefulNotes/TheHindenburg famously exploded due to using Hydrogen for lift. It had been designed for inert Helium, but the United States refused to sell it to the [[ThoseWackyNazis German government owned]] airship out of fear of a repeat of early [[WorldWarOne WW1]], when [[UsefulNotes/{{Airships}} Zeppelins rained destruction on cities]], not one being shot down for the first few years until the invention of the incendiary bullet. The Germans basically shrugged and filled it with Hydrogen instead; they had a perfect safety record for four decades (since the aircraft was ''invented'') using Hydrogen, which they viewed as being similar to how we see gasoline in automobiles: potentially dangerous, but with careful control, harmless. In 1937 they were proven wrong. Amazingly, 2/3 of the people on board survived the massive explosion.

* Some Japanese aircraft during WorldWarII, particularly the [=A6M=] Zero, [=G4M=] "Betty" and Ki-43 "Oscar", were very lightly armored, lacked self-sealing fuel tanks, and had ineffective (or non-existent) fire-suppression systems. As a result they had a tendency to catch on fire and explode even from relatively light hits. It certainly didn't help that some Japanese aircraft often had higher than normal magnesium content in their structural framework and skins...

* In ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'', this is what the Stand [[ThemeNaming Killer Queen]] ''does'' -- its power turns objects and even people into explosives.

* [[RuleOfFunny For some strange reason]], Negi's [[MesACrowd duplicates]] in ''MahouSenseiNegima'''s Kyoto Arc don't just poof back to paper like normal when you kiss them. Instead, they explode.

Added DiffLines:

* The Soviet and Chinese tanks in ''VideoGame/WorldOfTanks'' have poorly-protected ammo racks spread throughout the tank, making it easier to be [[OneHitKill one-shotted]] by a well-placed round, especially if the penetrating round is a high explosive shot.

** The regiment in ''Discworld/MonstrousRegiment'' manage to MacGyver some explosives when they're held prisoner in a kitchen that has flour and some matches in it. (Justified. Flour can and will explode violently if dispersed into the air and then ignited.)

** In [[VideoGame/DeusExInvisibleWar the sequel]], only KnightsTemplar powered armor suits explode, along with mechs if shot and destroyed (disabling them with EMP will avert that though). This can add some FakeDifficulty in some areas with cameras: gunfire won't set off the alarm, however, shooting the camera until it explodes with the force of a grenade will.
