* In the Flash animation "[[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/135265 Kerri's Big Invention]]" by LegendaryFrog, several of her inventions spontaneously burst into flame for no good reason, including (most ludicrously) a drinking bird.

*** Somewhat averted in the OVA Endless Waltz when the Serpents don't explode, mainly because the main characters deemed this battle a "bloodless war".



* In ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' a thrown forklift in a factory explodes quite spectacularly when it hits the... bottled soft drinks?[[note]]A lot of forklifts run off of propane or similar flammable gasses. However, it still produce too big of a fireball.[[/note]] Later on, two cars are seen at the end of an alley way lightly crashing into each other (a crash that would barely cause a fender bender in real life) and a large flame erupts ''between'' them almost instantly. Bizarrely averted however when the Hulk [[CarFu rips a police car in half and uses each half as a boxing glove]]

* Averted with the ''Malevolence'' in ''WesternAnimationStarWarsTheCloneWars'', which is crippled by having its ion cannon destroyed, but not only does this ''not'' set off a chain reaction and destroy the ship, but Star Destroyers chase it for a good long while blasting the heck out of it and it barely even slows down despite being heavily crippled.

** 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 supernova. In that case ''the entire star goes boom''.

However, like in the helium flash, the weight of the star's outer layers absorb the explosion and all energy goes to re-expand the stellar core[[/note]].

* During a chase scene in ''WesternAnimation/{{Rango}}'', bats are seen to explode on crashing. Yes, ''bats''.

* ''VideoGame/ShawsNightmare'' has a weapon where you launch hen grenades that explode upon impact. Also the Flying Baby and Plopper in the second game when they die.

** This was why during TheGulfWar, one of the more iconic images of the destroyed Iraqi Army's Russian-made tanks (and Chinese-made versions of Russian tanks) was the burnt shell of a tank with the turret either several feet away or upside down on top of the tank. An explosive of some sort (a rocket, missile or armor-piercing anti-tank round) would penetrate the hull, causing a massive build-up of heat and pressure, or simply leave the tank burning. The heat, pressure or fire would then spread to the exposed ammunition, causing an ammunition cook-off massive enough to hurl the turret up to forty to sixty feet in the air, which typically weigh some several tons.

* In ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'', The Cheat's head is made of Explodium. It frequently blows up, in response to just about anything -- including Strong Mad standing near him and eating rocks. In one cartoon, they even use The Cheat in place of Fourth of July fireworks!

** In the WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail "4 branches", Homestar starts a campfire in [[GoofySuit his "Jolly Dumple" costume]] after locking himself out of his house, and ignores Coach Z's warnings that the suit is made of "flame pro-tardant polymascotfoamalate". The suit quickly goes up like a powder keg, and while Homestar is apparently unharmed Coach Z is sent flying by the explosion.

* Lampshaded and subverted (at the same time no less!) by {{Mike J}} of Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses in his ''Speed 2'' review: "I hope if I throw this ball against that wall nothing [[BuffySpeak explody]] will happen." *throws ball against the wall and nothing happens* "Oh."

* Robots in '' Webcomic/Homestuck '' tend to blow up a LOT. Especially if Aradia's haunting them.
