Often a source of AmusingInjuries. Compare to the truly hideous example which lies in many RealTimeStrategy video games, known affectionately (or not-so-affectionately) as the SlapOnTheWristNuke.

* Applies to an extent in ''TabletopGames/{{BattleTech}}'', where most vehicle-scale weapons do significantly reduced damage to conventional infantry units and salvo-fired explosive ordnance such as missiles or autocannon shells is no exception. A standard class 20 autocannon, capable of shredding over a ton of 31st-century armor (or a light building) in one burst and potentially ripping limbs or heads off 'Mechs, will when used against common ground-pounders eliminate at most ''four'' troopers out of an infantry platoon of any size -- two if they have any sort of cover like "rough" terrain or woods. (Weapons with an explicit area effect ''on'' the vehicular scale are highly lethal to the same units if they're caught in said area, however.)

* One of the several AmusingInjuries that happen to [[KeroroGunso Keroro]] and his platoon is explosions. Apparently, jamming a live grenade into Keroro's mouth will only make him faint. And grow a [[FunnyAfro large afro.]]

* Played infamously in ''OnePiece'', where [[spoiler: A bomb with a 5-kilometer blast radius is carried into the sky by Pell in an apparent heroic sacrifice, [[DisneyDeath but he managed to survive.]]]]

** One Piece is in general an offender. Explosions are rarely played for fun, and characters will usually be injured (sometimes seriously) and often taken out of the battle if they are hit by one at point-blank range, but they will not suffer any of the physically realistic effects. Instead, they will just be covered by dirt, bruises and wounds as if they had been beated up by a human's fists and thrown around in the soil.

* Cars, trucks, tanks, jerrycans and helium jars in ''VideoGame/GoatSimulator'' are all pretty much Main/MadeOfExplodium and detonate by a simple headbutt. The worst they do is set your goat on fire. Kind of justified since the goat you play is pretty much immortal.

A supertrope of AshFace, where an explosion leaves a character with nothing worse than a blackened face, and ExplosionPropulsion, where they're harmlessly BlownAcrossTheRoom.

* In ''RanmaOneHalf'', Happosai regularly throws around homemade gunpowder hand grenades. It's usually [[ButtMonkey Ranma]] himself that gets left charred, smoking and pissed off, but otherwise unharmed.
