* ''Film/HomeAlone''. In the second movie, Kevin lights Harry's head on fire, Harry puts it out in the toilet, not knowing it is filled with kerosene, and blows the entire first floor up. Luckily, Harry only has second-degree burns on his scalp (as well as soot on his face and teeth and a damaged hat) to worry about.

* Should a bomb hit a Zoog or a regular Iggle in ''VideoGame/IgglePop'', it will merely be blown away skywards. Averted with the player character who loses a life if he gets hit.

* Sufficiently small explosives in general can be survivable. Soldiers have been known to survive thrown grenades exploding in what should have been the lethal radius. Grenade launchers and mortars have also been known to potentially allow survivors.
* Explosions have many properties and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Explosive_material sources]]. They are [[TheOtherWiki defined]] as "a rapid increase in volume and release of energy in an extreme manner". Depending on the speed of the shockwave, something can qualify as an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deflagration explosion]] yet remain within the body's [[MadeOfIron/RealLife surprisingly-high tolerance to impact]]; the problem being that many of those are accompanied by heat and shrapnel. Someone may very well survive the actual explosion of a gas tank -- provided none of the tank's pieces hit something vital -- but it is likely that the fire that follows will cause [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burn far more damage]]. Thankfully still survivable with any luck.

* Particularly {{egregious}} in ''{{Pokemon}}'', in which it is ''the {{mons}} themselves'' that explode. Somehow, Trainers never have to pick up scattered bits of Electrode or Geodude afterwards, although they do faint.

* Invoked in the final episode of ''Anime/ExcelSaga'' when Excel and Hyatt are looking for a way to return to their own bodies. They meet {{Nabeshin}} and ask for his help, he replies that in anime you can solve everything with explosions. He then holds up a lit dynamite stick, there is a large explosion, and everything is fine thereafter.
