* [[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin]] (Tim Drake) saves Officer Harper from an explosion and the two of them just manage to avoid the ensuing fireball as he swings away. In a more realistic take than normal Tim still ends up burned on the back of his head and neck and it is very much not a [[NonFatalExplosions Non Fatal Explosion]] as two kids Tim didn't realize were in a car right next to the bomb were killed.

* A photograph exists of a pyroclastic cloud tumbling down Mount Unzen in Japan. On the road in front of the cloud is a fire engine, in front of THAT is a single man running for his life. You can see [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cvjwt9nnwXY the video here]]. The pyroclastic cloud never actually reaches the place where the man was. However, it unfortunately kills a group of people who film volcanoes who were in the valley itself where the cloud was being channelled down. If it had reached the place where that man was, he probably wouldn't be alive today.

* In the second part of ''[[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1532382/ Hooked]]''. The main hero jumps of the boat a moment before the bomb explodes, however it turns out that the perfect timing wasn't his -it was's the bomb's one. Or rather the bad guys' who were secretly watching him and detonated the bomb at the precise moment, so that he'd believe in his miraculous save and went on with his part of their BatmanGambit.

The badass often showcases just how cool he is by always [[UnflinchingWalk calmly walking away]] from the building or car, and perhaps casually putting on his CoolShades or lighting up a cigarette just as the explosion goes off. Badass characters don't have to run unless it's ''darned'' important. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sqz5dbs5zmo Cool guys don't look at explosions]].

* ''Manga/MiraiNikki'': Yuno, during the second episode; she's being held indoors (where there are several motion-detonated bombs set up), while Yukiteru is outside, about to be killed by [[spoiler:Minene/Ninth]]. Naturally, [[{{Yandere}} Yuno being Yuno]], she sprints down the corridor despite the bombs (and innocents killed as a result), resulting in this.
