** While Chopper's Rumble Balls allow him to access his four special forms (in addition to the "regular" three) for 3 minutes, they have a limit of one Ball per six hours. A second Ball temporarily messes up his shapeshifting: he can choose when to change forms, but not which of the seven forms he'll change into. [[spoiler:Three Balls within six hours activate Monster Point, an [[SuperpoweredEvilSide uncontrollable berserking behemoth]] that lasts indefinitely until Chopper is knocked unconscious or into water, and that [[DeadlyUpgrade drains his body to the point it'll eventually kill him]]]].

* In ''TabletopGame/StarFleetBattles'', Andromedan power absorber panels absorb energy until they're full, moment when the ship will take damage as normal -if one already full is hit, it discharges all the stored energy as damage on the Andromedan ship-.

* In ''VideoGame/NetHack'', scrolls of charging can be used to refill your {{Magic Wand}}s and tools, and increase the enchantment on your rings. Tools aren't subject to this trope, but wands and rings charged too many times will explode, damaging you. Wands of wishing, being PurposefullyOverpowered, are extra-picky; they can only be charged once, ever, and if they already have the maximum [[ThreeWishes three charges]], they'll explode even if it was the first try.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', if anybody eats more then one Devil's fruit, they explode. This info is very important as [[spoiler: probable BigBad above all [=BigBads=] in the show Blackbeard is able to do it, albeit via unknown means]].

* Invoked and downplayed in ''Devil & Devil'': An early tentacled monster can suck time out of people, [[FountainOfYouth regressing them into babies]]. Ios takes advantage of that, and lets the monster feed on his time as much as it likes; unlike the monster's previous human victims (A young woman and two teenage girls), Ios is an angel who [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld has lived far longer than any human ever has]]. However, it doesn't cause the creature to destroy itself as Ios hoped it would, and merely damages it.

** A nation on the planet where naquadriah is found didn't see a problem with this, and simply made naquadriah bombs. And used them on the planet's other nations.
* After the discovery of [=ZPMs=], the heroes of ''Series/StargateAtlantis'' found a source that was even more powerful. Unfortunately, activating it would inherently create exotic particles that violate the laws of physics. Attempts to use the technology destroyed five sixth of a solar system and permanently damaged a parallel universe whose fate is unknown.

* This is cited as the reason [[KillItWithFire fire]] damages [[PrometheanTheCreated Prometheans]] so badly -- the Divine Fire that gives them life is overstimulated when put in direct contact with flame. Electricity can stir up the "like attracts like" quality to heal Prometheans, but exposure to fire is like taking a human's natural tendency to heal all the way into cancer territory.

* In ''{{Bionicle}}'', the Toa Nuva allow the Bohrok Kal to absorb all of their power. The Kal are unable to control the power, causing them to overload and destroy themselves with their own powers.

* In ''WorldOfWarcraft'', Festergut can impose this on players. Over the course of the fight he adds stacks of Gastric Bloat to his current target. Each application increases the damage that player does by 10%. The fight requires two tanks who swap which one is under attack at 8-9 stacks, then must absolutely avoid drawing his attention again until the bloat wears off. Or they explode at 10 stacks.
