* 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 ''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.

* MarvelUniverse character Sebastian Shaw's mutant power of absorbing kinetic energy is pretty useful, but can be circumvented if you drop something on him quick and hard enough.

** The Absorbing Man, in his first battle with [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]], tried to absorb the power of the Earth. He blew up.
*** The same thing happened to the Absorbing Man while fighting Comicbook/TheSentry. Sentry simply fed him his own power, and the Absorbing Man stopped enjoying it very quickly and begged Sentry to stop before exploding.

* ''YuYuHakusho'': Kuwabara vs. Byakko. Kuwabara repeatedly attacks Byakko with his spirit sword, the beast absorbing the spirit energy and growing with each attack. Eventually, he absorbs so much that he bloats up and gets propelled away by the "worst case of gas [Yusuke's] ever seen!"

* ''{{Kinnikuman}}'' has Buffaloman trying to absorb the main character's Burning Inner Strength. It proves to be too much for his body to handle and he quickly reinserts it into his victim.
* Bread in YakitateJapan is SeriousBusiness enough that, if made well enough, can cause crazy reactions, transformations and even hurl the eater back in time or temporarily send them to heaven. Just before the final bake-off, Azuma tries to perfect his ideal [[{{Pun}} "Ja-pan"]] [[labelnote:*]]'Pan' is Japanese for bread[[/labelnote]] to defeat Kirisaki with, and has Kawachi taste test all the bread that comes out of it.

* In Manga/UchiNoMusumeNiTeODasuNa Athena gets sexually assaulted by a plant that feeds off women's ecstasy. Athena's libido ends up being to much for it so it explodes trying to adsorb all of her ecstasy.
