->He loves to go on patrol, all alone, with a rifle, a Luger, a knife, plenty of ammo, and half a dozen grenades hung to his belt by their safety rings, so he can pluck them and throw them like ripe tomatoes. The fact that hanging grenades by their rings is not a good way to live to a respectable old age doesn't bother him at all. In fact, he tells with great relish how one came loose while he was creeping around a German position, and how it exploded under his feet, kicking his legs up in the air but leaving him miraculously unscratched.

* The Question does this to a Cadmus mercenary in the ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' episode "Fearful Symmetry", but he's nice enough to remove the grenade belt before pulling the pins so the guy has a chance to get clear of the blast.

Compare ExplosiveStupidity for when someone TooDumbToLive manages to do this to themselves. May be averted if someone decides to make a HeroicSacrifice by JumpingOnAGrenade.

* In ''[[Film/TheFastAndTheFurious Furious 7]]: Dom manages to pull a variant of this by hanging a bag of granades onto Jakande's chopper. It takes a shot by Hobbs from the gun to set them off tho.

* ''Film/MrAndMrsSmith'': John does this accidentally during the freeway chase, going for the grenade but accidentally yanking the pin. He quickly gets away, the explosion taking out the mook and the car he was riding in.

* ''Film/CasinoRoyale'': A bomber tries to use a tiny keyring bomb attached to a fuel tanker to blow up a plane. After a long fight with Bond, the bomber triumphantly pushes the switch on his detonator...only to realize that Bond had attached the bomb to his belt loop. Cue OhCrap from the bomber and an amused grin from Bond.

* One of the ways to complete "I Put A Spell On You" for the Legion in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' is to [[spoiler: pull the pin on Davey Crenshaw's grenade and later use his pranking nature to convince Colonel Hsu that he planted the bomb on the NCR monorail.]]
** In fact, a variation on this trope is a valid way to stealthily initiate hostilities in the series, in general. You can reverse-pickpocket your own explosives, most often grenades, into NPC inventories... the obvious implication being that you pulled the pin beforehand. If they catch on, they even give an OhCrap or WhyAmITicking reaction.

** A radio show in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' identifies this technique as "the old Shady Sands Shuffle." Performing it increments the "Pants Exploded" statistic and the first one earns the "Psychotic Prankster" achievement.

* In the third ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'' game this is possible to do when engaging in melee. Just make sure you get away in time.
* In ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' "Nines" Rodriguez saves the PC from Sabbat goons by threatening them with a grenade. Given Nines is at a power level to curb stomp the 3 young Sabbat easily, '''you''' [[TheLoad seem to be the only reason]] he needs to use such a card.
