* Charles Murray, a Scottish career soldier who signed on in the French Foreign Legion for the experience, related a story of the aftermath of a gruelling training march in full kit with weapons load. After thirty kilometres' march, the Legion recruits established camp and one man got into a tent shared with seven other recruits, gratefully and heedlessly throwing off his pack and webbing. Unfortunately, the action of shucking his pack also tugged the pin out of a grenade insecurely attached to one of the straps.,. All eight were killed and shrapnel injured men in neighbouring tents.

The pin is pulled from a grenade on a [[BadassBandolier grenade belt]], causing the wearer and anyone in the immediate vicinity to explode. It can be used to elaborately kill a tooled-up enemy or as a makeshift suicide belt. Expect it to be used on a nearly triumphant enemy leading to a cathartic OhCrap moment for the villain before he explodes.

->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.
