* A variation on this trope is a valid way to stealthily initiate hostilities in the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series. By reverse-pickpocketing explosives into a target's inventory, you blow them up; the obvious implication is that you pulled the pin beforehand. If they catch on, they even give an OhCrap or WhyAmITicking reaction.

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' introduces Super Mutant Suiciders, a version of the super mutant that rushes the player with a mini-nuke as a suicide bomber. The safest way to take them out is to snipe the bomb (preferably from long range and before they notice you), killing both them and anyone else in the vicinity.

* Done famously in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' by Joseph Joestar against [[spoiler:Straizo]]. The latter being a superhuman vampire, along with knowing how to use the Ripple, Joseph had no chance at a plain brawl. So as he runs away, he reveals that he had somehow snuck not one, but '''several''' grenades, strung together, onto his opponent's clothes, and his running away made him unpin all the grenades at once.

* 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.
