* [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi notable]] Hermann Goering had a major LongLastLook, when he realised he had to abandon his home at Karinhall as it was in the direct path of the Russian advance into Germany. He took a leisured final tour of the estate and mansion house whilst his escort set demolition charges and fretted about the nearness of the Red Army, willing him to get on with it. then, in a MagnificentBastard moment, Goering insisted on personally pushing the plunger detonator which activated the explosive charges to destroy the building, thus denying the Russians a propaganda trophy.

At the end the BigBad suffers a KarmicDeath when he shoots one of the guards, who falls on the detonator and detonates a mine under the BigBad's boat.

* ''Trail Of The PinkPanther'' has a scene where a young Jacques Clouseau is using one while he was a member of the French underground during World War II. Typical of Clouseau, it doesn't work right.
* In the WoodyAllen comedy ''Film/{{Sleeper}}'', there's a RunningGag involving a laser cannon that's fired using a plunger detonator. Each time part of the weapon is destroyed, instead of what's in front of it.

* The Rock Riders uses one to blow the canyon in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad''. Justified as the ScavengerWorld is full of pre-digital technology [[BreakOutTheMuseumPiece as it holds up better in the harsh conditions]]. It's also a distant shot, so as per TheCoconutEffect the plunging motion is used to make it clear to the audience what is happening.
