* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' expansion ''Warlords of Draenor'' an introductory quest has the player steal a keg of powder from an armory which causes you to leave a trail wherever you walk. The idea is to take it to a detonator to blow up the armory but you can take your time and draw a massive trail which will burn impressively.

* BMovie ''Ator The Invincible'' ("CaveDwellers" on ''[[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]'') had a character do this with rock dust. Cue the guys: "She's making flash powder out of her own filth!"

Added DiffLines:

** Before the invention of percussion caps, this was essentially how all firearms worked to a [[DownplayedTrope very minor degree.]] After the weapon was loaded, powder was poured into a pan on top of the weapon and ignited, and an opening at the bottom of the pan allowed the flame to ignite the powder in the chamber. This method could be prone to malfunction, particularly in bad weather.

* In ''Film/CarryOn Henry'', Guy Fawkes lays a trail of gun powder to the kegs of gunpowder to blow up Parliament. The fuse goes out inches from the kegs, until, of course, the conspirators go close to see what went wrong. "OH FAWKES!" was the exclamation when the kegs blew up at just that moment.

* In the fourth ''GotrekAndFelix'' novel, the dwarfs lay a powder trail (and a couple kegs of powder) to collapse the tunnel leading into a dragon's lair in case they're overrun by orcs or bandits. Their engineer's rocket launcher accidentally sets it off, leading to much swearing since the dragon had quite a large hoard.
