* In ''VideoGame/TimeSplitters2'', the player character is required to do this to get an NPC out of a wild west jail. One must create a powder trail from underneath a lantern inside the jail to a wagon loaded with powder barrels pushed against the wall outside, then shoot the lantern off the ceiling.
** You what? I always just shot the barrels. When they exploded, they lit the trail.

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' did this in "Attack of the Prehistoric Pokemon", but with a really long fuse line leading to a stack of dynamite (one could argue that it was smart of Team Rocket, but they ended up following Ash anyway to stop the defusing). One pile-up later and it all goes to naught, however, as Pikachu zaps the entire load. "Chaaaaa..." indeed.

* 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.
