* In ''OnePiece'' Pell uses his falcon transformation to take a huge bomb away from the capital city.
* One episode of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime had Riley and his Lucario trap a large explosion inside a sphere of Aura and then force it into the sky to detonate harmlessly. A similar thing happened in ''PokemonDiamondAndPearlAdventure'', but with Hareta using Empoleon's Hydro Pump to force the (as of yet unexploded) bomb into the air and many Pokemon containing the blast with Light Screen.
* In the third episode of ''TigerAndBunny'', Barnaby defuses the bomb down to the last 2 wires [[WireDilemma but can't decide which one to cut.]] That's when he and his partner Kotetsu decide to just kick the annoying contraption through the roof instead.

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': This has happened a bunch of times when the Judges had a nuclear device on their hands that they couldn't dismantle in time.
** In a story set after "Necropolis", the members of a secret club of murderers go on a simultaneous killing spree to break the record for most murders committed in a single night. After they're all dead, their president triggers a nuke he had stored in his vault. An H-Wagon dunks it into the Black Atlantic, which is highly polluted anyway.
** In the "Total War" arc, the democratic terrorists detonate stolen nuclear devices in Mega City One to force the Judges to step down. The last bomb is dropped off in the relative safety of the Cursed Earth. The only casualties are several mutants who fought it might be worth something and decided to investigate.

* In ''Medusa's Child'', the cargo plane is free to go anywhere since one of the nuke's tracking devices (the one to ensure it wasn't moved from the Pentagon) failed, so they decide to fool the second one (the one to ensure its creator's ex-wife didn't move away from it) by taping the wife's pacemaker to it and drop it to the ocean.

Picture this: You're one of the heroes of the story, and you and your allies find yourselves stuck between a rock and death by fiery explosion. What do you do? You can't OutrunTheFireBall, BombDisposal isn't an option, and JumpingOnAGrenade won't do much good either. Then, you remember that you're the only one who can fly (or is the only one thinking fast enough), and that there's only one real thing left for a hero to do... RelocatingTheExplosion far away from your friends. Be it a missile, a bomb, [[GreyGoo matter eating nanomachines]], or some other form of mass death, it's up to you take it somewhere it can detonate "safely." Cue a distant explosion, and the nagging question the viewers are left concerning your ultimate fate.

* Parodied in the Creator/AdamWest [[Film/BatmanTheMovie Batman film]]. Batman finds a classic comedy bomb in a waterfront restaurant -- a black sphere complete with huge, burning fuse -- and runs it outside to get rid of it. Everywhere he goes, however, there's some innocent blocking his way: nuns walking slowly down an alley, a woman pushing a baby carriage! He sprints up one side of the dock and down the other, occasionally [[RunningGag running into the same]] [[IncrediblyLamePun moving barricades]] over and over again. Exasperated, he eventually groans, "Some days, you just can't get rid of a bomb." Of course, the trope is spun into [[spoiler:BombDisposal]] at the last second, but the scene was meant to make the audience think Bats was still [[spoiler:holding the bomb]] when it went off.

** "Ex Deus Machina" saw Ba'al hold Earth to ransom by filling a skyscraper full of naquadah and turning it into a bomb with a yield probably well beyond the city-buster range. Since the ''Prometheus'' was on station, once Carter tracked down the bomb she just had them beam the whole building into orbit.
