* Both ''VideoGame/FeedingFrenzy'' games have sea mines as hazards the fishes have to avoid. Should one touch it and BOOM! They can also be quite useful, as predators, too, go BOOM when hitting one.

* The 1970's Australian series ''Series/PatrolBoat'' had an episode where a Japanese WW2 sea mine had drifted inshore, but blowing it up would mean destroying some historical Aborginal cave paintings.

* Sea Mines, like their land-based cousins, could serve as more of a deterrent than a direct weapon. Enemy ships had to sail around known minefields, thus a force could mine waters on the most direct route between an enemy base and their own waterways. Such a tactic was used during WorldWarOne to try and limit the effectiveness of German U-Boats by forcing them to take a longer route to get at Allied shipping with the North Sea Mine Barrage.

* ''VideoGame/TombRaiderII'' has mines blocking the exit of the second level, which takes place in a canal. Driving your boat near the mines would cause them to explode and you along with them, so the solution the puzzle was to speed towards the mines and jump out of the boat to trigger them, then get a second boat to beat the time puzzle before the exit closed. Or you could just [[DungeonBypass swim underneath the mines]] and finish the level that way.

* ''VideoGame/TombRaider2013'' picks up the tradition in one of the later areas, a stretch of beach [[DerelictGraveyard choked with shipwrecks]] from every era since the beginning of seafaring. The whole area is littered with about a dozen sea mines that look exactly as described at the top of the page. Some float in the sea, others lie half-buried in the sand, all of them are harmless [[TooDumbToLive unless you shoot at one while standing near it]]. Finding and detonating them all completes one of the area's challenges and rewards Lara a nice amount of ExperiencePoints.
