* ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'': Kanna does this during an [[AdaptationExpansion anime-only segment]]. Of course, Kanna is a dragon with SuperStrength, so she ends up vaporizing the melon and splattering the remains all over Kobayashi and Shouta's faces.

* The Japanese version of ''VideoGame/HeyYouPikachu'' had this. It was re-worked into a piñata game with a Pokéball on a string in the American release.

** A later episode had Steven inadvertently growing a grove of watermelons with previously unknown GreenThumb powers shaped like him. They become animate, but act in his defense outside of his control, leading to the gems fighting off an army on the beach, and [[VictoryByEndurance eventually losing]]. They specifically smash into slices, rather than pulp.

* The TrainingMontage used as the first ending of ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' has one scene showing Yuya, Yuzu and Gonganzaka trying to hit a watermelon blindfolded. The first still shows Yuya leaned over the watermelon as he missed with Gonganzaka leaning back for a strike. The next still has Yuya with a very painful bump on his noggin, Gonganzaka apologetic as the teens eat watermelon.

''Suikawari'' in Japanese. A party game, usually in the BeachEpisode of Japanese media, where someone is blindfolded, given a large stick (possibly a wooden sword), and directed to smash/crack a watermelon.

* Gallagher and his Sledge-O-Matic may be the first that comes to the mind of American audiences. Of course, he wouldn't be blindfolded and would smash anything that would make a big splatter.
