* JUNGLE does this often in ''Anime/{{K}}'' - not with casualties, though. They hide bombs in plushies, plastic fruit, etc. In the anime, it's mostly to Kuroh and Neko, but in the manga, they have ordinary users of their chat app leave these in public places, not knowing what's in them.

* This turns up a lot in the ''Franchise/PinkPanther'' films from ''Film/AShotInTheDark'' onwards. More often than not, they result in NonFatalExplosions.

* In ''Literature/HaloFirstStrike'', the humans on the planet Reach allow the invading Covenant to come into possession of a NOVA bomb, which is a basically a Mega Nuke capable of destroying an entire planet. The [[BatmanGambit plan]] is for the Covenant to take it back to their capital for study and detonate it in the process. [[spoiler: It's revealed in ''Literature/HaloGhostsOfOnyx that they instead took it to one of their colony worlds that nonetheless has a large fleet orbiting it, and inadvertently set it off, [[EarthShatteringKaboom annihilating the fleet and a great deal of the planet]]. However, the fleet that was blown up was, while not exactly friendly to humanity, part of an EnemyCivilWar against the main Covenant.]]
