The rose smell is intended to cover it up.]]

* ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', also written by YoshihiroTogashi, has the Miniature Rose, a bomb which is similar and ''deadlier'' than the atom bomb. Its name is given by its rose-shaped smoke cloud. The bomb is a low-budget ''weapon of mass destruction'' and is so small that it can even implanted in ''humans''. The bomb has not only a large, wide range and destructive power, the bomb scatters a vast quantity of an unparalleled poison at the instant it explodes. Those who survive the initial explosion will suffer direct internal damages caused by rapid uptake of the poison. The poison catalyzes the production and emission of new poison until the victims finally succumb to death. And the poison is ''infectious''. The Minituare Rose has taken the live of several billions people and about 80% of nations possess this bomb, it's official forbidden.
