* In ''Manga/HunterXHunter'', this is the idea behind [[spoiler:Genthru's]] "Countdown" ability: He can generate time bombs to attach onto people, which count down based on the person's heartbeat and guarantees to kill the target once it explodes. Hence, someone whose heartbeat is accelerated, either from nervousness, exertion, or something else, will meet their end faster. The only way to defuse it is to physically touch him and say, "I caught the bomber," no small feat considering he'll do ''anything'' to not let them.

* A few enemies in the Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog games do this, either attaching themselves to Sonic or immobilizing him, then exploding. One example is Grabber from in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'', who will come down from the ceiling when Sonic passes underneath, then grab Sonic, pull itself back to the ceiling, and explode after a short while. Mega Chopper in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog3AndKnuckles'' is a [[DownplayedTrope variant]], latching on to Sonic to drain him of his Rings. ''VideoGame/KnucklesChaotix'' has a benevolent and literal version of this trope: The game chains you to another character at all times--one of the possible characters is Bomb, a walking explosive whom you can grab and throw at enemies, and as Bomb is unharmed after detonating and he'll bounce back via the chain, you can do this over and over. Just don't get caught in Bomb's own explosions.

** ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'': Bond is trying to stop a gun-for-hire from blowing up a fuel truck to destroy a prototype airliner and manages to remove the flashlight-sized bomb from the truck and [[PineappleSurprise clip it to the bomber's belt while struggling with him]]. Cue a brief moment of WhyAmITicking (followed by a GoryDiscretionShot to Bond grinning) when the bomber triggers it.



* At the climax of ''Film/MissionImpossibleRogueNation'', [[BigBad Lane]] kidnapps [[spoiler: Benji]] and places him at a public place in London with a time-delay bomb strapped to him, to force Ethan to give Lane the disk.
* In ''Film/Speed'' the [[Big Bad Howard Payne]] kidnaps Annie,puts her in a vest full of explosives and handcuffs her to a train pole, so this troop definitely applies.
