* ''{{SCTV}}'' - a quasi-reality show called "Revenge" skillfully prepares and film acts of vengeance as viewer requests...but an angry guy shows up on set wired with explosives ranting about how earlier acts of the show have ruined his life. The show suffers a quick, untimely end.

* As a reference to the CaptainAmerica example, ''WesternAnimation/TheSuperHeroSquadShow'' has an episode where the Scarlet Witch is sent back in time to UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, caught by the Red Skull and then tied to a rocket, but is then saved by Captain America and the Invaders (Bucky, the Jim Hammond Human Torch, and Toro).

See also DeathTrap and BoundAndGagged, as this is a SubTrope of both, and ExplosiveLeash and WhyAmITicking, which are {{Sister Trope}}s. RidingTheBomb is also closely related.

* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' had a case where a civilian was knocked unconscious, strapped to a bomb and then sent into a ski-equipment department of a large store. The intention was to figure out who had been buying red shirts for the past few weeks and, if the mystery wasn't solved soon, the bombs on the man would explode. [[spoiler: Turns out the man was the 'culprit'. The bombs are fake, which Conan figured out when he noticed a lipstick stain on the man's jacket from being in a crowded train and how no reasonable person would go onto a crowded train if they could explode at any moment.]] With the case solved as well, the bombs were taken off and no harm was done.

* In ''Film/{{Swordfish}}'' the hostages in the bank robbery all have explosive vests covered with ball bearings, turning them all into walking [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M18_Claymore_mine claymore mines]]. Unfortunately for one unlucky hostage, the SWAT team didn't consider that the vests also have a proximity trigger, setting off the bomb as shes dragged outside the bank. The opening scene shows just how much damage the explosion does to the surrounding area with a BulletTime OrbitalShot.

* Not sure if this counts since it's not a literal example, but "Series/Castle" has Beckett standing on a bomb with a pressure plate, which will explode if she gets off of it.
