* The music video for the Music/{{Disturbed}} version of ''Land of Confusion'' (made by ''{{Spawn}}'' artist Todd [=McFarlane=]) features a young girl with a bomb strapped to her body and a detonator in her hand, preparing to press the button as a gnarled cleric spouts off rhetoric.

** Later, Tenshinhan tried to avenge him with the Kikoho, an attack so deadly that it eats up the life of its user, with the objective of both killing Nappa and killing himself, so he would see Chiaotzu again. It didn't worked either.
** This happens one more time... would've been two if Android 16's bomb not been removed. Given Cell's [[OhCrap reaction]], it's actually quite possible that this one would've worked. The third time is done by ''Vegeta'' against Majin Buu, and like Chiaotzu's example before him his sacrifice is in vain. Turns out that explosions aren't a good way to kill a magical being that can regenerate on the ''molecular'' level.

*** [[AIISACrapShoot The Dalek battle computers decided that suicide isn't logical.]] [[JustifiedTrope Davros ordered them to do it anyway.]]
*** No, it's definitely the Daleks who say this -- the Doctor is holding Davros hostage with a bomb, but the Daleks think he's bluffing as suicide is il-log-i-cal. It's Davros who calls them off as he knows the Doctor is serious.

* A lot of goblin cards in ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering''. [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=193496 Grotag Siege-Runner]], for example.

** Sisters Repentia are nuns wearing a few rags and a few pieces of holy text who are armed with two-handed chainsaw swords, led by a black-clad Mistress who has a high tech whip in each hand, and who charge into battle in a fervor trying to redeem themselves in death or slaughter. Never let is be said Warhammer 40,000 knows what restraint means.
** Now canceled Warhammer Fantasy and AgeOfSigmar have flagellants, who are doing essentially the same thing as the Sisters Repentia, but with proper DungAges clothing, medieval weapons, no fanservice, and no BDSM undertones.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', [[TropeOverdosed naturally]]. Tau commander battlesuits are equipped with bombs. Chillingly, the Tau themselves consider this "the greatest expression of the Greater Good one can make". This isn't used ''en masse'' because [[PragmaticVillainy battlesuits - and good commanders - take a long time to produce]], but it probably won't be long before the Tau begin throwing entire waves of suicide bombers at enemy lines.

The Tau otherwise do not have suicide attacks in their army, and view suicidal last stands as foolish; they prefer to feign retreat, or really retreat, then come back when the situation is more favorable.
** At least as of 4th Edition, and we're in 7th as of 2016, this is portrayed not as a suicide attack
but as a HeroicSacrifice; the model with the bomb, [[TakingYouWithMe when it probably won't would be long before dead anyway due to wounds or a sweeping advance]], triggers a bomb that damages the attackers. In the older edition, it allowed the bomber's comrades to pull away from close combat and have a chance for survival. In the newer edition, battlesuits generally will save against the bomb, and the explosion may tip combat in their favor, allowing the Tau begin throwing entire waves of suicide bombers at enemy lines.line to hold. In either case, the model with the bomb only sets it off when the model would already be dead and when its unit is almost certain to be overrun and slain.

* Super Mutants in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' have a "Suicider" type. When they detect an enemy, they arm their mini nukes and charge, hoping to tank gunfire until they can blow up. If you kill one before it blows up, you can loot the mini nuke; if not, you loot nuclear material.

*** Crazy Ivans in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2'' can attach time-bomb to virtually every unit, including friendly or mind-controlled, thus making any unit ingame potential Suicide Bomber.

* The Shofixti Scout's Glory Device in ''StarControl'' is just a big bomb that Shofixti ships carry. Once set off, it automatically kills the Shofixti ship, but, if close enough to the enemy ship, it can also damage or destroy that ship as well. Interestingly, if a Shofixti ship kills the last Hierarchy ship in a scenario with its Glory Device, the Alliance wins, even if the Alliance has no ships left either.
