* ''VideoGame/CounterStrike'' is best known for its Defuse maps. The terrorist team must plant a bomb (whose activation passcode is always 7355608) on either of two different bomb sites; if the bomb is planted, the counter-terrorist team must defuse it. If the bomb explodes, the terrorist team wins; if the bomb is defused, the counter-terrorist team wins. The bomb explodes 40 seconds after it's planted.
** ''Global Offensive'' adds audio cues about the status of the bomb: dramatic music that kicks in when the bomb is planted, the music crescendoes on the last 10 seconds, then in the last two seconds you hear a coil whine, a quick series of beeps, then BOOM -- "TERRORISTS WIN". Additionally, if you're on the terrorist team, your character will say something like "We are going to do it!" or "Our victory is near, brothers!" on the last few seconds.

* The three nukes in ''VideoGame/{{Rama}}'', as a safeguard. When some of the humans arm them, you're given ''six hours'' to find and disarm one and thus simultaneously shut down all of them...except there's a [[GameBreakingBug glitch]] that subtracts more time on the fly as you're moving from screen to screen.

* The {{Nickelodeon}} GameShow ''Series/ThinkFast'' featured one in the first version of its "Locker Room" BonusRound. While being given 30 seconds to match items or characters behind lockers, the first contestant had to open the locker containing the Time Bomb in 20 seconds; otherwise, the second contestant would only be given 20 seconds (instead of 30) to find the remaining matches.

* In the ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' episode [[Recap/LegendsOfTomorrowS2E5Compromised "Compromised"]], Damian Darhk hides a Time Bomb in the White House (under a table at a State Dinner attended by both RonaldReagan and MikhailGorbachev, no less).

* Done and re-done in the 2D ''{{Metroid}}'' series, where at the end of each 2-D game (and at the ''beginning'' of ''Super Metroid'') to boot, where after the BigBad is defeated, Samus has 5 minutes of Real Time to escape wherever she's in before a time bomb explodes. Always followed by an OutrunTheFireball moment as we see Samus' ship escape the explosion with seconds to spare, regardless of how much time was actually left on the clock.
** ''MetroidPrime 2'' has Samus escaping the DarkWorld before it is reabsorbed. Naturally, her EvilCounterpart is blocking the exit. Cue timed FinalBoss battle.
*** They pulled that same trick in ''Metroid: Fusion'' where you think that after beating the SA-X silly, you set off the bomb ''yourself'' that you're homefree. Nuhuh. One little old Metroid escaped and... has grown into an Omega.

* ''Literature/LiveAndLetDie''. JamesBond hears a ticking in his apartment and throws himself behind cover. He's beginning to think ItsProbablyNothing when there's a loud bang. Turns out the bomb was connected to a blank cartridge, and was [[ImpliedDeathThreat only meant to frighten Bond]]. There's also a note.

* ''Literature/WetDesertTrackingDownATerroristOnTheColoradoRiver'': The ignition mechanism for the bomb at Glen Canyon Dam ignites the bomb 18 seconds after triggering the elevator, so that the bomb will have been transported down the dam and can thus cause more damage.

* ''ElFilibusterismo'' has a 19th-century version in the form of [[spoiler:a gas lamp.]]
* Boba Fett uses one to pull a SomebodySetUpUsTheBomb on Bossk in ''[[BountyHunterWars The Mandalorian Armor]]'' so he can steal Bossk's ship (long story). As Fett gets away in the ''Hound's Tooth'', Bossk hears a voice aboard ''Slave I'' counting down. The timer reaches zero and ... nothing happens. [[spoiler:Fett was planning to come back to retrieve ''Slave I'' after he got the price on his own head lifted. [[CaptainObvious That's kinda hard to do if it's free hydrogen.]]]]
