* In the first episode of ''WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle'', Natasha hands Bullwinkle a gift box that contains a bomb that's will go off in 30 seconds. However, when she finds that the door out of the place is locked and can't find the key, she throws the bomb out the window and onto the ground below, blowing her partner Boris sky-high.

* In a 1968 ''WesternAnimation/ThePinkPanther'' cartoon "The Pink Package Plot," a terrorist forces the Panther to deliver a package containing a ticking time bomb to an estate before [[WhenTheClockStrikesTwelve twelve noon]], or he will be shot. But an AngryGuardDog keeps preventing the Panther from getting into the estate to deliver the package. In another attempt to evade the dog, the Panther accidentally drops the package from the sky into an open manhole, where it floats down the sewer line, and just as the clock strikes twelve, the bomb explodes right under the manhole the terrorist is standing on, sending him flying into the estate yard where the guard dog chases him away!

* In a ''ComicBook/TheAvengers'' and ''ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}}'' crossover novel, Hydra planted a bomb at an experimental power plant that both the Avengers and Thunderbolts arrived to stop. Iron Man went to disarm it, only for Hawkeye to appear and reveal that he'd disarmed the bomb twenty minutes before the Avengers made it there.

* ''Manga/Golgo13''. Duke Togo finds out another hitman is also stalking his target. He [[PinPullingTeeth teeth-pulls the pin]] from a grenade (presumably to show he's just as cool as Togo) and tosses it back into the room where he just [[KneeCapping kneecap]]-interrogated a man. Duke shows he's even cooler by calmly looking at his watch, whereupon half the buildings around them blow up.

* In one script for the now cancelled ''TheFlash'' movie, Vandal Savage declared he'd set a time bomb, and if the Flash, the "Fastest Man Alive" couldn't find it in time, it would kill his wife. Flash checks literally everywhere for it, but couldn't find it in time, and had to escape, saving himself and [[WhatAnIdiot not carrying her away]]. A few decades later, Savage offhand mentions: "What bomb? I used a rocket to blow up Wifey-Poo".

* ''Softly Tread The Brave'' (an abridged children's version is called ''17 Seconds'') by Ivan Southall, about two Australian aerial mine defusers in WW2. 17 seconds is the amount of time you have to flee once the mine starts ticking.

* In the ''Film/TheShadow'' movie starring one of the Baldwin brothers there is a nuclear device (in a Pre-WorldWarII 1930's setting America) which was going to blow up in 13 hours or something similar, but of course tampering with it trying to shut it off lead to ... 0.1 seconds left on the timer. Hooray!

* ''Series/DangerUXB'', being about a BombDisposal unit during WorldWarTwo, is a more realistic portrayal of this trope. The Germans keep dropping bombs with timed detonators because they know they'll cause more disruption and panic. Naturally no-one knows when the bomb will go off. An exception is in "Seventeen Seconds to Glory" when a naval mine is being defused. Once the timer starts they explode in seventeen seconds regardless. The naval officer drops the tiny device used to deactivate the timer -- and at that point the timer starts whirring. While the man with him runs like hell, the officer scrabbles desperately in the rubble for the device. He's able to find it at the last moment.

* ''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.
