* ''Main/AbleTeam''. Carl Lyons tries to create an improvised version when he has to dispose of the body of a guard. He sets the timer on a video recorder, then puts the wires in a pool of gasoline so the short-circuit will start a fire. Unfortunately this method is unreliable as the fire starts too late, after the body has been discovered.

* A lesser-seen card in the ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' card game was [[http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Time_Bomb_%28CCG_-_MechWarrior%29 Time Bomb]], which had three particularly nasty effects. Firstly, it had no upper limit on its power--every subsequent round would increase its damage up until it was either used or destroyed. Secondly, it could target any 'Mech or site, including the all important deck, and each point of damage suffered to the deck forces an opponent to discard a card. Lastly, ''it had no activation limit.'' If the (surprisingly tough) Time Bomb card was in danger of being destroyed, you could tap it on the spot and deal last-minute spite damage to your opponent. It is possible to claim victory by deploying multiple Time Bombs and setting up StoneWall defenses to protect them, then detonating the bombs to mill your opponent's deck (which served as their hit points).
