** Likewise, most fears regarding nuclear terrorism aren't of terrorists acquiring a conventional nuclear device, so much as what is frequently called a "dirty bomb". Conventional explosives wired to a radioactive source, such as the plutonium core of a conventional nuclear explosive. The initial explosion is comparatively small, but the real danger lies in the highly radioactive material that gets spread around, like the fallout of a nuclear weapon without the city-destroying blast. It can affect miles of land and leave it radioactive for decades, depending on the yield.

This concept of a 'dirty' bomb has been taken to the natural conclusion of the hypothetical ''Cobalt Bomb'', a nuclear weapon with a cobalt casing that is designed to scatter fragments of irradiated cobalt ''everywhere'' when initiated, deliberately irradiating the entire region where it was set off.

* Bakuda of ''Literature/{{Worm}}'' has this as her [[GadgeteerGenius Tinker]] specialization. Her least lethal variants kill off bugs, freeze the target area in time, and [[AgonyBeam induce pain so intense it permanently renders victims less sensitive to pain]]. Her most lethal variants convert any material to crystal, disassemble people ''[[AndIMustScream without killing them]]'', and generate temporary ''black holes''.

* Flashbangs are normally used to disorient people but when ''AlanWake'' uses them, they either OneHitKill the normal Taken and possessed objects, or [[WeakenedByTheLight deplete the stronger Taken's shadows]] to take 'em down.

* In the 1988-89 DCComics ''ComicBook/{{Invasion}}'' crossover, a member of the alien Dominator species develops and detonates a "gene bomb" which targets those with the "metahuman" gene (responsible for the emergence of Earthling superheroes) and causes them to lose control of their powers. While it was supposed to eventually prove lethal, [[CListFodder the only death directly due to the bomb was a C-list member of a C-list team:]] Scott Fischer of the ComicBook/DoomPatrol.

* In ''HogsOfWar'', pigs promoted into the Medic class-line gain access to a Medicine Ball, which functions exactly like a grenade but releases pink healing gas instead of fiery explosive death. Espionage pigs also get a [[StandardStatusEffects 'poison gas' grenade]], which is pretty much ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.

* ''StaticShock'': Richie made a [[ShockAndAwe shock]] bomb that Static could use if he ran out of juice, and a net bomb that shot a net out when it hit something. When he came into his own intelligence superpowers and became Gear, he came up with others, such as ''quick-cement'' bombs.
