* A training exercise in ''Spandex Force 2: Superhero U'''s "Good Samaritanism" course is disarming a bomb in the middle of the city by playing a match-3 game. Played for laughs when the player character gets fed up with trying to guess the right wire and blasts it with their elemental powers.

* VideoGame/KeepTalkingAndNobodyExplodes makes an entire game out of Hollywood-style bomb disarming, including multiple variants on "cut the right wire". The trick is that it's a two player game; one person is the expert with the manual and isn't allowed to see the bomb, the other is the technician who isn't allowed to see the manual and everything depends on clear communication between them. (It's set up so it can be played by two people over the phone or online voice chat.)
