* One of ''MagicTheGathering'''s joke supplements contains a 'letter bomb' card, which gets shuffled into the opponent's deck and hits him for massive damage when drawn. There was a legit card that has a similar damaging effect though it worked by poisoning (turning face up then being shuffled into their deck) one of their cards rather than being planted.

* ''Literature/{{Wasp}}'': One of the protagonist's diversionary tactics is to send packages to several enemy officials, which contain a loudly ticking mechanism and a message saying "This package could have killed you". He later sends another batch which looks and sounds exactly the same on the outside... except this time the bombs are real.



* One case in ''ApolloJusticeAceAttorney'' involved one of these. Specifically, [[spoiler:a poisoned stamp that the recipient was asked to use on his response letter]].
