* In ''VideoGame/SpecOpsTheLine'', [[BoomHeadshot headshots]] usually cause PinkMist but [[spoiler:later on in the game, as Walker begins to go unhinged, the headshot animation switches from the more realistic to constant full-on head explodey, with only a bleeding stump left. If you actually start paying attention to the shift it can get fairly disturbing.]]
** This also happens in a cutscene, when [[spoiler:Lugo headshots unarmed Radioman.]]

* The first time the protagonist uses the eponymous blade from the ''SwordOfTruth'' series, the powerful magic in the sword makes his enemy's head explode -- in slow motion, no less.

** In ''Fallout 3'', using the Mesmetron to collect slaves has a random chance effect of pissing them off for a few seconds before their heads pop. Likewise, anyone successfully enslaved gets a head-popping collar just to keep them in line.

** The Lone Wanderer's descriptions are hilarious:
-->"Well, at least it's non-lethal for people. For Mole Rats... not so much."
-->"It repelled their limbs from their body. Can you make one that works on people?"
-->"It appears that Mole Rats have a most fatal allergy to it. Explosively so."
-->"It's like explosive whack-a-Mole Rat. Can I get it in bullet form? For people?"
-->"It gives them quite a kick, like too much Jet or something."
** The add-on Mothership Zeta will have your head explode if you don't put your spacesuit on before opening the room's bay doors. {{Explosive decompression}} for the win! Which leaves one to wonder why you can open the bay doors when your hand, because of your Pip-Boy, is clearly exposed.
** ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' also has the exploding slave collars. As a twist, the ''Dead Money'' DLC puts the collar is on ''you''. And thanks to interference from the Sierra Madre's sound system, straying too close to active speakers or ham radios for too long leads to warning beeps that grow faster and faster until ''BOOM splat!''

* Creator/DavidCronenberg's ''Film/{{Scanners}}'' famously [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HY-03vYYAjA blew up a man's head]] around the beginning as a particularly bitchin' KickTheDog moment for villain Darryl Revok. Made even more awesome when you know how they did it: nothing fancy at all -- just a fake head and a twelve gauge shotgun aimed at the back of its neck! So [[TheMoreYouKnow now you know exactly what happens to a human head when hit point blank by a shotgun...]]\\
