* ''VideoGame/LetItDie'': woe be to the young fighter who makes a snack of a Boomshroom. Eating one guarantees the player a one-way trip to death (and their head, a one-way trip to the ceiling).

* ''WebComic/SluggyFreelance'': In "GOFOTRON Champion of the Cosmos", the [[NighInvulnerable invincible]] [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Lobo}} Lodoze]] faced off against the just {{badass}} [[KillerRabbit Bun-bun]]. The fight ended quickly after Bun-bun shoved his gun entirely up Lodoze's nose and then hit him in the face with a bar stool, blowing up the back of his head. [[HealingFactor That slowed him down]] [[ImplacableMan for a bit.]]

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has several ways to make someone's head explode, the [[PsychicPowers psionic powers]] ''intellect bomb'' and ''cranial deluge'' being the most marked examples. So can some lesser powers, such as ''mind thrust'', which has been described as causing the victim's head to explode when you kill them with it. Then there's ''detonate'', which makes someone explode and damages people around him; even if he survives, he takes so much damage his head apparently made a decent attempt at exploding. In addition to this, if a character for any reason obtain over 3 times their maximum hit point total (most likely as a result of too much time spent on a Positive Energy plane), they will explode, either "merely" their head or their entire body.
** For earlier versions, conjure water in cranium. They get rid of it though.
* In ''TabletopGame/EclipsePhase'', this is a side-effect of using the emergency [[BrainUploading backup]] [[BodyBackupDrive farcaster]]. Since it's powered by antimatter.

* "Freaks" in the 80s action movie-inspired game ''TabletopGame/TheHardWay'' can do this to people with their minds, ''Film/{{Scanners}}''-style.
* OlderThanRadio: The British card game ''[[http://www.wopc.co.uk/games/jaques-illustrated-proverbs.html Illustrated Proverbs]]'', circa 1885, has this trope on the first card for "They love too much who die for love." (Possibly also AteHisGun.)

* In the Valentine's Smoochie (featuring Giggles) on the ''HappyTreeFriends'' website, if you pick the option "Flowers", she would sniff it, and sneeze a few times before the final one blows her head off, complete with her brains sticking on the wall.
