* Scoring a headshot with a strong enough weapon in ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'' will result in this trope. Even better, instead of [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation leaving a neck stump with a clean white bone sticking out like a blob of mozzarella on an incredibly poorly made margherita]], the lower half of the victim's head will be left behind, which is TruthInTelevision for those killed by high-caliber bullets to the head.
* In ''VideoGame/TheLastStand'', zombie heads occasionally explode when shot.

* This happens surprisingly often on ''OneThousandWaysToDie'', even though exploding heads are impossible with the vast majority of death scenarios shown.

** It should be noted though that this is not always the result of "eating a gun". For example, the infamous "Bjork Stalker", according to the FBI, had intended to cover a sign situated behind his head with blood and gore by shooting himself in the mouth. But the bullet he used was too small a calibre and didn't exit his head (as a result, the suicide video - and yes, it is online of you really want to see it - is actually bloodless, though he still bled out off-camera).

* In ''EclipsePhase'', this is a side-effect of using the emergency backup farcaster.

* 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...]]\\
