*** The More Perks Mod for Fallout: New Vegas adds the perk Superior Mind that allows the Courier, if they have an Intelligence score of 9 or the max 10, to make an opponent's head explode with a dialogue option. If it's used on an opponent whose Intelligence score is higher, however, then crippling damage is applied to the user's own head.

** ''Hell On Earth'' also features the Combine (no, not [[VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}} that Combine]]), an EvilEmpire whose soldiers each have a "loyalty chip" implanted at the base of their skull. It allows them to safely use Combine-issue weapons and vehicles, but if the chip determines that its owner could be about to reveal any Combine secrets, or if s/he defects from the Combine and is later discovered by a Combine officer who knows the correct passcode...well, they're not nicknamed "headbanger chips" because [[BigBad General Throckmorton]] is into heavy metal music.

Because of its BizarreAlienBiology, the loss of its head isn't terribly inconvenient and it simply grows another one.

* Spike's head explodes twice, via BloodlessCarnage, in the WesternAnimation/{{Droopy}} shorts "Wags to Riches" and [[UpdatedRerelease "Millionaire Droopy"]].
** Spike's head first explodes after dressing up as a press photographer. After rigging a camera with a mortar shell in place of film aimed in [=Droopy=]'s direction, the camera turns around and fires at Spike. After the photo is taken, Spike leaves with a blanket hovering over an empty space where his head used to be.
** The second time comes up when Spike sets up a shotgun to fire when a bathroom door opens. [=Droopy=] enters the bathroom, but nothing happens. When Spike opens it... yeah. The carnage is hidden by the bathroom wall and is further obfuscated by a card conveniently located on an easily accessible table.

* There's a [[http://www.snopes.com/humor/iftrue/chess.asp persistent rumor]] of a Russian guy whose head literally exploded during a chess tournament. According to the legend, he had some type of electrical imbalance in his brain, which [[FridgeLogic must have]] somehow boiled his cranial liquids, causing pressure to build up inside his skull, exploding his head "as if someone had put a bomb in his cranium". (In terms of "head exploding like a watermelon with a firecracker in it," that would be impossible. There is no electrical configuration possible in a brain to be able to generate enough force to rupture the skull. Aneurysms, weak areas in your brain's circulation, can rupture under increased blood pressure, which is entirely possible in a stressful situation, and this can be instantly or near instantly fatal, but nothing in in your brain can blow your head up.)
** The story actually originates from a spoof article in the Weekly World News.
