Blow Them Up From The Inside

To kill an invulnerable enemy, make them swallow an armed bomb.

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
Kind of like Insert Grenade Here, except with living beings. Should We Have This? or should I just expand Insert Grenade Here to include non-mechanical examples?

Examples:

  • In Justice League: The New Frontier, John Cloud jumps into the T-Rex's maw with live grenades in his hands.
  • In the first Men in Black movie, Agent K lets himself be swallowed whole by the Bug, in order to retrieve the BFG it swallowed earlier and blast it from the inside.
  • In Underworld: Awakeninig, Selene kills the uber-Lycan by placing a grenade inside a stomach wound before it heals.
