Re: removal of Zeus:
  • Zeus ate his lover Metis, knowing her child would be a threat to him. Unfortunately she was already pregnant. The child grew to term inside Zeus' head, giving Zeus terrible headaches. The blacksmith to the Gods, Hephaestus, evntually had to shatter Zeus' head with his sledgehammer to allow the child to be born - Athena (goddess of wisdom) eventually was born from the temporarily shattered skull, emerging full-grown and clad in armour wielding a spear.
I guess this one actually counts - Hephaestus shattered his skull.

"Work X is like work Y" is poor form: we don't get the details for the different works. Please write these as individual examples with more info about who-what-why-head-go-pop. Or maybe it's just better to let the sister trope Explosive Leash cover them — that trope is more to the point for these works.

See How to Write an Example.

What about "Young Justice" in the episode "Schooled"? When Amazo choose the wrong time to become solid again (by trading his phantasm power from Martian Manhunter for Superman's strength/near-invulnerability), Superboy's arm is where Amazo's head reforms. Cue Amazo's head A-sploding or more simply "going BOOM." Or was that Tele-fragging? I don't know...

There shouldn't be an apostrophe in the title. "Your Head A Splode" is exactly how it appears in the Trope Namer.
