12->''"Curse you, random explosions!"''
13-->-- ''WebVideo/RanmaOneHalfTheAbridgedChronicles''
15* ''Fanfic/AllGuardsmenParty'': This is the usual stock in trade of Twitch, the squad's demo specialist. The Guardsmen are very fond of this as a means of solving problems, [[spoiler:including up to the occasional orbital strike.]]
16-->While the nerds babbled about how this was the greatest scientific advancement in centuries Twitch and Nubby went to find a place to plant the Nuke and blow it all up. There's probably something deep and philosophical you could say about that, but we were guardsmen. We had a really big bomb, and damned if we weren't going to use it.
17* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'':
18** Gambit, as per canon, has the power of charging up objects and making them explode, turning a pack of cards into a pack of grenades.
19** Harry Potter, [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles like his namesake]], has got a knack for PlayingWithFire and his default strategy in combat tends to be "blow everything up, then blow up the rubble to make sure". It gets to the point where Carol, one of his best friends [[spoiler: and as of chapter 46 of the sequel, his girlfriend]], notes that him and explosions go together "like peanut butter and jelly" and if they aren't, something is very wrong with the universe.
20* A New Dawn Short Story has Robin Garrett, a serial killer teen whose power involves touching things and alchemically creating bombs. He mostly uses this to take revenge on bullies, right wing politicians, and many others.
21* Frequently happens to [[BunglingInventor Bungling Inventors]] [[TheSmartGuy Sherman]] and [[MadScientist Dr. Brainstorm]] in ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries''.
22* The Guild of Assassins on the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' teaches a module in Applied Exothermic Alchemy. Unlike the Guild of Alchemists, whose explosions are usually random, unexpected and uncontrolled, the Assassins know a little more about crucial components like fuses and reliable chemical reactions. The modern guild even does bomb disposal and controlled detonations. Go to the Discworld tales of Creator/AAPessimal for more.
23* In ''FanFic/DreamingOfSunshine'' it's a [[NoodleIncident running gag]] that Shikako is extremely fond of explosives.
24-->I nodded to myself and finished the tag I was drawing. Then stared at the huge pile that had materialised while I had been thinking.
25-->"Got a little carried away?" Shikamaru asked dryly.
26-->"Don't be silly," I said airily. "There's no such thing as too much explosives." Granted, explosive tags were usually fairly expensive and most ninja never used more than one or two per fight. But since I made my own, that didn't matter to me.
27-->"Just what are you planning to blow up?" he asked. "Because I need to know when to make sure I have an alibi."
28* Some characters caught up in ''FanFic/TheInfiniteLoops'' will express their distaste with canon events... rather dramatically.
29** The Looping version of [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Trixie Lulamoon]], on the other hand, just plain has a an ongoing love affair with explosives, and has crashed many Loops by messing around with massive amounts of explosives.
30* ''Fanfic/MyBravePonyStarfleetMagic'':
31** To the point that every time something blows up, the author uses onomatopoeia like Kabloom and Bang.
32** Dyno and Mite like causing this.
33* ''Fanfic/TheNextFrontier'', being a ''VideoGame/KerbalSpaceProgram'' fanfic, naturally has several.
34* ''Fanfic/APeacefulAfterlife'': Kira is the main protagonist after all. The fact that his bombs can kill demons by completely destroying them makes him one of the most dangerous beings in hell.
35* In ''Fanfic/PointOfSuccession'', when [[Manga/DeathNote Light and Matt]] invade [[BigBad Beyond Birthday's]] villain lair. As expected, it's booby trapped... with explosives. A ''lot'' of explosives.
36* In one of the host segments for the [=MST=] treatment of ''FanFic/TomSwiftAndHisWarTank,'' [[RuleOfFunny Crow destroys Tom's airfield as revenge for ditching him in a biplane over the no-fly zone in southern Iraq.]]
37* Sunset's combat strategy in ''Fanfic/TheWitchOfTheEverfree'' tends to be pretty heavy on explosions. Special credit goes to her fight with [[spoiler:Nightmare Moon]], which ends up leveling the upper half of Ponyville's town hall.
