Fatal Fireworks

Go To
Tom is going out with a bang.

Lucas: This sucker is filled with 150 grains of black powder. AKA gunpowder. Strap two of these together, and it's bigger than an M-80. Five of them, we've got ourselves a stick of dynamite.
Max: You wanna kill that thing with fireworks?

One of the wackier ways to cash in your chips, at least in cartoons. As fireworks contain many of the chemicals used in the manufacture of weaponized explosives, they can be a form of Improvised Weapon. In animated shows this tends to backfire, with the user riding a rocket into the air, where it explodes into a firework shaped like the person who was riding it. Of course, they'll still be none the worse for wear because of Amusing Injuries.

This also covers fireworks accidents, even when it doesn't necessarily result in death. It's about the use, intended or not, of fireworks to cause serious harm.

This is Truth in Television. Every year people are killed and injured by accidents involving/deliberate misuse of fireworks. There are persistent efforts to restrict fireworks to organized displays only due to danger, accidents, misuse, nuisance, noise etc. There are regulations for consumer use such as in the Canadian province of Ontario, where the sale of fireworks is restricted to a few days before the holidays Victoria Day and Canada Day respectively. Pets are often traumatized by them and many pets are lost (bolting)/killed (by running into traffic etc.) by fireworks going off.

There's a chance these fireworks can be used as Chekhov's Gun, especially if they were used earlier. See also Flare Gun, which has its own trope. Compare Fantastic Fireworks, which aren't weaponized.

  • Firework magic is featured in Blossoming Hearts, which also doubles as Chloe's specialty.
  • In The Rigel Black Chronicles, the Weasley Twins give Harry a small disk of their own invention before the first Triwizard Task, enchanted with the equivalent of several crates of fireworks.

She uses the first one to scare off a dragon, and later uses a second one in an enclosed space to cripple two attackers.

    Film — Live Action 
  • In Cold War, mercenaries recruited by the movie's Big Bad rig up some fireworks on the rooftop of a high-rise building when the Special Duties Unit storms the area during an anti-terrorist operation. The SDU was led to an ambush when the fireworks were used as improvised rocket launchers. This caused severe casualties with several SDU operators killed or heavily wounded, partially due to limbs lost in the ambush.
  • The climactic action sequence of Deep Blue Sea involves stuffing the black powder of multiple flares inside of a hollow spear shaft to create a makeshift pipe bomb and then shooting it at the remaining genetically engineered mako shark to blow it up. It is mentioned that the amount of black powder that the heroes are firing (salvaged from about five flares) is enough for 2.5 sticks of dynamite. This whole scenario was tested by the Mythbusters and it was utterly busted — the only thing that wasn't in the realm of Artistic License – Explosives is that black powder explodes.
  • Dumb and Dumber To: Harry and Lloyd decide to "prank" the (unbeknowst to them) hitman who has joined them on their journey by filling his bedroom with about a hundred firecrackers while he's sleeping. This results in him being set on fire and jumping into the nearby pool to get out of it relatively unscatched.
  • Final Destination 3: The finale takes place at a tricentennial, featuring fireworks.

  • Land of the Dead: The so-called "Sky Flowers" (as Charlie refers to them) are used to distract the zombies and turn them into sitting ducks to either be ran past or killed off effortlessly. It's a major Oh, Crap! moment late in the film when the zombies stop falling for it.
  • The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring has a comedic, non-fatal example: at Bilbo's birthday party, Pippin and Merry steal and launch one of Gandalf's firework rockets, ending up with an Ash Face.

  • Discworld
    • The Fifth Elephant: In the finale, Vimes fashions a makeshift rocket from a road flare, despite knowing that the tremendously inaccurate propulsion will make it almost impossible to hit anything. He's counting on his enemy, a werewolf, to fall prey to his own instincts and catch it.
    • In Jingo, Leonard of Quirm has designed a rocket launcher weapon, but because of having to make it in a hurry from available materials, the rocket has "A riot of coloured balls and stars" written on it.

After Mat accidentally discovers their destructive capabilities in the third book, he occasionally uses fireworks as backup weapons, until he is able to work with a disgraced Illuminator to use her expertise to make actual cannons.

    Live-Action TV

  • London's Burning had a Very Special Episode set on Guy Fawkes Night in which this trope natually played a role. Blue Watch only had to deal with one directly fireworks-related callout — most of the episode was spent putting out excessively large bonfires that were threatening to take nearby houses with them — but it was a truly spectacular one: A partygoer managed to inadvertently launch a rocket through his host's kitchen window and set the building on fire, and as if that wasn't enough property damage for one night the responding fire trucks had to nudge their way through a mass of parked cars to get to the scene. The man whose recklessness caused the fire in the first place got his brand new car's rear wing thoroughly bashed in.
  • A Scare at Bedtime has the Halloween Episode "Never Shove a Banger Up Your Arse on Halloween", where Fester and Ailin sing a charming ditty about handling fireworks responsibly, all the while interspersed with shots of twitching, blown-off hands. In addition, Ailin is mentioned to have had a firework lodged inside of him, and that it could go off anytime soon...
    Fester (noticing Ailin near the bonfire): "A-Ailin, you're awful close to the fire there, I don't think- (BOOM) Ooh, Jesus..."
  • Stranger Things: Downplayed. Although Lucas extols this trope's potential ("Strap two of these [fireworks] together, and it's bigger than an M-80"), the fireworks the characters hurl at the Mind Flayer's earthly form seem to be minor annoyances at best.
  • The Whiz Kid And The Carnival Caper: In the climax, the eponymous Whiz Kid Alvin sets off a fireworks display in order to disorient the bad guys trying to rob the carnival and to alert the police that something is going on they should investigate.

Alas, the room wasn't so empty after all! Principal Osgood Conklin emerges relatively unharmed from that minor explosion!

  • Turnip 28: St Alamei's Rocket Batteries are poorly maintained, rickety fireworks racks, guarded by troops who are themselves carrying a quantity of similar items. The Batteries don't actually do much damage - they bypass saves, but five shots with a 6+ Inaccuracy isn't going to intimidate anybody that much - but not only will the target unit take panic tokens, the nearest unit to them will as well, and the troops protecting the Batteries can calm themselves down by blowing up their own models and spread more panic tokens around when they're wiped out.
  • Warhammer:
    • The Throne of Chaos describes a Cathayan army shooting enchanted fireworks against an invading Chaos horde.
    • The Imperial Helstorm Rocket Battery was inspired in-universe by the inventor witnessing the fireworks display given by the Cathayan ambassador to the Empire, and the name comes not from its effects against enemies but the storm of profanity emmitted by an Imperial noble nearly killed by the thing.

Those who get hit by any fireball will lose the minigame and face whatever punishment Bowser decided prior to the start of the minigame.
    • Paper Mario: Color Splash: At the end, fireworks are fired during the party to celebrate Mario's saving of Prism Island.

  • Starbound has the Zephyr Spark Launcher. In a subversion of this trope, its rockets do piddly damage against enemies. This might have something to do with the fact that the fireworks in this game are merely toys and not weapons. That said though, there do exist mods that can buff its damage output into something more serviceable.
  • Sunset Overdrive:
    • The Roman Candle shoots out red and blue fireworks in rapid-fire succession. The weapon is a good crowd clearing weapon, because of small explosions made from contact.

    • For Last Life, Lizzie fills most of her hot-bar with firework-loaded crossbows and unleashes a fair amount of them onto Bdubs when he betrays her on Day 7.

    Western Animation

It fires firework-like blasts that sends Mickey up into the rafters with stagehand Goofy.

Amazingly, no one seems to have been killed in the inferno caused by the fireworks, but Donald in particular is much the worse for wear.
  • The Donald Duck short "Donald's Nephews" had this as the explanation for why Huey, Dewey, and Louie came to live with him. They had placed a firecracker under their father's chair. DuckTales (2017) would later use this as a Mythology Gag to explain how Scrooge ended up looking after Donald and Della in the episode "The First Adventure!".
  • The main plot of the Family Guy episode "Whistle While Your Wife Works" kicks off when a firecracker blows up in Peter's hand, scattering his fingers, forcing Lois to cover for him at work.

The rocket eventually crashes and explodes, leaving Mr. Go to celebrate the New Year as a Bandage Mummy.

    Real Life 
  • Explosions in fireworks factories are both pretty and terrifying.
  • In imperial China, the "hive of bees" weapon involved archers conventionally loosing an arrow to which was attached a rudimentary rocket. At first intended to greatly lengthen the effective range of arrows, this aspect was dropped when it was realised that an attached and lit rocket made the arrow wildly inaccurate. However, a hundred or more archers each firing such an enhanced arrow at the same time, in the general direction of an enemy, could exert a massive morale impact due to their noise, general unreliability and propensity to explode on impact. And being hit by an arrow is bad enough: being hit by one that then explodes would be worse.
  • On the strike of New Years Day 2016, a drunken man in the Philippines was killed by hugging a giant firecracker.
  • Flare Guns were used as weapons in World Wars I and II, with the German army even developing grenades that could be fired from the guns, and infamously in the Korean War Lieutenant Edward Mastronardi killed a Chinese soldier with a flare gun. On the civilian side they are often seen as an attractive choice for a self-defense gun, as they are loud and bright (likely to attract attention), could easily blind or ignite the clothing of an assailant, and are rather easy to obtain, but they're not guaranteed to do any of this and thus overshadowed by legitimate self-defense weapons if available, like tasers, pepper spray, or conventional firearms.


Video Example(s):


Giant Mouse of Minsk

Drawing inspiration from the story Papa Mousekawitz told Fievel, the mice build a 'secwet weapon': a machine, based on the legendary Giant Mouse of Minsk, to frighten Warren T. and his gang of cats out of America.
