A Minecart with TNT is used to blow up blocks in moderation. When it explodes, it will not destroy any rails beneath it as well as any blocks that the rails are on. They will blow up if they go over an active Activator Rail, with an explosion delay of 4 seconds; however, they can also be detonated by: shooting flaming arrows or other fire sources at them, while it is moving and gets attacked, it falls off of high ground, or it takes a sharp turn next to a block. Minecarts with TNT are often banned from servers since it is a good way for griefers to destroy mines or roads with rails.

- The speed of a Minecart with TNT determines its explosion size as well as the speed of the flaming arrow that hits it (if a flaming arrow is used to detonate it).
