Technically it's not a nuclear explosion; it is a dirty bomb, which utilizes conventional explosives (nowhere near as powerful as nuclear weapons) to spread nuclear material. Meaning structures are left intact, but the resulting radiation is lethal. And the player has agency on whether to use the dirty bomb or not; it will not be used without their consent. Still, it's a large explosion involving nuclear material, so it might count as a nuclear explosion in spirit?

Not nuclear, but a bomb is set off in one of the later chapters.

Yes, and the fallout is what created the land of Ooo. It's more noticeable in the Simon and Marcy episodes.

There is a fantasy equivalent of a nuclear bomb, and several characters die of the fantasy equivalent of radiation poisoning, two of them on screen.

A nuclear device is detonated underwater so Godzilla can feed off the radiation and regain his strength. An earlier scene depicts a fictional weapon of mass destruction called the Oxygen Destroyer being detonated just outside Mexico City.
