* This trope is a running joke in the WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fandom. The Princesses Celestia and Luna are ancient, possibly immortal beings who directly control the sun and the moon and regularly and visibly wield enormous magical power, so the general [[Main/{{Fanon}} fan assumption]] is that the standard swear among residents of Equestria is something along the lines of "Oh my Celestia" or "for Luna's sake!" However, these beings of unfathomable power [[Main/{{Canon}} canonically]] are not above randomly visiting ponies for weddings, parties, festivals, and the like, which leads directly to this trope.

Another term for those that wish to subvert the term with the sisters use something like "What in the name of Faust" or "Sweet mother of Faust!"

* [[TheEmperor Yhwach]] of Manga/{{Bleach}}. It's right there in his name: When he was just born, the people considered him a holy child due to the miracles he could perform. The first thing he ever heard was of them changing "Yahweh", one of the ancient Hebrew names for God. He took that name for himself, and tweaked it just a had to promote his own identity, thus resulting in Yhwach.
