* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', Ace was a [[{{Badbutt}} tough teenage delinquent]] who wasn't allowed to swear. On more than one occasion she used "Gordon Bennett" as an oath, probably the '''only''' person born in the 1970s to do so unironically in fiction or real life.

Of course, if Donna's use of 'frickin' is anything to go by, the TARDIS translation matrix may include a swear filter...

* The English language ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' games are fond of using "dastard" as a stand-in for "bastard". Like the ''God of War'' example, it's meant to reflect the less-than-modern setting - all Fire Emblem games take place in [[MedievalEuropeanFantasy medieval fantasy worlds]], wherein [[MedievalStasis neither the language nor the technology seems to be capable of becoming any more modern no matter how much time passes]].

* In ''Blind Descent'', Literature/AnnaPigeon complains about wanting to swear but being too uncomfortable to do so in a group of people she does not know well. One of the other rangers her to the joys of what he calls 'cowboy swearing'; letting loose yells of things like "Goddang it!" or "Consarn it!". Anna tries it and finds it a great way of letting out frustration.

* Granny Smith, matriarch of the Apple family in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', talks like this sometimes. Applejack does too when exited, often as obvious censors of common curses.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrSECcj5V7w This]] 1990s PublicServiceAnnouncement by the Independent Television Commission, the former CensorshipBureau for British commercial television, on their regulation of swearing on TV. If you didn't click, the advert shows a spoof cop show action scene with tough cops and crooks talking to each other like Creator/EnidBlyton characters.

* In ''Franchise/GodOfWar'', Ancient Grecian SociopathicHero Kratos often uses the term "By the Gods!" as an exclamation. Given that he ''is'' ancient, it's highly appropriate for his setting.
