* ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG'' has Croco refer to Mario as a "persistent bugger" at one point, although it helps that [[NoExportForYou it wasn't released in Europe]] until the VirtualConsole (which changed "bugger" to "pest", anyway).

* "Kaffir" was originally just the Arabic word for "nonbeliever." In the Islamic world, it certainly isn't a ''positive'' thing to call someone, but it's more akin to the English "heathen" or "infidel" than anything else. But after Arab slave traders used it to refer to African pagans, the term eventually caught on among white people as an anti-black slur. As such, in places like UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica, it's [[http://www.cracked.com/personal-experiences-2134-5-things-i-learned-growing-up-in-neo-nazi-militia.html equivalent to the N word]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Sonic Rush|Series}} Adventure'' got a 12 rating in the UK partly because the (American) translators gave Marine the Raccoon, who speaks in an exaggerated Australian accent, a line involving the word "bugger." It still got a G rating in Australia, because Australians tend to take swearing much more in stride.
** ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic 3]]'' had a a tank-like, insectoid badnik named in the manual as [[AccidentalInnuendo Buggernaut]].

* In a subversion, the Vietnamese phrase for "go fuck yourself" is ''du manh yiu", which sounded like "[[DoomyDoomsOfDoom Doom On You]]" to American soldiers. They thought it was quite appropriate.
