* Subverted in ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' -- in "Guide to-Bad Habits", Moze tries trash-talking he volleyball opponents in Dutch ([[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign but not really]]) to avoid getting penalized for foul language. The referee turns out to be Dutch (wearing wooden shoes in a school gym!) and penalizes her anyway.

* ''Manga/{{Genshiken}}'' had a whole slur in the anime episode where one of the American otaku compliments ogiue on her Yaoi doujinshi, in the manga the words were blurred out, but in the anime, no censorship was given since the American spoke English, leading a lot of viewers to a very sudden 'when Chihiro spooged all over his glasses it was so hot! And then he started to butt fuck him and-" more or less.

* In the 2005 game ''VideoGame/TheWarriors'' (based, of course, on the 1970s cult classic film), while the New York "tough-guy" characters cuss a blue streak anyway (just as in the movie), there is also some [[BilingualBonus untranslated Spanish]] when the characters take a side trip to Spanish Harlem, and some of the Puerto Rican expressions would be even ''more'' offensive than what is normally heard in the game were they to be rendered in English. Two examples are "''Me cago in tus madres''" ("I shit on your mothers") and "''puto''" (used repeatedly, and a ''very'' offensive name to call any male, since its connotation is somewhere between "bitch" and "faggot.").
** It literally means male prostitute. That being said, the word's so offensive you'll probably prefer to use synonyms when discussing male prostitution in Spanish (such as 'prostituto' or 'chapero').

* In the Japanese release of ''[=MOTHER2=]'', one skater dude in Fourside who offers you items will say "Goddam!" to you in katakana if you refuse to buy. This was predictably, though bizarrely, {{Bowdlerise}}d in the ''VideoGame/EarthBound'' localization to "Mod-boy Jerk!"

* Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov took French lessons, and her instructor told once told her to underline any words she didn't know and ask him. Reading ''Literature/LesMiserables'', at one point, she saw the word "merde (shit)", and since the tutor wasn't around she went to find her father and ask him. Cue awkwardness when the Tsar asked the tutor why she was learning that word.

Japanese media in general sometimes uses rather strong English swears in a rough context, and often uses the "giving the finger" gesture as an expression of general displeasure in works for younger audiences where it would be considered unacceptable in the U.S. and other English-speaking countries. This is often [[{{Bowdlerise}} edited into a clenched fist by the localizers]] for the latter, [[TropesAreTools and honestly, we really can't blame them.]]
