* The final dungeon of ''VideoGame/RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy'' consists of the main character traveling through time, and along the way there are "time tourists", astral projections of people who just want to vid the sights. Voxing with the sightseeing teeps is a totally turvy experience. (Explanation just in case (spoilered in case anyone wants to figure it out for themselves): [[spoiler: "Vid", to see, from "video"; "Vox", to speak, directly from Latin; "Teep", person, unknown origin (anyone know this one?); "Turvy", strange or wild, from phrase "topsy-turvy". There are others I didn't use - "Wayback" (noun), a point in time prior to one's current position or "Wayback" (verb), to move backwards in time. "Drek" and "Scrug", expletives; and so on...)]] Yes, I realize I probably sounded like a total idiot with that example. And I probably got some of them wrong...

** ''SpiderManShatteredDimensions'' and ''VideoGame/SpiderManEdgeOfTime'' both got a lot of mileage out of this one. Spidey even lampshades it in the latter game.

** [[ScottWesterfeld The same author]] also uses a lots of Future-past slang in {{Leviathan}}, mostly to cover up swearing by the air force. Words like clart and bum-rag are used often.

* The uses of it in Marvel's 2099 stories is parodied in ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall'' with 2090's Kid's totally Kleenex slang! Sewing machine!

* In an interesting past-slang example, the TabletopGame/{{Planescape setting}} for ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' (And the ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'' PC game) had Planar Cant, largely derived from old English thieves' jargon and Cockney rhyming slang. There's a whole sodding dictionary of it [[http://mimir.net/cant/cant2.html here.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TerraIgnota'':
** The Utopians use slang that sounds like it's been taken straight out of a sci-fi story instead of an actual unique language like the other Hives use. Fitting, since they're basically the world's speculative fiction nerds organized into a nation. Mycroft's favorite is "superprosthesis" for exceptionally useful tools.
** Society in general has developed a line of slang words surrounding their revised idea of a family unit, the bash', which does not consist of related/married people anymore, but of friends/like-minded individuals who set up their own households and rear any children they might have together. This has produced words like ba'sibs and ba'pas (siblings and parents, respectively), all based on the japanese word for 'home', [[JapanTakesOverTheWorld i-basho]].

* The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' has a few of these such as "Ghoul" (humans mutated from excessive radiation) and "[[VideoGame/Fallout4 scavver]]" (short for "scavenger", a term for people who loot Pre-War buildings). "Scavanger" and it's Boston shortening are seen as derogatory so the term "Prospector" is the more polite term.
