* 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.

* How WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack got his name; when he arrived in the future he crash landed in the path of a giant crushing robot and had to fight his way out, impressing a trio of street punks that happened to be nearby. "Jack" is the equivalent of "dude" that they toss about, and the samurai takes it up as an alias in his battle against Aku.

* In an interesting past-slang example, the TabletopGame/{{Planescape setting}} for ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' (And the 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:

* In the Russian film ''Film/AsirisNuna'', based on Creator/SergeyLukyanenko's novel ''Today, Mom!'', the speech of the future sounds a lot like modern street slang, although even the protagonists (teenage boys from our time) have a little trouble understanding them. Strangely enough, [[CatFolk Shidla]]'s speech is far more normal than that of the humans.
