** On a fan-translation note, [[TheHero Sigurd]]'s [[spoiler:final words]] in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemGenealogyOfTheHolyWar Genealogy of the Holy War/Seisen no Keifu]]'' have (in)famously been translated as "[[spoiler:Arvis!]] You dastard!". Naturally, this line has enjoyed abundant circulation as MemeticMutation.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' has one episode where a very agitated Harvey asks "what the ''heck'' is happening?" - which likely comes from Archie Comics being infamously protective of their wholesome brand.


Added DiffLines:

* In the FreakyFridayFlip episode of ''Series/LizzieMcGuire'', Miranda's reaction to Matt-as-Lizzie coming to school is "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis Oh. My. GOSH!!]]" - played the same way as a PrecisionFStrike.


Added DiffLines:

** There's also a Season 6 episode where Elliot decides she's going to replace 'ass' with 'kaboodle' because she now finds it too explicit.


Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'' - Zidane is prone to using 'heck' a lot in the English translation.


Added DiffLines:

* Cryssi of ''Website/DivaDirt'' got in a fantastic one in one editorial (and note that the website doesn't have a policy against swearing):

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheLastManOnEarth'' pretty much has the entire cast saying a bunch of minced oaths. A favorite among the cast, particularly Tandy, is "Oh, farts." Also, in one episode, Jason Sudeikis' character, Mike, gives Tandy what appears to be a middle finger, but it is actually the ''ring'' finger.

** ''Film/SilentMovie'': Brooks' character is clearly seen mouthing "You son of a bitch!", but the intertitle instead says, "You bad boy!"

* In ''Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'', Charlotte shrieks "Cheese and crackers!" at one point. This is well known among more prudish folk as a way of saying "Jesus Christ!" Yep. The Lord's name was taken in vain in a ''Disney movie ''.

Some words are considered acceptable in some cultures but not in others, and this may appear in G- or PG-rated contexts in one place, but generate complaint in others. For example, in the UK the word "bloody" is considered to be quite a strong swear word when used as an epithet; elsewhere it's not an issue. Also in the UK, the word "ass" is rarely used; instead, the word "arse" is used, and it's considered a mild swear. In North America, "arse" is used as a non-offensive variant of "ass" in the same context as using "heck" instead of "hell."

Contrary to popular belief, the words "damn" and "hell" are permissible in a G-rated film. For example, the 1971 movie ''Film/{{Airport}}'' had both ("Where the hell are you?" and "You've always got some damn excuse!") and it still received a G rating, though movie-rating standards have changed since then. Even some G-rated animated features, such as ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'', ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretOfNIMH'', and ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', have included mild swear words. However, it is worth noting that "Hell" can refer to [[{{Hell}} the place]] and "damn" can mean condemnation to said place, and thus are not swear words even if such concepts are a little heavy for children. "Bitch" (the official term for a female dog) and "ass" (an alternate name for a donkey) almost never get such passes, unless it is explicit and obvious that the non-swear meaning is intended.
