** Big Jim Rennie from ''Literature/UnderTheDome'' doesn't like to swear. His favorite substitute for a swear word would be "cotton-picking" (as in "this cotton-picking short-order cook"), but he's also fond of using "rhymes-with-witch" instead of "bitch" or "clustermug" instead of "clusterfuck". Rennie can't stand it, when people swear in his presence, either.

%%* A staple of Ralph E. Hayes comics (''Webcomic/NipAndTuck'', ''GoblinHollow''). ''Webcomic/TalesOfTheQuestor'' and its SpinOff ''Webcomic/QuentynQuinnSpaceRanger'' tend to use {{Unusual Euphemism}}s instead.

** In-universe, those who know his secret identity general attributed this to his upbringing (in small-town middle America). It's not just his language that's mild compared to some of his colleagues, either; one of his in-universe nicknames is "the Big Blue Boy Scout". If you've made Superman mad enough to start actually ''swearing'' at you, you are '''in trouble'''.
** His (formerly alternate company) expy Captain Marvel is, if anything, even milder than Supes himself under most writers, justified in that the Big Red Cheese's alter ego is a kid several years too young to drive.

** In the episode "Ghostfacers," stronger profanity is bleeped out reality tv-style, and several of the bleeped words are clearly "fuck," which the brothers don't use in the show due to network rules. In fact, under the bleeps, there's a whole lot more profanity than usual for this show...which begs the question--wouldn't two men raised on the road by their ex-Marine father swear more than they do?
** Sam and Dean generally use the word "freaking" where people in RealLife would use "fucking," due to aforementioned network rules.

* ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'': While the Emperor is certainly not shy about [[SirSwearsALot cursing up a storm under normal circumstances]], the vox-hailer equipment used for podcasts has a built-in censor that bleeps out anything rude with an [[SensoryAbuse excessively loud truck horn]]. Thus, to keep up his swearing streak and vent his anger he needs to resort to this instead, which amuses both his Custodians and [[spoiler:Rogal Dorn]].

* Literature/MartinFierro: The protagonist deliberately replaces his Spanish real world swear words when he uses them, justified because he is singing a poem, something he deems important, and because the author wanted his book to be read by all ages.

** Butters says "gosh dang it to heck". When he throws his baseball cap to the ground in frustration, he exclaims, "Son of a biscuit!" This tendency makes it all the more hilarious when he becomes a pimp and starts throwing around "bitches" and "hoes", though to be fair, he doesn't seem to understand what those words mean. "All About Mormons" contains a more subtle example where Butters refers to Gary, the new kid, as a peckerface, though quiet and in the background. He also tells the rest of the gang to "suck on [his] weiner" in "The Tale of Scrotie [=McBoogerBalls=]"; the entire second book Butters made in the episode is filled with them.
