* Prior to the advent of FOX's animated cartoons particularly, ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' swearing in cartoons was very rare. For instance, during TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, whenever a character expressed disgust or contempt for someone or a given situation, they would utter something nonsensical, such as "Rackin-frackin' rickin'-rackin' ... " and so forth.

Correcting a few uses of "subverted" and some punctuation/capitalization, since I'm so damn...I mean, darn nitpicky like that.
* ''Film/GalaxyQuest'': When Jason turns around and realizes what Gorignak is, "Oh Darn." His mild language is probably due to years of having to tone it down for the TV show in the first place.

** It's subverted in a few scenes, like when Biff chases Marty through Hill Valley in [[Film/BackToTheFuture Part 1]]:

* In ''Film/MysteryMen'' the Blue Rajah uses cutlery-related speech, which thereby extends to swearing like "What the fork?" It is [[RuleOfFunny done for laughs]]: he also uses [[SubvertedTrope genuine curses]] more than any other character in the movie. For example, at one point he quite audibly mutters "Oh, shit." Plus cases of distinctly British cursing, like "bugger all." That could be a case of DidNotDoTheBloodyResearch because the Blue Rajah is very british (You just have to know your history.)

** In-show, feck is treated like "fuck" would be in the real world. When Ted goes on a picnic he meets an angry couple whose spot he has taken. Their tirade is along the lines of 'fup you, you fupping baxtard. This is our fupping spot'. When Ted looks at the couple in bafflement the man points to a sign at the edge of the picnic area saying 'No swearing'. Since the word feck was displayed on a billboard and complained about, there was an inquiry into the word and it was officially deemed not to be a swearword in early December 2008. ** LampshadeHanging when Mrs Doyle is shocked by a book she's reading: "'Feck this!' and 'Feck that!' 'You big hairy arse!' Feirce stuff. And the F-word, Father, the ''bad'' F-word. Worse than feck. You know the one I mean. F you, F your wife. I'll stick this F-ing pitchfork up your hole."

** Linkara of ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall''. Subverted in that he ''does'' curse, he just doesn't use the "more colorful four letter words" to prove that he doesn't need them to be funny. You can hear him curse a few times in Behind The Scenes videos. This is saying something compared to nearly all of his colleagues.

** The words "damn" and "hell" are treated as fairly shocking. [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny When the show debuted, "damn" and "hell" ''were'' shocking in a cartoon, at least in America, as was the word "butt".]] The trope has been fading in the series's more recent episodes, most likely to keep in line with other adult cartoons, such as ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. Definitely long since subverted. Words like "bastard", "pissed", and "bitch" have been used occasionally for well over a decade in the show now. Probably because of the show's ever growing immunity to [[ExecutiveMeddling tampering]]; at this point, the creators can do whatever they like in the show and get away with it. ** An early episode has Bart reprimanded for saying 'Hell' in the context of a Sunday School lesson.

* Most video game Let's Players tend to curse a lot and make jokes utilizing said curse words to garner laughs, views and subscribers. However there are a growing number of Let's Players who prefer to keep their videos family friendly and try hard not to curse and the rare times they do, they usually bleep it out, chocobo wark it out, or just omit it in favor of silence. Some examples would be LetsPlay/Chuggaaconroy, LetsPlay/RoahmMythril, LetsPlay/Markiplier, LetsPlay/JoshJepson, LetsPlay/DeceasedCrab, and LetsPlay/RetroChallengeGamer.

The use of "[[Myth/ClassicalMythology Hades]]" as an old-fashioned synonym for "hell" is theologically correct, in the right context, [[YouKeepUsingThatWord but is commonly misused]] in any context in which "hell" would work. Using [[EveryoneHatesHades Hades as Satan]] is never correct though. See also TheUnderworld for other terms that may be substituted in this manner in works based on other theological settings. In the UK "sod" and "bugger" are mildly obscene ([[DidNotDoTheBloodyResearch not that most people across the pond know this]]) but permissible pre-{{Watershed}} -- about as bad as to "hell" or "damn". (Not realizing that "bugger" is a swearword in the UK is ''not'' this trope, but [[DidNotDoTheBloodyResearch something else entirely]].)[[note]]In fact, to "bugger" someone is to commit "buggery", that is, either sodomy or bestiality. "Sod" is derived from "sodomite", and dressing it up as "Son Of Devil" is another layer of the trope in action. Part of the ValuesDissonance over "bugger" is a case of convergent evolution: in the southern US "bugger" evolved as a Gosh Dang It To Heck for calling someone a "booger"- the two sound ''nearly'' identical in a southern accent. [[/note]] The Spanish-speaking countries have a more contrived example of this: In Mexico and the rest of Latin America, albeit not universally, they have no problems with using the Spanish equivalents of ''damn'' or ''hell'', since they're considered at worst childish insults, despite those countries have a mostly conservative Catholic population, while more stronger profanities are censored in TV transmissions, albeit this is starting to change. On the other hand, Spaniard media, both originally-made and dubbed, have ''no problems'' with using even ''stronger profanities'' normally censored in Latin America, due to historical reasons since the death of Francisco Franco, who previously banned the use of profanity in Spaniard media during his rule. Also, bear in mind that something doesn't need swearing to be dramatic, nor does not swearing make something undramatic. In most cases, they are used for emphasis. Some characters just ''don't'' swear and have their clean tongue as a personality trait. Please also note that a character not swearing in a casual undramatic conversation does ''not'' count as this trope, unless said characters are characters who sound naturally off when censoring their swearing. Saying "heck" and "darn" and "blast" to casual everyday things, such as casually asking "what the heck is the time?", do not count as examples. This is for times at which a character is in a situation in which you would expect someone to let out a cuss, even if they're usually clean-tongued in their normal conversations. Please take into consideration when listing real life examples that there is nothing wrong with not swearing. On the same hand, there is nothing wrong ''with'' swearing.
