* Sweary Mary of ''{{Viz}}'' invents a new swearword. "Fitbin" is both (we are informed) obscene, and also obscure enough to put on the front page of a comic.

* In ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', the word UsefulNotes/{{Belgium}}, is the ''most'' vulgar expletive, and properly reserved for use in Serious Screenplays, by Zaphod Beeblebrox in times of extreme stress, and on one small planet where they don't know what it means.

** In ''Discworld/GoingPostal'' Miss Maccalariat scolds Moist for his language using TWordEuphemism. The thing is, no real English profanities exist starting with the letters she calls out. The Y-word? Then again, [[TranslationConvention Morporkian isn't English.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' has something like this, where Tom Tucker mentions the "trendy new curse word -- clemen." According to the DVD commentary, SethMacFarlane jokingly said that if "clemen" ''does'' become a real-life curse word, then the scene of Tom Tucker mentioning it will have to be censored in hindsight.

* In ''{{Nodwick}}'', one issue revolves around the word "Krutz", a fictional swear word [[spoiler:, intentionally created by a cabal of villains hoping to resurrect a powerful warlord,]] that ends up being a one-issue BerserkButton to Piffany. It even comes with its own marketing campaign!
