* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5942075/37/Reluctant-Hero Reluctant Hero]]'', Aang freaks out after throwing a pirate off a cliff and asks him to wave his arms to show he's alive. [[FlippingTheBird The pirate does something else entirely]].
--> '''Aang:''' Well, that wasn't a very nice hand gesture.

* A surprising version in the profanity-laden ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'': early in "Rap Battle #1", Jefferson tells Hamilton that "if the shoe fits, wear it". The final line of Hamilton's response is "turn around, bend over - I'll show you wear my shoe fits!". Presumably this was done to make the rhyme work, as Hamilton has had no qualms cursing before or after that moment.

* In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'', Rocket translate's Groot's "I am Groot" as "Welcome to the frickin' Guardians of the Galaxy!" but adds, "...Only he didn't use 'frickin'.'" He then admonishes Groot for language.

* In ''Literature/KingdomKeepers'', Maybeck swears rather frequently. However, it is never stated what he says. For example, in book 2 (I think), he says "Close the freaking door!" (or something to that effect). The very next sentence is "Only he didn't say freaking." They do this frequently. Or they simply say "Maybeck said a word that would have gotten him kicked out of class if he had been in school."

* The reason that all of the orcs in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' spoke like British cadets instead of degenerate monstrous pillagers is that, as the appendix put it, their ''actual'' speech was too offensive to bother writing. (As he said, it was "only printable in the higher and artistically more advanced forms of literature".)
** As proof of this, we have the one line of genuine orc speech Tolkien ever actually published. Even the approximate translation still doesn't sound very nice:

* ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' has an InUniverse discussion board for the crew of the ''[[CoolStarship Tempest]]''. One message on it:
-->'''[[MrFixit Gil]]:''' No need to panic about the drive core noise this morning. Just a stress test. There's nothing wrong with an 0500 wake-up call.\\
'''Liam:''' [Profanity Deleted By [=InfoBoard=] [[ArtificialIntelligence VI]]--You're Welcome!]\\
'''Liam:''' Adjectived verbing nouns, Gil!\\
'''Cora:''' Liam, if the VI learns to censor ALL language, I'm making you reprogram it.\\
'''[[TokenNonhuman Jaal]]:''' Educational, in a way.

* The VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing Item-of-the-Month "My Own Pen Pal kit" finds you an (NPC) penpal, who sends you a rather MadLibs-like letter with an item attached to it each day. One of the sentences that might be generated is about a teacher who told him that if you ignore a bully, he'll leave you alone, and that his dad says it's "a crock of bullcrap (except he didn't say bullcrap, he said a bad word)".

-->'''NPC''': Director Fury told me specifically to 'get these snakes off this gosh-darned Helicarrier'. I may be paraphrasing slightly.

** Ebling Mis from ''Foundation and Empire'' frequently says "Unprintable". This is assumed to be an example of the trope, but it is kind of funny when one thinks he's actually saying unprintable. He is described as being foulmouthed though.
