* ''Very'' noticeable in fansubs for ''Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa'' (otherwise known as ''Kirby of the Stars''). The anime is based on [[Franchise/{{Kirby}} a series]] that is consistently rated low, was specifically intended for younger or inexperienced players, and most damningly of all has a cutesy pink creampuff as its main character. There is nothing in the series that would be considered inappropriate for children, aside from the occasional weirdly transparent ParentalBonus. All of this is, of course, completely ignored by the fansubs, resulting in jarring and almost surreal moments in which a cuddly Sanrio-esque character uses words like "bullshit".

*** ''The Girl Who Lived'' series has a lot more swearing. The odd thing is that this is a FixFic, so...the author apparently thought that Harry should have swore more.

* There's a sizable number of fan translators who think that any Japanese dialogue written in a rough or slangy manner must contain at least one curse word and/or crude idiom when translated into English. This isn't quite SpiceUpTheSubtitles, since it's rarely done due to lack of practice and usually the gist of the sentence is unchanged.
* In Japan, a common stereotype of American people is that they swear a lot, often for no good reason. As a result, if an American character appears in an anime, they will often say something like "goddamn" or "son of a bitch", sometimes outside of context or in a situation no actual English-speaker would ever swear in. If they don't end up talking like [[Anime/MagicalShoppingArcadeAbenobashi Mr. Kouhei]].



* Almost every fanfic based around adult or teenage characters will have at least some usage of this, most likely in an attempt to sound "realistic".
* Go to Website/FanFictionNet, set the filter to display M-rated stories only, and take your pick. After filtering all the {{lemon}}s, of course.
** Possibly ''including'' the lemons, depending on how much vulgarity is used in the [[IKEAErotica descriptions of the act.]]



* The anecdote listed above under Anime & Manga also applies here. It's not too bad in most cases, but when you're playing a FanTranslation of a Famicom/NES or Super Famicom/SNES game even such words as "damn" or "hell" can be quite jarring to see, considering most games of those periods had a Nintendo-mandated GoshDangItToHeck hovering over them, though there were a few occasions where they slipped up.



* Some YoungAdultLiterature will have swearing thrown in, since the main characters will be usually teenagers or young adults, which are pretty foulmouthed in RealLife. Notable examples are Creator/JohnGreen's young adult novels, which will have characters dropping profanity frequently.



* Quite a few internet humor websites. Fortunately, many such sites manage to stay funny regardless.

Then along come the FanFic writers, and suddenly everyone's dropping {{Cluster F Bomb}}s left, right and center. There seems to be this idea that you have to have this in an R-rated story. No matter that it's already got more than enough [[PornWithoutPlot sex]] and [[DarkFic violence]] to justify the R, the Obligatory Swearing is [[ShapedLikeItself obligatory]]. Also happens to some extent in [=PG13=]-rated fics. FridgeLogic ensues when characters swear more strongly than they do in canon in situations less upsetting than they've actually been through, and seeing ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'', ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'', or [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic a pony]] dropping a Cluster F-Bomb is nothing if not jarring. Of course, FridgeLogic goes the other way with works involving teenage characters, who don't swear in canon, even when in massive pain: Even Creator/QuentinTarantino movies are cleaner than five minutes of overhead conversation in the average school cafeteria.

* Many fansubs of ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' seem to love doing this with [[TheHero Ash]] for whatever reason, possibly due to his rough manner of speech; resulting in the bizarre sight of the 10-year-old IncorruptiblePurePureness of a AllLovingHero shooting off ClusterFBomb[=s=].
