* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' also employs it occasionally for comedic purposes:
** Goku at one point wonders if he's supposed to thank God, Kami, or King Kai, and later exclaims "Oh my Gami-kai."
** Krillin exclaims "Thank our green god in the Lookout!" and shortly thereafter "Oh, Great Green Goddammit!"
** Piccolo has a brilliant one, saying "Oh my other me!" at one point, since his other self is Kami, Earth's guardian deity.

* ** For that matter, nearly every ''Dragon Ball'' fanfic will have the characters swear in the name of Kami in place of God in basically every situation it would apply.

Depending on how developed the world is, it is also quite common to invoke actual gods by name, such as the Gauls in ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' saying "By Toutatis!" (well, he ''was'' an actual Gaulish god). Another common variation used by [[OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions future civilizations]] is to invoke science or scientists instead. Occasionally an AlternateHistory with a non-monotheistic major religion will use this to demonstrate how different that world is. Sometimes a PhysicalGod will reference ''themselves'' in this manner[[note]]and note that this has happened before in ''Literature/TheBible'' before, making this case OlderThanFeudalism[[/note]], with "By me!" "[[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Jesus H. Me!]]" or similar.

* There is an account of an early Christian martyr who was sentenced to death by drowning -- ''before'' she had been baptized. (At the time, Christians were unsure whether an unbaptized person could go to Heaven, no matter how faithful they were.) The legend goes that when she was thrown in the sea, Jesus appeared over her and said, "I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of Me, and of the Holy Spirit."

* In ''BoundByFlame'', the swearing is generally on par with modern speech, though any reference to "God" is changed to "Gods". This leads to the particularly amusing-sounding "godsdammit".
* ''FreedomForce'''s Mentor often utters "Suns of Shakar" and "Rings of Reznor".

* Creator/TheQuarterGuy, befitting his persona of game reviewer, did his best to avoid saying God's name in vein. So instead, being well-versed on the ''VideoGame/KidIcarus'', he used the name of the resident [[HotGod Hot Goddess]] Palutena instead. Thus, "Sweet Palutena."
