** It's implied in ''ComicBook/TheRoyalSketchbook'' that Twilight called out [[WrongNameOutburst "Celestia"]] during sex with her then-girlfriend and eventual wife Luna. Luna, being Celestia's sister, didn't take it lightly. It's mentioned that the fight almost wrecked their relationship.

** Meanwhile, a growing trend exists for Portuguese atheists to replace "Deus" (God) in exclamations with "Zeus", since they sound almost alike. However, unlike most examples of this, it is not really to repudiate Judeo-Christian religion, but to observe the "not speaking His name in vain" rule[[note]]Though nobody will chastise you for exclaiming "Oh my God!", it's more just a self-inflicted rule.[[/note]]. Note also how this only applies to the Judeo-christian God (see the "oxalá" example below).

Also this is ostensibly pointless since both "Deus" and "Zeus" are cognate words derived from the TopGod [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyeus of the Proto-Indo-Europeans]].

Basically TruthInTelevision: although "Oh My Gods" isn't realistic, just plain "Gods!" does occur in Greek and Roman literature as an exclamation, although admittedly the emphasis is a little different (the speaker will usually address the gods with an appeal for help or an incredulous "Do you see this?"), and phrases like "[[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe ye gods]]" (and its minced-oath version "egad") or "by the gods" are equally common. (Also common was the singular "God", which might mean either the chief god of the pantheon, or whatever god the speaker happened to be particularly devoted to.) Even more vulgar constructions have been found as well; a popular epithet found carved into walls by Roman hooligans is "By Juno's twat!" It's not uncommon in modern times, either; depending on what circles you travel in.

** Lucius (and possibly Draco as well) has occasionally used "Good Lord". Usually seems to be in conjunction with insulting the Weasleys. It may be theorized that this is a leftover from some Ye Olden Times, when the wizards shared the same faith as Muggles; then it would explain why [[OlderIsBetter purebloods would still be saying that]].

* The Founder of ''Webcomic/SleeplessDomain's'' city seems to have a level of deification among its citizens. When Heartful Punch discovered how InnocentlyInsensitive she had been to Undine the night before, she exclaimed "Oh, Great Founder" in the tone of someone saying MyGodWhatHaveIDone. Vedika later refers to "Founder Worshippers" who believe the dreams that grant Magical Girls their powers is a form of contact by the Founder. At the same time, there is at least one character, Mark, who mutters "Jesus..." upon meeting Undine and realizing she's the Magical Girl who recently lost her team, suggesting it's not universal.

** At least once a character (Baron Wulfenbach) uses "Gotterdammerung" in a manner similar to "God damn it". In German "Götterdämmerung" refers to the "Twilight of the Gods", i.e. Ragnarok from Norse myth (usually via Wagner), and isn't usually used as a swear word at all. Appropriating it as an expletive ''could'' pretty definitely be considered blasphemous to people believing in whatever gods are being referred to, though given [[EmperorScientist who uses it]] that wouldn't be altogether a surprise. Probably used here because it [[IThoughtItMeant sounds like]] "God damn it."

* ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' fanfics use "goddess" due to the fact the characters worship the Harvest Goddess (and occasionally the Harvest Lord). This became AscendedFanon in the Natsume titles, but the original Marvelous ones never use it.
