* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' fanfics have characters say "Oh my Dust" in reference to the series' AppliedPhlebotinum, or "Oh my Oum", in reference to the series' creator Creator/MontyOum. The latter became especially common after his death in order to pay tribute to him.

* Many ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' fanfics have characters exclaiming the names of the game's goddesses at times (or "Hylia" if it's during ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword''), though it's so cut and paste that it just descends into {{Narm}}.

Some of this seems to been {{ascended|Fanon}} in games following ''Skyward Sword'', as seen below.



*** FanFic/TheSurprisingAdventuresOfAGlaceonInUnova is a particularly egregious example, with a wide variety of [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal often-alliterative]] curses relating [[UnusualEuphemism (sort of)]] to various legendary pokemon being made, such as [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Palkia's Plectrum]], [[UnusualEuphemism Mew's Splaunch]] and [[CurseCutShort Darkrai's saggy left-]], among others. The author was informed that these often detracted from the drama of an otherwise-serious scene, leading to the use of more 'normal' swears later on.

* ZigZagged in ''VideoGame/TelepathTactics''. Most characters tend to use "Crucius" in places where "Jesus Christ" would be appropriate, though they'll also use "oh my god" and such. It's a bit unclear what the significance of this is. [[LizardFolk Lissit]] like to use "omisigah", which, according to the manual, means something along the lines of "I am cursed by my ancestors".

* In the Flash short ''Bad Guys 4: Go to Hell'', one of the Bad Guys leaves Hell to go to Heaven (which is apparently right next door to Hell) only to find that the Blue Shirted guy killed God last week and took over Heaven and now has everybody doing hard labor (To quote the Blue Shirt guy: "Life ain't fair kid. And neither is death.") When the Bad Guys figure that the treatment in Hell (getting hot pokers up your ass) is better and leave Heaven to go back to Hell, the Blue Shirt guy utters "Me Dammit!".

* In ''ComicBook/RatQueens'' characters often swear by using the name "Bilford Bogin". It's implied that this is considered especially vulgar, even compared to the Rat Queen's [[ClusterFBomb usual vocabulary]].

* In ''Franchise/SupermanAndMan'' fic, Franchise/{{Superman}} swaps bodies with a real world person. When he lets slip a Kryptonianís swearword, it prompts him a bemused stare from his host's wife.

-->"Holy sun. Of Krypton," he sighed.\\
Dana looked at him. "Why'd you say that, Chris? Sure, he came from Krypton, but did you really think he was a Christ figure?"\\
"No," he said, with effort. "Sun. Star. On Krypton. Some saw. As God symbol."\\
"Was that in the comic books?"\\
Speaking as much as he did tired him. The machine inflated, deflated his lungs.\\
"Yes," he said. "In comic. Books."

* In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', many outworlders swear this way, such as the Terrible Trio (whose gods are apparently the members and manager of [[{{Metalocalypse}} Dethklok)]]. Conversely, the G'heddi'onians don't mention gods but say such things as "By all that's good," or "by all that's evil."

** In ''Fanfic/MLPTimeLoops'', Celestia asks Twilight (and by extension everyone else) to stop this, since the mechanics of the setting means that she's not nearly as superior to everyone else as she seems. When asked what they should swear on instead, she suggests trees. [[RunningGag It takes]].

* The framing device of ''FanFic/TheInfiniteLoops'' involves Yggdrasil, the great world tree super computer, being broken for some reason. As such, characters tend to use tree-based swears: "Twigs and branches" as an emphasizing term, "Oh oak/ash/birch!" replacing Oh My God, "Chlorophyll" as a casual cuss... some of the more educated get inventive with phrases like "By the rotting eternities!" or "Yggdrasil's gnarled branches!" This trend started in the ''Fanfic/MLPTimeLoops'' and spread like wildfire; a minor joke is characters occasionally [[RageAgainstTheHeavens taking up deforestation.]]
