Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/TheNewAdventuresOfInvaderZim'', the alien characters often drop phrases from their native language into dialogue (usually swears).

* In the PoulAnderson/GordonDickson Hoka story "Undiplomatic Immunity", "Garrasht!" is a swear word in Worbenite. This later enables the hero to unmask a surgically-altered Worbenit spy.

* Tim Burton's ''Film/AliceInWonderland'' features Underlandish curse words. At one point the White Rabbit expresses his disgust at the actions of "real" animals who do their "shukum" in public.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'': Characters use the multipurpose swear "numph." It's been used as a mild expy for "noob" ("Quit acting like a numph.") or a less-mild expy for "screwed" - or more profane, depending on the speaker. ("I really numphed this up, didn't I?")

* In ''GuildWars'', the only Asuran word heard so far has been "bookah," which is stated to mean a non-Asura. Given its general usage (and its derivation from a clumsy, stupid creature in Asuran folklore), however, it's really something of a racial slur.

*** Or the phrase itself is fairly mundane but Stitch used some sort of inflection that is obvious in-universe but is undetectable to we the viewers that renders the phrase obscene.

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' uses "slag" as a swear word, this time with Bumblebee as the worst offender. Note that the Dinobot Slag was renamed "Snarl" in Animated (with a bit of LampshadeHanging from Scrapper). As it's also a sexist insult in some places, later series have pretty much replaced it with "scrap" or "frag" (which were already being used anyway).

* On ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'', Captain Gantu is fond of using the oath "Oh, blitznak!" Stitch himself, when brought before the Galactic Council and asked to prove his intelligence, utters a string of words that is left untranslated from "alien" gibberish, although its profane content is clear from the shocked gasps of the hearers. Stitch's statement is so vulgar, a ''robot'' vomits. This trope probably was used to leave what Stitch said deliberately to the imagination, as there isn't much in the way of utterances left that would inspire such reactions from contemporary 21st century viewers.
** We do get a hint as to what that term meant later; the first word, "meega" appears to be a personal pronoun (like "I", "me", "my", etc.). That's still not much to work with though.

** We do get a hint as to what that the meaning of the [[{{Fictionary}} Tantalog]] term meant later; the first word, "meega" "Meega, nala kweesta!" later. "Meega" appears to be a personal pronoun (like "I", "me", "my", etc.). That's still not much ), "nala" is a statement of wanting, and "kweesta" means "to destroy". So the quote is literally, "I want to work with though.destroy!" That isn't really vulgar to us, but it is to the aliens who were dismayed at Stitch's then-destructive nature.

* [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars''. The transformers -- Rhinox in particular -- use "slag" as an epithet, which makes some kind of sense for robots, as it's the unwanted by-product of smelting.

* [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars''. The transformers -- Rhinox in particular -- use "slag" as an epithet, epithet roughly equivalent to the s-word, which makes some kind of sense for robots, as it's the unwanted by-product of smelting. One time, Rattrap even goes as far as to yell, "[[OhCrap Holy slag!]]" in a completely appropriate situation.
