** Orcs are also prone of throwing snarling nonsense words like "garn" or "nar" in their speech, in places where you'd be likely to hear soldiers throw in expletives.

* ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' tends to call people who annoys her "snagriff" or "babootch". In ''[[ComicBook/Supergirl2005 Supergirl (Volume 5)]]'' issue #34, after Catherine Grant has published a smear piece on her:
-->'''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}:''' Cat Grant is a total snagriff.\\
'''Franchise/{{Superman}}:''' Yes, she is.

** On ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', Worf occasionally uses Klingon curse words. Also, in {{Fanon}}, Picard frequently swears in French (something he actually did on-screen, if only rarely).
*** Combining the two, during a tense on-screen moment on a Klingon planet, the governor of this planet accuses Picard of speaking "the lies of a ''taHqeq''" (He claims to have confiscated Federation weapons used by separatists—they turn out to be Romulan replicas), which prompts Picard to [[InsultBackfire get right up in his face and unload a barrage of unintelligible but vile-sounding Klingon back at him]]... leaving the dignitary (favourably) impressed enough to comment: "You swear well, Picard. You must have Klingon blood in your veins."

* Made into a running joke in Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG. Given that it was based on [[Toys/LEGODinoAttack a LEGO line]] [[BZPower on a family friendly board]], actual curses were out of the question. At fist players just got around it by using mundane variants (i.e. "darn") but later made a running joke out of creating curse words that would seem "foul" to {{LEGO}} people, many of which were inside jokes. For instance:

* A fairly extensive vocabulary of Belter creole profanity was created for ''Series/TheExpanse'', most of it based on existing words from various languages used in new ways. Examples include pasheng (the f word), sabakawala (asshole), dzhemang (dickwad), and kaka felota (which pretty much translates as what it sounds like and is a curse that only people who spend a lot of time in zero G would come up with).
