Added DiffLines:

* Asuka's TheReasonYouSuckSpeech in ''Fanfic/NeonMetathesisEvangelion'' makes it clear she's using the term "Sir" they way most people would use "Dumbass" or "Bastard". Understandable considering she's just been criticized for "an embarrassing victory" and asks if he'd prefer "an aesthetically pleasing defeat".

* A recent episode of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' has Rufus, one of the boys' allies, mutter, "I'm too old for this." [[Film/LethalWeapon Four guesses]] as to what everyone heard at the end of the sentence...
** Plus, he kinda looks like Creator/DannyGlover.

* The way Jerry Series/{{Seinfeld}} always greets his [[SitcomArchNemesis arch-rival]] Newman, one could easily substitute any swear word in for his name.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'', Wolverine infiltrates an anti-mutant hate group, the Friends of Humanity, by posing as a trashy, mutant-hating bigot. He plays the role to the letter, down to growling "''mutant''" like a swear word (or, more realistically, a racial/ethnic slur).

* In ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', Vlad Masters uses food items such as "fudge buckets", "butter biscuits", "cheese logs", "butter brickle", etc. All of which practically mean OhCrap.

** ''Discworld/NightWatch'' has a Sergeant who doesn't swear for religious reasons, so uses this trope to compensate. At one point he calls a bunch of militia recruits "You sons of mothers!".

* Inverted in ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' by Scary Terry, an {{Expy}} of [[Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]] who seriously overuses ThisIsForEmphasisBitch. When Rick and Morty help him with ''his'' recurring nightmares, he manages to make the word "bitch" sound like sincere thanks.

Compare StealthInsult, PrecisionFStrike. Not to be confused with NarrativeProfanityFilter, where a character really does swear--it just doesn't appear directly in the text, or with {{Mondegreen}}, which is when a character doesn't swear, but a word they say sounds like a swear word.
