* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', every other word [[ScaryBlackMan Barret]] muttered is one of these. Particularly {{egregious}} when during some of his swears, the symbols are longer than most curses have letters (maybe he's speaking Russian ''mat'', which is famous for its ability to agglomerate profanities into long words). Unfortunately, Barret's language is a lot '''MORE TAMER''' that Cid Highwind's, who's sentences are virtually '''''PEPPERED''''' with profanities!

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', every other word [[ScaryBlackMan Barret]] muttered This is one of these. Particularly {{egregious}} when during some of his swears, the things that a lot of people remember ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' for. Usually it's Cid unleashing the grawlixes, but Barret was also prone (and Cloud uses it in one instance). In one case (when confronting Don Corneo in Wutai), Barret announces a string of symbols are longer than most curses have letters (maybe he's speaking Russian ''mat'', which is famous for its ability to agglomerate profanities into long words). Unfortunately, Barret's language is any actual swear words. This was not a lot '''MORE TAMER''' game that Cid Highwind's, who's sentences are virtually '''''PEPPERED''''' with profanities!was otherwise entirely clean - the word 'shit' is used several times uncensored.

* In the Magazine/{{MAD}} parody of ''Film/ETTheExtraterrestrial'', the main character's friends insult each other with typical insults like "butt-head," "armpit" and "nerd," and when the main character uses this kind of swearing, his mother tells him that there will not be any asterisks, dollar signs or ampersands spoken in their house.

Another character then complains that he can't take that philosophy because he can't speak in symbols.

Stripping out self demonstration
Over time, people have [[SelfDemonstratingArticle %&*#]] come up with various @$#& handy ways to insert $(^& swearing, or at least the @+)^ recognition of ^%*& swearing, without setting off the $)+$ Censor Alarms. One of the oldest and easiest #*%^ ways to do this is by $%&^ inserting random %&$#?@! symbols. This ()%$ method of &%&$ censorship has been seen in @*+^ newspaper comics from the #$%* beginning, making this trope [[OlderThanRadio Older Than #*^$ Radio]].

** Also in ''Sam and Max'', but in the Season 2 finale, Timmy Two-Teeth, a character who is constantly bleeped out due to his "terminal [[TourettesShitcockSyndrome Tourette's Syndrome]]", has personal writing lessons: For the moment, he knows how to write ampersands, number symbol and percents.
