* This is one of 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 longer than any actual swear words. This was not a game that was otherwise entirely clean - the word 'shit' is used several times uncensored.

* [[BigGood Chip]] in ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' speaks this way if fed a [[DoesNotLikeSpam canned horror]] which is quite jarring considering that [[spoiler: he's Light Gaia, the representation of all things pure and good]]. Hilariously lampshaded by [[http://www.deviantart.com/art/Scumbag-Chip-576381351 this image]].

* In ''Fullmetal Alchemist and the Broken Angel'', most of Ed's swearing is left in except for one instance where Armony falls on him. Ed demands an apology and when Armony decides to be a smartass about it, Ed is ''not'' amused.

* ''ComicBook/{{Nextwave}}'' uses skull and crossbone symbols. This has spread across the MarvelUniverse lately. One ''Nextwave'' character was ''named'' "Captain ☠☠☠☠", until ComicBook/CaptainAmerica washed his mouth out with soap.
** Even though Nextwave is a decade old, there's still a remarkable consistency in the use of ☠☠☠☠ swearing. It pretty much only appears in comics that aspire to match Nextwave's particular strain of insane comedy or that are directly referencing the series.

* A story of ''ComicBook/{{Iznogoud}}'' had him asking Wa'at Alahf for a rope, when he was down a cliff. Wa'at dropped the entire length of rope. Iznogoud began cursing, with bombs, bones, axes etc. Then a lot of these items began falling from above, seemingly dropped by Wa'at who thought Iznogoud was asking for them.

** In "The Jigsaw Turk", Iznogoud inadvertently gives an enterpreneur the idea to set up a beach resort in the middle of the desert where he is trying to put together a 10,000 piece jigsaw, and soon the area is as packed as the beaches of the Côte d'Azur during peak holiday season. When one boy's wayward beach ball bounces off another man's stomach, the boy's father gets involved, and we get this gem:
--->'''Beachgoer:''' MAYBE YOU SHOULD KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR BRAT!\\
'''Boy's Father:''' D'YOU KNOW WHAT MY BRAT SAYS TO YOU?\\
'''Boy:''' ''[cheerfully]'' He says #@%!\\
'''Boy's Father:''' ''[backhanding his son]'' WASH YOUR MOUTH, YOU!
