* ''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!

* In the US version of ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'', the '''SilentProtagonist''' [[PrecisionFStrike curses this way]] when [[spoiler:Alex]] appears in the final dungeon, his only actual line in the game. Presumably a {{Woolseyism}}, as it's absent in both the Japanese version and the European version.
