* In episode 5 of ''StrikeWitches'', the [[CovertPervert seemingly innocent]] protagonist Yoshika has a very... [[HomoeroticDream interesting dream]] about her best friend in the Strike Witches. Her best friend misinterprets her trying to explain her dream as 'flying in formation with her'. Yoshika is about to correct her and say "No, 'perverted misconduct'" but quickly sees the writing on the wall and substitutes "Y... yeah, 'flying in formation'. That's it exactly." The pun being that the words Yoshika used to describe it can also be heard as 'flying in formation', and it took her a second to catch on.

* The ''{{Trigun}}'' fandom has adopted "Making Sandwiches" as their pet euphemism, after a scene where Milly and Wolfwood are discussing sharing Millie's freshly made lunch, then immediately following that up with a shirtless Wolfwood staring out a window, and an obviously naked Millie asleep in the background.

* Considered how [[LyricalNanoha Nanoha]] has to almost vaporize people with her magic, who later become [[DefeatMeansFriendship her friends]], [[MemeticMutation befriended]] has gained a completely new meaning in the fandom. As seen on the page:

* When Hinata Aki of KeroroGunso finally appeared in a swimsuit, only one word could be used to describe her... [[GagBoobs assets.]] "Dynamite!" "bakuretsu", or "explosive", is often used in this context in Japanese, and that's a fairly good English equivalent.

* ''{{Appleseed}}'': "It really gets on my tits that she wouldn't see us in person!" * ''NanaToKaoru'': "I will be short, time for a breather." The funny thing is the one usually saying this also has quite the ''[[BuxomIsBetter talent'', among other things]]. * In the series ''DearS'', the LadyKiller of the series often asks if the woman with him would like some Coffee. How the situation is (like how the girl is getting dressed in the background) strongly suggest this is a euphemism for sex.

* ''TengenToppaGurrenLagann'': When Yoko expresses her feelings for Kamina by kissing him, he reciprocates with a kiss of his own and then remarks that he'll "pay her back ten times over" after they return from their upcoming battle.

* At the end of the ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' Edward Elric uses "Equivalent Exchange" in order to propose to his childhood friend Winry Rockbell. Winry even calls him dumb for using such an awkward term.

* [[{{Macross}} The Macross franchise]] features a multipurpose euphemism in "Deculture", borrowed from Zentraedi slang, originally a profanity of some kind, but by the latest entries in the series it's become human slang meaning, roughly, "awesome!" Zentraedi wishing to still use it as a profanity usually use the full phrase "Yakh deculture!"

Whoever originally wrote the One Piece entry really butchered what actually happened in the story. And I'm not even sure if the entry qualifies to be perfectly honest.
* [[Manga/OnePiece The inhabitants]] of [[LadyLand Amazon Lily]] have a tendency to use the world "jewels" to refer to testicles, best seen with their interaction with [[IdiotHero Luffy]]. Now, thanks to Luffy, they think that men carry their family jewels (as in real jewels) in a small skin sack near their legs. Luffy, being [[IdiotHero Luffy]], doesn't understand this and is natural horrified when they ask to see them

* Anime fandoms in general have "plot" as a euphemism for "Breasts". It stems from the oft repeated phrase: "I watch anime for the plot" when faced with a group or individual who holds a combination of (largely negative) anime sterotypes (Always having girls with [[GagBoobs big chests]] and a focus on nothing but fanservice to begin with). While it comes from these negative origins, the euphemism is heavily used by fans.

* The famous ''Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail'' 'tracts of land' euphemism is carried over into ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia''- Ukraine's GagBoobs are often referred to as her 'huge tracts of land'. Including in canon, ''by her brother''. Which is funny, because [[JustifiedTrope Ukraine ''does'' have]] [[ComicallyMissingThePoint 'large tracts of land']] in RealLife.

* One episode of ''Anime/SailorMoon'' had Makoto (Sailor Jupiter) argue that she was best suited for the main role in a school play, because she had the largest breasts. When it was translated for American broadcasting, she instead claimed to have the greatest talent. However, there was no way for them to remove the rather unambiguous gesture that accompanied the line and its original meaning. Since then, SM fans enjoy using the word 'talent' and 'being talented' for... well, having large breasts. ** Another unusual euphemism for Sailor Moon: Haruka (Sailor Uranus) and Michiru (Sailor Neptune) were lesbians in the original Japanese anime and manga. But in Cloverway's English dub, they became "cousins." As in [[KissingCousins Cousins who kiss.]]
