Should Kara Zor-L live, she will inevitably prove to be a hindrance to us. It is regrettable that she must die. But die she must. There is no need for battle. Our audience has left the stands. This show of combat pleased him, but it was most inefficient. Please. Let me do what is required, and I promise to make her death as quick as I possibly can. Your own will be even quicker, and as painless as possible. The decision is up to you.
Fury: You know what our answer is, big man. Come and get it.
Nuklon: Nope. Our answer is—go to hell!
- The Child of Love: In chapter 2, Shinji notices it has been a long time since Asuka left the apartment to go to the bakery and he gets worried since she is pregnant:

Things went from bad to worse, really worse. But, after their discussion, both Nia and Yoko are totally remorseful of it.

- If you can get the DC Nation universe version of Connor Hawke to the point of swear words, it's usually one of those.
- For the most part, the Shocker fan fic Polarity avoids any swearing worse than "damn" or "crap." Even after fighting zombies, avoiding heroes, brawling with villains, and getting his ass handed to him night in and night out, Herman Schultz and company keep the language tame...until Big Bad the Grim Reaper shows Shocker what happened to the last guy who turned him down, revealing the Punisher trussed up like a stuck pig slowly being bled to death.
After my jaw dropped for a few seconds, I decided it was time to sum up this entire situation in a very simple and succinct phase. "You're fucking nuts."
- In Pretty Cure Heavy Metal episode 24, Shugo fakes an Australian accent and lands a precision N strike in a parody of the N word privileges supposedly held by white Australians. The rest of the N words are spoken by the token black, who has all the N words in episode 25.
- Later, in episode 51, Shugo drops an uncensored F bomb right before she dies from her wounds, just to maximize the impact. She gets better.

- From the Digimon Adventure 01 and V-Tamers crossover fanfiction The Teacher of All Things: "THIS IS FOR GOTSUMON, YOU BASTARD!"
- Elemental Chess Trilogy: "You leave my family alone, you cowardly son of a bitch!" It's a Crowning Moment of Awesome for the speaker, and an odd sort of Crowning Moment of Heartwarming since the "family" in question are the speaker's True Companions. It's also the only time in the entire series that anyone uses a swear word other than "damn."

Draco: You can't kill a fucking demon with a pillow!
- In another Harry Potter fan fic straight-laced Percy realizes that the Minister of Magic is under the Imperius curse, which could only mean Voldemort is controlling him. His mental response: "Oh, shit."

- In What About Witch Queen? the first and only so far use of an F-word in story comes when a men sent to kill Elsa discovers he can't do this, despite his would-be victim already missing part of the brain, the spine and connection between head and the rest of the body.

- In Pretty Cure Hollywood Stars, Lina gets a Precision Black Strike, and because she's white it is NOT the N word (it's been stated numerous times in-story that she isn't racist, though she does drop an epiphet from time to time and gets called on it by either one of the other characters or the narrator). Here's a hint: think Clint, for whom the author named her.
- In Reconciliation, this happens at two different points in a single chapter, as Lilly is undergoing an emotional breakdown after her husband Hisao's funeral.
Akira: "Help me to understand here, Lilly, because right now Iím getting really fucking scared. Iíve never seen you like-Ē
Lilly: Thatís bullshit. My husband is dead. Heís dead, Hanako, and heís not coming back.Ē
- Talking of Gurren Lagann fics, Nia also gives a Precision F-Strike in Sound Of Heaven Pulling Down, during a discussion, but she doesn't seem to be aware of the meaning of the word "fuck". Simon even lampshades it, saying he won't swear next to her anymore.

"What did you do to the Princesses you bucking son-of-a-bitch!?"

- Keena & the Defendants of Constan Magic Academy has two from Keena herself to Mr. X in chapter 2:

- Kuushou aka Kyuubi doesn't necessarily shy away from cursing in Swapping the Cage. However, one occasion that really stands out is when he learns that virtually every ninja skill (including chakra control exercises) is considered advanced training, and thus not taught until after graduation.

- Three in Perfection Is Overrated
- When Mai encounters Nao in the hospital, learns about her comatose mother, the incident that led to that, and that Nao had to let that incident happen to avert a temporal paradox, she offers her condolences, but Nao, embittered and thinking of most people's expressions of sympathy as being empty and insincere, shoots back with "You're fucking sorry?".

- After 18 chapters of nothing worse than "damn", "hell" and "arsehole" in Warriors of the World, the character most likely to swear calls someone else a "little shit". This turns out to be an O.O.C.

- Earl Flatbroke in the Empath: The Luckiest Smurf adaptation of The Smurfs and the Magic Flute delivers one: "I don't give a flying fig for what they'll say."
- A relatively mild one from Can You Imagine That? (do keep in mind that it imitates a children's movie):
- Also leads to a narmy moment when Retro later yells "YOU SKANKS!"
- In the Pony POV Series, during the Final Battle between Shining Armor and General-Admiral Makarov (the Big Bad of his arc), Makarov wants the captive Shining to say "I surrender, Solomon".

- From Commander Hackett after Eleya rams her way past the initial encounter with the Klingons.
"Holy shit! Did you see that?!"
- Eleya is a Sir Swears-a-Lot, but she still has an example by swearing in English instead of Bajoran as is more usual for her. This is after Captain Sivuk asks her opinion on no-win scenarios.
"Oh, I believe in no-win scenarios. I also believe they mostly take place because somebody fucked up!"
- Eleya again in "Last Rights", this time in her Internal Monologue:
"The thing I hate most about surface warfare? Itís the smell. Iíve showered twice and I still canít get that awful stench of earth, smoke, fuel, blood, ozone, and shit out of my nostrils."
- Valkron in Warriors of the World: Soldiers of Fortune never swears any worse than "hell" or "damn" throughout the entire story despite what happens. Which makes this one quite effective.
"Look here, you little shit."
- Peace Forged in Fire has a fair amount of untranslated Rihan swearing and a bit of Farsi, but at one point Morgan tells her command crew that:

Hefty: NOT SMURFING LIKELY!!!

- While known for cursing in I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, it says loads about how exhausted Harry Potter is (both physically and emotionally) that he drops any dirty jokes or insinuations towards Aayla Secura after he comforts a group of slaves he saved and only wearily utters a single line.
Harry: Get the hell off my ship, Jedi.
- Powers of Invisibility has one (by the story's standards) when Marinette asks Juleka for permission to call her parents asshats (after they abandon her again right before Christmas), and then does when Juleka gives it.

- The Undertale fan-video Papyrus Finds a Human plays out largely like a Warner Bros. cartoon, with the human child easily dealing with any traps Papyrus comes up with, and Sans cracking his bad jokes all the while. The trope comes into play with Papyrus' "special attack:"
Papyrus: There is a bomb strapped to my chest, human. Surrender now and I'll disarm it. But if you do not surrender I'll be forced to detonate the device, killing us bo- (the human child casually cuts a wire to disarm the bomb) You edgy bitch... That was a real bomb you maniac!

But not you yourselves, no. You, Captain Kathryn Janeway, and you, Seven of Nine, will be the last act I take as the emotional, petty, being the Cyberman virus left me.

Seven of Nine: "Yeah, fuck you too."
