- The one time Artyom speaks in Metro 2033 is when he yells "guhhh-fffFUCK" when he notices that a derailed train is about to crush him into the ground.
- The Metal Gear series is very low on swearing, so the one F-bomb in Metal Gear Solid 4 is a laser-guided Precision F Strike indeed. Delivered by what turns out to be a mind raped psychopathic teenage girl who never stopped her deranged laughing for years, "It's all so FUCKING HYSTERICAL!!!" manages to creep you like you wouldn't believe.
- Especially considering the creepy nature of the boss fight, against an enemy who uses stealth against you. Cue the nightmares.
- In the Japanese release of Metal Gear Solid 3, EVA, when cornered by Colonel Volgin, snarled "fuck you" before trying to shoot at him with a concealed gun. In the English version, the line was changed to the more mild "go to hell" - although it was saved by the voice actress's delivery.
- In Neo Contra, Bill Rizer does this by using "Hell" while against Pheromone Contra (Lucia) and Master Contra.
Tiberius: Go to hell!
- At the apex of the story in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories (a Disney game), Axel rewards himself with one of these for a job well done, although it was rewritten into a different, F Strike-less line in the PS2 version.
- In Mega Man 7, Bass throws in a rather unexpected "damn" in a dialogue toward the end of Shade Man's stage. Mild by the standards of a T-rated game, but it was quite surprising in a KA-rated SNES game. Too bad it was taken out in the Anniversary Collection.
- Mega Man X had a couple "damn"s in the early games, which were kept in the X Collection. Although the fourth game missed its chance by having a late boss character shout, "See you in the underworld!" rather than the less unwieldy "See You in Hell!"
- In the X Collection, one "damn" (from X no less) was actually added for some reason.
- Mega Man Battle Network 2 also has one, when, after you defeat MagnetMan, and expose Gauss as the hijacker, he lets out a rather unexpected "Damn it to hell!"
- MMBN2 had several other times incidences as well, unlike the rest of the series. Oh, and the guy wasn't hijacking the plane, he was trying to crash it.
- Example using mild swears: despite being rated T, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance almost always uses words like "blast" and "dastard". Ike only says "damn" if he dies (which is also Game Over).
- In Gradius V, if you lose your last life after having gone through 6 stages on a single credit, the announcer exclaims, "What the hell?"
- In Half-Life 2, Dr. Breen, ever the the classy and intelligent villain, never stating so much as a "darn," let's out a loud and clear "Oh, shit!" when he sees Gordon and Alyx are close behind him during his conversation with an Advisor.
- In Team Fortress 2's "Meet the Spy" the BLU spy drops a Yo Momma Joke, quickly followed by a (censored) F Strike. Since the Spy has always been the picture of sophistication, these two combine to be absolutely hilarious.
BLU Scout: What are you, the President of [the RED spy's] fan club?
...No. That would be your mother
. *produces compromising pictures of the Scout's mother and the RED Spy*
BLU Scout: What the?...
BLU Spy: Indeed. And now he's here to f*ck us! So listen up, boy, or pornography starring your mother will be the second worst thing to happen to you today.
- Doubles at making the Spy Sophisticated as Hell.
- Spy drops another in "Expiration Date", when, after Scout has humiliated him in front of the rest of the team, the kid shows up at Spy's smoking room to ask for something. The response follows thus:
Spy: Scout. Please. Go f*ck yourself!
- Lost Planet 2 doesn't have any qualms with using foul language when appropriate, but this line from the lead Rounder at the end of Episode 3 takes the cake: as he mans the controls of a railway gun to fight a massive Akrid:
- In Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, the third boss in the game consists of a gigantic crab that the heroine Shanoa must fight all the way up a lighthouse. At the top, Shanoa gets into an elevator, tells the crab to "go to Hell," rides the elevator all the way down, crushing the crab. This is made all the more awesome by the line appearing as a sound bite rather than as a text box.
- It bears mention that the original Japanese phrase ("Jigoku ni ochiro.") translates to "Fall into Hell." and, when used in its entirety, is at least somewhat less offensive than its English equivalent.
- Castlevania: Judgment has one of Grant's "damn"age grunts be a certain four-letter word. Can you guess what it is?
- 1213 has exactly one piece of profanity, and in the special edition commentary, Yahtzee makes note of how it emphasises how absolutely pissed off the guy saying it is:
Westbury: "How much these things cost? Is that all you have to say? You... You... YOU FUCKING BUREAUCRAT!" * BANG*
- The Warcraft games don't shy away from milder curses like "damn" or "hell", but the harsher ones can still be surprising:
(to Arthas in Warcraft III
) Give my regards to hell, you son of a bitch
(After being scolded by Garithos
in Warcraft III
) Dwarf Rifleman:
They did not pay us enough to put up with that arsehole
(to Sylvanas in World of Warcraft
): Watch your clever mouth, bitch.
- In the X68000 version of Thunder Force II, losing your last life causes the player character to shout "Shit!"
- In the white chamber, though she uses other swear words throughout the game, Sarah uses the F word only once, when she's being shocked in an electric chair and the laser gun beside her doesn't work.
- In the final moments of Modern Warfare 2, you, as Soap, get stabbed in the chest by General Shepherd, whom you've been chasing for the majority of the last mission. As you stir, he gives you his Motive Rant, starting:
Shepherd: Five years ago, I lost 30,000 men in the blink of an eye. And the world just fuckin' watched.
- In "Wolverines", when an enemy drone targets the restaurant you're on top of: "Ramirez, get the fuck off the roof!"
- From DonPachi: "WARNING: This is not similation. Get ready to destoroy the enemy. Target for the weak points of f**kin' machine. Do your best you have ever done."
- In the Japanese version of Real Bout Fatal Fury Special, good-natured Franco Bash's win quote against Geese Howard is "Fuckyou! Geese!"
- In the Japanese audio for Sonic Adventure, Sonic says "shit" once. Translated to something along the lines of "darn" in the American version.
- Though it's not as vulgar as the other examples on this page, there IS one moment from the normally G-rated language Final Fantasy VIII that deserves a mention. When one minor character very NEARLY kills another by accident (by hanging him with a fishing line, no less), the almost-victim understandably berates his idiotic pal, finishing up by calling him "DUMBASS!" Complete with red text and a slashing sound as the word as said, to drive home the point that yes, this is as foul as the language is going to get. Maybe they were trying to avoid what happened with Final Fantasy VII.
- In Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Tidus calls Jecht a "self centered old bastard".
- Mass Effect 2: "Don't fuck with Aria."
- Sidonis also drops one after you tell him that Garrus is trying to snipe him.
Shepard: I'm the only thing between you and a bullet in the head.
- Also, if you play as a paragon Shepard, flipping off to The Illusive Man becomes this..
- And if you've got enough points to make the Renegade speech at Tali's trial:
Shepard: Do whatever you want with your toy ships! But leave my crew out of your political BULLSHIT!
- And in the same incident, Kal'Reeger if he's still alive.
Kal'Reeger: Tali's done more for this fleet than you assholes ever will!
- And yet another one from Tali's trial, this time if she does get exiled;
Shala'Raan: I don't give a vorcha's ass about the fleet! I was trying to protect you, Tali!
- Udina's entrance if Anderson was picked to the Council
Udina: — Do the words "political shitstorm" mean anything to you?
Fist: Hey, yeah, that's great. Fuck you, too
- In the third game, EDI takes a break from her Spock Speak if you help her romance Joker.
EDI: He said I didn't have to conform to some feminine ideal in order to impress him. I then called him on his bullshit, and we then proceeded to talk normally.
- Tali of all people gets on in the third game when the Alliance shows up to bomb a Cerberus base to bits.
Tali: Choke on it, Cerberus bastards!"
- Similarly, in Fallout 3, if you've been playing with positive karma, you get the opportunity to pull one off when you're being captured and interrogated by Col. Autumn, who wants the activation code for the purification device.
Autumn: You tell me that code, and maybe we can work out a deal for you.
The Lone Wanderer: Fuck you. I'm not telling you anything.
Autumn: I'll be honest. I'm running out of patience here, and I'm not looking to play games with you. You tell me that code, or it's going to cost you.
The Lone Wanderer: No, seriously. Fuck you.
Burnt Skeleton's placard: We're dying out here, motherfuckers!
- Talon Company Merc: "I want this one's head on a fucking plate!"
- The biggest one is probably from Madison Li at the end of "The Waters of Life." Normally a cold, but certainly clear-headed woman, she ends up watching the man she harbored unrequited feelings for sacrifice himself, and then had the dream of Project Purity crushed for a second time. After that, her life, and the lives of all her companions are put into the hands of the kid who's a constant reminder to Li of James. Then, finally after narrowly escaping death, she's denied sanctuary at the one place where the group would be guaranteed safety. She sounds like she's on the verge of tears.
Madison: Lyons! I know you're in there, I know you can hear me, you open this goddamn door right now!
- In Fallout: New Vegas, a memorable one occurs when after tracking Benny down to the penthouse he's staying in, if allowed to leave he quickly double-crosses the Courier and attempts to murder them (again) by sending up a squad of goons. He then calls over the intercom.
Benny: The cleaners will knock twice. Tell them to be thorough.
Courier: It's a real mess in here - four bodies.
- Since being a package courier often involves trekking across post-apocalyptic wastelands, often by oneself, it seems no wonder Cass claims that one of the rules of the Caravan Wastes is apparently "Don't fuck with the guy who delivers your mail".
- StarCraft plays both sides of this trope. Units will frequently refer to "chicken-[beep] outfits" and not having time to "f[beep]k around", but in cutscenes "shit" and the like are thrown uncensored whenever it's deemed dramatic enough.
- Remember Kerrigan calling herself the queen bitch of the galaxy? The (unofficial) Hungarian version made her the "Fuckin' Queen of the Galaxy".
- Bayonetta, surprisingly, as Bayonetta herself actually doesn't swear much in-game.
- In Final Fantasy XIII, Sazh's baby pet Chocobo actually pulls one of these off when "The Pulsian Chocobos are being attacked by your mission target", which Sazh can easily translate.
Sazh: Hurry the what up?
- "But you have told them my last code, damn you book, I'm ready to explode!"
- Fail at Item Crafting with Claude in the Star Ocean: The Second Story and you'll be treated to a nice, hammy "DAMNIT!!!"
- Some of the characters in Killer7 let these out after hitting a Heaven Smile's weak spot - young punk Con Smith jubilantly shouts "FUCK you!" and shady thief Coyote Smith snarls, "You're fucked." Depending on how good the player is at hitting the Smiles' weak points, this can quickly turn into a Cluster F-Bomb.
- Henry Townshend of Silent Hill 4 has a "What the hell?" which is used repeatedly around the first part of the game.
- Near the ending of the game after not being able to stop adult!Walter from kidnapping child!Walter Henry says "Damn it!"
- Heather from Silent Hill 3, right when Claudia's plan is about to come to fruition: "SHUT YOUR STINKING MOUTH, BITCH!".
- Earlier, when the amusement park changes into its nightmare version, "Oh hell!"
- From Braid: "Now we are all sons of bitches."
- In Primal, when Jen encounters her first demon, she slowly looks up his body and to his face and summarizes her emotions with one heartfelt "Ohh... shit!"
- Sam Fisher of Splinter Cell hardly ever curses, which is particularly noticeable in Conviction, where he's pitted against Mooks who prefer ClusterFBombs So, throughout the game he has a few that really stand out, particularly when he tells people to go fuck themselves.
- In Malta, having no family left, his agency wanting to kill him, trying to find a reason to go on, Sam is pursued by thugs hired by a drug and arms dealer to kill him. After easily (and brutally) taking care of the Mooks, he finds the leader who tried to run away, but ran into a dead end in a bathroom.
Sam: Looking for me, asshole?
- In a Flash Back mission during the Gulf War, Sam is captured by (presumably) Ba'athist soldiers and is interrogated by two men, and apparently of the English those two men have learned, half are vulgar terms. When they threaten to Electric Torture Sam, his only response is a quiet, gruff "Go fuck yourselves. I'll be here when you're done." For maximum effect, barge in and rescue Sam right after this point, but right before they start torturing him.
- Then there's this exchange. Sam has been shot in the shoulder and had his hands bound by Grim, who for all Sam knew at that point may have still been suffering from Chronic Backstabbing Disorder due to what had been going on throughout the game. He's in front of a similarly captive President, Smug Snake Tom Reed, and about 5 actual highly trained splinter cells, and he still drops one.
Tom Reed: So Sam, how does it feel knowing you're about to go down in history as the man who assassinated President Caldwell?
Sam: (still calm) Fuck you, Reed.
- The American dub of Golden Sun: Dark Dawn has the Heroic Mime drop one of these in the form of Symbol Swearing.
- And if there was such thing as a Stealth F-Strike, try using the Angry emote after Ryu Kou steals the Magma Orb.
Karis: Wow... graphic!
- In Persona 3 Portable, Stepford Smiler Saori casually uses an S-strike at one point, just to see what it feels like to say whatever she wishes. Given that her S-Link keeps steadily rolling downhill, the poor girl's probably due a few of these.
- Persona 4 gives the main character a chance to say "Calm the hell down!" during a particularly... tense... moment after his cousin/surrogate little sister seemingly dies and the main characters contemplate killing the man they think is responsible. The above line is used in order to calm down the protagonist's understandably furious friends and get them to think more rationally. The protagonist can curse several times throughout the game, but the delivery of this is what makes it especially poignant; He YELLS and gets visibly angry for the first, and only, time in the entire game.
- The opposite decision's line is just as unexpected, but more chilling: "Throw the bastard in."
- Assassins Creed II delivers a perfect Precision F-Strike combined with a massive Mind Screw after beating up Rodrigo Borgia and meeting Minerva. What. The. Fuck?! indeed...
- In Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, when Big Bad Gabriel Nowak taunts you about Joanna being shot.
Gabe: What do you get when you cross a bullet and a pretty little intelligence officer?
Bishop: Fuck you.
- In Resident Evil 5 Chris Redfield has a pretty good one towards the end, when forcing an overdose serum of onto Wesker: "I've had enough... of your BULLSHIT!!"
- In Devil May Cry 4, when fighting Sanctus one of the things Nero will say when using the Devil Bringer is "I'm not interested in your bullshit!", with a punch to the face for effect.
- One of the things Nero says when doing a DTd Buster on an Alto Angelo sounds a lot like "fuck you!", but this is somewhat debateable since it's not as easy to make out as the above one.
- In Baten Kaitos Origins, Sagi, normally a Nice Guy, will drop these whenever he gets really pissed off.
Go to hell, you son of a bitch! You hurt my mother!
- Touhou 8: Imperishable Night, stage 4 with Marisa/Alice. Due to a bad misunderstanding, best friends Reimu and Marisa wind up having an actually for serious fightnote , and we know things got real when Marisa tells Reimu:
Marisa: Bitch, get out of the way!
- While anyone would have a clean mouth compared to Ragna the Bloodedge, Prof. Kokonoe, and Hazama (all from BlazBlue), Makoto Nanaya's choice of language indicates that [A] something is really not right or [B] she's not happy with you. That said, she is more prone to swearing when [C] by herself.
Example A: What the eff, guys? Just because Mommy can be a psycho-bitch on occasion doesn't mean you have to cast a sociopath!
Example B: Shut the hell up! We were never tools, you stupid asshole!
Example C: If Tsubaki were here, she'd give me such shit for sleeping in the middle of an important mission... never mind that I'm on an aircraft and can't do crap, anyway...
- Likewise, you know Valkenhayn is angry when his language goes bad (anything regarding Terumi fouls his mood real quick).
"Imbeciles! Don't they realize what that shitty little cur is capable of...?"
- In Katawa Shoujo, a few examples come up.
- Lilly Satou never swears at all, but late in her route, she says "Dammit!", a symptom of her pent-up anger over having to go home to Scotland and leave Hisao behind.
- Hisao tends to use some profanity in his narration, but the most vulgar he gets is when dissatisfied with his relationship with Emi at one point, says he thinks they're "friends who happen to fuck".
- Late in Rin's route, Hisao, venting his frustrations with his girlfriend, responds to her with "Bullshit" before verbally tearing into her.
- Cole Phelps in L.A. Noire loses it when his crooked ex-partner Roy Earle snidely insults the dead Courtney Sheldon.
He was a better man than you'll ever know. You say one more word about him and I will blow your fucking head off!
- Immortal Souls is mostly clean aside from the occasional "bastards", but at one point offers a Symbol Censored one from a character who's totally fed up with getting You Are Number Six treatment:
Desmond: Subject 2401, you must obey-!
- In Syndicate (2012), Jack Denham is civil for most of the game. When you speak to him face-to-face at the end, though, he's become more rude, including using a full F-bomb.
- The manual for Doom makes sure to spell out that the BFG-9000 is short for "Big Fucking Gun".
- In Borderlands 2, after doing her best not to swear throughout the whole game, Angel uses her last breath to call Jack an asshole.
- The language in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is usually pretty mild, which makes it all the more satisfying when Ulfric Stormcloak calls it like it is in regards to Elenwen (at a peace conference, no less):
Ulfric: To think that we would sit down with that...Thalmor bitch!
- Donkey Kong 64 has this line during the DK Rap (to put it in perspective, this occurs in an E-rated game): "He may move slow, he can't jump high, / But this Kong's one hell of a guy!" This gathered huge amounts of complaints from parents, so in the remix in Super Smash Bros. Melee, they changed it to "heck" (despite the fact that Melee is a T-rated game).
- A few examples from Brutal Legend:
Eddie: I told you not to climb on that, you stupid mother—[a notification appears on-screen asking if the player would like to hear the swears, or bleep them]...FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT!
Lars: The time has come for you to SHUT THE HELL UP, Lionwhyte!
Eddie: Dude, how 'bout this? How about you pick up your little baby foo-foo, lay down your diaper, and GO DO YOUR FUCKING JOB RIGHT NOW?!
- In Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil, after defeating Cursed Leorina, she falls to her knees, crying "Damn it! Damn it all!" In an E-rated game. Also, in the GBA game, Empire of Dreams (also rated E), Klonoa says "Damn it! Not again!" when Jillius' troops spot him in World 5.
- Dead Island: Riptide does not shy away from the F word at all, for the most part. The exception being Xian, whose reaction to smashing a bulldozer loaded with fuel into the quarantine zone is a small "oh my god." It takes something more than that to set her off, once after the virus causes a massive Berserker Rage, and again at the end where after learning the virus outbreak was deliberate and the victims experimented on and having to stop a crazed, purposely infected Harlow, confronts Serpo who openly admits to causing the disaster to test and later sell the virus.
- In Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory After Neptune abandons Nepgear in the past Gamindustry for Plutia, Nepgear swears for the first time.
Nepgear: What the HELL! NEPTUNE!
- Whenever Cyborg in Injustice: Gods Among Us swears, it arguably feels like this trope since he is heavily patterned after the cartoon version of the character, including having the same voice actor. So when he says "You're lookin' for an ass-whoopin!", it sounds like Cyborg from the cartoon is swearing.
- Shadow the Hedgehog has the infamous "Where's that DAMN fourth Chaos Emerald?" line. (Interestingly enough, the subtitles put the emphasis on "fourth", but the voice actor puts the emphasis on "damn"). Also, when Shadow dies in that game, he'll exclaim "Damn! Not here!"
- One of the routes you can take in Facade has one when Grace admits she's been secretly painting to Trip:
Grace: I am an artist, Trip. Fuck you!
- Dragon Age: Inquisition
- The honor of the first f-bomb in the games themselves goes to Blackwall.
- The Iron Bull drops a couple.
- When working out his feelings about a demon of fear...
The Iron Bull: And who killed you?! That's right! Iron fucking Bull!
- If he defects from the Qun...
The Iron Bull: Tal-Va-fucking-shoth.
- After a third person walks in on him naked just after having sex with the Inquisitor...
Cassandra: Is something the matt-Aah!
The Iron Bull: Oh for fuck's sake!
- Dorian drops one while Calling the Old Man Out for attempting Cure Your Gays with Blood Magic.
Halward: I only wanted what was best for you.
Dorian: You wanted the best for you! For your fucking legacy! Anything for that.
- A possible piece of Party Banter between Cassandra and Cole has the former asking the latter if his powers as The Empath enable him to pick up on any secret pain afflicting Evil Sorcerer Erimond, a quest arc villain. The usually airy and cryptic Cole readily responds "No. Erimond is an asshole."
- In Dragon Age 2, when your party interrupts a Templar about to unjustly harm a mage, Varric drops a gem if he's in your party:
Varric: (responding to a "Who Are You?
" from the Templar) "It's the Divine, come all the way from Orlais to tell you personally what a jackass you are."
- There isn't a whole lot of cursing in Strife: Quest for the Sigil at all, but when you witness the leader of the resistance, Macil, descend into Sigil-induced madness and self-perceived godhood first-hand, your Mission Control/Voice with an Internet Connection, Blackbird, lets loose one well-timed curse in response:
Macil: I am the one God! I need his spirit to be free, so that I can leave my body and join him in flight! You have no idea what you possess, and what terror you've faced! The one God must be free! He will reward me... I will be one!
Blackbird: Sick fuck... Waste him!
- While the Boss in Saints Row: The Third has no qualms about swearing, one instance stands out in particular in how appropriate for the moment it feels. After falling out of a plane, hijacking a battle tank mid-air, and fending off an entire wing of jet fighters with it, the Boss finally lands in Steelport—only to discover that the whole neighborhood was turned into a localized Zombie Apocalypse the Saints now have to deal with, too.
Boss: *exasperated groan* "Oh, fuck my life." *hops back into the tank*
" when the Vice Kings go after the Saints in Ben King's simulation, King releases this combined with a
