Precision F Strike:
This xkcd strip features a textbook F strike at the end.
Pulled off by GRACE of , stunning everyone, although the line itself was censored. While playing El Goonish Shive Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo DS:
Grace: "DIE BY THE SHELLS OF YOUR FALLEN COMRADES YOU @#$! TURTLES!"
have made a running joke out of this with "Roll says the F word".
Bob and George In fact, in the commentaries the author invokes the idea behind this trope, and only drops the F-Bomb (uncensored, at least) about once a year, in a dramatically appropriate context. Dave Anez abandoned this rule during the final year-and-a-half of the comic—which indicated/foreboded just how badly the crap was hitting the fan.
invoked this in Dominic Deegan this strip, the one time where someone's cursing wasn't cut short or in untranslated Orcish.
And now they have done it a second time, here. Mookie, the author, comments that he didn't want to do it, but considering the character and the situation, it was the only word that would fit.
And the comic's first real F-bomb, here. As the author said, "I make no apologies and neither does [the character]."
Rocky doesn't speak, but he finds other ways to get his point across.
has a Gunnerkrigg Court barely-censored Precision B Strike in this strip.
In , after being forced to replace all his curses with "boop" the entire time he's been Erfworld Trapped in Another World, Parson concludes his Screw Destiny speech (and the first book) with a very satisfying "Fuck... You!!"
only manages to pull this off because it's Questionable Content Hannelore.
example: Though the characters swear plenty of times in the comic, it's usually censored. Hanna delivers an uncensored F-strike when Hanna Is Not a Boy's Name trying to bring Conrad back to life, meant to reflect the seriousness of the situation. It works.
Throughout its over five-year run, has used swearwords sparingly, and has never printed them uncensored. (This was Penny and Aggie justified in its first two years, at any rate, when the creators were trying to get it syndicated.) However, in early 2010 there were two notable exceptions for dramatic purposes:
The bigoted, mentally disturbed Hubbard-follower Xena uses the N-word uncensored. (This results in her getting knocked unconscious in the very next strip.)
Social outcast Helen's bitter inner monologue, as she runs away, ends with the words " Fuck you, Penny. Fuck you, Belleville. Goodbye." Particularly unexpected as her monologue begins with the milder "Screw you."
A later example occurs when Sara, overwhelmed by the multiple stresses her reality show has placed on her, says "Shit" as she breaks down crying in Rich's arms.
In , The Watcher utters one when one of the protagonists Burning Stickman Presents... Something! knocks the storyline off the rails by ensuring Colonel's, and therefore Iris's, survival during the events of
. Mega Man X4 : New dog/ Housepets! human trapped in a dog's body King delivers a censored, Atomic strike in the 2009 Christmas arc.
This page of , after the temple the dwarves had built suddenly collapsed.
The Gods Of Arr Kelaan Jessie to Carrie on this strip of
Loserz manages to make it a Sluggy Freelance Crowning Moment Of Awesome, Moral Event Horizon, Despair Event Horizon and the de facto moment of Cerebus Syndrome for the whole strip: 
Lampshaded in this Goblins strip.
This exchange from is actually the first time in the entire lifespan of the work where the word fuck is actually used without any form of censorship:
8-Bit Theater Black Mage: Mission accomplished, Sarda.
I haven't done it yet.
Sarda: Black Mage: Oh. Fuck.
In , while most of the characters swear fairly liberally, there are also a few characters who have only done so a few times. However, whenever a server player starts the game for the first time, the first thing they do is usually tear out their client player's toilet, and let loose an "oh fuck". Homestuck Rose and Jade demonstrate.
TT: I will be travelling to the sun
TT: By which I do mean the GREEN MOTHERFUCKING SUN.
And Jade again here, although it's implied she's much less merciful when talking to Karkat...
GG: I SAID PASSWORD FUCKASS!!!!!
GG: whoops sorry
GG: ive been having too many password arguments with karkat i guess :p
Kanaya: See I'm Explaining This Badly
Kanaya: All I'm Saying Is Basically
Kanaya: Fuck That Guy
Of all people, Equius gets one as well.
CT: D —> Where the fuck are all my fresh towels
After she finds out that her ex-boyfriend has turned (even more) evil and is trying to join the , Feferi uses one.
Big Bad Done by someone less than ten (Cloud's sister Yuna) in , but immediately Sandra and Woo followed by an apology when she learns how rude it was to call the watchers "motherfuckers".
In , The Order of the Stick this could be considered one, considering that it's right after Haley regains her voice. Also a This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!!
goes its first year without even a mild curse word ( The Interstellar Tea House in English, anyway), then suddenly Pumpkin has an Oh, Crap moment and drops an f-bomb. Made intentionally amusing by the fact that Pumpkin is a Sierk, a sentient but furry and adorable alien.
To date, has featured exactly Dresden Codak two uses of the bad swears, and they were both from collaborations with guest artists.
In Hati lets one loose after Off-White, Sköll attacks him.
In , the in-over-her-head Patty makes heavy use of The Illustrated Guide To Law self-censoring euphemisms ("cheese and crackers!") throughout her police encounter... until she's tossed in jail at the end, which warrants a sulky f-strike.
: U13 Raditz makes one during his fight against U3 Bardock, when Bardock becomes a Super Saiyan:
Dragon Ball Multiverse
U13 Raditz: Oh fuck... that's so unfair!
