** Equius Zahhak sticks to genteel curses like "fudgesicles" unless he's extremely flustered, and berates others for foul language, believing it to be a habit of the [[BlueBlood lower classes.]] He was [[DullSurprise once embarrassed]] for having used, [[http://www.homestuck.com/index.php?s=6&p=005331 "shoot."]]
** Jane is similarly mild in her expletives, although unlike Equius she doesn't care about her friends swearing.

Added DiffLines:

* Invoked in ''Fanfic/MyNameIsMolly''. Part of The Operation involves a person's personality being remolded. The villagers are physically unable to curse and instead use minced oaths.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheNightMayor'' is set in the City, a virtual world modeled on 1940s movies. In the City, people can only speak the kind of language that wouldn't get a filmmaker in trouble with UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode. "Darn!" and "Heck!" qualify as "the vilest abuse imaginable".


* The {{Mockumentary}} ''Sons Of Provo'' features a made-up Latter-Day Saints boy band. Among their songs, is ''Dang, Fetch, Oh My Heck'', with the chorus: ''Dang, fetch, oh my heck / What the holy scrud / H-e-double-hockey-sticks / That's frickin', flippin' crud!" It is... [[{{Earworm}} far too catchy]].

* A trait displayed by those who joined Drew Gulak's Campaign For A Better [[Wrestling/{{CZW}} Combat Zone]], including [[Wrestling/PrincessKimberlee Kimber Lee]], who around the same time was dropping {{cluster f bomb}}s in Wrestling/{{WSU}}(ItMakesSenseInContext, sort of).

* Mary Elizabeth Monroe (Wrestling/RingOfHonor's Kelly Klein) was very reluctant to use any words considered swears and would never initiate them in conversation, in an effort to maintain a "rated G" image.

Added DiffLines:

* [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0-swBG9Ne0Vh4OuoJ2bjbA?&ab_channel=rSlash rSlash]] had to start censoring himself with euphemisms in an attempt to keep his videos from being demonetized. It's easy enough with standard swear words, as most of them have a family-friendly substitute. However, more explicit content requires him to get creative. The most common is using "hugging passionately" or variants thereof in place of "sex".

* [[Wrestling/RubyRiott Heidi Lovelace]] almost always stops her cussing at the word's first letter, even in front of what are supposed to be adult audiences because children could still be watching, d-word! Most commonly with the b-word, which when asked she insists is "broad".

Most commonly with the b-word, which when asked she insists is "broad". So you know it was a big deal when she started cussing at the referee to end a match in Absolute Intense Wrestling as Shayna Baszler destroyed Annie Social.
* Similar goes for Lovelace's Buddy System TagTeaam partner Wrestling/SoloDarling. "Cheese And Rice!"

Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* In ''Ride/BackToTheFutureTheRide'' at Ride/UniversalStudios, Doc's "Damn. Damn damn!" is changed to "Darn. Darn darn!" in the queue video when Biff cuts the power.

* Creator/{{PeanutButterGamer}} doesn't use swearing in his videos, he has said he doesn't swear because he doesn't feel he needs to.

->''"I will no longer be allowed to cuss! Instead I will have to use 'television' curse words. That's right, you ''[[AC:motorscooters]]''! Now don't give me any of your ''[[AC:bullfreak]]''! This is some serious ''[[AC:stuff]]'' right now! And if you think I'm some kind of sellout as--''[[AC:airhead]]'' for changing my format, then you... you can go ''[[AC:pluck]]'' yourself!"''

Added DiffLines:

* One origin story for the chimichanga (a deep-fried burrito popular in Tex-Mex cuisine) has the owner of a Mexican restaurant accidentally dropping a burrito into a deep fryer and preventing herself from saying "chingada" (Spanish for "fucked").
