Added DiffLines:

* Happens twice in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRescueBots''. The first occasion is when Blurr is reading some Cybertronian graffiti:
-->'''Blurr:''' "Autobots... smell li--" Okay, that's just rude.
** Later, when the culprit, Bounce, vandalizes Blades' back:
--->'''Blades:''' What did he write?\\
'''Chase:''' Nothing that I care to repeat in polite company.


-->'''Paddington:''' ''(with forced calm)'' Mr Brown. That is ''extremely'' rude.

** He does this again as a teenager in ''Film/InfinityWar'', shocking the entire team. Apparently Vin Diesel's copy of the scripts include translations of Groot's dialogue so he knows what emotion to put into his lines...

* In the Polish classic comedy ''Miś'' the protagonist is watching a children's ShowWithinAShow while trying to figure out what to do. The specific episode he gets is about how the kids stop one of their group from excessive swearing - and the swears he uses include "butterfly's leg!" This is treated by the other children as height of profanity.

Added DiffLines:

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/DangerMouse'' has DM and Penfold in transit to a caper when they happen upon the Northern Lights:
-->'''DM:''' The Aurora Borealis.\\
'''Penfold:''' Now, now...language.

Added DiffLines:

* Satirical News Site BabalyonBee, in a similar vain to the previous mentioned foul mouth of Groot, once featured an article calling for Groot to apologize and demanding he be removed from Twitter after he said "I am Groot" at a Botany event, much to the shock of the scandalized crowd.


* ''Videogame/AHatInTime'': "Peck" is a swear word to birds, at least according to DJ Grooves, who will panic if you use it on live TV and quickly cut the broadcast. It sets him at odds with the Conductor, who [[SirSwearsALot outright abuses the word]] when upset ([[ViolentGlaswegian and he's almost always upset]]).

With the multiplayer update, having the [[VagueAge elementary school aged]] Hat Kid/Bow Kid yell "peck" became one of the emotes.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheBelgariad'': Occurs InUniverse when Belgarath asks the Gorim about Zandramas, the ''Malloreon'' sequel series' BigBad, only for the Gorim to react with utter shock -- the name is the most profound curse in his people's language, such that Belgarath never knew because nobody in seven thousand years was willing to repeat it to him before.


* During a [[SideQuest side quest]] in ''VideoGame/DestroyAllHumans2'', Pox yells out the word "frak", and tells Crypto that it's an "ancient Cyton curse word".

Added DiffLines:

* One case in ''VideoGame/HypnospaceOutlaw'' involves investigating a hack distributing [[ShockSite shock images]]. They're described by various characters as scarring, but they're really just creepy photo edits made up of feet, potatoes and eggs with googly squid eyes stuck on.


* ''[Series/{{Dinosaurs}}'' had one episode in which a great controversy erupted over the word "smoo".

* On 30Rock as Kenneth becomes steadily more {{Flanderized}}, he increasingly offended and/or apologetic about ever-milder and increasingly unclear "bad words." At one point he exclaims "excuse the language, but no thank you!"

* Rick of ''[[WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty]]'' mentions that for a certain race of alien species, the word "glip-glop" is "if the [[NWordPrivileges N-word]] and the [[CountryMatters C-word]] had a baby and it was raised by all the bad word for Jews." He then promptly greets a group of the aforementioned aliens with "[[HypocriticalHumor What up, my glip-glops!]]"

Added DiffLines:

** The franchise also uses "Zark" as a multi-purpose swear word; it's never explicitly confirmed in-text, but like the real-word "Jeez", it appears to be a corruption of the name "Zarquon", who is a religious figure of some note.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/TheMansionOfE'' uses both "Zark" and "Bowb", in homage to the sources listed above.
